Hey you guys, happy Monday! I hope that your weekend was wonderful and you all had a blessed Easter!
As you may know I took a little blog break. It was unexpected. I took a few days off accidentally and then a few days off intentionally and it turned into a two-ish week break. Nothing crazy happened, I just felt the need to take a little breather. I guess I was feeling a little bit defiant against my blog. Weird. Do you ever get that?
I took the time to think about why that was and I came up with a theory. I lost sight of myself a little bit. Sometimes I feel like blogging and just being so tapped into the internet culture in general makes the line between what you really enjoy and what you think you should enjoy a bit blurry. It's taxing to try to fit yourself into the mold of something you aren't. This little break helped me to clear my head and refocus.
I said a few posts back that I wanted to take my blog in a different direction, even if it's just slightly different. At this point I don't know what that is, but I have a few ideas. I am going to take it slow and see where it goes.
And now… onto weekly wishes.
This week my goals are…
- Start a new book. I just finished reading the Goldfinch (loved it!) and I am on the hunt for a new one.
- Clean out more! I have been cleaning out like a mad woman but I know that there is still more stuff that I can get rid of, stuff that is just sitting there. My little brother is getting close to moving out of my parent's house so I know he'll need some stuff ;)
- Update my electronics. I have yet to update my iPhone and iPad to that new iOS. I don't even remember which one it was but you know, that big one a while back. Yeah, I haven't done that yet. I've been putting it off but hopefully this week!
What are your goals this week?
