Oh my! I have not posted in 2 whole years! TWO YEARS! My how things have changed! I just took the time to read through everyone of my old posts, and goodness my life has changed! I’m not entirely sure anyone still follows my blog, but for those who do; here is an update. I am now going to college in Oklahoma on both academic and athletic scholarship(WHOOHOO), and I have long since broken up with the boyfriend that I used to write about. I don’t think I ever mentioned my best guy friend in any previous posts, but he has been my absolute best friend for years now. Anywho, we started dating a little over a year ago and now we’re engaged. Yep, you read that right! I am engaged! We haven’t taken any pictures yet, but I suppose I could post a picture of the ring later on. He is two years older than me, and has spent the last two years in the U.S. Air Force, but now he is a freshman in college just like me. I’m majoring in biomedical science and he is majoring in electrical engineering. There, unfortunately, will not be a wedding until after we both obtain our bachelors degree. We discussed it at great lengths and decided our education, for the time being, is much more important.
One of my previous posts continuously sticks out in my mind, the one titled ‘Fact of Life’. I was terrified of growing up then. It was something I desperately wanted to avoid, but now I have realized that really it’s not all that bad. Don’t get me wrong, being a child is great! But growing up most definitely is not the end of the world like I thought it would be. Yes, things don’t always go as planned, but you take it one day, one step at a time and you adapt. Evolve. Adapt. That’s what you have to do to get through life. It just took me a long while to actually realize that.
So now I am living in a dorm room, trying to grow container plants with a incredibly small light source, working to keep alive a long distance engagement, and joyously keeping a 4.0 GPA. Life is great. It has its struggles, but it is a beautiful journey.
