Glorified Cursive – Calligraphy

So, I have always loved calligraphy – but never felt there was a purpose or ‘reason’ to learn it.

But here I am, age 29 & realizing – who cares if it’s a pointless craft to learn – I love it!

So here I am – learning it. I started probably about a month ago – and I love it.

I consider it ‘glorified cursive’ right now, since I haven’t really learned the basics of it.

When I get the money, I plan to take either an online course, and a class that is offered locally.

It isn’t cheap, but I believe it will be beneficial. I hope to become pretty amazing at it.

How great is it – to just write! I love writing!


The Things That Are Out of My Control

Tomorrow is the big day: my closing day! And while I am more excited than I could express over this amazing accomplishment in my life – I realized, I am living my life backwards. While I understand there is not “order” or “correct way” to live your live – as a young child you have always heard the tune:

“Blanky-blank and Blah-blah sittin’ in a tree
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage!!”

Yea … I definitely have accomplished things backwards. But what I have come to accept is the fact that I have achieved every goal in my life that I have wanted to achieve that I am in control of. I have a college degree, I have a full-time job, I have a child and now I own a home. The only thing missing is marriage, and that is the one thing I cannot achieve or accomplish on my own. All I can simply do is wait. And yes, I do say wait because hell – we haven’t even been together for a full 2 years! But, I know he’s the one – I know he’s the one I want to spend the rest of my life with. I would love a ring right now! But, I have to remind myself that it will come … in due time, it will come 😉 Oh, and he’s assured me of that too!
