Aka that time I awkwardly dropped off the face of the (blog) planet for a few months.
I could give some really detailed and complex excuses but in a nutshell there was a broken computer phase, a dodgy-internet at my parents place phase, a living in a backpacker hostel with no internet phase, a living in a new house with no furniture let alone internet phase, and then as the cherry on top, an absence of motivation/inspiration/creative genius ( 😉 ) phase. The general theme was internet issues/first world problems hence the reference to #amishlife because that is seriously how it felt at times.
Does anyone else feel like 2016 was all.over.the.show?!
At the beginning of the year I was living in Sydney in a tiny less than 100 square ft. studio, finishing my masters in psychotherapy, and waitressing like a BEAST.
(Bestie and I doing a welcome ceremony on the floor of aforementioned tiny apartment).
In the middle of the year I was living in rural Auckland, New Zealand with my awesome parents, drinking copious amounts of tea, job-hunting like a beast.
The end of 2016 (WHAAAT) found me living in Rotorua (aka volcano country), New Zealand, living in a normal house for the first time in my adult life, and working my dream job (like a beast) as a family therapist.
I’ve done a tonne of running, continued with BBG, joined a netball team, gone through quite the extreme yoga phases, started a new workout program (#S2BM) and just recently joined an amazing running club. It has been quite a different year for me workout-wise, in particular with the introduction of BBG, but I feel like I have learned SOOO much and definitely pushed myself through about a billion sweaty workouts.
And being on holiday now, all there is left for me to do is relax and bask in the hot beachy New Zealand summer. I’m pretty sure I can do that in the beastiest way possible.
And I really think that’s more than enough about me for now 😉
How are YOU GUYS??? I have missed you!!
Is it a White Christmas or a Beach Christmas for you?
What was awesome about 2016 for you?
