It's Been A While But I'm Back!

So I'll admit it. I've been a little MIA from most of my regular schedule. A few weeks ago, I completed from my MPA program at American University and it hasn't really hit me yet. I've already celebrated with my family and close friends but somehow, my mind still thinks I'm going to classes next week. It feels good to be done, but at the same time, reality hasn't hit yet! Luckily, in the process of 'limbo,' I've taken up some self tasks, including rebranding, creating a new website, and focusing more on my art and life experiences. I've spent enough time lost in my own thoughts and afraid to face myself. I really want my new year, my 25th year as of November, to be special and meaningful. This will be the first time I'm not a professional student and can't use the moniker to not consistantly participate in my own life; the first time I'll be 'my own' in a sense. It's time to take what's mine and gear it towards quality and purpose. It's time to refocus so I can wholeheartedly be, Sasha-Loriene... 24/7. As hard as it sounds, certain journeys have to be taken by yourself. So here I am, releasing and opening myself up to whatever falls in my path. Wish me luck :)
