You better start swimming or you'll sink like a stone

So in defense of the lack of writing I've done on here recently, the times they are a changin'.

Have you ever had one of those moments where you feel like the universe is speaking to you and telling you that you're going in the wrong direction? That happened to me early last week. I've had a lot of doubt about where I'm going in life and I was unwilling to admit it. However, once I did life got really exciting really fast.

I left college and spent a week at home. After a lot of talking and a little crying I decided to leave college at least for now until I figure out what I'm supposed to do with my life. I feel like it's really unfair to ask an 18 year old to choose a college and a major that can define who you are for the other 50 years you spend working. I've never lived any life other than being a student. How do I know what I'm really good at other than school? That's the journey I've started on and I know it will involve some trial and error, but I know I have enough of a support system to help me through it.

And speaking of which, DF and I "ran off" to get married on Valentine's Day. And by run off I mean we got married in his parent's living room by the sweetest Justice of the Peace ever and I baked everyone red velvet cupcakes in the shape of hearts. Well... they were kind of hearts anyway. More on that later.

Hopefully in less than a month Dear Husband and I (wow, that will take some getting used to) will be getting a house together up in the mountains and living happily ever after.
