Back in Action / #backthatazzup

Long time, no talk. Okay so I was the worst blogger this week, as in I didn't post a single time until today.

I'm truly sorry for going MIA this week because I'm sure you were all filled with worry about where I was/what I was doing/why I left you without my fabulous musings for a whole week. Well this week I was a blogger enjoying some family time. My cousin and her husband stopped to stay with us on their way home to Florida and my aunt is visiting for a few days. Plus add to that this is my younger sister's last week of summer before starting school next week. And today is my older sister's birthday.

When I decided not to look for a summer internship it was because I decided I wanted to take this summer to really enjoy being home with my family for probably the last time. It hit me this week that while I'd spent the entire summer here, I hadn't really spent it with my family. I was so consumed with writing this blog, looking for a job, and obsessively watching television shows I never was able to watch before that I forgot about my whole reason for being here.

This was the first summer since 9th grade that I spent at home with zero obligations to anyone else, and it was refreshing. I've always been a doer, someone who hated to just sit home with nothing to do. While I loved every summer adventure I've had in my past it was nice to finally take a summer break. This was probably (hopefully) my last summer vacation and while it's easy to be jealous of my friends who are already working their dream jobs, I'm glad I took a break.

So I will leave you with this song as I go to celebrate the 25th birthday of my first friend. I hope you all enjoyed your week as much as I enjoyed mine.
