My new direction

My life has been speeding toward a career, education, and general awesomeness ever since I cognitively realized I could do anything I wanted to. That career was military, the education was from the military, and the general awesomeness was because I would be in the military. I had no doubts that this would be my life, until I raced someone last June. I met the love of my life! And I didn't just meet him. I saw him driving and fell in love before we even pulled off the road and started talking. And who can blame me? Look how cute he is!

So going to school in Georgia was a fight, but I loved it. I loved the military lifestyle mixed with a crazy college experience. But living apart from my sweet heart was hard, and with all of the challenges that have come from Georgia Tech and my scholarship, I've decided not to go back. I'm not relieved. I'm giving up my dream! But I know I'm giving it up for something better. So now my life is taking on a whole new direction. I've started one life, found my soul mate, changed all of my life goals, moved across the country, been in the military, got a motorcycle, and I'm not even 20 years old yet. Now I'm starting over, applying to the local University, and I'm going into something I've always enjoyed as a hobby. I'll be studying linguistics, maybe majoring in Chinese or Spanish or both. Who knows? That right there is terrifying and thrilling for me, because I've ALWAYS had a plan that covered everything for at least thirty years. Now I don't. But I do know one thing. I have the love of my life, and my family. 
So, there's my decision. I won't go into the nitty gritty of it all, just know that I'm on the road to being happy with everything I have, trusting the Lord, and being excited for my new future. Wish me luck! Hopefully there will be more posts to come about how things are shaping up. Hope you are doing well.
