I'm a BIG?

Recently, I decided I wanted to make some changes in my life. I've been doin my usual things [eat, sleep, work, drink, dance, drink, soccer -- repeat] & at the beginning of August I hurt my knee at a soccer game. So my lame self has been sittin on my butt for the last 4 weeks waiting for my leg to stop being fat & that's where this fabulous idea came from.

I want to be a Big Sister. Not literally, but to a sweet little girl that needs an extra hand to hold. :) A lot of my friends are in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program here in my city and I finally decided to take the plunge. It's something I need to do & I feel like it's almost selfish not to. It has taken me about 10 months to decide to do it [yes, that is a direct correlation to my usual decision making process, haha]. But now I'm excited!

I saw a princess book in Winn Dixie yesterday & thought to myself  "aww, I can't wait to read this to my little." --and paint her nails and teach her soccer!

I've never had a little sister before. I used to beg my mom to adopt one but it never happened-- probably a good thing it didn't because then my parents would  have 2 crazy daughters instead of just one. (wink)

So here it goes! Thursday afternoon is my interview. Fingers crossed! :)

-Day One.

Um Hello?

In all honesty, I have absolutely no idea where to start this? But I'm gonna give it a shot & we'll see how it turns out. :)

The name's Kayla. I am a bubbly college grad from a small town in West Virginia  (Woot Woot, Go Mountaineers!). I gew up in a tiny city, went to college in a tiny city and basically have only known tiny cities my whole life-- until I got an absolutely perfect job offer to travel halfway across the country (well, down the country) to Columbus, Georgia the fall after I graduated college. So here I am living, working and beginning my "big kid' life 12 hours away from home with only my [absolutely wonderful] boyfriend, who I'll continue to name *boyfriend* & our pets, Lucy & Penny.

I started reading blogs at work after I stumbled across one in Google Images and for some reason, I was completely fascinated! I have never written a diary, never even liked writing to be honest. But this adventure just seems like something I can pour my heart into.

This blog isn't intended to have a theme (weddings, babies, etc)- no nothing like that. But instead I'm going to follow my life with it. I have so many plans for my 20's and 30's I want to be able to remember them all and have a place to capture my thoughts. So when I'm 80 I can look back on this site [hopefully] and remember my energy, and spunk and general love for life.

So with that, I'M OUT. See you next time :)
