It’s been awhile, hasn’t it?
Like 3 1/2 months. Whoa.
Let me tell you that I did not plan on taking as big of a break, but it was needed.
I wanted to take a month off because school was getting so hectic. I was trying to do well in some pretty difficult classes, I was interring and volunteering a lot, trying to get on a research team, applying for leadership positions, it’s been a busy, stressful, exciting few months.
I’ve been out of school for over a month, but I wanted to enjoy the summer for a bit. Don’t get me wrong, this blog was never really a job in my eyes, but I wanted to take some time to just do nothing. It felt great, but I am ready to get back to work. I still have lots of obligations and responsibilities during the summer, so I may as well just embrace the busy life! Next year is going to be dysfunctional, let me tell you.
I made a new life decision that is leading to a number of changes and transitions in my life. Initially, I wanted to get a Masters Degree and become a Marriage and Family Therapist. However, in the last couple months, this career decision felt limiting. Yes, I am interested in clinical work, but I also realized that I have an interest in research and teaching, and I would like to have more options. For that reason, I am deciding to pursue a PhD in clinical or counseling psychology. Are these fields competitive? Ohhhh yes. However, will it all be worth it? Yes. Yes it will.
In terms of health and veganism. Yup, still vegan. Always will be. My health has been better. I took a break from yoga that I deeply regret, and went through a period of disordered eating that is finally past me.
Needless to say, I needed a break from a lot of stressors in my life. I feel like everything is changing, but I am trying to embrace it. It will all be for the better, as all of life’s transitions are.
In terms of blogging, I will be getting back into it, maybe just posting 1-2 times per week. I have some recipe ideas that I’d love to test, so expect some new stuff from me soon.
If I keep going on, I already know I’l start sounding redundant. It is time for me to move forward by no longer talking about what happened, and start focusing on what is next. I cannot wait for future projects, both with the blog and with the other, busier part of my life. I hope you will stick with me, and I am so sorry I took so long to come back.
Have an awesome day, and as always, Namaste.
