Well, as I foreshadowed in the beginning, this blogging gig might have been just a phase. Although this might have lasted slightly longer than the guitarist phase, it was not by much. It has been about 9 months since I last sat down and wrote on here. Partially because I didn’t want to post my thoughts for the world to read (lets be real- have you seen my blogging stats? the world is not reading my thoughts), partially because I didn’t want to keep writing updates on my life, and partially because I didn’t know what to write about. However, I have recently gotten over all of those internal disputes and decided I wanted to start writing for myself. I always love reading the blogs I wrote months back and the writing process is pretty therapeutic.
A lot has happened in the past 9 months. I completed my summer internship, visited my family on the east coast, made a pit stop in New York to spend time with my best friend, drove to California with my roommate and had the best acai bowl of my life, experienced my first college football season as a legal adult, took a Senior class trip to Las Vegas, visited my best friend a few times in Tucson, spent Christmas with my family, celebrated my Grandfathers 93rd birthday in New Jersey (in the middle of January), and road tripped to Sedona with 9 of my close friends. Needless to say it has been an adventure.
2015 was a crazy year. So many great things happened and I had so much fun. Of course, I am not going to post about all of my hardships for the world to see however, there were some of those as well. Luckily I have some of the best people around me reminding me there is so much to be thankful for! As I am now in my last semester of college, I find myself looking around and paying closer attention to the little things that have been a blur these past 21 years of my life. If you stumbled across this post you probably know sappy is a fair description of my character. So when you throw a huge life change in the picture it is a given there is going to be a lot of sap going on. Even hiking A mountain gets me teary-eyed.
Every time people ask me about about my ‘plan’ (which let me tell you happens a lot when you are about to graduate college) I joke about going through a quarter-life crisis. I laugh it off and then panic a little inside about this whole plan thing I am supposed to have. I have a job and great roommates lined up however, I feel like I am far from having anything figured out. 21 seems a little young for life to just throw you out in the real world, just saying. Anyways- life is good, apparently I am an adult, I would recommend taking a day trip to Sedona, and my best friend Leslie recently gave me some really good advice and told me every situation in life can be a little better if you have the right perspective. Peace and blessings.
