Home Stretch Now

Y’all, there’s only one month left of 2020. Talk about a surreal feeling right? Recap; life was throw into a tornado and we all came out different people. Today I want to talk about how this year has changed me, as well as life around me. And I should also talk about the future of what I’m doing here on this website. Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere. Not yet anyway... What a year.

This year started so rough for a lot of people, and I am one hundred percent one of those people. Not being able to recognize when you’re in one of the lowest parts of your life is just a bummer. Relationships that weren’t meant to be, questioning where money was going to be coming from, and just in a real rut was how my year started. It wasn’t too long after I connected with the lovely soul that is now my roommate, and adopted a couple more furry kids. She has been such a light for me, being able to grow together in a healthy environment, I love her so much.

New relationship? I know right, scandalous. I say that, this is the most healthy transition I’ve made pretty much ever. From June until September I was a single pringle. I know that’s not a lot of time for a lot of people, but for me that’s a huge accomplishment. I haven’t been single for more than twenty-four hours in about seven years. Being able to communicate and share experiences without feeling invalid or even like I talk too much is so relieving. That feeling that someone cares for you makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. I’ll stop simping over my boyfriend now, sorry. Not actually sorry, I enjoy it.

Highlight for December, BAKING! Oh I am so excited to be baking so many treats! By no means am I a baker, but I do love me some snacks. Almost every friend of mine bakes around the holidays too. Bella and I have made cookies, and salsa, and the odd mess or two, my lovely roommate makes a killer tiramisu, and this year we’ve been invited to do some baking at my boyfriends place. SO MANY SNACKS!!! I’m so hyped! Plus, some of my drivers have bakers in their families. I’ve got to start working out... Quality time is definitely up there in my love languages.

Remember when we all had high hopes for 2020? Even with the lows, there were a lot of highs too. Mentally, I’m in a good place, and I have an amazing group of people around me. Plus, everyone here, this website, this memory holder, has been so amazing for me. I love doing this, and I hope you love reading my rambles. Come 2021 I should also have a camera for my computer (I forgot what the word for that is…) so I can start maybe streaming for my Multimedia Mondays. In short, I’m going to be staying for the time being, and hopefully for a long time. Plus, I have some more hiking trails I want to share when I get there. So yeah, you’re stuck with me for now.

Thanks for coming around today, and be safe out there! We’re in the home stretch, only a little more left and we’re free! Don’t forget, you can support me via my social media, whether Twitter or Instagram, as well as donations in both Paypal and Patreon. Thanks again for everything!
