Long time no see. Happy New year! It’s been about 9 months since I’ve written a blog post. When my blog hosting expired back in August I went back and fourth about just not renewing it and deleting this blog all together. But I knew I wouldn’t be about to forgive myself because this blog just holds so many memories. Even if I don’t update it much anymore, I at least want those memories/old posts to look back out. I’ve grown so much as a person since started this blog back in 2013 and I it really makes me smile going back and re-reading old posts.
Warning, this post isn’t going to be super long. This post is mainly to show my appreciation and gratitude for a little game called Animal Crossing: New Horizons. I’ve been a fan of Animal Crossing since it’s 2001 release but for some reason New Horizons hits different! Well, I know the reason. With everything that’s going on in the world and with the “Shelter in Place”, I’ve found myself in a slight… I don’t want to say depression. I’ve just been feeling antsy and anxious.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons could not have come out at a better time! I find myself playing for hours upon hours each day. It’s such a great escape and it’s so darn fun. It’s so much fun that about three and a half weeks ago I decided to really get into the Animal Crossing community by creating an Animal Crossing IG account.
(And you guys, I just hit 500+ followers!).
Happy Easter! I know I don’t normally post on the weekend but let’s face it, we are facing a new normal these days. I don’t know about you guys but I’ve been going stir crazy. I’ve just been sitting at home these past almost 4 weeks. Not just that, I’ve been feeling kinda bummed because I can’t interact (well face to face) with my friends, co-workers or family. But, I always tend to look for the sliver lining in situations so at least I am healthy and still employed.
Still, I can’t deny that it’s been super hard to stay positive lately. That’s why I am trying to focus on the little things that make help me smile, even if it’s just for a second. You all know that I LOVE holidays, so I decided to treat myself this Easter.
Here’s what the “Easter Bunny” got me:
Happy Wednesday friends! Welcome back to another installment of my Weekly Planner Spreads by Months series. I know we are already a full week into April but I’ve been busy busy busy with work and just haven’t had much time to take/edit the photos for this post. At first I thought I would just skip sharing my March planner layouts but I knew I’d regret it later if I didn’t share them.
Better late than never, right?
I really want to get back into the swing of blogging and start uploading more (like I used it). Next week will mark a full month of working from home and I think I’ve finally gotten the hang of it/into a good rhythm. So hopefully, my blogging schedule can get back to normal.
Here’s my weekly planner spreads for March:
Happy Monday. Long time no see (again). I think it goes without saying that this past month has been hectic for pretty much everyone honestly. It’s crazy to think that last month I was living it up at Disney World without a care in the world. And now here am I on week three of social distancing/staying home.
Like most places my state, Illinois, has a “stay a home” order in place. (Which I’m thankful for). And although this order only took effect last week, my job was a little ahead of the curve when it came to working remotely. I officially starting working from home Thursday March 12. So this week will mark three weeks of remote working.
