This post was supposed to be up hours ago but I was in a bit of a funky mood and everything I wrote sounded off. You know when you have those days where you feel annoyed and don’t know why? Well when I get like that it affects my writing which in turn makes me even more annoyed because all I wanna do is write and I just can’t.
So I stepped away from my computer for a couple of hours, went and had brunch with my best friend and came back good as new. Avocado, coffee and playing on a see-saw will have that effect on you. If you ever get writer’s block, that’s the cure FYI.
So this post is for all you nosy people (like me.) I’m gonna take you behind the scenes where all of the magic happens. Today I wanna give you a sneaky peek of my room. I personally love reading these kinds of posts because I for one, love snooping on people’s business (no shame.) It’s the most fun seeing where people live/work, I think it says a lot about them. You can tell a lot about a someone’s personality by the pictures on their walls or the number of inspirational quotes on their mirror (eight but who’s counting?)
And one of my favourite things is going for a walk and rubber-necking to try and see over people’s hedges. Okay that sounds bad but I just have a thing for pretty old houses and neat little gardens (the hedges are a little annoying though 😛 )
So as I was saying I love seeing behind the scenes and if you do too…then stick around. Because today mi casa es su casa…
If I’m being honest this week hardly deserves to be reviewed. It was the first week of my break (yay) but I’ve been working on an essay all week which has been totally kicking my butt (boo.) I’ve literally been sat behind my laptop for the entire week. And when I wasn’t behind the laptop I was in the kitchen rummaging through the fridge for snacks to make the whole process slightly more bearable. But I’ve missed the week in reviews so I’m writing today because I can make a story out of anything.
This year is my blog’s 4th birthday (woo!) and that little milestone is happening next month which just so happens to coincide with another freaking huge milestone…my 21st birthday. So I figured instead of swamping October with celebratory posts I would spread them out (double the cake, double the fun.) And since this is my blog’s birthday party I thought it would be a great time to share the reason why it even exists. So today I’m sharing my reason for blogging. I’ve never really sat down and told this story before although it’s something I get asked a lot. It’s a funny thing how blog’s start out because most of us never expect to get as invested in them as we do. But here I am four years later and I honestly can’t imagine not being a blogger. So cue the confetti…let’s start the celebration…
Do you know what’s freaking unbelievable? I’ve only got 7 weeks left at university. Eep how did that happen? I’m trying to soak it in and enjoy this time as much as possible but they’ve got us so gosh darn busy that, that is hard to do. It’s also shadowed by the ever-pressing reality that I’m gonna be out in the big, wide world soon and I have absolutely no clue what I’m gonna do with my life. I’m trying not to think about that but unfortunately by the time you are in your final semester you get asked every single day what you are planning on doing next year.
How you doin’? I’m pretty darn happy that it’s Friday if I’m honest. This week has been a little bit of a roller coaster let me tell ya. The other night I got home and had a little blub-fest because I felt completely overwhelmed. You know how it’s just one thing after another and you can’t handle it all and before you know it you are crying with your face in a tub of ice cream? That’s about where I was at on Wednesday night.
And you know in times like these what you really need is a comforting, feel good movie, am I right?
I’m currently jamming to Taylor Swift re-living my teen years (sans acne and awkwardness) and it is such a good time. Listening to this music always brings back memories for me and with that comes all the feels. To think how much I’ve experienced since I first heard these songs. To remember how far I’ve come, how much I’ve grown…and all the lessons I’ve learnt over the years. It makes me get a little teary. God’s been so good you guys. So today I wanna jump into a little bit of #realtalk about one of the greatest life lessons I’ve learnt so far.
This has been quite a week. To be honest I’m still not recovered from the Bachelorette finale which was just so depressing. I was Team Peter all the way and it has upset me way more than it should that she picked Bryan. This is my problem: I get way too invested in TV shows. It feels like my heart gets broken, like I’m the one who’s getting rejected every time. And then I feel all mopey and depressed and in need of ice cream to soothe the heartbreak that someone’s feeling. It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve seen Ross and Rachel break up…it still kills me (because he’s her lobster obviously!)
Do you feel like you just blinked and suddenly it’s August or is it just me? How did this happen? I don’t know, but I’m pretty excited about it. Because springtime is just around the corner down here. We went to the park the other day and there were two lambs frolicking around and I have definitely seen a few buds popping up on the trees. My absolute favourite flowers are daffodils which makes springtime especially joyful for me because they crop up everywhere like beacons of hope that the winter chill is coming to an end. Ah isn’t it so good to be alive?
Well this week has flown on by, I almost feel dizzy. It was our first week back and with classes in full swing I couldn’t stay in denial very long. Somehow I managed to schedule something almost every day this week which was fun and all but also super exhausting. Can I be a total diva for a sec and say that after one week back that I already need a holiday? This weekend is also gonna be a busy one because I’m working and then helping out at the craft fair at church. Apparently, it’s true what they say…ain’t no rest for the wicked (or weary for that matter.)
