Well hello hello! *coughs* I seem to leave the blogosphere for extended periods of time without warning or ceremony rather often, don’t I?
Yeah, I know I do. It’s scandalous.
Life (God) has given me so, so, SO much this year. I’ve gone out and done so many more things than I’ve ever done before! A big reason for that might be that I got my driver’s license in February and became an adult in May. That definitely has something to do with it.
Besides that, the activities and opportunities to do things have just… flowed in.
Here’s a list of some pretty cool things that I’ve gotten to do this year:
- Got my first part-time job. (Cleaning stalls. glamorous, I know)
- Learned many different dances/went to different dancing events!! (Line dancing and swing dancing are my favorite types)
- Went to breakfast/lunch/dinner with friends.
- Had a couple of sleepovers/movie nights with friends.
- Got my second (and current!) job at a western tack store!
That last bullet point would have to be the biggest blessing (besides closer friendships) that I listed there. My job is amazing; getting to meet lots of cool people, pushing me to be more outgoing than I already was, and getting to laugh and talk with coworkers that I truly enjoy working with (they’re both much much older than me, by the way), and learning many new things I never knew before that I, as a cowgirl, am grateful to know.
So, you can probably see why I haven’t been even slightly active here in a long while. I got my new job (which is 9-5, four days a week) close to the beginning of August, and my last post went live on August 15th. It has kind of taken me away from a lot of the things I really enjoy, reading, riding, and writing. Blogging is something I’ve discovered I can really easily do without. I make time for reading and riding, because those are my passions, and I still dream about my story ideas… once in a while… but blogging has taken a definite back seat, and I’m not at all upset.
All that to say, I’m not really much of a blogger anymore, BUT- I do plan on blogging more. I will write a post at some point; I just can’t say when. I still love this blog and how I designed it, etc., so I don’t want to let it drown. It’s floundering, but not drowning yet.
There are posts I’d like to do. One in particular: I want to rant and rave about the Harry Potter books, which I had the pleasure of reading for the first time in October. I’m reading them for the second time now, and I feel as if I can’t get enough of the story, the Wizarding world, and Fred Weasley. And Remus Lupin. And Nymphadora Tonks.
Another post I’d like to do is my thoughts on Black Widow, the movie, which is the first Marvel movie I’ve ever seen (I went with friends to see it in the theater! it was amazing!), and my thoughts on DUNE (it was amazing too!).
But… not right now. We’ll see when I decide to sit down and write those posts. For now, I just want to say THIS IS NOT THE LAST PAGE, and I’LL BE BACK. Thanks for reading.
Oh: and the official Sorting on The Wizarding World says I’m in Gryffindor. Rawr.
I’m Kendra, a Christian and ENFP who reads, rides horses, and eats pumpkin foods. especially muffins. I have a weakness for a certain Hobbit by the name of Sam and could re-read N.D. Wilson’s Outlaws of Time series forever. mention Jane Austen to me and I’ll be your friend for life.
