Hi everyone! I wanted to post a really quick update on here to let you guys know a little of whats going on in my life! I’ve been very absent from YouTube lately and wanted to explain a few things. I know not everyone watches my videos, but I do know that a few of you do follow me on that site as well so I figured I could just mention a few things.
First, I got engaged. I wasn’t going to announce it on here or anything but I already showed my ring on Instagram which was my way of announcing it. I’m contemplating starting another blog dedicated to my wedding plans and how I’m going to try to balance my final year of law school with dress shopping, cake tastings, etc. But if any of you want to know more about my engagement, I’d be happy to do a video on my vlog channel or write a post about it (just let me know!)
Second, my fiance (wow that’s still weird to say) and I were thinking about moving. Our lease is up in 2 weeks so we were hunting for a new apartment. It got really hectic there for a while because we hadn’t found a place we could agree on! So the last month has been stressful, worrying about where we were going to live and moving expenses. About a week ago we decided that we were going to stay in our apartment, but we wanted to do a major overhaul! We changed the layout of every room, got some new furniture and did some major spring cleaning. As of right now, the only place I have to film requires me to buy some lighting, hence why I haven’t filmed in about 2 weeks.
Third, it was my last day of work for about 3 weeks. I decided to continue to internship into the school year because I really think I’ve found my calling in life, or at least the area of law that I want to practice. To be honest, I took the job because I thought it would look really good on a resume and not because I was interested in the work, but I finally know what I want to be when I grow up! So tying up loose ends for 3 weeks off took a little bit of time.
Fourth, (jeez, tired of these excuses yet?) it was my fiance’s birthday. His birthday happened to coincide with my last day of work so we actually did a birth-weekend type of celebration. We celebrated with my family 1 night, our friends another, just me and him for a third night and then his family intermittently.
Finally, tomorrow is my birthday! I’ll be 26 and have been in a fowl mood for the last few days. 25 was really hard, although I know that some of you may be older than that and believe me I’m not saying that I’m old, but emotionally it was a rough one. 26 is even worse, because aside from being engaged I’m in the same place as I was when I was 21. I’m not going to type out a pity party and I don’t want to rub anyone the wrong way, but I think a few of you can relate to the dread of turning yet another year older while feeling you haven’t accomplished what you had wished you would have.
So that is why I’ve been absent from YouTube. I’m amazed I found the time to blog, and even more impressed that I’m writing this now. I wasn’t even going to blog today. But I got a comment today on one of my videos asking where I was and why I haven’t posted a video in a week. So I figured I should give you guys a little update! Be patient with me until I can figure out my filming situation and thank you so much for all of your support! It really does mean the world to me!
Hope you all are having a good summer (or winter for those of you in the other hemisphere!)
