I'm totally still alive, and doing well! But... you won't see me active again for who knows how long. Some updates:
My Crohn's Disease is still in remission! So hurray! I love not being sick.
I just started grad school! The past year has been a whirlwind of deciding what to do, applying to schools, getting accepted to the school I wanted, and now staring school again after 10 years away. I'm seeking my master's of social work degree, with an emphasis on mental health and youth.
I left my job as a nanny after being with the family for 7 years.
It was tough, but the hours they needed wouldn't work with my schooling. We left on awesome terms, and we're still in touch and plan on meeting up for dinner once a month.
I do still need to work full-time so that I can pay for my food and rent and stuffs. I found a job at a residential treatment program for adolescent boys with sex-related mental and behavioral problems. I've been there a few weeks now and I love it! It's challenging, but super rewarding.
I've been in a new apartment for about a month now. I love it so much. It's right across the street from a beautiful historic park, and it's in an almost 100 year old building. So much character!
I've lost 30 pounds so far this year! I'm getting my sexy back and I'm stronger than ever!
Other than that, life is pretty much the same. Drew and I have been together for 11 years now, and lived together for 9. We're adjusting to my new school/work schedule. I don't really see him during the week because I work evenings. I'm waking up when he's leaving for work, I leave before he gets home, and I get home after he's asleep. So that's different. But he's totally supportive, so I'm sure we'll make it work.
<3 to you all!
