Dear lovely readers,
I just wanted to say a quick hello. I know I haven’t been around here much lately, but I promise you all, the haitus will be short. The thing is, out of nowhere, life came and smacked me in the face. Now, I don’t necessarily mean that in a bad way. I actually kind of like periods of intense change, they make life more interesting, and they give you a chance to see things in a new light when everything settles down. Without going into too much detail, here’s what has been going on for me. A very long, intense, and wonderful relationship came to an end about a month ago. This person was a huge part of my life, and was (and still is) someone that I have an incredible amount of love and respect for. It was time for things to change, and I do think it’s all for the best, but that doesn’t make it easy. M, if for some reason you’re reading this, I love you no matter what.
The other major change is that I’m moving from Philadelphia to New York. I’m starting a masters in Occupational Therapy, and I’m really looking forward to this new and exciting chapter in my life. It took me a loooong time to figure out what I wanted to do with myself career-wise, and although this might not be the final stop, it is certainly a next step. I’m thrilled to be moving forward and am practically giddy about staring school again, but I have mixed feelings about the move. Counting school, I’ve been in Philadelphia for eight years, and it has truly become my home. I’ve done a lot of growing up here, and have made friends that I know I’ll keep for life. It’s really starting to hit me that in two weeks, this will no longer be my home base, and as excited as I am for what’s next, I’m feeling very strange about leaving.
So… as you can imagine, I feel a little bit like the rug’s been pulled out from under me. I will try to post when I can, and will definitely get the roundup together for June’s Top Tens within the next couple of days. I just wanted to say, you guys have really been wonderful. Ever since I started the top tens event, I’ve gotten to know a few of you a little better through comments and emails, and I’m loving it! I’ve never really had blogger-buddies before, and go figure, it’s fun! I’m really looking forward to getting to know you guys better, but for now, I just wanted to say thanks.
I’ll be back here soon, even if it’s just a quick note, and keep an eye out for the June Top Tens roundup. Also, I have now become part of the twitter world, and if you’d like, you can follow me. If any of you have twitters, let me know, I’m looking for people to follow!
Well… thank you again for being so great.
