I love instagram as much as the next twenty-something girl. (Acceptance is the first step right?)
I used to roll my eyes during throwback thursday when my feed becomes clogged with pictures of pictures of days gone by, often filled with people that I don't recognize, people from my friends' lives before I was in them.

However upon reflection, I realized that in this fast paced world we are always looking forward to next weekend... next month... next year. Not only do we look that far in ahead, but we also put things off until next weekend... next month... oh well maybe next year. Being a twenty-something gives you a feeling of invincibility, it almost never crosses my mind that there might not be a next weekend, next month, or next year.

It's not my intention to be all doom-and-gloom over here, rather a simple reminder to reflect while you can. The search for the perfect #tbt never fails to make me smile and laugh (and I don't think I'm the only one), so take a break, reminisce about the good old days, reach out to a friend with the words "remember that one time?" 
How do you like them apples?
A lot actually, thanks for asking ;-)

Think of it as the rearview mirror, you are still traveling forward but a glance back helps orient you and plan a better path. I dare you to #tbt.

If you so desire to see anymore of my horribly embarassing #tbt's you can follow me on instagram @macefaceanne

The 5 Finger Update

Thursday, February 9th was the last time I updated my blog. I'd been in London for a few days, and was about to spend the next five months there.

I apologize for my absence. Turns out some things have changed since then.

1. I survived study abroad.

I made it to London, Paris, Venice, in addition to a variety of places in England and Scotland. It was life-changing in more ways than one.

2. I spent a summer doing "the horse thing."

Competing this horse was truly and once in a lifetime opportunity and I treasure all of the memories; gritty, grubby, and exhausting though they may be. 

3. I started running. And kept running. 13.1 Miles worth.

Honest to goodness don't know how I look this composed at the finish line....

4. I graduated college.

Rain on your graduation is lucky, isn't that how that saying goes?

and drum roll please.....

5. I moved to NYC to get my Master's degree.

Profession: Student Hobby: Brunching

So, if there is still anyone out there, I'm going to try to have another go at this. I hope the past months have treated you as well as they have treated me!
