As some of you can already tell from my various bucket lists, my 12 Months of Happiness series and my Must Have series, I LOVE coming up with lists! It’s just so much fun jotting down ideas and making lists (and then crossing off all the things on the list!). Since it’s 2018 (it still feels weird typing that number out) I thought it would be fun to share a few of my goals for the year.
I’ve never been one for resolutions, I prefer setting goals for myself. That way, there’s less pressure if things don’t work out exactly how I planned (unlike resolutions, where I feel so stressed to achieve them!).
Here are some of my goals for 2018:
Happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Sorry for the radio silence (both here on the blog and on social media) lately, I’m currently road tripping through the Midwest (more on that later). I just wanted to stop by and say “Hey!”. I also wanted to give you guys a little “life update/life lately post”.
I’m not going to lie, it’s been a little difficult juggling this blog and my screenplay. But I am determined to make it work! Although life has been a tad bit stressful lately, I’m so excited because CHRISTMAS is right around the corner. And as most of you may know, this is my favorite time of year! I have SO many fun things and trips planned for these last few weeks of 2017.
Here’s what I have planned for the last few weeks of 2017:
Admit it: binge-watching is now a way of life and thanks to Netflix, all of our favorite TV shows (well most of them anyway) are conveniently located in one place! I don’t know about you but one of my favorite ways to spend the weekends is curling up in bed, cuddling with my dog Loki and watching Netflix. Not only is it fun to discover new shows on Netflix but it’s always fun re-watching some of my old favorites (I think I’ve seen every episode of Friends 20+ times and they never get old to me!).
Ever since Daylight Savings happened it’s been getting dark so much earlier and with the cold weather we’ve been experiencing here in Chicago, I haven’t really felt like going outside much. I’ve basically been spending most of my time at my house in my home office working on my screenplay and when I do have a little down time, I turn to my good buddy Netflix.
Here are some of my favorite shows to watch on Netflix:
You guys, Halloween is next week! I’m so excited because next to Christmas, Halloween is my favorite holiday. I just love everything about Halloween. The cool (and sometimes creepy) costumes, CANDY, watching scary movies, it’s just such a fun holiday. Since Halloween is right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to dig up some of my previous Halloween and fall-related posts from the past few years (I still can’t believe that I’ve been blogging for over three and a half years) and do a little roundup post!
If you’ve been following along with this blog since its debut in 2013, I’m pretty sure you’ll be familiar with most of these posts. But I figured for those of you who are newer to the blog, this would be a fun (and convenient) way to check out some of the fall-related posts you may have missed!
Here’s a few of my favorite Halloween and fall-related posts:
One of my favorite things about blogging is being able to blog about whatever I want. You know, since it’s MY blog. If I want to blog about Disney, I can. If I want to blog about my dog Loki, guess what, I can! There’s a certain freedom about blogging that I just really love. I grew up loving to read and write and I even graduated college (in 2014) with a degree in Journalism (and a minor in Political Science) but most of my school life consisted of having to write what I was told. Although I LOVE being about to have the freedom to blog about whatever I want (whenever I want), I have to admit that sometimes I do miss having little prompts/themed writing assignments because I often get writer’s block (hey, it’s hard having to come up with so many fun new things to blog about each week!). So I thought what better way to get over writer’s block than to write a post about blog post ideas for when you have writer’s block (see what I did there?). So today I’m sharing 25 blog post ideas for when you’re having a serious case of writer’s block!
