So my boyfriend and I got in a argument because I no longer enjoy hanging with my friends. He feels that I am fake for not wanting to be bothered with them. He fails to see my point of view. No matter what he's always siding with what he believes me friends are probably thinking (which they are not). My Pastor said (something to these sorts) if you want to be a purer person you will not become one by hanging with people who curse, have sexual jokes, etc, etc. My friends are not necessarily 100% those people but they do participate in things and have actions that I am not fond of. I also flat out just don't have fun when I am with them 97% of the time since I have returned from college. My boyfriend says that I believe I am better than them which really hurt my feelings. In no way, shape or form do I believe I am better than my friends. Yes, I am very into school. I love school. I get happy when people want to converse about school with me. It tickles my fancy. He says I think I'm better than them because I go to church. I really think he feels that way because I am so into my schoolwork and I don't feel it's okay to participate in certain things that they all do. Well, my friends attend church occasionally as well... So I don't understand how the assumption goes hand in hand. I am just highly irritated that I am trying to become more close to God and I am loosing everyone. I'm not even hurt by the situation as I thought I would be... I'm just upset the closest person to me is not being more understanding. I rarely ever hang with my friends, except when we are working out. I don't speak with them often either. I am just ready to go back to school.

So I've decided to hold out on buying myself clothes until I weigh 145 lbs. Why you ask?
- To encourage me to meet my goal!!
- So I won't be investing in clothes that won't fit when I go back to school!
I hope that this helps to encourage me even more. I'm about 15 lbs away from my goal and I'm about to begin my daily runs/bike rides tomorrow. It's also finally getting warm enough to swim here. I'm always stuck here, 15 lbs away from my goal. I will keep you guys updated, because like I said before... I refuse to quit this time. No matter how long it takes me. Results are the best encouragement.

Hey you all! I have challenged myself to go a year without putting any type of heat on my hair! I know, I know... scary but I should have took this step a while ago. I already have almost one month down. The next two months should be very easy because I got box braids. I mainly got the braids so I can go hard working out this summer and lose my last 15 lbs without worrying about sweating out my hair (yes, you can sweat out your natural hairstyles!) or drying it out running in the sun. I'm so excited about going one year without heat on my head. LEGGGGGGGO :)
