Long time, no post.
Since my last post, lots of good things have happened:
- my sister got married
- I had about 22 life crises — all pointing me back to the fact that I want to be a journalist and that I can only get there if I’m willing to try my hardest but not know if I’m going to make it (get into grad school, have an editor like my pitch, etc.)
- I made it to the rest day before my half marathon — this is the closest to actually running this distance of an event ever — I’m going to do it!
- I got honest with myself and the people in my life about how overwhelmed I’m feeling and how out of whack it’s making me (I’ve been doing way more eating than playing and have been so stressed and cranky that there’s been little love).
- I had an amazing Thanksgiving weekend filled with friends
- I got hair extensions — I feel like a girl again!
- I started volunteering at the Gazette again. You can see my stuff in Thursday’s paper — an article about money left over from bus pass refunds and my pumpkin creation featured on page 6 and in Friday’s — a brief about research funding on page 2.
- I posted my pumpkin deliciousness on the Runners Feed website. It was cool to take the photos myself and actually try to make them look yummy–now I see what it takes to be a ‘legit’ food blogger.
“It isn’t necessary to know exactly how your ideal life will look; you only have to know what feels better and what feels worse…Begin making choices based on what makes you feel freer and happier, rather than on how you think an ideal life should look. It’s the process of feeling our way toward happiness, not the realization of the Platonic ideal, that creates our best lives.”
What’s new with you readers? Did ya miss me?
