A year ago, I was sitting in my day job reading a bunch of healthy living blogs and feeling really bored. It was a really boring job. Life had become this series of 8-hour work days and long nights in grad school with little else besides Jesse to fill my limited spare time. Granted, Jesse is a good companion for my spare time, but I was feeling like I had nothing of my own. I’m a girl who likes a project or a long-term goal to keep me moving. That wasn’t happening. I needed something.
Ah, but alas! I could just start a blog! I could write about mental health and other things that interest me. If you go back to the first posts (they’re pretty bad), you can kind of tell I was having a hard time finding my groove. Turns out, the posts people really liked were the ones I was passionate about – mental health. So, I started gearing almost all of my content towards that end. I couldn’t be happier.
Granted, little blog still has a lot more growing to do. I’m looking forward to the next chapter of my life and what that means for the content on here. My job (when I get one) will be my number one priority, but I am determined to keep this blog a part of my life. I find it cathartic and while some days I’m wiped and I know I need to write a post, I’ll do it anyway because I love it.
I’m glad to share this little slice of internet with you.
