Recommitment to my Writing

I realize my blog is full of broken promises, but this time I REALLY MEAN IT!

I miss writing.  I miss feeling like life around me is amazing and inspiring.  I’ve been feeling incredibly high lately on life and particularly on exercise.  I have finally beaten the tears in my ankle and am back into sport at about 90%.  The recovery took a lot longer than I expected, and I found it hard to stay positive when all I wanted to do was get back out on the pitch.

Not too long ago, a friend of mine asked me to participate in her “inspiration project.”  Since then I have yet to really play around with a camera.  I miss taking photos.  Especially since my own camera was stolen several weeks ago.  Matt’s is so precious, I just want to have it to myself for a sunny day so I can just run around taking gorgeous photos of this amazing country.

Masterchef Australia 2012 has recently begun.  It may be the most popular television program over here.  My friend, Thuy, just had a Masterchef themed birthday party a few weekends ago and my cheesecake won first prize in the dessert category!  I was beyond proud and very humbled by the experience.  I have only gotten into cooking since moving abroad after graduation, though I have always wanted to be great at it.  And how often do you get rewarded for something like that?

Matt and I are still as in love as ever :)  I am constantly amazed at his ability to love and support me no matter how silly I am being.  This past weekend we went rock-climbing with some friends and as strange as it may sound, watching him be so athletic and determined made me proud that he was mine.  For once he has fallen asleep before me, which is probably the main reason why I am eager to write.  Need to entertain myself into sleepiness.  I went to boxing tonight and it has a similar effect to caffeine.  When it’s over I just want more!

At the moment I am feeling incredibly content with life.  I like my job, I am back playing soccer and doing sport pretty much every night, and I get to go to sleep every night next to the best guy I know (tied with Dad of course).  I have really got it made.  I feel I have Australia to thank for that!
