Hello again, co-creators! I've been neglecting my CCOR blog but there's not been much to report on. Unfortunately, I've caved once or twice in the past two weeks to my own negativity, but I firmly believe it's getting better. I find it easier and easier to cope with my negative/angry outbursts and I'm doing my best to look for the silver lining in every cloud.
The only real update I have is relative to my future education, and it's massive. For the past three years I firmly believed that I failed my English 30-1 course in highschool - the only course I needed to get into ACAD (Alberta College of Art & Design). For the first time since I graduated, I actually saw my marks in the flesh. All this time I've been sitting on a 76% when I only needed 60% for acceptance. I kept putting it off because I was so sure that I'd need to upgrade my highschool education, which I didn't have the time or money to do. Imagine that...
Now, I can actually put a plan into motion to work and start saving up for school. I spoke to my dad recently and he's promised to help me with tuition when I do apply, which I didn't ask for. He's had my back ever since I moved out of my mother's house and I'm so grateful for his help; I certainly would not be where I am today if not for him. <3 All I need to do now is find a second job to supplement my income. I feel like I can finally start making some progress in my life.
I'm also looking forward to the weeks ahead. There will be some big personal changes coming up, as well as my boyfriend's birthday, our trip to Montréal - and a gig featuring two of my favorite bands with one of my best friends! Awesome! So much to be excited for!
Today I'm Grateful For:
Happy challenging, all! xx
