I never really realized how much I didn't smile until I began wondering why my face hurt at the end of every day.

Turns out I've been in a pretty good mood lately -- even my students could tell! I am so happy in my life decisions right now, just because I'm finally focusing on ME. I've applied for grad school and plan to begin this summer, I'm taking the last of my certification tests so I can be considered "highly certified," and I'm receiving an award for my "outstanding academic and leadership abilities" in a couple of weeks.

I also just got my first big girl paycheck, which feels absolutely incredible. I am still sticking to a budget, but I can actually add in fun things again, like manicures and pedicures and drinks with girlfriends.

I am so ready for spring to officially be here... I am thoroughly enjoying the fact that I wore a shift dress and peep toe heels to church this morning. I can't wait to lose the layers!!

How are you dolls doing?

So here's what's been up.

Mr. Preppy and I broke up. It's kind of been coming, but it was just made official last night. It may or may not be permanent... I think we're still on different pages about that. I just haven't been happy in a long time. We don't hate each other, we're actually being very adult about it (scary, I know), but the fact that we're both so calm and emotionless about it seems to be a sign that we're doing the right thing.

Forgive me if I don't post for a while, though... I have to rethink my blog design so I can be on here without looking at pictures of past happiness constantly. New design will be strictly me, Preppy Pup, and my best girlfriends!
