The Times They Are a Changin’

SO….It has been about 18 months since I posted, but I am going to try to get back into the blog game.  Here a few updates in my life, in 2014 I have made some major changes and here is a high level overview of what has made this one of the most exciting year in a while:

  • I stepped out of my comfort zone and made new friends, some have really changed my life others have not so much but they have all been players in this year.
  • I bought a HOUSE! It is crazy, if you would have asked me this time last year if I would be sitting in my new kitchen writing this post, I would have told you are nuts.
  • I have had success at work with increase responsibility and pay (the second is always nice)
  • I watched one of my oldest and dearest friends tie the knot, it was crazy to think someone I spent so much time with s a child is now a married man.  It was perhaps stranger than seeing my sister get married in 2013.
  • I have gone on all sorts of adventures: festivals, hometown tourist destinations, seeing my world with fresh eyes.
  • I have eaten a lot of great food- see the above bullet point.
  • I have learned to say goodbye, goodbye to neighborhoods, people, expectations- I credit lots of this to hard work in therapy, which is something I am so proud of myself for doing.

2014 was a hell of a year and I can’t wait to see what the last few weeks and the new year have in store.  I know this isn’t a big read for people, it shouldn’t be these are my own personal thoughts and musings, but I am going to work on updating more frequently.

Cheers!

The Tuesday Ten

I just saw this on another blog and thought I might give it a try, if I can do ne post a week this year then it is a win 🙂

Ten Things that I am loving this Tuesday:

10. Tuesday night game night is back! 

Nothing beats getting together with a bunch of your friends and playing yard games for a couple of hours.  I hope that it isn’t too cold.

9. The heat wave (sort of..)

It is warm here in the Ohio valley today and I am loving the 48-ish degree weather and the sunshine

8. Having someplace to be.

Today I hade to be up and rolling and out of the house for work and it was great, previously had been going stir crazy.

7. The kindness of my little brother.

He did me a huge solid today by letting me borrow his laptop since mine doesn’t have the microsoft word software.

6. New jobs to apply for.

Had several referrals to a job with an agency  I would love to work for, I have written my cover letter, but now taking a few to come back and look at it with fresh eyes.

5. Perspective

I seem to be getting the hang of that…finally!

4. Being reunited with an old friend

Met up with an old college roommate yesterday and it was like we had never been apart, hopefully we stay in touch!

3. Supportive Family

I love the my parents, especially are always there to help me and to step in when I need to a hand.  Today’s example, picking me up from the mechanics and then letting me borrow a car for the day.

2. Fun conversations with my twin sister

We didn’t talk much this weekend, so it was great to catch up with her while she was on her lunch and make fun of certain people’s handwriting and their enjoyment of selling things online.

1. Keeping my New Year’s Resolution to stay positive.  

It just makes the day that much better!

Living for the weekend

This has been an exciting weekend thus far. More adventures downtown, kayaking this morning and a beautiful Saturday evening of front porch sitting.

A morning in downtown Louisville

I just have to say, I love downtown Louisville! It is becoming more and more alive everyday, which makes it so exciting to be a young professional in this town. Saw “the clock” this morning when I was heading to a meeting.

Cat Sitting

As I like to say: Cats on Cats on Cats
