And the beat goes on…

Dear lord. I just looked at my blog for the first time in way too long, and I realized it’s been nearly a month since my last post! I had to ask myself, “What have you been doing that has kept you soooo busy, missy?”
Well, I’ve been busy finding out that the boy I was dating (yes the one who made me burgers) was actually already in a relationship. So, now I guess I’ve been someone’s mistress, albeit unwittingly, and I can check that one off the life list. (That was meant to be sarcastic in case you couldn’t tell. It’s hard to convey an eye roll on a blog.) And I’ve been busting my ass for a side job that definitely has a busy season, because with an unpaid internship it’s pretty crucial that when I get an opportunity to make money I take advantage of it. What else? Dealing with the fallout caused by the ambiguous nature of a friends/more-than-friends (?) relationship. I’ve learned my lesson there: you’ve got to be careful with liaisons that fall into that category. Oh, and then there was the temporary disappearance and mental breakdown of a family member (I’m still a little fuzzy on the details of this one) that was pretty scary for a minute or two. (If you guys could send some happy thoughts to my fam, I’d really appreciate it). As if all that weren’t enough, I’ve found that my three-month-that-turned-into-seven-month stint at SAVEUR is coming to an end next week, so I’m once again trying to figure out what the hell to do with my life. Any thoughts? I haven’t gotten much farther than “Tyla, take deep breaths.”
Lastly, the death of a classmate from Duke, another young girl claimed by cancer, has come as quite a shock and left many of my friends reeling. Please send some major love and light to the family and friends of Lindsay Rawot, an amazing woman who was taken away too soon.
Bottom line: everything’s normal in my life (or so I’m starting to believe). I reiterate: Universe, I’m tired of the lessons and I would like some hugging now please. K? Thanks.
I had planned for this post to be about some awesome roast chicken, but you know, now that it’s half-written, I think that the life recap is enough for now. Back to the food in the next post, I promise. But until then, I leave you with a cheery song by April Smith (I’ve been relying heavily on cheery music lately…), who I saw last night in concert. She rocks my world and you should all go buy her album Songs for a Sinking Ship.
Final note for those of you out there who worry: I’m okay. I’m getting really good at rolling with the punches.
