As my birthday approaches it has made me think a lot more about my life. It's scary to think I am entering my mid 20's... When the heck did that happen? I feel like I have accomplished nothing... But I did look back and think 24 might have been my best year yet. I learned a lot about life, love, and things I'm looking for in life.I have always been one that has wanted to travel and see things... For the first time in my life I can actually say that I went places other then Disney. I hadn't been on an air plane since I was 9 and I flew 3 different times this year! I flew to Tampa in May to see Gio, Chicago to run a half marathon I ended up not running, and to Disney to see my mom run what's called the Dopey Challenge. It was a crazy and exciting year! I lost one of my best friends tragically, got through one my of hardest time thus far, and made new friends.
As a little girl I always thought by 25 I would have a great job, a beautiful husband, kids, and a wonderful life.
My reality::: I have a mediocre job that barely supports my bills or my lifestyle. no degree, a pretty beautiful boyfriend, I don't even want kids, and I do have a pretty wonderful life regardless of the money situation.
I just always thought when I was 25 I would have my whole life figured out and it would be great! Things are different then I ever imagined but I'm ok with that.. Not saying i'm not hitting a quarter life crisis and fully regret turning 25.. but if it is anything like year 24 I think I will be ok.
Let's recap year 24 since I was not all that great with keeping up with my blog.
I met a guy in Florida Feb 2014 that I connected with immediately.. I spent a month talking to him over the phone for hours every night. Y'all I was seriously ready to move down there for this guy, I REALLY liked him. I went down to Florida for my Birthday March 2014 to go visit him for not even 24 hours... I was still ready to move.. April 2014 I lost my license due to a DUI (that I got Nov 2013) for 3 months... 3 months of hell. I kept on with my relationship with Florida boy.. Flew to Tampa the last weekend in April realized our short awesome little relationship was over (I will go into detail at a later blog post). The next day I got back and I had red roses waiting for me from someone else (I have never been sent flowers to work before). May I very unexpectedly met a guy through a mutual friend that I very quickly fell for (I know I sound like I love every guy I come into contact with). We hung out for a few months, nothing serious and even more so it didn't go anywhere. I then met my now boyfriend in September.. Things just really took off with us and things are moving pretty serious with us I would say. Along the way I went to a few concerts over the summer, went to the beach in June with Granddaddy and Sarah, ran the Peachtree Road Race in July, September went to Chicago & Music Midtown, October went to Nashville, and the last couple of months went to Disney, and Feb completed my second half marathon, and here I am now... March 2015 going to the beach with Olivia to bring in turning 25.I'd say year 24 wasn't too bad. Stay tuned for what 25 has in store for me... if anyone is even still reading this.
