It's been awhile.
Life is hard. My optic nerves hemorrhaged again, I'm flat broke, and I have a crazy schedule right now. But ya know what? I'm happy. I'm happy with where my life is headed, and with the people around me. I know that they will support me and be there for me. I don't waste time worrying about people that wouldn't worry about me. In the past, I gravitated towards people who were negative. I was negative, and I wanted those people around me, to convince me that the way I was behaving was okay. I realized that it is too toxic for me. I don't want to feel sorry for myself, or make excuses. I want someone to inspire me with their future, not impress me with their past.
Student teaching is crazy and enlightening.
I feel like I have spent too long being stagnant. For me, 2011 is about living life and getting myself that much closer to the person I want to be. Because I have a feeling that person is pretty awesome.
