Always Remembering You

Today, I realized I haven't taken my Beating Epilepsy band off in almost 2 years.
 
 
Remember little Cole? That little boy changed my life so much, that I love to look down at my wrist, and be reminded of him daily.
 
 
When I look at this band, I think of the amazing Summer I spent doing fundraisers, and getting to know this little boy and his family. It reminds me to know how blessed I am. It reminds me to be a better person. It reminds me to be strong no matter what. It seems insignificant to people who don't know what it is, but to me, it's important I keep it on as long as possible. I changed that year and like to think I became a better person all because of a little boy and his family.

Acura And Beyond?

I'm SUCH a nerd that every time I see the Acura logo on a car...

 
I think of Star Trek...
 
Come on now though, it's pretty similar, I just actually noticed it. See, I'm a nerd!
 
Anyways, I was talking to Marvel a couple days ago about how I always tease him by giving him kisses on the cheeks. He loves it! He started laughing and proceed to say, "You have 100 boyfriends and I'm one of them! When I'm 18, we're going to get married!" I cracked up! What a little stud! That young man is going to be such a lady killer when he gets older because let me tell you, he has the moves already.
 
But anyhow, it seems that I'm in a 14 year betrothal. I have plenty of time to plan my wedding. Marvel seems to think a superhero theme will suffice. ;] Hah, the things kids come up with, am I right? They never cease to entertain.

I Need Hobbies

Ohhhh my life. It's pretty dull nowadays. Now that it's FREEZING cold outside, I don't like to leave the house much. I get pretty bored hanging out by myself most of the time.

I've been trying to think of ways to occupy my time after work and on my days off. Now that school isn't an option at the moment, I thought maybe I'd take up some hobbies. My gosh, it's hard to think of things I like to do.

I looked into singing lessons because that's the hobby I'm most passionate about, but being I'm in Chicagoland, all possible teachers seem to be broadway experts and cost waaaayyy too much money. That's a no go!

So what to do now? I can't do the things I did in Utah. Camping, hiking, fishing, family, friends, none of that is here! I have no idea what else I can do to get me out of the house. I've entertained the thought of volunteering at an animal shelter, but I'm worried it'll make me miss my dog even more, (if that's even possible) or I'll end up falling in love with a dog there that I can't have. Maybe I should shoot for a second job? I just don't know! I'm out of ideas here. Anybody have suggestions?

I don't really have the type of friends out here that I'm comfortable with just calling up spur of the moment and going to do something. Yes, I hang out with people, but it's planned in advance. So don't worry, I do have a social life, just not a busy one.

I've also still been running, it's just on hold for a little while until I can get a new gym pass. Only doing one thing with my time can be annoying though. Yes, exercising daily is a good thing, but I want to do something else for a change too!

So as you can see, my life is a little dull. I'm ALREADY looking forward to my trip back to Utah. (46 more days!) I'm just at a loss on what to do with my time. Kinda sad when I can't think of things I enjoy doing, huh! So like I said, if anybody has any suggestions, you let me know!
