Blogging again routinely has been fun. I’m healthier and perhaps happier when I’m writing more consistently, though I do enjoy my breaks. Maybe it keeps my mind focused on fun places I like to imagine and not on things in this world I can’t change, like the fact that I’m still living between family and friends.
I miss living alone, being financially independent. I hate being a constant guest, though my family is on vacation and I am living alone for a month. But I have built this life myself since I was the one who turned down a couple job offers this year: the AOL job for Patch I tried out a couple times and a reporter’s position at a very good weekly newspaper.
The reason I turned them down is that I want to finish the project I’ve been working on all year, a multi-media story about my local animal shelter where I volunteered for about three years. It’s a very meaningful project to me. I am so grateful to have an amazing editor working with me. Right now, I am receiving data via the Freedom of Information Act to complete the project.
I can’t wait to share when it publishes late in the year.
Personally, I’m good. I’m recently in a relationship and we’re having a very good summer.
I’m going to be going through some changes at my website and blog soon, but hopefully there won’t be too much dust during reconstruction.
And thanks for all the sugar for The Seasons series:)
