Hi! Long time without a post. You're shocked, I know. I'm currently in Berlin, PA chillin with my Nonna after her hip surgery. I think I'll do a post on my week of senior citizen livin' later in the week because as of right now I'm only on Day 2. So far the day is scheduled around when we'll eat next, day time television, and pill takin time. We even had a grand adventure and sat on the back porch a while. I'll be honest, I thought I was going to have a hard time with this schedule. But, so far I'm loving it. It is a simple life and I am going to enjoy it this week. I'm also really enjoying taking care of Nonna. I think there is value and a great love in taking care of your elders, and I'm honestly glad I'm getting the opportunity to do it. I look forward to give you a full recep of my senior citizen livin' at the end of the week!

Side note: I'm watching The Voice and yall Adam Levine is flawless. FLAWLESS. Also that model girlfriend of his broke up with him and broke his heart and I am ticked. How dareth she!! I don't care that she herself is a model and is also flawless...who does she think she is!?

I'm going to make a declaration. I am going to workout 5 days in a row this week. Day 1: check! Seriously, if I can't work out everyday this week I have no excuse. If I can't squeeze in a run between The Ellen Show and my afternoon nap then I just GIVE UP! I hope this public declaration gives me motivation or at least it may shame me into doing it on Day 5.

T-minus about a month and a half before I leave for San Angelo. Just typing that gave me a weird pressure in my chest. I'm nervous. I'm also feeling about as ready as I can possibly feel. This past year has been an interesting one for me. I feel like I have grown in independence and self-assuredness, and I have zero clue has this happened. I just know I feel different than I did a few months ago. I've noticed I am holding myself to more "adult" standards so maybe that's why I feel more mature? Maybe some of your are shaking your heads and saying "aw, that's cute. She thinks she's more mature." All I know is that I am not yet 23 (and I haven't been in any hurry to be 23), but for the past 6 months I've beening throwing around the "I'm 23 years old" card either to prove to my parents I'm an adult and that they have to treat me like one, or when something silly and immature happens to point out that my friends and I are adults and we have to act like it. Haha because clearly 23 year olds are so much more mature than 22 year olds. I guess I'm already feeling 23, and this is the first time that I've felt a certain age before I was actually there. I know I'm not perfect and nor will I be. I will probably throw a fit like a middle school girl at some point, but for the most part I just feel like this upcoming birthdays will be on of those ones where I wake up and feel older. Ok, let's end this scene of introspective-ness

That's all :)
