me & the dude i’m accidentally dating are going on an impromptu CT brewery tour of our own making tonight & tomorrow, since i convinced him to play hooky from work, complete with a dicey hotel room stay tonight.
Day 5 of 365: I finally have an idea of where I’m going and I actually feel like I’m headed in the right direction. Six months from now (sheesh does that seem far away) I graduate high school. Five months from now I make my decision and click the accept button on the college of my choice. Four months from now I go to my Senior Prom and see all my classmates in the same place for the second to last time. Three months from now I turn 18. Two months from now I celebrate one last time home for my mom’s birthday. Although my future may seem far away, I feel closer to it than I have ever been and I am proud of myself for getting this far.
I don’t usually do this but I just need to take a second to talk about my achievements so far this year.
It’s been over 6 months since I’ve had a soda.
I have drastically reduced my junk food intake.
I’m currently wearing a pair of jeans that I haven’t been able to fit into since my sophomore year of high school.
I work out 5 days a week.
I’ve almost quintupled my jogging time since I’ve started. (5 mins and now currently at 23 and working up higher)
I’ve gotten piercings.
I’ve gotten a tattoo.
I have a house.
I’m moving out.
I haven’t harmed in almost a year.
I’ve stopped letting people walk all over me.
I shaved the side of my head.
I’m proud of myself. So goddamn proud. This time last year, I wasn’t in the best place. I was miserable. I’m getting a lot better. I’ve come so fucking far in a year, and I’m only going to keep going farther. I’m so proud.
Everything is finally falling into place. I got promoted to hardware department manager at work so I got a raise and full time hours. I’ve finally started online courses so I should be working from home by the end if the year. James and I are getting a car so I’ll be getting my permit next week (if the weather allows me to get to the DMV). Now we just need to decide where to move in the fall when our lease is up. We’re deciding between Nevada, Louisiana, and Mississippi at the moment. Plus we would like to start trying for baby #2 this year.

Knocking things off my “adult” to do list and feeling so much freer. For the first time in months, as insignificant as it may sound, I smiled in all my snapchats. A genuine smile and have said nothing but positive words all day. I am loving this new outlook. I have officially freed myself from the past,
So I definitely think 2014 has been a good year, I was in my first musical, I came out, I got a vape pen, I don’t deal with rude people, I smoked weed (finally), and I just feel so great! And I’m 18 so I have more independence!
