Life Lately

Wow, well it's been about two weeks since I've put a blog post up. I've been so busy with moving into my dorm, starting school, and on top of that have been dealing with some family things lately. I hate making excuses for not getting posts up, because my blog is so important to me and I like to put a lot of work into it. Sometimes, though, you just have to take some time for yourself, and take a step back for a little bit. I've just been in a bit of a funk recently, but it is time to get out of it.

Do you ever just get those random times when you get so overwhelmed with everything, and every little thing you need to do seems so daunting? I guess that's what I've been dealing with lately, and unfortunately my blog got put on the back burner. You can't stop life, though, so I just need to start getting back into the swing of things. This weekend was spent organizing my life, and getting my schedule figured out again for the school year. 
I didn't realize just how stressed out I was until Sunday, when all I wanted to do was stay in bed all day. Anxiety can be a nasty little beast sometimes, but I feel like I have a handle back on my life again. It's so nice when you have supportive friends and a wonderful family to lean on when things get a little crazy. I just talked to my parents for a while, organized my living space, and got a handle on my schedule. Making sure my life is organized and clean is one of the ways I get my anxiety under control. When I feel like I have control over some of the things in my life (I have realized you can't actually control everything about life), I feel much more at ease. I know that's true for a lot of people, but sometimes it can be hard to get out of weird funks.
I just wanted to do a quick little life update and let you guys know that I'm still alive. I have a lot of ideas for more fall-related posts, and just blog posts in general, so I'm really excited to resume with regular posts!

Thank you so much for reading, and have a wonderful day! :)


  1. So nice to see a post from you :)
    I totally know where you're coming from. I've been feeling a lot like that myself actually. When I get overwhelmed about something, I end up feeling like that towards everything and then its like my mind just shuts off. I can't even think about anything anymore. Anxiety is terrible. Glad to hear you feel like you're getting things back under control :)

  2. I get like this as well, sometimes things that I love to do I don't even want to think about. And I love cleaning up my living space whether it be my desk or my bedroom, giving it a good clean makes me feel really calm and organised x Hope your anxiety is getting out the way and you can go guns blazing for the rest of the year xxx

    1. I totally love cleaning too - it's so therapeutic! Thank you! :)

  3. Nawww sending positive vibes, love and hugs your way Kendra and hope it all starts to settle down soon! My life has been in that weird funk space for a lot of this year and I think when you can really simplify life down a bit or be able to rationalize what's happening it can really help. Supportive family, I really have no idea what I would do with out them! Glad you are getting through it and the sun will come out again!


    1. Aw thank you so much! :) And those are seriously the best things!!
