Badass Updates!

Ok, so it's been forever since I last posted, but better late than never, right? :) I guess this post will just be a bunch of updates ...

School is "almost" over. Well, this one class anyway. I'm currently procrastinating writing a paper for Comp 2 ... I decided blogging was a better waste of my time! Ha. Anyway, this class is going very well, up until this paper anyway. Time flies when you're having fun! ACC is so much better than UT, I must admit. It's much more relatable, seeing as I grew up in the small town of Schulenburg, TX! My professor actually cares, knows who I am, and realizes when I'm not there, which just blows my mind! It's a room of about 20 students instead of a freakin lecture hall of 200. Much more my style :). But starting the middle of next week, my next class starts...Intro to Literature. Sounds fun, right? Hmm...

On a more upbeat subject (who wants to hear about stupid summer classes anyway?!), I'm pumped about moving in about a month!! I can't wait to get out of this neighborhood and into an apartment that I absolutely fell in love with! Only two downfalls: 1 - packing up my entire life, once again. 2 - painting this apartment back to the boring dull colors that it was. Not looking forward to either of those, but it is what it is! I just can't stress enough how ready I am!!! And I actually planned it better this time around: I have people to help me this time! Other than my immediate family, my cousins, Lisa and Nathan, have offered to help, so they're coming, along with the new man in my life, Colten Jay! He's already requested off that day from work! I know, how sweet, right? You have no idea...

Since I'm on the subject of Colten, might as well be the next topic! :). I am lucky enough to be with the most amazing man on the planet! And I'm not kidding. His name is Colten and he's from Yorktown. We've been together for about a week and a half, but things are moving quickly (don't worry... ;) ). I've never felt this way about someone before, and I know he truly cares about me. He's the guy that I've always dreamed of being with, but now my dreams have become reality! He calls me in the mornings to make sure I'm awake and make it to class safely, he texts me randomly throughout the day just to tell me he's thinking about me and that he loves me, he always knows when something is bothering me or when I'm upset, and he does everything in his power to make me happy! I know, I'm getting all mushy, but hey, I think I deserve it! :). I've truly never been this happy with someone, and now ... it's my turn! I love going to see him and spending time with him. It doesn't matter what we're doing, we always have fun together! I've never missed someone so much before ... but it's totally worth it the second we get to see each other again! I can't wait for him to move to Austin. It's going to be a wild ride, and I'm ready for it!

I guess that's really all as of right now. Everything else is pretty much the same. I still have an amazingly badass family, and my friends are awesome. So...that's it in a nutshell! Ok, not a nutshell...a computer monitor? Wow...anyway! Until next time!!

Days Like This...

Days like today make me so thankful for everything that I have! There's no particular reason for this happening, but as I was sitting here trying to find something to do, I started listening to some music on You Tube. Two particular songs got me thinking: Hilary Duff's "Someone's Watching Over Me" and Group 1 Crew's "Forgive Me". They are both very amazing songs, and no matter what mood I'm in, they always make me take a deep breath and think about the things I've done and been through.

I'm very content and happy with who I am. I live my life for myself and do the things that make me happy. I've been through my share of hardships and failure in my life, but it's only made me stronger, and it helps me to appreciate the things that I do have!

It's been happening for a while now, but my faith in God has been growing stronger and stronger! I feel a very close connection with Him and hope it only continues to get stronger and healthier. If it weren't for Him, I wouldn't be here today. Whatever comes my way, I know I can handle it. He never makes me face something I can't handle.

I'm also very proud of myself for sticking up for my morals and not giving in to the things I knew weren't right for me. There comes a time in a person's life where you know you just have to stick up for yourself and make your own dreams come true, which is what I'm trying to do! I've never been a big "party" fan or wanted to live the stereotypical "college life". I don't need that to fulfill me or to make me happy. So many people have tried to tell me otherwise, but I know them to be wrong. I have no regrets!

I'm also extremely excited to finally be feeling like myself again! I have many people in my life who are always there for me to turn to if I need them for any reason, and for them, I am truly thankful! I finally feel truly happy with the way things are going. Whatever happens, happens...but I'm ready for the ride of my life!!

**On a side note, today's quote is AWESOME!
"I would rather MAKE my name than inherit it..."
Just thought I'd throw that out there :).**
