It’s been more than a year since I wrote a post. Technically at least, I had one in the works this summer but I lost it. Don’t ask. I just got my laptop up back and running after some time and the first thing I was excited about was getting back to opening blank word documents and just flowing. Nerdy right?
Anyways, as naturally conceited as I am here’s the past year in a nutshell. I graduated from the greatest university ever, The University of North Carolina, in December. Got an opportunity to run a store with Lids (my long time employer through undergrad), and now am at my second store in Charlotte, NC. I met someone new who is amazing and makes me feel like I’m worth shit again. She’s great, supportive, RELAXED, and just real. It’s going well to say the least. I connected on deeper levels with my family being that I am saving TONS by living at my mom’s…for now. Regular stressors of homework, drama, and anxiety of post grad life are now replaced with getting up in the morning, running a store, employee woes, nagging from my mother, and finding time for a personal life that’s hanging by a thread. I have new goals now and that’s to work in something I feel happy with. I’m okay now, only because I know I’m working towards something (which is the Merchandising Department at my company.) Those of you that know me know that working in fashion merchandising has been a long time dream of mine, so lets just say its becoming more realistic and the ball is in my court. Well, sort of on account of corporate know-hows and the way the world ultimately works out. #LettucePray
I also miss my friends like hell, I miss getting a text at midnight to go grab unhealthy food. I miss random bro sessions to just talk about life. So the group me is more active for sure, and we are all keeping touch as we can. But, you know, that’s life.
Enough about that though!
The direction of this entity known as my blog; I don’t know yet. I’ve never been the one to really have a format. I literally just play a good album and type. Seriously, I’m typing this at a Starbucks in Greensboro waiting for a meeting for work and listening to Joey Bada$$. But nonetheless, I am not sure where I want to take this ship. One thing is for sure; it feels SO GOOD to be writing again. It’s like talking to the audience of your choosing and it can be one person, a million, or no one at all. I mean who just talks to a wall with [semi] correct grammar? So I have a couple things in mind, some more traditional than others but yeah. Not harping too much because then Ill get anxiety and take too long and drop writing again for like the 5th time in two years, and I for one, do not want that haha.
So I know I’ve said this before but hang tight because I’m back in it! For real this time! I have so many thoughts about life, my experiences, music, people, fashion, and so much other crap that I gotta put on paper!
