Wrap ups, updates and such

Do you ever wake up on a Monday morning and think "This is going to be the week that I get my shit together" and then you have one of those weeks where you feel like you are being dragged down? Well that has been my week every week for the past 8 weeks. It's not because I am choosing not to make things better, but with the move, my job, and life and general I have been feeling really overwhelmed lately. Today I decided would be a good day to update you on my life, my blog, and everything in between. Kind of a wrap of the past 8 weeks of sorts.

As most of you know I made the decision to move in with R. I officially moved in with him the first week of May. The transition period has been really hard for me and work being very demanding these day I have just felt utterly drained. Between all of that I got a rare infection in my lymph nodes and that has dragged me even further down. I have decided June was going to be the month that I finally get it all balanced. I need to. It is really unhealthy to be so stressed and worn out all of the time.

The good news is R and I will be making our final move in 10 days into our new townhouse. I am beyond excited to have all of the moving done and a space to really call our own. Right now I feel like I am living in R's home, even though he wants me to make it feel like mine as well. Anyone who has moved in with anyone into their current spaces, knows this is hard sometimes.

Something else that has made me a little off lately is the misplacement of my planner. It has been missing since the initial move from my apartment to R's. I never thought I would feel so lost without a little book, but I am. I started to rely on it and now it's frustrating not to have it in front of me. Anyone else have that problem?

Okay now onto blog news. I am not the happiest with my blog content lately. I feel like it has been forced and not well thought about. I felt like I have just published stuff to get it done. I am in the process of re-thinking my writing and getting stuff in order. I want this to be a space people want to come back to time and time again. Right now I don't feel like that is true. So come July expect to see better content and more personal blogs. I have failed on a few series and such and I want to make sure those come to life soon. No more excuses.

Now as far as social media goes, I have been lacking there as well. I am more of a fan of Instagram lately and Twitter has definitely suffered. I am not trying to ignore anyone or not follow back. I've just been really scare there lately. Facebook has been neglected for a long time now. Anyone still using it? Now for the newbies. I am now on SnapChat  (Find me @thetrishlist) and Periscope (@TrishListBlog). I am still getting the hang of using both of those. I am a little late to the SnapChat party but I feel like I am happening with the Periscope! Anyone else using them?

Anything I've missed? Anything you want to know? Let me know in the comments! Thank you all for being patient with me and I look forward to more interactions with you all in the upcoming weeks!

Happy Monday!

  1. That sucks that things have been rough, but hopefully they're finally looking up. I hope your new townhouse is amazing, and I'm sure it will help make your space feels like "ours" instead of "his." I had the same feeling when I moved in with my boyfriend. Because he had picked everything out, and I had to fight him for closet space and work with his decorations and so on. Now that we've lived together for a couple years, everything is so integrated that I don't always remember who started with what!

  2. Girl, I have had those weeks too often! I can't wait to see your revived content! You'll rock it, Trish!

  3. Thanks girl! I can't wait to get back into the game! :)

  4. I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels out of place. Soon I will get that our feeling and things won't be so awkward!
