As you can see I changed the name of my blog today. When I started this blog I couldn't really think of a title so I just went pretty generic. As I have started reading other blogs I have been so jealous of the cute and funny names of the blogs out there. Some of the names I would have loved to have stolen but instead this new title just came to me. I think it is a little better than just Trying to get Healthy. I have a good sense of humor and like to think of myself as witty so I really wanted something a little more original. What do you think?
I am engaged to Michael, definitely the yin to my yang. I spend most of my free time reading, hanging out with my family, or writing. I love to travel and want to see the world but so far have had to settle for a few states. I am on a journey of self-discovery and have discovered a passion for human rights and social justice, while seeking my own sense of spirituality and well being.
I am a vocal advocate for movements such as #BlackLivesMatter, the Innocence Project, as well as an ally for LBGT individuals. I am majoring in Rehabilitation Studies with an emphasis on Psychology, Criminal Justice, and Biology.
The other essentials you should know are that I have many awesome nephews (and a niece so special she deserves her own category) and I love being an Aunt. I am also about to become a step mom to a smart beautiful girl. I am sure you can already tell that I am a very liberal and open minded person. I love tattoos and hope to get more. The last thing I will say is that I often have a tough time making decisions or committing to just one view because I can see both sides of a situation. Rock it, live it, own it!
