Lately I've been a little busy. Okay, really busy. I feel like I'm barely keeping up with everything, constantly at odds with some portion or another of my life. Work has been crazy. I have an internship that I love, but it keeps me very busy as well. In whatever spare time I can find I work out, just because that helps me
de-stress and makes me happy. And then at the end of every day I'm just exhausted, but I never have time to get enough sleep. I've been trying to spend time with family and friends, but that hasn't been happening nearly as much as I'd like. I read somewhere (or a million different places) that your twenties are for flailing, for making mistakes, and for figuring out who you are. If that's true then apparently I am right on track.
Lately I've also been on the job hunt. I've had this longing to move to Chicago for years. Since high school in fact. I looked at colleges in Chicago, but the private school I wanted to attend ended up being too expensive and I fell back on the University of Minnesota. I had a lovely time there, but now that I've finished my undergrad this feeling has come back again. I want to move to Chicago. I've found over the years that I learn and grow much more when I'm in a new environment. I feel like life in Minneapolis has become a little stagnant and a little uninspired. So in the rest of my spare time (ha!) I've been searching for jobs in Chicago.
Then there's this little blog, which I have been neglecting much more than I like to think about. I either don't have time to write, or when I do have time, I have no energy to compose a post inspiring or coherent enough to publish. To be honest, I've sometimes wondered whether or not I should keep daydreamer. I know I should, and I will, because I love being a part of this wonderful community of inspiring people. And when I do have time and energy to write, it's so much fun, and so refreshing to discuss the things that inspire me and the topics that are important to me.
Erin Gates wrote a post earlier this week on being in your thirties. Erin's post focused on the decision to have children and the judgement and difficulties that often come with the fact that she doesn't have any kids yet at age 33. She is such an inspiration and has an amazing career, but I have a feeling that if Erin wrote a post on being in your twenties when she was 23, she would have said she was flailing a bit, too. I guess every decade has brand new challenges that come along with it. And so far my twenties have been a mix of confusion and inspiration as I try to figure out my life.
Please know that I don't mean to complain. I realize I have so many things to be thankful for and I am always counting my blessings. But honesty is the best policy when it comes to blogging, and lately I've been a little stressed. So bear with me if you will. Posts may be a little sporadic for the time being, but I'll still be here. You guys are the best.
