I'm going to be really honest for a minute. I have been having a pretty difficult time lately. I am not adjusting too wonderfully. I miss my friends, I miss my family, I miss school, I miss familiarity. I've had little motivation to do much, mostly because I have nothing to do. I dont know anyone here, really. I spend far too much time on the computer. I should be looking for a job, but that is the last thing I want to do. I have cried to Jordan and started fights with Jordan more than I ever have. I don't like it, at all. I have just felt stuck and out of place.

But today...today has felt better. I have been busy all day. I spent the whole afternoon working for a lady in my ward. Then went straight to watch these kids for another family in my ward. I then came home and made dinner, ate said dinner while talking and laughing with Jordan, Shellie and Trevor.
I am so happy to say that tomorrow I have an interview at Old Navy. (Woohoo! Can you say discount?!)

I know what I did today doesn't seem like much, but what is important to me is I didn't spend all day on the computer or watching Ellen DeGeneres. I had things to do, I had a purpose, I had somewhere to be. I know things will get better, and I know most of it is my own attitude towards life and just needing to be happy.

I felt like sharing this because sometimes when we read other people's blogs we only see the good in their lives and we start to think there is only bad in our own. Well I am here to remind you there is struggle in everyone's life.

I hope you all had a good day. And if you didn't, remember, tomorrow is a new day.

Oh also, my friend Brittany is really cool and you should check out her art card project. CLICK HERE.


  1. Clearly, I wrote a similar post so I have been feeling the same way. Doesn't it suck that working and serving and doing is the answer to feeling better? I used to think it was laying around and eating and watching tv and not having any cares. Well, now we know.

  2. I'm only three hours away if you ever need me!

    Glad you had a good day : )

  3. This is so lovely and genuine. There are many days that I feel exactly like that and it's great to see that I can relate in some way. Thank you for posting this. Hope you have tons of great days ahead!<3

  4. I have days like this all the time. I think you are totally normal. Hope life gets more interesting for you soon.

  5. I know how you feel with this post! When I finished school I felt so alone and like I didn't have a purpose anymore. I still feel that way a lot of the time, but it's slowly getting better as I find things to occupy my free time with. My sister in law lives in Houston (Katy) if you need a friend let me know and I'll hook you up with her!

  6. Hey! Just came across your blog today, and I think it's great! Also, I wanted to tell you that I am also recently married(under 2 years), also recent transplants to Houston (under a year), and I also have struggled (still struggle) with the nothing-to-do, feeling under-employed, missing my friends & family, etc. since moving here.

    Oh and one more thing-- Westheimer is the place to be for thrifting. Buffalo Exchange, the 5 dollar resale shop, and The Cottage Store women's shelter store are all in one little stretch.

    And at the risk of sounding like a weirdo- If you ever find yourself in want of a new friend, you know where to go ;)
