I guess I should start making this into an actual personal blog before I head to the Peace Corps, not just a platform for my angsty writing.
A snapshot of my life right now: I work 7 days/week. Three jobs. I nanny for two different families Monday-Thursday and work the front desk at a yoga studio on the weekends, and various weeknights as I’m needed. It feels somehow incredibly stressful and also fantastically organized and regular. It’s a lot of work, but it’s also a lot of stability. Also, I’m broke and want to pay off my credit card and have at least a small bit of savings to travel with throughout SE Asia and hopefully New Zealand/Tasmania. That last destination is more of a pipe dream.
I usually write in the mornings before work, or read or fill out forms for the PC.
Evenings are filled with work, friends (less so now that we don’t live in the same house), or alone time. This usually consists of Netflix, face masks, and my favorite mead.
I like my life. It’s stable which allows for personal growth. I am also very excited to get going and start my next chapter. This year has been very difficult and not that I’m running away . . . but I’m definitely ready to go.
It feels good to be alone. This is the longest I’ve felt alone since maybe high school. I feel that I’m on the precipice of something big. Something probably very difficult but also revolutionary in my life.
I’m ready and waiting.
