Screen Shot 2018-06-28 at 1.39.36 PMSo I know I dropped some preeeettyyyy big news on the blog this week, and it’s kind of like, how do I expect people to process the fact that last time we talked, I was literally the most single person the world had ever seen and could not get guys to go on dates lasting longer than 45 minutes, and somehow I’ve locked down a person that wants to stay with me for the REST OF OUR EARTHLY DAYS?! …Yea, it’s nuts.

So…how did this happen? Basically right before I met NF (REMINDER: “Now-fiance”…meh, I tried.), I had what is known as a “come to Jesus moment.” I was once again in the throes of a very weird non-relationship “thing,” where I was trying really, really, really hard and he was trying, um, not hard at all. And even though I knew this was happening, that this was a pattern that had been repeated over and OVER with the same result (ghosting/sadness/endless scrolling), I still found myself trying to make something out of nothing.

So then I was out to dinner with a friend, filling her in on my dating frustrations. Like I was reading from a script, I moaned about how I didn’t understand why this wasn’t really going anywhere. So she asked what I liked about him. I said he was a real adult. He had a real job. He lived in an apartment. He cooked food. But instead of humoring me, she just went, “It actually sounds like you don’t like him. You basically described a generic human.”  

Well. WELL. …That was news to me. I had been thinking I needed to work super hard for this to be something, basically because he…existed?  “Existence” was a trait that decided whether a person was dateable or not?! No–NOT TODAY. NOT AGAINNNNNN.

The relationship petered out, and instead of being like, “I WILL DIE ALONEEEEEEE,” I was like, I AM DONE WITH THIS. And Jesus said, “FINALLY OMG.” (Just kidding, not how Jesus talks, sorry to my grandma for taking the Lord’s name in vain etc. etc. etc.)  

And then literally 2 days later, I met NF.

To be continued mwah ha ha (this is a cliffhanger.)  

What’s My Age: 15, staring in a drama-club production of “Everything is Hard.” 

Screen Shot 2018-06-26 at 12.13.09 PMWoah woah WOAH. The blog is back! I know I’ve said it before (and I’ll probably say it again…) but I once again have the itch to write about my life in an embarrassingly personal way so…here goes!

Um, quite a bit has changed since the last time I updated this little web journal. And when I say, “a bit,” I actually mean…LITERALLY EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE. It’s been a little over a year since I last wrote, mostly about my tales of singlehood and the pure misery of dating, and let me tell ya, things are different. Namely…I got engaged. So like…that is a thing that happened and it’s really quite wonderful to be in a committed relationship and OMFG I AM ENGAGED IS THIS FER RULL?

It is, in fact, “fer rull.” Shortly after my last blog post, I met my now-fiance (Wait, wut?) (PS, now to-be referred to as “NF”) and it has basically been a whirlwind of excitement and nervousness and tacos and happiness and fear and basically thinking day in and day out, HOW DID THIS HAPPEN TO MEH? And between all that, I’ve taken some vacations (namely, one where I got ENGAGED ON IT. Highly recommend.), I bought a couch that NF and I sit on in the apartment we now share (K….WUT.), I got promoted at my job, I started planning a G-D WEDDING and I also got really into yoga. Ya know, all in a year’s work.

So here we go again, into the abyss of my life and all the overthinking that goes into it. Join me! Celebrate with me! But please don’t ask me if I’ve picked out a wedding dress yet. I will snap.  

All that and more to come! (You’ve been warned.)

What’s my age again? I’m 30 now. WHAT?!
