I don't know exactly what the point of this post is, but I just wanted to share with you guys how happy I am with life right now and how thankful I am for everything!
I'm completely stressed out most of the time, I don't have time for anything besides work and school, I'm buried in homework and don't have time to sleep enough, work out enough, or do very many 'social' things....but I'm ok with all of that because I feel like I'm working hard on my goals, and that it'll be worth it. I'm thankful just to be here studying!
I have NO money whatsoever; I'm truly poor for the first time in my entire life. But I don't care, because my basic bills are being met, and I'm thankful for that! Plus, I'm getting used to not having money and I think I'm learning to appreciate things I never did before! It's a good lesson for me, and I think that's important.
I think moving in with Robert was the BEST
decision I have made in a long time!!!! I didn't know him all that well when I first moved in, so it was a little bit of a gamble, but he's a totally awesome person. His determination, ambition, and work ethic impress me to no end, and I'm glad to be around such a good influence!
Plus, in the time I've lived here I've finally stopped half-assing it and become completely vegan, which is another of the best decisions I've ever made. I have a lot of guilt about not doing it sooner, but I am glad that now I can have a clean conscience!
, through Rob, I've been introduced to everyone on this board, and this is something totally new to me. I've never seen such a warm community, it doesn't even feel like it's just online, I feel like I really know everyone of you and I know I can count on you!!!!
Of course, I can't forget to mention Topher! He's just as impressive as Rob - I love that he just follows his dreams no matter what, and that gives me more inspiration to keep chasing mine. Plus, I've finally met someone that can keep up with my wild spontaneous streak! He's down for anything anytime, and I love that because it's just like me! (Even though I'm a little bit inhibited by work and school, but I've still got the attitude
) When we first found out Rob's Portland competition was cancelled and I said let's roadtrip it to California, Topher was the first one to jump on the idea! I love his enthusiasm for everything! He's one more person in my life I'm truly thankful to know
Him and Rob have become my best friends!
I think that's enough rambling, you probably all get the idea.
But really, does anyone else feel this way? Despite in some ways being in the toughest situation I've ever been in, I am just bursting with happiness and gratitude for the things I do have
I love it!
