I haven’t blogged much in the last few years. I have tried purchasing domains to put some money into it, but the computer situation has basically been nonexistent. The laptop I’ve owned for the last several years is actual garbage. The keys would always stick. It was slow. But, it was a PC, so what does one expect?
Today that all changes. I am the very happy owner of a MacBook Air, and I can already feel the excitement. I have seriously missed writing. So much. But I’ve always preferred the blogging format, and typing things out. It’s just been damn near impossible lately.
Currently, I’m soul searching.
Jon, A, and I have all been trying to save to move to Oregon. At the same time, Jon and I are saving for our anniversary trip to Disneyland in September. We’re staying at a property hotel, and we’re both really excited. But, this is obviously more expensive.
Not eating out has been our biggest challenge, but we’ve pretty much gotten that down to once per week. We’ve been making dinner together every night after work, and I’m really enjoying it.
Recipe posts are probably in this blogs future.
I know Oregon is going to be great for all of us, and I’m very excited to go. At the same time, I know I need to go back to school. I’m not going to be satisfied with myself or my life without that piece of paper that says I’m educated. I know it seems stupid, but as much as I won’t admit it out loud, I do very much care what people think.
It’s because of this that I sometimes struggle with blogging. I read several different blogs, and they vary. Some are clean cut and almost professional, others are not. For the longest time, I tried to attain this image of “perfect blogger.” Personal, but not too personal.
That’s not my style.
I would hope that those I know in real life never find this place, but hey, if they do, good for them. You’ve opened the arsenal that is my brain, and it’s not for everyone.
I’m not gonna hold back here. I’m gonna pour it all out, because that’s what my blog is for. I have been guilty of oversharing my entire life, but you know what? Fuck it.
This blog is not for children.
