It's been a looooooong time. Over a year.
The truth is though, I miss blogging. I feel dumb coming back after not writing for more than a year.
So, what to do. Feel dumb. Or let it go and move on.
It's been an interesting year. Last summer I moved in with a good friend and former college roommate. I've loved living with her, but now she is moving out of state to live with her fiancee. (Guess that makes sense, but I'll miss herrrrrr!)
I have a new job, at an oil and gas accounting firm. I've been there 3 months so far. I freaking LOVE IT. The people are awesome, the pay is better, and the work is interesting and challenging. I couldn't really ask for more. I feel like I've finally figured out what I'm good at - and I have to say, being GOOD at and also LIKING my job are AMAZING FEELINGS.
Anyway, what with Emily moving away, I'm going to have some time to fill in my days. No more binge watching Netflix together. No more hanging out all weekend long being lazy. I need to build my own life back up. I've so loved this past year, and having a friend around all the time was so good for my mental health. But I also think I'm ready to live on my own for a little while. I want to work out more, I want to go to bed earlier. I want to cook healthier foods and not eat out so much. My physical health is definitely not where it used to be, and I'm excited to start down the path of living a healthier life again.
I put my gym membership on hold for 3 months because 1. the spin classes that worked with my schedule (and that were taught by my favorite teacher) were cancelled for the summer. and 2. I'm going through a difficult financial situation and can use the $30/month elsewhere. I've scheduled it to pick back up at the end of August, and I already can't wait to get back! Until then, my workouts are going to be DVDs and walks and runs outside.
I'll do my best to keep things updated here. I really do enjoy writing and blogging, and I'm looking forward to getting back into a routine in this area too.
For now, it's time to get some dishes done, perhaps make something for dinner (not gonna lie, it's like 90 in Denver and I ate ice cream when I got home from work...). So yeah, I need a real "dinner", which may end up just being a grilled cheese or a bowl of cereal.
Be back soon... I promise!
