First, blogging things. I am still in the midst of moving over to self-hosted. Right now I am waiting for my domain to be released, which I can thank Cora for making that more clear to me. This tech stuff is like another language to me! I am fighting through the set backs, because I’m excited for the opportunities that expanding my blog may bring. To help me work through this process, I created an anonymous reader survey I’d love for you to complete. It’s only five short questions. (Click here!) I’m wanting to do a Q&A post soon, so one of the items on the survey is place to write a question you may have for me. Although The Domestikated Life is a personal blog, I want it to be meaningful for others too. So if you could take just a few minutes to complete the survey, I’d greatly appreciate it!
Thank you all for your congratulations! I’m still riding the happiness train of graduation! Terry got me my very favorite dessert, an ice cream cake, to celebrate! It was too delicious for words. I’m not a big icing person, but the icing on this cakes was finger licking good!
On an unrelated note, I have to say, I feel like I am in a weird place right now. I haven’t quite fell into a routine yet since school ended. I still feel like I am busy and don’t have much time, but I’ve also being doing things like taking naps, reading for pleasure, sleeping in, and watching movies on week nights. I guess I can’t say I’m all that busy.
I think it’s hard to pull myself out of that constant of “what am I supposed to be doing right now?” that goes along with being in school. When I was in classes, I’d often tell myself “I’ll do that later when I find time.” I’m still saying that and now I actually have time. I think my brain is a little worn down… definitely have the “brain fog” going on. I think I’ll just have to give it some time to recuperate. More naps?
I’ve been spending a lot of time outdoors, meeting my friends for runs and eating meals on the porch with Terry. I’m actually sitting outside right now working on this post! Warm weather is my favorite and I feel like my mood is 100% better.
^Failed vegetable lasagna. At least it tasted good!
Also I really like my job so far. The cupcakery is super cute and I like getting to see a variety of customers throughout the day. Even though I only speak to most of them for less than a minute, I love being able to engage with so many different people. Working with people on a daily basis is really important to me. I don’t think I could work a job where I stayed behind a screen or in an office all day.
Other summer activities include planning for a short anniversary trip with Terry. If anyone knows of any “must dos” in Charleston, let me know. We’ve been a hundred times, but I know there is still plenty we haven’t done yet.
That’s all for today. I’ll see you tomorrow with some yummy eats. Don’t forget to please do the reader survey! ❤
Are you in summer mode yet? Do you have trouble falling into new routines?
