Hello Blogging World!
First off, I would like to apologize for neglecting my blog for almost a month. I'll admit, I totally FAILED...sorry :)
But I'd like to believe I have a few good reasons- I'm a new woman! Well, kinda... I actually hate that expression. It makes me think of life in the 1950's and buying a new shade of lipstick or something. My changes have been a little more profound- or so I hope.
First off, I reactivated my Facebook account. Now I KNOW how ridiculous this sounds but it was actually a really big step for me. I hate Facebook. My list of reasons why could probably be turned into a novel so I won't bother to list them here- but I did have a few positive reason's to add it back, which I'll share:
1. I did not have a good way to keep in touch with old college friends. When I first deleted my FB I thought I would just call people more and have "better and deeper" conversations with friends because it would be over the phone- but the truth is, sometimes there's a lot to be said about a quick note letting someone know you are thinking about them. AKA Facebook wall post.
2. I was meeting a lot of new people in the city who would coordinate events with friends on Facebook...meaning I was missing the memos/get-togethers because they had no way to send me an invite.
3. The last reason ties into my 2nd big life change:
I have FINALLY moved out of my parents house and into an apartment, in San Francisco, with a really fantastic roommate...who I found through Facebook (a friend of mine since junior high (let's call her "A") posted that her friend from college (let's call her "H") needed a roommate and a mutual friend of mine and A's found it on Facebook and passed to me...phew, what a confusing explanation!)
Anyway, the point is I am living on my own, once again, but this time for good- and with an awesome roomie. I can't tell you how good I feel about this life choice and I know I am going to finally feel like I am doing things on my own instead of relying on my family all the time. And please believe, I will be posting pictures of our cute little apartment as we start decorating!
The last life change, I am single for the first time since High School. Now most of you who follow my blog might be confused by this- "what you were dating someone? How come you never talked about it on your blog?". Well, great question. Honestly, I used to be really open about this kind of stuff in the past, but then I found that when I would break up with whoever I was dating at the time, everyone would know and want to talk about it with me- which I hate. I don't like to talk about things that are upsetting me, I never have.
The other reason, I felt like it made it more special keeping it to myself. I know a lot of people may not understand this, but I really liked knowing that I had one person in my life that was just for me- and that our time together was just for us. It was nice not having to talk about what we were doing all the time and show off- I could just enjoy every moment to myself. Maybe this is selfish, and I know this was always an issue for the BF, but it's really how I felt at this point in my life.
So to all of you who stuck around during the post-less month, thank you. I truly love all of my followers and I LOVE reading all of the sweet comments you guys post. I am beyond excited that life is settling down a bit and that I get to start reconnecting with all of you!
