Day 29: 3 Things You're Proud Of

  1. Moving in to my own apartment. This is a huge step in growing up. I'm proud of myself for taking that step and not thinking twice about it. I'm not fully independent just yet; my parents are helping with rent and bills. But I'm working towards relying on myself. This is only the beginning. I love having a place to truly call my own. It's a great feeling.
  2. My job. I'm still waiting for August before I really make it official, but I started working with the Atlanta JayHawks at the end of the May, and I love it. My first real job, as I like to call it, was in retail, and even though I loved making my own money, I just wasn't feeling the job. I dreaded every shift, and it sucked out all of my energy. That's not what a job should be. I want to love what I do. I love cheerleading, so finding a job at gym has been a blessing. I'm just hoping I can stay there for the rest of the time I'm in Atlanta.
  3. My wardrobe. This may sound frivolous compared to an apartment and a job, but it's something I've taken a lot of pride in. This time last year I could have been on "What Not To Wear." All I wore was t-shirts and jeans. I didn't care about my looks. But I finally got a grip, and I've spent this past year redefining my look and building a solid wardrobe. I'm a firm believer in the phrase "you've got to look good to feel good." Now that I'm developing confidence in my ability to dress myself, I'm developing confidence in myself as a person.

What are you proud of?
