New Year, New Beginnings

I know, I know. A generic, cliche New Year post 2 months late. But hey! this is how I do things…half ass. Sue me.

I’ll skip the bullshit, 2012 was not a good year for me. I spent majority of the year telling myself things would get better. They had to – because there was no way it could get worse. Lesson learned: not a good idea to say that, because that’s when they do.

I couldn’t be more excited that 2013 has gotten off to an amazing start. I actually feel like I am living my life again, and after a year of standing still, I have some catching up to do. My boyfriend has been amazing (and patient) enough to spend an awful lot of his free time go on random bucket list adventures with me.

While all of the little things we have done so far mean a lot to me, I also want to get some of my larger bucket list goals accomplished as well. Being broke and working too much kind of hinder my ability to do this, but I have managed to book my dream vacation.

I am going to Grand Cayman in April!

Yup, if you get anything from this pointless post, that should be it.

Can you be jealous?
…just for a second?

I have been wanting to run [errr fly] away to the Cayman Islands for quite a few years now. It was actually supposed to be my honeymoon destination. But hey, I don’t have time to wait for that.

Until then, I plan on taking more risks and living my life every day.



  1. 1. I'm super jealous of a tropical vacation.
    2. I've heard several times in the past couple months stories that give evidence that it's better to be somewhat of a pessimist in life. Or maybe a realist. The point is, facing the fact that life isn't always great and it doesn't always work out in our favor may be better for our mental health than always trying to convince ourselves it'll get better. Because when it doesn't get better, our confidence in life is kind of shot. I thought it was pretty interesting. Then again, I'm pretty pessimistic, so maybe I'm just looking for an excuse ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Is it wrong of me to say I am glad you are jealous?! Because I'm not… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I would agree that being a pessimist has its benefits. I like to call myself a realist. I am fully aware that life is NOT always wonderful.

    Well congrats on the vacay… I certainly hope you enjoy it. Looking forward to it is probably one of the best feelings ever.

    And congrats too on starting off the new year with a positive attitude.
