I received my Texas State acceptance letter on Sunday, or well I got it out of the mail on Sunday, I'm doubting it was actually delivered on Sunday. I actually sat there in the car at the mailbox and opened it, I was so excited, I just knew that's what it had to be. After leaving UH last semester, I really felt like I was standing on a cliff, I really had no direction. I just needed that security that I belonged to something, somewhere, and now I have it back again and I couldn't be happier. I'm so very excited. I really do love it over there and I really do think it is the best thing for me to leave Houston for a little while, or maybe for good, and start my own story somewhere else. I'm eager to dance up the hill country, it's going to be a blast.
I know it took me a lot longer to get to this point then most everybody else I know, but I think I needed the extra time, a few years ago I would have never been brave enough to make such a daring move, through all the hardships I've had to go through, I really think they have made me a stronger person and have lead me to the person I am today. When I graduated from high school I was still such a child, I've grown up a lot in the last year and I know I'll grow up even more when I move off on my own in January. I'm going up with Roxanne at the end of October, she is thinking about transferring up too. =)
I had my final post-op appointment for my surgery on Tuesday, can't believe its over. I remember back in March when I scheduled the surgery and I was dreading the 4 month wait, then before I knew it the date was here and I had my lovely two week recovery of bruises, bandages, and bad hair. Now, it's all over with, I'm left with the cutest little nose I could've ever wanted. It was kind of sad walking out of that office, that place really did change my life. It's amazing how such a silly little thing like a bump in your nose will conceal the person you really are inside. I know a lot of people were against the whole thing and didn't want me to go through with it, but it was a decision I made all on my own and to this day I stand by it being one of the best decisions of my entire life (lets not lie, I do look a lot better, it's okay, we can be honest about it).
Plato's stuff is going good, whipping that store into shape, everything looks really clean and organized, it's coming along. We are having our giant semi annual grab bag sale this Saturday, going to be crazy!
My solo is also near completition, I need to find a way to tie everything together better, but it is looking nice. I like the storyline I have going for it, nervous though, it's a solo after all.
