Hello April & Where I've Been.
Hello, hello, hello! You may have noticed (or not LOL) that I've been a little inconsistent with blogging and I haven't updated much. All true, and frankly, I have no amazing excuse to feed you. It's really all due to a lack of motivation. I follow a lot of blogs, on here and on Tumblr. Possibly over 150, and let me tell you, other peoples success can sometimes put a damper on your parade. I'm not trying to be mean or sound jealous but it's truly how I feel. I don't have fancy camera equipment or a hired photographer to capture that perfect pose. I don't even want to compete, but at this point I don't even feel on the same level. So that's why I'm a little discouraged. Feeling like my blog isn't good enough, or the content isn't as "cool". For example, i'm not talking about the Frends Headphones that all the other bloggers are talking about. I'm different, I don't jump on bandwagons all that quickly and I like to talk/show things that no one else really talks about. So anyway, that's a little struggle I've been experiencing, but I've realized that this is MY blog. I am free to write what I WANT to. I may have truly lost the meaning of WHY I actually started blogging ... for all of you, but mostly for ME.
I think I have finally come back to earth and picked myself back up, I will try to be more consistent, I promise!!
So where have I been? Well first off, have a look above. You may see a lot of my own face, food and randomness. That pretty much sums it all up. Okay, blog post over .... NOT. I was out of a job for quite sometime now, was really feeling the effects of it. Especially coming from someone who worked continuously for the lasts 7 + years, it really hits home. You are so use to using your brain and following a routine, and then all of a sudden, BOOM. No routine, nothing to look forward to, days go by, you've gain a couple of pounds, and some how your personality leaves your body. Okay, a little over exaggerated but you get the point. No kidding, the break was nice, but, I feel like i've forgotten some of those skills that I learned over the last few years - scary right? But have no fear, Saf got a new job - hells to the yeah! She starts on Monday! I'll talk more about it after I actually start. LOL!
Aside from that, I have been: hanging with the Hubs, had my first ice cream of the Spring time (Yipeeee), hung around Toronto, volunteered for Anokhi Media, celebrated my 3rd wedding anniversary (holy cow right?), spent some time in my home town with my close friends, Sohs birthday(!), tried my first ever Kiwi smoothie (so yummm!), cut my hair, and learned to cook some new dishes! But this is not all, I also spent a lot of time being a cough potato - no joke and eating yummy things!
It's April already! Can you believe it?! 2015 is literally passing us by but I'm not complaining! Spring has sprung. I have traded in my thick winter coat and sweats for my light spring jacket and flats! God, that makes me so happy! Okay, so April is upon is, Spring is upon us, (BTW i'm listening to the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack (and NO I haven't seen it......yet) while I write this), and i'm thinking to myself ... what's next? Well, as I mentioned before, i'm looking forward to the new job which I hope will lead to financial freedom! No but seriously looking forward to working my butt off for a big pay off! I may talk about it as the days go, let's hope April is good to me!
What are you excited about for April? Let me know!
