How has another Monday come and gone, y’all? 2015 will be here before you know it, and I just want to file a petition to have every 2014 goal I made for myself to be erased from the books. I think I said I wanted to read more, waste less produce, run faster, gain muscle, and plenty of other nonsense. Very few checks on that list, folks. What I have done is become a champion Netflix watcher. So, I mean, I guess that’s something to brag about. This weekend I really honed that skill. This weekend was also our first “boring” one in a while, and it was much needed. Instead of the usual two-sentences-per-picture captions, I only have the brain capacity for two words. It happens.
Ate-some. Then-photographed. (<-That totally counts as two words.)
Now I’m just sitting here trying to resist the urge to write a post about 2015 resolutions, because saying them out loud usually means I fall on my face by about January 17th. I’d rather keep that humiliation to myself. What I do want to talk about is blogging. Specifically, a lack thereof. I used to plan, photograph, and start drafting posts on the weekends. I also devoted a lot of that time to responding to comments, commenting on other blogs, and sharing content on social media. I’ve all but quit doing that. I work longer hours now, so the weekends need to be completely work-free. I’m basically riding the line between blogging and, well, not blogging. I don’t want to quit, but I also don’t want to spend the amount of time I used to on it. And I’m such an all-or-nothing person. Maybe that should be my resolution? To stop being weird. To stop worrying about a hobby. To just live. Or something else that sounds semi-inspirational like that.
Anyway, I’m not really sure what my plan is. Find more time to plan posts? Quit posting altogether? See, I’m still not okay with the occasional pop-in like I’ve been doing. Because I’m nuts.
Question: Have you ever had scallops over braised lentils and pistachios? Because you should try it. And, yes, I’m trying to change the subject from blog stuff. But, I did use the word nuts up there, so I pretty much nailed that segue.
