How? How has it already been a year?! I’m no expert on time, but I’m damn-near certain it’s not supposed to move this quickly.
Rather than get all soft and sentimental about what have easily been the most formative twelve months of my life, I’m instead going to break down this last year into a list of my proudest accomplishments in Nashville so far. Sprinkled among those noteworthy (and perhaps not-so noteworthy) achievements will be some personal takeaways, too, which can certainly be applied to other areas of life.
If sappy is what you’re looking for, however, worry not. I’ve got plenty of posts in the archive to curb your craving for emotion. Like this old one reflecting on my big move to Tennessee, or this recent one thanking my apartment for being the best temporary home. (Yes, I wrote a love letter to my downtown studio apartment. No, judgment isn’t welcome here.)
So keep chugging along for a relatable and hopefully inspiring reflection on my first year away from the comforts and ease of home. Warning, it’s a long one.
