New Year, New Me

Hello everyone! A lot has happened since I last wrote, which was . . . forever ago, I think. I honestly don’t even remember. Could’ve been two centuries ago, for all I know.

Welcome to 2022! You know, 2021 wasn’t too bad. I mean, it was bad, but it wasn’t bad, if you know what I mean. However, I am glad to leave it behind, and 2022 is going to be my year. And do you know why? I have clear goals and ambitions this time! No more wishy-washy, I am back for good.

Anyway, updates. I discarded college, throwing it right into the trash where it belongs, and moved instead to Florida, where my parents moved right before I went to college. I’ve been in Florida for around two weeks. I don’t know if anyone knows this, but I used to live in Utah. Utah is a desert, and Florida is more tropical. The change has been super weird.

For starters, it’s super wet here. Even the very air is hard to breathe because there’s so much moisture in it. When I got here, I could literally feel the weight of the water in the air pressing down on me from all sides. This humidity has changed a lot about my life. For one, I don’t need lotion as much anymore. I consider that an absolute win, although it might be balanced out by how much sunscreen I have to put on.

I’ve gone to the beach once, and we’re currently on our way to a different beach, and I must say, the beaches here, or at least the one I went to, have so many shells. In Portugal, there’s not as many shells.

Also, it’s warm here? Even at night I don’t need a jacket, and there’s no snow. I don’t think you understand. I went from blizzard season to summer season. People in Florida are talking about how cold it is right now, but they are wimps. They know nothing of cold.

Baking is weird here too. I made brownies and cookies yesterday for our New Year’s party, and the experience was just weird, and they tasted different. It’s going to take a while before I get the hang of cooking nearer to sea level.

In any case, my family and I celebrated Christmas and New Years, and now the holidays are over. Soon, my brother will go back to Utah, my little sister will go back to school, and I will have all the time in the world to focus on writing.

Well, not all the time in the world. I do have a job, and I’m slowly getting more hours. I much prefer working at home to an “actual” job. Have I ever told you guys how much I detest working?

I think I will write here once a month to update you guys. If all goes well, 2022 will be the best year of my life to date. I’m super excited, and I hope you guys are too. Part of my New Year’s resolution is to be more active on social media, so I post at least once a day on there. If you want to keep in touch, check any of those out, although Instagram and Twitter are my go-to. I’ve all but given up of TikTok. It’s just not the place for an author, or maybe it’s just not the place for me. Those socials are on the side bar, I’m too lazy to put the links in the actual post.

Well, I’ll see you guys next month! Byeeeeee!
