Been A While

I haven't really had a chance to get on here to post anything here lately, so here's an update.

I took the pre GED test this week, and if I scored high enough they have to get approval from the state for me to take my test early. but once I get that approval paper in my hands, I no longer have to attend classes. All I have to do is set a date for the test. Go me! :)

In my last blog, I mentioned my aunt. Sadly, she passed away on Monday the 18th. Breast Cancer is a nasty thing you guys, I hope none of you have to go through anything like it. For those who may have read and prayed for her and my family, I appreciate it.

So, when I went to the college to start my classes, I was handed back my TABE scores and told that I had scored on the highest level I could on each section. So, I'm getting speedy treatment and will be taking my test hopefully within the next few weeks. Then, I'm college bound.

On another note, my aunt on my dad's side of the family is sick. She has breast cancer, well, she has had it for a while. Needless to say she is not doing so well. If you are religious and reading this, my family could use the prayers...

College anyone?

I have been waiting and waiting for my classes to get my GED to start for two months now and I used to be really excited. Just yesterday I was really excited, but the more I think about it the more I notice that my whole life is staring me in the face. Tomorrow marks the first day of the rest of my life. It's really kinda scary now that I think about it.

Tomorrow, I will find out exactly how long I have to attend the GED classes. Then, I have to start thinking of what I want to attend college for. I used to think that I would enjoy the culinary arts, or cosmetology. Then I think, Theatre would be really cool and fun, then maybe I could do Literature on the side. I'm confused thus far on how to approach this.

I need help. :/

The First Entry

Well, this is really my first time actually doing a Blog, and I hope I can stick to it. Because as you can see, this IS a life going nowhere fast. Or at least it can sometimes feel that way.

Take it from my point of view. I am 17 years old, starting classes to get my GED on Thursday. (Reasons for quitting school in the first place will be withheld at the present moment in time.) Depending on how high I scored on the placement test I had to take in order to even get into the classes will determine how long I have to attend, but because the world today says 17 years old is too young of an age for me to be making my own decisions, I have to take a mandatory 12 hours of classes. But, from what I got from the orientation, it could be until July before I could even take my test. *sigh* But, this is something I need to do. I have plans and dreams for myself that wont be accomplished or even considered until it is done.

I've been out of high school for for 3 months now. I don't want to stick to the usual pattern of dropouts who go for years without trying or maybe even don't take a step towards their future at all. Let this be a testament to the people who didn't drop out because they wanted to. Let this be a testament to those who are really trying.

Then there is the other ever present issue on my mind. This is a new year. Why not start with a New Years Resolution?

Lose the damn weight already! --> That's mine. I have been overweight probably most of my life. And, well, though I am comfortable with myself, I still feel like life would be better without the extra baggage I carry around on my body every day. I'm sure there are plenty of other women out there who feel the same way. So let's do something about it! Hundreds of other people have, so why can't we?

Starting at 226.2 lbs, let's see what I can do. :)

Today marks a new beginning for me... I hope I get it right this time.
