Welcome, 2014! (3 Weeks Late)

…Hiiiiii. Should I start this post off commenting on HOW LONG it’s been since I’ve been on here? Or just ignore it like it’s No Big Deal?

I might get into the juicy details later, but let’s just say I sort of lost my mind between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, and my little blog here was a major casualty.

But it’s 2014 now and I’m feeling optimistic, and also my mom has been asking if I’ll ever post again (Hi, Mama! :)) Let me fill you in on a few things that have been going on (and that might explain my total craziness for the last few months).

1. Holidays.

It’s true, The Holidays = major crazy busy time. But is this just an excuse to post a photo of my New Year’s Eve hair? Possibly. True Confession: I do not know how to use a curling iron. I’m 28. On New Year’s Eve, I sat on the toilet while my roommate curled my hair, like I was some sort of woman-child. I’m so thankful she did, though. I felt like Amy Adams in American Hustle.

2. Moving.

Yup, I’ve moved again. I haven’t done this blog for very long, so I haven’t posted much about how moving is basically my most-hated hobby. This is my 7th place since February 2010. But as much of a huge stress as moving is, I’m so happy to be living in a house with other people again. I loved my last little apartment downtown, but I was getting so lonely and weird. I would watch Netflix for hours and only talk to my dog some days. Don’t get me wrong, I still do both of those things, but at least now I have other people around. The new place is shared with 2 of my best friends and is on a different side of town. The last couple of years have been pretty rough, and I loved the idea of having a whole new page to start 2014 on.

3. School.

And speaking of new pages…I’ve started school again! This is the biggest and most exciting/terrifying change I’ve had in my life in a while. It’s crazy that almost 10 years after I started college for the first time, I’m starting again. I’m studying Nutrition & Wellness, which is something I’ve become more interested in and passionate about over the last few years. It’s a big change from English Literature, but luckily I’ve had such wonderful and supportive friends and family that I don’t feel totally insane for doing this. And it helped that all those (pointless) gen ed credits transferred over.

So that’s where I’ve been lately. 2014 is definitely starting off with some major changes, but for the first time in a few years, I’m feeling optimistic about the road ahead. Enjoy your Monday, friends!
