Well hi there friends, it’s been a little bit (again, sorry) But happy Thankful Thursday to you all :]
This summer has been one of the craziest summers I have ever had. I took summer classes for the first time, while still working 30-35 hours a week. If any of you know what it’s like to take a summer class, you understand what I mean when I say I have been BUSY. For the rest of you sane individuals, it’s a full length course (usually around 16 weeks) crammed into 8 weeks. I took three classes. Honestly, it wasn’t terrible. It kept me busy, yes, but so long as I time managed well it was okay. The terrible part was trying to go on a mission trip on the second to last week of the semester. Oh my goodness, I don’t think I would have been able to succeed in the classes if I hadn’t been given internet access while I was in Haiti.
At first it seemed pretty manageable, I didn’t have any big projects due that week and I would have all the information for the final week before I left. Then, as the trip came closer, I didn’t manage my time as effectively and quickly small fears fueled my anxiety and I was crippled. As the weeks are beginning to pass since the trip and my semester ended, I am trying to figure out what went wrong and how I can help prevent it in the future. And maybe as I do, I will share it here.
But for now, I took some time to refocus and refresh my blog. What do you think? I have decided to get rid of Merchandise Mondays, unless I find something I really want to share with you guys. Like running shoes or a dog harness or toy, something I actually care about instead of trying to promote something I enjoy using but don’t really care about. Taking its place will be Make Believe Mondays. I have decided I want to focus more on writing of all kinds, whether it be my sort of poems or a made up story. On Mondays I will now share short stories or made up pictures 🙂
As far as Tasty Tuesdays, I most definitely want to continue them and include more cooking not just baking! Wisdom Wednesdays will now branch out to Wacky Wednesdays too, including a funny story or goofy doodle or whatever funky thing pops out to me. Of course, Thankful Thursdays have no reason to change. I love them, and find them super useful and refocusing on the beautiful things in life!
Finally, Fridays. I haven’t decided if I want to keep Functional Fridays, I do enjoy sharing my organizational tips and how I use my bullet journal. But I might expand it to Fancy Fridays or Fun Fridays, to include either an outfit I absolutely love or a glamorous date night idea or to share our adventures. Stay tuned to find out! haha Or, better yet, what are your suggestions? What would you like to see on Fridays? Or even weekends?
Thank you all for your support and encouragement! I look forward to getting back to posting weekly content and maybe even making it a more bi-weekly thing 🙂 Hope you enjoy the new theme and focus behind the blog.
