Have you ever wondered how hard it is to keep up with a somewhat daily blog while also working three jobs, trying to maintain a social life, and keep from suffering from exhaustion? I’ll tell you what; it’s tricky.
So much has happened since my latest post. I had my 24th birthday last Monday, the 19th (please take notes for 2013) which was a truly great day. I FINALLY, after months of searching, a short break, and then another search, landed myself a serving job. It’s this little Italian and Mediterranean place, called Portobello’s, and it is close to home in Glendale. The food is great, the people are nice, and I finally have the chance to make some money (hopefully). I am still tutoring and working at Abercrombie, where tonight at work my friend (who happens to be of Hispanic origin) told me my preppy popped collar, shorter-cut shorts and crew neck sweatshirt made me the “whitest white person alive”. Naturally, I took it as a compliment.
But work is not the only aspect of my life that has changed. There has also been a shift on the relationship front. I know, I know – no one ever thought they would see the day. However, I can attest to my own happiness and am excited to see where it will go. Life is all about taking chances and having news experiences, right? Right. I basically write all my posts that way.
It is hard to believe that only a few short weeks ago I was stressing out, applying for jobs left and right, scrambling for anything that might offer a leg up – and now look at me. Before when my copious amounts of free time troubled me into a state of near neurosis, now I can barely keep up with myself. It really is mind blowing how quickly your life can change…
Just this morning it felt like I was living in a dream, an alternate reality, where I was merely watching someone else’s life unfold rather than actually living my own. It’s like I could step out of my own skin and watch my life as if it were a movie. Everything about where I am right now seems surreal. I am quite literally “going with the flow”, “flying by the seat of my pants”, taking everything in strides and trying to suck up the experiences instead of over-analyzing them. Deep down I know it’s the best way to live. I just cannot wait to see what the future holds.
