The boyfriend

Rich is great : ) He's one of the best things to walk into my life. We've been together for almost 11 months. Most random date has been going to a roller derby. Most impromptu thing we've done was run through the sprinklers on the soccer field late at night together. Rich is going to Marquette Law School in the fall! I'm so proud of him! Maybe add him to your prayer list. I know he could use it.

I'm getting too old for this . . .

Oh my goodness this year has been a whirlwind. I've been busy with planning events, working steadily on getting my political science degree at Stritch, and trying to balance a social life (or lack thereof). I ended up running a human trafficking awareness week in February. I had three separate events and had over 130 people involved in this! It truly was a great project. We definitely raised awareness.

I just turned 20 last month. For those of you in your twenties, I'm sure you've realized that being there at this age is turning point. I've realized that I've got so much to do , to set my life in order in the next couple of years. I feel like I don't know enough and that I have so much to learn. As I go through school, I realize I'm only scratching the surface of knowledge. I'm worried about finding my path and being able to make a living for myself.

I'm torn between going to law school, going to grad school to get a MA in international affairs, or doing a joint degree in one of those. I still love to talk to people and raise some money for a good cause, but I'm not sure what I should do as a career. I'm not sure if I'm going to be studying in Wisconsin for my higher education possibly on the east coast & may be working in D.C. after. We'll see :)

Keep on wishing & dreaming

I love to dream up big projects or dream about some crazy life where I get to take long vacations to exotic or far away places. Next spring, I'm taking the first step making these overseas adventures come true. I'm going to study abroad in Chester, ENGLAND!

I'm so excited. I'm going to miss everybody so much. Maybe England can entice you to visit me hahaha I can't wait to get over there and start my world travel adventure. I hope to be able to afford to visit Germany, France, Spain, and Italy! I'm just so excited. We'll have to have the Christmas party before the new year otherwise I won't be able to see you lovely ladies until June. We have to step while it gone or I may cry.

I was thinking about setting up a blog, a deviant art page for pictures, and secret board on Pinterest for all the foreign hot men I'll come into contact with (or creep on) because I know I've got some lovely ladies single or not who might want some nice eye candy! Sound good? Haha
