So, it's been a while since I've posted much on here. I want to start posting more - it's just hard finding the time to write or even do any sort of photography right now. Working full time and focusing on my novel has been rather time consuming, but it's been good.
Since my last journal posting over six months ago, a lot has happened. For one thing, exactly two months from today I'll finally be moving out of my parents' home and into my own apartment. I'm really looking forward to it! I'll be living with two of my best friends who are more like sisters to me which is awesome.
Work is going well. My manager is helping me work towards becoming a Finical Service Representation. I even opened an account this past Friday. Admittedly, it could have gone a lot better but it could have also gone a lot worse. Hey, I'm still learning, but it's going good.
I've gotten back into my writing. It hasn't been as much as I want lately, but to some extent, that's to be expected with getting everything in order to move out. Still, I'm really grateful for a super great friend. He and I reconnected over last summer and when he was back in town over Christmas we made a, I guess you could say, pact to get back into writing. With him being in the Navy he hasn't been able to do as much writing as I have, but with each of us calling each other every couple of weeks it's sort of held some accountability for me. I know he's going to ask about how my writing is going and I like being able to give him good reports. It was hard at first to get back into it, but over the last couple of months I've come to realize that I really enjoy writing again. At first it felt awkward and strange and I was wondering if I had lost my passion for it, but lately, it's been like returning to an old love. I'm back in my writing and things are good.
Truthfully, I think I have a ways to go to get back to where I once was and where I want to be, but things are going well and seems like things are finally starting to fall into place for once (I just hope this isn't a case where the other shoe falls - like it did about this time last year...).
Other than all that, I'm heading to Disney World in about two weeks for a family vacation. It's going to be a lot of fun! It's also the first major trip that I've been able to pay for completely out of my own pocket. Hopefully I'll be able to update you all on the trip once I get back.
So, if anyone is still watching me, what have you all be up to?
