Year 23

 Today is my 23rd birthday.  It's weird.  Like, a lot weird.  It doesn't seem that long ago that I graduated from high school and started college and got into all this crazy stuff.  I need to write more.  In here, in my own time, on whatever it is.  I just need to write.  I'm hoping that I will more once school is done, I'm officially graduated and on the job scene.  I have two jobs for the summer.. possibly a third.  Things are going well.  I'm taking a year off.  And everyone seems okay with that decision.  Which is good. Because I realized that going to get my masters in education was just me settling...and what I really wanted was to get my PhD.  So I'm going to apply for next year and if I get in, that's the route I'm going to take.  If not, I can still go get my Masters in Education and things will still work out.  I just think I should reach for the stars, rather than settle outright.  

I've lost a lot of weight so far.  20 pounds in total now :)    I'm going to be honest.  At one point I was 189 pounds.  I let everything get in the way of me and being happy and I let myself get that big and it was, bad.  I've lost 20 pounds so far.  I'm down to 169, officially today.  My goal for June 8th is 159.  And for July 8th, it's 149.  

My birthday was really good :)  
I have a new workout bench and I got myself Lulu basically last week :)  My sister also got me a gorgeous professional tote bag.  I love it.  I also got a really nice coffee mug/thermos from work.  :)

Lulu is jumping around like a goof with her catnip mouse.  It's adorable.
