It has been almost a year since I’ve blogged. I’ve stopped, well slowed down, for a number of reasons. One, my job. I’ve had this job for 4 years, and I love it. And apparently I’ve been doing a great job, because my supervisor keeps adding on and giving me more responsibility each year. -_- Second, I’m in graduate school. The extra time I had is now consumed by reading and writing papers. Thankfully, I only have one more year to go. Woo-hoo! Come on May 2019! Third, I’m also an advisor for my sorority at a local university. I love it. It’s a lot of work, but I love my younger sorors and helping them do the work of and learn all about our beloved sisterhood.
Also, 2018 has seen me take my 2nd international trip! Once my Internship for the summer was complete, I took a 5 day cruise with some friends. I had a ball! It was a great trip, I got a tan, and I brought back some alcohol! 🙂
2018 also had the appearance of an old beau. Someone I dated many moons ago (before Southern Mom passed) reached out, said he was going to be on the East Coast and said that he wanted to see me. We hung out one weekend, and aside from one minor spat, everything went well. But now I am regretting that decision. Just when I think things may start working out in my love life, that’s when sh*t hits the fan, and then I decide that I’m never going to find someone because all the men I meet are jerks. Or something to that effect.
In any event, I’m in the part of the cycle where I’m over men. I think I should just stop doing this to myself. Especially since I have so many positive things going on in my life right now. And honestly, I feel great about everything in my life, except I am not satisfied with being single. Don’t get me wrong, I would definitely rather be single that be in a toxic relationship; however, it can’t be that hard to find someone that wants what I want and wants me and I want him. But apparently it is because here I am.
In any event, I’m back at the point where I’m focusing on me. Which is sort of ironic since about this time last year I was in this same place. Ah well, such is life.
Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
Take your time, Elle. Enjoy your life. You will find the person that fits into it.
