My name is Stayci,
I love to Read, Write, Paint, and take beautiful photos. My favorite color would probably be any purple, and i have an appetite for anything thats not tator tot caserol. I live here in sunny St. George, with my husband of two and a half years. I don’t really enjoy the heat, but clear sky’s and breathable air beats suffocating in Salt Lake City’s poor air quality.
After I graduated high school, I had a plan to go on an LDS mission, and after that I was going to start collage for nursing. I graduated with my CNA license, got a job working for the Veterans Home, and didn’t go on a mission. After thinking about it, and praying I came to a realization that my mission was to stay home and do what I had to do for my family and myself.
A little farther down the road I met my
husband, we dated for five months, and then got engaged and was married four months later. Our little family consists of just the two of us, and this April we will be moving my little sister (19) in with us. We hope to be able to have a family one day, when we are bit more financially ready. We don’t have any pets either, sadly that’s another reason it’s hard to live here in southern utah, especially if you are renting. There are NO pets aloud!
Right now I am currently working at a residential treatment center, for troubled youth. I work long 12 hour nights, watching over 16 girls. I don’t dislike my job, but it can get pretty boaring. And exhausting. I like this job though because I am with kids who have been through the same things I have. They have the same things I do. The only difference is they have had a harder time coping with it. These kids are not bad kids. They have just been through things kids should never have to go through. They feel like they have nobody, and that’s why Im here.
This Blog is something I have wanted to do, not just for me, but for those around me. In my posts you will find my journey, what I’ve gone through in my past, what I’m dealing with now in my present, and what I hope to accomplish in my future. Here you will find things most people tell you to “keep quite”, or things others will say, “you shouldn’t be sharing that”. This is my life I am sharing with you. My own personal trials, failures, and success. I’m not here to judge anyone for what they have gone through, and I hope you will not judge me in return. I’m not here to do anything but share my experiences, thoughts, and feelings. This blog is for my family and friends, and anyone who is simply looking for someone who has been there. My hopes for this blog is that it may help those who feel like they can’t talk about there past. For those who struggle with Mental illnesses, like myself, or even for those who have a loved one who has been through any of these things, and you just don’t know what to do. I’m here to help in anyway.
I will apologize in advance if anything that has been read seems or feels offensive, or triggering. I will also have to apologize for my Grammer, I did say I love to write, not that I was good at it. I will also like to ask for patience as I try and navigate myself through this new blogging experience. If there is anything I could improve on, I am all ears, I’d love the feed back.
