Long time, no write.
My life has been both on standstill and full speed ahead for the last several months. I could barely string together a coherent sentence in between the chaos of day-to-day life. My weeks consisted of work and sleep to recover from work, my weekends consisted of cramming as much life experience as possible into two short days.
I missed writing.
I mean, sure, I technically still wrote. I wrote hundreds of emails each week (maybe thousands?) for work, and for a time, I wrote essays and discussion board posts for school. But I really missed writing for me.
Scribbling thoughts on paper.
Typing words in a blog post.
Still, every time I’ve sat my sore bum down to create something, I came up blank. My mind was a blank slate.
I was mortified to find that I had nothing to say.
Until, all at once, my fingers remembered the electric excitement that comes from typing as fast as I can to keep up with the stream of thoughts flooding my mind.
The desire to write, and the prose suddenly found its way back into my heart.
And here I am.
Ready to blog again.
I suppose I should start with an update on my life. I’ve been adventuring. Truly seeking a great perhaps. From road tripping across country to help my friend move, to road tripping all over New England just for fun with my sister, to flying to Prince Edward Island and taking in the glorious sites I’ve dreamed of since I was a young lass –
I’ve been adventuring. And seeking. And soaring.
And now I’m taking a break.
Adventuring is great fun.
But it’s really hard on my old lady body.
So my goal for the next few months is to rest and take ‘er easy.
While also partying it up locally with the friends and fam, of course (I don’t actually know how to rest. I just talk big talk, see.).
I’ve decided the next several great adventures I’ll have will be here in the good ‘ol state of Ohio. Not just because I’m broke from all my other adventures (travel ain’t cheap, I don’t care how many travel bloggers say so), but because there is so much in my own neck of the woods that I have yet to explore.
I’ll do my best to backtrack and chronicle the adventures of 2017, but no promises. I’m still processing everything that I’ve learned, and honestly, lately my trips have become very personal. Each journey has taught me something about myself, something too deep to turn into mere words on a website. I want to cherish this depth a little longer on my own.
But maybe some highlights posts.. cause I managed to take some truly great photos and no longer have an Instagram to share them on.
In any case.
I’m back world.
And I have a lot to say.
What have you been up to for the past three months?
