24 and counting... [Jan. 18th, 2009|12:53 pm]
[Current Location |freezing living room in whitefish bay...]
[Current Mood |contemplativecontemplative]
[Current Music |heater trying to keep up...]

I'm fairly certain no one reads these journals anymore, which is the exact reason why I feel like I should begin writing again.

I turned twenty-four a month ago and am still unsure how I feel about it. I've always been a big dreamer- and my challenge, in turn, has always been actually living those dreams. I think a lot, and talk a lot...but I don't really DO a lot. I thought that by 24, I'd somehow be further in life than where I currently am. I'm not even sure by which standards I'm measuring my life, but it feels as if I'm falling behind. Again. Every few years or so, I get the distinct feeling that I've got much to catch up on. Right now, it seems as if the marriage/baby race is going full speed everywhere around me. It doesn't necessarily bother me in my day-to-day life, it'll just sneak up on my occasionally- and then all of a sudden, I feel as if every direction I look, people are married or popping out kids right and left. There may be a slight exaggeration to that, but when looking at it from this sort of viewpoint, it's hard not to slightly exaggerate:)

A few months ago, Heather and I had breakfast at a really amazing pancake house-place downtown (I cannot for the life of me remember what it's called...if I did, the millions of people who (don't) read this, would probably know what I'm talking about...). Anyway, it was during that meal when I really started to think that much of my emotional and relationship baggage stemmed from my relationship with Mark. I can't talk about this with my friends, really, since it was almost six years ago. Six whole years ago...(even just typing that out is weird...feels much closer). I really truly believed with my whole heart that Mark and I would be together forever, that we would be married and have this amazing life together with travel and kids and...everything. These past few sentences are a mere drop in the virtual bucket of my history with Mark, but for length purposes, I will continue. A few days after that breakfast, I began communicating with Chad. We emailed for about a month before we went on our first actual date. I called my mom (okay, and several other people:) right after that date and told them I had met the man I'm going to marry. Again, I really truly believed this. Things with Chad were awesome- he was, and is, an amazing Christian man- who I felt did care very much about me. But then I don't know really what happened. And a month later, I still really don't. I will not keep begging for closure, as desperately as I want and need it. Somehow I've fallen again. I'm very familiar with this place and feeling in my life. And I don't like being here. It feels good in the moment, but in the many moments after, it feels awful. I knowingly make bad choices, which I know aren't right for me or where I want to be in my life...and yet, I continue right on. Marching to a beat that is all too similar to places I have only recently left. Where is it that I am being called to? I joke that I would love a literal sign from God...but really, I would love a literal sign from God. I feel a call...to something. I just don't know what. To people. To love. Therefore, I suppose, to love people. But in what regard? Of the few things I know about myself for certain, I know that I love people, that I have compassion and a heart for their stories and backgrounds and differences. I love to learn. And read. And be creative. Where all those roads meet, I am unsure.

Also, I recently got bangs. I'm also not sure how I feel about those.

vma disappointment [Sep. 7th, 2008|10:33 pm]
[Current Location |living room couch]
[Current Mood |thirstythirsty]
[Current Music |sergio mendes]

Okay, so this post really has nothing whatsoever to do with the VMAs, expect for the fact that I was disappointed in them....and now I am absolutely certain that I am old. Ah, such is life.

This past weekend has been fabulous--I finally had off of work and could do as I pleased for an entire two days...FREEDOM! Friday after work I went with Adam, Abby and Jimmy to see Polydream at Shank Hall. Abby knew the lead singer from college and has seen them several times before--overall, it was a nice show. I'm always in the market for new music, so, in the very least, I did get some new music into my head. I bought a couple of their songs on iTunes today...if you check them out, make sure to listen to "Luster" and "Montana", which are their strongest songs, in my opinion.
Sidenote: I'm not even really sure if anyone is still involved, writing and/or reading livejournals. I know that I keep up with a few of the journals, but there's nowhere near as many people writing as there used to be. I feel pretty confident in saying that no one will probably ever see this or any of my future entries.

On Saturday I went to Middleton to watch Viktor in his very first volleyball tournament of his high school career. It was kind of strange because to me he'll always be that little boy wearing a Badgers sweatsuit when he got off the airplane...not a highschooler who's taller than me.....I was so proud of him- he really loves volleyball and you could tell he was having a good time. I think he has a good skill level to begin with and has a lot of room for growth in the next three years. I'm glad he found a place where it seems he'll fit in, especially since he's going to a high school that none of his friends from grade school are going to and has to begin all over again. I feel like that's how my high school experience started. Even though I knew a lot of the people at Milwaukee Lutheran and had gone to grade school with them, I was not friends with them, really. My three good friends from grade school all went to different schools and starting that first day at ML was absolutely terrifying. If it hadn't been for cross country, which started practicing two weeks before school started, I would have been completely alone. Luckily, I met Abby and the rest is history:)

Saturday night Heather and I went to the Brewer game since it was Hispanic night and Heather is Hispanic and I wish I was...so all signs pointed towards a great night:) We tailgated with Pat and Paul, which was fun albeit a little awkward, since I hadn't seen Pat in a loooooong time. Plus, they grilled so we didn't have to- which was a huge upside since I am extremely wary of all hot metal surfaces since my unfortunate run-in with that Harley two weekends ago. I had to tell the embarassing Harley moment to Paul and Pat since they saw my lovely bandaged leg and wondered what happened. If something really cool had happened, I would have no problem telling the story..."Oh this burn? Well, I actually got it when I saw this Harley taking a corner too tightly with a baby on the backseat and I ran up just in time to snatch the infant from plummeting to its death, only to be trapped under the enormous death-vehicle and the leather-clad biker that was riding it. In the process of my heroic life-saving endeavor, my right calf became severely burned from the exhaust pipe as I struggled to hold onto the baby and lift the Harley and said biker off of me. So really, tis just a battlewould which speaks to my selfless act." HOWEVER....the story is nowhere nearly as interesting as the aforementioned...so although it may make for a good lil chuckle, I only succeed in making whoever's listening think that I am a complete and utter fool. Which, in that moment, I was- but I don't want to tell stories to highlight that fact:) What's that saying....stay silent and let people think you're a fool, rather than open your mouth and remove all doubt? Something like that...

Life is a funny think most of the time. I have a feeling that this week will bring some interesting changes into my life. At least I hope so. Because I am floundering in a sea of potential monatany....which only worsens with the oncoming cold. I need a fun new hobby. That just might do the trick.

a lot like life.... [Jul. 7th, 2008|04:12 pm]
[Current Location |parent's house]

[Current Music |nada]

so.....much has happened in my life that i haven't written about in a loooooong time. i graduated last year, and assumed my life would happen speedily. alas, it has not. i am nowhere even near where i thought i would be...then again, i guess i never really knew (and still don't know) what i wanted to do. still trying to figure that out. it's been unbelievably nice to have a break from theatre for this year. but now that it's been a year since i've been in school and i feel as if i should be doing something new, heading somewhere new..etc...working at walgreens is okay; i mean, it pays the bills and i'm able to pay off more loans/debt than i thought i would be able to...BUT (there's the giant question mark) i'm not sure if i can keep it up. if you've never worked retail, it's hard to explain, but my job is literally exhausting. everyday is running around, climbing, stocking, unloading, being happy and nice so customers like you...keeping up this charade is like one giant show, day in, day out. so maybe i am closer to theatre than i thought:) i know this entry is a huge ramble-cluster...but there are so many things in my brain right now...and i finally have a computer to write, instead of painstakingly typing entries on my phone. what to do, what to do.....always the question.....
