Hey y’all!! I have been the absolute worst I know. In todays post I am gonna be updating y’all on where I have been. It has almost been a month since I have last posted on the blog. I am so upset at myself for not managing my time well and putting my blog last. So there are a few reasons I have been gone but before I get into them if I have any other bloggers out there reading this, please comment if you have any tips or have ever been in this position.
New York: If y’all follow me on any of my social media accounts then you know that I was in NYC for spring break with my mom. It was my first mother daughter trip ever and I wanted to focus purely on spending time with her. I left my computer at home and spent my days going to shows, shopping, and eating at nice restaurants. Btw, i’ll be doing a travel post on the blog soon (including how we got to watch a taping of The Tonight Show). I had such an incredible time in NYC, I left feeling extremely motivated and excited to put all of my energy into the blog. Unfortunately that has not been the case but after I publish this post I will be more consistent on creating awesome content for y’all.
Weather: If y’all don’t already know this, I am originally from Texas. I am used to the hot weather and sun constantly being out. Living in the midwest my least favorite thing is the weather. It is nothing compared to Texas. Here in Iowa I am constantly surrounded by snow, rain, clouds, negative degree weather, and more. For example, it’s April and if you look outside my window the floor is covered in snow. Not only am I confused on what to publish on the blog but my energy is at an all time low. It is hard when I am wanting to create Spring/Summer content for y’all but I would look so crazy in a dress and heels taking photos with snow in the background. You know what I mean? I don’t know if I am just making excuses but I just think it would look silly.
School/Internship: I have no idea why professors decide to schedule EVERYTHING the last few weeks of the semester but they just do. I have been feeling so overwhelmed with school work lately. I have projects, papers, tests and more coming one after the other. Just last week I had three tests, one presentation, homework assignments, a quiz, and so much more. I have never felt this overwhelmed but with everything due for my classes I have found myself focusing all of my time on school. Also I am in search of a summer internship. I have been going crazy applying to internships in Texas, Kansas City, and Des Moines. I have had multiple interviews a week but unfortunately haven’t been offered the job. I am very accepting of getting told no but because I haven’t found a job I have been spending my free time on LinkedIn instead of TBB.
These is not even everything but as you can see, with all of my stresses not only do I not have the time but I have been feeling so unmotivated. We all experience the feeling of being unmotivated. This month has just been a little difficult but things will get better and my motivation will come back. The sun will come out again and the semester will soon be over. I plan to do so much with the blog this summer but for now this is what I have going on. Once again, I am so sorry for slacking on TBB but thank you for continuing to support me. To all of my new subscribers and followers thank you so much, I promise I am not always this bad lol.
Love y’all!! xoxo, Katie.
