Whats up my friends. It's September already, and though I am sad summer is gone, I am so ready for a change in pace and season.
I know I did not write many life-update posts. so I will give you a quick 1-2-3-4 recap of my summer!
1. I got engaged
This should not be a surprise to you, but I got engaged on May 31st of this summer! We have set our date and booked the venue so far, and it's quite exciting. It's felt slow since we have so much time and do not have to get some stuff planned until later.

2. Summer Classes
Ahh school. I love learning, but I am definitely over school. I want to be done with it as soon as possible, so I'm squishing my bachelors degree into 2.5 years instead of 4. I'm the busy lady that takes extra credits in the fall and spring semestesr, and a bunch of credits in the summer as well. Pays off to work hard!
I also am pretty proud to say that I have made the deans list from the Spring.
3. Summer Camp
I have been missing the days at my old church with the youth and making those connections. This summer I was asked to go with the youth group at my church to Spencer Lake, WI for summer camp! I loved every moment of being an adult leader and being with these kids! Blue team dominated -- Go Blue!
4. Launching "Alysia Paige"
Y'all. This was a monster. I spent so much time investing and researching before I launched this site. I'm so happy with how it turned out! My hope for this blog is to be a resource, a guide book, an inspiration, etc to people. I'm excited for where my vision for "Alysia Paige" is going to go in the future.
Also -- My friend Jacob Morgan designed my logo and it looks super legit. Go follow him on Instagram!
There was a lot of good this summer, and It was truly a growing time for me.
With growing, there comes growing pains which is a completely different blog post by itself, but I was experiencing that a lot this summer. I went through some surprisingly dark times with myself. I wrote a blog post called, "If I'm Honest", and I realize with no backstory that It does sound a little confusing. After wrestling with some depression and complete lack of motivation, I decided to write that post despite what I was feeling and going through inside. Like I said in the post, I didn't want to write. I didn't really want to do anything.
I've been super overwhelmed by the giant mountain of to-do's and it sucked the life out of me. It was a bummer to have went through such a weird period, I felt like I missed out on a lot of joy this summer. With that -- I'm not just saying this to provoke sympathy, but to tell you where I'm going from here. I never liked staying in one place, so I refuse to sit in depression any longer. This fall semester is going to be a blast, and It holds some big things for me and for others, I just know it.
Maybe this optimism is coming from the changing season, but I feel a shift. I'm excited about it.
I forsure have some fun posts that I'm super passionate about that I can't wait to share to you. Fall has got me feeling all sorts of things, and is just the change in pace I need.
Enough about me, I'd love it if you told me about your summer! Give me a highlight or something you are looking forward to this coming season.
