Starting Again

I spent all of yesterday and most of today trying to decide if I should start over 100% with blogging.  I thought about creating a new name and a brand new site.  I came up with a few ideas, but every time I wrote something down, I came back to this quote; one of my favorites.  “Turn your face towards the sun, let the shadows fall behind you”*.  It was an important mantra when I started this blog 3 years ago as a nervous and naive student in Rome and it’s just as important now, a year and a half out of college, living with someone our second apartment, and working my first full-time job.  I realized that there was no better title and no reason to start 100% over.  Thus I am resurrecting my one time travel blog…ish.  I am starting again.

I’ve been toying with this idea of blogging for awhile.  Mostly, I just don’t see who would want to read about my day-to-day and if no one’s reading, I had a hard time seeing the point in writing.  But, I’ve also been lacking an outlet and needing a hobby and came to realize (with some help and encouragement) that it doesn’t necessarily matter who reads and enjoys this if I enjoy creating it.  So, for now, this is for me.  And you, if you like it.

Since last we met, I graduated from UNH in December 2012, spent 6 weeks driving around the country with my roommate, and now live back in the seacoast area of New Hampshire with my boyfriend, Collin.  We’ve been dating and living together (read: doing ridiculous things) for about 1.5 years.  I’ve been working as a legal assistant for a little over 1 year and still have no idea what I want to be when I grow up.

Here, I plan to recount our weekend adventures, home DIYs, experiments with our recent foray into Vegan-ism, and general hopes/dreams/ideas in the random order that these things tend to come to the surface.

So!  Here’s to a beginning of something.  Here’s to experimenting with something new and picking up something old.  Here’s to you and here’s to me.  Here’s to starting again, for the hell of it.
