• About Me

    I'm Amanda, a 21 year old Florida girl. I'm a student at the University of North Florida, where I'm majoring in Journalism. I love music, the beach and driving. My friends are my family, and I love hanging out at the movies, the hookah bar or a rock show. I want to pick up as many useless talents as possible and to travel the world taking pictures and having good times with my best friends. For more information about me, view my About page.

Aren’t we all works in progress?

This week, my mother and I started walking. We’re walking just over a mile every Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday now. I’ve progressively cut back on my soda intake, and I’m trying to do a better job of eating three meals a day, rather than one.

Although it pains me to publish this in such an accessible setting, I’d be lying if I said I was comfortable with my body. I am overweight. I consider myself severely unattractive, and I seriously dread seeing myself in the mirror. I know what I have to do to start changing that, and I understand that if I don’t fix it now I never will. So I am a work in progress. (Note to self: I should write out my list of goals for the year and post that as part of NaBloPoMo.)

At any rate, I had to share a snippet of conversation from this morning. My sister accompanied us today; she’s thinking about joining us regularly. Mom and Sister were talking on the way out the door:

Mom: When we get back, I can pop some cinnamon buns in the oven.
Sister: What’s the point of walking?
