It feels odd clicking the button, “New Post,” when I haven’t clicked that button in so long… Nearly a year in fact. I don’t know why I stopped posting, why I stopped sharing my thoughts. I still write and I still have a passion for writing, but something took hold in me and next thing I knew, I was making excuses for why I couldn’t post anything, or why I didn’t want to. I think that the bottom line is that I didn’t want to embarrass myself, I didn’t want anyone to read this piece of my life and think it was foolish, and I was realizing that some of my passions were changing. I had a go at the whole “fashion blogging” thing, but I think that I’ve outgrown that, at least for now. So where am I now, a year later? It’s been quite a while since I’ve consistently posted, like a really long time, but here I am. You might not hear from me for another long while, but I’m showing up right now. I am living in Alabama with three of my best friends, I am a teacher at an Elementary School, and I am living the life I’ve always wanted, the life that I have dreamed of. Post grad is hard, but I am making it through. My first year out of post grad was really difficult in terms of adjusting to the new change, but now I feel a little more confident in what I am doing. I am keeping busy and I’ve slowly become more outgoing as I’ve been living out of college. I’ve also been writing a lot of poetry. It makes me laugh typing that for you to read because I used to hate writing and poetry, yet here I am. I have really grown a love for writing poetry, for weaving in symbolism, and for portraying messages that are on my heart. The weather is getting cold, the leaves are changing, and life is good. Every day isn’t the best day ever, but there is something wonderful in everyday. I am still pinching myself, trying to come to terms that October is nearly half way over and 2020 is just around the corner. How is life moving by so quickly? Where is it all going? Anyways, I think that this is pretty sufficient for a life update…October is good. Life is good. I don’t know when I am going to write next, when I’ll feel inclined to share again, but I’ll talk to you soon.
