For starters, I'd like to give a big HELLO to all of you new readers!!!!!
It wasn't until now that I actually realized I haven't posted anything in quite some time.
Online outlets like Twitter, Facebook, and even Blogger can cause us to get so caught up in the
"who has the most followers" hype that we miss the point of it all....that is, if there is actually a point. lol
I've noticed lately that the blogosphere has gradually shifted from my outlet of expression to a burden,
where the organic drive to post whatever inspires me or comes to mind seems to suddenly be irrelevant.
Writing has never been this way for me, which is why I guess I've been on a bit of a hiatus.
I needed some time to breathe, to collect my thoughts and not get sucked into the tech-obsessed world that is such a huge part of our culture.
As crazy as it may sound, I've actually noticed a lot of personal growth that has occurred
in this pull back from social media......and I like it. lol
I've had the opportunity to actually get things done!....even though my procrastination with homework is still a challenge I have yet to completely overcome.
I was surprised at the internal growth that resulted in me stepping away from my Macbook--and Blackberry.
The pressures surrounding the fact that I am graduating from college next month were the icing on the cake.
I've been searching like crazy to find a job, and have had no luck thus far.
But, optimism is key, which is why I've been strongly considering moving to NYC.
I'm in dyer need of a change of scenery.
Don't get me wrong: I love California.
But I don't want to be that bitter granny who regrets never making the ballsy move to the Big Apple.
If I have kids--and even grandkids--I want to have remarkable stories about my youthful ventures,
even if they're all tales of incredible failure; at least I can say that I did it! :)
So that's where I'm at right now, getting things in order and going for the gusto.
Stay along for the ride.
