the past few months…

it’s been quite some time since i’ve last posted. i’ve been so busy that i honestly haven’t thought about the blog in a few months (and that makes me kinda sad).

school, concerts, family, friends…here’s to catching up on the last few months of my hectic, chaotic life.

i have experienced so many emotions over the past 3 months, it’s almost hard to believe. stressed, happiness, anger, anxiety, fear, worry, excitement, intimidation, determination, amazement, discouragement, disbelief, pride…honestly, this list could go on for days. i can almost guarantee i’ve experienced it over the past 3 months.

fortunately, i successfully completed my first semester of PTA school (although there were a few moments were i didn’t think that would be the case). i recently started second semester & hopefully, with a lot of prayer and probably a bunch of tears, this time next year, i will be sitting for board exams on the way to starting a rewarding new career.

of course, making it through the program is a little easier when you enjoy who you work with on a daily basis. i’m blessed to be a part of an amazing group of people who share the same passion as i do. i’ve gained a new group of friends who truly understand what the past few months have been like and i know for a fact, if it wasn’t for them and my family, i would have never made it this far.

even though i’ve been working my butt off at school (& at work when i’m not at school :/), i’ve managed to have some fun over the past few months as well.

i saw bruno mars in concert…and let me just say, it was AMAZING! i was expecting a great show but the concert far exceeded what i was expecting. i would definitely recommend seeing him in concert (and i wouldn’t mind seeing him again either).

during my two weeks off between semesters, i took a little road trip to new orleans to see JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE! again…AMAZING performance, AMAZING concert. i would easily go and see him again. maybe when he comes back to the states at the end of the year…tennessee, georgia?! happy early birthday to me!! (i can now mark #10 off of my list of 26 before 26!)

(the pictures below do not do the concert or JT justice…but i put them on here so you can experience some of what i experienced – i have some videos that are pretty amazing too, but i can’t post them for some reason :/)

new orleans was a new city, new experience for me. architecture was beautiful, food was great. but it wasn’t my most favorite city that i’ve been to. maybe i just need to experience it again. (i can now mark #2 off my list of 26 before 26 as well!)

i’ve been blessed over the past few months. i’m working towards a career i’m very passionate about, i’ve made an amazing new group of friends who share that same passion, i’ve seen two of my favorite performers in person, i’ve spent priceless moments with my family, my goddaughter was born. i know that things will only get better from here and i’m ready to see what this journey has in store.

in a previous post (prior to admission to the PTA program), i made a list of 26 things i want to do before i turn 26 in december. i have been able to mark some things off of that list but there are some things i’m sure i won’t be able to do since my commitments have changed since writing that list. there are still a couple that i know i can do and i’m working on them daily. i’m working on having more fun, relaxing more than stressing and enjoying the moments that i’m experiencing along this crazy journey. i don’t want to get lost along the way and i’m trying to make sure that doesn’t happen!

hopefully, the next post won’t be months from now, but since second semester just started, there’s no guarantee on that!

 

until next time…
