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! :)
