For the New Year, I bought myself Start Where You Are: a Journal of Self-Exploration.
It feels important, in this time of unemployment and hermitage, to be reflective about where I am. I like the idea of not judging my place in life, even though it’s hard for me. I like the idea of taking stock from this day forward, of challenging myself to consider my dreams and ambitions and thoughts of where I want my life to be now and where I want it to go next.
Today, my blog is 9.
I don’t write in it as much as I would like.
It’s changed forms a bunch of times since I started.
These days, I have Twitter and Facebook and Instagram to put down my quick “thoughts of the day” or observations about pop culture.
I’m not working right now, so I’m not collecting hilarious quotes from my team or the kids I worked with.
I don’t even write personal essays that often anymore.
But, I’ve been doing this blogging thing since I was a 23 year old college grad, living in Brooklyn.
Now I’m an unemployed 32 year old, living in Los Angeles.
That’s about as far away from where I started as I can get.
So here I start again, from right where I am.
