2015

So, where were we? Who were we? I don't even remember, it's been so long.

One of the things I tell myself is not to explain blogging absences. Hey, stuff happens. I have an offline life - and job! I had a blogging identity crisis, to be honest. One, I wanted to cut photos of L., and then I was like "what do I have?" I used to write about junk I wanted to buy, but lately I am trying not to buy, and also I am self-conscious of coming across as some kind of shill. I'm so bored of blogs being all "BUY THIS LIFESTYLE #sponsoredpost" you know what I mean? And I'm even more bored of blogs that are like "Please sponsor me!!". I don't want to go there.

So what have I got to offer? Nothing, to be honest. Just random thoughts on the internet and pictures of my cat.



But let's just rundown the last few months, in case you were wondering.

1. I accomplished ZERO of my 2014 goals. Not one. Ouch. Best to get it out there, though. Fail. More on that later.

2. We traveled a bit. Another trip to London, a visit to DC, to Toronto and to Pennsylvania. If you're still counting, L.'s flight count is now at 18. 18 for 18 months.

3. I have been sick since about mid-November. Not even a joke. I had a stomach bug on Thanksgiving weekend, the flu, another stomach bug, and now I have a killer cold & cough. I really need to get my immune system in order. That's a semi-goal for this year, I guess.

That's all. See, you didn't miss much.

And now it's 2015. Should I even set public goals, if I couldn't even make ONE of the 2014 goals? Sure, why not. Why the hell not.

First, let's try again at a couple of the ol' 2014 goals:

1. Get a driver's license.

2. Write 100 bloggy whispers.

3. Get back into making work lunches - 4 days a week. Baby needs a new pair of shoes and buying lunch every day is expensive.

Well, let's just keep it simple right there. There are other things I'd like to accomplish, but baby steps.

Ok, that's it. Either I'll get back on the blog train or this thing will die. Wish me luck.

Solidarity.

  1. Yay! This is the first new blog post I've read of yours since I started following your blog. I've been following you on IG and twitter for a long time, but for some reason never added you to my list of daily blog reads. I'm the worst with blogging absences. I thought I would have all the time in the world once I was off work, but now I'm poor and have no money to buy anything or do projects lol My blog (just like my IG feed) would be full of baby/cat photos (not that there's anything wrong with that because babies and cats are the best) if I had to post anything these days. Best of luck to you and your 2015 goals!

    1. Hooray! Well, I'm glad some,one, besides my mom, will be happy I'm back! I think I also fell into a similar predicament (baby and no money) so had nothing much to share. I'm glad you're here to read my random cat thoughts!

    1. I can, and I should, but I tend to eat them all in one morning when I keep food in my office...

  3. You know, pictures of your cat will probably rule the internet.

    1. He should! I think he has the looks, but lacks the charm.

  4. My most favourite blogs are ones like yours. Most sponsored blogs just get passed over because those are boring and I'm pretty sure I know how to shop at Target without somebody telling me this...

    So yea....

    1. Haha, totally. I love it when 3 blogs clearly received the same PR email/sponsorship and are featuring the same junk.

  5. I'm sort of in the same boat as you - I've taken a blog break because I just got tired of putting myself out there with no real feedback. I also haven't read any blogs in over a month - like you, I've become a bit tired of the whole "here's a post about X, and there will be 6 other almost identical posts in your feed today about this product that you should totally buy because I'm being told to tell you about it". Bleh. I don't mind sponsored posts, but only if they're really authentic - if its simply regurgitated copy the blogger got from the PR firm I've got no patience for it anymore, and I have other things I'd rather do with my time

    1. Yeah, I don't mind things being sponsored per se, but am tired of the same stuff on every blog - it's not always a natural fit. And more and more it seems like unsponsored blogs are begging for sponsorships and free stuff, and it's icky.
