off the chest.

So it's been quite a while, dear blog.
LPN school has kept me crazy busy but i surely love it and will continue to keep me busy for the next 6 months until graduation, and i study for and pass the NCLEX! yays.

Just felt like i needed to get some things off my chest.
Life is great. I've decided that after graduation i'm moving to Austin! I'm very much excited about this new adventure, and life, and exciting things that will be going on.
Louisiana is great, don't get me wrong, but i feel like it's something that i need to do. I don't want to look back on life and have any regrets. SO go big or go home!

But on the other hand ... lately i've been having some frustration issues with my close friends. They're either married and pregnant, or following God's call to a religious or consecrated vocation. I feel very alone at times, and not included. I feel like they all have these great plans set out and know what they want to do. And i just get upset and aggrevated, and i feel that i get left out, and no one really wants to spend time with me.. I feel at times, that everyone else is just too busy for me.

but that's just my frustrations as of late. Oh well, life goes on and i'll manage. I'm just slightly nervous about making new friends in Austin, good like my best friends here. I'll just have to find a place i belong, which i think i found. Thank you, for hopefully that place for me to belong :)

I'm aching for adventure and new fun, can't wait to rock this shit!

happy weekend.
keep it real, blogsphere.

i think everyone has those times where they feel alone and out of the loop...even those who appear to have things together! the important thing to know is that you are exactly where you need to be right now, whether it feels like it or not.

love you dear!

I just wanted you to know that as cliche' or annoying, that it may be to hear this at times.. you're not alone, even when it feels like it. At a retreat I worked a while back someone said "Often times we believe that entering into our primary vocation (i.e. marriage, etc) that that will prevent us from feeling alone.. and that's a lie. So know that you're not alone, in the midst of feeling as though you may be.

And I would totally come visit you if I weren't across the ocean from you right now.

I agree with Jen, where you are right now is where you're supposed to be.

Love you my sister,
