December Updates

Hello, everybody! It seems I fell off the map there for a bit, but it’s only because things have been extremely busy and especially chaotic this month. Things are slowly, ever so slowly, getting back to normal just as the year comes to a close. Between my personal life and work life I’ve pretty much been in caregiver mode 24/7 and have been feeling burnt out by it, but luckily I have a nice little vacation coming up to hopefully squeeze some rest in and enjoy the holidays. 🙂

That said, here are just some random updates of what’s been going on as of late.

Update #1: Due to the previously mentioned craziness, I missed out on my book club’s Christmas party this year which was a total bummer. We always wear ugly Christmas sweaters and I had been so pumped to show off my new R2-D2 one. All is not lost, though, since I’m planning on wearing Christmas sweaters to work the rest of this week, so I can proudly display that one, my Deadpool one, and my “Bah Hum-Pug” one. One day I hope to have amassed enough ugly Christmas sweaters to be able to wear one each day of December leading up to Christmas. Mwahaha!

Update #2: I recently reached my goal of 45 books read for the year, though I’ll admit a lot of them were graphic novels. 😛 This was quite the busy year. I’m upping my goal for next year though and aiming for 50 this time. I’ve even made a list of some of the priority titles I’m looking to read in 2018. Some are new, some old, some are novels, graphic novels, and there are even a few poetry collections in there, too. It should be a pretty interesting year in reading for me. 🙂

Update #3: I’m seriously thinking about pampering myself during this time off by going to get my hair done. Planning on getting it chopped and colored. Thinking of throwing some purple and/or blue in the mix. It’s been too long since I’ve put any fun colors in it and I’m feeling like it’s a good way to kick off the new year!

Update #4: Started doodling again. Planning on doodling more in the new year. These are just 2 rough sketches with some highlighter and sharpie thrown in, but I’m hoping to really get back into it in 2018. Maybe even hook up my art tablet again. It’s been a while.

Update #5: I recently got awarded Employee of the Quarter (quarter of the year) at my job. I was really surprised since I’ve only been there a little over 6 months. Woo!

So, that’s it for my little updates. Hope you guys have all been well. I’ll be catching up on your posts to see what all has been going on. Feel free to fill me in on any exciting updates of your own. I’d love to hear about them. 🙂

Haircuts, Mushrooms, Baby Birds and a New Job

I feel like it’s been too long since I last posted, but I am super sleepy, so this is just gonna be a random update post full of Blah Blah Blahs.

Blah #1: I finally decided it was time for a change when it came to my long hair and I went and got 10 inches of it chopped off. It’s the shortest I’ve ever had it before, and I love it! ❤ I went to a beauty school and got it done by a student which was kind of scary, but she did a great job though and I’m absolutely loving it. 🙂

Blah #2: I got to try morel mushrooms for the first time just recently. They might not be much to look at, but once they’re cooked they’re delicious!

Morel mushrooms: hideous to look at, tasty to nom.

Blah #3: There’s a nest with a couple little baby robins in it out back. I got to see them today while the mama robin was out and about. I kept a good distance so as not to disturb them but it was really cool to finally get to see the little guys. 🙂

Blah #4: I’m in the works of getting a new job! I’m pretty excited about it. Part of me is nervous since I’m always a little nervous about change, but I’m really looking forward to it and I know it will be a good thing. 🙂 It even has the hours I was really hoping for.

That’s it for the blah blah blahs right about now. I can barely keep my eyes open at the moment, so it’s off to bed for me and Bailey.
