What I’m Into Volume 54

As I said in Wednesday’s post, I’ve been slacking a little bit on the blogosphere in exchange for spending time offline. I’ve had to do some major adjusting lately. My head and heart are trying to grapple with the fact that I’m in a new chapter of life. Instead of buying textbooks this year, I bought a car (very exciting, though). Instead of living in Pittsburgh, I’m back home.

While these changes have been good in many ways, life still feels weird. It’s a new normal that I’m trying to get used to. So with fall arriving soon, I’m taking it as an opportunity to restart and refresh, and adjust to my new normal.

Before signing off, I’d like to acknowledge what today means in American history. September 11 will always be a vivid memory for me and many of us. Today, and every day, we remember the heroes who lost their lives that day.

    I totally understand! Transitional periods can be great for the soul but hard to adjust. Keep your head up! Hope you have a great weekend, Ellen!

    Good luck transitioning, girl! I thinking spending time offline is really important anyway. I hope you can find what balance works for you. The procrastinating article looks really interesting. I’m bookmarking it to read later!

    All the best,
