I'm Not Dead we are.

I just read the last post I published on this blog which was nearly TWO YEARS ago. I wrote about Lent and recommitting myself to being healthy.

Clearly, that didn't work out.

The end of 2011 and basically all of 2012 was probably the most difficult 15 months or so of my life. A very close and dear friend unexpectedly passed away and that seemed like the beginning of a lot of strife in various aspects of my life. But here I am, on the other(ish) side of things. Ready to take back control of my own life and try once again to become a healthier version of me.

Not only does this mean the obvious losing weight, but I need to focus a lot on my mental health as well. I need to work on being more social and not just hiding out in my apartment, looking at funny cat pictures on the internet while hunched over my laptop like I should be ringing bells in Notre Dame. I need to learn that a day off from work doesn't mean I can just lay around in bed all day, and unfortunately, I think I need to let go of some friendships that have deteriorated and seem to have no hope of revival.

So here's to a new year, and hopefully...FINALLY...getting my shit together.
