a quick update

Hi guys! Sorry I guess I took a week off from my blog without even realizing it; it was always in the back of my mind, but I kept drawing a blank when I thought about what I wanted to blog about. But I just wanted to let you all know I'm still alive! (cue cricket sounds)

I spent this weekend with some friends and while it was nice, it was also kind of stressful. Remember what I wrote that post about being an introvert? That's kind of what I felt all weekend - I just wanted to be myself, have some me time. But at the same time, that's the last thing I needed - to be left alone. I didn't want to spend the weekend wallowing in my own self-pity, so in times like that, I'm still not entirely sure what to do.

We went out for dinner on Saturday night and I ordered a New Orleans benefit with house potatoes on the side; it was really good, and I forgot to eat my leftovers. (Eeep.)

I'm possibly going to the beach this Saturday; I'm not quite sure. To be fairly honest, I don't want to. But at the same time, it was my idea to be begin with. What would you do if you knew you needed to take some time off from other people, but you already semi-made plans? I'm actually craving for just a weekend to myself to sleep in, cook, have a Netflix binge, maybe go for a run, do whatever, but I just want to be by myself for a while.

The only downside to rescheduling is that the reason why I came up with this idea in the first place is because my friend's birthday is on Sunday so I thought hanging out on Saturday would be a good idea, but at the time, I didn't take into account how exhausting and stressed out I was feeling.

Anywho, yeah. Just wanted to post a quick update and I hope you all are doing well!


  1. You need to have me-time that is productive. Sometimes I just need to be alone but if I sit at home doing nothing then I wind up feeling depressed and anxious. So what I need to do is be more productive in my down time - write a blog, exercise, cook, watch a movie ive been meaning to watch or take a therapeutic bath :-) makes all the difference

  2. I often have that sam problem, I just want everyone to go away and stop draining me of my energy but at the same time I don't want to be lonely and wallow. I think at those times its when my closest friends become really evident, the ones who will lie with me and listen to music and occasionally talk but not put pressure on me to do anything but be there.

    Always take all the time you need, we will be here when you get back :) xx
