I’M BACK! Miss me? Probably not. Gonna still read this pointless blog? I sure hope so.
College and the bar really kept my creative juices flowing and made this blog so effortless to write. The corporate world lately has crushed my spirit making me have to scan my brain for something entertaining enough to share with you. But you won’t know that because you haven’t read my update yet.
It’s been 9 long month (holy cow it’s been a while) but here’s the Sparknotes version of what I’ve been up to.
I graduated with my MSW and turned 24 the next day. Realized college degrees don’t do much for you besides make a nice wall filler. I also wore jeans and a t-shirt to graduation. Highly recommend.
Turned down an incredible job in Florida and moved back to Maryland on a whim without any of my stuff or a job.
Saw the Jonas Brothers. Cried.
Ordered Grubhub for the first time which is a big deal (TBT to Irrational Fear of Food Delivery blog which now lives with the hacker).
Saw the Jonas Brothers again. Cried again.
Went on a hike with an old friend and saw a really cute hiker boy who I gave my number to. I took a sweaty selfie on his phone to make as my contact pic and I still regret it. Learn from my mistakes.
Boy I liked (referred to in To All the Boys Who Fucked Me Over) who flirted and then told me he only wanted to be friends proposed to a girl. Was I overthinking? 100%. Did it still hurt my heart? You know it. FRIENDSHIP 🙂
Attempted to go streaking. Failed.
Was featured for 1.5 seconds in The Bucket List Family’s video on youtube (go to 8:46). Check it out. Check them out. There is nothing to not love.
Quarter life crisis in full swing!!! Trying to live up my 20’s while being broke and simultaneously starting my career while trying to find a job that makes me happy. Nobody warns you how life just kinda hits ya in the face. I miss college. *SIGH*
Went on a date with hiker boy on September 8th, two weeks after said hike. And another one the next weekend. And another one the next weekend. And well another one every weekend since. And yes, I did show him Zoe’s Thoughtz on the first date. Would not recommend. Yet here we are so maybe I would recommend.
Had a Toaster Strudel for the first time. Really regret not trying one before now.
Applied to jobs in Maryland and accepted an AMAZING job at a new practice just starting up. Quit the job a week before it started due to a lack of confidence in my ability to be a social worker.
Made a Youtube channel called Zoe’s Kitchen Concert. Recorded 3 weeks of videos. Posted my first video. 24 hrs later deleted Zoe’s Kitchen Concert. Youtube is not meant for me. Got this snazzy pic from my concert though so I think it was a win. Still have those videos if you want one.
Living at my grandparents house: BLESS THE GRANDPARENTS. Rent free. My own bedroom and dinner when they’re home. Occasional shopping trips. Thankful for them.
Still watching The Bachelor. Still wondering if they ever got my application sent in pre-hiker boy. Now sad realizing I will have to turn it down if they contact me cause *cough cough* hiker boy is better.
Got a temporary job while trying to figure out my life and I spend my day spinning in my spinny chair for $14 an hour. While spinning I noticed nobody else spins in their chair. That was the moment I realized I was not meant for corporate America.
Drove 3 hours to New Jersey to try White Castle. 30 minutes later we drove 3 hours back home. Was good. Was full. (I ate 2, hiker boy ate 12).
Found out I am going to be an AUNT in MAY!!!!! The most excited about this one. Turned down jobs I applied for in different states once I found out I was getting a niece. AUNT ZOE REPORTING FOR DUTY.
I WENT CROWD SURFING AT AN AUGUST BURNS RED METAL CONCERT AND IT WAS INCREDIBLE (video at the bottom). Check that off the bucket list.
