First off, I wanna say: Hi family and Jami!! Thanks for reading my blog. haha. Also, thanks to my 40+ subscribers! Yall are so nice for being interested in my college program. Thanks so much.
Secondly, for the past couple of days I've been struggling with keeping up with my schoolwork from home. I'm taking two classes: College Algebra which starts in a couple of days and Creative Writing: Memoir which I've had for a month. Not only do I not really have the time for the work load required for these classes, but my memoir class is making me incredibly homesick because I have to write about my life outside of Disney in great detail. It makes me miss my family so very much. Its also difficult explaining Austin, my hometown, to guests when they ask where I'm from. Before I came here, I honestly could not wait to get the hell out of dodge. I love my family and friends but I needed a change desperately. Here, I have that change and its amazing the difference it makes in my overall feeling of accomplishment in life. I don't feel as stuck here. I feel like I'm actually moving forward in something, as opposed to just doing the same thing day in and day out. I feel like I'm actually developing a talent, photography, as well as developing my social skills. I'm a pretty outgoing person in general but I think I got so comfortable at home that I stopped progressing and in the end, I wasn't gaining anything. Its really hard being away from home and I want to go visit so terribly, but at the same time, there are days where I feel like I could stay here forever. I'm incredibly torn and I wish they'd just build a Disneyland in Texas already.
My step-sister Kayla is getting married in the first week of April and I got a couple days off from work approved and booked my flight home. Its still two months away but its better than the three months I have left before I move back home.
I wish money weren't an issue and I could just fly home next week to see everyone.
Such is the price you pay for moving away I guess,
Miss you my dearest friends and family <3
