Final Comments:
After 6 years of no’s, disappointments and tears I finally will be moving out of my parents’ house on Sept 1 of this year. My inability to pay off my credit cards and student loans did a huge number on my credit, which of course caused me to not be able to move out. In addition to credit issues, I also couldn’t find another person I trusted enough to move in with and now I have. One of my best friends Megan and I will be living in an adorably 70s 2 bedroom, 2 full bath apartment about 10 minutes away from my job. When the apartment manager called me yesterday evening with the good news, I wept. I’ve worked SO hard to get my credit in a better place, to get rid of all of my credit card debt and to get started on my student loan debt as well. It took blood, sweat and tears, but I did it. Proud doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel, but I am so thankful to God for the opportunity to live out my dreams. I drove by the street I’m going to be living on and screamed in my car. HA!

God is good SparkBuddies, He is SO good.

I’m sorry I haven’t been on much lately, I just don’t have my heart in weight loss right now and although I miss my SparkBuddies, I can’t put as much time into the site like I used to. Know that I think of all of you very often and am glad to know I still have your love/support. With the move, school (going to take math classes), writing a webseries and my duties at my theatre company, I won’t have a lot of time for Spark, but will do the best I can to come on and blog.

Have a fantastic weekend friends! I love you all.

    A Fresh Start...very exciting.
    I think all your positive energy is going to get a lot of good things rolling your way.
    Good things come to those who work their asses off and never give up.
    You deserve the best

    Look at all of the progress you've been making! Credit card debt getting under control -- check. Student loans payments -- check! New apartment -- check! Trust issues moving forward -- check! Standing Ovations -- check! Weight moving downward -- check!

    You should be so proud.

    Kudos to all your well-deserved (I'm sure!) accolades both on the stage AND off as you are navigating many, many changes which can pose great challenges.

    Viva la SPARK! :-)

    Congratulations on dealing with credit card debt. Good luck with the student loans. Repayment is a tough process----I've been there for undergrad----but it can be done.

    Maybe next time you do post here you can do a video blog of yourself singing!
