Happy Friday!

It’s finally starting to feel like Fall and I for one couldn’t be happier.

Happy Friday everyone! Hope everyone has a lovely, chilly weekend and a spook-tacular Friday the 13th 👻.

4 Years?? Really?

Time is a funny thing. Sometimes you look back at something and think ‘I can’t believe that was 4 years ago! It feels like it was yesterday!’ While other times, you’ll look back at something else and think ‘That happened 4 years ago? It feels like much longer!’

And sometimes, you’ll feel a confusing combination of both types of feelings. This is one of those times.

On Starting Again

A very wise friend told me that when trying to get back into the blogging mindset after an extended absence, the best thing to do was start with a picture.
I'm sure she meant that start with a picture and follow it with an actual blog post, but I think I'll leave it at a picture for now.
Hope everyone is having a great summer!

How is it Almost March Already??

I know, I know, it’s not very innovative or new to declare that ‘time really flies’ or ‘where did the time go’ but seriously guys, how is it almost March already? Wasn’t it just the holiday season with lights up on the houses and the New Year just around the corner? Wasn’t it just New Year Resolution season?? I know I’m generally quite absent minded but how did I just realize that it’s (almost) March and that the new year isn’t all that new anymore? 

Note to self: buy a bigger wall calendar with one of those bright red movable squares to highlight the date. Hopefully I won’t disappear for another few months only to resurface with a post about how it’s the middle of summer and I don’t know where the time went.

Or maybe just get a couple and put them up all over the house

Hopefully.

On Shaking Off the Summer Haze

This summer, as I may have mentioned once or twice before, has been more than a tad hectic to say the least. Always being on the go and always doing stuff may seem awesome and fun for a while but after a month or so of constant activity? Well let’s just say the charm wears off soon and you actually start relishing the odd day or so of having nothing to do!

So yes, I definitely need a vacation after this summer, though I suppose a vacation would mean more activity and moving around so maybe what I really need is a few consecutive days of peace and quiet and nothing to do.

A side-effect of constant activity that I didn’t anticipate was the mental haze that comes with it. Basically, when you’re always working or on the move, there really isn’t any time in the day to think. I like to think of myself as a wannabe writer and usually my head is always full of ideas and snatches of creative inspiration but for the first time in a long time all my head seems to be full of is a hazy cloud of exhaustion. Even when I’m actively trying to come up with things to write, all I end up with is the idea of wanting to write and nothing to go with it, and that really bothers me. Writing, or creativity in general, is an essential part of who I am and without it, I just feel slightly lost.

So yes, summer is almost over (hopefully) and I for one cannot wait for the dull routine of life to pick up again. Maybe I’ll have better luck shaking off this haze when my physical life is less demanding!
