So apparently 2013 was the year of not so many blog posts. Through out the past few months, I had the best of intentions to change that reality, however life always came first and when I did have time, I wasn’t sure what to post.
December was a month of travel. The first week of travel was just for the two of us. I had won a 50% off dive trip in a local raffle and it was too good to let the opportunity go to waste. Over the course of the week, we realized how stressed the two of us were leading up to the vacation - my family, school, work, applications, and life were all weighing down on us, and neither of us really had the energy to deal so we both mentally checked out. But after spending a week in the ocean, both of us felt renewed and almost reluctant to go home.
The second week of Dec was spent gearing up for the last two weeks of travel. With me visiting family in Taiwan, and W. visiting family in WA. The blur and excess that come with holidays and family was all over too quick and not quick enough. Strangely enough, I welcomed the end of travel…since it only meant that I could see W again - I missed him that much.
Two weeks into the the new year, and the dust is finally settling. Jet lag is almost gone, and W. and I have slowly gotten back to our pre-travel routine. I don’t know if it’s because it is still the new year but there is a lightness to our steps, a hope of better and greater things to come despite things looking kinda grim on the horizon.
At the moment, I will simply just buckle down and mentally prep my self for the year to come. I hope that the two of us will be able to hold that lightness in our hearts once the storm descends later on in the year.
I don’t know why the tone became so maudlin in this post, but fear not, there will soon be adventures to come as well! Such as my inability to join the yogis but I insist, and my turtle pace of running returns.
Anyways, I should probably shut up now and talk another day….
So, how has everyone else been? New year treating ya’ll alright?
