So here I am. A fresh start with a fresh blog. I had to delete my old blog because it was all about wedding planning. I could no longer blog about wedding planning because I’m no longer engaged. I’m no longer engaged because on Christmas Day my then-fiance confessed he’d been using meth for about a year and he had been lying about it. I broke off the engagement and had to figure out how to start over.
Several weeks and much drama later (read: stolen car/TV/laptop/passport, therapy sessions, and crying myself to sleep for many nights) I’ve decided it is time to come back to life. I came back to my job as a high school media specialist after a 2-week leave. I’ve gotten rid of my apartment and am currently test driving vehicles to replace my car. I’m starting to feel a little like my old self (I’ve even made it 3 days in a row without crying!).
I‘ll be testing this guy tonight
But I missed blogging. I missed sharing my wedding planning adventure with others and reading their comments/ideas/support. So I’m back. Back to the blogosphere. I don’t have a specific blogging purpose in mind, so this will be slightly more random. I’ll be rambling about how to figure out life as a newly-single 20-something who lives in the frigid upper Midwest. If you want me to be more specific, I’ll probably write about recovering from my life falling apart, DIY ideas and projects (I’m not super crafty, but I like to try), recipes (ditto with the crafting thing, but with cooking), ideas for school, and (hopefully someday) dating. I’ll just consider myself part Carrie Bradshaw, part Martha Stewart, and part Sybil (like I said, this might be slightly schizophrenic and random).
Here we go. It’s time to live again.
