Do more than exist, live.
Do more than touch, feel.
Do more than look, observe.
Do more than read, absorb.
Do more than hear, listen.
Do more than listen, understand.
Do more than think, ponder.
Do more than talk, say something.

I woke up today, on the notorious 11/11/11, and realized that I wanted to do more with my life, so I started a blog. Have you ever just gotten stuck in a rut? Well I sure have and let me tell you about it.
I attended the University of Kansas from 2002 to 2006. I LOVED college to say the least.
My college years went by way too fast and seem like a blur today. I changed my major six times, dabbling in pre-med, graphic design, business, occupational therapy, psychology, and ending with economics. I was involved in a sorority where I made the best of friends and had way too much fun.
Even though I went through college changing my mind consistently about what I wanted to do with my life, I did graduate.
The jury is still out on what I should do.
Life has a funny way of working out. I have always had trouble with making decisions and sticking to them. I was not really sure what I wanted to do after I left Lawrence, KS. Luckily for me life decided for me. I got a call in May 2006 from Chris, my ex-boyfriend (the one that I always compared other boys to) and we decided to rekindle our relationship. The rest is pretty much history from there.
Luck came around again, and I discovered that one of my friend’s ex-girlfriends (who was the bomb.com) needed and extra roommate!!! So it was off to Manhattan, KS for me to live in the same town as Chris. Moving in with two of the most amazing girls was kind of like a continuation of college life, just in a new college town!
I would consider that year to be one of the best years of my life! I graduated from college, moved to a new town, made new wonderful friends, adopted a puppy, got engaged and married the love of my life. It was a whirlwind of craziness…
After that year, life kind of settled down. Chris and I were still living in Manhattan, while he finished his master’s program. I started working at a local bank putting my economics major to hard work.
Not! The days started to blur together. Before I knew it we were moving to Oklahoma City and buying a new house.
Which gets me to today. I live each day pretty much the same. I go to work each day, eat pretty much the same thing and am getting further and further from the things I used to enjoy. I am starting a blog today to DO MORE with my life. I want to start actually cooking meals instead of putting them in the microwave or eating out. I want to craft and do design projects! I plan on posting my spin on other people’s ideas. More to come Monday.
What is your blog about?
