24 Jan Hello Again!
Hello again! I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since I’ve blogged. Last May was the last time I’ve updated anything on here and to say it’s exciting/strange/shocking/exhilarating to be back is an understatement. To be honest, I had kind of given up on myself as far as this old blog is concerned. Lack of motivation, being tired ALL THE TIME, and life in general left me no time or energy to do anything but take care of my business in Nicaragua and come home to veg out. Not to mention my emotions were all over the place. Now that my energy is back up and I’m back home in the Windy City (for now), I think it’s a good time to get back to writing and documenting m y life. That was the sole purpose of creating this blog in the first place. A way for me to look back in 10 years to see how I’ve grown, what I was doing with my life and how I felt in that moment. It’s so easy to lose sight of that goal especially when life gets in the way but I have to keep in mind how beneficial writing is for me. It’s my best form of communication. I’m not much of a talker and sometimes it’s hard for me to verbalize how I feel in a way that others can understand. On paper it’s different. But that’s what makes the world go round right? We’re all so different. It’d be a boring place if we were all the same.
A lot has changed since I last gave an update on here. Especially within myself. It was very much a monumental year. I get into more detail in a later post but I’m so grateful that I got to have such an awesome and enriching experience. I actually ended up going back to Nicaragua at the beginning of October and I just made it home about two weeks ago. So I’m slowly but surely getting back into my routine. I kinda gave myself a week to just get into the swing of things. It’s strange going back to this routine when I spent a year doing something completely different. That was only chapter 1 though! My goal is to make chapter 2 happen real soon…..
I have a lot of plans and goals for this year but among them is getting back to blogging and being more consistent with it. I have high hopes for my little piece of the internet. 2017 will be a good year! I’m excited to share my journey with you all. It’s nice to be back. Have a good rest of the week! Talk to you soon!
