Hello, beautiful souls. I know that I always say that I will do better. I haven’t, but there are plenty of excuses and reasons I can use. I won’t do that though. Instead, I will catch you up on my life.
Alright. So apparently, January was my last published post. I’ll start from there. January, I was overseas. Why, you may ask? Well, we may talk about it later on when we know each other better. At that time, I was getting ready to come back to the States. With that, let’s jump to February.
I made it back to America on Valentine’s Day. I was pretty happy to be back, but there were some goings on that needed to be hashed out. Either way, being overseas helped me to dive into my personal growth, appreciate myself, and come back to my “normal” life with a new perspective and dedication. In that time, I got a new apartment, got sick, and finished out my first semester back in school. It was awesome (except the sick part. I missed a concert because of it.)
The next big moment was in May. It was my first trip back to my home state of Arkansas since returning to the States. I decided to drive. From my current city of Las Vegas, it took me 21 hours and 40 minutes to get there. I chose to drive because the plane ride back to America consisted of children crying nonstop from Germany to Phoenix, Arizona. On top of that, I was tired of running to gates, sitting for hours, and being limited to maybe four toilets. Driving there was one of the best choices I made. It was amazing to travel alongside Route 66 and seeing 5 states for their true beauty.
When I got back to Vegas, I tested for a promotion. I don’t know if I have it yet, but it was nerve wracking. I made it through in one piece. That’s all that mattered was that I had the courage to actually take the test. Then in June, I drove to Arkansas again to surprise my mom for her birthday. It was a COMPLETE success.
Which leads us to here and now. This toasty July, I am sharing my talents with others, getting ready for another semester of school, and trying to avoid my birthday. Now before you start, I am pretty young. I don’t dread my birthday at all. My only thing is that I don’t really want anything this year. The year has been great already. I’m not even sure if I want to go out to eat, but my best friend is making it nonnegotiable.
Now we are (vaguely) all caught up. My birthday is around the corner, my family has seen my smiley face, and I am at peace at the moment. I will no longer make promises to do better because I am doing my best for me. If you like it, great. If not, maybe this isn’t the blog for you.
Until next time, beautiful souls.
