Tumblr….it’s been decades. Sorry for neglecting you!
SO much has changed since my last post. I just feel like venting & sharing it! The summer was HELL. I fell into a pretty deep depression; and tried to cover it up by working 2 jobs! Once balancing 2 jobs got easier, I took a deep breath & began to recover & pull myself out of that dark place. In order to do that, I had to change and sacrifice a lot of things. I transferred from ECU to better take care of myself. I had some health issues come up within the last year; & though I love my Pirate Nation….the environment was not conducive to me getting better. Physically, Mentally, & Emotionally…I was drained. When you make big changes in your life; you realize who is loyal & really meant to be in your life forever. Once I weeded a couple people out of my life…I was better able to focus on ME.
This semester I’m at my new school. Although it’s not ECU, I’m absolutely in LOVE with my new University. As for my career…I’m alllllllll set to apply into the Nursing Program in January! This is a make or break semester for me, so I have no room to screw around. Time Management is of the ESSENCE…but thanks to Pledging LTA in the Spring, I have that down packed, haha! My days & weeks are all planned out now. I’m busier than ever, but my life is much more organized and functional. Class, library, sleep, and work 2 jobs. That’s all I do now! In my spare time, I blow off the stresses of Nursing School in the gym, or talking to my sisters. I even gots a new boo ;)
I feel like I have been given a second opportunity to LIVE. I have been offered a full time position (Of course I can’t take it, but hey!) & have a new SCHOLARSHIP coming my way in January! I have doctors in the area contacting me for internships & shadowing….Life is BUSY & Crazy, but I love every bit of my new life. I’m truly blessed; & I have God to thank for it all.
Today, I look back on the woman I was in January…& I’m proud and happy to say I’m much more mature, stronger, and EMPOWERED than she ever was! Through all the BS I’ve been through, I learned my WORTH; Whereas my dreams were once on the backburner for other things, I now have my career & my goals on the front line of everything I do. I WILL BE A NURSE; so look out for me! I am beautiful, unstoppable, and truly…the Universal Woman. For the first time in a long time, I’m comfortable in my own skin, and happy with who I am and where I’m going. I hope you guys are feeling just as blessed as I am! <3
