Obviously I'm a little rusty on the html front. Oh well.
So I guess you're probably wondering, 'Misty, what the hell is up with that quote anyway?' Well my friends, it's because we're about to embark on a most delightful journey. WE'RE IN THE NEW ROARING TWENTIES, Y'ALL!!!
I've been waiting for a new decade for a few years now. I know I keep saying that everything's been this giant dumpster fire, but really, it's been more of a controlled dumpster fire. As in, most of things that I've been complaining about have been under my control. I'd take one step forward and then immediately fall on my ass. Some days I felt like I didn't really have a lot of drive and/or will power, but then other days I would feel like I'm going to accomplish all of my life goals in one weekend. I was all over the damn place.
Basically, this weird purgatory of self-loathing, pity, and determination to do better is where I've been for the past 12 months. It's been SUPER FUN, y'all.
Buuuuuut, I've also been able to take some pretty big steps on the self-improvement front! I've somehow managed to look my depression and anxiety square in its face and say 'go eff yourself, because we're done here.' I started therapy back in September, and believe me when I say, it's life-changing. My therapist is awesome, and she has already given me countless tools for me to work on everything. Even if you're merely considering going, GO. Just try it to see if you like it. Sometimes all you need is a different and new ear to listen and talk with you. In May, I OFFICIALLY graduated with my Associates of Arts from Lone Star. Aaaaand in the middle of December, I submitted my transcripts to the University of Houston-Downtown to see if everything would transfer and if I would be able to transfer period. It looks like I'm good to go, and I plan on applying right after the first of the year for the summer semester. I'm also changing my major from English to Technical Communications. I think that this will be a better fit for me, and it also will greatly increase my opportunities for job hunting once I graduate. I'm super excited about going back to school, which is something I never thought I'd say.
I remember when I turned 30 I kept saying that I was ready for a new decade. And, that's still the plan. The Roaring Twenties just sweetens the deal. It's also a new decade, but it's a new decade for everyone!!
Y'all stay safe for New Year's and let's make it the best decade ever!!
