Back again

I'm back. It would appear that I like to blog every 2 years. When I logged in this morning, I was actually surprised that I posted something that recently. I figured it had been 4 or 5 years since I wrote anything. A couple of my friends recently started blogging, so I was inspired to crank mine back up. I'm certain someone somewhere missed hearing the mundane little details of my life. Although, I'm pretty sure I'm the only person who has viewed my blog, probably ever. And that's OK for now.

To sum up life since I last blogged, a couple of years of off and on turmoil- both personally and professionally- has finally leveled out a bit. I'm in a much better space personally, due in large part to just some good old-fashioned growing up. But I must admit that a lot of that is also due to finding love with the person I know I'm meant to marry. Now I've settled into a nice little home life, and I couldn't be happier. At home.

Work, on the other hand, is still a mess. I'm in a soulless job that I can barely tolerate, and I live in an area with the highest unemployment rate in the country, so finding a new and/or better job is slow going. Yes, I know I should be happy to have a job, and I am, but having to put with up with ridiculous bullshit on a daily basis takes it toll. I'm in real estate, specifically the apartment leasing business. When I applied for this job, I thought to myself: "A customer service job with regular office hours and commission? Sign me up!". Little did I know, it's really just like the hell of retail with better hours and only slightly better pay. Seriously though, you think selling products or handling someone's food is bad, try handling someone's home. And not just getting them to rent an apartment, but dealing with them regularly the entire time they live there. It's like if you are a waitress and you have that annoying table that never leaves. Ever. And neither do any of the other tables. And you weren't actually trained to wait tables or told about the food you serve, so you've been flying by the seat of your pants the entire time. Mix in a horribly unorganized and understaffed corporate office and you've got my job. Living the dream.

I'm not sure what direction I plan on taking this blog. For now, it will probably continue to be random thoughts (read: rants) and maybe a few book/music reviews or recipes. Maybe I'll actually throw in a picture here and there this time. Or maybe, I will just blog again in another 2 years. Let's wait and see, shall we?
