I have officially been blogging for 7 years. I composed my very first post in 2009 during the summer between law school years when I was working as a summer associate. Here’s that post:
“I am new to the whole “working” everyday 9-5 thing. I’ve spent the last 21 years (holy moly that’s a lot of years) of my life in school, with one more to go, so the only jobs I’ve had are summer or part-time things that don’t really count. What I’ve discovered since having a big girl job this summer is I spend a lot of time trying to find things to do other than work. Don’t get me wrong, I do get all of my work done and actually really enjoy the research and such that I get to do. Yes, I’m a nerd, hence the 21 years in school thing…BUT, I can’t be productive all day long.
In my seeking to find things to do on the internets beside work, I’ve discovered several of my friends from high school and college have blogs. Being so far away from everyone, I really do enjoy reading about what’s going on in their lives. So, after much contemplation, I decided to start a blog of my own. Can’t guarantee anything I write will be remotely entertaining, but it will provide me with, yet another, means to distract me from working.”
Since that time, I’ve: graduated law school, moved to Dallas, passed the bar exam, had a few jobs before landing in my current job, which I love (hashtag blessed, y’all), moved to Austin, purchased a home, and gotten married. That’s a lot of things! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed sharing these events, along with my daily life with you folks that have chosen to read along, but as I warned you, it’s time to move onto the next phase of life, which unfortunately doesn’t include blogging.
The blog will stay up a little while until my domain and hosting expires. So, if you haven’t looked at the Travel page, feel free to look around. I updated it while I’ve been working on publishing a book of travel blog posts. Better late than never, right?
