Anndddddd, I’m back!
Hi Tumblr loves! I’m so excited to officially announce that I’m back. Wow, it’s been seven months since I decided to take a break from the blog, and five since I moved from Georgia! A lot has happened since I left.
So, I’ll do a pretty brief catch-up, and let you know what I have planned for the blog.
As many of you know, I took a somewhat long hiatus from the blog to end my job at a nonprofit in Georgia, move to Perry Point, MD from Georgia, and accept a Field Team :Leader position with AmeriCorps NCCC. The last seven months have been a whirlwind of chaos, adventure and self-discovery. For those of you who aren’t familiar with AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corp), you travel the country with a team of 18-24 year-olds and strengthen communities through team-based community service. You get A LOT done for the organizations you work with, and you help develop leaders. Cool, right? I’ve been supervising a team of 9 since February, and it’s been awesome.
So, let’s start from the beginning…
In January, I moved my dainty, journalist self from Georgia to Perry Point, MD, where it snowed the first day I arrived, and I met herds of deer as I’ve never seen before.
I met all 27 of these crazy kids, and we boarded the “crazy train” for NCCC. Then, five of my friends and I published a book,”The 365 Project: The Year of Getting Back to Me.” I finally discovered I loved my natural hair…and then my boyfriend and I of five years broke up.
