Friday, August 17

I know I've been seriously absent lately and I'm super sorry. You see, my life is in major flux right now. I'm in the process of packing up the last 5 years of my life in preparation for MOVING BACK TO HALI!!!!! If you couldn't tell by my KANYE CAPS, I'm crazy excited!!! Over these past few months, I've been shuffling between periods of angst and periods of excitement. At first, I flip-flopped every hour, but these days, it's progressed to every few days. I'm like 85% excited and 15% pure fear. What if things don't work out? What if I'm just being crazy and everyone is too nice to tell me to my face? Change is scary, y'all. Luckily, I've got some pretty stellar people who can talk reason into me when necessary (I'm looking at you, TB) and remind me that change is also so very exciting. And it's all coming to a head right-about-now. The movers arrive on Monday! So I have 2 days to get the important parts of my life into boxes and purge the rest. Every time I manage to check something off my To-Do list, I have to add 3 more. FRUSTRATION. But it will get done. It always does, somehow.

The most time-intensive part is definitely sorting through my belongings and determining what to purge. It's ridiculous how much junk you can accumulate in 5 years. It feels refreshing to get rid of stuff. I've always loved the idea of living simply, without all of these knickknacks and accessories and STUFF everywhere. Just the things I need.
Unfortunately, I've never been very good at putting that into practice. I have difficulty with restraint and I like pretty things; what can I say? So I'm trying to use this opportunity to purge the things that don't mean as much to me. A fresh start, possession-wise. A fresh start, everything-wise, haha.

Thus, the reason for my absence. Things be hectic around here. But there's lots of excitement to look forward to! (I'm so sorry I ended that sentence with a preposition; I just can't be bothered to figure out another way to say it). On my way back to Haligonia next week, I'm stopping in Toronto for a little reunion with my essentials. It's our 10-year friendship anniversary!!! Crazy times. The traditional 10th anniversary gift is tin. Prepare to receive some tin foil, ladies. That about taps out my budget, haha.

So please, friends. Excuse my absence a little longer. I promise once I'm settled back in Canada's Ocean Playground, I'll be a better blogger.
