Taking A Breather

Washington, DC, USA
There's a reason I haven't been posting lately and that reason is life.  So much has been happening that I haven't had a chance to sit down and just write on here.  Between finals, jobs, and moving there's been a whirlwind of a change.  I'll catch you guys up on what's been going on.

I have decided to finish my school online through Old Dominion University getting my Bachelor's in Communications.  I will be graduated by December 2016!  Plus my brother and I are now getting our degree's from the same University.  That's a nice little bonus.  Once I realized that online school was cheaper and more convenient, Omar and I decided it was time to take our relationship to the next level and move in together!  In less than a week I am going to be living in North Carolina with Omar in our own apartment.  I. Am. So. Excited.  I haven't had my own apartment before so of course what I'm really giddy about is decorating it.  I'm also thrilled about living with my best friend.  It's a new town, new people, and a new adventure.  I'm going to be extremely homesick I already know it, but if I can go all summer living in Arizona, I think I can live 5 hours away from home.

Once all the details with the apartment and 95% of my room being packed up all that's left to do is buy a couple big furniture items and get my butt down there!  Omar had to go down tonight because of work, but this weekend my parents and I are off to move us in to our first home together.

Another reason that I have decided to take a break from my site is because I really wanted to focus on the quality of the post versus the quantity.  My ENG 123, Writing For The Web, class helped me with this lesson.  I created a WordPress Page all about Lumpy and took my time when creating post, taking pictures, and editing the post until it was the very best it could be.  I tend to post everything because this is my online diary, but really it just looks chaotic.  I want to get my website in the right direction and make it more professional.  Now that I have stopped using all the free trial I possibly can from Adobe, my wonderful parents bought me Photoshop and I can take my site to the next level.

I'm still so grateful for everyone who keeps up with my crazy life and promise there will be more to come!

xoxo, Michele
