Stress and happiness update.

I wish I blogged more so I wouldn't be stressing over how to even write this post. I'm still overwhelmed with school and work. I still barely have time for myself. However, things are starting to look up and it's hard not to be happy lately.

About two or more months ago I completely gave up dating. I was so sick of hearing how I'm too busy. I was so sick of being lied to or mistreated. I was completely okay with not wasting my time with unneeded distractions. 

Then on my first day of class, I text one of my best friends telling her I was going to marry this guy in my class. I obviously assumed I'd never have the courage to speak to him. Every time he makes a statement during our family dynamics class discussions, every girl in the room instantly light up. An insanely attractive guy who completely respects women, it's clear I'm not the only one in that class not used to that combination.




Fast forward to two Sunday ago.. We went on our first date. It was honestly the best date I've ever been on. I've never been treated so well. All of the things that I've wanted from guys in the past that made them tell me I expect too much, he did. It was just such a nice change to feel happy and comfortable. 

We also went out this past Saturday. He was able to meet my mom and she completely approved. Although we just got food a few drinks and talked for hours, I completely enjoyed myself. I'm really looking forward to being able to spend more time with someone who is so motivating and positive. It's also been nice to have someone who understands my crazy schedule firsthand. 

So it might be the only time that I enjoy having the same class twice a week. It also might be the only time that I really don't enjoy how quickly my 10 week classes are going by. I'm not rushing anything, I'm just enjoying my happiness. I'm pretty damn sure I completely deserve this. 

I still want to be able to get back into blogging, it's been a stressful time and I plan on next quarter taking off a realistic amount of time opposed to trying to please everyone and having to really think hard about if I ate or if I slept more than 2 hours. My comeback will slowly happen.
