"But Juliette, didn't you just publish a post like, an hour ago?"
Well yes, I did. But it was a sponsored post and I know I get a little disappointed when I go to read a blog and I feel like I'm not getting to read any actual content, and well, I don't know if my word vomit today is going to count as actual content but I figured I'd give you two posts to read if you want because I'm like super generous or something.
Oh and if you want to read my sponsored post about U by Kotex and click on all the links for me that would just be like SO cool. You'll get a free sample if you do so it's like we both win. But if you hate me for blatantly asking you to do that then I'm sorry and I won't be mad if you don't click anything. In fact you can just ignore this whole paragraph.
WHAT IS EVEN HAPPENING I DO NOT KNOW.
There are so may things I want to sit down and write about, but my brain is having trouble just focusing on one thing, so I've been avoiding fleshing out anything in detail. Because of that, I'm just going to give you snippets of what's been going on in my life lately and stuff.
1) Probably the biggest thing I've been thinking about lately is what to do when my lease is up. At this point I'm planning on being in my apartment until the end of September, but after that I don't know. There are a few options and I'm not quite sure what to do yet. I could move back in with my parents for a little bit and save some money, I could try and find an apartment by myself but that's really expensive and I probably wouldn't be able to buy food, I could find a roommate but I really don't want to do that.... and some other options but I can't really blog about this in too much detail because there are so many unknowns and big decisions to make and I don't want to put all of that on the internet. But like really, what should I do?
2) Dating long distance is hard. Actually, dating in general is hard. There's another person involved in my life and when I make decisions (especially big decisions like #1) I have to make sure to keep that other person in mind and like, it's hard enough making decisions with just myself in mind. Does that make any sense? Do you know what I mean? Please tell me you do.
3) I've never been one to write too much about my weight/body on my blog (I think the only time I did was here), but for the past couple of months I've been trying to make better choices, and I've been seeing some really good results. I've been trying to be more active and hiking/jogging most days during the week, and last night I went to a barre class for the first time. Barre is like a mix of ballet, yoga, and pilates I think. Right? You can correct me if I'm wrong. It was hard but such a good workout! In addition to being more active I've been guzzling water (and peeing like 3 times an hour it feels like) and trying to make better eating choices. Like, I don't eat donuts for breakfast or candy for dinner, and I'm trying not to eat bread again. It was really hard at first but it's gotten a lot easier, and seeing results has made me want to stick with it longer than I ever have before!
Oh also when I hike I get SO sweaty and the other day I kept feeling drops of water on my shoulders and I was like, is it raining? but no, it was just sweat falling off of my head and onto my shoulders. So hot. Literally. Like, so hot and disgusting.
Also sometimes when I hike I feel like Gimli from Lord of the Rings.
4) Money. And budgeting. Last year I talked about putting myself on a budget here, and then an update on that here. I really struggle with budgeting, and sometimes I'll stay on track really well for a short amount of time, and then I'll just totally collapse and spend spend spend. The past few months were a big struggle because I was traveling a lot, I was in a wedding, I had to renew my car registration and order contacts and buy birthday gifts and ugh ugh ugh. It felt like everything just kind of dumped on me at once and everybody was like WE WANT YOUR MONEY NOW. So, I've been wanting to write about budgeting so I can hold myself accountable because if it's on the internet I can't slack off.
Ok that's all for now. I feel like I've been more transparent in this post than I have in a while and I'm starting to feel uncomfortable.
