Miss Cleo or Divine Intervention?

Ring ring..... could I be the new Miss Cleo? Anyone remember her? 
I think I've become the new Miss Cleo...minus the 1800 number, lawsuits and jail time. For the past week I've had the most vivid, crazy dreams. For some people this is normal but for me it isn't. I rarely dream and if I do, I never remember them. So when I have a reoccurring dream or an actual dream that I can remember it usually affects me and my day.

I usually don't think anything of the dreams. I shrug them off as nothing and tell myself they were either caused by something I ate, something I've read or something I've seen in a movie or on television. However, this week one dream has profoundly effected me. To explain it, I'm going to have to give a little back story. Bare with me. 

Near the end of 2007, I got extremely sick. I was having serious stomach problems. I became so sick that one night after months of feeling horrible, seeing doctors and never getting answers that I begged God to either just let me die (which I'm extremely afraid of) or to get better. At that point in my life, God and I had had it out multiple times. I was struggling to believe in anything but I was raised in a very religious family so when I got sick, I looked for answers. Months later I finally started getting better and after a year I was basically back to normal days of feeling ok. Yet, this time I felt different. I started saying a nightly pray. AND if you know me, then you know that was a big step for me to take. When I don't understand things, or don't know what to do, or I have a day where I feel sick, I always go address it in my nightly prayer. 

So...this leads me back to the dreams. At the start of this week, I said my nightly prayers and went to bed. I woke up and I could remember the entire dream I'd just had. In the dream someone I knew and had once dated was getting engaged. In the dream I was there, watching it unfold. I shrugged off the dream and went on with me day. A few hours later, I'm at work and I find out that the person in my dream... got engaged. It scared the crap out of me. Why? Because I may or may not have mentioned them in my nightly pow wow with God. Now, why am I talking about this? I seriously believe that God was preparing me for it. I think he knew that I needed the heads up. And I've had 2 other come true dreams this week, hence the miss cleo (seeing the future) reference. 

Now you can laugh or call me crazy or think that I've seriously went off the deep end but I really do think that I was given that dream. And a few years ago, if I would have read this I would have thought, wow that girl is losing it. Now... not so much. I mean do you ever feel like God has intervened in your life problems?

Theater Thursday

Welcome! It's Thursday so that means it's time for another Theater Thursday! This week in honor of the Olympics, we're taking a look at Cool Runnings

Cool Runnings is based on the true story of the First Jamaican bobsledding team trying to make it to the Olympics. Derice Bannock, a sprinter trying to make it to the summer games becomes involved in an accident during a qualifying race and misses out on making the team. Trying to figure out a way to make it to the Olympics he learns that an ex-bobsledding champion now coach is living on the island... Irving Blitzer (John Candy). Derice tries to convince him to coach him to the Olympics and to help start a team. Blitzer (Candy) wants no part in it yet becomes convinced when Derice let's him know that him and his father were once friends. 
Derice has an open house looking for 3 teammates. He enlists his good friend Sanka Coffie (Doug E. Doug), fellow sprinter Yul Brenner and a rich boy, Junior Bevil. They begin practice, start raising money and head off to the Calgary games without a sponsor, hoping to qualify to race. 
The 1988 Jamaican Bobsled team & Coach
Fun Fact: The 1st Jamaican Bobsledding team competed at the 1988 Olympic games and included the four following men: Devon Harris, Dudley Stokes, Michael White and Samuel Clayton.

Spilling the Beans

I have a confession to make. I am an obsessive list maker. There I said it. Please don't hate me. 
I make a "To-Do" list every single day. At the end of the day, if all my items on the list have been marked off then I feel very accomplished. I can't help it, I've been this way for years. I find these lists everywhere. Maybe I should make it an item on my list to find and throw out all of my random "to do" lists laying around. 

Why am I talking about this? Well that's because yesterday I got to mark off a big item on my list. I booked my flights for the month of May. If you thought I was driving out there, heck no! Also, I started the process of getting ride of things I don't need to take. I began with my bedroom closets (yes I said closets plural, I have 2) and oh my goodness! I think I have every piece of clothing I've ever bought. I was in a sorority in college and if you know anything about sorority life, it's that we love our t-shirts. I think I counted at least 20 greek life related t-shirts, not including big/little sweatshirts. I can't throw those out! The 1990's parachute pants...yeah those can be go bye bye. 

I'm thinking I'm going to have to have my very 1st yard sale come spring. Maybe someone out there is dying for a VHS of Bedknobs and Broomsticks, a cassette player stereo or out dated clothing to wear to themed parties.

It's not where I originally was going but I think it's going to be fabulous! It's going to be a crazy, long adventure getting there but life is all about challenges, chances and making the most of it. I'm willing and welcoming it with open arms. You never know what can happen! 

Doesn't it just look amazing!?!

The Brownie Heard Round the World

After talking about butterscotch brownies yesterday, a lot of you seemed to want the recipe to them. Here it is, Enjoy!
1 cup of butterscotch chips
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour 
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9 inch baking pan. Melt the butterscotch chips in a small saucepan over low heat, constantly stirring it. Set aside. 

Beat the brown sugar and butter in a large bowl until light and puffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Beat in melted butterscotch chips and vanilla. Combine flour, baking power and salt in small bowl, add to butter mixture. Beat until well blended. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. 

Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and center is set. Place pan on wire rack. Cool completely before eating. Cut into 2 inch squares.  I've noticed it's better to cut them while still hot. It makes it much easier.

Tick Tock, Tick Tock

I am slowly going insane. I'm counting down the days until I'm out of here. I think I might have to stop counting. Everyday I get really excited that it's a new day, which brings me one step closer.... yet at the same time I'm getting frustrated because it feels so far away. I mean it's not really that far away but it's still far enough that it's making me cranky. Please, please, please dear month of May get here soon!

In other news, I think I've discovered the greatest thing since sliced bread. I know, I know. You're probably thinking, "WHAT could that be?!" The answer... 
Butterscotch brownies. Where have these been all my life? They are amazing, little pieces of heaven. Secretly, they've come into my life at the right time because I gave up chocolate. Have you ever tried them? I think I've ate 4 in the last day and a half. 

So, how did I spend my weekend? Besides working, I watched the Olympics of course! Other than that not a lot....just a lot of dreaming of this place...

Ahh..I can't wait till the end of May.

Dying on the toilet

Ok, I have to admit it. I think I have a tiny fear of dying on the toilet. Can you imagine!?! How awful would that be. Not only for the fact that you died, but on the toilet of all places. Look at poor Elvis. He was and still is the King of rock n' roll and some people only remember him for dying on the toilet. 

From now on, I'm taking my cell phone to the bathroom at all times...just incase. Ok, so I got bored and decided to research it. So according to (not kidding people it's a real site) Elvis died in the bathroom beside the toilet, technically not on it. But still...he was way too close to it because see... look how things can get twisted! 
I also love that even though the site is called poop report they referred to his incident as "defecating". 

Other famous people who have died while on the toilet or in the bathroom: Orville Redenbacher, King Henry III, Edward I and a ton of other Royalty.

Theater Thursday

It's that time again! It's Theater Thursday! 
With the temperatures still below freezing around here, I think it's about time we heat it up. So without further ado, this week's featured movie is Fool's Gold
Tess (Kate Hudson) is a steward on millionaire Nigel Honeycutt's yacht. When Nigel's boat docks in the key's of Florida to pick up his daughter Jemma, Tess attends her divorce hearing. Finn (Matthew McConaughey) her soon to be ex-husband however is late due to his findings off Top Sale Key Island in the Bahamas. Once Finn makes it to the hearing, he's learned it's too late and get's nothing in the divorce. He decides to tell Tess what he found while being in the Bahamas. A new piece of the clue into finding their spanish treasure that they'd hunted years for together. 
Tess not believing him heads back to the Honeycutt yacht. While on board she takes a moment to research the clue Finn told her about. She's amazed with what she sees. Realizing she must seize the opportunity she decides to approach her boss Nigel with the idea of a treasure hunt. Finn, had the same idea and maneuvers his way onto the yacht. 

Jemma and Nigel agree to the treasure hunt and the entire gang heads to the Bahamas in search of treasure. Will they find the treasure or will they find something they hadn't bargained for?

Fun fact: Even though it's said to take place in the Bahamas, the movie was actually filmed in Australia. 
Now... here's the really fun part. Have a movie that's out on dvd, that you love? Post about it and then come back here and link up.

My Little Pony

Yesterday I heard about a grown woman (mid 30's), scream to her husband, "You ruined my life because you didn't buy me a pony!" His response: "We live in the city, on a busy street. How are you going to keep a pony?!?" They're divorced now. Good call dude. 
Did anyone watch last nights coverage of the Olympics? I did. Let's talk about 2 things: Men's Figure Skating and USA snowboarder, Lindsey Jacobellis. 
Now don't get me wrong, I love figure skating. It's one of my favorite events to watch during the games. However, what is up with some of these guys outfits?!? Did you see Johnny Weir and his costume?

If you don't normally watch skating...He's basically the equivalent to Adam Lambert. He pushes the limit of what's appropriate "artistry" on the ice. I personally think he got his outfit inspiration from watching Blades of Glory. And yes..that's a pink tassel hanging from his shoulder. 

Next up, Lindsey Jacobellis. If you watched the 2006 Torino Olympics then you probably remember this girl. 

In 2006 during her snow boarding event, she was clearly in the lead. She was going to win the gold medal. It was obvious to everyone, including her. She took an extra moment to show off and do an extra trick as she was coming down the last hill. Basically....she decided to showboat. What happened next was embarrassing. She fell. Her showboating trip cost her and the USA the gold medal. 

Flash forward to 2010 she's back at the games. She's here for redemption. She's said it more than once that she's here to redeem herself and win the gold medal. Yesterday was the day, it was put up or shut up time. What happened? She fell. In the semi finals. She didn't make it on the podium. Life lesson: When you're in the Olympics, in competition, never showboat.

A Big News Announcement

By the end of this post, you're going to hear big news.....
I don't know about you, but I'm glad to see a new week. Last week was a rough one for me. I still feel emotionally drained. Let's just say last week involved a breakdown and there was no automobile involved. I think everything that's been going on for the last few months finally hit me. I've been working a lot recently and since my job can get really stressful at times it can take a lot out of a person. BUT I'm very happy to have a job in these hard economic times. Plus the fact that I can transfer to basically anywhere and keep working! Major plus.

I'm also still recovering from a work related accident. Hence me having to go to the doctor 3 times a week for the past two weeks. It's slowly getting better though and for that I'm grateful. I'm sure you remember the massage incident story lol. I have another appointment tomorrow...let's hope that massage goes over without incident. 

I think what's been the most stressful though, and this is the breaking news announcement the fact that I'm in the process of trying to move. I'm not talking about a down the block kind of move either. I'm talking east coast meets west coast kind of move. Where you call up movers and they quote you a 5 figure number as to what it'll cost you for them to haul your junk across the good ol' USA. Once, hearing those prices, it's amazing how fast you're willing to part with useless belongings. Maybe they should quote moving prices to people on the show Hoarders. That would definitely help them get over it. 

Now that I've given you a glimpse as to what's been going on, hopefully this helps explain some of my crazy posts recently. Oh, btw: So a few of you that I know, are already aware of exactly where I'm moving to but I'd really appreciate you not spilling the beans on here yet. Thanks!

A Magical Time

Last night the Olympics started in full swing. 
I love the Olympics. I love everything they represent. I love that people put aside differences, come together and celebrate the games. Countries may not always get along but I always find it amazing that for 16 days everyone comes together. I've been watching the Olympics since I can remember. I first winter games I remember watching were in 1992 at Albertville, France. I've been hooked since. 

The opening ceremonies did not disappoint. I thought what they did with the led screened floor was amazing! The performers were great (even though Sarah Mclachan can't lip sing to save her life). Favorite songs, Joni Mitchell's I've looked at Love and of course Hallelujah. The minute of silence for the death of the Georgian athlete was so touching. I don't think there was a peep in that whole stadium. 

Now that the games have started, I can't wait for the ski jumping, bobsledding and figure skating to begin. My dvr is going to be getting a major workout. I watch everything...even the curling.
What's your favorite sport to watch?

What Not to say/do on a date Valentine's Edition

Normally in these segments I would tell you about the awful horrendous bad dates that I've had the fork in the eye privilege of going out on. However, this time I'm going to tell you about one of the best dates I've ever went on. 
It took place at the Newport Aquarium. 
Now if you know anything about me you know that I love tropical fish and sea turtles so this place was right up my alley. Neither my date nor I had ever been to this particular aquarium so we were both really excited. We went on a weekday so it wasn't crowded at all. 
We got to walk around, holding hands all the while being surrounded by beautiful sea creatures. While we were there we got to see....
the diving show
The penguins swimming and walking around

and they even had alligators! When one of the alligators moved (which I didn't know was sitting there) I jumped about 3 feet in the air. I'm pretty for sure I left the boy with a permanent bruise on his hand from squeezing it so tight. 

I think what made the date one of my best was the fact that we could walk around together and just talk. We laughed and smiled and got to really enjoy each others company. After we left the aquarium we hit up some of the shops that surround it, including the giant Barnes & Noble.
It was and always will be one of my most memorable and fun dates ever.

Theater Thursday

Welcome to Theater Thursday! It's a fun place to be! This week the majority of the U.S. has been so cold and wintery! For that fact, we're taking a look at the movie New In Town

Lucy(Zellweger) a Vice President hopeful travels from her cushy Miami, Florida lifestyle to the small town of New Olm, Minnesota. There she must oversee a factory through a revitalization and possible downsize. 
Being the new girl in town, she's received with a cold reception, that's almost as cold as the weather. The only person willing to be her friend is Blanch, her secretary. Who loves to scrapbook, makes tapioca pudding and bring Jesus into everyday conversation. Blanch also brings Ted(Connick Jr) into Lucy's life. 
Ted & Lucy don't see eye to eye which creates a volatile relationship. After a freak accident in the snow, Lucy learns that living in a small town isn't as bad as she once thought. She also becomes faced with the fact that she'll have to choose between putting her career first or doing the right thing. 

Fun Fact: This movie was actually filmed in Winnipeg, Canada. During filming the temperatures reached -55 degrees F. 

If you've never seen this movie, it's definitely worth watching. It's cute and I couldn't help fall in love with Harry Connick Jr. 

Now... here's the really fun part. Have a movie that's out on dvd, that you love? Post about it and then come back here and link up.

Just Me

I'm just trying to live my life the best that I know how to. I'm not perfect. I make mistakes. I fall down but I get right back up again. People may think I'm strange but I'd rather be viewed as different than blend in with everyone else.

I have a few very big, life changing decisions to make in the next few days and I feel like I still have no idea what to do. I'm afraid of making the wrong choices. I'm afraid of screwing up and failing in the end. 

Hopefully I can make the right decisions that will end up the best way possible.

Giveaway Winner! You Asked...I Answered Finale

Drumroll please..... The winner of my 300th post giveaway, chosen at random using is... BSS! Send me an e-mail with your address and which design you want! 

As promised here's the rest of the questions I was asked for my 300th post! 
Katie asked: If you could live anywhere, where would it be? What is your dream career? Overseas I'd say England. In the United States, I'd say...California. I'd love to be able to Travel and get paid for it but I don't see that working out. I'd have to go with working for ICE. 

SCH asked:What is your favorite thing to do with friends? What is the best date you've ever been on? I'm usually up for anything that's legal and fun. Going to the movies, shopping, eating out, working out, etc. As for the best date, I'm going to do a post on it for Valentines Day. 

Allison asked:If you could be on any reality tv show what would you choose and why? If you could have any super power what would you choose and why? As for the tv show, I'd choose Big Brother. I think it'd be a lot of fun. If I couldn't be on that show then I'd want my own haha. The super power: Smiting. I've given it a lot of thought (we actually joke about this subject at work a lot). I think the reason why we don't have it is because of me. I think the higher powers above know that I would over use it. 

Mrs. Ruby asked:What are the top three things you absolutely can't live without? (Can't be family or friends) :) #1 A link to the world whether it be tv, internet, phone. I need at least one of them at all times. #2 Face Wipes. If I don't clean my face with them at night then the next morning I'll be looking at the 14 year old version of me in the mirror. #3 Drive Thru's. There's always at least one night of the week I don't feel like cooking. 

Jessica asked:Can you give us a description of that perfect guy for you? You know.. the one you've dreamed about since you were 2. The guy for me is someone who has a sense of humor, can laugh at anything and himself. Loves to travel, wants children, non smoker, adores me, doesn't play games, likes cuddling on the couch while staying in and is close in age to me. Is successful in his career and has goals. Know's who he is and where he wants to go in life. 

Nat asked:If you were stranded on an island what 3 things would you take with you? #1 Chapstick. My lips blister in the heat something fierce! So that's a must have item at all times for me. #2 A book. I'd get extremely bored sitting there without television, the internet or a phone. So I'd need something to read. #3 Sunglasses. My eyes can't handle bright lights. Even during dark rainy days you'll see me in my car and outside still sporting the shades.

You Asked...I Answered Part 1

*Today is the last day to enter my giveaway, which can be found here.* The winner will be announced on Tuesday. 

The giant snow storm that hit the east coast... it left my town with only 8 inches of snow. Thanks mother nature, it was a big let down for me. However, tonight a friend and I are going gambling and to see Dear John. I have mixed emotions about seeing it. I've read the book and I hated the ending. So we'll see...

In honor of my 300th post, I gave the opportunity to ask me anything. You shall receive... Enjoy! PS: You guys asked me so many questions that I've had to break it up into 2 posts. This is post 1. 

Dollface asked: What is the craziest shenanigan you have ever been involved in?! Would you do it again? Why or why not? Honestly, there's been so many that I don't think I could give just 1 example. Most of my shenanigans are fun so yes, I'd do it again. 

AmberDenae,MrsEyeCanSee & Shoshanah asked:What got you into blogging? I was at a Beach Boys Concert, looked around and realized that I was 1 of only 2 people in the place under the age of 45. I knew then that I had to document my crazy life. Plus I was bored, wasn't working and didn't have anything else to do. 

KS asked:Where did you grow up? I grew up in a place called Huntington. If you've ever seen the movie We Are Marshall then you know exactly where I grew up.

K asked:If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go and why?? If I had to pick a place that I've never visited I'd say Australia. It just seems so amazing there. If I could go back to somewhere I've been..hands down London, England. I love that place.

Kpod asked:You have mentioned living in a few different places in the past few years .. I am curious as to what brought you to these places and how you ended up back where you are? I've moved because of work and people. I ended up back where I'm at for my current job. However, I'm gearing up for another move. Trust me it's gonna be big news!

Brittany asked:What is your dream car?? If you were to have a baby right now what would you name him/her? Dream Car-A Range Rover. Baby names- Wheaton & Sadie (I love both of them).

Allison asked:How did you meet your beau? If, of all your movies, you had to pick just one. ONE that you could watch for the rest of your life, what movie would you pick? I try to keep him off my blog but we in school. I could watch the movie Shag for forever. It my 1st real movie post on here as well. Here's the link

JG asked:if you could achieve any one thing this year, what would it be? That would be my goal of being debt free. 

Laura&Ryan asked:Where do you hope to be in 5 years? Traveling, married, happy, working a job I love. 

Shoshanah asked:If you could change one thing in your past what would it be? What's your favorite flavor of ice cream? You seem to read almost every blog I do, and I'm sure even more! How do you find all the blogs you read? And how do you keep up with them all? My motto is "Everything Happens for a reason" I don't regret anything. I'm a simple girl, I love vanilla/chocolate ice cream. The blogs I follow, I always try to read. I may not comment on every single one but I read them. I usually find a blog by reading someone else's. Most of the time my google reader is exploding. 

Llama asked:What is your dream job? My dream job would be to travel and get paid for it. However, I don't think that'll ever happen. I currently work for the government but I'd love to end up working for ICE. 

Didn't see your question? Check back tomorrow. It'll be answered tomorrow.

The Gipper

First of all DON'T FORGET TO ENTER MY GIVEAWAY! You can find the link on the right sidebar. 
I've been a little MIA around here and this is why...

Incase you haven't heard...the east coast is getting dumped on with snow. Well...I live over on the east coast so count me in! Too bad I still have to somehow get to work tomorrow morning. Ekk! Hopefully I won't slip and slide down the road and up the hill. Stay warm everyone!

Theater Thursday

This week's featured movie is Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
I absolutely love this movie! Even though I own it on dvd, I still watch it every time it comes on television. It's such a fun movie, I always find myself singing along and smiling. 
Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory came out in 1971. Mr. Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder) has decided to open his chocolate factory doors to the public, specifically 5 children.
To be one of the 5 people, you have to find a golden ticket. The catch is...the golden tickets are hidden on the inside of 5 chocolate bars located anywhere in the world. Since the factory doors have been closed for years, naturally everyone on the planet wants to get inside! The world gets flipped upside down looking for these tickets. Once the 5 tickets have been found the group gathers to go inside the factory. Once inside they see things they never dreamed possible or could have ever imagined. Along the way, misbehaving children see bad results and their trip cut short. So who will make it through the factory in one piece? 
Trust me...don't to the nearest Best Buy or Target and purchase this dvd. It's one to be owned...not rented! 
Now here's the really fun part! Have a movie you love or have recently watched that's out on dvd and think others should see it too? Post about it, then come back here and link up!

A Relaxing Massage?

Normally, I'm not a 2 posts a day kinda girl but I feel this deserves it's own post. 
I haven't mentioned it but last week on Thursday, I injured my arm at work. I couldn't get in to see the Doctor until Monday. I was there for about 2 hours. At the end of that appointment she set me up for another one for Wednesday (today). I didn't think much about it but when she went to schedule it she mentioned another doctor but was talking more to her scheduling assistant than to me so I didn't think to ask. 

So.... I get there today for my appointment. I signed in and sat down in the waiting room. Out of no where this guy in scrubs comes up to me and says, "Are you Jennifer?" I can see he's wearing scrubs so I'm assuming maybe the doctor is busying and he's just going to take me back to the room to get started or something. When I tell him, "Yes, that's me." He comes back with something I didn't understand.  "Well as soon as the patient before you finished dressing, I'll get the room ready and then you can go back."

I don't know if it was because I was tired or what, but I totally wasn't getting it. I mean really, the doctor has like 4 different patient rooms. Why would I need to just wait on the one when I could see there was no one else waiting or already back in the rooms. Anyways, I just sat there and sat, "Oh...ok." So the other patient leaves, the scrubs guy goes in, does his thing and then comes back out telling me I can go in the room now. This is where I got my clue me in notice. 

I go into the room and there's no lights on and I can see it's a massage table. He asks me if I've ever had one before and if so what I can. I inform him that I have indeed had a massage before and inform him that I wasn't aware I was having one today. He explained to me that the doctor had scheduled one so my muscles would be easier to work with once he's done. I say, alright and then he tells me what to strip down to.  
Um....I wish someone would have told me I was stripping down my my bare skin today. Thank goodness I had just showered and shaved earlier in the morning. 

So I'm laying on the table...nude (per his request), under the sheet waiting for him to start. Did I mention he was gorgeous? Picture Vin Diesel. His twin was my massage therapist. So now we're about half way into the massage and my stomach starts hurting really bad. Oh, no! I need to fart pass gas. I'm laying there clinched my butt muscles together holding it in. The super hot therapist gets to my butt and starts working on the muscles. He goes, "Um is the pressure too much? You seem tense here." I obviously couldn't say, Um dude I'm holding in a giant fart. So I was just like,"oh really hm....strange."

The massage felt great but I kid you not it was probably the longest 45 mins of my life. I don't think I relaxed at all because of my stomach issues...


Today is the last day to ask me any questions for my Q&A post. I'll be posting the answers to the questions you guys have asked on Friday so if you have any you'd like to ask, you can either post them on this entry or the original one found here.

Also, if you haven't done so...ENTER MY GIVEAWAY! You have until February 8th to do so. It can be found here

Don't forget tomorrow is Theater Thursday, so if you have a movie you love that's out on dvd, post about it! Then come back here and link up so everyone can see it! Trust's fun!

About yesterdays was NOT boy related. Here's a hint... It's something that you normally do all day, 5 days a week. That's all I can say about it. You are all smart cookies. You'll know.

A Predicament

*Don't forget to enter my giveaway, located here!*

Today I come here with a heavy heart. I have so much I want to say, yet I don't know how to say it because I can't give serious details. I guess I should start at the beginning. Back in November I wrote this post. At the time I was happy and super excited about the future and making some big changes. Since then things have not gone as planned. I guess they never really do. However, one good thing is, that I've been paying off debt hardcore! Which is going to enable me to do some things I've been wanting to do. 

So...what am I rambling about? Here's the deal: I got myself into a situation that started off great. I thought, "Oh my goodness! This is amazing, how did I get so lucky?!?" As time has passed, the situation that was great has went to horrible. Ok, not horrible...just...I want to scream everyday from the top of my lungs, about how bad it actually sucks. So basically, yeah... it's not good. 

Do I keep going on the way things are, hoping they'll get better? All the while being miserable. OR Do I take the harder road and hope for a better outcome knowing that I may not be any happier at the end?  Life really does have some tough choices....
