So… the last time I checked in it was July 2016.
That year ended.
And now it’s 2018.
Hi! How have you been!?
I’m 24 now, working at my second job and living in my second apartment since graduating college.
Life has been full of change – new jobs, new apartments, new friends, new lessons learned.
Life has been hectic – moving, friendships changing, spending time with family and friends, and figuring out what I want (or don’t want) to do.
Life has been fun – football games, nights out, nights in, vacations, holidays, happiness, and growth.
Life has been stressful – leaving a job and saying goodbye to coworkers I loved, moving to a new apartment with new roommates, and figuring out how to be an adult (spoiler alert: totally haven’t figured this out yet).
Life has been crazy, but life has been – and is – really good.
One of my goals for 2018 was to get back to blogging, and here I am on January 15th, 2018, finally back on here – even if it’s just for a minute.
While the URL is still “LaurRuns,” my plan is to take this space on the internet in a new direction.
Though I’ve always been authentic and I’ve always written whatever I wanted on here, I want my blog to be even more real. I don’t want to do what others are doing just because I know what gets liked on Instagram or shared on Twitter.
I want to be truly “me.” I want to share my thoughts, voice my opinions, and tell my story.
That doesn’t mean this will be a diary of deep, dark, juicy thoughts… Well, maybe sometimes it will be. But, most the time, it will be a place where I share my daily musings, my outfits, my favorite things, my workouts, my latest eats, and the fun I have with my friends and family.
Along the way, I’ll just be trying to dig deeper and share more of what’s on my mind.
Though I’m still young – I just turned 24 five days ago – and though it’s only been a year and half since I last wrote here (ugh I know, that is a long time…sorry!!) – I have been through a lot since we last spoke.
I’ve been in the “real world” for almost 2 years now and I’ve experienced things I hadn’t yet while I was still a college kid.
The country and the world have changed and we’ve all changed along with the times. And I have a lot to say about it.
My job has changed, my thoughts and beliefs have evolved, and I have learnt, grown, and changed, too.
Anyway, that’s enough for today – I’ll be back in the new few weeks to catch you up on things.
