Here’s what I’ve been up to over the last 9 months for inquiring minds who’d like to know.
January 2, 2018 – I bought a slice of the American Dream and became a first time homeowner! A two-story townhouse style condo with mountain views, and it couldn’t be more perfect.
February, 2018 – Celebrated my 2 year anniversary with world’s greatest boyfriend, and moved on to the next level of our relationship, co-habitation in our new home.
March, 2018 – Spent normal blogging and living hours preparing for the SHRM-SCP exam. For those that don’t know, it’s sort of a drivers license for those working in Human Resources. Goal still in progress.
April, 2018 – Started a new chapter in my career and a new job with a local non-profit company. It has been a breath of fresh air in so many ways. You can’t put a price on that kind of day to day living.
May, 2018 – Took a break from literally everything.
June, 2018 – I showed up.
July, 2018 – I turned 34, and I finally rode a unicorn.
August, 2018 – I saw Pearl Jam with my boyfriend for the first time at Wrigley Field! Between this and the Queen concert last summer, we’re practically married.
September, 2018 – I am on day 10 of a bad sinus cold and figured, this is a good of a time as any to start blogging with you again.
Looking back on the last 9 months, I guess it wasn’t so much procrastination as it was just trying to keep up with life. While I started new chapters and new beginnings, some people I knew ended theirs or starred in their own tragedy. While I kept working on investing myself in some relationships, I grew out of others. I learned a lot this year as well about time, and how important it is to spend it wisely. People are the only thing that matter.
In the words of American Philosopher Don Marquis, “Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.” That’s exactly where I feel I have been. Where have you been? Catch me up.
PS: Even though it’s been 9 months and there’s all this talk about fetuses, NO, I am not pregnant.
