Pushing Through…

Hey World!

I have been busy focusing on finishing up the term and getting my AA degree FINALLY. Thinking of my next move. I’m so ready for a mental & physical break it’s unreal y’all.
Been still looking for work and thinking about every thing under the sun. Anxiety is a bit high these days.

This month is flying by it seems. Fall seems to be right around the corner. J and I are doing really good. Monday starts my last 2 weeks & I can’t wait to get through these last 2 weeks. Somebody pray for me…pray I make it to the other side of actually obtaining this degree. Feels like i’m coming up on the longest 2 weeks ever.

Is anyone gearing up to head back to school this month?

A Trip To The ER Again…

So here recently I had to take a trip to the ER again for my blood sugar. According to the doctors it’s uncontrolled. My insulin is’nt working like it should to bring it down to a normal level like it was before. When I wake up in the A.M. my numbers are 248 and above. (Fun Fact: Normal levels are 135 & under.)

It got too high and I had to get insulin to bring it down. Luckily I did’nt have to stay over night. I have been tightening up on my diet and excersize, but it’s still not normalized. 😕 So thanks to my trip to the ER, I have found a new doctor and will be seeing him at the end of the month.

Things with J and I have been great. Can’t believe its been a whole year that he and I have had our apartment. Such a huge blessing!

School has been super exhuasting lately. I’m so glad i’m almost to the halfway point y’all. I can’t wait for next month to get here, so I can FINALLY be done with this degree & take a MUCH NEEDED break.
It’s been a long 2 full years (with a week break here & there)of being in school. 2 years of no summer vacations. 2 years of straight scarifices. 2 years of such hard work and perseverance.
I will be so ecstatic to get my AA degree. It’s taken forever, but i’m almost done. Almost to the finish line y’all.

What goals are you in the process of accomplishing?

4th of July & other ramblings.

Hey y’all!

Life has been busy. We spent 4th of July at a festvial followed by some fireworks. We had BBQ also. It was a nice night out for a change. I FINISHED abnormal psychology with an A, i’m extremely proud of that. I’m currently taking my last class of my AA degree and it seems to be dragging y’all. Like how slow can 8 weeks go?

This weather has been gloomy and rainy lately, all in all life is okay. Been taking care of my mental and physical health alot better lately.

How are y’all?
How is life treating you?

Life Hits You Hard.

Hey Y’all!

Can’t believe it’s finally summer even though it has felt like it for quite some time here in Louisianna. Recently I experienced a death of someone close to me, & I have been going theough the grieving process, which has been a bit rough.
Overall I just feel a numbness like never before to this person’s death.
I have yet to cry. I just keep pushing along day by day regaining my emotional strength from the shock of it all.

In other news I’m almost done with my AA degree…& I promise I could’nt be more happier. I have one more class to complete than I am DONE. I more than likely will pass my current class, so i’m ahead of the target in viewing my other class Week 1 assignments.

Just so ready to get to that finish line. J is one of my biggest supporters on this journey.

3 Years Together!🎉🎉🎉🎊🎊

It’s crazy how today marks 3 years since we became a couple. It’s been a bit of a emotional day. We had a petty disagreement, but worked it out. We went out to eat to celebrate at AppleBee’s and had our favorite dessert. It was nice to celebrate something and out of the 3 years, i’m learning a bit more as time goes on, but the most important one is picking your battles & if it’s not that important to let it go & move on with it.
It’s a hard pill for me to swallow learning how to pick my battles, but it must be done. Our evening has been alot better than the earlier part of the day, just grateful that we are still in this together, no matter what.

Love You…From A Distance.

Sometimes family can mean well, but in the end they can also hurt you more than be of help. Things take time. Relationships take time. I called my aunt the other day & let’s just say she sprinkled in the talk of marriage and how im selling myself short being here with J and we are’nt married.
I’m not one to rush things, I learned the hard way that things take time to flourish. I dont want to go and get married just to shut my family up or for it to be a rushed occassion. I want to get married when the time is right…for both us.
My feelings were a bit hurt by my aunt’s comment though. I know she only wants the best for me, but I wish sometimes my family would just keep their opinions to themselves when it comes to me & my life.
As we all are not perfect & make mistakes within out lives. I wish people could just be happy for me and the place I am at right now in my life.
Some times no amount of physical distance is far enough to love a family member from.

Mid-May Thoughts.

So happy to report that my family came down the 1st weekend in May & we had a blast. We went out to eat & spent a bunch of quality time together, creating new memories along the way. I hated to see them leave though. Also I have officially been in Louisiana for a year and some weeks now. Crazy how much has changed within a year. We went from living with his family to finally getting out apartment last July and being together on our own.
It’s crazy to imagine we closed the distance over a year ago and here we are nearing 3 years together next month.
I’m super excited about our upcoming anniversary & I can’t believe a simple “hello” online has turned into all of this for us.

I have been making myself more of a priority getting my health overall in better shape lately & trying to hang in there with school seeing how I have one more class left & that AA degree will be mine y’all.
