I said a couple articles ago that 2018 was going to be the year of the Bad Bitch. The Queen. The I’m-not-taking-shit-from-anyone Fierce Female.
SO TELL ME WHY WE ARE ONLY A FEW WEEKS INTO 2018, AND THE EVIL SPIRITS ARE ALREADY TESTING ME.
I was not prepared for the storm that was going to wash over me so early in 2018.
I really wasn’t.
I am being tested in my professional life, in my personal life, in my financial life (which is nearly nonexistent because I have next to no money, just like every other college kid on the planet) and everywhere in between.
People from my past are trying to creep back into my life, toxic people that I swore I was done with.
People in my present WHO I KNOW are no good for me are trying to inject themselves into my day-to-day existence.
And this semester is shaping up to be a hard one academically, one of the hardest so far. I wasn’t ready for that either.
I don’t know what I expected from 2018. Probably more dank memes, even more advancements in feminism and people celebrating successful women, and all-around good vibes for everyone.
What I DIDN’T expect was for the Internet to go too far with the Tide Pod craze, Trump to actually call other countries “shitholes”, or Logan Paul to be about as sensitive as a blunt axe.
And I definitely didn’t expect the evil presence that is lurking in my 2018 so far to come up behind me and snatch my wig.
But it’s okay. Really.
Now that I’ve gotten a little taste of the demons that have been waiting for me in 2018, I know that I need to regroup. I came into this year a little overconfident, and now that I’ve seen that 2018 isn’t going to be a walk in the park just because I spoke it into existence, I am going to adjust my approach.
And for anyone else that has been knocked down a couple pegs by the new year, it’ll be okay.
We are still going to be Queens and Bad Bitches, but we have to also be prepared to overcome unexpected challenges that might be waiting around the corner to try to steal our crowns.
Damned if I’m going to be caught off-guard again.
