A New Beginning

If you look back to the post about everybody wanting the fairytale ending you could probably point out some pretty dark stuff (all subconscious). I am fully going to admit here and now that I have been an "unhappy" person for quite some time now. However, this is a new start for me. It's the best time of my life. I just enjoyed prom with the best guy a girl could ask for, I joined the catholic church, and I am now working on becoming an artist and finding a college that can help make the last of my dreams come true. I know, it sounds like a lot in a short period of time. Trust me, it was crazy so I'm going to take things slowly here for you. First: prom night was amazing. There was drama up until the hour of. It drove all of us crazy. I wore my hair up in a side-pony tail with curls. I had silver heels, huge earrings, and an amazing make-up job. My dress had spaghetti straps, was royal blue, and had huge flowers on it (all decorated in zipper). I got a clutch to match the shoes and everything was perfect. My mom ordered pasta from a local Italian restaurant and we had our own "private catering" (my siblings and cousins) out in front of my house. We took my car to prom (I drove and it was way better than a limo) and I spent the whole night with a complete gentleman. After prom we went back to my house for ice cream and finished the evening at about 1:00 a.m. Second: Easter was even better than prom. No, the guy from prom did not get to attend the church service with me, but it was still a great night. On Saturday, April 23, I went over to church at nine in the morning for a reflection. At about 1:00 in the after noon I went home and started getting ready for my last shift at my first job (I spent the previous two weeks as the Easter Bunny in the mall) and got my picture taken with my whole family. When I got off work I went home, dyed eggs, had dinner, took a nap, then had to get ready for the 4 hour bilingual mass at church. It was a great night. I spent all day worrying that I wouldn't be able to do the full immersion baptism, but Father Francisco helped me get through it lol. after we changed our clothes we did confirmation. I picked Catherine as my confirmation name because she is the patron saint of art and that's where I want to go in life. It was a long decision making process to get the right name. It was between Monica, Margaret, Margaret (yes there were two), Elizabeth, Catherine, Genevieve, Edith, Esther, and Bridget. After confirmation there was our first holy communion. My mom got the whole night on video (which may or may not be a good thing). If you watch the video, you can see the look on my face after communion. Please don't ask about the taste of the Eucharist lol. Third: colleges are not easy to find. I can not find the right one to save my life. I need a school for art, but it has to be close enough that I can still go home on the weekends. I don't really feel like gong to a junior college, but I may have to. Maybe I'll do a few years in the military first. We'll see. This really does feel like a new beginning. Let me know if you have any ideas. I'll be back soon. <3 Saved Individual
