Ahhh it’s been so. so. long. I know, what kind of blogger am I? How could I ever in life take this long of a break from my passion? Well, let me try to explain before you lovely people bite my head off. :)
The past…. long while has been quite the rollercoaster. In approximately 2 ish years I have gone through what has seemingly been hell and back. In my post, “Breaking the Cycle,” I mentioned that there were some bad habits that I needed to get rid of and that I would no longer practice certain behaviors. That went well, for a spell, anyway. Unfortunately, tried and true, I began exhibiting some of these behaviors and habits again- struggling with depression/anxiety, money management when I really didn’t have any, time management as a full-time student AND a full-time employee, a horrible relationship, and the death of my great-grandma. All of these things kept being thrown at me, from all different directions! Needless to say, looking back, it’s almost no surprise that I ended up not receiving financial aid because of issues with college credits, thus having to move home Summer 2014.
That was probably the hardest decision that I have ever had to make- a) stay in D.C. struggling, trying to get back into school or b) move home with Daddy-nem and have a fresh start. I’m SO GLAD I MOVED BACK HOME. At first, of course, I felt dejected, beaten down, hopeless even. Now, a year and a half later I fee wiser, STRONGER, lifted up. I said in that last post that I was “…officially ridding myself of bad habits that continuously plague me in order to move into the next phase of my life, adulthood.” Finally, I can say that I’m absolutely that, an adult.
Now I’m working towards earning my degree by transferring to a cheaper state school closer to home, I’m near my supportive ass family, my time/money management is better than ever (disclaimer: BETTER not totally awesome, bill Gates level, lol!), and I have the most loving, supportive, grown man, beard having sexy boyfriend ever. (Us getting together…? That’s a story for another time ;)
All of this to say, I am honestly and truly #blessed. I must say that the #glowup is real, and I cannot wait to see what this beautiful year ahead has to offer! Well wishes per usual! Xoxoxo
