You’re thinking…… vacation? Struggle? Those words don’t make sense together.

You’re right. My issue with my “little vacation” is that I have no motivation. 🙂

My time between jobs so far has been spent with family and now with my guy. Including lots of lying around, some crafts, some baking, having campfires, and playing around on social media. I created two new social media accounts; you can now follow me on Instagram and Vine. Why I thought I needed more ways to fool around on the internet, I have no idea. But hopefully at my next job it will be a way to share some more neat things with you guys!

I’ve kinda been having an identity crisis since leaving Yellowstone. Maybe I shouldn’t call it an identity crisis but I’ve been unsure with what I’m doing. Why do I have an online presence? Am I really doing what I hope for? When I don’t have a job I really don’t have much of a direction. However, I am blessed with friends, online and off, who are willing to gently push me back up.
I recently was interviewed for my hometown newspaper – Dream Chaser – Sturgis Journal
Let’s just pretend that you will forget my first and last name is listed on there….. for safety purposes. 😉

What also saved me this week was a message from The Life of Your Time, and I hope to share some of it with you.
“Please keep up the great work as an NPS ranger, steward of our public lands, and spokesperson for nature. If there’s anything the NPS needs now more than ever, it’s outgoing rangers who engage the public and preach the gospel of the wild. In spite of political battles in DC, state capitals, and other places of power and wealth, it’s the local park rangers that make our parks real and invaluable to most people.

There’s more…. but I’m keeping the rest just for me. Whenever I need a pick me up.

If you have any ideas, or recommendations of something you would like me to research or write about, just let me know!

I could use a little direction right now. 🙂

Thank you all for supporting me, following online, sending me words of encouragement, and just generally being really awesome people.
