Have you ever given so much of yourself and become so consumed in one aspect of your life that it becomes 'who you are'?
Sure, some people have good reason and just cause for their consumption, like caring for an ill-family member, or raising a brood, or moving to a third-world country to build water-wells.
My obsession was nothing so worthy. It was my job, and it wasn't even that great of a job. Sure I found it interesting but my family and friends certainly didn't, especially when it ate up so much of my time and it was the only thing I ever had to talk about...
There was just something about it that sucked me in. I ate, slept and breathed my work and I was stuck in a 'half-life' state while the best of my years passed by and 'OMG I'm 30!' went by without a second glance. I tried to find other pastimes to drag my mind away, like my sporadic but semi-successful blog that I was quite proud of, but even that fell on the wayside every time work got a bit 'hectic' again.
And now I'm not there anymore.
Poof! Just like that. No more job. I'm not that person anymore. I'm just plain old Emma. And my old blog lies dormant, with lost friends and followers and an extended absence that makes it too hard to go back to. I'm not that person anymore.
So this is my new blog, documenting my new life, my new loves and hopefully keeping the best parts of the old Emma along for the ride....
and maybe some old friends and followers would like to come too???
