Life Lately

Happy Thursday Y’all!!! I hope everyone has had an amazing week so far! I have never really done a post like this before but I figured why not do one today?

Blogging: Can I just say how very excited I am for having my blog reach 1,000 page views in a day! I know that probably doesn’t seem like anything special but to me it’s the best thing ever! I really have been working hard on improving the blog. Which with this happening, I think it’s slowly but surely paying off. Thank You again to all of those who support me! I can not thank you enough for all the sweet words. I will continue to grow the blog and learn how to become better at blogging.

Personal: I wish I had more time to do things. I have been filling slightly out of it and disorganized lately. Which I will say that my job is making me feel that way (more on that in just a second). I hate that I feel this way because it truly has effected my mood(s) lately. The rest of my life though is great. My boyfriend is absolutely amazing. He surprised me last night with coming home a day early with roses and steaks (because this is what I told him I really wanted to eat when he got home). So that was such a sweet surprise to say the least. Everyone in my family is doing well, which makes me happy. I do however, wish I had more time to spend with them. I am working on that! Last but not least (well for the personal part) I get to see my friends this weekend! I finally get to meet my friends little boy that she had last week.

Professional: I am just going to say my professional life is draining the life out of me. I have been absolutely miserable lately with my job. I truly do not enjoy my job at all. I feel that over the last few months so much has been changed, that is why I am hating my job. Along with a few other things but I will not go into detail about that. I’ve been contemplating looking for another job for that last few months but have been holding off. I’ve been with my company almost 3 years, so starting a new job would just suck. I however ask myself is it really worth continuing being so unhappy over? When I wake up in the morning I dread having to leave my house to go to work. When I get home I am exhausted and want to do nothing. Maybe it’s something I am going through and it will pass (hoping it seriously does). Sometimes I think I really just have done something in fashion or makeup. Has anyone else felt this way?

So despite the one negative thing that is bringing me down I have so much to be thankful for. What has been going on in your life lately?

  5. Congrats on the page views! I just hit 300 the other day and was excited about that haha Also, I hope you’re able to find some happiness in your day to day as far as working goes :-/ I’ve been there. But it took a major change to pull myself out of that funk which isn’t always possible. Good luck to you!

  7. Congrats on your page views! That’s not silly at all. 🙂 I used to feel the same way about my old job — it sucked all the life out of me. I completely changed careers, and it was the best decision I’d ever made. Not saying it’s necessarily the right thing for you or for everyone, but if you’re miserable, you should definitely allow yourself to consider other possibilities. Best of luck to you!

      Thank You Brittany!!! 🙂 My job has really sucked the life out of my lately. I feel like it just makes me slack in everything else because I am exhausted at the end of the day. I have been thinking about my current situation and I am trying to be as positive as I can be. It has been extremely rough though. I may be looking into other possibilities.

    I just found your blog through the giveaway going on & wanted to say that I love your blog! Your design is so cute! I also wanted to say that I completely feel you about the job thing & I’m in the exact same boat as you. As in being miserable & wanting to find something new. But, it’s hard to leave, especially if the benefits & pay are good (which is my current dilemma). I think it’s a good idea to keep looking or keeping an eye out for something that is a better fit, even if you’re not really actively looking/applying/etc. Hopefully things start to look up in the job world!

      Thank You so much Megan! I agree that my pay and benefits are good but just everything going on lately…has been bringing me down. It’s always a good thing to keep your eyes open to see if there are better opportunities. I’m attempting to stay positive but I have been just a negative nancy lately.

      Thank You so much Taylor! I was very excited! I saw it and was like wait is that right? You’re almost done with school!!! Just remember there is some light at the end of the tunnel. Though at times I must admit that grown up life after college isn’t that great either. Hahaha.
