New blog. Here goes nothing I, I guess.

Dream Shrapnel.

I haven’t ever been afraid of dreaming too big, but now I’m realizing that that might have been a mistake. I went into a ton of debt at an expensive school and have a crap job to show for it. I got married way to young to the man of my dreams (who I do love dearly), but I’m realizing that I didn’t know what I was signing up for by marrying him and now we’ve been living in a tiny apartment for way too long because neither of us can make much money.

I thought I would be living in a 3 bedroom house with a yard and a dog and a baby by now. I can’t believe how wrong I was.

And now I have to deal with the fragments of these hopes - the shrapnel from my shattered dreams - reminding me how short I fell of the life I was going to make for myself.
