I'm honestly so excited about this post! A couple of weeks ago I asked you guys (on Twitter) if you'd be interested in me testing out different subscription boxes under $10 and I got a resounding "yes!" I've always been intrigued by subscription boxes. There's something so exciting about not knowing what cool products you're going to be opening up. So, of course, I loved having a reason to buy 5 of them.
Whether you're PMSing or just in need of a little "pick-me-up," here are a few things I'm grateful for that can hopefully make you stop and think about what you're grateful for, as well. This is as much for me as it is for you (cause I'm definitely in need of writing out a gratitude list) but I do truly hope this can inspire you to create your own list (or at least think of some of the things you're grateful for!)
I'm so excited to announce that I'm kick starting my blog again! Well, not technically again because I haven't done a full refresh before now... but you get my point! I've actually been wanting to hit the reset button the past couple of months. I feel like my hearts been tugging me in a different direction than I've been going for awhile.
Being called an "introvert" used to send me into a major existential crisis. I made it my mission in life to prove to everyone around me that I was NOT (I repeat NOT) an introvert. I equated introversion with shyness, brokenness, and being unlikeable. It wasn't until I discovered the true definition of introversion that I realized that there's absolutely nothing wrong with being an introvert.
I'm the type of person that's pretty quiet in a group setting (I mean hello, my blog is mainly about being an introvert). There's honestly only a few things that make me come alive and get me talking when I'm around a group of people that I'm not completely comfortable with yet. Those two things are... People's passions, personality types, or anything else that's not surface level chit-chat and things I love.
The office I’m currently sitting in (and absolutely loving) spent a good six months or so being our “just chuck that junk in there” room. For months it was a literal DISASTER with piles of random stuff all over the ground and definitely not a desk (or cute picture frame) anywhere to be seen. During that time, I was blogging from the couch, bed, kitchen table, ground… pretty much anywhere BUT a desk.
Most people fit into a few different categories when it comes to bullet journaling. Some absolutely love it. Others haven't even heard of it. Some think of bullet journaling as the most time-consuming waste of energy there is. And then there are those who want to love it but end up hating it. I think most people (who already love planner/paper type stuff) fit into the last category.
I recently visited the cutest, quaintest little bookstore and boy, oh boy, did it make me happy! There's nothing quite like a local bookstore to lift your spirits! As usual, I wanted to buy the ENTIRE bookstore but somehow resisted the temptation and walked out with only one book. Also, as usual, I took about a million pictures of the front covers of books I want to buy later.
I used to be so completely obsessed with journaling that I was actually "known" for it, to some extent. It didn't matter if I was at church or at a pool party... I always had my journal with me. It was the place I kept everything... my thoughts, plans, dreams, to-do lists, ticket stubs, and most importantly, my angsty teenage rants about boys and friend drama.
