It’s been a little while since I last wrote. Let’s be honest, it’s been quite a while. I’ve been avoiding you. I could blame it on the holidays (went great, thanks for asking), the boy, apartment hunting (finally ended today) or my oh-so-hectic social life (LIE!) but the truth is I’ve felt like I have nothing worth saying.You know that moment when you put pen to paper or you rest your fingers on the keys and you think,“Nope. Nothing there. I have nothing to say.”
PULL IT TOGETHER, SELF! It’s blogging. People bullshit through blogs all day. I’ll do my best.
Let me tell you about 2012 and all I accomplished.
1. None of 2012 goals which were:
a. Develop 5 creative writing pieces and submit them to magazines
b. Take Spanish classes
c. Take business classes –learn to make a business plan
2. Changed jobs at the same company twice:
a. Research Project Administrator-a role I didn’t really enjoy but love, love, loved the team I worked on.
b. Human Resources Coordinator- a role I really like although I wish I was learning more. One thing at a time! It’s lonely only working with my manager but I really like her so I think it’s for the best.
3. Moved to this awesome apartment with a view of the Austin capital. It’s older, big and beautiful. And I’ll be moving again at the end of the month. My roommate’s getting married. Married people, you’re ruining my life.
I hate moving. Shoot me now. Anyone want to buy a couch?
4. I rode in the MS150 which is a bike ride from Houston to Austin to raise money for MS. I’m doing it again in 2013. Unfortunate side effects of this ride:
a. I got in way better shape than I have ever been in thus raising the bar for me.
b. I then stopped exercising after the MS150 and gained all the weight back plus some.
c. I now have to do it all over again. All I can think about is how cold it is (Texas cold = 50F) so I don’t want to exercise. But riding 166 miles is hard and I should really buck up and get on a bike. Like right now. I want to be like this:
Because I was entirely unable to accomplish a single goal for 2012, I feel it would be ridiculous to set any 2013 goals. So come on 2013! I have no focus or purpose- bring me whatever you got!
