Thoughts for Thursday

I'm so excited, this is my first link up! I feel like I'm growing up in the blogging world it kind of feels like the first time you are allowed to stay up past 8.30pm when you're a kid. Random? Yes. Super awesome and exciting? Also yes.

I got married about a month ago and it was the most perfect day of my life. I remember sitting at the reception thinking 'I wouldn't change a thing', which is a huge win when you have the level of type A self-criticism that I do. I planned our North Carolina wedding from Australia and everything just fell perfectly into place. I am so in love and so happy. 

With that said, we get to the meat of my thought for this Thursday- 'Post Wedding Aimlessness*'. I'd like to preface this with - I am actually a really relaxed person but I like to have a plan and a purpose. About 3 or 4 days into our honeymoon in gorgeous Puerto Rico I realized I had no plan or aim or thing that I was working towards. Our wedding which had consumed the previous 6 to 12 months of my thoughts was over. 


I kind of freaked out for a couple of hours. This might sound silly, this might not happen to everyone but for me, this realization was horrible. Nobody told me that this could happen, I was not warned! Add into the mix the jarring reality (read -identity crisis) that "I don't even know how to sign my own name anymore", and we have the perfect storm.

I calmed down after a while and for a couple of days in the back of my mind kept mulling over where my life might be headed next. Should we move? Should we think about having kids now? Should I look for a new job? Should we get another dog? Jon and I talked it all out, possibilties, pros, cons etc. After all of this (and more..) I'm pleased to say - I am starting my Masters in August!

*But seriously, be warned 'Post Wedding Aimlessness' is a real thing if you are crazy like me
