This post isn't going to be about some deep thought I had today...just more so an update to all my friends and supporters. Stuff I really am excited about!
So for the past month or so I have been busy trying to get my life on track. I found a school I really like and I am excited and proud to say I start school August 2nd!!! I found an esthetician program that I can take. The school is only about 15-20 minutes away from my apartment. I've heard a lot of good things about this cosmetology school, and I am so ready to do something I have been talking about for a long time. For those of you who don't know what an esthetician is, it's skin care. Waxing, facials, and make up. I can't wait!! I think I am really going to like it and for the first time in a while, I genuinely feel good about something. I feel like I have goals and that my life will start to have more meaning than just being a widow. I'm proud of myself. 7 months after my husband was killed, I am taking control of my life, and I really think I am going in the right direction. I did it all by myself.. and I am proud of how independent I have become. I think Remi and I are going to be just fine. I feel so good about this.
Exciting update number 2!! My brother is coming for a visit! He will be here Sunday night for an entire week. This will be his first time to Cali and he's been wanting to come out for a visit ever since I have lived here. I know he's going to love it and will fit right in. Sometimes I think my brother would fit in more here than I do! I love California and I am happy and VERY grateful to have the chance to live here, but I really do feel like my brother is meant for a place like this. This was my graduation/birthday present to him. So whatever he wants to do or see while he's here, we will do it!! I want him to enjoy himself and have the time of his life. I am excited to show him my life and what I have been doing. What I see everyday and where my life has been for the past 2 years. Alex is the first person out of my family to come for a visit, and I can hardly wait!! I will be sure to post pictures after his visit.
My exciting update number 3 isn't that exciting. haha. But I am a blonde again. Yes, my hair makes me that happy. I haven't been blonde for a few years, even though it is my natural hair color. Chad always liked my hair dark so I left it that way for a while. I liked it to, but I was ready for a changed. I feel like "Katie" again. The blonde hair, blue-eyed, freckled face Katie. It's the Katie Chad met and deep down that's who I really am. Maybe I am looking to far into this hair thing...haha. I'm thinking too much, surprise surprise!
I really hope everyone is enjoying their summer as much as I am. I'm anxious to get school started and make something out of myself. In 5 months, you can call me the skin lady. :)
