The year of 2015 is going to definitely be a life-changing year for me. I’ll be a junior in college and I also will be closer to one day getting my masters in ABA. Or possible becoming a Special Education to be a teacher, but we will see. At least I’m sticking to what I want to do for the rest of my life, that’s never changed! Haha.
Well, as it’s only January, I have a lot of things on my mind. I’ve already made it clear how much of an indecisive person I am, but this will only make it more clear for all of you! Haha. Sadly, (or not so sadly) I have the mind frame of if you are unhappy, change what is making you unhappy.
Well, there’s been a lot on my mind since I’ve moved to the Chicago burbs… Am I happy? Yes, in different ways than I thought I would be. I am happy that I am staying focused on school and my career. Are there other parts of my life that I am unhappy about?
A little bit, yes.
After school is over in April, I have a lot of decision-making to do. I’ll be in Peru for a few months in the summer and I’m hoping that will help me decide what I want to do once I come back.
Which is leading me to…
Do I want to stay in the Chicago suburbs? Honestly, not so much. Maybe if I had more friends and a close-knit group around me. I’m not really sure what is giving me this unsatisfied feeling. I do not regret moving to the Chicago suburbs because it helped me grow as a person. I definitely do not want to go back to St. Louis, (but who knows I might change my mind on that too?) Haha. So what are my options and what I REALLY want to do?
After living in Peru, I can come back to the Chicago suburbs and finish school for another 2 years.
I can actually move IN the city of Chicago and transfer schools. I think I would be much happier actually living in the city, as opposed to living in the suburbs. Didn’t realize how far I was from the city, after all.. Haha.
This is kind of a big one, but I’m pretty excited about this one. My sister and her husband are moving to Colorado in about two months and they offered to have me come with. I miss living with them terribly and I actually cried in my car on the way to Chicago after leaving them. It was a lot more upsetting than I thought it would be. Living with them gave me a sense of living in a close-knit family home.
I’ve made plans to go to Colorado for my spring break instead of going to Canada. I will testing the waters and seeing if I like it there. I’ll also be helping my sister and brother-in-law move most likely. I also plan on visiting Colorado Mesa University, so we will see.
Yep, I’m extremely indecisive, but that’s what your 20’s are about, right? I’m finding out what I like/don’t like, what makes me happy/unhappy, and although my journey is a bit rocky at times, I’m enjoying every second. I am basically choosing between Chicago city living and Colorado country livin’.
What are your plans for the upcoming year? Anything exciting or life-changing in mind?
