Well, the year is half over and I’m finally starting to get the hang of things. . .
My new apartment is finally put together and arranged perfectly, I couldn’t be happier. I’m really glad that I decided to downsize to a smaller studio. Although I lost some serious closet space, it’s a lot less overwhelming when it comes to cleaning and organization. It’s amazing how much happier you can be when you don’t have to worry about so much “stuff”. I’m also really glad to be on the second floor, over looking the pool instead of on the street. Plus, now I don’t have to deal with my obnoxious neighbors in the building next door with their constant playing of Sublime and 311.
I’ve also gotten my blog re-design underway, and I’m pretty much going for the less is more approach. I’m still working on the color scheme and a few other kinks, but it’s coming together quite nicely. (In my opinion at least, considering I don’t know very much about html or coding.) I think the most daunting task is writing the “About Me” section.
I’ve got a ton of great ideas for the blog’s new direction, and have been constantly jotting things down while I’m out and about. I’m pretty excited to share this new chapter of my life with you. Getting sober at 28 is definitely the strangest experience I’ve ever taken on, but it’s brought nothing but great things into my life. I hope to write a book about it one day. But, for now I’ll be sharing it here on the blog. And according to my little counter on the sidebar, I’m 225days booze free! (aka 7 months)
Two weeks ago I decided to put my claws back on, and I’m already regretting it. Haha. They’re just so long and are getting in the way of typing, writing, and random tasks. I don’t know why I always do this to myself thinking it’ll be different the next time around. Sigh.
I’m also working on getting my morning routine down. I think I’m going to try to get some blogging done in the early morning before heading to the office. I guess we’ll see. I just know that I want to be as committed to my [personal] blogging again as I have to giving up alcohol. I just need to make the time for it, and spare some energy for it. It’s been a decade since I began during the days of Livejournal, giving up on it now just seems silly.
I’m hoping to write another post in a little bit, but I need to get ready for my day first.
