I've returned, and probably for good.

It may be that I've become introspective or retrospective, or some sort of spective as I round out my twenties, but I've felt the itch to blog lately, keep a journal (for the more personal matters), and start keeping better track of the pictures I take. So, to indulge this itch, I have decided to start back with the blogging.

A little refresher course for all of my five blog readers - I am 26 and 360 days old. I will turn the ripe age of 27 on May 5. I am "single" in the realm of I am not married. I have a boyfriend, the same one for the past 2 1/2 years. He is 34 and 345 days old. Quite the age difference, I already know. But we even each other out. We met in law school almost five years ago and are moving happily along our merry way. As you may have inferred from that last sentence, I am a lawyer. I have been one now since 2008. Most of my time during the day involves lawyerly activities where I try to convince myself that I am not just playing "lawyer", but that I am indeed an actual attorney. Sometimes its hard to convince myself of that. You laugh, but it happens.

I have recently taken up the sport of running. I was an avid running hater. I loathed it. Really I did, and sometimes I still do. But, in January, my secret running lover self emerged from some random place. Don't ask me how it happened because most days I can't answer that question for myself. All I know is that I joined a "running club" in January, and began running at 6:30 am every saturday morning thereafter. And as a result of this new "love" I signed up to run my first half marathon in November. Yes, 7 months away, but I decided that'll be how long it'll take to convince myself that I can actually run 13.1 miles. I'll keep y'all posted on that one.

I would describe my interests to you, but then what would that leave for you to keep reading about in my future posts? I have to do something to keep you around somehow..

So, what's the point of all this, I read a lot of blogs in my down time. They entertain me. Most of them involve babies or married people. I thought it might be an interesting perspective to read a blog about a 27 year old who isn't married, and who has no kids. So, please don't expect pictures of cute little babies or daily accounts of my routines with my husband. Not that I don't enjoy reading those myself, because I honestly do, so keep on trucking with those posts my friends. What you'll get from me are hopefully witty (although most of the time i'm not), interesting (in the eyes of the beholder), detailed (or not so detailed) ramblings of my daily experience and encounters as I attempt to navigate my way through the remaining years of my twenties. I can't promise a post everyday, but I can hopefully guarantee they'll be a little entertaining when they do happen.

Enjoy my friends.
