Oh shit you guys, what is this? A BLOG POST! A 2013 update? An apology? A sorry excuse for getting back in the game? Sure, kind of, take yer pick. I missed you to… Let’s ease in to this thing.
I honestly haven’t been up in this space recently at. all. The last thing I published on here was in April a sorry excuse for a post where I told you I killed yet another plant. 2013 was a whirlwind. When I quit my admin job in real estate I floated around the internet, did some freelance thinking, and accepted a position as a paid intern with a digital marketing agency. Two promotions and a year later, I’m carving out a little career path for myself that I quite like. I’m good at my job, but the hours and emotional energy are pretty full on, I guess you could say that I have been “leaning in.” (Sorry, I just rolled my eyes at myself too.)
I didn’t really disappear though, I just found less and less time and brain energy for blogging here. Mind you, I do this exact schtick for clients at work so it’s not like this whole venture was all for naught… and for awhile that was enough for me. But now I’m kind of back, looking for another place to explore and challenge myself and mostly publish with abandon and without approval, write in my voice, and dick around in photoshop for funsies.
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you’ve gathered that my bestie ‘Rooms moved to San Francisco (we said tearful goodbyes to Astoria and Parkside Manor and each other) and I am now shacking up with the hand-holding-man-friend in Deep Queens. It’s OK, studio apartment living as a couple has its perks (rent) and its pitfalls (alone time) but all in all I think we’re doing a pretty decent job of it all.
I’d like this to be the part of this post where I tell you what the big plan is, what you can expect here and how often you can expect it. But fuck it, let’s do it live. No strategy, no real plan, just good ‘ole fashioned fun having. Oh, and I’m probably going to make some changes to the site too, because obviously.
Welcome back, I missed you too.
