WHOA. I haven’t updated this in awhile but for good reason. The semester I was ragging on in my last post finally ended and I headed to Costa Rica. I didn’t make it very long in CR because of poor management within the company I was interning with (seriously people, keep your personal life separate from your professional) and my mom passed away (in my previous post, I mentioned that she was sick dealing with chemo), I spent the rest of my summer grieving the loss of my mother and dealing with a psycho and abusive boyfriend that thankfully is out of my life now. School started back up and I got in an accident and I’ve been without a car ever since. I just want to go home and hang with my family. Maybe sometime soon..
The good news about 2016 is: I’m graduating in December (FINALLY) and I got an internship to work at Disney World – again! But other than that… I’m ready for you, 2017.
Also… not having a car isn’t that bad. I’ve had a lot of time to process life and I’ve learned how to be better prepared – I walk everywhere, I plan ahead for meals, etc. And I’ve learned how to rely on people (can’t get to class without my good friend, Halle – shout out, you da best).
I miss you, momma. So unbelievably much.
I’m walking in less than a month in a 3-day 60 mile walk with Komen to raise awareness for breast cancer. I haven’t trained nearly as much as I should have but this weekend I’ll be spending each day hiking at Purgatory Creek (a park with a lot of trails in San Marcos) that’s luckily a 5 minute walk from my apartment. The 3-day walk is the first weekend in November in Dallas and it’s going to be a really emotional weekend but I’m looking forward to walking in her memory with one of her friends (who is a breast cancer survivor). I had to raise at least $2300 to participate and I was completely funded by the end of July (only a month after my mom passed away and 3 weeks after I decided to participate).
I’m starting to get sick, and I just finished the Hulu original show ‘Difficult People’. Really funny show and now I’m left finding something new to watch. If you’re reading this, give me suggestions.
I went to a TEFL seminar on campus today – TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. I’ve wanted to go abroad and teach English for maybe two years now and I learned a lot about the program today and it really lit me up, I hope to be able to apply and start that journey in a year or so.
Well, that’s all for now. I need to get back to blogging again, so if there’s anyone who reads this update, I will and thanks for reading! xo
