Well, I’ve been absent for a while so let’s catch up.
The crazy chick I wrote about previously has stalked my personal blog for friends and family, harassed my mother on my property, and I had to file two police reports and lay low as my mother was convinced this (for lack of better words) psychopath was going to harm me. So, many of you know who it is. And we all had a nice laugh about it, but it’s around New Years and I’ve done some reflecting about my life. Back to more positive things.
I feel more accomplished than I did in high school.
It’s a lot of work, balancing two jobs and a full time education in a field that’s entirely new to me, but nothing will compare to how amazing I feel after that first semester. All A’s. Getting better and better at my job as a technician and getting better and better as a Team Member.
Still improving my diet, my face now breaks out exclusively when I’m on my period.
As far as my resolutions from last year go, I’ve achieved a lot of them.
I landed the Whole Foods job, I maintained a 4.0, I now have a few vegan recipes to keep me well balanced.
And I drink A LOT OF WATER.
I’ve been very happy. I’ve made a fair amount of new friends from work or school and I found happiness in my life. Since I’ve broken whatever thing I had with Chris off, I’ve been very confident in myself and since my whole “shoprite career” I established that I’m more successful than my other old co-workers… so they can suck it.
There are some things I’d like to work on. I’d like to exercise once a week. Go out for a run or a walk. I’d like to learn more tagalog, more about my mother’s heritage. When I get older, I’d like to pass the lessons I learned from her down to my very white spawn.
I’d like to learn how to Ice Skate. I’d like to volunteer at the hospital this summer.
I’d like to take better care of my skin, perhaps go to the dermatologist. I’d like to spend one hour a day to focus on myself.
Above all, I’d love to work on music. I let that part of me go a little bit, to feed into the identity of a healthcare “professional”. But I miss the rush I get when I perform. Maybe I’ll go and perform in the park, or write music again. Something to keep that part of me alive.
Happy New Years everyone.
