So I've been at this blog thing for a while now. Okay, well not recently but in the grand scheme of things I think my sticktoitiveness in keeping up this space for the past three years and one month is kind of cool, right? Especially with my tendency to get bored of things (Mom, remember that time I took horseback riding lessons for 3 months because I was just BORED?! Yeah, sorry about that). But lately I've been doing a half-assed job when I stop in to say hi and I'm not exactly sure why. Maybe it's because I'm not in grad school anymore and as a result am not chained to an IV which pumps me full of caffeine and convinces me that I have really important things to tell you all or maybe it's because I'm a pinterest addict and fall into the trap of just mooching off of other people's creativity instead of relying on my own. But regardless of the reason, it's something that I'm gonna work on, promise. Though I still think it's imperative to post an obnoxious number of pictures of my dog in costume and won't hesitate to show you a bathing suit I've been lusting over every now and then, my goal is to get back to the heart of this little blog...you know, the good stuff (like this or this). So there it is...putting it out into the universe. And since clearly my Lenten declarations that I'm giving up plain goldfish and jcrew.com have already bitten the dust, maybe there's hope for this one? Here's hoping!
