Years Ago Today

Lovelies it's been a busy week... 
Today's post is going to be about what I did on this day January 21st in 2010. 
I write in journals so I can time travel kinda haha...
Thursday January 21, 2010
Time evades me. Brie and I were talking tonight on Facebook, and I've decided to sue the economy... haha long story. I painted for three hours today and it was amazing. I dropped my math class, the teacher wasn't good, and I replaced it with government. It seems like it will be easy. I went to that class yesterday and surprise! Jenny, my old friend and past coworker, was in that class which is awesome! She sat by me and we caught up! I've missed her. I'm glad we have a class together.
Jenny is going into elementary ed too. She said everyone she knows and all of her family keep telling her she's crazy and shouldn't. They say she won't make enough money. She's going to do it though because she loves it and money isn't everything. Plus she said she's going to move and she'll make a decent living. That's the same situation as me. That talk really helped me realize how true that is. You should go into a career you'll love. That's what matters. You must be passionate about what you do.
It's awesome because I have friends in all of my classes. There's... Brooke in painting, Hannah in film, Jenny in government, Tyson in biology, Chelsi in art, and all of the kids in my bio lab are nice. My schedule is incredibly busy and takes up all my time pretty much. It's overloaded, but I love it.
Jordan (little sister) got a dog today. I can't believe mom let her. Mom truly spoils her the most. Mom wouldn't let McHale and I have animals or go on American Heritage or get only a slap on the wrist for stealing her brand new car without a license (which we never did but we got in trouble for silly things!). Two words=favorite child. Jordan now has a purebred shih tzu name Kiya. Kiya is adorable though.
