24. Bday Wrapup

My birthday was yesterday...24 what?

I can't believe I'm 24, or how much I've accomplished by 24.
I dreamed of working in a buying office and living in the city, blogging all the major events and being a confident business women with someone by my side equally as awesome as me. I see most goals as a moving target. I can accomplish something but look forward to what could be bigger, better, or next. You can always be bigger. As I've grown I have learned so much, but that is not to say I think I know it all. 
I don't.
I don't know it all, but I know how to adapt. I've been through some weird Laguna Beach/ The Hills type shit. Its true what the say, the higher you climb, the your circle gets smaller. People you don't even know hate you and like Jay-Z says... "When you cut the grass the snakes will show." Jay-Z also says "What you eat don't make me shit." I like that little gem. My biggest lesson has been to just do me. Sounds cheesy but it's been my take away this year. Life is too short.
 I always say it BUT, I started this blog in 2008 when I graduated high school. I worked my entire ass off the 4 years I was at SHSU. I accomplished a goal of getting my Bachelors in Fashion Merchandising and my Minor in Marketing and have had a penchant for using both hand in hand 24/7. It was a tool. Education is only a tool. I have used it well and to my advantage and even though I have accomplished what I said I wanted... I always want more. 
Who knows what next year will bring. Good times don't last. Bad times don't last either. Times in general don't last. 
So what's next? 
I guess you'll just have to keep following my blog. I'm apparently always going to be here. And if I'm not always going to be here, my blog will exist on the internet long after I do.
SO until its not fun anymore, EST2008, keep rockin with me.
Thank you for being on this random journey with me.

I've enjoyed following your progress via your blog and will hopefully continue to enjoy reading of your continuing journey here,
on Your Twitter @MalibuMara and on your YouTube Malibu Mara's Channel though I am no longer commenting on YouTube because the attempted Google Plus changes mess things up.
You look fabulous and I love your excellent fashionista blogging. Have a fabulous 25th year !!!
