I'm Still Here

Aaaand here we are again. It's kind of funny how one of my goals this year was to not take any unexpected long breaks from blogging, so I guess I kind of failed on that part. But! I have been able to focus on my other goals! I was able to get a full-time job that I enjoy, I've been reading a lot more (I finally finished A Dance with Dragons, and I'm already halfway done with The Fault in Our Stars), I've been making myself go out more to see friends, and I'm working toward healthier eating habits (today I even resisted brownies brought into the office, I swear).

So yeah, it's been a productive 3 months since I last posted. For some reason, it's always around the time when winter is coming to an end when I start to get lazy or uninspired with blogging. I can't believe I missed my blogiversary, AGAIN. I'm the worst. So happy belated to my blog, I'll try harder next year. Still, it's been 3 years since I started this whole blogging journey! Crazy.

I also noticed that the lack of posting immediately started when I began my full-time job. After working 8 hours a day, the last thing I wanna do is come home and take photos of myself. I like to nap. Or read my book. Or watch Netflix. Then I go to bed at 10pm since I have to wake up early for work (this is now my life on weekdays, haha). I won't blame it all on my job though. My self discipline to blog on a schedule is so wishy-washy. Sometimes I will see a blog post so awesome and motivating that it makes me want to improve my own blog content, but then later that same day I can see something as simple as an Instagram photo of a dull outfit that leaves me feeling uninspired with a "what's the point?" attitude. Not the ideal trait a blogger should have, I know. Yet for some reason I still can't completely quit.

I have missed blogging though. I'm trying to find some happy medium to where I can still find time to blog, but at the same time I don't wanna constantly worry about when I will be able to take outfit photos. This isn't me saying that I'm finally gonna start posting more consistently (at least not for now), but more of me saying, "Hey, I'm still here, and I'll continue to post from time to time... when I feel like it." Blog posts may be more sparse, but I've always heard "less is more" anyway, so I'm just gonna stick with that logic! ;)
