The Darling Nomadess: Life Update

Life Update

Life has been pretty crazy lately and I'm really missing blog time! In the past two weeks, I moved a few hours from home and took a job in the hospitality industry. I am absolutely loving my job thus far! I love that I am able to interact with people all the time and ensure that their vacation is the vacation of their dreams.

While I love my job, the hours are CRAZY. I work 40-60 hours on the weekends and then have a few weekdays off. This causes a dilemma for me. I want to keep up with my blog but I want to just relax and sleep on my days off. Mind you, it's only been two weeks  but I'm finally getting the hang of it and hope to be back to blogging 5 days a week next week.

Hanging out with new friends after hours 
I've also made lots of new friends, especially my co-workers. They're some of the most interesting people I've ever met. Many of them are international workers so I love hearing about their stories abroad and experiences from their homelands. It just deepens my wanderlust desires!

Speaking of wanderlust, I think I have created my "plan." My contract is up with my current place of employment in November (it's just a temporary job). I'm currently in contact with a few families to be an au pair (fingers crossed for Italy!). Once I complete my term as an au pair, I hope to backpack through Europe, solo.

This whole plan is completely terrifying but so completely exciting! I'm ecstatic for all the adventures to come. The other good thing about my job and befriending international workers is knowing I'll have a place to stay when I visit certain regions!

Well enough about me, tell me what's been going on in your life! I miss you darlings!

What is your favorite thing about blogging? I love the friends I have made.  The blogging community is something else.  
Why do you blog? I originally started my blog to document memories, and since then it has become a space for all that and more.  My blog is a place for me to share what I've learned about long distance relationships, share the word of God to help others, and share recipes with friends I've never met.
Besides blogging, what are your favorite hobbies? Clogging, baking & taking pictures.
Fun fact about yourself: I am not a chocolate fan (am I even human?!); for 7 other facts you may (or may not) want to know about me check outthis post.
With Love,
