Moving Forward

Wow… so it has officially been three whole weeks since I last updated my blog. Sad face. 😦

I apologize to my small collection of followers for going MIA for a while. Basically, I went on vacation for a week and then was caught up with other things going on in life, including many doctor appointments for my seemingly unending number of ailments. The important thing is that I’m back now and have a revived sense of motivation to WRITE!

I hope all of you are doing well and enjoying your summers, or whatever season it may be where you live 🙂 I recently came back from a trip to Ocean City, MD with one of my best friends from school and had a blast… many good memories were made there. Despite the redding effects the beachy sun had on me, I truly miss being on a stress-free vacation. Being home is nice and all, but it gets a bit tiring (and dare I say stressful?) being stuck in such a small living space with four other family members…each with their own needs and preferences. Needless to say, it isn’t always smooth sailing.

Speaking of which, I can’t wait to get back to school. I’ve realized that my high school friends and I have grown apart over the past year, and they aren’t all truly there for me anymore. On the other hand, I deeply miss my friends from college. They are wonderful people 🙂 I also miss the independence that college provides me with. Obviously now that I’m eighteen I am legally an independent adult, but that doesn’t carry much weight when you are still living under your parents’ roof, eating the food they provide for you, relying on their transportation to get to you from point A to point B.

To keep my busy mind occupied, I’ve been trying to defeat any boredom that crawls into my day by planning for the future. I’m happy to announce that I’ve made a few steps forward in figuring out where I’m going with my life. If all goes according to plan, I am going to be majoring in Mathematics (based on previous reactions from others, I know half of you probably think I’m crazy for this decision), with either a minor or double major in Philosophy. I’ve got a good balance of numbers and questions going on and I am happy with the way both fields feed my hungry little brain. It simultaneously craves the answers and the unknown.

I also have decided that starting at the beginning of the new semester, I am going to become a pescetarian. So yes, I will still be eating fish meat, but other than that no meat. This may be somewhat of a problem since I learned today that I actually have an iron deficiency, but as long as I take supplements and am smart about my eating habits, I should be fine. As I’m sure many can relate, I did gain some weight my first year of college (no thanks to the countless late nights of Domino’s and Chinese food…), but I’ve decided to turn over a new leaf this year and focus more on my health and nutrition.

I’m very much looking forward to taking action on these plans and hope that I am able to follow through with them. As I am only getting back into writing again, I will be posting soon with actual topics to talk about instead of just random updates 🙂 Until then my friends, stay happy.
