I know it’s been such a long time since I’ve been here. So much has happened, I hardly know where to begin. I think the main thing that has happened though is that I have accepted my new location and have begun to, well no, I am enjoying a lot of the perks and great little jewels that New York City holds. Now don’t get me wrong, I am still a suburban princess; I love a good driveway, a nice parking lot, and of course a yard, though I don’t have any of the above to call my own. Well, except the parking lot I share with my fellow STJ co-workers. I think it’s safe to say I have adjusted, and that in itself is another New York “first.”
So, a few details about what’s new with me. I changed jobs from a Judicial Coordinator to a Residence Director (interesting, I know). I got a two-bedroom apartment (not that important to some, but in NY space is VALUABLE) and I have a wonderful man in my life. I met this person soon after I re-located to New York. We had a couple dates and literally, we have been together ever since. So far, we have survived a couple family outings, a disastrous Christmas vacation and a long summer vacation and we didn't kill each other. Overall, I think it's going well…and that’s the last I’ll say about him. I am sure he will hate that he is even mentioned here, but in an upcoming post I’ll let him know why ☺
I guess that leaves only one more thing to discuss. I am turning my New York “Firsts” blog into a blog about the first time I am documenting make my struggle, no actually my success with my weight loss goals public. I have read so many blogs over the past couple months that have really inspired me. I hope they won’t mind me mentioning them here: www.alltheweigh.com and www.blackgirlsguidetoweightloss.com and www.mindingmyweigh.blogspot.com and many more that I’ll put on a list.
Wow. I said it. Now, I guess it’s just time to live it. I hope I will keep my two documented followers (hey Brit and Ry Ry ☺ ) and maybe a couple more people will join. Ok, now I am scared…
