Yes, I’m still alive!

It’s been just around a year since I’ve updated, and I HATE myself for that.  I really enjoyed keeping this blog even though I know I’m mostly talking (typing?) to radio silence, it gives me clarity when I’m able to write everything down instead of having it swimming in my head.  So much has happened in the past year…it actually overwhelmed me a bit when I happened upon my previous entries and read them through.  I wasn’t sure if I wanted to keep (hopefully) maintaining this because everything is SO different from how it was a year ago, but I thought that I at least owed it to myself to give it a whirl.

I don’t want to diverge everything that’s gone on in the past year in this little update, but I will have many other, longer entries coming up that are more informative.  I know I’m only 150 words into this post, but it does feel good to be back in the swing of blogging.

I will update soon, and I hope no one hates me too much for the silence over the past year!



What the heck, Rachel you’re a blogger now??

Hey cyber-friends.

So, I’ve realized that this is probably a silly thing for me to do, especially because I live in suburbia and no one here blogs unless their life is totally dramatic or they’re really good at cooking.  Unfortunately for you out there reading this right now, I am neither of the aforementioned blog types – I’m just an Average Joe (Rachel?) who’s got too many thoughts for her head.  I can’t promise that each entry will have a coherent theme or much of anything interesting to say, but I’ll try my best for all of my faithful readers.  (Hi, mom).  Some topics you can expect from me:

  • college
  • boyfriend & friends
  • work
  • personal life

I don’t know about you, but that vague list looks pretty damn intriguing!  (Kidding).  I’m gonna get started on those super interesting blog entries now, while the ideas are swimming around in my head.  Who knows how often I’ll feel motivated, so I should really get cracking!
