the ups and downs of life

Hello world!

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.

When I was a kid, I thought growing up would be so cool. I’d have all kinds of freedom and I could do anything I wanted whenever I wanted. That was soooooo not true. I currently work in a job that I don’t despise but am not passionate about. I do not have children and don’t know if I can have them or if I want to anymore. I am in a long-term relationship. I would prefer to have the ring on my finger, but he either isn’t ready or something. I’m really not sure. I have two of the most adorable cats ever! I am back in school full-time, hoping to improve my station in life eventually.

My goal is to use my degree to eventually make more money or to win the lottery. Either one of those options works for me. I would love to move to the beach and have warmth year-round!

So now you know a little about me. There will be more to come. 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful day.

One thought on “Hello world!

  1. Hi! Thanks for coming by my place for a visit. I enjoyed reading about you. You are still a young thing compared to most of us out here. I have been married before but am single now and love it. I will never marry again but that is a matter of choice. I play the lottery twice a week. It sure would be nice to win it. I am with you on that one. Good luck with your schooling and your blogging.
