Old Dominion University

Standard

Last night was a little bittersweet. I was looking through some old papers and came across my acceptance to ODU.

My plans were locked down, I knew exactly what I was going for, classes were picked…we were still figuring out funding, but other than that, I was set!

Then I ending up quitting my job. I disliked my job SO MUCH, I was having TERRIBLE thoughts. Yes, it’s sad, but it’s also very true. I was miserable. So, there went that idea.

I’d always hoped that one day I would return and earn my bachelor’s degree. Even if that meant I went to a different school. Now, I can’t really see the purpose of returning other than for the fact that I am a huge nerd and loved college! I have my associate’s degree. But now, it doesn’t seem to really matter of you go to college or not and it doesn’t seem to really matter what you even go to school for. Most people I know who have a degree aren’t rooting in the field their degree is meant for.

Who knows what the future holds? It was a reminder of how smart I truly am though. ESPECIALLY after an abusive relationship where I was told I “was nothing without them!”

Actually, I am WAY MORE without them. ‪#‎DirectPunchToTheExsFace‬ ‪#‎KnowYourWorth‬IMG_20150915_063638

The whole waiting until noon because of my antibiotic thing wasn’t making me happy. Most people need coffee ASAP, Kerry needs Shakeology ASAP. Day one of 21 Day Fix is going down & my group is PUMPED! I’m ridiculously excited about using my Hydrate for the first time as well!

It’s a beautiful day people! Thank the Lord, be grateful, & smile!

Every. Single. Year.

I see these beautiful reminders and patriotism that touches my heart and I am full. I know multiple loved ones gave their lives serving their country and stepping up when called upon without hesitation.

Every. Single. Year. I read ignorance. I see people run their mouths about this country that they TAKE FOR GRANTED and think they know everything about the military and what’s truly going on and all their doing is exercising their right of free speech, which is great! BUT only because you’re reminding me of why my loved ones died for you. They died so that you still have the freedom to run your ignorant mouth.

If you have a problem with this amazing country we are beyond blessed to live in-LEAVE. Put something in your mouth besides your foot-preferably something full of superfoods…just sayin’.

GONE, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. NEVER FORGET.11958295_10153052882705667_2347369188371683840_o

World Traveler

Standard

So many people have dreams of traveling this world before their time is done on Earth. I am one of those people! I am determined to make it happen, even if I have to wait until I am seventy years old.

You can laugh at me. You can make fun of me. You can think I am silly or absolutely insane and I will just smile. I have dreams and these are the small steps that lead to leaps and bounds that make those dreams into realities. So it’s begun and I’m about to add some more to it. How exciting will it be when our fund gets too big for this little container and I have to transfer it to a larger one? And then a larger one?
