Here I am, back to my ignored blog. I’ve missed writing but as I got healthier, life got busier. Thats a good thing, but I’ve never been a consistent journalist. When I was younger, I always attempted to write in a diary or journal but it always faded out. As proof of that, I have a journal that my mom gave me for my birthday in 1999. It’s not even half used. I now use it to write my to-do lists. I’m a list person and a planner - thats how I use pretty journals!
Anyway, as I said, life got busy and this blogging thing went by the wayside. But I now find myself with some downtime again and would like to pick it back up. This summer I was back to my job as a college math tutor. Tutoring was a job I got accidentally but I ended up really loving it. Now that I’m not tutoring anymore, I feel like I am not using my brain as much. I miss that and am hoping starting to blog again fills the creative, brain challenging void.
So where am I now, you ask? My fiancé and I are two months settled into our very first home together. Granted we don’t own it, but we are pretty close with the landlords (my parents) and have creative license on the decorating, home improvement, etc. Yes, at 28, I find myself setting up home with a significant other. It has been so much fun and a surprisingly easy transition. I love living with Mike (I think he’s a keeper ;) ) and we have started on a great routine. After a year of a long distance relationship with a surprise engagement in there, then a summer of 3 moves and studying for the Bar, it feels so awesome to be in one place and really start our lives. We find ourselves in a new area, not knowing too many people but being 2 miles from the beach brings quick solace. We have put time, money and love into the condo, feel comfortable there and are happy to call it home. I am so excited to enter this new phase of life - one where I actually feel like an adult - and I wouldn’t want to be entering this phase with anyone but Mike!
Hopefully I’ll be a bit more disciplined and you’ll hear more from me soon. Till then…:)
