Something a little personal

Some of you might be wondering what has been happening – I started out the month so strong and now I feel like I only have had time to post in my blogging challenges. (Which I’m super proud of, btw.  But not what I want to do for the rest of the month.)

If you don’t know from a few posts in I’m in the process of moving. In a period of a three weeks we have put our house on the market and even sold it. Step one… done. Now we are working on finding a home that meets both of our needs.  Which we found as of yesterday. But the issue is that there is currently a bidding war on it. Sigh.

Usually that’s when my depression will kick in and I’ll be like – “nope… nope… let’s just move on.” But, seriously this house is perfect for us. It’s got a big backyard with ample space in the front for parking. There’s an apartment downstairs for a renter, and the kitchen is beautiful. Oh yeah – It has a two car garage with the height so Travis can put in a hoist sometime soon. The only downfall is that it’s on a busy street.  But with the location of the house and the mature trees around it… the sound doesn’t travel past the closed windows. *Bonus for Travis when he’s working his night shifts and needs to sleep in the day.

So, we are trying as best that we can to put in an acceptable offer.  You have to try for a home that could be ours for 10+ years.  Now it’s a waiting game to hear if they have accepted it or to start over from square one and go back out and look at more houses. Double sigh.

I apologize for not being active as of late. School has only 9 days left and everyone is antsy. I know that with summer I’ll be able to get back to my posting schedule and really stick to my goals.

How is everything with you going?

Week 24 – 3 cities I want to visit

Well, hello again and welcome to another installment of Sarah Emily’s 52 week blog challenge.  Today we talk about week 24 and stating what 3 cities I want to visit.  I think that this one will be a tad difficult due to the fact that I want to travel a lot, yet hate flying.  I figured I’d put 6 cities on here, 3 that I want to see in Canada as well as 3 that I would love to see outside of North America.

3 Cities I want to visit in Canada

  1. Vancouver, British Columbia – My brother-in-law used to live out there, as well as a good friend did.  I’m sure that together they would be able to create an awesome itinerary for me so that I would have a blast without being consumed by the boredom fairy.  Also, Supernatural is filmed out there.  Bonus!
  2. Quebec City , Quebec –  Good friends went on a road trip to Quebec City and loved every moment of it.  I’d like to go sometime over the next couple of years to see it.  With a French speaking app in hand.
  3. Nova Scotia – Anywhere that Anne of Green Gables went to. – I’d have to make this trip with my sister, Jen or she’d most likely kill me.  Since she was the avid reader of Anne of Green Gables series.  I only saw the movies (I cheated. Lol.)

3 Cities I want to visit outside Northern America

I’ve seen so many beautiful images all over the net of these various cities and though they are by far not the only ones that I want to go to.  They are however my top three picks for travel in the near future.  You know – after we win the Lotto and such.

  1. Prague, Czech Republic
  2. Barcelona, Spain
  3. Bruges, Belgium

Week 23 – What blogging has taught me

Hello, hello, hello.  How are you doing today?  I’m doing well – thanks!  Like I said on Monday’s post I will be doing two posts this week for Sarah Emily’s 52 week challenge.  Today we are talking about week 23 and what blogging has taught me.

I’ll be honest – I’ve tried blogging in the past for a few weeks yet never got the hang of it and stopped.  I think I’ve done about 3-4 different blogs and when no one was reading them I simply quit it.  (Silly now because I really had no idea what I was doing and what to do, like where to promote or anything.)  Now, I’ve been blogging for about 8 months and slowly working towards where I want to go.

I feel like I’ve been growing as a writer as well as finding myself (accepting myself) for who I am now.  This blog has changed from its original conception and has morphed into different versions of itself throughout these 8 months.  I’m still trying to find what fits with me now as well as sharing with you lovely folks my past, my constant struggles, and my hopes for the future.  This is a true lifestyle blog with more focus on a few things nerdy as well as mental health issues.

 

Blogging has taught me to find my voice and to stand up and share with the world my truth as well as what has helped me.  It has taught me that if I want to improve I have to force myself to be there (which with depression it can be hard), as well as push myself out of my comfort zone.
