Change is the only constant

No truer words have ever been spoken. Nearly 6 weeks since my last post and so much has changed in my life since my move. Thankfully, all good changes.

Here's what's happened in the past 6 weeks or so:
  • My roommates: Monica and Ava. Both girls are sweet as pie. Ava has quickly become one of my closest girlfriends and I can easily see as my best friend for possibly a life time. I've never had a connection with a girlfriend quiet like the one I have with Ava. She's my girl and I adore her. Monica - we had it out with each other maybe 4 weeks after I moved it. It wasn't a terrible fight but I did say things that were hurtful. I had become very frustrated with her mostly because we have very different was of living. Very different. But we talked and we're the better for it. Kind broke the ice between us. Now we know how to live together so that we're both happy. She's sweet and wildly funny. Endearing. I'm happy to say we all live happily and peacefully together. This alone is a small miracle I think. It's not easy to live with anyone.
  • Food: I gave up my daily morning cup of coffee. Yes it can be done. It was difficult the very first week. I took Motrin when needed but after the first week I was fine. I have a cup every so often but it's not a full on addiction. I used to have 2 cups a day. Sometimes 3 and I had tension in my shoulders and back that I never could get rid of. Bye bye coffee, bye bye shoulder and back pain. My 4pm chocolate attacks also vanished as well has my late night ice cream cravings. I have lost 8lbs and counting :) I have also made the switch to Organic everything. I'll go into that in another post.
  • Mom: My mom moved in with me this weekend. This will take adjusting but I do love having her around. She moved up from FL and is already adapting to NY very well. I have one brave mama. She's started her job hunt already. More on this to come I'm sure.
  • Career: I have always dreamed of being running my own company. I've already taken steps in that direction. More on that too later.

I have a laptop now so I'll be back to posting. I'll be commenting on your blogs as well very soon. I've missed you all!


  1. YAY! Welcome back!

    I thought your mum opted not to move to NY? What changed her mind?

    Glad you're getting along swimmingly with your flatmates.
