New Year!.. Now What?

Ok, ok I’ll say it. I’ve been slacking mucho.

I haven’t written a new post in months.
I didn’t get to my annual ‘New year, New goals’ post.
And I missed my 3rd year blogiversary!

I know, how could I? Ok let’s pretend I celebrated…
*And cue cute, disco background photo of me below* 😉


There have been an interesting turn of events, to say the least, in the past months and I’ve just been feeling bleh.

A new temporary, opportunity came up at work. And because of that, all my creative energy has been geared towards something else. And I’ve been drained when I come home. And I just want to be lazy on the weekends.

Is this really the 9-5 life? I don’t know how people keep up. Especially with no windows in the work environment. Should be illegal.


Then of course Black Friday and the Holidays come around and that’s always a busy time in retail. And just when I thought I could breathe come January, my contract at work is up in the air and I got sick with the flu.

I never get sick with the flu! I can handle a cold, but this flu hit hard and bae got it too, so for the second week of 2020 we were feverish and cold sweating it up in bed – yuck!

Next thing you know, I’m stuck with a stupid, dry cough and January has flown by and there are eleven months left to 2020. Eleven! I haven’t even made my vision board!


So what are we gonna do?

We are going to hustle.

I’m trying to do this for realsies this time where I focus on me. What’s best for me. And I’m not going to worry about explaining or apologizing for the decisions I make that better my life for me.

I think the reoccurring theme is me here, and not to be selfish, but I think I’ve put myself on the back burner long enough. And I’m bored of listening to other people’s goals and plans for me because the only person that knows what I want is… you guessed it… my chinchilla – jk, it’s obviously me.

That being said. I’m going to put more effort into my blog posts. I’ve seen a major spike in views last year, thanks to a UK company with the same name – hello to my UK friends! I know you may be coming for another reason, but I hope you stay for me 🙂

So with more views, I need more content.
More importantly, more consistency.
I need to get my creative juices flowing once again because L&L is in its third year! We’re in a fully committed relationship now.

Plus, third time’s a charm, right?

Thus, to tie in my regular January posts,

Happy New Year & Happy 3rd Year Blogiversary!
