Some weird happenings around WI lately... Or maybe just my neck of the woods?

So, I haven't posted in a long while. I've been quite busy!!!

First, my fiance and I had a little out and broke up to find our ways back to each other. That was a long couple of months. Then, I realized that my apartment is too small to do 30 DS in and I joined a gym. And now, I am blogging at Barns & Noble because I am supposed to be meeting a partner for a group project... and she's not here! Hopefully she will be soon.

While I wasn't blogging, I made some important life goals for myself.

1. Get married. Brandon loves me no matter how I am and where I am in my life. I AM good enough. Nothing will change that.
2. Lose the 35 lbs that I have gained since high school. Not that I don't like my body! I love the curves these extra lbs have given me, but I can tell that my body doesn't appreciate the extra weight. My frame isn't made to hold this much.
3. Raise my GPA to a 3.0. I took a leadership class this summer, and I ended up becoming more confused about my life than what I already was. However, I was able to network and know that I have so many mentors and people in my life that are willing to take the good with the bad. So, I have currently got a 2.9!! WHooop WHoop! So, my favorite professor Ed encouraged me to reset my goal to achieving a 3.5. That would entitle me to graduate with honors and I would be the second person EVER in my family to graduate from college with honors, and the first person in my family to graduate from college with TWO degrees. What a landmark. I feel that I need to set the bar high. Not only for myself, but also for my future children. I didn't really have any expectations except for the ones that my step-mother set for me. So achieving them will be the ultimate payoff.
4. Personally grow the WCTC DECA chapter by 15%. This is what I am goaled at currently. And, if everyone who signed up at our first meeting continues to be active with the club, I am positive that I am nearly half way there already! SO EXCITED!

If you have never set a goal and completed it, you may not know the feeling, but completing a goal, or exceeding it is the greatest feeling ever!

One day I will pay it forward. I can only hope that I will be able to prove to my professors, who have invested so much time into mentoring, and supporting not only me but my fellow peers, that I was worth it.

On a less academic note, I was promoted to a Sales Leader at a larger store! That was one of my dreams and is keeping me on track with my career goals :) Why am I telling you this, you may ask? Because it comes with perks, (like a raise), and downfalls. Said downfalls include, later nights, stressful quotas, and weird men hitting on you and asking you out... You like how I slid that one in there? I knew you would!

Yesterday, I opened the store and was greeting and selling to customers when a man, not an old man, but older than me, and straight up asked me on a date. OF COURSE it was a day when I didn't wear my engagement ring to work. 

Then, today, I'm walking through the mall and a guy goes, "Hey I like you're jeans", and I politely thank him. Then he goes, "How can I get in those?" Um... EXCUSE ME?! No.

And that's all I have to say today <3
