absolutely love this song and video! people need to stop being so serious!

time has flown!! but graduation came and went! who knew it would ever happen… one more semester and hello real world!

not many can say they skydived for their 60th birthday! #happybirthdaydad #prettyamazing #livinglife @lostornetta (at SkyDance Skydiving)

hello 2013! we are going to become very good friends.

as my past posts have said, life is to short so live it fearlessly! every month i am going to do one thing that scares me, something that i wouldn’t normally do, or something that is just purely fun and memorable!

so… this year is going to be great! so far for january i chopped my hair off celebrated my grandma’s 90th birthday and got my first tattoo!!!! 

so january its been great and i will never forget you, but i’m ready to take the (literal) leap, february! bring it on! 

so i had a lot of self changing plans this year, but reading more was not on the list. granted it all started with 50 shades. yes, i know, totally jumped on the band wagon, but curiousity was killing me! what was it about. chapter 1,2,3 (could have put it down), 4,5,6 (ok liking the connection)…7 (ok, really liking, but dying to see whats next) 8!!! (holy shit!) ;) not into that at all, and would get pissed at anna, but very addicted to the story! 

after ignoring classes and reading all 3 books in a very short span (2 weeks) i needed, and wanted to get absorbed again. wanted something to get lost in, and take me from my boring, mundane life of workout, class, homework, sleep.  

as of right now i have read 27 books since may! this is huge, since i may have read 10-15 my entire life leading up to may! 

so i just bought my 28th book on itunes and am going to curl up and see where this writer takes me.

night!

so… life has flown by! it feels like yesterday that i was watching the solar eclipse with my family on our friends patio.  so i have to catch myself up.  

1. was hating my life

2. working out like crazy

3. decided to kill myself with summer school

4. babysat… a lot!

5. watched the summer olympics

6. had an ‘a ha’ moment

7. now want to live the life i was passing up

so i have been so concerned with my future, living the plan (graduate, career, marry, kids…) I decided that i want all of that but not yet! i want to live! with this realization, i want to prove people wrong, i want to drink too much, laugh too hard, i want to live too much! so here is to my new live!

haven’t been living this moto completely since the moment, but its a day to day process! the photos above are what i have been wanting, doing, or thinking about.

turned 21 october 1st. this is my birthday cake i made (a-freaking-mazing)

want to move to london after graduation (whenever that is)

going to get a tattoo!(1st!) (mom’s pissed, sister loves, and dad doesn’t know yet! we’ll see how that goes!

it will say -live with everything- in the location of the foot photo, but the script of the live on the ribs 

finally the yoga, is my goal to accomplish! still training hard, now just me and jimmy, no more risa (very long, upsetting story) but will accomplish this pose! im determined!

so until again, 

-live with everything-

my family makes me laugh! we’re such dorks!

my family makes me laugh! we’re such dorks!

So my life has changed for this past semester! While most college students are focusing on college and pushing though till summer, I have focused on myself! Yes, I know that is not what I should be doing, but for most of my life I have focused on everything else but myself! So I have temporarily placed school on the sidelines and focused on me! (sounds spoiled but trust me, I needed it!) so after working out off and on my entire life, and always being overweight, I have finally busted my butt and have slimmed down! With no help from gimmick diet pills, fad diets, body destroying cleanses, or anything else that I have never heard of, I am finally in the body I wished I could be in!  I love putting on a swimsuit. (if the bikini line can handle it) I still eat what I want, (no weight watchers lines her) and I am utterly and nauseously happy! You could not take this smile off my face. This photo describes my happiness for anyone who has ever understood there is nothing to love about love handles!

I hope everyone in this world can feel the joy and am at this very moment! Have a great day, and truly smile, you’ll begin to feel the effects!

Once i’m done with class, i will walk home turn on some really happy music really loud, (hopefully my roommate and her boyfriend won’t be there) and just dance! because if there was ever a day to dance to be happy, today is that day!
