Its been nearly 9 months since my mom passed away. When it happened I had only one hope- to live a better life that she would be proud of. Early this year I figured out how to do that. Since I was little only 2 things ever interested me- art and sports. I have since decided that a life of deadlines, fancy office chairs and a room full of critics was not the life for me. And I decided to pursue a career in sports- more specifically Physical Therapy and Exercise Physiology. I have been running every few days and gearing up for my first real semester back at school. Since my mom passed I have lost about 20 pounds. I will be leaving my job in 3 weeks. A job that has given me opportunities I dreamed about. But a life in retail no longer seems to be a life I would ever be satisfied in. I am “throwing away” the sure thing and taking the biggest gamble of my life. I’m terrified but thrilled. I have also started a new blog called Common Sense Fitness. Its both comedy/fitness. I’m excited for what the future may hold. My only wish is that my mom could be here to experience it with me.
Last Monday my mom passed away. I still can’t believe she’s gone. This has been such a hard time in my life. I can only hope that I grow from here and better myself and my life. Right now though it just seems so impossible.
I’ve got some sick stuff in the works! Psyched!!
I got promoted to stock manager today. I’m super psyched.
I love my life.
So 2010 started off pretty miserable with losing my best friend/dog, but I’m still really optimistic about this year. By this weekend I’ll be debt free. By the end of the year I will *likely* have bought myself a car. By late April I’ll be living on my own again with my amazing boyfriend. In a few months I should have a shirt out for sale. Before the end of the year I will have visited at least 3 new places. And by the end of this year I think my band will be immensely successful. I cannot wait.
I finally chose between Tumblr and Wordpress after tinkering with both for a while. I’m sure Wordpress is great but in the future I’m gonna be posting my art through here and using this as my portfolio/blog and I just feel like this is the better option. Not to mention the sweet iPhone app. We’ll see how long I keep up with this.
