It's crazy to think that I've been running this blog for over five years now. A lot has changed since I've been blogging. At times I find myself missing the "good old" blog days. Everything wasn't an ad, people would just write to write, not to get paid, everyone had low numbers so it didn't feel like such a competition...
Some days I wish I could grow this space more, make it my full time gig. But I've accepted the fact long ago that it's just not possible, I don't know if I'm passionate enough to dedicate all my time to it (don't get me wrong, I really really love blogging). I am happy to have a hobby outside my "real" job. Does that make sense?
Anyway, enough with the nostalgia. I (everyone!) used to do fun little monthly "blogger challenges" back in the day, and it was pretty fun. It was a great way to get to know others and have something fresh to write about daily. I want to bring a little of that back, so I decided I will participate in some of the Blogtember prompt challenges (and you should, too!). I can't do it every day, but it will be fun to just write freely (not that I'm the best writer) and connect with my readers again (I appreciate each and every one of you!!).
Today is all about introductions. So...
Hello, I'm Rachel.
I'm 24 years old (turning 25 in a couple months - yikes). I'm half Japanese. I live in Oregon with my husband Justin who is rockin' his last year of law school right now. I work an awesome full time job as an administrative assistant for a realtor. If I've learned anything at this job, it's that I will never be a realtor. I love trying new foods. I love being outside. I'm a watercolor painting newbie but I love it. I would rather binge watch a television series than watch a movie. I love cats. My nails are always painted. I'm a terrible dancer but I am obsessed with the Top40 dance class at my gym. I'm a night owl, always have been. I love parties and get-togethers.
So, there. That's me! I'd love to get to know you guys a little better, too. Tell me about yourselves <3
