back again.

I feel that it has been a really long time since my last post, and I can see that my intuition is correct. January has been a tough month, for several reasons. Things are finally calmer and I can now return to my blog. I missed you all so much and your blogs too! Anyway, I wanted to write this post to let you know how things are. Regarding college, there are still a couple of things to do, but I'm done with all the tests. Now it's all about written papers, which isn't too bad, since I can work from home. This semester was a little chaotic in terms of evaluations since one of our teachers got sick and she was responsible to 3 different subjects. Therefore, we didn't know what was coming until the first week of this month, when we were told how we would be evaluated. Therefore, everything is pretty much clear and work is in progress. I felt really weak and sick during this month. As I told, January is always a difficult, demanding month, but there were other things on my mind as well. To start off, we have being having some familiar problems, regarding my brother. He is going through this strange phase, in which we doesn't know what he wants and where he is heading to. We have been helping him the best we can and know, but he seems so lost. He has been on my thoughts the whole time and I hope things will get better soon. Besides this, I also had some emotional problems, and that was one of the main reasons why I needed to have a break. Gladly the situation is now solved, and I think that going through all that emotional rollercoster was more than worth it. Even though my life isn't perfect at this exact moment, I feel very secure and at ease. I'm at peace right now, and the things that matter seem to walk in the right direction. I have to admit that I don't really remember the last time I felt this secure, this complete. And I'm enjoying every second of this new found peace! I hope you are all doing well and I'm really glad to announce that I will be back now!

happy new year.

Even though I'm a little late, here I am to wish you all a Happy New Year, full of joy, love and peace. Another year has gone by, and I'm extremely happy and thrilled about all the opportunities and moments that I will experience this year. I'm very thankful to all of you who stayed around in this past year. As most of you know, it was a difficult period for me, but gladly I had all of your kind words and support. I can’t thank you enough for being by my side in this past year. I wish you, your families, friends and blogs the best of the best. I normally don't make any resolutions for the New Year, but I do think about some goals and things I want to experience. For this year, I want to be the best as I can be: a better student, a better daughter and sister, a better friend, a better blogger. For my blog, I wish a lot of success, good contents, new challenges, a continuous growth and your presence. On a different note, Pouring Sentiments hasn't been as active as I wish. First of all, I decided to take this week off, since I wanted to take a moment to live these first days peacefully, without any worries or responsibilities. January will also be a complicated month: even though I won't have classes, I have evaluations until the second week of February. I will definitely try to post on a regular basis, since I have a lot of different post planned (I have to announce the giveaway winner, and I also have two other giveaways planned). From this week on, my segments will also be back. Thank you so much for all of your support and for being present in all of this blog's moments. Happy New Year everyone!
