Here are the options I’m seriously considering. So, I graduate sometime in June and then this is what is going to happen based on chronological order of what would need to get done. I have something for each time period so if one falls through I move on to the next in line!

-CELTA course in Moscow (June-July) and then a teaching contract after completion

-fly home, apply to teach in Korea, sign contract beginning of August

-home, Americorps NCCC, don’t find out if you got in until late August

-home, University of Cape Town for grad school in January

As you can tell by all my plans I’m quite nervous about what I’m going to be doing. I would love to teach, but I’m kind of nervous about it. I know that after doing a course/training that I would be fine, it’s just the whole ‘growing’ experience of actually doing it that gets me. I feel like it would make up for the last 3 years of not being pushed at all though.

Russia would be incredible and then I could still be at least somewhat close to the boyf. Ah I’m just so confused about life at the moment.

I think this 1,000 a day is going to go well. For some reason I don’t get many results when I work out in regards to weight loss. Sure, I like to tone up but to lose I really need to watch what goes into my mouth in the first place.

Things a little bit off with the boyf and I ever since I got mad about the living situation. I just really don’t even know what to do anymore. I want to live alone. He keeps making these comments that just make me feel like crap about things that I have no control over.

Anyway, I hope you lovelies are doing well.

I feel like I’m losing so much weight because I’ve been so miserable since getting back from Miami. I’m training for a half marathon and I’ve gotten shin splints out of nowhere. My step-sisters and their kids are staying here at my parents house and it’s driving me insane. I need my space and annoying, spoiled toddlers definitely don’t help that.

On top of all that crap, I’ve found out that the house in London has one small bedroom that someone has to take. I had a mental breakdown last year from having to stay in a room that was the size of my closet here at home. Since I was the last to arrive last year and didn’t get any say and it looks like that’s going to happen again. I thought living with him would be different, but this is honestly the same old bullshit. If only London weren’t so expensive so that I could live on my own.

Anyway, I’m guessing that I’m about 4lbs away from my goal weight now which is one positive thing I guess.

Luke & I found some cheap tickets to Miami so we flew down on the spur of the moment. I bought a bunch of beauty stuff from duty free so I’ll have to do some reviews when I get back.

As you can see, I’m not really particular about how I store my jewelry. I just use an old, rectangular Jo Malone box and toss everything in. I always carry it on with me because I don’t want to lose it and that way it doesn’t get jangled about, either.

Oh, and I’m working on a Seychelles post since a bunch of you seemed interested, but I’m having a hard time finding a way to photograph boots…
