I thought it would be fitting to post today, which is my twenty-sixth birthday. One thing that fell by the wayside over the past year was this blog which seemed to become more of a hassel than the enjoyment that I always thought I would gain from it. When I felt the desire to write something today I felt it was time, perhaps, to start back on my small slice of the internet, or maybe write for this one single post, whatever it is I'm looking for, I am writing now because it makes me happy.
I never seem to make New Years resolutions but I do like to take stock of my year and reflect on what has happened the year before right around this time. This year has been filled with many ups and downs as most years are. Over the past year I landed my dream job and have been working there for about eight months, it is one thing that truly changed everything surrounding how I felt about life after college. They say its hard to get up everyday and go to a job you hate, I lived in that reality for three years. This opportunity has brought me incredible happiness, it was a breath of fresh air when I needed it most. Don't get me wrong! Is it perfect, of course not, no job is. I can sometimes work 60-70 hours week for months and the stress can be mentally and physically daunting but when I wake up every morning and look forward to my day, I know I hit the jackpot professionally.
My personal life is something left to be desired. I've been in a distance relationship for about 5 years with still no end in sight. It's a battle that we continue to work through each and every day. Along with that my body seems to hate everything I put in it regardless of how healthy or unhealthy it is. Saying that it has been an uneasy six months would be a total lie, as its been horrible. I haven't felt like myself since November. I keep hoping that one of these doctors will tell me something of merit that actually makes me feel better but as of lately that has yet to happen.
When I look back though and see what great things have happened over this past year, I'm proud of my accomplishments. I spent the past three years getting to where I am today professionally and I could not be happier. Is everything perfect? Of course not, nothing ever is, but I will continue to work through my problems. I will continue to find the time I need for myself to heal and things will improve.
That is all I have for now, until next time.
