Hi Friends! I know it’s been awhile and I’m sorry for that. I had this feeling that perhaps Bohobrain was a little too deep and maybe I would gain something from laying off my psyche for a bit. However I am back and happy to be. I think writing is healthy and really helpful, so here I am!
For a brief update from where we left off, I am back at home in Pennsylvania. I kicked off a new semester at a new school a few weeks ago. Am I crazy for transferring 3 times, eh maybe! I was actually sort of embarrassed of this fact up until lately. I faulted myself for not finding a place that seemed like the right fit to get an education. However I think there is a method to my madness, so I took to Boho to explain…
I recently quit a new job, and by ‘new’ I mean I was still in the training phase. I got this overwhelming sense one day that this position wasn’t going to make me happy. I knew from just a few days there, that I didn’t want this for myself. I now have to bust my butt to find another job but I am pleased with my decision.
I came to the conclusion after quitting, that I don’t settle because I don’t want to settle. I don’t settle with guys, I certainly don’t settle with schools, and apparently not with part-time jobs.
So what’s my point? I understand that throughout life we are all required to suck it up and dealing with things that are far from thrilling. With this said, yes life is not all roses but is there a problem with searching for a few occasional roses here and there? I certainly don’t think so!
My advice: Search for a few roses right now, even if it means taking a risk. A few roses are better than no roses :)
P.s. It’s good to be back!
We had a much anticipated yard sale a few weekends ago. It was fun because we were preparing the whole week before and hoping to make a pretty penny off of our old goods. My friend Paul came along to help, and when he is around everything is hilarious. Check out some of the picture!
Things started off slow and kind of boring at 7:30 AM. Luckily we made fun of the items we were selling to pass the time…
This last picture we are laughing because as we were posing a group of customers walked up! Hahaha! Fun day!
This Friday marks the end of my first week as a full time workin’ momma. I’ve had what was considered part time jobs, where I worked full time hours but nothing like this job. This is the first job where I feel like an adult. Drinking coffee early in the morning in order to start my long day in the workforce. I work at a kid’s day camp and for as hectic as it is, I actually really like it. The kids are a handful but so adorable. It is so cool how quickly they learn your name and feel comfortable enough to come up to you and vent their woes about never being first in line. Although for as cute as it is, come Friday morning I was up early, ready to get the day over with and relax for the weekend. And can you believe that by Saturday morning I was bored, looking for things to fill the empty space.
I dislike stress big time. I actually don’t really know how to handle it. But nothing beats a day where you jam-pack so much into it, that by 10 o’clock at night you can’t keep your eyes open. Some of my most positive memories are from the most active days. Those days that end knowing they were filled with purpose.
Purpose is really important to me. I want to be able to make an impact. I like to end my days feeling fulfilled. And for that I really like this job, and that is something I don’t say often.

After redecorating my whole room when I got home from college, I realized that something wasn’t doing it for me any more. So I got (what I thought would be) a brilliant idea to switch rooms with my younger brother. His room is painted navy blue and dark green. I felt like I was up for the challenge. After moving I was a little bummed but now I am starting to really like what I have done with the place ;)
Here are some pics:
I am still working on some finishing touches but I love decorating and having a new space!
Just some more photos of the beauty I ignore in PA. Today there was a cute little canoe race that my family was in. Me, my mom, and best friend where the cheerleaders and picture takers of the day. It was a lot of fun!
Check it out:
And they’re off!
Proud watchers! We are gearing up for next year!
Really good day!
Me and my 3 friends refer to ourselves as the Fab Four. We have this tradition that whenever we are all home, we go to Friendly’s to get a “12 Scoop”. Yes a 12 scoop sundae….12 scoops with 6 toppings. We are gross.
We went a few days ago but the fourth of our fab was working, so it was just the 3 of us. We wimped out of finishing a 12 scoop ourselves, so we went for milkshakes and fries. It was beautiful to say the least.
So I am sorry for ever insulting the lame area I live in. Sights like this are rare to find in many other places.
