Silver Linings Playbook was hands-down my favorite movie of the year. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence did such an amazing job of humanizing mental illness and depression in a very real way, heartbreaking and hilarious at the same time. 

Plus, BCoop, damn son, you are attractive.

During a blizzard, it’s very important to stay hydrated. I’ve got it covered on all fronts. Snowmageddon, come at me, bro.

And in the spirit of acknowledging the amazing things that have happened in my life, here’s a picture of my amazing people & I hiking the New Hampshire mountains on my 30th birthday.

I just looked back at my Tumblr, and the last time I posted on here was December 17th, 2010. I’ve kept up with this community and check in on all my favorite blogs daily, but I really miss writing. It’s hard to believe that it’s been more than two years since I’ve shared here. 

The truth is, shortly after my last post, I was hurt so badly in my real (read: non-online) life, that I started questioning sharing my honest thoughts with my friends and family IRL, nevermind laying them all out online. My natural tendencies lead me to be open and emotional, but the last two years have shut me down a bit, and I’m not entirely sure that’s a good thing. I think I need to start to toe the line a bit between spewing out everything that comes to my mind automatically with losing a little of the fear that I currently feel of being judged and/or disliked. 

Couple the above-mentioned turmoil with an insane and stressful new job, and I just haven’t been taking the time to figure out exactly what I need. So, I am making a real effort to start sharing here again. For me only. If others read and can relate, that’s great. If not, I’m hoping this space will allow me to feel a little bit more like myself. To digest what’s happened in the last 24 months, and appreciate how much progress I’ve made and how many amazing things have happened in my life. 

So, hi guys, I missed you!

I really miss blogging. I think I will start again. Deep thoughts on a Tuesday night.
