Yesterday was my last day of summer. It was the last day of my Turning My Life Into a Pinterest Board series, the last day of nervousness and excitement over starting my new job, the last day hopefully of a long and hard season of my life.
Yesterday, I had one final, lazy, summer day. Lunch and some quality time with Drew, a few errands, lots and lots of Gossip Girl in bed, staying up later than I wanted, and I even snacked as if I didn’t spend more than a few days creating long posts about cooking and fitness and over all healthy living this week.
Honestly, if my life last night was a Pinterest Board, no one would have repinned it.
Even though I spent yesterday doing everything I said not to do this whole past week, it was a perfect way to end the summer. Mostly because, at the end of the night, I felt lethargic, bored, and kind of guilty. It drove home my point that I wanted change and live my life differently. It was hopefully a final glimpse at what will now be my old life.
Things are going to change.
I am so happy to see this past year slip behind me. And I am so ready to see this new academic year be one of (fun!) challenges, creativity, and adventure. Here’s to kicking my own butt and getting things rolling!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m headed out the door to the first day of my career.
