Sometimes the universe works in funny ways. I say that because a friend just messaged me for advice on how to find time to write, praising my commitment to consistency in my writing practice... Which is sort of funny, because I have been pretty terrible at that lately. It reminded me that I honestly have NOT made find the time to write a priority lately, letting my thoughts jumble around in my brain like mismatched play-do blended into one big lump, and leaving this space blank.
And so, here I am! That was the kick in the booty I needed I guess.
It's not that I didn't miss writing here (and writing in general); I have. I always do when I'm absent from it for a while. I just have been running around like a crazy person the past couple of weeks, which has made it harder to prioritize.
When we got back from New Orleans, I started my new job the very next day, and then my parents came to visit the next day after that, and were here for a week. Between spending time with them and just trying to stay afloat learning the ins and outs of my new position, life has been busier than it has in a long time. I forgot what this office/commuting life is like!
Also, high heels all day? The worst.
...Don't tell my physical therapist I'm doing that.
I love my new job, but it's definitely a lot. As in, always busy... or at least, right now it is, as I get settled and have some pressing projects right out of the gate. I've also been trying to nail down my fitness routine, because without yoga/running/spin/SOMETHING resulting in sweat, I feel like an insane person, and can't process stress throughout the rest of my day. My favorite yoga studio is unfortunately not in a convenient location for my commute, and the spin studio I used to go to in Newport doesn't exist up here, so it's been a couple weeks of experimenting with studios and timing and traffic. Corepower Yoga, if you're reading this, please open new studios in LA. ;)
And that's it! My ramble for the day. I love and appreciate you all for reading my words, even when it's just a mind purge like this.
