anyhow... here's the gist. i'm saving up to move out... again. i have a wonderful boyfriend who thinks i'm beautiful even when i don't. his name is sam and i love him dearly. i have 2 cats, 3 if you count my parents cat who used to be my cat but forgot who i was when i went away to college. expect pictures. i love all things girly.. nail polish, makeup, hair stuff, shopping.. expect pictures. i have 3 jobs this summer, 2 nannying jobs and part time at lane bryant. in the fall i will start my second year of teaching preschool. i loooove my job at school. (nannying is getting old. or at least i don't love it this week, but i am PMSing.) i am honest. i don't know another way to be. possibly a default as i suck at lying.
i love chronicling my life, be it here, other blogs, or videos. i make youtube videos. i love youtube and i'm probably addicted. i am in the process of losing a large amount of weight and i make a youtube video about it every week. expect videos. i've lost 54.8lbs to date. i may blog about that too... it's a very mental process for me. much more mental than i expected. diet, of course. exercise, sure. but wow, i am my own worst enemy some days. i love to look back and see where from and how far i've come.
i have a large team of medical professionals helping me be my best and find myself, as cheesy as that sounds. i see a mental health specialist (i guess she's my therapist but she's got a social working degree rather than a psychology degree so i don't know what to call her), chiropractors, and an acupuncturist. i was severely depressed for many years and now medication free after at least 10 years on several different antidepressants at once. i did it! i love life and can say i am truly happy most of the time.
but there is still a lot of work to be done... and i am looking forward to living every minute of it.
here's my latest manicure:
