Does the person create the journey or does the journey create the person? Either way you perceive it, I'm definitely on a journey for a happier and healthier me. After a couple of months idle on SparkPeople, I've decided to rededicate myself to ME, and to getting healthier one day at a time.

I'm 23 years old, and a senior at Texas Tech University. This semester, however, I am doing my student teaching in Houston, Texas. I have an incredible and adorable boyfriend, and we've been together for three and a half years now.

As for me, I ALWAYS wear sunscreen, and I kick ass at Cash Cab.

Interests: crosswords, pin-up, proper grammar and syntax, planning my life with Steven, missing my "A" friends, Diet Cokes with lime, owls, vintage things, classic film, independent music and film, cardigan sweaters, winged eyeliner, going to shows, learning to teach, failed attempts at being creative, creating lesson plans that my students might actually like, youtube make-up tutorials

Music (currently): Too many to really name, but as of lately...

Joy Division, The Sounds, Say Anything, Cursive, The Flaming Lips, Battles, Cold War Kids, And the Devil Makes Three, Trail of Dead, The Smiths, The Swell Season

Movies (currently): Again, way too many to name, but lately...

Up, Wall-E, Annie Hall, Food Inc, Whatever Works, Fantastic Mr.Fox , A Single Man, Moon, Choke, King of Kong, Shutter Island

Books (currently): I teach English, was an English major...thus, this would/could be impossibly long as well.

The Lovely Bones, Reading Lolita in Tehran, Tender is the Night, The Mother Tongue, Wicked, Blood Meridian, Adventures of an Incurable Optimist, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Manhattan Transfer

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. I was having a bad morning at work today and all the the love and support everyone is showing me on my blog has lifted my spirits! Running that half marathon was the most empowering thing I have ever done. It was worth every minute of training and everyone of the 462.5 miles I ran training for it! Stay tuned to my blog as I plan to run my next half sometime this fall

    Thanks for still being apart of ~curvey creations~ emoticon

    I know the board has been a little quiet but myself and the other leaders are trying to bring the board alive again. So please keep checking in with us. We can unleash our curves together in a healthy yet fun way. I'm so looking forward to all of our scales dropping,maintaining,and creating friendships all over again. If you have any suggestions PLEASE email me or the other leaders and we'll try to include the request on the boards.

    Have a great one!
