Ah, the change of seasons. Always a welcome development. It truly feels like fall has settled in, replacing the hot, humid days of summer. Every time the wind blows, I hear leaves that have already fallen from the trees scitter across the ground. A sure sign of the transition that is underway.
Speaking of change, it’s been just about a year since my last personal blog post. My grad school program and life in general diverted my attention from writing about my passions on a regular basis (it happens to the best of us). Four months after graduation, I find myself with both the time and desire to resume this pursuit. As I have focused heavily on digital media for the past two years, academically and professionally, I have a feeling that future posts will be split between health and fitness and developments, or at least points of controversy, in the journalism/communications field. There is much to talk about and debate these days.
I have to admit at the outset that I have somewhat fallen off the wagon with regards to eating well and exercising. Again, I will point to grad school and life more broadly as the reason. Of course, at the end of it all, it’s ultimately my lack of resolve and commitment when I got busy that are to blame. I’m dedicated to returning to a healthier lifestyle and hope to use this space as a way to hold myself accountable, and perhaps, find motivation. I’m definitely not as gung-ho as I used to be (hard to imagine, I know), but we all go through phases. Maybe I just haven’t hit the next upswing yet. Here’s to finding my stride!
