Since January 1, 2013, I’ve been on a pretty consistent calorie counting diet. Though I have had struggles with it, when I was living on my own at college, it was much more manageable when I was buying my own groceries and cooking my own meals.

Since graduation, I have been getting endless support from family and friends, all across the country. Their support includes emotional and financial, but also, career support. I’ve gotten links to job postings, good words and references passed on, and much encouragement.

This is all wonderful, and goes to show how much people really do care about my success. Unfortunately, many of the items for the job search that have been passed onto me are not located in the state I currently and indefinitely live, and therefore are not ones I can consider at this time.

I don’t like summer. There, I said it. It’s just not a season that agrees with me.

I’ve written before about the relationship that I am in, and how very happy I am with my boyfriend. And yeah, like many couples, our relationship is on social media. Meaning, we are FBO, we have photos together, and I tweet his hilarity frequently.

Even though I am living in my 16-year-old room and environment, my inner elderly woman has really come to the surface since moving back home. I’ve always been a little bit of an old soul, but can force myself to liven up in order to become one with the living 20-somethings that I am friends with (and when I can’t do it, I #swug it out). My fellow contributor Annemarie touched on this sentiment in “I’m already an old cat lady,” but I really think the old woman mentality is even stronger when you’re unemployed and living with your parents.
