The Glorious Gap Year

Me on my first day of university!!!!

I just spent thirty dollars on ordering pictures for my gapyear scrapbook. 157 of those suckers.
In a way I can’t believe it’s over. My feet are itching again and my travel bug is in full swing. It’s hard to stay put but I’ve got to get an education and maybe some roots in one place for once. :/
I never thought I would feel homesick for places I’ve never even seen. Maybe next summer I’ll get to see a new sunset in a country I’ve yet to set foot in.

Yesterday I ran 1.6 miles in 22 minutes!! It’s a great accomplishment for me!

I’ve been struggling a lot lately, so I made this comic to motivate myself. I hope it helps anyone else who’s in a bit of a slump like myself.

Ran two miles with dad today!!! Then did an hour of water Areobics :) very athletic today! I was suppose to go go youth group tonight but I’m super tired.
I went to kohls today and bought a new outfit for school and a dress for my bffs bday party saterday! They had a nice sale :)
My school starts tomorow. My online English comp class started today. And my math class doesn’t start until September :)
I’m nervous and excited. I hope it’s not too hard and I make friends and look super cute.

Went out for frozen yogurt yesterday with the girls! :)

When did loving yourself become so rare, that it’s revolutionary to do so?

So for some reason there was a cool shadow in the car as it was selfie time- it had a really cool effect. I look like a model in one of those cool artistic modern photography :3

The bottom photos are from three weeks ago :)
It’s not that dramatic of a difference but posting before and after pics helps motivate me! Which I need since the last two days I didn’t do so well. It’s hard to break bad eating habits.

So almost three weeks difference. I think my face is looking a lot thinner! :) (yes I did dye my hair!)

Breakfast with CAMILICIOUS! :) got to love the pancakes :) I drank like five cups of amazing coffee :3 
It’s good to be back!

Some photos from my dive! :)

My family and I went on a mini-vacation a few weeks ago! Drove down to sansibal island for the weekend :)

I got my PADI scuba license this past weekend! :) did four dives in the open ocean! My dad, who is an advanced diver, came along as well! :)

Just ran 2.5 miles in 34 minutes with the daddy-o!! Then had a spinach, celery, and buffalo chicken! Watermelon to boot!
I’m proud of myself!
One step closer to reaching my goal. :)
