Adventures, Decisions and Life....

Wow, has it really been since January? Life flies...even when you aren't always having fun! Since I've posted, I've been to FL twice, celebrated my 28th birthday, lost a family member, had a visit from my aunt, attended a wedding and been working a ton! makes me tired just thinking about it.

I have fallen in love with FL. The fact that it's warmer all year round, there's no snow and you can actually feel warm when you walk outside is a huge advantage. I've done a lot of thinking about my life and where I want to go and what I want to do. I do really love my job right now, but I remind myself that my job is not my life nor do I want it to be. I'm still single and am not really happy with where I'm living or the area. I haven't found a place where I really feel like it's "home." Now I fully realize that when I'm in FL, I'm on vacation with no work responsibility and it's all about fun. But it's an option. I celebrated my birthday in FL this year and had a blast. I finally ate at Bonefish Grille (which was DELICIOUS), did some shopping, went out, and visited with family. It was a great time.

Life continues to be busy. I feel like I'm working too much but don't know how to accomplish everything in less time than I'm putting in so it gets frustrating. I'm really loving the co-workers I have right now and the families I'm working with so that definitely helps. The kids I'm working with right now (for the most part) have been great and I've really enjoyed getting to know them.

It's baseball season again so I have been going to games and watching as many as I can. I don't know what it is about baseball but I just love it! My dad and I are going to another game on Sunday and I'm so excited. It's quite an experience to be at a game and jsut to take in everything going on around you. I know plenty of people who don't enjoy it but that's definitely not me :)

Other than that, just normal day-to-day things. I've been working out again and I'm loving it. I didn't realize how much I missed it until I started going consistently again. I currently have a sinus infection so unfortunately I haven't been going as much recently, but hope to be back at it soon!!!!

Hope everything's going well with all of you. Sorry for the really really delayed writing!

Sunday, January 03, 2010


Remember when 2010 seemed so far away? I still remember being so excited for 2000 because it was the year I would graduate high school and then start college in the fall. It was this infamous year where nothing was going to work (Y2K), and it was the start of a new millenium. Here we are though...2010. Wow.

I have had the wonderful opportunity to spend quality time with many people over this holiday break. I've also been lucky to have been off work since the 24th. I've done some traveling and spent time with friends. I have to say that I've had some great conversations and gotten on a variety of topics. I rang in the new year with some friends and have spent some time just relaxing and reflecting on the past year. Although I don't feel as though I "accomplished" many things over the last year, I do feel more at peace with many things around me. As I've reflected, I've realized that I have many reasons to be thankful. I have wonderful parents that only want me to be happy (whatever that may bring), friends who support me and allow me to be my silly, sarcastic self, I have a job (and that alone I am thankful for), I have a place to live, and I am overall pretty healthy.

Over the past year, I have made new friends and lost touch with others. It still amazes me how people are sometimes just brought into your life for short periods of time. Others you feel as though they are brought into your life at just the right time and give you exactly what you didn't know you needed. I am not a very religious person and honestly, I'm not really sure what I believe in, but I know that I believe in being a good person and for me, that's good enough. So to start out this year, I am thankful for what I have and for what I can continue to have in my life. I know that I'll continue to strive to do good in my life and to continue to help others in my job. I will continue to travel (already have a trip planned this month!) and continue to be open to finding someone to share all those things with.

What are you thankful for?
