As I type this, I’m picturing myself yelling down a long, dark, empty hallway and hearing an echo while I’m calling out to see if anyone is around or talking to an empty room as I laugh uncomfortably while trying to find something interesting to say. Nothing is immediately coming to mind, so I’ll just move along.
I guess I’m back. Last year was a bit…much. Lorenzo and I purchased our first home, moved out of our apartment and lived with friends for the first half of the year. We are both still in the military, and I am STILL in school. The good news is that I have two more classes to go and then I am D-O-N-E. I can hardly contain the excitement of the idea not having homework. One of my sisters graduated with her MBA last June, and when I asked her how she celebrated after her last class, she said she slept…for two days. I can’t wait.
Lorenzo and I are enjoying the home, even though I never thought furniture shopping would be such a strenuous task. It’s quite annoying. I’ll be happy when I can go back to clothes and shoe shopping when the house is furnished (I’ll probably be broke by then, but I’m optimistic).
Here’s to a successful, focused, and consistent 2018!
