Howdy Stranger!

It's pretty sad when you have to happen upon your own blog by accident. It's been TOO long. I had stopped posting initially because life got hectic, I wasn't the happiest person and in turn I didn't want to write a blog that strictly reflected my pessimism, and eventually, I just got overwhelmed and forgetful.

SO much has altered in my life in the past few months. I had the opportunity to take a little trip up to Toronto, Canada in July. My father suffered from a nasty motorcycle accident, injuring himself in several places. I did not get rehired at my school ( which is the least upsetting thing to happen), I gave up my apartment to move back in with my family to help myself financially, and to support my family as my father makes his recovery. 

It's been difficult to understand why things happen, and all at once. I suffered moments of bitterness, frustration and anger. At times I'm still confused and how everything is supposed to come together. However, throughout all of this I've also had the opportunity to meet new people in my life and have been struggling to recenter myself and align my priorities in a way that is conducive to a positive, motivating and forward thinking way of life.  I made a goal previously to strive to look for the positive in all things, and as of late it's certainly becoming an easier thing to do.

Those who know me well know that I'm not one to frivolously dabble in romance outside the friendly chick flick. I've been a skeptic for a large portion of my adult life. I now feel like a sheepish hypocrite for making fun and criticizing those twitterpated couples, because I have now apparently crossed over to the dark side. I've met an individual that makes me feel 145% better about myself than anyone else ever has. He inspires me to improve myself on a daily basis, and does nothing but build me up. I have no idea where life is leading me at the moment, but with better goals and a sunnier disposition than I once had, I  am happily going along for the ride.

Here's to hoping for more frequent, positive, and relevant posts!
