Apparently, I have a blog that I should log on to and update every once and a while. Instead of making excuses of why I haven’t been fully present lately, I’m just going to own it and tell it like it is. I’m in a bit of a funk, y’all.
I feel like I’m slowly snapping out of it … and I assure you that I’m not planning to log off anytime soon, but I will say that my desire to wake up with the sunrise and type away every morning has faded. For now.
Life has been super confusing over the past six months, and I still feel like I am in a transition-mode while I try and figure everything out.
(I documented cooking this delicious meal on Snapchat today!
I’ve never experienced as many life changes as I have in the last year. It seems crazy when you really think about it. For those of you who are newer to the blog and don’t understand what I’m talking about, you can catch up here, here, and here.
So yeah … life is nuts and completely unpredictable. Don’t be confused, however, I’m not complaining. I feel extremely blessed that we live in a beautiful area, we have food on the table every day, and we have somehow learned to survive in one of the most expensive cities out there!
Scott and I have been living in New York for almost two months now, and life is good. I am still interviewing and looking for full-time work, and so is Scott, but he is keeping busy by working nights at a nice restaurant in Manhattan.
I met with a great group of NYC bloggers last night (more on our dinner coming soon!), and meeting them and talking about what exactly I plan on doing here in the city really made me think.
There’s so many avenues I could take and pursue that it’s slightly overwhelming.
A lot of people assume that I will be working in the fitness industry, which isn’t something that I have ruled out. Truth is, I would love to work in a studio environment every day, even full-time. I haven’t been looking in that direction, however, because I have also wanted to pursue what I went to school for (Advertising & Media). There’s really no better place to get into that industry again than here, and that excites me.
Some people ask if I plan on dancing again, and my initial answer is no. Of course there is a distant dream of trying out for the Knicks City Dancers or even audition for The Rockettes (dream big, right?), but I just feel like that ship has sailed. As tempting as that is, I feel like it’s time to move on with a different career.
I currently spend my days applying for jobs, interviewing, meeting friends all over the city, piecing our apartment together, running through the parks, and inadvertently obsessing over what I’m doing … or not doing.
Basically, that translates to doing everything but blogging.
Most days I don’t feel like I have much to post about, which is actually the opposite of reality. We just moved to New York City, so my photo storage on my phone is maxed out from taking pictures of everything we do!
I’m not sure where the upcoming months will bring me, but I sure am ready for them to get here. After taking a small hiatus from the bog, I’m happy that my goal is to get back to regular posting again. I truly love sharing healthy living tips, recipes, workouts, and weekend whereabouts here, and my intention was never to back away as often or as long as I did.
Going from posting ten to one or two posts a week just seems weird to me. So for that, and all of the inconsistencies that have taken place around here lately, I apologize. And, I’m so glad that you’ve stuck around!
With that, I’m going to sign off and get back to one of the many half-written posts I have drafted to share with you soon.
I appreciate each and every one of you who checks in here!
See you in the morning!
