I am a little late on the whole new year, new you deal. So, a happy belated New Years to my short list of readers. It has been a busy past couple of months with work and school, and honestly not really wanting to write any blog posts because I was down in the dumps. Thanksgiving came and went, and then December arrived and it hit me that I was supposed to be leaving to head to Fiji. Actually, I would be there at this very moment. Yes, I am still a little bitter about the vents that occurred, even though you can’t control mother nature.
Honestly, it was a blessing in disguise. As most of you know I have rheumatoid arthritis. It is not something I talk a lot about on the web because I do not like to complain about it. It is a pain though, and for a while I was in remission, but as of August not anymore. I have gone through three rounds of infusions and finally after this last one it is helping. I have my next one in a few weeks and have started to notice the pain coming back. Cold weather also makes it worse. See, complaining.
I have also come to the realization that Nashville doesn’t feel like home anymore. It feels like a stepping stone to wherever I end up next. Who knows where that will be, currently I am thinking out west. That could change next month, and it probably will. Because of the weird emotions I have been having I up and decided to delete Facebook this past Sunday, along with Tinder and OK Cupid. New year, new beginnings as I said.
There were some great times though. My family spent Thanksgiving and Christmas together for the first time in two years. My brother could not be here this year since he is doing the grown up internship year of his residency program. Family is amazing. Friends are amazing and when the blues hit you, they are what keeps you going, well for me at least.
I rang in the New Year with my best friend, Amber at the Old Crow Medicine Show Concert. Duh.
We have also enjoyed going to Predators games and planning our spring break! Hooray for being a student!
Speaking of hockey games, I also got to see one of my great friends who no longer lives here, the one and only Josh.
The spring semester started today and I am taking a full load of classes and working. I am still working on my 101 in 1001 list as well, along with wanting to travel and get outside more.
Things might be changing around the blog, but please do not leave me. I feel that I am discovering the person I want to be. Things could get interesting.
Unti next time.
