Oh WOW…its been a while

Posted on Updated on

Dear readers,

I’m sorry I’ve been away. I didn’t realize how long it has been. It’s been over TWO MONTHS since my last post. A lot has been happening so we have a lot to catch up on. We will do this the easiest/ my favorite way….LISTS!

Welll lets see:

Life: My 26th birthday was back in November. If we are being honest 25 kind of sucked. Well most of 2017 sucked. I have deemed it a transition year. I declared to my good friend  (and DC bff ) the 26 would be the year of ME. I would put myself first and worry about myself instead of everyone else. According the my therapist, I like to help other people with their problems to avoid my own. She then said something very powerful and sad. She said, “Meghan why hasn’t it been like that for the last 25 years?!?!” She had a point. This year I am making a point to “do me”.  I have spent too many years walking on eggshells to try to keep the peace. NOOOOO MORE!!

Health: MEH UGH BLAH. Where do we start. Sometime in September my left foot started bothering me. I ignored it until right before Thanksgiving (aka 2 months). It turns out I have really bad peroneal tendonitis and a partial tear. WOMP WOMP WOMP. This landed me in a boot for three weeks, a brace for about a month and physical therapy until further notice. I plan to work very hard to get my tendon back to where it should be. I want to try run a marathon this year. Root for me guys.

The crohns has also been weird. I ate too much “bad food” aka peanuts and popcorn right around Christmas. This resulted in me being in lots of pain multiple times and having to go on a bland diet for a week. I’ve learned my lesson and will not be pushing my limits anymore. My next infusion is Feb 14th. I have a hot date with and IV and my nurse. OHHHH JOY.

Work: GREAT NEWS GUYS. I quit my job! Don’t worry. I have a new job. It was a terrifying but yet exhilarating giving my two weeks notice at my previous job. I was at that job for nearly 3 years. It was my first job out of college. It was the reason I moved to Maryland. It has been all that I have known. It was needed though. It was time for a change. My work environment had become toxic. I wasn’t being treat well and was not getting paid well. In the three years that I worked there I never got a promotion and got maybe 3% raise. THAT IS BAD!! You know it is also bad when other coworkers were getting upset on my behalf. They told me I deserved better and that I was being treated like shit. My manager even had to nerve to tell me she was disappointed in my productivity in December and wanted me to do more…..I WAS IN A BOOT AND WAS ONLY ALLOWED TO DO DESK WORK!!!! I ALSO KEPT ASKING FOR MORE WORK!!! **FACE PALM**  Lucky for me, I had friends in other places. A good friend and former coworker had a job lined up for me. I hauled it back to Maryland the day after Christmas for an interview. Great news. I started on Monday. The job is great and a much better work environment. Bonus point: We have a lab chameleon and I’m obsessed with him!!!!!

Dating: well well well….we have gotten to this topic. I am still seeing the guy I mentioned a few posts back. We shall call him Ab’s. You can use your imagination why 😉 .  I will totally admit that I was hesitant to date at all at first. I was unsure with him. My friends said that was a bad sign, but it wasn’t. If we are being honest I am unsure about everyone at first. My mom says when you meet the right one you will know right away but I don’t believe. I know how I work. I was unsure about YOU and JM. They were both people I ended up caring for a lot…..ugh. Abs and I have been seeing each other for about 3ish months. We started talking back in October but didn’t officially go on a date until right after my birthday in November. Things are going well. We are exclusive and see each other regularly. He drives me nuts 50% of the time and makes me smile the other 50%. We will see where this goes but I’m excited to see what the future has in store for the two of us.

If anyone is wonder about JM…well he’s still around. We are doing our best to be friends but it’s weird. It will be weird for a while and that’s just how it’s going to be. We are in the same friend group so we are going to have to still see each other. I’ve never been friends with an ex before so this is weird. Maybe soon I’ll tell the story of when Ab’s and JM met. Oh and when I met his new GF too……

I know I’m a little late but HAPPY NEW YEAR guys! May 2018 be your best year yet. Happy new year from me and my two favorite friends here in the DMV
