Catching up on life

Afternoon. Thank you in advance for everyone that is reading this. It has been a very long time since I have posted years actually. I am so excited to have found my account! Here is an update on my life. I am now 31 years old and a full time mental health therapist. I graduated from graduate school with a Masters of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Counseling and now practice in Atmore, AL. I truly love it and work with people from all different walks of life. I recently started working in Atmore but have been a therapist in Mississippi in the past. I have experience working with people of all ages and now focus mainly on teenagers. I have history working in outpatient settings and now work in residential. It is different but I am learning that I like it in different ways. I am still having some issues dealing and processing grief from my mother's passing a few years ago due to feelings that were repressed; however, God is great and is helping me work through it. I am so grateful for all of the wonderful and loving friends I have made in life that help me. I have a new boyfriend and we have been together for almost 2 years this upcoming November. He is very kind, hardworking, funny, and sweet. I love him with all of my heart and he is my person. He is so understanding of everything that happens in my life as well as my grief as mentioned prior to this sentence. I'm going to a friend from college's wedding in October and spending some time with my father and sister as well. My sister and I are planning a trip to Ireland (my first trip out of the states!) for our birthday this upcoming year. I am so unbelievably excited and cannot wait to go. I recently received a blessing from God in the form of a 2nd job so that I can pay off some debt and am ready to start making way on this. I learned that in life it is best to focus on joys instead of sorrows for sorrows weight us down if we allow this. Today is my day off from the office so I am currently unpacking and binge watching Netflix movies. Has anyone started keto? I heard some good things and have thought about doing it in order to get my sugar in check. I eat wayy too much sugar and then end up feeling run down. I learned I have a whole milk allergy and cannot consume anything that is pasteurized. Please keep my family, friends, and myself in prayer as you go to God with your woes. I will keep you in my prayers as well. Blessings.

Love,
Elizabeth

both interesting and new

Well, those guys I met a week or so ago, Josh and Tyler, both like me. The thing is I like both of them. On the other hand, I wouldn't date Josh for anything. I like his company don't get me wrong but he's bipolar, arrogant, and he's stuck up. That's the nicest way I know how to say it. I have no problem being friends with someone who is stuck up, however, I don't appreciate him making it sound like he's the most perfect person in the world because he has money or had money or whatever. To me, I don't think you should judge a person based on how much money they have but on his or her character. He told me that he liked me but honestly it can't be because we have anything in common because let's face it WE DON'T! lol As far as Tyler goes, he's sweet as can be and I love talking to him. We have a lot in common. We're both Baptists, both very sweet, both like to laugh, we have a lot of the same qualities and interests. He can make me laugh and smile so easily that it's ridiculous! He told me that he had a surprise for me Wednesday, thing is I have no idea what it is which I guess is why it's a surprise. He said it was something tangible, as if that tells me anything at all. lol Tyler's father is dying and has pancreatic cancer, please keep him in your prayers!! Josh is a very hurt person, I've noticed that from the time I've talked to him. I hope his heart heals soon. Keep him in your prayers as well! I get to see Tyler tomorrow and I'm excited :). I've been sick lately, had the cold really badly around Thanksgiving break and Tyler checked up on me everyday. How sweet is that?! Lol Remember my ex boyfriend Matt? Well, we talked today and it was just like it always is we both care so much for each other but it's like we're stuck. As much as I want to be with Matt, I don't think now is the best time and not just because of Tyler but because not only is Matt STILL dating that girl online that he has never met who could be a liar or goodness knows what but if we were meant to be together right now we would be. I figure I have to respect that even if it does kinda hurt my heart somewhat. I have to keep reminding myself that if I'm meant to be with Tyler or Matt that God will make it happen and that I can only do so much. I'm gonna leave the big worries up to God from now on and just be happy for me. If it's meant to happen, God will find a way for it to and that's all I need to know. This week is the last week of classes (YAY!) Which means, that I only have one more day of my pigeon lab (it's for behavior analysis, psychology). That makes me so unbelievably happy. Lol Thanksgiving was nice, it was good to be around family. My best friend and her daughter came over and so did my uncle, we ate and hung out it was so fun. I helped my mom cook and spent time with her and my father. My sister didn't get to come home for Thanksgiving and it made me kinda sad but she told me she was coming home for Christmas so I'm really glad about that. Her and I have been talking lately and we are trying to figure out ideas of what to get our parents for Christmas. So far, I think we've come up with some good stuff but I won't reveal my sources just incase they get jinxed. :) Happy Holidays from me and mine to you and yours! God bless. :)

Life

As you all know, school is out for summer. I'm going to be a junior this upcoming fall. I can't believe I'm in college, it makes me feel so old. lol It really made me realize how fast life goes by. I hope each of you are happy, safe, healthy. The last year has been really hard on me but I'm doing well with the guidance of the Lord in my midst. He's getting me through everything and helping me keep my faith. I have to sadly report that a friend of mine has lost his daughter due to cancer, she passed on yesterday at 4:12p.m. She was 12 years old and stayed strong to her last breath. I hope his family will find strength and comfort together through this hard time in their lives. Please pray for them! It'd be greatly appreciated. Remember that hardships in life can be lifted up during prayer. My friend, Leah, is pregnant and keeps having to go to the hospital because her heart keeps giving her problems. I have a feeling she might end up having the baby early due to this, she's been rushed to a hospital in Birmingham, AL. I hope she's going to be fine, she's like a sister to me! I've been friends with her and her family since I was a child. A friend of a friend of my fathers son is in the hospital, he's 4 months old. His daycare provider shook him and now he has shaken baby syndrome and keeps having seizures. He's staying strong so far and I hope he comes through. Please pray for baby Noah and Leah as well! I'd also appreciate it if you prayed for my family and my friends who are going through hard times. I'll pray for each of you as well. I hope everybody is enjoying their summer and enjoying the times they have with each other. God bless each of you!

your faithful,
elizabeth

I watched a very scary movie yesterday called Wrong Turn, it scared me so much that I probably won't ever watch another horror movie again. I realized that bug juice hasn't been on for about two days, it didn't come on last Friday because of the That's So Raven marathon that was leading up to the new episode about the Audition to Action. Audition to Action was a pretty good episode, I thought. I kept thinking Corey was trying to be Elton John when he was singing that King of the Keys song. Raven & Chelseas dance were my favorite, cause she looked like she was off of a broadway show and Raven was wearing some cute outfits. Weird Science came on the other day, Lisa changed places with Gary & Wyatt, so she ended up going to school and Gary & Wyatt were genies(they weren't very good at it either). Lisa got invited to a party by Lyle(Heather's b.f.), and she thought he liked her but he was using her to embarrass her, but Gary & Wyatt got into his eyes and made him change his words around and then made Lyle tell Lisa that he loved her and that he always has since the first time he saw her, then Lyle kissed Lisa and told her to escape before it was too late. heh I made some fobanners yesterday, mostly for the tribe community.

Today I watched Charmed, it was an episode that was sorta weird but it was cool. It was about the Source trying to trick Piper into thinking she was an only child, not a witch, and that Prue wasn't her sister and that Prue wasn't dead, unfortunately they were wrong cause nothing can break the Charmed sisters cause they found her just in time and kicked some butt(as usual) and saved her! I saw Leo:). I watched Bug Juice today too, it was about everyone having a crush on Connor, the whole time they were saying that I was thinking to myself if I was there I wouldn't have a crush on Connor, I would have a crush on either Andrew, Everett, or Andy. Probably all three, lol. :D Sarai and Stephanie were fighting over who Connor liked, turns out he likes both of them, he just doesn't want to go out with Sarai, he wants to go out with Stephanie. I'm reading to watch the disney channel original movie Stuck in the Suburbs, it has the girl from Phil of the Future on it, the Chinese one. I love Phil of the Future, Lizzie McGuire, Bug Juice, That's So Raven, and lots more. *wink wink* :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Went to the movies!

I saw the Notebook today. FINALLY Last time I tried to see it I ended up having to watch Spiderman 2 because the Notebook was playing. I finally watched it, and it was AWESOME! I'm probably gonna buy it on tape when it comes out, so I can watch it even more ^_^. I giggled so hard in the shotgun scene when that older couple tells Noah they want to buy the house for $50,000 haha I thought that was hilarious! I liked the part where Noah said If you're a bird, I'm a bird too. that was cool! I got a FREEthe Notebook movie poster. At the theatre I went too, they had a stack of em' and when you buy popcorn, </b>candy</b>,soda you get one free! Why did everyone call Noah Duke at the end of the movie when they were older?:s I liked the rain scene IT WASN'T OVER IT STILL ISN'T OVER!. :) I bought me some popcorn, and some Mr.Pibb and I had me a ball. :P I almost died when I saw Ryan on my screen, I had just put my glasses on and I was smiling the whole movie. Not once did I cry either, the movie was DEEP.

~!Elizabeth!~

I GOT A NOTEBOOK MOVIE TICKET STUB^_^ OH YEA!

Everybody in the theatre getting SNIFFLY!
