The Current UnAdventuresome life of Dana

Well, it's been a while since I've blogged here since nothing too exciting has happened as of late. The past couple months were filled with ups and down. But, I'll recap the year thus far!

In February, something wonderful happened! I won a trip to a ranch in Montana! My mother and I went from February 6 to 9 (which meant that I missed the Packers winning the Super Bowl). It was WONDERFUL! We went dog-sledding and did archery. We even went zip-lining in the Rocky Mountains during a snow storm, how cool is that? It was all expenses paid so we didn't have to worry about anything.

Other than that, I was supposed to move to Chicago in August for Graduate School. However, I had to defer due to financial reasons (a.k.a. no co-signer for my loans). To be honest, that was the only time I've come close to depression. I was so excited to be going and then it all came crashing down.

On a brighter note, I did reconnect with my best friend from 5th grade through high school, Laura! After a day it was as if nothing had changed. After a month we had matching tattoos and even tried to dye our hair the same color (which was alcohol related). It's been fun...

And now, ONLY 6 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS! I'm soooooooo excited, as usual. In fact, I'm off to go wrap some presents!
