Six Months - Living It Up

*Written December 5th, 2013*

Today marks exactly 6 months post-divorce. 

It feels so weird to say that - some days it feels like it just happened and some days I forget how long it's actually been.

Anyway, for those of you who follow me on Twitter or Instagram or are friends with me on Facebook, you know that the past 6 months have been…interesting. To say life after divorce is a roller coaster would be the understatement of the century.

Every day, every moment, it's a toss up with how I'll feel. I can go days at a time without thinking of Josh, our old life, or the memories. But on the days I do remember, it's hard to shake the emptiness and I find myself wanting only three things - food, Netflix, and someone to hold me.

That being said, I'm doing better than I thought I'd be doing at this point in time. Remember those days when I couldn't do anything but cry and blog? Well, I'm pleased to say those days are far behind me! I've been keeping busier than ever before (and that's saying something) and love every second of my exhausting life.

I'm working 2 jobs - a nanny and a hostess/events assistant at a local country club - and I'm going back to school full time for event management. Only 2 semesters left and I'll officially be certified.

The past few months I've traveled a bit (post coming soon on my trip to see Jamie!!!), gotten out of my shell by going out to karaoke every other weekend, made new friends, and so much more. I'm actually very proud of my anti-social self!

Speaking of being anti-social…I've also started DATING again! *gasp* In my 4 month update (which, yes, I only posted two days ago) I mentioned that I'd created an online dating profile back in June. I wasn't prepared for how horrible dating was going to be in the beginning, but I think I've fallen into a good groove recently and I'm enjoying myself immensely. Stay tuned for a post on the nightmarish messages I've received - they're a hoot and a half, y'all.

Anyway, that's an overview of what I've been up to the last few months and I'll keep you updated in 3 or 6 month increments…I have yet to decide.

I hope you're all doing well and I CAN'T WAIT to catch up on your blogs over the Christmas break. :)
