Life Lately | March 2015
It's been a little while since I've updated you on life and all that business. So, I thought I would take today to fill you in on what has been going on behind-the-scenes.
Most days, you only see the exciting things here and on Instagram. Today I just want to be real and let y'all know what's been going down.
Inspiration. Or lack thereof, I should say. I've been feeling extremely inspired, and extremely uninspired all at the same time. How that is even possible, I have no idea. I've been working on a new posting schedule that I will be implementing at the start of the month (it's a good one, I promise). With that, I've had tons of ideas, but feel uninspired when it comes to carrying them out. It feels different than lack of motivation, and is more of an unsureness of how to carry-out the ideas I have. It's frustrating, but I think the challenge will be so good for me!
Tired. If you read my post on the life changes that have been going on, you know that I have been a busy bee with the move. I'm half way through the four month stretch, and it has been an interesting experience. Some days, I feel like a million bucks, like I can take on the world, and like life is treating me so well. Other days, I feel like nothing can go my way, everyone is out to get me, and getting out of bed is just too much. I've had a lot of days where I can't help but cry every two seconds, but I'm still feeling very positive about the whole situation (just a little exhausted as well)!
Busy. I don't want to go into too much detail on this one. I'll just leave you with this: last semester of college, blogging full-time, small-business owner, part-time blogging on second blog, working full-time, moving (living on couch), etc. WOAH - Two more months and I'll have a little less stress. Woo hoo!!
Excited. A couple week ago my car died. I like to use the word exploded because in my mind, that's exactly what happened. Basically, an o-ring inside the engine broke and there is oil all up inside of there. I have the option of spending around $3000 to fix the engine or buy a new one (around 5x the value of my car), or drive it until it dies. I'm choosing the second option. At first I was a little frustrated, as I'm sure most people would be, and the fact that it will die completely at any time without warning is a bit frightening (what if I'm on the freeway?!), I'm just thinking positively. I'm excited that I'm going to buy a new car sometime in the next two months! YAY!
So there you go. A little of what has been going on. It seems like the negative outweighs the positive, but when I write it out, I can't help but laugh at half of these things and keep a positive outlook on the situation. I have a lot to look forward to: graduation, moving, Maui, collaborations, business opportunities, etc!
Here's to the next few months of hard work, some bad days, lots of good days, tons of coffee, and new friends from all over! Thank you all for your encouraging words on Twitter, your Instagram photos that inspire me, and everything else that you do to support me and my blog!
