If you know me, you are probably thinking, "is she really going to start a blog?" Well, the answer is YES.
I have been in a little bit of a rut lately. Not that I have been unhappy, just...lazy. I haven't been eating right or taking care of my body; I haven't been shopping since Christmas; and I'm just overall B-O-R-E-D with myself. Mainly, I blame my job. There are many perks to my job that I will surely miss (and regret complaining about): government holidays and hours, decent pay, plenty of vacation time, and almost complete independence in managing my workload. But there is one thing that is lacking that makes a great job so important - a challenge. Everyone loves a good challenge. And for those of us who went to law school - well, we like downright pain and punishment. During my first year here, I was engaged and completely happy to spend my entire day planning my wedding. But after my wedding was over, and there was nothing left to plan, I discovered just how uneventful my daily routine had become.
In order to bring some purpose or meaning back into my daily routine, I am going to blog. I have to credit my best friend, Kelly, for giving me this idea. She currently has a photo blog, where she documents each day by taking a picture. Since she began her blog sometime last year, I noticed that my reliance on her daily posts began to grow, to the point where if she does not post a picture for a few days, I am severely disappointed. Maybe it's because we live in different places, so by seeing her pictures, I feel more connected to her daily life. Or maybe it's just because I have nothing better to do than get addicted to someone else's blog. Either way, thanks.
I should warn you that I know nothing about blogging. I have never followed someone else's written blog. In fact, I googled "how to blog" before even creating this. Apparently I'm supposed to have a "theme." So I picked cupcakes and vodka. It's not so much of a theme, but more of a tone that I am setting for the future posts in this blog. This blog is going to be my daily dose of fun, which is a necessary step in getting me out of this rut.
