Vision Board for 2019!

2018 is done and I for one am ready for the good times in 2019!

So much so that I created a few things to share with ya’ll 🙂

First up is my super awesome vision board! This was so much fun to do that I’m thinking of making it a new tradition for NYE. This chick has many, many, MANY goals for next year, so this was a little challenging to narrow down to just a few to share.

How did I do it? Well, with the help of Canva and Unsplash of course 🙂


Okay! Now let’s discuss.

First up are the academics. I soooooo need to complete my BA in 2019.

Not just so I can stay in South Korea longer if I want to, but having that done will no longer be looming over my head. Yes, it will cost me a grip to finish but surprisingly, once I have it, ya girl is looking at MAJOR career possibilities now that I’m overseas.

And speaking of being overseas, I want to travel more. With my contract, it may be a little difficult, but I can at least get to know my city and those within a 3 hour bus ride radius, right?

All future travels are for sure solo!

After more failed attempts to meet folks in Seoul, I am just done with group meetups.

I think about the money I’ve spent trying to make those trips happen and …



Yeah. Something like that.

So, no more working on multiple folks time slots, available dates, and interests.



In between my future travel plans, taking online classes, and working my pretty awesome job, I want to take the KIIP (Korean Immigration and Integration Placement) exam. You know, just in case I finish my BA by next February and want to see what other amazing careers await me in South Korea.

That and the fact that I really, really, REALLY want to improve my listening and speaking in Korean skills. Right now I have plans to register for the exam on January 2nd for the beginning of April. There are 5 levels and I would like to place in level 3.

You all will for sure hear more about that journey on my YouTube channel.

Which brings me to my next goal – growing my channel! I honestly did not think it would be possible, but over the last few weeks I’ve been gaining a healthy number of subscribers and want to keep the momentum going all through out the next year.


I also plan on bringing back the ‘Soprano’ in Soprano Musings.  Sigh.

I miss singing ya’ll. So much so that with my hectic schedule, I plan to make time to practice my old voice lessons and sharing the re-glowup journey with you all.

Yeah, I know it is a lot. But I also know that I’m worth it.


So let the celebration begin!

I have created a NYE Playlist for you Musings on my channel. Check it out by clicking here and while you are there, be sure to subscribe!

Until next year Musings!

Be inspired. Stay inspiring.

Ready for the Good Times!

Yes I am listening to Shakira’s ‘Ready for the Good Times’ as I write this entry!

It’s time. I am done with the pity parties, ‘woe is me’, and being so hard on myself that I don’t want to get out of bed. That’s not who I want to be.

Yeah, I still have fresh insecurities, but I am no longer going to let them decide my life. The past week I’ve been in the practice rooms on campus going over my Vaccai and really practicing the piano. Nothing too crazy – just my scales in major, minor, augmented, and diminished.

I still haven’t picked up one of my guitars, but that is next on my list. This week I have found so many great and positive reinforcements thanks to the web! All these groups for baby bloggers such as myself, blogger vets with words of wisdom, and new social medias (somebody say periscope! lol) to explore…It’s almost too much and at the same time it is just what I needed!

I hope that that makes sense to ya’ll.

Have you ever spent so much time over analyzing all the things that you did wrong or didn’t like that you lost sight of what you do know and got right? I feel like with each reminder of the things that I know and got right that I’m finally able to shed the old parts of me that were weighing me down to make room for the new and improved me.

I could get addicted to this feeling!

So I am back to carrying around my SM labeled journal, writing down new plans and ideas. Jotting down short stories, original songs, concepts for future photo shoots, and new quotes or positive words of inspiration to keep me on this awesome path.

School starts back the third week of August and I want to prepare for my classes as best as I can. No more worrying about what I don’t have or don’t know. It is high time that I just let all those bad vibes go.

And get ready for the good times to come.
