2019 was a whirlwind. It started off meh and ended with a bang. I saw an Instagram post where a person said it felt like the beginning of 2019 and the end were two different years. I feel the same way! Everything I did in the beginning of 2019 was to get me to where I am now. It was a transitory period that dragged on. It seems so slow until you reach the destination. My destination was law school. I spent seven months working for two different companies after graduating early from college. I learned a lot of life lessons that I will share in another blog. I saved money as well. I'm proud of the goals that were set and achieved in that small amount of time.
