what have you been up to lately?
i have been doing life, you know those too boring/unacceptable to blog about moments and feelings in everyday life. you know, going to a job you don't really love (although i LOVE the trees outside, which are photographed above!), feeling like a failure for not keeping up with those courses i stupidly thought i'd be able to take while working full time (at said not loved job), thinking about how in 10 years i'll most likely be too late for me to have babies, cleaning up cat vomit.. you know those sort of things. it's not really something you want to take a photo of and put on intagram, or at least i don't.
i have been thinking a lot about this blog, and today Chantilly wrote something that i could relate to SO much (well except being a small business owner, mother, rather popular blogger, and coming to a conclusion). spoiler alert if you're gonna read it; it's basically about how she thought about quit blogging but eventually came to the conclusion she'd stick with it, with some to her major changes. it's much more interesting and well written than that sentence to go ahead and read it, i'll be waiting, promise!
back? good! i'm not done with this blog yet, but i've yet to figure out what i want it to be. i'm sick of pretty much 99% of all blogs i follow, i'm sick of the lifestyle blogs, the fashion blogs, the craft blogs and the blogs in between. i don't want to have a blog that i don't want to read, but i don't know what i want anymore, just what i don't want, which seems like nothing. at the moment i'm interested in these things: cuddling my cats, working out, cleaning out clutter from our apartment. AND i have just recently started to knit a bit again (which is a part of that deleting clutter project since i'm trying to use up my yarn stash), but that's about it to be honest. so where does that leave me, if i would write about my current interests? it'd be all like "Hello blog friend! today i'm gonna talk about lint. oh and here's a picture of my cats distracting me while i do my pilates." perhaps do a vlog about my top 5 tips on how to keep your cats from chewing on your yoga mat? haha!
i'm gonna give this some thought, and just writing this grumpy piece gives me some ideas actually... and what i really want to do is open my rss reader and catch up with YOUR blogs! i've been ignoring all social media and blogs for a bit too long now, i think i just need to take the bull by it's horns and spring clean the shit out of it and keep basic and manageable.
i hope you're having a wonderful start of the new month! (i've spent mine with a stomach flu but let's talk about that some other time)
