I know I’ve been a little M.I.A. the last 2 months, and I’m sorry for falling off the grid. Life’s been kind of hectic to be honest. It’s like once I spent a week away with C, I started spending all of my time over at his place. And when I’m home? My mom is taking up my time. So between work, my mother, and C, I’ve had my hands full.
I’ve been at such a standstill the last couple of months when it comes to this blog, that I’ve forgotten how to just come up with a blog idea and write it out. Things are starting to look up, after all of this time.
So what exactly happened? Why did I stop blogging so much?
There are many reasons why I’ve grown to love blogging. For one, the blogging community is very supportive. I just posted about how I was sick and so many of you commented and told me to get better and to focus on myself for a bit. Thanks so much for the love! I’m feeling a little better, and more motivated to write.
January is about to end, and February is rapidly approaching. Time, it really flies. This month wasn’t as great as I was anticipating, but it’s only the first month of the new year, and I spent most of it working. I’ll get there (I hope). I feel like January always kind of is a letdown. I’m just ready for spring already.
Do you ever stop and think about what you’re actually taking advantage of, right now, at this moment? I’m not saying this in a negative way, but many of us really don’t contemplate the fact that we have access to many things that gives us an advantage over other people.
I was nominated for this award by the lovely Priya! If you haven’t checked out her blog by now, please do! She has a lovely selection of her own writings and poetry, I love reading her work. Check out her blog here! She nominated me about a week ago, but I haven’t had time until now to write up this post.
There are a few things I’m sort of proud of accomplishing recently. One, for sure, is making it through this month. I made it through this month without seeing Ray (until now), so I am definitely proud of that. And don’t take that as me needing a man in my life, but I really did miss him and I’ve been so looking forward to it.
I’m not going to sit here and write about how great or terrible both are. There’s always a fine – very fine – line that people cross over to become addicted. This includes both drugs and alcohol. I have seen people at their worst on both, and it’s scary. But it hasn’t stopped me from my own drinking habits. However, the hardest drug I ever let myself try was weed, and let’s face it – that’s not a bad drug. I’m absolutely terrified at the idea of becoming addicted to a harder drug, that I won’t dare even try one for the sake of the experience.
We’re almost halfway through September already, which is crazy. 2018 is just around the corner. Can time just slow down a little? I feel like I barely got to enjoy the summer weather before it started turning cooler again. I’m not ready for the cold weather, not one bit.
I mentioned about a week ago (here) about trying to make some goals for this week.
My weekly goal from now to next week is going to include: cleaning up a little around the house (and especially my bedroom – it’s a disaster), read half of Game of Thrones, finish Twin Peaks (before my free Showtime on Hulu expires), and especially – call and set up a doctor’s appointment! This is the first step to getting my act together.
