So I've decided to start a new blog. I'm leaving behind my emo Livejournal days (except of course, when I need to be emo). I want a blog that other people can follow - one that explains things. I've been going through a rapid transition to adulthood (hello! no posters in my bedroom anymore?!), and I feel like a need a blog to represent that too. So here it goes. Since I'm not necessarily just blogging for myself, I'll do a full round of introductions.
My name is Amanda. I'm 21 years old, and I'm a senior in college. I'm engaged to Sean, whom I've been dating for over 4 years now. We'll be getting married in January of 2011. I've been involved with band since I was in 5th grade, and I'm now one of four captains for my college's color guard - we spin the flags with the marching band. Along with color guard, classes, and wedding planning, I somehow manage to hold down a part-time job as well. My family is incredibly important to me, and I've been around little kids for most of my life, including my 8 year old sister. Taking care of kids is first nature to me, and while I'm not ready for them yet, I can't wait until I am. I just bought my first car, a 2008 Dodge Caliber. My life is so incredible busy, but so fulfilling at the same time.
Anyways. Because I am a busy college student, I'm off to read for classes.
