Long Time No Write

Hey y’all!

I would like to formally apologize for having not responded to emails, comments, and the lack of writing. The past month has been used for some soul searching and sleep.

I found myself slipping into the same old routine of work, eat, gym, sleep, repeat, and I must say that I found it rather depressing. My life was not made for a never ending cycle of work, eat, sleep. I need adventure, excitement, change. I welcome those things.

During my time away, I went on a bachelorette weekend to Savannah, GA and this last Sunday, my friend Beth and I spent the afternoon at a block party in Atlanta. The 12 in 12 trips are still going strong even if they aren’t as adventurous as I would like them to be. I’ve found a way to try new things and go to new places each month despite all that is going on in my life.

I’m planning some exciting things for the end of the year that I’ve hinted at but haven’t come out with it. It’s still a secret, so family and friends that know, please it quiet for now.

Writing has unfortunately fallen by the way side for the time being, and it breaks my heart. I enjoy writing out my emotions and talking to people, but with the way work is right now, I don’t have the time to write. I come home at the end of a long day and crash. It’s a wonder that I even make it to the gym as often as I do. My brain is shot; my emotions are drained, and I just don’t have the energy I need to put in the proper effort to running my blog.

That will change soon.

At the moment, I really am not traveling a lot (or at all), so I don’t have any new content to add to the blog. I could pull things out of my butt, but I’m doing that for my column. I don’t want to half ass two writing jobs.

Nothing has really changed in the dating world. I’ve been out with a few guys over the last few months but nothing has come of them. I took a kind of leap of random faith and signed up for an online dating site. Hahahahaha!!! It’s been interesting. I don’t think it’s something I’m crazy about, but why the heck not right? I have a small hometown and it’s difficult to meet people. Why not branch out? So I am.

Aside from those things, I’m still just me hanging around Georgia waiting for the next big thing. Please bare with me as I slowly get back up and running. I’ll try to publish more articles on a regular basis, and I’ll start linking over my column too so that will add to the content.

If you would like to submit any guest writing, please let me know! I’m more than happy to line your posts up for the blog as well.

OH! My sister, Payton, leaves for Germany in two weeks and two days!! I’m super pumped for her, and when she gets over there, I hope she will write for my blog too.

Anyways, until next time.

Peace, love, and travel

  1. Interesting lifestyle. Much different from MOM. Be careful in Asian Countries with all the unrest.

  2. Greetings, Morgan! This is my first time on your blog and I see that you were born on August 29…..maybe that is why we both have the travel bug as my birthday is August 25. However, there is a big span between us as I am 91.
    Your articles in the Times Georgian always catch my eye. In reading your last column about Egypt and the traffic was very interesting to me. My boyfriend who is 89 and I traveled to Egypt in 2012 on our way around the world. We did not see another American tourist–only German and French. You were brave to go to Cairo. Actually we stayed on the other side of the Nile except to get to the airport. We did see unbelievable traffic….no traffic lights or lines down the road. You can see some pictures I took out of the car window on my website: http://www.aroundtheworldin48days.com Click on Egypt, one of the six countries we visited. I do have another website: http://www.gallopingginny.com that has links to Bob’s and my travels to other countries. Africa is definitely Number One! Please try to visit there while there are still wild animals. You are very young and have so much of the world ahead of you. I am very old but still love to travel (we were in Vietnam and Cambodia for my birthday last August). Happy Traveling!!

  3. This comment brought a GIANT smile to my face!! I loved reading every word of it πŸ™‚ There was a lady on our trip to Egypt who was 92. That’s so cool that people y’all are still taking the world by the reigns and charging forward. I hope to be like that one day.

    Your pictures are INCREDIBLE!! I loved looking through them and recognizing all of the places you saw.

    Please don’t stop traveling and do keep reading my column! πŸ™‚ Hope to see you around the world some day. πŸ˜‰
