cookieOptions = {...}; secondhand rose: THE 2013 THEORY/

Tuesday, 1 January 2013


I can't believe that it's finally here. It is finally the year 2013, and if you follow me on Tumblr, Twitter, if we're Facebook friends or if we've had any sort of social interaction within the last couple of years, you know just how much this year means to me. I have been looking forward to this year ever since I dropped out of school, for the second time, in 2010. I have been telling everyone that 2013 will be the best year of my life and I've offered little to no explanation as to why.

I was going through a lot when I made up this theory and I made it up because I needed something to look forward to and to keep me positive. I have spent the last two and a half years refining my life, and trying to make myself the best me possible. In the past two and a half years, I cut out all negative people in my life and I have spent a lot of time working on troubled relationships with people who truly mattered to me. I set a deadline for myself to get back on my feet, and I was pretty generous with the time I allotted for myself. I truly feel as though this year is the beginning of a new chapter in my life and I can't wait for it to start.

I've applied to school, again. I work at a job I legitimately like. I have the best friends in the entire world. I look up to each and every single member of my immediate family. I'm extremely grateful but these accomplishments didn't happen by chance. It took two and a half years of maintenance work. It took two and a half gruelling years to get where I wanted, so I can be stable enough to start fresh. A lot of people think I have tremendous luck, and that might be true at times, but I do work a lot for what I have and it pays off. I set my mind to to certain things, I usually keep quiet about them and more often than not, they become a reality. Things aren't just going to fall into my lap this year, and I know that. This year is going to be great because I'm going into it with no regrets. I'm going into it with a sense of accomplishment and I'm going into it knowing my whole life is ahead of me. I don't feel stuck anymore.  I feel as though I've met just about every goal I've set for myself without those two years and I'm going head first into 2013 and I'm. Not. Looking. Back.


  1. I LOVE this post. I really like the way you think and how you're just so ready for 2013. I think I need to start thinking like this, I just need that motivation to make myself give 2013 the best that I've got! :)


  2. Yay 2013! It will absolutely be everything you wanted and more love! Cheers!!
