After my boyfriend and I broke up, I decided that it would be best for me to move back to Pennsylvania (which is where all of my family is) but I needed to stick around until my semester was over.
During that time, they discovered advanced thyroid cancer in my grandmother, and after flying down to see her a couple times she finally passed away on Mother's Day. She went peacefully in her home surrounded by family and because she didn't want a funeral we had a wonderful celebration of her life this past Saturday for all of the family and friends.
With all of the chaos of my ended relationship and my grandmother's situation, I managed to finish the semester with B's and C's (which is horrible for me, but it was the best I could do under the circumstances). I will be transferring to a state university in PA starting in the fall.
I'm all settled in down here in good old PA and it's even more gorgeous than I remember. The pounds are still coming off. I don't have a gym down here, but I'm out in the rural area about an hour west of Philadelphia, so I have been hiking and doing a lot of yard work. I also plan on buying a bike for the hilly back roads. Also, being a single girl now has certainly give me that extra motivation to look amazing!
Hope you're all doing well.
