It’s 2019. I guess it’s true what they say about time flying. I think it has been about four years or so since I’ve written on here. I am going to do my best to hold my never-ending promise of writing on a constant basis. The past few years have been a whirlwind of events that I don’t think could possibly be summarized in one post.
I joined the U.S. Army in 2015 as a paralegal specialist and served for three years in the Army Reserve. I finally fulfilled my lifelong dream of going to Michigan State University and got my Bachelor degree in Communication with a Minor in Public Relations (2016-2018). I commissioned as an Army Officer in Field Artillery and am currently at BOLC for said branch (2018). I got married in 2017 and divorced in 2018.
So, like I said it has been a rollercoaster of a ride since 2013-14. I can honestly say I have had a love/hate relationship with the past few years. My emotions and feelings have been all over the place and I’m still trying to figure out where I stand with them. I have had more love and loss in the past three years than I probably have in my entire life. Nothing I have read or written about could have ever prepared me for anything I have experienced thus far. Part of my resolutions is to read and write more, explore the depths of myself, and of course just enjoy the ride that is life without fussing over every detail.
Self-help is the name of the game this year and I plan to try and have a less pessimistic view of the world as opposed to a lot of what my angsty teenage posts lead you to believe. Honestly, this is all I really have to write about at the moment. Kind of like a shot of espresso. A lot of kick in a small package. More stories are coming, more soul, and as always, all of me.
To my regular readers and the new, happy new year and I hope this one is your best year yet.
