Welcome to the New Me!

Hi there! *waves* 

My cousin's 21st birthday, Feb 09.

My name is Nickie. I'm 24 years old. I'm from Bristol, CT, a city in central Connecticut. I have been blogging for about three years now. I started out on Blogspot and then moved to Wordpress and now am finally back on Blogspot. I will not be moving any of my posts from Wordpress to here though because I want to start completely fresh. A lot of my older posts were about drama/and crappy life situations. I want to steer away from that and make this blog a lot more positive. I also want to start sponsoring as well as doing reviews. I just have to set myself up for all of that first.

My life is going through some huge changes right now. Tonight, I will be starting my EKG Technician class at the local community college. I am really excited. It's a 15 week program designed so that I when I'm done, I can
take the test, hopefully pass and then find a job. Unfortunately, they do not help with job placement.

If I can't find a job doing that (the demand is pretty low for that specific course) then I will take Phlembotomy (drawing blood), and see if I can get a cross-trained job in that. If I don't come across anything in that, I will go for CNA, which will ultimately give me a certification in Patient Care.

A few more things about me:

  • I have a boyfriend. In my last blog I used a "code name" for him, but I've decided it doesn't really matter if I use his real name anymore. It's Dan. We have been together for a little over five years and are hopefully getting our first place together. It will most likely be a condo. 
  • I drive a 2008 Volkswagen Rabbit. I was introduced to the "scene" when I was 16. As of now though, I have little interest for that. I rarely go to any shows and my car modification plans have taken a back seat, probably forever. My car is perfect the way it is. 
  • I love xbox. I own/play a xbox. Most nights you can find me on Call of Duty: Black Ops with my friends. 
  • I currently work in an office. My company does remediation for water damage, puffbacks, fires, etc. I am in charge of estimates for the insurance companies. It's not bad, but not something I want to do forever. I'm more hands on/moving around/busy kinda person.
  • My blog's title represents my obsession with the South. I am seriously, seriously obsessed with it. I def. believe that I have a southern heart and am stuck in the wrong place. I love the warmth and the friendliness of the South. I have def. been leaning more towards moving to Alabama. I just love the countryness (i know its not a word) of it all. 
  • I hate the winter. I am absolutely a summer girl, early fall places a close second, followed by late spring.
  • I was born in May on a Sunday. Sundays are my favorite day. They just seem so peaceful & easy going, I can't really explain it.
  • I love writing and reading. I own a Nook and have three books to read/finish. 
  • I have a DSLR camera. I really don't know how to work it to well but I hope to learn more about it when I was time too.
  • Country music is my new love. I love how every song is a story. It makes me envision the South, the big empty fields, the beautiful churches.
  • I like a lot of random things. I love driving around. I have a passion for the little things in life.
So, welcome to my blog. Feel free to look around and ask me anything you may want too. I will be tweaking it every now and then. Let me know what you would like to see! And hello old followers from my old blog! Thanks for making the switch over.
