I know I pretty much disappeared from Tumblr, so I just wanted to post a short explanation.
In early October, I started a new job as a reporter with the NewsTribune in La Salle, Ill., and I moved there. I am very happy about this; I love my job, and my new life in general. (Being only 50 minutes away from my parents is a really sweet deal, too.)
Now that I am living on my own, I have a lot more expenses, as well as loans for school and my car to pay off. At this time, I am holding off on purchasing wireless Internet and TV channels, because I absolutely hate debt and want to attack it as ferociously as possible.
I’m already paying for unlimited data through my phone, but it’s a lot slower in my new location. It’s good enough for email, Facebook and Twitter, etc. but I can’t keep up with Tumblr right now.
I just wanted to let anyone who followed me know that I’m still alive and enjoying life very much. I may return to “Tumblr-ing” more often in the future, but for right now, posting is largely on hiatus.
I’m still tweeting (at)rachelcstella, so feel free to contact me there, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
