August is my favorite time of the year. Summer weather still hasn't fully kicked in, but fall is right around the corner and back-to-school shopping begins. My birthday is right around the start of classes, but I felt back-to-school shopping made up for it. My mom would get me set up with some new clothes, and some items I picked up were only because I played the "It's almost my birthday card." Now I really look forward to fall because I associate it with an updated wardrobe for a fresh start to the new year. I've gotten into the habit of getting myself birthday presents, but that's a topic for another blog post.
Lately I've felt I am in need of something new in my life. It might be a new haircut, an updated wardrobe or maybe simply changing the decor around in my apartment. I know I've considered changing jobs, and it really might just be that. I haven't had the motivation to really get out there and search, but I have redesigned my resume and have kept it as up-to-date as possible. The school year is starting again, but I am no longer a student. I thought I'd really know what I would want to do sometime after graduating, but I feel just as lost as I did when I graduated. As you might have guess, I have been very reflective and unsure of where to go next, and I think it has to do with my looming birthday coming up. Luckily, I am an optimistic person and believe I'll be find inspired by something soon. Maybe you'll see me, or the site, with a new look. Or maybe I'll have a new look on life. One thing's for sure, I'll definitely have a few new items in my wardrobe for fall.
