It’s not a secret that I’ve been working a lot more than usual lately. I’ve said that a lot. My work is anywhere is from 30 minutes-1 hour from my house. Working more days gives me less time to blog and less things to talk about via blogging. With a 40 hour work week, I’m also driving between 5-10 hours a week. That means I’m outside of my house (work related) around 45-50 hours weekly. That doesn’t count time hanging out with friends.
I haven’t been blogging any less (nor do I really want to stop blogging) but I often times find myself with less things to say. I mean I could talk about waking up, working out, driving to work, coming home, playing around on the internet and then going to bed. Lather, rinse, repeat. That doesn’t seem that exciting to me, nor does posting my daily eats. Sorry that’s not my blog flow. I guess if posting about my daily food intake and food payed my bills I might be more inclined. Changing my blog to create more content seems like a lose for me and a snooze for readers. That’s my humble opinion though and if you like posting your daily food intake, good for you. I digress.
On my (work) off days, I’ve found I like to hang out with friends and relax. I don’t like spend more then an hour or two blogging. So I don’t like to spend all my free time blogging. I really enjoy blogging but I don’t live to blog.
I’m not sure exactly what I’m saying, I guess more or less that while I’m having a social life and exist outside the internet, it’s not life riveting or things I feel are necessary “blog worthy”.
Do you really care what kind of food I ate today? (Only if it’s a diner).
Do you care my favorite color is yellow? Not really.
So anyways what have I been up to outside of boring, adult things?
Last week I got to hang out with a good friend Melissa. It was a really good time and really nice to catch up. Melissa has been a huge support system for me and our help and advice is untradeable. It seems like so long ago and it was only last week.
I also got to hang out with Danielle and Amelia who led me into the city. (PS: Danielle just PRed in her 5k on a hard, hilly course in the middle of marathon training..). Last Tuesday, I started a pretty rigorous schedule where I went to NYC and then drove straight to work Wednesday in South Jersey that morning. I worked from Wednesday to Monday (around 50 hours). Outside of meeting Kate Grace, I didn’t talk a lot about my time in NYC. I really surprised myself with how much fun I had. We walked around NY, tried a cool foodie truck (my first foodie truck ever!) and then headed to the Brass Monkey to meet some Oiselle teammates. While I was nervous to physically go into the city, I had a lot of fun.
Then I worked, worked, and worked. I am glad I did and I enjoyed each day but it was tiresome for sure. Those days consisted of work, sleep, work sleep (and two workouts I believe).
I’m now reaping the rewards of just relaxing and getting my house straightened up. I was going to plan more events with friends but found I just needed some time to just relax.
I think as a blogger, there is an unseen pressure that “my life is so exciting, therefore I blog”. That certainly isn’t the case and I have several weeks of being “boring” or just lather, rinse, repeating.
I wish I could post more exciting life moments but I don’t have any. My biggest life update is that I’m just continuing living my life.
I created an anonymous question box so if you have any idea’s or questions feel free to ask below.
Questions for you:
What are you up to this week?
Any big plans this weekend?
It’s RnR Philly so I’ll probably be watching and cheering with that. Since my work is partnering with Brooks we have a lot of cool things going on. Let me know if you’ll be there!
