moving through july

Jul 25, 2012

I never thought that when I was younger I would turn out to be the person that I am today. When I look back as a teenager, I rarely got along with my parents, I was the pickiest eater ever, I could not even cook "just-add-water" pancakes. I had awkward moments where I never wore girly clothes because it just wasn't me and I never really knew what "taste" I had. All of my best friends were guys I had grown up with in school and a few girlfriends here and there. I never saw myself being in graduate school and actually enjoying it. I wanted to live in New Jersey for the rest of my life and spend all of my money on clothes and all of my time on the internet. I never watched the news and could care less about politics.

I am a vegetarian who can bake like it's no tomorrow, cook without recipes or with recipes and they come out awesome (for the most part). I get along with my parents and talk to them more often than I ever thought I would. I have my own dog that I have to take care of, which makes my responsibilities even more. I love going to class, taking notes, learning, and listening to the insight of an elder who is in the field I would like to be in. I want to move out of New Jersey as fast as possible and move to California, more than anyone realizes. Most of my best friends are still the guys from high school and new girlfriends that I love. I spend every morning and evening watching the news and caring about what is going on in the world. I spend my money on hobbies I enjoy or home-goods type of items. I love to wear high heels, skirts, dresses, and anything that makes me look pretty; still not a fan of make-up and probably never will be.

I always thought I don't want to grow up and I want to stay in this moment and be young and free.. come to find out I am still young and free, but can not wait to grow up more. I can not wait to have my own house to decorate and call my own or live with someone who will one day be my husband. I can't wait to look back on my Project Life album with my children and show them how awesome I was haha.

Speaking of Project Life, I convinced my friend Haley to try it out and hope that she enjoys it as much as I do. I am so behind with school, I somehow manage to keep up with it but it is not that easy. Here's a sneak peak at Week 27:

I am going to try and post everything tonight, week 27 & 28. Hopefully I will be able to.

Some other interesting news, I am hoping that I can finish my Masters by the end of next summer! If I work hard enough and take the right amount of classes it can be possible and I will probably jump with joy. I want to move out west so bad!


  1. Wow, I wish I could be someone who cooked well with or without recipes! That's really awesome Sammy. Best of luck with finishing your Masters as well.
