I have a love/hate relationship with my busy life right now. While I fully realize that compared to most people’s it’s probably pretty tame, for someone who likes a consistent routine (and being lazy), it can be a little overwhelming. I think this is the first period in my life where I’ve experienced the kind of busyness that everyone else has on a daily basis, and the thought that my whole life is going to be like this is pretty scary and mind boggling. Right now it feels like I always have something to be stressed about, and sometimes I just want it all to go away.
But on the other hand, it is kind of wonderful too. It feels good to really be living, and to feel like I have a concrete purpose and goals that I am working towards. Plus, so much of my current busyness is really, really, REALLY good busyness. Four trips planned for a period of thirty days (plus school and work)? I’m torn between hiding under a blanket and crying, and jumping up and down for joy. Yes, it’s overwhelming, but I know that this is a season in my life that I’m always going to look back on with fondness, so I’m going to appreciate every (busy) second.
But what does any of that have to do with blogging? Well, I’m not sure yet how much my posting will be affected by my upcoming busy schedule – I could basically disappear for a month, or I could keep up my posting schedule perfectly. We’ll see. I’m definitely going to try, because blogging is such a beautiful part of my life right now, and I’m excited about sharing all the outfits from my traveling (most of which I still have to plan. O.o).
Oh, and one last thing – turns out my last post was my 250th. I’m a quarter of the way to a thousand! Of course it slipped my mind when I was writing that post, so I didn’t get to do any reminiscing on the past 250 posts, but I have a blogiversary coming up, which I’ll hopefully remember.
Oops. I guess I didn’t say anything about this outfit. As usual when I wear this dress, I felt like a 1950s housewife, and I kind of loved this outfit. I bought the scarf this weekend, and while it has more of a spring-like pattern, it goes with so many of my clothes that I couldn’t wait to wear it. Oh, and guess what shoes I’m wearing again? That’s right – my brown heels. I warned you.
