this time last year i did nothing more than sit on my ass. i was miserable.
now i'm going to the gym five times a week, slowly working on improving myself and my self-esteem.
this time last year i was rarely sober for a day at a time.
i've not had a drink in ten months.
this time last year i was smoking half a pack a day.
i finally quit a few months back.
this time last year i didn't know what the fuck i was doing with my life.
today i'm working towards a degree in psychology and a career in helping people who are mentally ill.
this time last year i was stuck in a manipulative, heartbreaking relationship that i was too scared to leave because i didn't want to be alone.
today i can call one of the most wonderful and beautiful people i know my girlfriend, and the coolest dude in the world my best friend. today i can make a phone call and get coffee or dinner with any of my wonderful, beautiful friends, or i can spend the night alone. i can do what i want to do. i have that chance now.
i'm sorry i haven't been blogging much. i started it as an outlet that i don't need nearly as much anymore, which is sort of unfortunate because i really do enjoy keeping up with everyone i've met this way. i just wanted to share my progress so far--i can't believe how much has changed in the past year. i'm incredibly, incandescently happy.
and i got a bat sweater.
