I know I’ve been away — but I put updating on hold in favor of focusing on my applications, and it’s hard to get back in the swing of things. Some pretty awesome things have happened, though!
First off, all my applications have been turned in. BOOM. More than a week before the deadline, even! I’m really nervous and anxious, but there’s nothing I can do about that anymore. In an attempt to appease my anxiety, I am accepting all good thoughts, prayers, crossed fingers, and wishes on stars. Also, I am taking donations for graduate school tuition. Just throwing it out there, ’cause I’m poor.
I also attended maybe the best Christmas Party ever last Saturday, which included wearing pajamas, drinking hot apple cider, and playing awesome games. It was seriously one of the best, most enjoyable parties which I have ever attended. I love my friends.
This past month (well, month and a half) has had its challenges, too. My foot hurts every time I dance or wear heels or walk, and I haven’t been sleeping well. Regardless, I’m trying to focus on the positive.
I have a lot of ideas for the new year. First, I feel the focus of this blog is a little split, and since one of my majors was Creative Writing, this has been frustrating; as such, I’ll be writing one blog for my personal life, and one for my dance life. Second, I’m going to be picking back up my challenges and, as long as my foot is not permanently hurt, I’m going to get back into running (I miss it so much!).
I have a few major goals for next year (I know it’s not New Year’s yet, but I’m trying to be on top of it this year!). I want to get out from under some of my credit card debt before Grad School. I want to run a 5k. I want to be awesome. But most importantly, I want to move out of Atlanta. For serious. I love Atlanta, but the next part of my life requires moving. And I am really, really ready to start the next phase of my life, no matter how intimidating that next phase might actually be.
Well, hopefully the next post will have more purpose and direction and such. For now, I’m going to go to bed, where I will hopefully dream about the awesomeness that will be Lindy Focus.
