Welp, I'm back after an unintended hiatus. A lot has happened since I turned 23 last month. I know that life is a constant roller coaster and I'd like to say that mostly I'm efficient at riding them, although NOT in real life! About a week and a half ago, I lost/left my job. Anyone who has known me knows that I don't mind leaving a job- I will not stay with it if I don't like it. Working a dead end job isn't one of my priorities... I'm a passionate person, and I have a hard time faking anything.

When I brought up my 3 week honeymoon/road trip, it quickly became the talk of the office and warehouse. It got uncomfortable and dramatic, and I felt I had no other choice but to walk away. It has really hit me hard because I loved that job. I loved my coworkers. It gave me experience and it paid well. For the first time, I didn't dread going to work every day.

Even while I was working, I still dreamed of employing myself full-time. That's been a dream of mine for a long time, but I was finally getting to the mindset that I was going to keep working until Corey got back from deployment, was going to save all of my money, was going to focus all of my free time on building up my home business. (Mind you, it is still in the works!) Now my path has changed dramatically, and I'm just going to take it as it comes.


I didn't intend for this post to be me babbling on about losing my job and feeling directionless, but more about creating a direction. Sometimes it all feels hopeless, BUT IT'S NOT. Sometimes I don't know where I'm going, BUT I DO. I sorta pride myself on being resilient, and it's time to jump back in to life. I created this blog because I was inspired by other blogs, and because I know that I have something to offer. I may be lacking in the "content" department, but I think it's because I've read too many articles on blog content. I understand that my posts should interest my readers and attract new ones, but it should be what I care about.

When I first got into reading blogs, I was big on popular style blogs (I won't name names) but I quickly realized and resented how structured they were. They were just too "perfect". Obviously, if ModCloth sent me adorable clothes in the mail I would happily review them and wear them all the time. I don't really know where I'm going with this, but I've just been thinking a lot about what I want my blog to reflect. As I was falling asleep one night, I thought, "What are you stressing about? Just be yourself!" I'm not a structured person. I hate living by a schedule, I don't like a lot of repetition, and there are more important things going on than the color of my nails... Even though it is nice to have cute nails sometimes.

I need a new "About Me" page, since I wrote mine before I even wrote my first blog post. And lots has changed since I wrote that. I'd like a new layout. There is way too much going on on my page! There are going to be some changes coming up so please stick with me!

Also, I wanted to say thank you to all of my 18 readers! As that number rises, I do think about what you guys want to see and read. I hope to keep building friendships with all of the lovely girls I have encountered through Blogger. <3
