Welcoming Pink Zin Back to the Blog World!

Happy Monday Readers! 

First and foremost, I sincerely apologize from my absence from the blog world! Things have been a bit crazy up here in Boston lately and I simply could not find the time or energy to get back to a normal blogging schedule. I cannot believe that it's been over a month since I've posted- I feel absolutely terrible! Truth be told, I've been going through a bit of a rough patch since the semester started and especially over the last six weeks and lost my way a bit. No reason to go into serious detail via this blog but I know it has a lot to do with losing a sense of who I am with all the serious changes in my life approaching.  I've always been able to define myself by something or know exactly who I am and who I want to be. Six months ago, I probably would have easily been able to tell you where I wanted to be in five years. Now, I'm not too sure. The future is a lot scarier than I thought it was going to be and with it comes overwhelming feelings of anxiety and nerves. I'm sure all graduating seniors feel this same sense of anxiety but for some reason it has been consuming me recently and I haven't been able to snap out of it. 

rambling, rambling rambling....

Within the past two weeks, I've begun to try to take steps to get back to my normal routine- whatever that may be. I've been exercising much more and have tried to get back to a normal sleep and eating schedule. A visit from my mom definitely helped as well! But also, I need to get back to doing the things that I used to love- like blogging! I abandoned Pink Zin because I never felt like I had the energy or motivation to post but I think getting back into blogging will be good for me since it was truly something I had learned to love!  

So to any of my followers who are reading this post- thank you! And I cannot wait to get back into the groove of things and hopefully this well help me get out of this funk! 

Oddly enough this was my horoscope a few weeks ago and I really think it captured EXACTLY how I've been feeling recently...

"If you watch a soap opera, the concept of time can be meaningless. One moment a main character becomes pregnant, and in the next few weeks she already has a baby. The writers of daytime dramas condense and expand time to meet the needs of the plot. Unfortunately you can't do that, Gemini. You are now in a situation that you wish would end so that you could begin a much happier, more rewarding storyline. Your hoped-for happy ending will occur, but you will first have to work through a small drama of your own. But don't worry, it's coming."



  1. So glad to have you back!! I've been going through an extreme rough patch myself, and its so great to here you're coming back.

    PS As you're the only person I know of living in Boston I thought I'd share, that my boyfriend is moving to Boston for the summer to work at church in the outer suburbs. So, whishfully thinking, perhaps I'll be making jaunt that way in the summer. :)

  2. so glad to have you back! I've been going through a similar rough patch - hopefully with a break in school coming up I can sort of hit the reset button.

  3. I am so happy that you are back! I was going through blogs the other day and realized how much I missed you! I know exactly the feeling that you're talking about. I think you're right, so many graduating seniors feel that way. I hope everything works out for you!

  4. Welcome back to the blogging world!! Sometimes taking a step away is just what you need. I have felt that way since I graduated college so know you are not alone! It'll all work out in the end. :)

  5. AWww welcome back!! I have missed you. :) Life is a funny thing, but you must enjoy it always. It's so important to make "me time" and I hope that you are doing well. Share your workout tips; I always need motivation!! XOX

  6. Whew, Really missed your blog! It always brought some sunshine into my day. Everybody is always in a rush to grow up but sometimes it can be fun to stay a kid and anxiety provoking to become an adult. Remember life is full of opportunities for happiness and adventure

  7. Elena! I've missed reading your blog! I can understand about needing to take a break. I think we all need a break from blogging at times. Working out is a big stress reliever. It's really helped me in the past few weeks. It's definitely normal to be feeling what you're feeling since you're so close to graduating. Take it one day at a time and try not to stress over it. You have a bright future ahead of you! :)
