I’m happy with the way life has been going the past few weeks. I hope I’m not speaking too soon but I haven’t been stressed lately. I hope it stays this way for a while, but if it doesn’t, at least I can say I cherished every second of it.
So I just got home from my first day of cosmetology school. It’s almost exactly how I pictured it. I don’t think I’ll be making any lifetime friends between the twelve girls I’ll be spending the next ten months with, but they all seem nice enough for now.
I was never really much of a studier, hell, I even have trouble keeping focus while talking to someone at times. But I feel like for once in my life, I’m going to be able to give something my all.
They have a strict no cell phone in the class room policy so that’s definitely going to help in paying attention seven hours a day, five days a week. If I’m paying thousands of dollars and giving up my college route for a while, the least I can do is pay attention for the next few months. So here’s to the beginning!
My parents are in town for the weekend to visit me. Today was such a wonderful day because of that. They took me to lunch, out shopping, and to the movies. We went to Friday’s and had a great meal. They bought me lots of new clothes, earrings, shoes, undies, and a bunch of other stuff. We saw The Town which was AWESOME! Seriously go see that movie right now if you haven’t already. Now I’m waiting for my babes to get home from work. Life is goooood.
It’s only been a little over a year since high school ended but so much has already changed. Just about everyone I knew back then ended up leading a completely different life than I did.
I went to University, it wasn’t for me, so I left. I tried Community College, it felt the same, so I fled that scene too. I picked up and moved to a whole new city to start cosmetology school, I start next week.
While most of my friends are out partying and hooking up with different people every weekend; I stay inside getting stoned with the love of my life, laughing and making love. I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way. People my age are still trying to find themselves, they say they don’t care what people think about their lifestyle but they’re the same people who are on social networking sites every second of the day, trying to convince the people from their past that their happiness is real.
I’m moving in with Nick in six weeks. I never thought I’d be one of the first people I knew to settle down but it’s the only thing I think about these days. I’m not saying I’m more mature or even more in love than anyone else. I’m just saying that I’d rather have someone to come home to at night than a bottle of Jack Daniels in my hand.
All I know is that I’m happy and I’ll never regret the decisions I made in the years that mattered most.
Yesterday was our three months. People say the “honey moon” period ends around this time but our relationship just gets better and better as time goes by. The more we learn and grow together, the stronger our relationship gets. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you Nicholas Crume. You make me the happiest I’ve been in years.
