Hello...tap...tap...is this thing on?

So I have come to an understanding that I am a terrible texter. One might think that it would stop me from texting all the time...but it doesn't. Am I the only person who is misunderstood about 80% of the time that I send a message out? Is it because I text what I would say?

I don't know...anyway life has been good. I have been busy working. We just got finished with our assessment by the department of energy. It went well but I am glad that it is over.
It is finally starting to look like summer around here...Hopefully it sticks around :)

So the big thing that has happened reciently is that I bought a new car. Not just a new one but a brand spanking new one :D it is a 2010 Toyota Yaris. It had 10 miles when I bought it. I love it a little bit. It kind of reminds me of an oompa loompa (short and fat and cute :) His name is Marvin.



This last couple of weeks has been graduation for my little brother. That has been interesting. (I don't say that sarcastically either) It is strange to look at these kids and see what I felt when I was graduating. I thought it was such a huge accomplishment, that I had "made it" so far. I just wanted to tell all of them that graduation is mearly a blip on the radar of exciting things that have happened in my life. It is also amazing how long it has been. I graduated 8 years ago. Sometimes when I think about that I get a little bummed. If my 18 year old self saw me today I am pretty sure she would say...What the heck?!? I wouldn't blame her either. Life has taken some different routes than anticipated. I can't change that. What I can do, however, is roll with it. Take the good and the bad and learn from it and come out a better person in the end. I also have to not let myself off too easy. I need to continue to progress and take charge of my life. If life is happening around me I am not living it, I am just the result of consequence and chance. I am starting to realize that although my life is not what I thought it would be like by now I still have opportunities to be awesome. I might not be married with kids (yes...that is where I thought I would be by now) but I still have plenty of opportunities to change the world. There are so many people that need help. There are so many people that are looking for a friend. I can do that. I can "save the world" just differently than I first planned.

Ok...so.... sorry about this post. It felt good to write it out...I hope that I am not the only person that has felt this way. I am pretty sure that I am not :)
