I’m a bad blogger. Bad, bad blogger. Bad.
My life’s obviously not as interesting as I wish it would be. It seems to be all work, home, sleep, with the rare “let’s go out and have fun”. I guess I can chalk it up to seasonal affective disorder (ironic that the acronym is SAD) but I just haven’t been feeling much like writing my life down, even for posterity’s sake. It’s just boring, you know? And I feel boring, despite my honest attempts not to be.
My birthday week was pretty intense; was booked solid every day for seven days in a row. One thing about turning twenty-nine, though, is that you’re not nineteen anymore, so after those seven days I felt like I was ready for the home. “NURSE, I WANT MY COCOA.” A girl can only drink so much/rock so hard/eat herself silly for so long, you know? Had a blast, spent time with friends I love and family who are the most supportive, and I felt good about my life and what I was doing with it.
I feel, sometimes, like I’m waiting around. I want to be in school but I can’t go back until September, so everything from now until then is just…waiting. Planning trips to Texas and Sasquatch, my dad’s big retirement in May, the thoughts of Christmas in New York dancing in my head…It’s all so exciting, but I just can’t seem to get excited about the rest of it. My day-to-day is lacking something (or maybe someone?) that I thought I’d have by now. Through all of this, though, I’m not unhappy. I’m just living, and that’s okay for me.
I looked at my post about The Year of No Fear, and I have been trying to stick to that. Singing in a band is one of the things on the list that scares me the most, and that’ll probably be the hardest goal to accomplish. If anybody wants to get in on this, that’s cool with me. I’m letting my 2.5 years of a music degree go to waste over here! And the being a good friend thing? Definitely putting effort into that. Hair cut, check (Go see @hairbykatierose and tell her I sent you)!
Vlogging is something I want to dive into more, and I think I may have found an angle. The video I did about @pinkwhiskers‘ favourite things? I like that idea. If you know me at all you’ll know I have an opinion about everything, so that might be good video fodder. Anyway, check out my YouTube channel if you want to see more of that.
So, yeah. that’s my update. I’ll try and be better at this blogging thing in the future. Thanks for sticking with me! <3
