I can’t believe it’s 2015!

So this is Christmas, and what have you done? Another year over, and a new one just begun.

~ John Lennon

Well I for one, am happy to welcome the new year! Not that 2014 was really bad. Just long. I see a lot of people outlining each month of 2014 however I have no posts from January and February 2014 and can’t even remember what went on in those months and I don’t have the energy to go back and look through each month. I might do a post like that later this week, maybe. READ MORE

Car, Cory and other stuff!

Cory and I had a couple of major weights lifted off of us today! I was able to cut my car insurance bill quite a bit. Initially my payment for this month was supposed to come out on the 15th, which would not show till the 18th, which was one day before I get paid. Normally I would just make sure that I saved enough from the last pay and it would be no big deal however this time I did not get paid enough on my last pay (being sick and all) to ensure that the money was there. So I called my insurance company to see if they could delay it by one day. Seems simple enough eh?

Apparently not… they had to put in a request which took a week. I called them about it the week before last to give them plenty of time. They came back to me yesterday saying yes they could do it however it would mean that my payments, which were ridiculous as it was at 246.82 a month, would be 370.24 for December 18th and January 18th, then go back down to around 246.82!  Doing the math if you divide 246.82 in half and then add 246.82 to that half it equals 370.23.

Trapped under ice

Ever wonder what you are doing on the earth? Like, what your purpose in life is? I have been thinking about that a lot lately. I feel so much like something is missing. Like I am not living up to my full potential and that there is something more that I need to do.

I can’t help but wonder what it is. Does everyone think like this? Am I the only one? Sometimes I feel like I just have so many questions. I have been thinking a lot about people in my life that are no longer in my life. I don’t mean ex-boyfriends, ex-friends, or people I have known briefly. I mean my friends and family who have lived and died. READ MORE

Blogging skills

What is the one skill you see in other bloggers that you wish you had?

When I visit a blog for the first time the thing that tends to strike me the most is how often you post. More so then the quality of your posts or what you post about. I enjoy reading about other peoples thoughts and feelings and about their day in general but if you write really infrequently or there is months at a time between posts I tend to loose interest.

A look back into the past

Sometimes to know just how fortunate you are and to know how far you have come over the years can be really empowering. I don’t really use Google + much but I decided the other day to work on my profile a bit and start adding people.

While doing this I clicked on images and there was blogger.com images there. I remembered then that I had a blog on Blogger at one time. It’s not much. Just four posts from 2008/2009. A little less than six years ago. This would have been just a few months before I went to Afghanistan in 2009 and the month I came back. READ MORE
