lifeI’m going to try writing on here at least once a month even if it’s only to hold myself accountable to a goal. I sincerely need to have some form of consistency because my life has been anything but that lately. My health has had a big part in that as well as major events ranging from deaths of family/friends to seeing my dad retire. As of right now the biggest issue is hunting for a job that I can enjoy and make a decent wage at.

I decided to take some time off from working at the beginning of the year for both mental and physical health reasons. I felt comfortable doing so because I had a decent bit of money saved up to get through the first half of the year with no help from anyone.

texasI went to Texas about two months ago but prior to that it had been almost 2 years since I had made my way back to my beloved home state. It took my dad officially retiring to get me back down there; although ironically enough he’s still doing temporary/contract work. At times I seriously wonder why we even bother to celebrate something that he technically has yet to do. My trip back home was full of nothing but love, laughter and happy memories. I got to catch up with my parents, siblings, cousins, and friends. I also got a chance to visit my mother’s grave for the first time in nearly 3 years. So its not exactly a mystery as to why I’m so excited to go back.Read More »

Starting Fresh.

I’m not even sure where to begin, I haven’t written on my personal blog in so long that I began to wonder if I should even bother trying to set it back up again. I lost all of my old entries and had to set everything up again on (its still a bit of a work in progress). It definitely feels good to be back though! During my extended hiatus I completely stopped writing altogether for quite awhile but I eventually started a private journal to help me get through some things. I still plan to utilize that journal but I’ve missed being able to share things with my friends, acquaintances and even random strangers. I enjoyed the feedback and the interaction that I got from this site and the various topics I covered. I’m really hoping to get back to that level again.Read More »
