Hiya! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that you have an incredible Memorial Day too. I spent the weekend running around with my parents looking for supplies for a special project and hanging out with a few dear friends. -Monica

I’ve been having a lot of trouble lately, one of my dear friends is moving away in a month. Really realizing this put  into perspective that in 3 months I will be packing up the life I have known for 22 years and making a big leap across the pond to start on my MA in Art History. I have so many beautiful and wonderful friends, family and acquaintances that I will be leaving behind and I am terrified and thrilled simultaneously. My stomach turned to lead today, because for some reason it became so completely real to me. I want to thank and extend so much love to everyone and if you cared enough to read this, then you are included and if you feel like you don’t deserve such thanks, like I often do, then message me and I will tell you just why I believe you are so wonderful and just how happy I am that you exist. Inspiration is all around us and I find so much in people and I was truly blown away when I was told out of the blue that I inspired someone. It is the 3rd time that I recall being told  that I inspired someone and what really touches me about all this is that these kind words aren’t provoked and they come from people I would never expect to have impacted in anyway and I find that kind of astonishing and incredible. It also encourages me, because it's so encouraging. I feel like people notice the way I live my life, which is important because I believe that the only way to create positive change in the world is to follow Gandhi's method and to embody the change that you wish to see. 
So, to anyone actually reading this, know that I wish you all the best and that you are all beautiful and important people.
