Moving. Moving. Moving.

Today's post is going to be on a personal level. No, I'm not going to drag out all the skeletons in my closet, of which are not very many. . . No comment. I'm just going to tell you some great news! After a while of living with my parents, I've moved. Finally! 

I know you are all gasping at that, but hey in other cultures adults live with their parents for their entire lives. I would know cuz I got a degree in Anthropology. So don't give me any crap about it. Bahahaha! The good thing was while living with my parents I was able to pay off some debt that was nagging at me. So all in all it was a super good excuse to have some Mommy and Daddy time. 

Well, I knew it was time to get out of dodge and find my inner independent self again. I've lived away from home many times, though. Let me tell you, the first time I ever left the nest, I moved to England. If that's not a drastic change for a first-time-out-of-the-house-nineteen-year-old girl, what is?

Being in my new place (which is wicked nice) is liberating. I've put my life on hold for far too long and now its time to fly like a bird in a great new life and experiences. I'm going to encounter lots of new people including two room mates I've never met before. It's going to be great. And I'm happy about it! 

And what's even better is it is way closer to where I work. Great for a girl that has a hard time getting her butt out of bed in the morning. 

What new things are going on in your life? Have you had a time where you felt like you've put your life on hold? How did you break free from the chains? 

Well, I better get back to unpacking all my books. Sheesh, I'm glad I had some muscle help me move.

Writing. Jewels.


  1. My life doesn't have as much going on or as big a news as moving, but... Back in the fall, I was swamped with October releases to review, and I had to postpone reading some books that I'd been wanting to read in order to review those books. A lot were good, but it's liberating to read without the pressure of having to churn out a review :)

  2. Kris - It is always great to read for pleasure. It's always a perk! Thanks for you comment!

  3. YEA!!! Glad things are working out for you. I am soooooo excited and want to come see your new place. :)

  4. Congrats on the newfound freedom (again)! It's great when life feels like it's moving forward. I just signed up for the Warrior Dash in April, so I'm putting myself through a 4-month training "boot camp" to get ready for it. Growing up, I was always a chunky kid, so feeling in-shape enough to do this is quite a milestone for me :)

  5. Awesome to hear your move went well, Julia! Nice to see a plan come together.

    I've been away from the writing for the holidays, taking a break away from it all, I suppose. It's nice. No Twitter, blogging, FB, commenting, etc. After this comment, I'm going back into my hole to rest up for the next week. It's been great staying away!

    So...I guess that's what's new with me...
