I know. I know. I said I’d post more often/regularly in my last post back in April, and it’s been three months since then. What can I say? I’m a busy busy girl. You would think that after going on an indefinite hiatus on GaiaOnline (aka the site that consumed the majority of my free time before the decision), I’d have more time to do other things. What sorts of other things? I honestly couldn’t tell you. I just know that I’ve been busy busy busy!
Ever since April, I’ve been going through countless countdowns. The first one was counting down to when I’d fly out to see my boyfriend in California mid-May, then the second one was for when he’d fly out here to Colorado to visit me at the beginning of June. Then again, for my trip out to California the first weekend of July. The real countdown is now taking place, my days here in Colorado are coming to a fast end. I’ll be in Massachusetts at the latest on August 15th. How I’m getting there? I’m not entirely sure at the moment, it’s still an open debate between whether or not I want to drive the 1.9k miles cross-country, or just to ship my car out there and fly out. There’s too many factors to consider at the moment.
School starts on September 1st, and I just can’t wait. I’m already eyeballing those office supplies, scheming about the things I’d need and would use to help me be successful in my classes. I know it’s an overachiever’s way of thinking, but I can’t help it. It’s been far too long since I’ve sat in a classroom to get formal education. I miss it a lot.
It’s amazing how time flies by so fast. As of last Friday (July 1st), I have been living on my own (away from parents), bearing all financial responsibilities and everything for two full years. It really doesn’t seem that long ago, but facts are facts. I feel that I’ve become more real to myself in the past couple of years. I’m not feigning to be someone else to meet expectations and standards set by others. I live to my own accord now. And I must say I’m a much happier person because of it.
In the past two years, I’ve graduated college with a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Biochemistry and minors in Chemistry and Philosophy. Personally out of the three areas, philosophy is the one that has stuck the most. I got promoted from team member at the restaurant to a shift manager. I got another job in more of my area of focus (aka the pharmacy). I bought a car (2010 Toyota Corolla S model), paid off a car (mwahahaha, It’s ALL mine now). I got myself into pharmacy school, and will be working towards a PharmD degree this fall. I found myself falling for a guy who makes my life seem so much brighter and better, and his amazingness has only given me strength to deal with all the crap that I have to deal with on a daily basis. He is my pillar of support, despite all the difficulties that we had gone through beforehand. I realized that because of him, I have been able to get more out of life, and see the true beauty of it all.
In the end, I guess I can say that I’m just writing this post to report that I am well and content. Hopefully things will continue to stay that way, because as of right now everything is perfect. Hopefully the next time you hear from me won’t be too long.
