Whoops….

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.

Sorry. My Bad.

Eep. I goofed. I said I’d update more often but I somewhat got sidetracked with life and all that other good stuff. I suppose I should give a few updates and what not on what’s happening and all.

First and foremost, I’m moving to Massachusetts come this August for pharmacy school. I”ll be attending Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. I submitted my deposit, got my apartment application and everything in and settled. I’ll be there for at least the next 3 years. Anything beyond that will be up to fate. We’ll see where life takes me.

Recently I’ve realized that there a few things that I don’t have the heart to leave behind as I continue on to the next chapter of my life. The first thing that I always knew I’d miss is the Rocky Mountains. I don’t like climbing them, hiking them, skiing on them, or any sort of things that actually has to do with being on them. But I throughly enjoy looking at them as the sun sets every evening. The view is just breathtaking. I know that when I was in New York (upstate, not NYC) back from 2006 to 2007 for my freshman year of college, I missed the mountains most. I didn’t really miss anything else then.

This time when I leave Colorado it’s different, my friendships are on a deeper level now compared to back then. I must say that I’m going to miss my best friend and the mountains when I leave this state that I was born and raised in. Who am I going to be finding good eats with? Or drag along to go browse the stores at the mall, or just pointlessly wandering town? Who am I going to just sit down and have a heart to heart talk with? My best friend is like my big sister (granted she’s only 7 months older than me). Thinking about not having her around after every phone call is rather depressing. I know that we’ll be able to talk and skype and all that wonderful stuff when I’m in Massachusetts. But it’s really not all the same when we’re not in person anymore.

But my move is for the better. I’m moving on and beginning to live life for myself without any sort of restraints. My life is mine and mine alone, and I’m able to choose what I want to do without the influence of others. I don’t care what anyone else thinks really. As long as I’m content, I feel that everything that I do is well worth it. I’m a smart person, I have the common sense. I know what the rights and wrongs. My decisions will reflect my values and moral standards, not anyone else’s.

I know that my parents would frown upon my decisions I’ve made thus far, and the decisions that I will make in the future. But we live in two different worlds now. I’m no longer under their roof or under their wings. My decisions ultimately are for me to make as how I see fit in attaining my happiness. Not theirs.

Call me selfish. But I’m tired of doing things for others right now. I’m content with living for myself for once.
