Another Rainy Fall Day

The perfect type of day to spend in bed, but I get too bored too easily…

Hello All,

I am deviating from my normal blog content because I am honestly so lost as to what I wanted to write today so I figured I would just give a bit of an update on my current situation as I lay in my boyfriend’s bed, waiting for him to feed me,

So, it is the end of my favorite month of the year and it is a bit bittersweet because I do not feel like I have accomplished as much as I usually do in Fall. I did do a bunch of stuff like apple picking, pumpkin picking, and going to haunted houses and mazes, but I sort of feel like I front loaded my month and left myself with no time to enjoy the end of the month. I also didn’t really have the time to think of a creative Halloween costume this year, which is a bummer because I usually take pride in my creativity. However, I was a witch and my friend did some really cool makeup for me so it sort of made up for the unoriginal costume idea.

In terms of my mental health lately, it’s sort of meh. I have been having a lot of ups and a lot of downs so I really can’t give a solid overview. I feel like I have been a little more anxious lately than usual but I think it is because I am feeling a bit swamped by certain things.

I am currently trying to get in the swing of a new yoga training system that deviates a bit from my original plans. This is stressing me out a bit because I planned my life around the original training dates and now I am trying to sort my life again to make myself and everyone happy while still upholding my responsibilities.

I am also a little stuck in the career department. I love the job I am at now, but they probably won’t be able to bring me on full time by the end of the year which means that I will probably have to start the job search up in December or right at the beginning of the New Year. I am sort of dreading it because I am really unsure where I see myself at this point.

Lastly, I am in a terrible blogging slump. I am usually ahead by at least 5 blog posts but currently, I have nothing scheduled and I am frantically typing in my boyfriend’s bed while he is sleeping. I want to say it’s writers block, but it isn’t really. I am just not motivated right now to write as much as I had been. I still love writing but I definitely haven’t been in the mood to sit down and bang out like 7 blog posts in a few hours. Plus a lot of my blog posts are photo driven which sucks because that means I need time to take the photos and if the photos are of me, then I need someone to take those photos for me, which is hard to find the time to do.

Overall, I am feeling meh. Sort of in a mid-autumn slump. I plan to work my way out of it though. I am going to try to take some time this week to sit down with my planner and write out a plan to do everything. I also want to write a bunch of blog posts that day so I have stuff prepared to take a bit of weight off my shoulders. Plus, I am going to a yoga workshop this weekend, so I will have at least a couple of blog posts I plan to write for that!

The best thing you can do during a slump is embrace it, acknowledge it, and create a plan of attack to get over it. I am working on mine and plan to start November with fresh, new content, and a lot more to share.

Thank you to everyone who actually takes the time to read my rambles and if you have anything you would like to see me talk about on my blog, please feel free to leave a comment~
