Life Update

I’ve neglected my blog for so long. I’ve been debating coming back for the past month or so. As you can see, I decided to post.

Anyway, you’re probably wondering why I stopped or most importantly, why I’m back. My last post was back in May. I went through a lot of changes. So last summer…I was quite stressed. Well, I’ve been stressed for MONTHS. I think I’m finally crawling out of the funk I’ve been in. I FINALLY graduated from community college and transferred to Radford University. I also leased an apartment with my boyfriend of 2 years. I know, big move. Along with leasing my apartment, I then needed to furnish my apartment. I also had to find a job to afford said apartment. Driving 3 hours for interviews was stressful, but I did it. I quit the job I had had for the past 5 years. That was scary. I also had to make the 3-hour drive to set up utilities and pay the down payment on the apartment.

Move in day finally came. My mother helped me load up the moving truck I rented and my father drove it down the next day. They helped me bring everything into the apartment, but they had to leave right after. My family and I are really close, so I missed them immediately. Coming home after a really bad day and not having my mom to talk to every day was a hard adjustment.

I didn’t realize being a graphic design major would take up ALL of my time, but I’m glad it’s something I actually enjoy. Finals were last week, and I feel like I can finally breathe. I finally found a new job that I don’t hate, my apartment is furnished, and I can navigate around campus without getting lost.

Oh, I also dyed my hair purple because I’ve been wanting to for years and my new job allows it. I also hadn’t shopped for myself in a really long time. Retail therapy is real. My Ulta package to myself just came in today, and I feel pretty good!

That pretty much sums up my last 6 months. I’ll keep you guys posted.
