I'm on a journey. A journey to discover who I really am. If that even makes any sense. The following are a few things I know for sure. I love my family. I love music. My favorite color is pink. True love is my dream. The thing I want most in life is HAPPINESS. I want to feel content with my life. I'm 26 and I'm still not sure exactly what I want to do in the future. I'm determined to live a full life. This blog will only give you a glimpse into who I am. It is a collection of a few thoughts, pictures/quotes for inspiration, and just things I find cute. So join the fun or not, it's up to you.

"I had a child when I was sixteen. I got kicked out of high school because of all the absences. My family and community pretty much wrote me off. But right away I got a job at a sporting goods store. Soon I was able to get a job as a receptionist at a tax company, and they gave me enough responsibilities that I learned how to do taxes. Eventually I learned enough to become an associate. Then I got offered a job at a smaller company, and even though it was a pay cut, they offered me responsibility over all the books— accounts payable, accounts receivable, everything. It was less money but I wanted that experience so I took the risk. And I’m so glad I did, because six months later, the controller of that company left and I was given that position. They told me they couldn’t officially call me the controller because I didn’t have a college degree. So I finished my degree 5 months ago— just to make it official! So after having a child at sixteen, I made it all the way to controller of a company, without even having a college degree. Can you believe that? Honestly, I’ve been waiting to tell that story so long that I told it to a customer service representative on the phone last week. She was nice about it and pretended to care."
