New Directions

IMG_2370

Hi, loves!

So I disappeared again, surprise surprise. *womp womp* I do have a few legitimate excuses that you probably don't want to hear. School, work, life.

But more than that, I wanted to take this blog in a new direction. My personal friends know that I've tried every kind of blog imaginable -- makeup, running, crocheting, and now natural hair. I love too many things to stick to just one, and I hoped to make at least one of my blogs into a little at-home business.

But life goes on, and i have different goals. For the first time since I began blogging at around age 17, I want to blog purely for fun, and about EVERYTHING. I want it all on one page -- this page. And I want to share it all with you. My struggles, my triumphs, my day-to-day life and all it entails. I'm tired of labelling this blog, and labelling myself. I just can't put myself in a box and dedicate myself to one thing (though I admire people who can). i'm far too all over the place, and instead of fighting it, I want to run with it! Maybe letting the world see all of my interests instead of just a few will be more interesting.

So, in the spirit of this change, let's talk about my week a little bit. The end of the semester has been CRAZY. I was already behind, held back by depression, anxiety, and other negative things that have the innate ability to drag us all down to the lowest depths of despair. Now I'm catching up, and boy has it been hard. But for the first time in a long while, I'm beginning to enjoy my work again. I'm learning to find pleasure in things I had lost my passion for over time, and it feels wonderful.

The hair is still growing, and getting wilder everyday. I've found that going a little lighter on the gel still gives me the hold I want, but keeps my hair from being too greasy during the week. Fun fact: in my dreams, I always have long, gorgeous natural curly hair. I'm sometimes rather shocked, and a wee bit disappointed, to wake up with this little afro! But I fall in love with it all over again every day, so it works out. :)

In other news, the Mets have been winning (Armageddon, anyone?), though it seems they're about to lose to the Yankees tonight. I'm going to enjoy this while it lasts, and maybe when I'm 80 they'll make it to the World Series, and Ramon and I can sit in the back with our children and grandchildren cheering with those stupid #1 gloves.

Looking for a job at the moment, preferably in a museum so I can work my way up using my research skills. I just know I'm meant to be in a back room somewhere with old documents and files, digging for hidden secrets and discovering the past. I just need someone to see what I can do and hire me to do it. Everything in its own time, I guess...graduating is the first priority.
