Okay, boy has the last five months been a roller coaster. I have gotten some amazing support and advice from all of my spark friends and that has been absolutely priceless!!! Thank you all for that, it means the world to me!!!
So, here is where I'm at!!!
After applying to 100+ jobs in my previously chosen field of architecture and finding NOTHING, I decided to take the plunge and go back to school to do what I always always wanted - teaching special ed. I started an online class last week and another class last night. The third I will be taking this semester starts the week after next. My parents were PISSED at my decision because they are very scared for me to get out of this with lots of debt and no job. In my opinion, two years from now, if I dont do this, I could still be facing too much debt and no job... so IMHO... I might as well!
I got a part time job coaching the swim team which will start mid september and will be going to classes tues and thurs nights. I have gotten a sub certificate and applied to every school district that was hiring. Subs are a dime a dozen too late to figure that out, so now I will work on getting my paraprofessional certificate so hopefully I can work in the field and gain some experience and hopefully fingers crossed get my foot into a district!
This was a really tough decision and I have to say however scary the debt is or the risk is, I feel so much better having a plan and doing SOMETHING to move forward. I am confident that things will work themselves out, even if my parents dont share that same confidence.
Okay, the boy! We had a rough spot where we werent getting along, decided to give it some 'space'... I was under so much stress and just wasnt myself. I was a wreck! Jon was so patient with me. He is so sweet. And we talked and talked and I cried and cried and we were honest with each other and everytime we met during this period, he was SO supportive and had SO much fun, even with all the serious discussions... makes me tear up just thinking about it! There I was trying to break up with him, and there he was with patience, listening, supporting, laughing with me... I was being soooo hard on him and I am more into him now than I ever was. :) we are happy! and he is soooo great in supporting me and we share so many of the same goals and we have so much fun. so that is going great right now!!!
my running has sucked lately. i hurt my hip, took a week off, and it still isn't 100 percent. i have been steady at strentgh training but will need to cut back at the gym cuz it is pricey!!! so jenny and i are gonna do it on our own! well see how that goes.
it is just frustrating, i have been trying to log, and trying to be good about eating, and i just never lose any weight. grrrr. some days i am right on and behave myself, and other days i cant keep myself out of the kitchen. frustrating!!!! i just want to be back in the 150-155 range. i am stuck with this extra 10-15 lbs! Maybe I need to turn back to turbo fire.... hmmm...
Thats it for now folks!!! Thanks for reading, hope you all have an awesome labor day weekend!!!!
