Blast from the past?

I haven't blogged here in ages-- not even the smilies are all the same. But I wonder: have you missed me? Is there any of the old crew left?
I'm in college, now. Does anyone remember the troubled girl of high school? She's still in here, somewhere-- same crazy family, same crazy life-- but she's changed.
God put me through a fire, my old comrades. The remaining years of high school have been a blur. I finally got out of the relationship with Thomas, finally came to terms with the fact that it was abusive in every way possible and that love shouldn't hurt.
I've converted to Christianity. †
My mother went to jail. I spent last Christmas eve there visiting. She's out now and-- woe betide us-- back with my father.
I've been dating this wonderful man for a little over a year now. Crazy, isn't it? How time flies? We're "practically engaged," but since I moved to college, long-disance. I never dreamed that we would manage it so well. I mean, we have our challenges, but it is minimal compared to what it could be.
I'm at Stetson. Never thought I'd make it into a selective, Liberal-arts, private college.
I've lost weight. About 30 pounds of it since I was here last. I look like this now:
I have a job-- kinda. At a photography studio. I do clerical/custodial/photo taking/video taking/photo editing/video editing/modeling. It looks like I'll be needing/getting 2 more soon.
I wonder if anyone will ever actually read this...
