3.6 gpa and Selfies

Well! Will you look at that? Your strong ass has survived another year! I can only hope that the ups and down of the past 12 months have impacted your life for the better. We all go through bullshit. 

For me, 2014 challenged me to put myself first the process. 

January-March 2014,  I went three months without going to church. For that first month, I felt SO guilty about not attending church. But my absence made a bigger statement than words ever could. After a sort of "spiritual stalemate" between my pastor and I, we reconciled, but I still only have one foot in and one foot out of church... But that's another post. 

April-June 2014, After a family retreat to the Smokey Mountains, I went back to Louisville, KY to kick it a little while longer. While there, my very first best friend and I broke. Read my post In Memoriam (click here) to know what I'm talking about. 

July-September 2014--Summer was...crazy. My grandmother was evicted from her apartment for a verrrryyyyy petty reason. By God's grace, we found one that is not only better, but cheaper! Count your blessings. Oh, and I finished school in September. Guess what nigga came out with a 3.6 gpa? ME! My Summa Cum Laude ass! 

October-December 2014-- In late October, after all kinds of rejection letters from grad schools, I was finally accepted into a great grad school that is only 3 hours away from my family. Yayyy! Not only that, but I already have a one bedroom unit apartment available next summer 2015 when it's time for me to relocate. 

Unencumbered of toxic people, and school--nothing was holding me back anymore. I finally had the chance to expand and grow.
I decided to get back in the dating scene. 

I met a really great guy on OK Cupid. We've been talking for like 2 months, though we've yet to meet in person. At one point, I was talking to him, and a few other guys. But the other night, I realized that the only one I really want to get to know, is him... We "clicked" on our very first conversation and our chemistry is just...crazy good. We'll see where that goes...

I can only hope that you, too, have grown and learned something from this past year. 
I'm not just talking out of my ass when I say that I love ya'll. The fact that ya'll are still here with me is empowering. 

Before this year ends, forget what you must, forgive those who've earned it, and move on. 

Til next time, ya'll! <3 font="" xoxoxoxo="">
Excuse any typos. Im not entirely sober right now. Pregame much? 
Music, you say? I found some GREAT music these past few months. 

My Song Knows what you Did in the Dark (Light 'em Up) -- Fall Out Boy-
Gas Pedal -- Sage the Gemini ft. Iamsu
Down on my Luck -- Vic Mensa
Kinda Sometimes Maybe -- Jessie Ware
Worst Behavior -- Drake
