Back to the Blogosphere


(source)

I'm baaaack!

After an exciting week traveling 17 hours from Pennsylvania to southern Arkansas, I'm ready to come back to blogging. :) Thank you to everyone for sticking with me and my random (but thankfully short!) break.

I start my new job today! I'm now working with a pretty big agriculture company, thus the big move to rural Arkansas. It has its perks and downfalls, just like every new place. I think I'll get used to everything in time, though. The big thing for me is that I am literally 3-6 hours away from any of my friends! It's scary, but I'm pretty excited to start this new adventure in my life.

The couch and an end table still haven't come in yet, but I'm hoping once my house is totally finished, I can show y'all some photos! It's weird moving from the "college kid" phase to the "young adult" phase in terms of decorating and organizing an apartment. I'm not too thrilled in decorating my house in neutrals as opposed to the bright pinks and oranges I'm accustomed to, but I'm trying to not be so much like a kid. It's HARD, let me tell you! There are still pieces of my colorful flair around the house, but it's not the pink room of random from my college days.

I've been grocery shopping and new work clothes shopping and random fun things shopping. Sometimes it feels like the getting ready never ends. My to-do list looks like a massive, scribbling bit of trash. Oh well, I'm hoping everything will fall into place smoothly after my first week in town and on the job!

Get ready for me to come back to the world of blogging! I have some things planned and I'm excited to continue writing and reading what everyone has been up to! :D

PS. I am completely invested in these Olympics. I cannot get enough, especially of Men's swimming, boxing, and gymnastics. Yuuuum!
PPS. Was anyone else compeltely amazed when hundreds of Mary Poppinses descended and beat Voldemort?! I was rolling on the floor laughing when I watched it.

Hope you have a great Monday!

  4. Ooo congrats on your new job! It's always exciting to start out a new chapter. I'm excited to her how it goes. And I totally feel you on the Olympics. I have accomplished nothing in the last few evenings because I just park it on the couch and cannot stop watching!

    1. It was during the hospital scene with all the children. Like, 40 foot Voldemort came during a "nightmare" then all the Mary Poppins ladies flew down on umbrellas and defeated him. IT WAS AWESOME!

      Thank you! Can't wait to hear how your master's program goes when you start it. :)
