Holy Moly Matrimony Part II: When It’s Over
Life update for all you wonderful people who still read my stuff. I know it’s been awhile, but a lot of things have happened since my return home in April. Let’s just get to it.
As many of you may not know judging by various Facebook comments I’ve received, after 8 years, my partner and me didn’t quite make it into the history books as one of the world’s most steadfast romances that ended in bliss. It was a good run though.
Here’s the thing, it didn’t end up in tragedy either. I think that if two people were ever truly in love, it never really ends but it just changes. There were hard conversations and I know there’s probably more to come, but that’s ok because they get easier. There are more and more days lately, where the thought that I’m now single doesn’t cross my mind and I’m just me. It only took 8 months to get here.
No one died, we don’t hate each other, and life goes on. In July I packed up everything I owned and left Indiana. To those I left behind, you are always in my thoughts and I miss you every day. I left my job as well and now I’m stumbling through the world of how to be a nanny and am working on making writing a full-time thing. It’s a scary and wonderful time.
So here’s what we got, I’m a 31-year-old woman living in a place I’ve never been before, I’m surrounded by two precious friends and one amazing little girl (says the woman who stated she would probably never have kids). Society says I’m technically alone and it only bugs me occasionally. I interviewed at Barnes & Noble a couple weeks ago, and to my complete and utter shock, they didn’t hire me.
Oh well, more time to be awesome somewhere else while violently pumping my fist in the air and bouncing to the next dance floor.
There’s probably going to be a lot more stories about breakups (gross I know, but it’ll be fun I promise), tips on handling it, and other ramblings. Also know, I began the editing process on my book, so look for that to be out within the year.
