About me

Alexa, 20, California. Kinesiology major at the University of San Francisco :) This is where I blog about my life and the things that make me smile. I am in love with an amazing man named Randy, who is a Medic in the U.S. Army. He is stationed at Ft. Bragg in North Carolina and he was deployed once. Although we may be miles apart, our love knows no distance. We have been together for 3 years <3

He was deployed: 4/28/13-2/3/14

What I am grateful for today:

  • I have lost 10 pounds since I started working out and eating healthy in June
  • I ate a yummy sandwich that filled my tummy
  • I am going to an amazing university that is giving me so much knowledge for the future
  • I have met so many new people that are so genuinely nice
  • I got the Dolce Vita booties I ordered from Nordstrom (freaking cuteee)
  • Randy is in a sleep study that will hopefully get to the root of his sleep issues
  • I get to Skype sleep with Randy tomorrow :)

So many awesome things to be grateful for.  It’s refreshing to write them down and realize that even though there are a lot of stressful things in my life at the moment, I still have amazing parts of my life that I should recognize.

I have tons of feelings tonight.  Good and sad ones.

First, I feel so upset with myself and my lack of exercise.  Yes, I have been walking SO much in San Francisco.  I literally walk everywhere.  But, I’ve been so busy getting used to my classes and my tons of work that I’ve been doing I feel like I have had no time to schedule a work out in.  By the time I am done with my day all I want to do is go home and relax until I need to study more :(

I also miss Randy so much.  Ever since his early release didn’t work out we have both been so down in the dumps.  It’s been difficult.  He is expected to come home in December for a couple weeks, but my family is planning a trip to Georgia for about a week.  I am going to have to figure something out to maybe come back home early so I can spend more time with him because most likely that will be the last time I see him before he is discharged from the Army in June or July.  That is a long ass time!!! :(

I can’t help, but feel so full of love and gratitude for things in my life.  I recently changed majors from Biology to Kinesiology and I am so happy with it.  My classes are interesting.  I have met so many awesome people!  It was a huge change going from such a competitive major where people literally don’t talk to you, to a major that is causing me to make so many more friends than I have ever had.  It’s insanely amazing.  I am so proud of myself being that I am living in an apartment and I have been doing so well with cooking for myself and taking care of myself :)  It was a big adjustment, but I am getting the hang of it!  And of course, I have to talk about Randy :) Although things have been tough for us recently, we have really stepped up our relationship.  He is being so honest with me about his feelings.  He used to hide everything from me and push all of his thoughts and feelings to the side.  You can only do that for so long before exploding. He finally realized that he doesn’t need to hold that back.  He can trust me to be there for him.  I feel so grateful for his trust <3
