Since I’ve finished school last March, I started working out again to occupy my time and get back in shape. I started running as well. Joined a nationwide movement called Black Girls Run. Running has become something I enjoy even though I do intervals, which burns more calories by the way.

My surgery is scheduled for Wednesday and then for a month I’ll be at home recovering. The first question I asked my doctor was…you guessed it, “When can I start running again?” She said it’s gonna be at least six weeks or so. We don’t want stitches poppin out and what not. Maaaaaaan it is killing me to know that I’ll be on this hiatus until doc gives me the okay. Oh well…

Oh! I finished module 2 of my TEFL certification. WHOOP! WHOOP! I figure if I do 3 modules for the next 4 weeks, I’ll be done by mid October. Good stuff!

Time to get up now!


I’ve been thinking…I’ve been thinking…

Hello there! Sitting at the edge of my bed and decided to post something. As the title says, “I’ve been thinking…I’ve been thing…” not what you probably think if you’re a BeyoncĂ© fan. I’ve been seriously thinking about seeking employment elsewhere…elsewhere meaning…leaving the country. Yup! I’ve been looking for a job for over a year and as time goes by, bills are mounting and i’m not getting interviews. I’m looking for more in my life. I’m looking for more than just a new and better paying job…I’m looking for a new experience overall. For the past three years my brother has been in my ear about teaching English abroad. I don’t know anything about teaching, but at this point what do I have to lose. Living in a whole other country will open my eyes to so many things plus I’ll get a chance to travel and see the world. I’ve been researching, talking to friends who are currently living overseas, and praying. Welp, I’ve made my decision and I’m gonna do it. I’m going to start my TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) certification on Friday. It will be an online course and I’m nervous and excited. I don’t know where I’ll end up. I could be in South Korea, Japan, Costa Rica, UAE or my dream location…Italy next year. It’s time for something new. If you want changes in your life, then you gotta make moves.
