Last night, my friend from UT came over, and was talking about how jealous she was of how I was living life. I wondered how is she so jealous when she goes to such a great college and is living the college life, while I am not. She explained to me that I am (about to be) 20, living in a luxury $1,300/mo apartment with my significant other, while we both have great jobs, working towards our future goals together, with puppies. Apparently, this is something many young adult want. I was relieved that this was coming from a person going to a top-notch university, because I thought I was missing that step in life. Don’t get me wrong, I still go to school full-time (online though, which is amazing), while running my own business (I’ll save this for another post), being “wifey” material, and a [dog] mom.
I am glad someone said this to me, because I feel like I missed a part of my life by not going to university. I have pushed flight school back another year, because I am now focusing on getting my accounting bachelors degree by May 2019, instead of May 2020 (the year I was supposed to graduate). I am bummed that I pushed flying back another year, but I want to get my B.S. really fast, and then get through flying really fast. I still have such a long and happy life ahead of me, so 1 more year wouldn’t hurt. Most people wonder why I am getting a degree outside of flying, and it’s simple: I want to have a back-up plan. I have always wanted my own business, and I want a MBA, CPA, and I want to be a Captain B737 for United. I love learning and I want to always have open doors.
My life at home is amazing. I come home everyday to my 2 children (Aussiedors) and my loving and supportive boyfriend. I spoil the living daylights out of my pups, and my life at home revolves around them. I schedule my day on what I want to do with them, whether that is going to the dog-park or going on a hike. Don’t worry, Mason gets a lot of attention too. We are obsessed with The Good Wife (right now), and we make sure to make time for that everyday, if our schedules allow it. I love to cook, especially in our new Instant Pot. Surprisingly, my apartment is spotless 95% of the time, because I hate when things I own are messy (my mom is still shocked by this). These are on my days off, but I usually am free from 9am-4pm, and again from 7pm to 7am, unless I take more jobs. The days I work, I am home with my pups all day, while doing school-work, and trying to better myself and family. I also try to visit my family (they live 8 mins away from me) whenever I can, which is usually 5 times a week. They are our best friends and biggest supporters.
Mason and I are actually training for a half marathon that is towards the end of 2018, and our first 5k race is Jan 13, and we are so stoked! I wanted a hobby, and I tried Crossfit which is AMAZING, but my business started taking off and my box’s schedule didn’t line-up with mine. My weakest point in Crossfit was running, and I HATED it. I started running after I quit Crossfit, so I can be better when I will be able to go back to doing Crossfit. I am still not the biggest fan of running, because I have bad stamina, but as it gets better, I like running more.
I guess I am not like every other young adult. I do NOT like to drink or party. I am usually in bed by 9pm every night. I love to read, crochet, study, and every minute of everyday I am thinking about my future and what I need to do now to better myself.
