As most young adults, I am still trying to find my calling in life; although being a single 22 year old girl, living in Provo, Utah, you tend to feel like a bit of an outsider. I have lots of friends, most of which are producing their second child by now or posting "I love my hubby" comments all over Facebook, so I have to get creative when it comes to surviving the Young Single Adult world by myself...here's what I've come up with:
I've always been a natural at art, even though every one of my art teachers would beg to differ. Painting, singing, drawing, dancing, photography, writing...I love it all! I still fight my nieces and nephews over coloring books. My latest creative outlet...hair! Why color on paper when a human makes a perfectly adequate canvas? So after 2,000 very long hours of hair school, thousands of dollars (thank you, mom), several cuts and countless tears; I now have a little piece of paper in my wallet saying that I do hair....and boy do I love that little piece of paper!
Then there is Lexi, my absolutely adorable, picture perfect, couldn't-ask-for-a-better-dog, dog! She is 10 pounds of pure happiness! Every time I hear her little paws scramble across the floor I can't help but smile...literally. I would go without food for a whole week just to get her that stupid heated dog bed that I know she would probably never use but she has to have just in case she is cold. Lexi has gotten me through breakups, meltdowns and really bad lobsters way better than any chocolate ice-cream ever could have.
I am absolutely loving this crazy adventure we call life! The road I am traveling is definitely not what I had expected, but I have a feeling it is going to turn out to be so much better! I can't wait to see where it takes me next.
