Reflections: the end of August and the beginning of a new life

The last time I posted on here was during my July Blogging challenge, which unfortunately went belly up during our family vacation. I tried to keep it going, but things just got too busy. Which is, ultimately, the reason I always give when I stop blogging: I just don’t have the time. This reason is hardly ever true. Blogging isn’t what you would call a major time commitment, but it is easier to say that it is than to sit down and actually think about what I want to say.

Life has been a bit crazy and unpredictable. You might even say that I was living up to my blog’s title – I have no planned plot, and no idea what I’m doing. Flying by the seat of my pants, mostly, and it was most evident in the events of last month. Let’s list them, shall we?

  • I got semi/sort of diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.
  • I quit my job, giving no notice.
  • I went on an unplanned trip to Florida to visit family.
  • I opened an Etsy store.
  • I started writing captions with Rev.
  • I went back to auditions for the theatre group that I’ve done shows with before.
  • My daughter went back to school for 8th grade.
  • I started a brand new job.

Those last two items both happened at the same time and both were just last week. The new job was a bit of a whirlwind. Interview Wednesday, second interview Friday, start Monday. So far, I think it’s going well. I like my co-workers and the office is very nice. Still learning all of my duties, so there’s some downtime right now, which feels strange since I’m used to running full speed. I’m also used to knowing my job inside and out, so this is all a bit new.

I’m hoping things will work out better this time. I’m hoping I can find some things to help my body work better. I’m going to use this blog to track some of my progress, in addition to the book reviews and other shenanigans. Going into September, I am setting a new blogging goal, not with prompts, but to try and find more positive things to write about, whether they are books or other things going on in my life.

I’ve been mired in negativity for too long.

It’s time to really change that.
