Failed October Goals

Oh hai.

A while back you might notice a post I had written which had some goals I want to achieve personally. (You can find that post here). Now, I don't know about you, but when you get sick, achieving goals is something that is totally at the back of my mind. I steered clear from my blog for a while and totally forget about them until recently when I was nosing through my writing and found them again. The list of goals included:

  • Plan blog posts in advance, write down any ideas I get that I want to feature on this blog.
  • My little slice of the internet is in dire need of a re-design. I've had the same look and feel for the past two years and feel like it's time for a change. Here's hoping that happens in the new year.
  • Keep growing out my hair. My bangs are now at the "Why am I doing this" Stage. At least I can hide them with a hat.. Right?.
  • Touch up my liquid eyeliner skills.
  • Drink more water.
  • Relax - As if I'm not doing that enough already.

Now, looking at this list, I'm already thinking nope, I haven't kept to any of these. But then again, whithout realising I'm doing it, I've kept to some. So without further ado;

  • Plan blog posts in advance, write down any ideas I get that I want to feature on this blog. Ha! I mean, do people even do this? Planned blog posts so far: 0
  • My little slice of the internet is in dire need of a re-design. I've had the same look and feel for the past two years and feel like it's time for a change. Here's hoping that happens in the new year. Still working on it - I sit and stare at my monitor sometimes with some designs then turn everything off. Progress?
  • Keep growing out my hair. My bangs are now at the "Why am I doing this" Stage. At least I can hide them with a hat.. Right?. They were doing my head in, so I chopped them off, rest in pieces. 
  • Touch up my liquid eyeliner skills. I don't need to touch up my skills, I'm a fucking badass at winged eyeliner already. Winged eyeliner so sharp, I could kill a man.
  • Drink more water. Yay! Finally a goal I achieved! 
  • Relax - As if I'm not doing that enough already. I guess I did enough of that when I was sick so yay?
So that's an update and a half. I was going to set myself more goals then thought to myself, y'know what? Fuck it I'm taking life as it comes. 

Let's see what happens,


Update

Oh hai.
I'm sort of reluctant to write this update since I haven't written on here in so long, but the longer I leave it the harder it'll be to get back in the jist of things; and after going to bed and waking up at a decent time for once, and waking up feeling like an actual person is a pretty good feeling, so why not document it?

Up, dressed, face on, all before mid day!? I've had two coffees and breakfast!? Who is this person and what have you done with Laura?

Asside from feeling shit mentally, I've also been sick physically. I developed a cold around the beginning of November, about a week before I was due to get my flu jab, which is bloody typical because guess what my cold developed into? Yup, thats right, the flu. Thanks body, I guess. Asside feeling sorry for myself for getting the flu, I also developed bacterial conjunctivitis (Apperently this is a thing, if your body already knows you're ill, it just decides to throw more shit at you, which is brill) this was just the icing on top of the shit cake. So whilst battling with some stuff mentally, which I wont go into for your own sanity, I was also battling feeling like shit physically. Ever have those days where you just feel like giving up? That was literally the whole of November for me. Today is the only day I have woken up and not felt like shit. My mind feels clear for once, I don't feel like crap now that my illness is sorting itself out, it's like my body has given me an early Christmas present of sorting itself out. 

Part of me is sort of resenting myself feeling like this - I fear tomorrow I'll wake up and everything will be shit again, but I keep telling myself why fear tomorrow when I can live in the now? I'm alive, I've been productive within my personall life, I'm doing the best I can.

So there's that little update for ya. Also super excited for Christmas, is that sad? Makes a change to be excited for something. 

Here's to more blog posts right?

Coffee Time

Todays Coffee:
Vanilla flat white courtesty of Costa, and free because of the Wuntu app, yay! There's nothing better than free coffee so thank you very much Three.


What today has consisted of: 
Got out of bed at 2PM today with a sore throat and blocked nose. Joys of the colder season, I go all year with not getting ill once then BAM! I'm a breeding ground for germs. Urgh. I feel so unproductive, I have literally done nothing all day. It's nice to give myself a 'break' but the only things I have really done today was get out of bed, showered, painted my face and went out to get cat good. Sound fun? Eh. The only good thing out of today was the free coffee I got thanks to the wuntu app on my phone, woohoo! Oh, did I mention I got free pizza too? Because that was a thing too now apparently, although I managed to screw up my order and put it through four times by accident because the code wouldn't go through properly and the guy who was serving me just gave up and told me to just take the pizza..

Things that have made me happy today: 
Free coffee. Free pizza.


Look at the chickeny, cheesy goodness, urgh.

Things that have made me sad today: 
The lady who made my sandwhich in Subway put way too much mayo on my sandwhich and that did make me really sad. I also ordered my mums birthday present which should be here in six days. Her birthday is in four. Fucking typical.

Currently listening to:

Not really an interesting post today but thought I'd update you guys anyway on how lazy my day was.

My October Goals

Oh hai,

Happy October! I can't believe how quickly September has gone. It feels like only a couple of days ago I was turning 23, but I couldn't be happier as we roll into my favourite season, Autumn. After waking up on a rather sad looking Monday, it looks like sweater season is here and ready to stay. I'm excited for a new month to start, leaving the past in the past and so on. I've found a new love for my blog again with more inspiration than ever to write, and I've been super productive in my home life when I can be. I'd like to continue on like this throughout the month and enjoy as many seasonal festivities as possible.
