how have you changed in the past year?

now i have changes by david bowie stuck in my head.



last year i was working out and exercising regularly. i had managed to lose 20 lbs and i was loving my new routine. i was wanting it to never end.

last year i didn’t have my period for two whole months. pregnancy tests came back negative, so i went to the lady doc and had them do a legit pregnancy test. still negative. my hormones were naturally changing in my body due to my new routine, so there were no concerns.

last year i decided to get back on birth control so that i wouldn’t have children yet, due to my husband still in college. when i first started taking birth control in my late teens, it had taken me a few different tries to find a birth control that didn’t mess with my system too badly (some made me slightly depressed, some gave me headaches everyday).

last year my doctor decided that since i hadn’t had my period, i should take a stronger medication to kick start my period.

last year i went from “normal” to severely depressed and wanting to die. in a week and a half.

needless to say, i have long since stopped taking that horrid medication. it’s taken me a while to get back to “normal” (ha, me? normal?) but i feel like i am myself again.

 in the last year i know, for a fact, that i am happier.

i had a birthday, so my age changed! i am so much older and WAY more mature now.

i would also like to think that i have come to know myself a little more.  i think i figured out a little more of what i want in life and what makes me happy.

i feel like i have gotten better at household duties. like cleaning and laundry and stuff. i was pretty bad at it when i first got married. (you mean my mom can’t still do my laundry and cook me food?)

i have started to not be so hard on myself. i have started trying new things more often. i have become more motivated. i have learned a lot of things.

how have you changed this last year? have you stopped being so hard on yourself? cause you should…

DAY TWENTY-FIVE: am i the only one?

grab a guest post! swap blogs with someone, and share about anything. 🙂

i completely forgot this prompt was coming. so i didn’t get to swap with anyone today…it just didn’t happen. i have been up to my ears in unpacking and work and things that keep happening. why do things keep happening?! oh wait, that’s life.

life happens

oh well…

today i am going to ask a series of questions and you are going to answer them. in your head, out load, typed below. whatever you want.

no it’s not graded. it’ll be fun i promise! fun for me to see if i am the only one or not. and hopefully i’m not…that would make me feel better.

am i the only one who goes as long as possible without washing their hair?

it’s really not good to wash your hair everyday you know…i’ll wash it tomorrow…maybe.

am i the only one who likes to wear workout clothes because they are comfy?

not because you are working out? cleaning is like a workout right? what about sitting on the couch and watching netflix?…no?

am i the only one who can eat peanut butter/nutella off of a spoon?

besides my mom because i know she does this too. maybe that’s why i do it, haha.

am i the only one who finds it ridiculously hard to write posts?

what do i even write about? is it even interesting?

am i the only one who locks their car again after you’ve walked away because you can’t remember if you locked it?

i just can’t remember!

am i the only one who actually wants to do a blog swap?

let’s do one together! let me know if you wanna!

any questions you want to ask? i’m sure you aren’t the only one who does.
