My Reading Challenges for 2017

So last year, I decided to try to do a bunch of reading challenges (probably too many) to help me get back in the habit of reading again. While I managed to keep up my habit (mostly), I also learned my limitations and weaknesses. For example, reading 5-10 books a month is probably not gonna happen. Same with doing 5+ reading challenges, it’s unlikely. So now that I’ve discovered my boundaries I think I can manage to try to do this again, hopefully Continue reading

One Year Later…

T Minus 0 Weeks

This year. Has. Been. Rough. Just some highlights include: my cat getting cancer and losing a leg (she’s better now), barely skating anymore, and losing my job. So, fun times. All that along with other things have really demotivated me from doing anything that wasn’t either Continue reading

Start of Something New

About a month ago my mom and I found a note on our door telling us we had until the end of October to move out. While we really weren’t happy where we were living (and that’s an understatement) it was still a shock. We had to move and we had no plans.

Over the course of the month we went to look at apartment after apartment. Being limited by money and location, we were left with few options. After weeks of looking and stress, our third offer was accepted (third time’s the charm, right?).Β Those weeks left us with little time. We are still undergoing the application process with the association and won’t be out before the end of the month. Thankfully, because we had a place locked down, we were given some extra time to finalize the details and move.

The place we are going is small. Like really, really small. But our plan is to spend the year budgeting, saving, and searching for a bigger, better, more permanent home. With this major change, I hope to start a domino effect of change in my life. I am not very happy where I am in both my professional career and personal endeavors. I feel stuck and out of place.

I plan to spend the upcoming 52 weeks (with the countdown beginning when we move) figuring out my place and purpose, and sharing it with all of you of course.Β My goal is to end the year happier and with a better understanding of my future direction. I also plan on just sharing my passions and every day journey (which is sure to be full of geekery and roller derby).
