Hey Ya’ll! Soo…. yeah… It’s been over TWO months since I last blogged. I don’t know what it is. Or why I haven’t blogged.
I guess I’m just trying to figure out a few things. Since my last post a few things have happened.
I did not get accepted into Teach For America. Sad I know. But I still think it’s a really great organization doing great things across the country. I just wasn’t right for them.
That’s not going to stop me though. I realized through all my work for their interview that I really want to be a teacher. So I’m going back to school. That’s right- I just graduated from college, and now I want to go back. Hopefully, I will be getting my Master’s degree in Family and Consumer Science Education in 2-3 years.
I also quit my job and moved with my parents. They just needed a change, so we packed up our cars and headed out to Michigan to live with my Aunt, Uncle, and Grandma until my mom found a job/house. And she did! We will be moving to Small Town Indiana, in 2-3 weeks. It’s so much fun being around my cousins and their small children! It’s never dull. Or quiet, for that matter.
In August, I will be heading down south for an internship on an Alpaca farm (I know what your thinking- Whaaatt?? ) But I’ll be doing a lot of baking for the farmers market and hanging out with Alpacas- which If you knew me personally, is a dream come true.
And Lastly- my stomach has been cranky lately. Like for the past few months lately. Sometimes it hurts so bad when I’m sleeping it’ll wake me up. So I’ve decided to strip a lot of common stomach-upsetters from my diet for three weeks and slowly add them back in one at a time.
These things include:
Alcohol, Caffeine, eggs, dairy, gluten, yeast, peanuts, fruit juices, mushrooms, corn, tomatoes, citrusy- fruits, chocolate (sooooo hard!) soy, sugar, and processed foods. This whole process will take almost 3 months. ugghh. It’s difficult finding things to eat sometimes- but I’m being creative.
This is a wordy post, I know. : ( But, I’ll be back tomorrow (I promise!) with some pictures, and then after that hopefully a glance into the foods I can eat!
Random Question of the Day: Although I’m not ready to make the leap to veganism just yet, I do take being a vegetarian pretty seriously. Recently, I’ve been going through all my cosmetics and making sure that they aren’t tested on animals. Do any of ya’ll have a recommendation for sunscreen? Badger brand always seems to come up under really good sunscreens and it’s not tested on animals, but a 2.6 oz tube is $16!!!! That’s cray-cray. So, if you know of any, I’d love to hear! (p.s.- I’m a super sunburn prone ginger. SPF 10 won’t cut it for me. Sadface.)
