Sup Royalty,

Yesterday, March 10, the best day of the year, I celebrated my 22nd birthday! It was such a great day y’all, but before that, I was so worried about it. I’m on Spring Break right now, and instead of being at the beach or traveling somewhere, I’m working on my thesis. Bummer, right? Well, not so much… Before this week, I was a little down about it because I thought that since this is my last Spring Break as an undergrad, I should be doing something big! So I prayed about it, and two things came to me, 1) I need to do everything I can to make sure that I’m prepared to walk across the stage in May and have my Bachelor’s degree in my hand; even if that means sacrificing my Spring Break and 2) the way I see my life going, there will be plenty of opportunities for me to travel and explore the world, this one won’t kill me!

For my day, I treated myself to a pedicure, went to a cookout, and my friends took me out to dinner at a really great Japanese restaurant in Columbia called, Tsunami. I receive so many birthday wishes from loved ones and friends and I laughed, a lot (lol). Sometimes we worry about things that are already being taken care of in our favor and when we just believe that God is working everything out for us, even the small things, we’ll be surprised at how He meets and exceeds our expectations. I’m so grateful to be alive and well for another year and I’m even more excited to see what it has in store for me!

when i first set out to create my blog, i just wanted an outlet to balance my mundane college schedule. but over the years, it has become so much more. writing is how i process my world & the events that take place within it. through aleyarion.com, i seek to help my fellow 20-somethings, like me, working to find light when their paths seem darkened and learn from my mistakes so i can save you the trouble of repeating them. aleyarion.com is witty, vulnerable, and transparent, but most importantly, it's me, unapologetically. peace, peace, peace Aley Arion business inquiries: aleyarion@gmail.com
