When I started this blog back in 2006, my inspiration came from a very popular Natasha Bedingfield song called "Unwritten." I was just getting ready to start my freshman year at BYU and a lot of things in my life had changed up to that point. In fact, my first blog post reflected a lot of what was going on at the time. Fast forward almost six years and I'm no longer the 22-year-old girl preparing for her first airplane ride as she gets ready to move across country. I'm now a 28-year-old college graduate preparing for the next chapter in my life.
It's been six years since I started college. Eight months since I graduated. In the eight months since graduation I've spent three months being counted amongst the unemployed, four months working for the New York Mets, I lived in two states and an entirely different continent. That's the funny thing about time: a lot of stuff you never planned on happening can happen in such a short amount of it. That's why I decided to re-launch the blog.
In the midst of break-ups and breakdowns, highs and lows, I've had a lot of time to think and reflect on my life and what it means to start to come into my own. Anyone who knows me knows I tell it like it is, regardless of how it might seem to those around me and this blog will do just that. It will be brutally honest reflections on life, work, relationships, religion, sex, sports, you name it.
Today is where the latest chapter of my book begins....
The rest is still unwritten.....
