So…it’s official…I’m old. I really can’t call this blog tales of a 20-something in the city anymore. Because…I’m 30 now. Yup. I still feel like I’m in my 20s though, so that should count for something, right? No, I know- it’s a LIE. Sigh. I wonder if I should change my blog name. Is that even possible? Well, whatever. Anyways…sorry I haven’t written since…oh, 9 months. No, I was wasn’t busy being pregnant. I was busy living life! Yeah, that sounds more exciting! Ok, so my life has been pretty hectic so I don’t think I can really say I’ve been “living” life. More like breezing through day after day and having it pass me by. Ok, that doesn’t sound fun either. My excuse? I’m an adult now. Adults don’t have fun. They cram a million things into their small 24-hour schedule…which usually includes 8 hours every day already thrown away at their God-awful jobs, a few hours at the gym after work, maybe squeeze in a dinner date with some gal pals before you head home to your boyfriend and get maybe an hour or 2 with him before you pass out and relive your Groundhog Day all over again when you wake up. Um…is anyone jealous of this schedule? This has been my life for the past 2 years. Ever since I got a big-girl job…a 9-5er. I keep hoping something will change, my life will get more exciting, yadda yadda yadda. Nope. I’m lucky if I even GET to see my friends. I feel like I’m neglecting them. I feel like I’m neglecting ME. I feel like I’m neglecting my family that I haven’t seen in 6 months- that’s the longest I’ve ever gone without seeing my family…and no date in the near future that I see myself getting to go home to visit them. Poor me.
Ok, my intention was not to create a “bummer blog” today. I guess that’s just what it’s turning into. Ok, enough of that- let’s talk about some POSITIVE things that have happened to me that I haven’t been able to update on. I went out of the country for the 1st time in February! Yup, got to use my passport for the 1st time, get my 1st passport stamp. It was amazing- I went to Ireland with my boyfriend. We pretty much drove all over the entire country and saw EVERYTHING, including the Cliffs of Moher (which I was most excited about). And it wasn’t too intimidating (Ireland has normal food that I like and everyone speaks English, ha!) I’m ready to go to more places like Paris or London. Traveling is something I’m very passionate about, I just want to see as much as I can and experience everything. I don’t want to miss out on anything in life. I want to know it all.
I played Paintball for the 1st time ever! My boyfriend and I bought a Living Social deal. It only cost $69 and for that we got 2-hour transportation to and from the paintball field in PA, 500 paintballs and gun rental and mask rental and air refills, and lunch! WHA?! Um…TELL me that’s not a good deal. Yes, it is. We ended up buying an additional 500 paintballs to split between the 2 of us and ended up renting camo and extra protective gear (which was only $15 extra bucks). But I think it was totally worth it! You get to play 5 games on all different fields of play. I was a little timid at first- I didn’t shoot a THING during the first game…and pretty much hid as far away from the other team as I could. I finally convinced myself to NOT be a pansy during the second game and I actually went out and shot at people…and got shot myself, ha! But you gotta experience getting shot! Or else it’s not worth it! Fun times- I highly suggest it.
My boyfriend also took me out of town a few weeks ago for my 30th birthday- we went to San Francisco and Northern California. We spent the majority of the trip hiking and biking (which isn’t relaxing at ALL!) But the more I thought about it, the happier I was that we were keeping ourselves busy being active and going to many different areas to see as much as we could. We did some wine tasting in Napa, rode our bikes over the Golden Gate Bridge, and also got to ride the cable cars! As long as I hit up those “must-do’s”, I was content with anything else thrown my way.
Now I’m back at my office (yes, I’m blogging from work- AGAIN!) Bossy-Poo is in Paris right now. So I don’t have to be her servant for the next week! AH! LOVE IT! I’m actually being pro-active and am currently searching for a new job. I had a final interview with a company the day before I left for California but they haven’t made any decisions yet. All I know is that they told me today that I’m still in the running. Keeping my fingers crossed! If I get this job, I get paid MORE, do LESS work, and get full benefits! Um…yes please! So all of you out there in blogland, keep me and my sanity in your prayers. I need this new job to save me from the bullshit I do right now. Which really is…basically…being a servant. No joke. I don’t feel like a 30 year old gal shouldn’t be in such a demeaning job. It’s time for me to move on.
Things to look forward to- FREE YOGA IN TIMES SQUARE AGAIN! Yup- 2 days from now it’s the 1st day of summer! This time I’m not doing the 1st class of the day with the sun rising, I’m doing the LAST class of the day with the sun setting. Should be a cool experience. Plus my boyfriend is coming with me this time- ha! THAT should be interesting 😉 Summer Soccer season starts up in a few weeks! I’ve been deprived since early May which was our last game for Winter season- we made it to the playoffs- got 3rd Place out of 16 teams! Not too shabby! And last but not least- the hope of going home at the end of July and finally seeing my family again. I’m hoping this happens. I look forward to it because I need to make it happen. Hold me to this, my BloggerPeeps.
I’ll do my best to blog more often- once a week if possible. It’s summer…it could happen! 🙂 Until then…
