Memorial Day Weekend Getaway

Happy Tuesday! Hope you all had great Memorial Day weekends with lots of fun, sun and friends! Mine was spent in Virginia Beach with my roommate and her family. It was a much needed escape from the chaos of my life to get away, spend some down time getting some sun, and being around some of the most kind and amazing people I know. And the view wasn't too bad either:

(More pictures to come, once I get my lazy self to load them online). There was lots of fun this weekend, but at the end, I had to face the reality that it was time to make some decisions about my life. Where to live? Whether to keep my job or look for another one? Etc etc. Basically all of the decisions that make you feel settled in life. I definitely had some anger moments at the ex for leaving me in this predicament with very little time to figure out what it is that I want to do. But today I found out that I can stay in my current apartment, and I asked my supervisor for my job back (which I think it is still available, thankfully). So, ex boyfriend, you haven't totally screwed me over, just partially. This will allow me some time to figure out what I want, where I want to be, etc but get some footing for myself.


So instead of hitching my star to someone else's wagon, I'm hitching my wagon to my own star, making the most of the situation that I'm in by taking it day by day, and surrounding myself with people who I care about.

Hope you all are settling nicely back into the day to day!
