Chase (v): To follow rapidly in order to catch (this could pertain to my career), to go and follow in pursuit (I think I’ll assign this to love)

I wish I had a PhD in life, unfortunately I don’t. It’s a hard thing to do and being an independent woman in Boston doesn’t make it any easier; I’m a triple A, work till I drop, laugh a lot because I can, walk fast, talk fast kinda girl. I do it all and I do it in 5 inch heels.

You would think navigating a career and a new relationship while breaking the age barrier of 30 would be as easy as getting home in a timely manner during a sox-yankees series (this ladies and gents is sarcasm at its finest). However it is not and I am stumbling through this cray cray life one day at a time with a iPhone in one hand and a glass of wine in the other.

These are my daily musings; my everyday observations. I am here to rave, rant , tell my stories and perhaps laugh at those times when wine and over priced shoes, tears just aren’t enough.

So what happens after you caught Prince Charming? You could say I’m still Chasing Boston.

Where In The World Is Courtney Smith

So, where have I been the last 10 months? I wish I could regale you with tales of luxurious travel and exotic romance…..Actually I CAN regale you with tales of luxurious travel and exotic romance which we will get into much later, BUT the real reason I haven’t been around is that yes I found a somebody. A GREAT somebody and didn’t really know how to handle this whole “So I have a dating blog NOW what??” In pure adult form, I decided to just sweep it under the rug until I had that light bulb moment of clarity, which has yet to happen, but what is very clear is that my life is amazingly hysterical so why not continue to write about it?!

The truth is I have been adjusting to this new world I’m in; living on my own, obsessing about the fact that I literally just put my foot in the door to my 30’s and I still don’t have a kitchen table forcing me to eat all of my meals either on the floor on my ottoman (by far the most expensive piece of furniture in my place) or on my bed. I’m trying to get acclimated to working a normal schedule, re-discovering my social life and trying to be the best partner I can, which doesn’t always work out in my favor but it’s a process just like anything else. The best part about this blog gig is that I get to write about all aspects of not only my nights, but my days too, and maybe I’ll add in some throw back dating stories, because there are a TON still locked in the vault (not a ton as in, wow she’s such a mega slut that she dated like a bazillion people…but you know what I mean)

The last year has been an incredible adventure; there has been travel, there has growth, there have been stupid moments and hysterical moments, multiple bottles of wine have been consumed, many evenings with unending laughter and most of all there has been living.  Where I feel like I have caught up with exactly where I should be, there is so much more in this life that I need to grasp. So.....

The chase is still on!
