I tend to give up on these “monthly blog challenges” out of sheer boredom of the subjects presented each day. However, it is raining out and a perfect day to curl up on the couch with Coffee By Design coffee and blog to my hearts content. I quite enjoy blogging; I also quite enjoy coffee and blankets, so why not today?! I have decided to blog normally then tackle each day’s “blog challenge; after that— a good way to go I guess.
For an update: I am still in Portland, until Sunday morning at 6:00 a.m. that is. I am loving every bit of it, today after I dealt with wedding issues (in which my grandma is inviting EVERYONE with no regards to how I feel about it) I decided to go out on this lovely 66 degree weather, and in the rain. I didn’t mind. I have to say 66 degrees is a whole lot better than 100 degrees with a heat index of 120. Trust me, I don’t mind the “cold”. However it was cold enough that it did warrant some coffee and a warm pastry!
Last night was simply brilliant. I got to meet Andrea, Steve, and their daughter Cora (who is so awesome!) I had a blast and I got to meet new people; who are awesome! I also may be able to at least get an interview for a school up here when I move. I’m crossing my fingers and praying that, that is the case. I would love to be employed when I move up here after college. Having a job would be great, but having a teaching job would be even better… I just hope it pans out to be something great.
Next week marks my last semester at ISU (yay!?!) I’m so excited and so anxious with the next chapter of my life… however, it’s terrifying. I’m so used to most of my friends being college graduates so I feel kind of behind currently, but since I see myself finishing a second BA and, hopefully at some point going to Grad school… I don’t mind academia. I guess I’m just ready for another portion of my life to begin?
However, since it is my last semester I will make the most of it! It will be weird to come up here with only knowing like three people (the others I knew, moved— ah, I miss them). It will definitely be interesting to see how life pans out…
However I have discovered something about Portland… I will either have to learn how to cut my own hair, or make it a very special occasion trip. Howevs that’s not really important at the moment.
I just know that I am happy, and I am happy to be back in Portland.
Now onto the 30 day blog challenge, -cue mysterious music- nah not really.
Something you hate about yourself.
Okay I don’t necessarily “hate” things about myself… usually it’s something I wish I could improve on, so in theory it’s something I wish to improve on.
I would have to say that would be my insecurities and my weird ability to not be able to confront someone when I’m angry. I wouldn’t say I’m completely insecure but I am a little bit; especially when something is new to me. It’s kind of like being shy but unable to confront the issue head on, same with not being able to confront someone when angry. I’m usually a very passive person when I’m angry. It takes a ton to get me to actually say something outright. I really don’t like either of those parts of my personality. However; it’s a learning experience that I’m slowly working on… and everyone has their demons, right?
