A rant + Life Update

I wanted to let you know that I'm kind of giving up on this place.  If that wasn't evident from my lack of posts, I'm here telling you now.  Now I'm not going to go on pointing fingers, but I feel like blogger is the same shit day after day, week after week.  And don't get me wrong, while I like reading that "shit" (really, that's harsh) it get's old after a while.

When I first started blogging in 2012, it was different.  Some of the "big name" bloggers that I read daily shared actual stories of their lives, and well when you think of that, it's kinda creepy that we even tell the internet of crazies our personal lives... but they were real stories.  They weren't sharing clothing items that you need to buy yesterday, or recipes off of pinterest, or work outs. Or how they styled their homes.  It was real-life stories that people could often relate to.

Nowadays, I feel like I'm just reading the same stuff, over, and over... and I'm kind of sick of it.  Hey, look at this purse I got, look at my beautifully decorated home office, look at this shopping haul I just did, come join me on youtube, check out this girl, she's so awesome! It's all the same.  We are all the same person really.  Again, I'm not pointing fingers at anyone but I include myself here.  I've turned into the "typical blogger" that people think of when they hear the word "blogger".  I'm just tired of it all.  Aren't you guys sick of reading the same thing everyday?  There is no real content.  Sure, they can be lengthy posts, and probably extremely time consuming to put together. But what good is a "lifestyle" blog, if we are sharing things that aren't even our own ideas/stories? It's no good, that's what.

I'm not saying that I'm deleting this site, I really don't want to do that. Because when the mood strikes me, I find that this is the first place I come to.  I really have formed some "friends" and will continue to keep in touch with them with different resources.  I guess what i'm saying is, if and when I do update, expect the real me, and not the "online" version of me that I want you to see.

So with that ridiculous introduction of a post, I will let you know that I've been completely crazy at work.  I'm finding as the days go by, my bossypants is going back to her old ways.  She has been out of the office a lot lately, and when the boss is away, this mouse doesn't play. Isn't that sad? Well I goof off here and there, but I do that when she's in too but get my work done.  When she isn't in, it is legitimately a nightmare for me.  All I do for 8 straight hours is print emails. She gets hundreds per day.  It's so freaking time consuming. "All you do is print all day? That's so easy!" UM. No. It's REALLY not.  I had an excel spreadsheet to print yesterday that had 25 embedded word docs inside it. Pain in my ass. I had so many "color" presentations to print, and the color printer was broken half the day.  I had a word document that needed to be formatted from size A4 to Letter size.  It's not just CTRL + P and done with.  This task is so freaking frustrating that I'd rather go get her laundry than do this. I have grown to loathe printing, because of her.  Guess what I'm doing today? I won't even answer as I'm sure you already know!

What else has been going on with me?  I've got a very busy year and next ahead of me.  I recently was asked to be a bridesmaid in one of my friends wedding.  Tonight, I'm going out with my sister in law, and I have a feeling today is the day she's going to ask me to be in her wedding as well.  Two weddings within 6 months of each other and I'm already freaking.  How do you people that have a zillion weddings go to so many and not freak! So needless to say, my future life plans are put on the back burner (starting a family) until mid next year.  I really don't want to be pregnant in a bridesmaid dress.  If I had to be in one, I would be in my sister in law's.  Remember she is the one with a very expensive taste? Maybe I'd get out of that bachelorette bash to Vegas.  Who does that when you're from Jersey? No one. We have Atlantic City for those shenanigans.  Anyway, so with that said, Michael and I have been dying to go to Walt Disney World, FOREVER... well 5 years forever. But unfortunately (fortunately?) the Caribbean ALWAYS has won.  There's just something about at tropical island that screams "RELAXING VACATION" and not "GO GO GO!" to me.  But I finally bit the bullet and planned a long weekend there.  We are going mid-November of this year for 4 days. To say I'm excited is an understatement.  If I didn't just book the trip, I wouldn't have ever done it.

30 days till I visit the most Magical Place on Earth.  This will be Michael's first time...I went in High School. I can't wait to see how he takes it in. Any tips and tricks for visiting, let me know!


  1. YAY for you biting the bullet and booking your trip for Disney! You're going to have so much fun!

    And I feel you on the blogging situation! I'm right there with you!

  2. I'm sad that blogging has turned into something that you don't enjoy anymore...hopefully you'll come back often and share your updates!! Not that you didn't already know - but you are going to love Disney!!!

  3. I appreciate your honesty and the fact that you're you and real when you come to this place. And I am so excited for you that you're going to Disney! It's the best during the middle of November cause it's all decorated for the holidays! I hope you both have the best time!!

  4. I'm gonna miss you...you better keep in touch and keep fueling my WTF Wednesday series with your hilarious stories!

  5. yay for disney!! how exciting!
    i'm gonna miss you, i love your blog! but i understand if you're not feeling it, you're not feeling it.
    I agree with some of your intro about the 'typical blogger'. There are some bloggers that honestly, I could go without reading. But for people to read mine, I need to read theirs. That being said, a medium size chunk of my blogs are ones I love reading, and it's because they don't fit that mold - and you were (are!) absolutely one of them, I don't think your posts were 'typical' or tiring, though I agree some are.
    Sometimes I wonder why I even have a blog, like what's the point? people don't want to read what I have to say. Sometimes what's on my mind is boring, and I'm sure people don't want to read it. But I just have to remember its for me, not them.. to some extent. I have to enjoy what I'm doing.
    Ugh printing emails - no thanks! I had to print 100 pdfs one day and it took me ALL EFFING DAY.

  6. ok magic kingdom -- i'll email you about this shizz as i'm here now.

    as for blogging - i read stuff i want to read and ignore stuff i don't care about. when i'm really busy, i tend to only read the blogs in my "favorites" folder which is comprised of about 7 or 8 blogs. i only comment when i feel the need to comment....this is because when i was hardcore into blogging, i would comment on EVERY.SINGLE.BLOG i followed which was close to 80...now that i'm so busy at work, i don't have time to comment on all those blogs!

  7. I have been struggling with writing lately because I don't want to share the latest fashion trend or give ppl a tour of my apartment (it would be embarrassing!). But I want to share my life and my stories. But Creepers. Ugh. It's a struggle. I hope you come back to your blog eventually but I completely understand needing a break!

  8. You know, I've actually been feeling that way about blogging too. That's why I've been wanting to change my blog into a fashion and beauty one...because it's something real and different every day. But we'll see how that goes ;)

  9. Haha, we DO have AC for those shenanigans! The wedding thing is hard because you're going to have to be a part of everything. I've never been a Bridesmaid, but I've heard it's very time consuming. Good luck! I hope you do continue to update, I love reading about the "real" you, in a totally non-creepy way!

  10. This Michael has never been to Disney either so if for some reason yours can't go I'll be happy to take his place!

    As for the comments about blogging... so much agreement! I used to try to keep up and then realized I want being me, even though I had a lot of traffic. Now, I don't really have a lot going on that's "share-worthy" so my blog has taken a back seat and I'm okay with that. I pretty much have got to the point where I skip over all the clothing, decor, makeup posts unless it's something that specifically caught my attention by the title.
