If your reading this, and know anything about me, you know that things in my life the past few years haven't been the best. Around age 15 I was partying all the time and although I did have some amazing times that I wouldn't trade for the world, I got into a lot of trouble. That lead to me getting kicked out around 17. I bounced around, lived with friends, when friends ran out I moved in with someone I met on myspace, when that didn't work out I moved in with my Grandmother...and then it started.
While living with my Grandmother I became closer to her than anyone in my family. She truly is my best friend. I met an amazing man (my boyfriend) who was friends with the person that lived close by. And we just hit it off. I just turned 18 at the time (I'm now 20) In that time things haven't been the best, but we both have learned a lot. We found a religion that we both strongly agree with although it's not the most popular one. After him bouncing from place to place, we finally got our own place in November. Him and his ex finally are getting along which makes it better for his children (which he now sees every other weekend-and sometimes more)....and we have just came a long way.
Now here comes the bad news.
We were so happy to get this dive of an apartment that we're living in now. We almost lost it the second month here. I lost my job a week before Christmas, and have been on unemployment ever since. He also is getting unemployment-due to there just simply isn't any work. We were so broke that we didn't have any food. His car needed some work before it could get a sticker, but we didn't have the money to fix it, so in the parking lot it still sits. My car made it to March, and then the same thing happened. We decided that we didn't like where our lives were going so we thought that it would be a good idea to go back to school. He being the computer geek that he is, thought of a major...something with computer graphics? Me, my major was interior design. We had people helping us out-and then we got the news, the people that were helping us out with internet so we could go back to school online didn't want to help us anymore, gave us a few hours notice and then we were shut off.
Here's the good news.
We have our own phone and internet. Although we both had to drop out, we have plans of going back to school. We're getting a bigger and better place in my home town of Lisbon Falls, Maine, so he'll be closer to his kids. I'm selling my car, so we don't have to worry about spending money on both, and with the money that I get from my car we plan to fix his car, and save for our new place which we should be moving into by Christmas (there is a waiting list). Although the job market sucks up here, we're still looking for jobs and not giving up. One of my friends from Norway might be coming back to the states this year for a visit and I haven't seen here since the day after I graduated high school. I got a cat, Sydnie, for my birthday to help cheer me up when I need it. And although I've has some "mental health" issues this past year, I have noticed them and know what I have to do about it-so that is getting taken care of in time.
There really isn't much to say except this all pretty much happened in a month. Just remember whoever is reading this, that everything does happen for a reason, and God (or Goddess) doesn't throw anything your way that you can't handle. So now reading my deal on karma, what do you think? Is it for real?
