This is going to be a long one... so bare with me. I have so much to tell you.
It seems I have neglected my blog for far, far too long. I have had so many changes this year to deal with - that I have found it quite difficult to keep up wit many different things in my life. Although, I truly would like to get back into blogging. It's a crazy-good release of thoughts and allows me to organize them in a better manner; as I am sure it does for those of you who do the same.
So first things first -- I've moved to my Grandmothers house.
Things are pretty damn good here. Though not always amaze-balls, its a home. I needed that. I'm out of foster care, as I'm sure I've said before. Living with my parents was definitely not something that was healthy for me. Both are re-married, and both also have very bad/poor household situations, in which I could not live a healthy and fulfilling life. Thank goodness I realized that as soon as I did and got out of that situation... WELL back to my Grandmothers house.
It's kinda a zoo here most of the time. I have my 3 older cousins living here as well, (all over the age of 30) and none of which are married or have children with us. Things can get hectic with them -as they tend to be alcoholics and fight with one another often. At least they HAD been - things have been pretty damn good lately in that aspect.
As far as school goes, I am in my 3rd semester of college, working on a foundations of health degree, as well as becoming a LPN in a year and a half more. (so long as I keep my good grades going). The CNA thing sounded great, and probably still is - but I think that furthering my education while I'm young and able is my best bet. It'll be nice as well, working toward a better licensing that'll give me a few grand more a year and doesn't take up too much time.
I have NEVER maintained a 4.0, or have even set foot near deans list... until now. I could not be happier with the way my college life is going.
My classes are wonderful - very insightful. Sometimes pretty scary to begin with - but what isn't? Its the fear of the unknown. Once I got past that, it was smooth sailing there on out. I find that I'm less of a procrastinator now that I feel that school is a top priority in my life - and something that will eventually pave the way to a rewarding career.
Other than that, my relationship is still a flaming ball of amazingness. I could not love this man more. 2 years in about a month.. my god time flies. It feels like we have been dating forever. I truly hope this is the man im going to marry. I could not possibly see myself with anyone else...
In other news: This summer has just been wonderful. It's been filled with all sorts of new experiences, and things that I am so happy to have tried that I never thought I would.
I went kayaking, have been spending a LOT of time outdoors (hiking), six-flagging, and going out to see concerts and ball games. Its just been a grand ole' time.
My dad came to live with my Grandmother and I for a little bit.. Got kicked out of my step-moms house due to lies, taking a TON of pain pills, and being irresponsible about work. That was short-lived though, because he began stealing things from everyone in the house.. including my Grandmothers credit card, and checks so that he could get money for the coke, heroin, and opiates that he had been doing which I had no former knowledge of.
Makes me sick.
He moved back in with her - got a job.. did well for a bit. I was pretty hopeful that maybe he would change. Nope. Same shit, different day. He's getting kicked out again as of September 1st. Surprise!! -- Not.
Other than that loveliness --- I have been ADDICTED to a few things lately. All legal, and all very safe.
I have a deep seeded love for "breaking bad", "the walking dead", and netflix.
I cannot get enough of my playstation.. Its a fabulous device.
I am also overly addicted to facebook. I should really get a grip on it.. though its my main source of communication with family that are not close to me, as well as a place where I catch up on the news (actual news. not peoples' drama), as well as where I get a little bit of gaming on with my friends.
Music -- can't stop listening to the new linkin park album. REALLY wish I was going to the upcoming Incubus/Linkin Park concert with the boyfriend... but ah well.
I went to see the WCCC's big Gig with Godsmack, Staind, and many other awesome bands a few months back. Freaking awesome night..
The boy and I have been looking into planning trips lately! I can't wait. The first we'd like to do, is go see Niagara falls together. I'm positive its going to be an incredible experience.
We have decided that rather than waste money on gifts for christmas that we don't necessarily need -- we'd save the money to go toward planning these get-aways. I'm pleased with this.
I'm pretty happy that I decided to come back on here and spill the beans so-to-speak. It feels good to get all of this information off my chest.
Hope you all are enjoying your summer! Hope to catch up with everyone soon. I'm looking forward to making more entries (hopefully.. you know how forgetful /busy I can be. We all get there).
Time to watch my show and get some shuddeye! Its been a very long weekend. I went out with my guy yesterday to a Red Sox game at Fenway park and didn't get home until 1 - and proceeded to cook for him and pass out. Didn't get to bed until around 2:30... yuck. The day was so humid and hot.... I definitely was ready to just hit the sheets.
Today we got up early to start a new day of adventure together. Have I ever told you guys how wonderful I feel when I wake up with his arms wrapped around me, or with his head on my chest? My lord. Best thing ever. I never want moments like that to end..
Anyway - we got off our lazy bums and proceeded to head off to the New England air show. Always a good time there. It was his first experience with it - and we are definitely making this a yearly recurring thing. Its awesome. Though next time -- I MUST UTILIZE THE SUNSCREEN!!!
Time to watch my show :-)
