Today: Begin

Soon, very very soon, this blog will be about my writing again.

But first, I must welcome a new beginning into my life. While things have been almost unbearable for months now, this beginning has me feeling refreshed, relieved, and excited for all of the future's possibilities.
I am going to enter the world alone, a single woman with big dreams and a fresh canvas that I can't wait to decorate in every color of the rainbow.

I'm in the process of looking for an apartment that is near to my work, family, and friends, a place that I can call mine, a place of comfort and familiarity without the confusion and questions I am confidently walking away from.

And the first item I'm purchasing? A new computer. Any advice in the computer department would be helpful...I'm really only looking to use the internet, write, and store some pics and music. And on the cheap side....I am single, after all, and it's an expensive world!

I'm a little nervous about living on my own, but I have visions of endless writing and reading time dancing in my head, especially since I won't have enough money to go out and spend! Which is fine with's something I need to do anyway. For too long now I've been neglecting my writing.
I've kept up with journaling and some things that have really helped me get through this whole ordeal, but if I want to make it out there in the publishing world, I have to work hard. I can't wait!

I've been around, catching up on everyone else's journies, but I've been absent socially. Working on that too!
I hope everyone else has been doing well and hopefully very soon I'll be posting pictures of my new place!
Love to all.


  1. Aww good luck with the search and your new beginning. Believe in the new.

  2. Best of luck with this new chapter in your life.

    I purchased a new laptop back in March - a HP Pavilion (which I love btw). I can't afford those lovely Macbooks everyone seems to have:) Anyway, it was a little over $500.00. I only use it to write and surf the net.

  3. You're gonna do great! Beginnings are full of amazing possibilities.

    I can't offer much computer advice. I love my old HP laptop (they don't make my kind anymore) and hope it never dies.

    Best wishes and Happy Friday!

  4. Best of luck on your new journey Julie! My only advice on purchasing a PC would be to get as much RAM memory as you can afford.

  5. I wish you the best of luck on your new beginning. I've found my own new beginning as well. Keep up the positive outlook and when things get rough, just do the one thing that makes you happy.
