Confessions on a Thursday

Because I do what I want.

Oooo, it's only been a month since I last posted this time! Progress!

Confessions are always good, right? Right.

* I am addicted to true crime shows. ADDICTED, I tell you. I feel like it's a problem, but I can't stop. I just started watching "Making a Murderer" a couple of weeks ago (yes, I am that behind the times). I'm about halfway through, I think, and my mind is officially blown.

* I found this pin on Pinterest and immediately starting plotting how to reorganize my pantry. I mean look at it. IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL.


* Pet Peeve: When people can do nothing but complain about how awful the place they live is. I mean, you know you can move, right?? If you hate it that much why do you live there?? Mysteries of the universe.

* I bought a bunch of new plants in March and I've already killed one and another one is looking questionable. But the rest are alive! So that's something, right?? I have the WORST black thumb. Ever.

* I started Insanity a few weeks ago and it's simultaneously the hardest and most awesome workout I have ever done. I thought T25 was intense. I was wrong. So very wrong.

That's all she wrote today. Peace y'all.

Um, so...hi.

Well. It's been a hot minute, huh? I know I just kind of fell of the face of the earth there for a bit, save for the occasional dog picture on Instagram.

Even now I'm not really sure what to say. I don't have some really dramatic or even understandable reason for it, other than just burn out? I guess? I didn't even really mean to stop blogging. I never made a conscious decision to stop, really. I just kept putting it off until it got to where it was almost weird to think of coming to this space and writing.

And then it had been like two months and it just felt awkward.

I haven't been coming to your blogs and commenting either, and for that I am sorry. I do miss you all!

I think I sometimes just hit a wall when it comes to being "connected". I mean to a degree I love it and it's so much fun to share what's going on in my (admittedly pretty boring) life and read all about what's going on in other's (much more exciting) lives, but then I come to a point where I just want to crawl in my little introverted hole and hide for a while.

This is the most accurate depiction of an introvert. Ever. 

Sometimes a while is like a week and other times it's like 4 months apparently.

I guess that's about all for now. I honestly don't know that I can promise that I'll be here consistently again. I don't want to put any pressure on myself to show up. I still love blogging, but it's not a requirement for me, so I'm trying to give myself some grace and space to figure out how involved in this I want to be. We'll see how it goes! In the meantime, what's going on with all y'all?? (Assuming anyone is still reading this...)

P.S. Along the same lines, I read this post from The Daily Tay about this article, and this side of blogging is something I don't think I could ever do. I mean, part of me goes wow that is awesome that she is so successful and has such influence but the other part of me reads the description of what this girl does to maintain it all and I just get really, really tired.
