High School Hum Drum

Five years ago today, I graduated from high school.


Seems crazy to me! I wish I had a picture from actual graduation—all I can find is this funny one of my church group in our respective high school cap and gowns.


Class of 2005!



Recognize these ladies? Probably because we are STILL friends!



Same girls, five years later! Love it.


Lately, I’ve been pretty hard on myself. I feel semi-failure-ish because:

1. I’m in tons of school debt and the bills keep rollin’ in

2. Having trouble finding a career

3. Taking exxxxtra long to graduate from college


However, I was inspired today after reading Allie’s post about the path less traveled.. I thought about everything that I have accomplished in the past five years. Looking at this picture brought back memories of my senior year of high school. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life, practically knew nothing about real life, and had a very small perspective on the world.


I’ve managed to figure out at least a general idea of what I want to do with the rest of my life, graduate with two degrees in 5.5 years, and pay for most of my own way through college. I’ve learned to be responsible, to be healthy, to love, and to think for myself.


Sometimes it takes something small to put things into perspective!


Back to the Hum Drum of Today…


Things have been pretty plain jane around here lately. I feel like I’m just going through the motions of work and school.


I spiced up my otherwise dull morning with a 1250m swim in the pool before work. I’ve been getting into a habit of going to the gym before work which I really like!


After my swim, I swung by Starbucks for Perfect Oatmeal with all the toppings. A bit of sweetness for my morning!




I’m off to tidy up my apartment… guess who’s coming to visit for Memorial Day weekend?!



BFF DEBBIE!! I can’t wait.
