I feel like I am really slacking in the blogging area, lately. I would normally try to do 2-3 posts a week, and now it seems I barely do one a week. I'm not sure what it is. I finished school, so that stress and time-sucker is gone. I have no other real obligations in my free time. I think I'm just exhausted for some reason. I never get enough sleep. I'm horrible at going to sleep at a decent hour and making sure I get enough each night. Some nights I only get 5 hours. You'd think that with all that time I'm not sleeping I could work on blogging, but I don't know. Something about staring at the computer for long periods of time just drains me and I need to just read a book or watch Netflix or go for a walk.
Chris and I just finished binge watching 30 Rock, which took up a lot of time. I think maybe I just needed a very long break from worrying about getting things done on a certain schedule or by a deadline. It's very stressful to have to do that and after school, I think I sort of just let go of that mindset for a bit because I could, and that carried over to blogging. I love blogging and I have no intentions of stopping, but I think it is nice to not worry so much about it sometimes. Just let it happen naturally because in the end, it should never be something that causes stress. This is for me and it's something I enjoy, so I think it's important to do it at whatever pace is comfortable for you at the moment.
I do want to be on top of my blogging game again. I want to not post about holidays weeks after. I want to post more often again. I know that the summer is usually also a time where I feel less inspired, fashion-wise. It gets hot and humid and I just end up wearing the same things all the time. I am most inspired in the fall and spring with the colors and layers and patterns and textures. I am counting down to October (but only October because I HATE WINTER).
I had a really fun, but incredibly exhausting 4th of July weekend. I had Friday off since the holiday was a Saturday, and it was nice to have the long weekend. We had a bunch of people over on Thursday night for an impromptu party, our friend had a party the next night, I went to a cookout with Chris at his dad's on the 4th, and Sunday a few of us went to a big waterfall and state park. It was fun to get to see so many people in one weekend. Can't we just have long weekends all the time? :)
