A girl could get used to this 4 day work week thang, that's for sure. Especially ones with paid holidays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA!
Since I haven't been around as often as usual lately (and because I'm too lazy to come up with a topic), I figured I'd throw some randomness your way and bring things up to speed around here.
Someone stole Pete's lunch at work and I think I was more pissed off about it than he was. I do not cope well with food thievery. I once called an old boss and gave him a tongue lashing for eating one of my Slim Fast bars, then vehemently prayed to the sugar alcohol gods that he be cursed with explosive diarrhea as punishment.
I bought the mini pack of OPI 2014 neon polishes and was super disappointed in them. The color I was most excited to use - purple - looked more like a deep fuchsia-y/plum-y fall shade than anything else... and that was even after doing 2 coats of white polish prior to the 3 coats of purple to make it "pop"! Talk about the manicure equivalent of blue balls.
I'm not a big crier. I mean, I didn't even get misty eyed when that bitch Rose let Jack go after promising she wouldn't... but, I was catching up on some Honey Boo Boo and they showed a montage of their dog who was hit and killed by a car - straight up crocodile tears, yo. I'd expect that shit from Sarah McLachlin, but, not from you, Mama June!
I paid off a significant chunk of my credit card debt and I can't tell you what a relief it is. I've been trying so hard lately and to actually see results just motivates me to try even harder (hence the $300 Coach purchase that I held myself back from). I think I have a new goal: to be debt free by 30. That gives me 8 months which is entirely possible if I stick to my guns about it.
Blogging has really taken a back seat for me lately. I haven't sponsored anyone since April... when I first started I sponsored several people each month. I've been averaging 2 posts a week... when I first started I was averaging 4-5. I'm okay with it. I'm not burnt out and I don't plan to quit. My priorities and circumstances have just shifted and my need to be here has shifted, too... into a want - as in I "show up" when I damn well please and not because I'm worried I'll lose followers, page views, etc. Gaining page views and followers feels good, I'm not gonna lie... but you know what feels even better? When you've cultivated friendships within this community that stay strong regardless of if you're sponsoring them or not, or how many times a week you post. That right THURR is what it's all about for me.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to go read a book then fall asleep... :) I hope you all enjoy your long holiday weekend! Except for poor Krystal... sucks to be her (living in the Caribbean actually has a downside... who knew?!).
Have you ever been super disappointed in a product that you were initially super psyched about?
What is blogging all about for you? Has your perception changed at all since you started?
