Last night I started a blog post for today and then got distracted with a million other things. Like completely re-designing my blog. And in all my tinkering, I mixed things up and my basically empty post went live.
Good thing it was just a few pictures, right?
Yeah, so it was amateur night on the blog. These things happen.
In other news, I feel like the universe is having a good time with me right now. Like at the start of most years, I set goals and started brainstorming. In fact I did a lot of planning for this year with all kinds of hopes and dreams. I decided this would be the year I went back to blogging and built up my YouTube channel. I was going to save all the money and do all the crafts and all kinds of things.
Notably absent from my goals for the year was anything having to do with weight loss, dieting – what have you. It’s not that I don’t want to lose weight but that interest has fallen under some other priorities that feel a lot heavier (gah) than the extra pounds I’m carrying. So I didn’t set any “I’m going lose __ pounds in 2015″ plans. But we all know what they say about the best laid plans, right?
Right after I jumped into working on my goals for the year I got picked for not one but TWO major projects at work. I usually keep my professional life (appropriately) separate from this blog so one project I won’t discuss, but gosh wouldn’t you know that the other project is ALL ABOUT healthy living, fitness, weight loss and encouraging other people to do those things?
Message received, universe.
Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean I’m just going to hurl myself back into weight loss blogging. I’m not even going to change my plans and say that losing weight is now my goal. But I’ll have to figure out what my plans are, exactly, because it’ll be pretty hard for me to encourage other people to do things I’m not doing myself.
So this is me, going back to revise all those goals for the year. It’s time to make space for some things I didn’t expect to be doing in 2015. Which is pretty much how life always works, isn’t it?
Maybe it’s time to get used to that.

I don’t know about you but I love seeing inside other people’s homes. Not even gonna lie, if your curtains are open and the lights are on when I walk past I’m checking things out – not to see you or if there’s anything I want, just to see your furniture. Or your cabinets. Last […]

The first time I made sushi it was before Pinterest (I KNOW RIGHT) and, unfortunately, New Year’s Eve so no one should be shocked to hear it was a rather lackluster affair. We tried, but there were just too many things happening at once for it to be a great success. My second time making sushi […]

I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve looked through my pictures and felt like I needed to DO something with them. But there’s always an excuse – time, space, money, whatever. The idea of making one album that showed the entire year’s “best” pictures was definitely appealing. But every time I tried to sit […]

I’ll be honest, I was surprised to be picked for another VoxBox since I’ve been mostly absent from my channels lately but I guess they figured everyone deserves a little treat sometimes. With a name like the “Frosty” VoxBox you’d expect the box to have a winter-y theme but I felt the products were actually […]

There are a lot of “beauty guru” YouTube trends I don’t understand. For example, haul videos. Are you not just showing off how much money you’ve spent? Because in most cases (I’m sure there are exceptions) these videos involve the person going through their shopping bags to show all the products they’ve just bought and […]

I know, you’re probably wondering why I would bother coming out of a blog break if all I’m going to do is talk about something as boring as a day planner. Believe it or not, someone requested this post! Maybe it’s because I’ve mentioned my planner obsession a few too many times and made people […]
