Welcome back to my blog! I know it has been months since I’ve posted, but accelerated summer accounting courses we’re NO joke and very time consuming. I really wanted to focus on the material and a lot of things kind of fail to the way side in my life, including my blog and YouTube channel. But I am back, with a fresh mind and my creative juices are once again flowing.
During these past 10 weeks of nonstop studying, I had a lot of self-reflection on the things that I would rather be doing. Instead of studying so much that I begin to have dreams about percent-of-completion and the new changes in accounting for leases, I kept thinking back to one blog post in particular. I’ll post it here so you can check it out, but all of the memories of that day flooded me, making me want to get out and blog again. I remembered how it was such a beautiful day out and a small festival was happening near downtown. Hubby and I enjoyed some food truck tacos (even though I was upset the cheapest thing was $10) and watched cultural dances before taking a few photos for my blog. I also remember walking away from the crowd to awkwardly strike poses for my husband to snap. For some reason, that day became one of my favorite blog post. It really wasn’t about the photos for me, yes the photos were great to look back on and to capture the moment, but just the experience of getting out and doing things we normally didn’t get the chance to do was pretty awesome.
Now that I have a little more free time, I’m excited about creating content again. Plus, I really want to get back to those experiences and sharing them online. The exchange of online content has really helped me in many ways and situations, and I want to make sure that I contribute my share into that sphere, even if it’s just a comforting feeling, knowing that you aren’t alone in your feelings
Since I’m coming back to my blog after a several month hiatus, I decided to give it a shiny new coat of paint. I’ve always been a big fan of the 1 column + side bar blog layout. But now that I’ve had the chance to see some of the newer options out there, I really fell in love with this new theme.
I really feel like I’m entering a new stage of my life, it may just be because I’m finally getting a break from class, albeit short. Or maybe because I’m 9 months away from graduation! Either way, I’m excited for what the next year has in store.
I’ve been horrible with scheduling my content in the past, but I’m going to try to get at least one post out every Monday. Still trying to figure out my YouTube channel, but my latest videos will always be on my blog near the bottom.
If you’re a new reader or if you’ve been around for a while, take a few minutes to look around my new site. I hope it’s easy to navigate and more visually pleasing. This is now pretty much a lifestyle blog, it’s been hard trying to narrow down on the things I wanted to talk about, but if I had to put a label on my interest in travel, beauty, career+finances and general ramblings about life, I guess it fits into the lifestyle category.
What did you get up to this summer? Work, class or some much needed time off?
