So here we are at the last full week of September! It’s hard to believe how quickly this month has passed. Yesterday was the first day of fall/autumn and that makes me one happy girl! I love this time of year, even if I do generally have to leave Phoenix to fully experience the season out here. But who am I to complain about mini road trips? (smile)
Anyway, for today’s Blogtember post the theme is: A life lately post.
Life lately has been a combination of the mundane and stressful. Sadly enough, it’s mostly been stressful. I live pretty far from my family and I have a very sick grandpa; it’s been very difficult to not be closer to him during this time. I’ve come to the realization that I do enjoy my job and the field I work in, but it’s difficult to be in management, especially when you’re the youngest person in the office! I’m such a planner, but recently I feel like there are so many side roads to potentially tempt me away from my main goal that it really stresses me out. No matter what, I feel like there are major changes on the horizon and I’m trying my best to prepare to ride the waves. Perhaps the best part of life right now involves baking, pumpkin beer, and blessedly cooler weather! I have a pretty big birthday coming up in November and I’m planning a big trip to celebrate! I’m sure there’ll be more to come on that as it gets closer. Lately I’ve just been dreaming about all the possibilities and trying to nail down a few of the bigger details (like a plane ticket).
My goals for this autumn are:
- Bake as much as possible (recipes to come!)
- Evaluate my job options
- Spend as much time as possible with my family (whether it’s by phone, skype, or in person)
- Plan and enjoy the best birthday trip ever (big smile)
I think that’s probably enough to keep me busy. I’ll just count anything else I manage to cram in as a bonus (smile).
What are your goals for the season??
