So I have decided to blog. This is going to be my 2013 thing….not a resolution, because if it falls miserably down the tubes, I do not want to feel bad about it. Rather, this is an endeavor to work on documenting my life, however exciting or boring it may be. I’m not an English major, so don’t expect miracles here of always nicely flowing sentences with carefully chosen words. This is me. This is my life. Good or bad. 🙂
My life on Christmas break always seems to go much more quickly than the school semester. Probably because I sleep in and am always on the go. It never fails, though, that I miss out on seeing some people that I miss the most. Being away from home at school has never made me a happy camper, but the funny thing is that over the past semester, it has occurred to me that I want to live in Pittsburgh after I graduate with my master’s of course and get a job.
I have already begun looking for job opportunities down near the city, if not in the city. I never would have imagined 4 years ago that I would even begin to like that area. I mean when I looked at Pitt as a Junior in high school, I feel in love with the urban campus, but my Freshman year was to put it lightly, a bitch. Those who know me best know that year was not a piece of cake for me, but I persevered and am quite happy with the way things turned out after that year. Lord knows that my Senior year was no walk in the park either, but alas, I am still here yearning to be back in that city.
Would it be scary? Hell yes. But would it be worth it? Hell yes. My mom and I have often thrown this projection of my life around lately and she is well pleased with the fact that she would get to see me more often (being that if I lived around there, I would most likely be less than an hour from her). It would be nice, and believe me when I say that I am going to do everything in my power to get back there by 2015, lol.
Do not get me wrong, Curwensville has it’s interesting parts and of course I have family here so that’s a plus, but so many people do not realize that there is so much more past Clearfield County out there. The people that do realize that and still live here are amazing people because they are more open minded. That’s one of the reasons I chose Pitt in the first place, to get a taste of some diversity and another reason why I considered PSU for its multicultural components to the program itself.
I’m jumping the topic because all this Pittsburgh talk is really nice and all, but I’m getting back to the present, here and now (woohoo Groups Counseling!) focus. Today is a boring day. I went to the Chiropractor to be told that I probably messed up some muscles along with taking it out of place. Yippee! Hopefully it heals soon, because I don’t enjoy Zumba when it hurts….
After I got back I spent the afternoon with my dad at the store, we had one customer, who did actually buy something. We sat together while I ate my pasta and bread stick leftovers from last night’s restaurant marathon and just talked. Nothing exciting, but oh well. He left a little bit ago to go show a house so I came upstairs to edit photos…..I’m working on it.
I can’t believe that this break is almost over. I can’t believe that just a month ago I was digging into final papers and thinking about upcoming finals. Life flies. It goes so quickly, and it stops for no one. I hope this semester is a good one. I hope that my anxieties are greater than they need to be. With all this being said, I can’t wait to help people. Words cannot describe how happy I am with the program that I chose. They say that you should enjoy your work, then it really isn’t work at all, and so far even though some assignments got me down, I thoroughly enjoyed what I was doing. On one hand I picked school counseling out of the sky and on the other I knew I wanted to help people. I can’t wait to help students, I can’t wait to be that person that students go to with problems. I wouldn’t have it any other way, I love where I am right now.
