still kicking

I’m alive. Promise.

This is the longest ‘break’ I’ve taken from blogging since Build Your Bliss began over a year ago and, I assure you, It was far from intentional. Like I mentioned in my last two posts, things have been a little crazy over here and my head is forever spinning. But you know what? I’m happy. Really happy.

I also hinted at a few potential changes that I didn’t want to share until they were confirmed…

1. I’m moving

2. I got [another] job

I’ll delve into more detail about each in a future post but I figured it was about time I share the news. I’m not leaving LA, merely moving into an apartment of my own. Ah! Words cannot explain how excited I am. The job opportunity presented itself completely unexpectedly and, after one short week, I can say that I absolutely love it. I’m now working part-time as an account executive for a beauty and lifestyle PR company….along with my internship for the magazine and job at the restaurant. Whew.

And with all that being said, cue the picture vomit…

IMG_04272-Still Kicking1IMG_0471IMG_0452IMG_04891-Still KickingIMG_05493-Still Kicking2Randomness at its finest. I spent a few days in Manhattan Beach, a few days with my sister, and the rest of the time running around between jobs. If you had told me a year ago that I’d be doing all of this today, I would have called you crazy and walked the other way. None of this was ever part of my “plan” and I think that’s what makes it so perfect. It all just sort of happened.

Here’s to loving the crazy…

  6. So exciting, congrats girl!!! I’ve been working 2+ jobs for a few weeks,a nd it sure is busy. But so worth it! 🙂

      Thank you!

      And yessss…the multiple job game is crazy but I’m so happy to hear that you’re loving it! I am too. xo

  7. Aaaaaaahhhh!!! So happy for you Em!!!! That new job sounds so exciting! Right up your alley! You are such a hard worker and it’s all paying off! Congrats on the new apartment too!!

    • Emily said:

      Thank you so much, Kaila!
      Your constant support means more to me thank you’ll ever know. xo

  8. I’m so excited for you Emily!<3 I can tell how happy you seem and it's amazing to "see" how far you've come within the past year. Can't wait to hear more about all your new adventures! xoxo

    • Emily said:

      Aw, thank you!
      I can tell that you’ve come such a long way over the past year too and I couldn’t be happier for you. 🙂

    Congrats, girl! Your new job sounds so fun — honestly I would love to eventually transition into something like that if I get tired of the TV world so I might be emailing you about it in the future to get your take! Also, living in your own apartment is the BEST. I’ve been in a one bedroom since my junior year of college and it feels great to be so independent, and get to choose when you want to hang out with people and when you just need some alone time.

    • Emily said:

      Ahhh…I could SO see you working in PR. I think you would absolutely love it. I still have a lot to learn but feel free to email me anytime about it. 🙂

      I seriously can’t wait to have my own place– I’ve always had roommates so it’ll be a huge change. I already know I’m going to love it though (considering I mainly stay in my room now anyways!) haha

  10. I’m so happy for you! Congratulations on the job and new apartment. I wish you were moving somewhere closer to me so I could meet you. haha can’t wait to hear about all the details! 🙂 🙂

    • Emily said:

      Thank you!

      Oh, how I wish we lived closer. I would lovelovelove to meet you. Maybe one day I’ll have a reason to venture there (or vice-versa).
      🙂

      It’s such a relief when you finally find the perfect new home, isn’t it? Best of luck with your move! ❤

  12. I am not sure how I am JUST discovering you now. I love this little blog of yours. And I see we have a mutual friend is Carrie… It is like we are destined to be blogging friends.. But now that I am coming off a little strong it probably wont happen haha

    • Emily said:

      Ahh…and how have I never discovered YOUR blog? I love it! I may or may not have just spent like 20 minutes reading through a bunch of your old posts. lol. And Carrie is such a sweetheart.
      Thank you so much for commenting– we were definitely destined to be blogging friends. 🙂
