Week 1: Best week of the year?

Here is the start of my 52 week commitment! I plan to write 1 blog a week for 52 weeks! I’d love to hear suggestions in the comments on things I can write about, but I decided to start it off positive. I just may be having the best week of my year.

Why, you ask?

Well, I got my grades for this semester (Not only did I get a 100 on my final for English, I’m ending the semester with 3 A’s and 1 B)! This is such a great thing, because for a few years, I had really given up on school and trying to succeed in school. I stopped being scared of failing and put my all into this semester. I officially have my Associate of the Arts degree and will be continuing to my Bachelor’s degree starting in the spring! Next great thing? Well, I don’t want to jinx it, but the owner of the condo P and I are looking at renting LOVES us! It’s looking very good that we will be moving into the condo January 1st. We’ll find out officially sometime next week. I can’t help but feel good that, though I’ve only talked to him on the phone, he thinks P and I will be perfect tenants. I can’t help but get excited over this prospect and really hope it works out for us! So far, this week has been pretty darn fantastic, and with the way I feel the rest of the year has been, it’s nice to have such positive things happening lately. I’m also done with school for a whole month! I’m actually a little antsy thinking about all the time I’m going to have on my hands now that I’m only working for 4 week, and not going to school…I guess I’ll catch up on TV or read a book.

I’m taking 9 days off in 2 weeks! I haven’t had that much time off since 2005! I’m taking this time off to go on a family vacation, something I haven’t done since 2007! We’re going up to North Carolina to play in the snow! Haven’t seen snow since I was 10, so this trip is very exciting to me.

So maybe, just maybe, December will end up being the best month of the year, which will hopefully lead to 2012 being a better year! What do you think? Do you have a best month, or week, of the year?

About me

I told myself when I started this blog that I would not force myself to write. I would need to feel it and once I felt the urge, I would write what I felt. Not that I think anyone besides my friend A reads this thing, but in case anyone does, that is why I do not write often. I am not a very interesting person, and do not do many interesting things in my life, so I probably will not update on a very regular basis.

I’m not even sure that I’m feeling inspired about anything in particular today, but I feel like writing.

I think today I’ll write a few facts about myself, in case I have more than 1 reader out there

1. My nail polish is ALWAYS chipped.

Without fail, you will always see me with chipped nail polish. For some reason, my nails have a complete aversion to being completely painted. I will paint my nails, and without fail, same day, they will chip. I’m not sure why, but it can be pretty annoying. I always look incomplete.

2. I’m obsessed with cupcakes(well…sweets in general)

Seriously. It’s become a huge problem. I bought a 12 pack of mini cupcakes last Wednesday during my lunch hour(2pm-3pm), they were all gone by 6pm. I did not share. I love cupcakes and love baking. I once even considered going to school to bake. I’ve asked my bosses to cut my lunch to 30 minutes because I get into too much trouble having an hour to go to one of the many cupcake shops around my work.

3. My current job has made me realize what I want my major to be

After close to 4 years in school(I took some time off here and there and wasted a lot of time and money my first few years), I have finally decided on a major and will FINALLY be getting my AA in the fall. I currently work in customer service for a retail company, and working on this end of the job has made me realize that I want to work on the other side. I am now a Marketing major and will be applying to the Marketing program in the Spring. I am hoping to also minor in either Spanish or Advertising. I haven’t decided…

4. I am a child of divorce

And I couldn’t be happier. I’ve never once wished my parents had stayed together, nor have I ever known them together. I feel very blessed to have an amazing step dad as well as an amazing biological dad. I don’t think that people are meant to be together just because they have a child, and I certainly don’t believe it’s always better to stay together for the kids. My parents were 2 people who had a child who didn’t belong together. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

5. I’m not an outdoor person

I’m sorry, but given the choice of hiking or catching up on my DVR, I’m going to choose my DVR 9 times out of 10. I like the beach every so often, though due to my fair skin, I am unable to go to the beach for more than a few hours at a time, and like to go in my pool, but again, usually only outside for about an hour. My idea of “roughing it” is being without cable for a few hours or camping in a pop up camper that has air conditioner and a comfy bed.

So that’s me. I’m sure everything I’ve written here the 1 person who reads my blog already knows, but just in case you stumble across this and you don’t know me, welcome. I’m Sarah-too-boring-for-a-blog.

Too Boring for a Blog

I’ve always thought I was too boring to write a blog. That my words would hold no interest for anyone reading. Today, after many friends have suggested I try it, I have finally conceded. I, Sarah-Too-Boring-For-A-Blog, will now write a blog. So this is my life. These are my feelings. These are my thoughts. I’m a very non-confrontational person, so this may sometimes be where I vent about things I refuse to tackle head on in my real life. But this is The Story of Sarah.
