To say that I am still here and kickin’! Life in Montana is very laidback so far. It will be a year since I came out here this coming Christmas season. A year sure does fly by when you’re
having fun working a lot.
My 24th birthday is also around the corner (Oct. 17th) and I couldn’t be more excited. I always remind my friends and cousins that we’re another year closer to 30! They always give me the same groans about how they don’t need to be reminded, but I do it anyway 🙂
I’ve since stopped working at the ski resort here and am now a caregiver at a senior living place. It’s a really nice job and it gives me more insight into how the aging process affects each individual differently. I can see myself working and living here for the few years until I decide on where I want to officially settle down and start my life. Even though I am living it right now, there are still other aspects that I want added into it. A house and a family of my own are the two major ones so far.
Aside from living and working and working and living, I am trying to bring more happiness into my life. Whether I accomplish that by spoiling myself with a shopping trip or taking a quiet, morning walk by a neighboring pond, happiness is something that I want more of. I don’t want to get into a routine where I’ll find myself bored when there are plenty of options/activities for me to choose from.
I guess you can say that self-happiness and self-love are the two things I am currently working on. Hopefully I can see them manifest themselves into me soon.
