8.11.17 

It is currently 7:41 a.m. Today is the day I tell my parents that I am moving out of their house and into my boyfriend’s. I am rather terrified of my parents, due to never feeling any choice I make is good enough for them. Not to mention, my parents are very old school, and VERY overprotective. I am 18 years old, and some (probably most) would say that I am too young to move out and I don’t really know what I want. Well, let me tell you this. My boyfriend, Mike, has been supportive of me since Day 1. He has always been there for me to help me through rough spots. We have a very difficult relationship to most people, but oddly enough we understand each other. Of course, he has his flaws, but who doesn’t honestly? Unfortunately, I think my parents only see the flaws in him. I am not sure they see how happy he and I are when we are together. Moving out is a big step for me, especially because I am starting college in 10 days (that includes weekends). I see a bright and happy future with my boyfriend. I love him very much. We know each other’s boundaries, likes, dislikes, allergies, the whole nine yards. As I am writing this morning blog entry, which I am sure no one reads anyway, I am formulating a lot of anxiety about talking to my parents. I definitely know that I want to move in with him, and want a future with him. I know a lot of my parent’s concerns about moving in are due to the fact that they believe Mike will get pregnant, and force me to drop out of college. Mike and I have talked about this multiple times, and honestly, I living with him would make me continue in school more because he holds me accountable for my work, and helps me plan and organize my work so that my brain understands it. It is 7:55 a.m. as I am finishing up this entry, and will be soon talking to my parents. Wish me luck.

I would like to make an appreciation post for my boyfriend. Yes, we fight. Yes, we get angry at each other. Yes, we have differences in opinions. Would I ask for anyone else besides you to have these with? No, I would not. In the months we have been together, we have come across struggles that the average, everyday couple would encounter, but we have made it through them, and we sit here today, stronger than the day before, more connected, safer, more secure, and more loved than any other time before. You are the goofiest guy. Your jokes (while not always the most appropriate), are the absolute funniest and make everyone in the room roll on the floor from laughter. You bring a smile to my face when you enter the room. My day brightens when I see you. You are able to calm me faster than anyone I’ve ever seen in my life. We fit in each other’s arms like puzzle pieces. You are the best cuddler. Even though you don’t cook much, what you do cook, is extremely tasty, and always makes me go back for seconds maybe thirds, but we don’t talk about that plate). You have shown me so many more things that I never thought were possible. Each day, I learn something new about life, you, and myself. I have tried many new things with you, and I loved them. We have the best moments with each other. Our great outweighs our awful. I love you so much hun! Thank you for everything. I am thankful for us, I am thankful for you. We are strong. We are a team. You and I are a beautiful, strong, team.

Life. It has its ups and its downs, and I feel like I have seen some of the best ups and the worst downs recently. You most definitely get what you work for. Recently, I have been going through some personal struggles, family struggles, and minor relationship strains. Thankfully, I have great support systems in my life, and I could not ask for better ones. Despite my boyfriend and I having some difficulties, we are a great team, and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for us.

The past few days have been really enjoyable. Even though a few roadblocks have come up, the days have been for the majority really good. I have been working full-time hours at the clinic which I am not at all used to, but that’s alright it gives an idea of how long school will be in the fall. I am very thankful that my boyfriend it becoming more patient with me because I have been all over the place emotionally the past week or so, and he has been very supportive. He is truly special and makes me happy. Yesterday, my glasses finally came in so I can see far away now!!!! I am still getting used to them, but they help a great deal. Today was Taco Bar Wednesday, by the way, at Starship, and man can my boyfriend and I go through a taco buffet. The heat index was crazy today, 102! Guess you can tell that it’s the middle of July, huh? This weekend Cheyenne has her summer theater performance. I am really looking forward to it. I know she’ll do great!

It has been a particularly rough past few days. I am feeling lost, stressed, confused, and an abundant more of other feelings. It makes me feel like I should be hiding under a rock. I know that these tough times will fade with time and individual growth. Right now I am struggling with finding myself, and who I want to be. While I have many supporters, it feels sometimes like they are pulling me in different directions, tearing me into many frayed pieces. However, I am growing every day. I am becoming stronger, and each day I find myself a little more and more. I am being patient with myself, even if those around me are not. I know things will get better.

7.5.17

I didn’t have time to write a post last night due to me getting home late, and having to get up early this morning. Better late than never. I had an absolutely wonderful day yesterday. I was highly productive during the day (despite me not getting out of bed until 11:30… oops). I cleaned the living room, got a good headstart on my homemade T-shirt quilt, managed to organize my highly hectic schedule, and organize my bedroom. After being my unusually productive, I went to watch my boyfriend’s daughter preview performance for her summer musical, Singing in the Rain. It was great! I am looking forward to seeing that in a few weeks! Since it was the 4th of July yesterday, my family grilled burgers and hot dogs (obviously). The weather was gorgeous. Later in the evening, once it finally got dark enough to start fireworks, my sister and I went to the park just down the street from our house to watch our town’s annual firework show. Our town isn’t much and our firework show isn’t top notch, but it’s pretty good if I do say so myself. I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th!

petwrestling101:

1. Lunch will become a distant memory.
2. Your vet will throw you under the bus with clients…deal with it.
3. You will stab yourself with a needle. (Bonus points if it has lidocaine in it)
4. You will accidentally skin glue yourself to at least one animal.
5. Don’t lock your knees.
6. Keep your mouth closed when helping with an abscess.
7. Rubbing alcohol gets ink out of scrubs, hydrogen peroxide gets blood out.
8. Wear comfortable shoes.
9. Have a sense of humor…if you can’t laugh about it you will get an ulcer from it.
10. Clients are crazy…resist the urge to roll your eyes when taking history.
11. Your receptionists can make your day…or make your day hell.
12. Christmas is a magical time filled with sugary gifts from clients.
13. Those sugary gifts will disappear in ten seconds flat so get yours fast.
14. Never say the Q word (quiet) or slow.
15. Guard your pen like your life depends upon it.
16. People will ask for vet advice at the grocery store, the restaurant, Walmart…if you run into a client outside of work they will ask you vet advice.
17. Take responsibility for your mistakes.
18. There is the very real possibility your mistake will kill at least one animal during your career…learn from it and never do it again.
19. Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands.
20. Become friends with the clinic cat.
21. You will have days when you can’t hit a vein, intibate a cat or place a catheter. We have all had those days. All of us.
22. Try to not cry during every euthanasia, it’s hard and sometimes certain ones hit us harder than others. But, your pain is not as acute as the owner. Sometimes they appreciate the tears…sometimes they don’t.
23. Have fun. Laugh. Tell dirty jokes (not around clients), get drunk (after work), vent, cry, and make memories.

7.3.17

Today is 4th of July eve! I am looking forward to going to see fireworks at the lake tomorrow evening. Last Saturday, July 1, my sister, my boyfriend, his two daughters, and his daughter’s boyfriend went out of town to see the best firework show I’ve ever seen! There were over 3,000 people there! I am not much of a crowd person, but oh my goodness I had a blast! After a long and stressful week, I am thankful to have a boyfriend who knows how to have a good time and keep me calm when there are so many people. The picture I took above was not taken tonight, but a few Tuesdays ago on the way home from my boyfriend’s tennis match that ended up getting rained out, but I thought the picture represented how I am feeling right now: calm. relaxed, and beautiful. I am thankful for life.

postitforward:

31 days of Mental Health Month have come and just about gone. Tumblr, thank you for sharing your stories. Thank you for reading the stories of your peers. Without you—all of you—Post it Forward would not be the beautiful, caring community it is today.

Though we reblogged a lot of the art that was created this month, we wanted to end on a particular high note and highlight just a few more pieces in a special post.

There was no shortage of inspo:

Some of it was simple, but just as helpful and nice to look at:

We’re proud to showcase some valid as heck pets:

One person, Fatin (@nfzsketchbook), even made a zine about what it’s like to focus on self-care while battling a mental illness:

You can check out her full post—and more pages from her zine—here.

Mental Health Month may have been limited to, well, May, but it doesn’t mean our efforts stop in June. Post it Forward is always here as your hub for sharing stories and finding a support system with others who might be going through the same things you are.  So keep sharing if you can, keep reading, and keep up all of the amazing work we’ve seen so far.  And please always remember, there are resources out there if things ever get too hard. <3

Take care of yourself, Tumblr. You deserve it.
