Life Update!

In my opinion, I think it’s time for a little life update… There’s some big news!

To start things off, I turned 17 in March and had a great birthday! I recently at the end of the school year found out I get to graduate early (January 2019)! I had more than enough credits at the end of my junior year, I just needed PIG and economics in order to graduate, which I haven’t taken yet, hence why i have to wait until January to actually graduate.

My mom bought a new house, and my dad’s girlfriend of 5 years (that he just told me about a few days ago) is coming to live with us for six months since she lives in Taiwan. So yeah, that’s gonna be a huge adjustment. My parents JUST separated now he’s already having us meet his girlfriend. Whatever, I’ll keep an open mind about it all.

Here’s part of the big news- I’M GETTING MARRIED!!! Yes, I know, I’m only 17 and he’s only 20, that’s really young to get engaged. But I found someone I love with my entire heart plus more and who loves me back, so feelings are mutual. Getting engaged young just means we have more time to do things together. It isn’t necessarily rushing things, but people are still gonna hate no matter what the circumstances are. As long as we’re happy with the decisions we make, which we are, we’re fine.

This goes along with the big news, and might actually be even BIGGER news! I’m pregnant! And before you ask- no, that is not why we got engaged. We got engaged in April and I just found out we have a baby on the way. However, it’s too early in the pregnancy to really talk about it with anyone except my fiancĂ©. If everything continues to go well, expect more updates!!

Thanks for reading guys, what’s been new with you?!

What Do I Want To Do?

This is going to be somewhat of a confusing post, I just want to get my ideas and what’s going through my head written down, so bear with me for a minute.

There comes a time for everyone when we need to decide what it is we want to do with our lives. Do you want to be a doctor? A teacher? What about raising fish at a fish hatchery? There’s so many options out there, which is partly what makes the decision so difficult for so many of us. Some people know their whole lives exactly what they want to do and how they’re going to do it. Others, like me, have no clue.

My whole life, I’ve wanted to go into the medical field. But, with switching to an alternative school freshman year that doesn’t offer advanced regents diplomas, makes it harder for me to do that. Yes, I can still do it, but it’ll be a lot harder. And talking with my guidance counselor about all my options makes me realize everything else that’s out there. Do I still want to go into the medical field? It all leaves me unsure on what to do. A new chapter of my life is about to begin and I’m going in blind. I have no clue anymore what I’m good at, what my skills are, what I want to do. It’s confusing and leaves me with a lot of stress…

I started taking career quizzes online, the results are all very similar- doctor, nurse, counselor. What I need to do, is find something that’s a little bit of everything in a way. What I’m leaning most towards now, is a psychologist. My aunt owns her own practice so I would already have a good job lined up, and she would be able to help me through it. I want to help people, and given everything I’ve gone through, I feel as if I would be good at that.

If anyone has any comments, please feel free to leave them! Again, I’m sorry this isn’t your typical blog post and it’s more of me just trying to figure things out, but maybe other people are in the same position as I am and we can help each other out! Thanks guys, have a fantastic day! (:

Beautiful Chaos

Beautiful Chaos- Robert M. Drake
She had a little rebel in her. A little chaos and a little gentleness..
The most beautiful things begin in chaos..
Be you. Be original. Be all the things they say you cannot be. rebellion is the key. Break the rules, and you will find something they have never seen before..
Live in the moment. All else means nothing..

Summer Bucket List

Even though it’s already the end of July, I’m gonna start my summer bucket list now. It’s never too late to start, right? Well, unless it was like September or something…Then maybe I wouldn’t wanna jump off a cliff in a bikini.

The first thing I want to do before summer ends is to go cliff jumping! I’ve done this before and it’s the most amazing thing, I love it! You get an adrenaline rush and everything. 

Next, I want to have a tumblr theme campout with a friend. I’ve always wanted to hang up lights outside in the yard or at a campsite and lay out a bunch of pillows and blankets and have a movie playing on a laptop or something. It’s just one of those things that I think would be so fun and that I have always wanted to do.

When I go on my beach vacation this year, there’s two things I wanna check off my summer bucket list! The first is to wake up early enough to watch the sunrise on the beach when nobody’s there. It’s such a peaceful and beautiful thing, ESPECIALLY when you see dolphins!! The second part is to find a straw and drink straight out of a coconut! This I’ve never tried, but pictures of it always look so tumblr and cute, and it’s always fun to try new things! Plus, I do like coconut so hopefully I think it’s good!

Two summers ago, me and my friend wanted to make a giant slip-n-slide, so we did! It was really fun to make and to go on. It’s also really simple to set up, you just simply lay out a few tarps and put a hose at the top and drizzle some soap on and that’s basically it!

Have you ever been to a drive-in movie? If not, you park in a big field and you can lay in the grass or your car, and a movie is projected onto a huge screen. It’s a really good idea for a date, or even just something fun to do! I haven’t been to one in a while, so I definitely wanna do that again sometime soon!
I know usually bucket lists are made up of things you’ve never done before. Even though I’ve done most of these things in the past, they’re so great I still want to check them off for this summer! I think you guys should definitely try at least one of these things and tell me what you think, or if you’ve done any of them let me know what it was like!
