Mattie is one of my favourite bloggers in all of blog land and when she announced her new weekly link-up, Weekly Lessons, I decided that the first day of the link up was a good time to get back into the swing of things (its loooong overdue).
Things I've learned within the last week
Never leave things until the last minute
It may have worked for me to pull all nighters back in College but it just doesn't work anymore - I love sleep too much. I left a few things from my August Goals until the last minute and I have been telling myself I will stay up later at night to have more time to get them done. Yeah... that definitely hasn't happened. Now I only have tonight to finish it all and all nighters just don't sound fun anymore
HIMYM will never get old
After FINALLY finishing The Office I wasn't sure what I wanted to start next. I have plans to start the 2nd season of How To Get Away With Murder now that its finally on Netflix (more on that in my September Goals post on Friday), re-watch Gilmore Girls, plus MN wants me to start Parks and Rec. Life has been pretty hectic this past week though so instead I just went back to HIMYM and started all over again. The funny thing is, this is probably at least the 10th time I've rewatched the series from start to finish and I just picked up on something in Season 1 that I never realized until now - you find out the mother's name in the very first season, in the Thanksgiving episode. Seriously, this show will never get old to me
Target is the worst place to go when you're on a budget
Things just magically appear in my cart - I swear I don't know how it happens. I went so long without Target trips because I wasn't going down to the States very often, but now that I'm going down at least once a month I just can't help myself - I need all the things! I mean, you can never have too many coffee mugs, right?!
Don't make appointments without having a calendar or your schedule in front of you
I've had a gift certificate for a gel polish manicure since Christmas. CHRISTMAS. Twice now I have called to make an appointment and not realized until after I make the appointment that I won't even be in Canada for when I made the appointment. I need a personal assistant just to keep track of my schedule for me. At this rate I won't be getting them done until this Christmas has passed...
Getting back into blogging is HARD
Why I ever took a break is beyond me - I should never have done that because now it is SO hard to get back into things. I have a list of posts a mile long that need to get completed - finding the time to sit down and write them is the hard part. Making it back to this space of mine on a regular basis is definitely going on my September goals! I've sat at my computer so many times over the last week and the words just aren't coming - I think once I have my to do list whittled down I will finally be able to concentrate (or so I hope)
