While the year started off a little unexpected, I have to admit that I am pleasantly surprised at how things are going so far. All those little pieces are falling into place and I am not only happy about it, but I am extremely thankful. Thank you for the broken hearts, renewed hopes, adventures and opportunities!
Not like I didn’t know this already, but sometimes I think we all need to be reminded that great opportunities don’t just drop into your lap and that it requires hard work. With that said, a business opportunity was presented to me and I decided to bite. I already know a lot about the subject and I think it will be a good fit. In order to get off on the right foot, I decided to do a 30 day fast to help me build not only better habits, but also to get my mind and soul right spiritually. While I am not fasting food, I am giving up something that doesn’t help me achieve or contribute to my goals in any way. I am also on a journey to break bad habits that are counter productive to me professionally and personally.
And I got a job! And I have a pt research assistant position. Next thing on the list is for me to move. Wish me luck?
Happy New Year! I seriously can’t believe that 2015 is done already. The older you get the faster time flies. Can it just slow down for a minute???
Anyways, my new year started off well. I graduated and and I recently got a job as a substitute teacher which I should be able to start in January. I was really hoping and praying I would get a sub job because of the flexibility. I also just got back home after taking my dog Ruby to Texas to stay with my aunt for a while. That was an ordeal in itself. Because of all the trouble I had with her kennel size only being able to fit on certain types of planes down to the airlines booking the wrong planes. And then in the process of trying to get that sorted I missed my flight and was on standby half the day. Thankfully, we both made it to Texas!
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope this time of year finds you well. Before I get my life together to go out for dinner with family, I thought I would share a really easy and quick crock pot recipe. Its a hearty black bean and turkey chili that is perfect for winter.
The recipe is simple and fool proof! This will not make too much, but it probably around 4-6 servings.
Lets just say Ruby is ecstatic that I am done for school for the next several months.
I still have a hard time believing that I’ve graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology!! Five years ago, I never thought I would be here. I wasn’t thinking about getting a degree, I was thinking about getting enough civilian education so that I could get promoted in the Army. Funny how things work out. Now, I am looking onward to grad school. I have applied to one, but nothing is promised until I get that letter so we shall see. If I don’t get in, I will most definitely apply to others. To say that I am nervous is an understatement. But I know that there is no point in being stressed because its out of my hands, all I can do is have good thoughts and pray on it.
