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!
