Today’s post is a little bit different but I was inspired by a few NZ bloggers who have answered this Taking Stock list. My blog turned 6 months yesterday too and I have thought of doing this when I hit this mark. This is outside my usual posting schedule but I hope you enjoy this more personal post.
Making: A proper blog schedule. I have been in a rut for a few weeks now and although it hasn’t affected my usual blog schedule, I haven’t really planned any posts beyond next week. I really want to start planning ahead and having at least a month in advance plan of my blog posts.
Reading: I used to read a lot but I haven’t read a proper book in a long time. It really sucks because I used to enjoy reading but I can’t seem to make time for it at the moment. I did buy this book recently though:
I’ve been enjoying reading the short stories and quotes from the book and getting some motivation.
Eating: I’m not eating at the moment but I did have a filling dinner at my partner’s parent’s house last night and I had a sneaky Whittaker’s Dark Ghana chocolate after. I love dark chocolate!
Enjoying: The sun being out! We had a lovely weekend and I had gelato and walked along the beach twice. It was awesome.
The next day I had Kapiti ice cream and ate it along the beach with my partner. That’s how great my weekend was!
Waiting: To hear back from someone.
Wondering: About the future.
Hoping: To get the results I want from that someone.
Wishing: For a fresh start.
I also wish I can stay in bed and sleep in during the week.
Trying: I’m trying to figure out what I really want to do. It is taking me a long time to figure things out but I’ll get there somehow.
Considering: Joining a gym. I haven’t worked out in months and I could tell that I have gained weight from all the indulging I’ve done this winter. I really need to get back into the fitness wagon. I have fallen way off.
Wearing: I’m on the way to work now and I’m wearing my brogues, tights, skater skirt, knit sweater and asos coat.
Needing: A holiday. I want to go away and forget about work or chores even just for a few days.
I am never not dreaming of going back to Queenstown.
Watching: I’m not following any TV series right now but I did watch Masterchef NZ and the finale was last night. I wasn’t happy with the finale but I can’t do anything about that. Last week, I also binge-watched Real Housewives of Melbourne. It’s such a guilty pleasure for me.
Thinking: I’ve been thinking of re-doing my room which is our spare room and a combination of a beauty room, office and closet. I’ve been searching for a new desk and good shelving.
This is the nice part of my room.
Disliking: That I feel like there is not enough hours during the day to get all the things I need to get done. From full time work, chores, blogging and socialising… I just don’t have enough time to do everything!
Buying: Probably more stuff from iHerb. I’m also tempted to check out this makeup sale in the weekend.
Loving: Knowing that I have a good support system around me. Also loving the prospect of getting a cat soon! Yay!
I never get this personal on my blog but I hope you get a glimpse of what I’m feeling at the moment. It hasn’t been a particularly great month and I’ve had some struggles but I think I’m finally feeling better so I’m hoping this will continue.
Tomorrow I have a beauty post so come back if you’re more interested in seeing my usual posts. I hope you have a great day.
