A Fresh New Week

I’m so glad it’s a fresh new week. I realized after much consideration the hospitality field was NOT for me, so I resigned. My job search continues on. ADHD makes it very hard for me to hold down a job, but due to another mental illness that I face I currently can’t get any ADHD meds, since it will make my other condition worse. So i’m hanging in there & trying to manage my ADHD unmedicated still. I have been trying to find better ways to budget my money & the best way to decorate our walls. I’m so over these plain white walls y’all. I’m at the very end of this online Math class & let me tell y’all I could’nt be happier that it is ALMOST OVER. Even happier about the fact that I will be passing it!(Woo Hoo)!
It feels so good to have our own space for a little over a month now. I love waking up next to him & ending my day next to him, no matter what transpired throughout the day.
It’s so crazy to have our own place & i’m grateful for the internet esp. for school purposes.
I love living life with J by my side….& I love fresh starts to a sucky week before even better!

KEEP THE FAITH Y’all!

Life Has Been Quite Busy Lately Y’all.

Hi World!
Taking time out of my busy life to update y’all! I can’t believe it has been a whole 90 Days since we closed the distance. 3 whole months since I have been in Texas. The adjustment to the weather & people here has been major. They are WAY different than the people from back home, not as friendly by a long shot y’all. We have been in our new apartment for less than a month still & it feels amazing being on our own & tryig to figure out the best way to budget finances together. Things are slowly coming along with purchasing things to make it feel more like home instead of that we -just-moved-in yesterday feeling. I have been working alot at a hotel not too far from our home, & lets just say making the switch from healthcare to hospitality has been a MAJOR ADJUSTMENT.

School has definitely been keeping me busy though because due to my schedule at work, i’ve been falling quite behind. Slowly catching up though & thanking God the class has only 2 more weeks.

J & I have been pretty good, coping ok since the loss of his dad. I have even decided to take up an interest in some thing he loves: X-Box One. I must admit it’s pretty fun playing video games ( just don’t tell J I said that 😂)when your SO is more skilled ( & by skilled i mean like a professional gamer compared to me)in it than you…& you are like such an beginner it’s not even funny.

What are some hobbies that you & your SO both enjoy?

Gains & Losses.

We officially have moved into our OWN APARTMENT & honestly we could’nt be happier. I’m even more excited to ditch my library card…for wi-fi at our home in a couple of days FINALLY. I’m loving our new city as it is the same city we went on our 1st date, the first city we spent quality time with each other in after meeting face-to-face. Bossier City dare I say it….feels a bit like my home away from home. Everything is right here with-in 5 miles or less by car for the most part. I even have a interview lined-up. It feels like such a huge breath of air being here finally after all we have gone through in order to get here…together as a team.
As all these major changes happened…we were also hit with some heartbreaking news today: the loss of J’s dad. We are both at a loss but are definitely helping each other cope. All I can ask is to keep us in your prayers.

Keep the faith.💙

Welcome To July & Good Things!

Hello World!
Today marks 2 months since we closed the distance & life has been crazy busy. I can say it has gotten a bit more normal than at first doing our day-day routine. I finally got my liscense switched and I got a part-time job, which i’m hoping I can better manage with my school schedule.
I’m also excited that we FINALLY got approved for our apartment & am looking forward to our big move on our own in the next couple of weeks.
Overall, each day is a new adventure and gets more like “home” the longer im here. So excited for our big move into our own place, lord knows it is some thing we have both wanted for awhile.

Keep the faith,

Happy 2 year Anniversary to Us!❤💕

2 years ago today we began our journey being separated by 253 miles & no one around us believing it would actually work but US. We have faced ups & downs together, beating the odds one step at a time. Closing the distance finally on May 6, 2017. Just when I think I can’t fall more in love with you, I do. You have become my best friend and the person I love on good days & bad. I’m so proud that through whatever life has thrown at us, we have ALWAYS proved the rest of them wrong, amazing them with our strength, faith and love between eachother. I look forward to so many years together with you by my side. I love you to the moon & back my love. We have come so very far in 2 years & waking up to you today is a gift, I don’t take for granted. It’s amazing how one person can come into your life & change it for the better. Happy 2 year anniversary to us. We have gotten stronger and I’m so glad to call him mine. He is a blessing in disguise and I thank god for the day we crossed paths. I could not have imagined 2 years ago we would be here: living the closed distance life together. I love him more than the year before. We have each others hearts.

One Month & A Day.

Hello Y’all! I can’t believe it’s been one month & a day since we closed the distance. Life definitely has a way of getting real after the distance is’nt a factor. It is still an adjustment period-full of ups & downs and lots of changes. I’m still so happy to be here & can’t believe we have been a “normal couple” for a whole month.

I have been transitioning to life away from Texas. Trying to find work out here & get settled in. I finally got my address changed for the first time ever, which is exciting & new all at the same time.

I’m in the process of getting my healthcare license switched to Louisianna so that I can get some income circulating. My job search has’nt been too successful so I’m resorting to that option.

All in all closed distance life is AMAZING😍😍😍😍…& i’m even more excited that we will be celebrating our 2 year anniversary on the 12th…permanently together.

2 Weeks Since We Closed The Distance!

Today marks 2 weeks since we closed the distance & I left Texas in my rearview.😊 It’s so funny how we imagine life to be after closing the distance vs. the reality of how closing the distance actually looks. I have had my moments where I have missed home.🙁 I come from a suburbian town in Texas, while where J resides is more country living lifestyle and slowed down, so adjusting is a understatement. We have had some petty arguments, which comes with the territory of merging lives. It is’nt just like a normal visit like all the other times before, but an actual life change. It’s a huge adjustment on both out parts being under the same roof. I was homesick alot almost the whole 2 weeks, feeling very out of my element,but here recently I have been handling the change a bit better…getting settled into my new normal.
We went out today & actually purchased a wall calendar….& that is what makes the fact that i’m now not just visting, but actually starting a life without the distance with this person.🤗 We are both learning eachother & how we operate as individuals & meeting in the middle.
It’s still an adjustment period…but I would rather adjust to living life closed distance, than living life without him in my life.
I’m happy we have closed the distance 2 weeks ago & at the end of it all no matter what, i’m learning the greatest thing in life to hold on to is definitely eachother.😍💑

Since we are no longer LDR, I’m looking forward to changing the blog up soon.
