I feel like I’ve been sharing a lot of randomness lately, but honestly–that’s me! This isn’t even the post I planned for today but this is what you get: a quick peek into my brain lately.What is with the weather lately? Isn’t it May? I just want it to feel like spring with the birds chirping and the smell of fresh cut grass. Get it together, Weather. (Tulip picture taken in Istanbul) I‘ve been reading a lot about gaining more Instagram followers lately (the real kind; not the kind you buy. The bought kind are stupid. Are numbers THAT important to you?!). Apparently, I need to choose a “niche” and stay in it. I know this is true because if I post a picture of me running I get a bunch of new followers, but then if I post a picture of coffee–“poof”–the new followers leave because I guess I should only be running. I THINK THIS IS IDIOTIC. It seems I am in the minority here but I like to see more than one dimension of people I follow on Instagram. So, if that means I have less followers then so be it. My “niche” is MY LIFE. Sorry if that doesn’t interest you enough. Jen over at Pretty Little Grub touched on this today in her post as well When did we get so concerned about how pretty our pictures are that we forgot to be ourselves? Why are people so judgy?? I need to pack for Ragnar because it is in ONE WEEK. I have started a spreadsheet, but I feel like it is entirely too much stuff. I need to figure this out. I got some really nice comments on my sports bra post last week & I didn’t even see them until yesterday. Thanks to everyone who read and commented. Even if you don’t agree, I love hearing people’s viewpoints when they are kind and adult about it! Why is it not Friday? I feel like it should be Friday!!
I haven’t told the entire universe this, but I haven’t had any sugar for over two weeks. This is a miracle and I am completely amazed at how less hungry I have been. My house is a disaster and I can’t seem to get motivated to clean it. If you came over, you would be horrified. I need to get it together. I still have a suitcase from our trip in my room–open & full of stuff. We got back April 24. (But don’t worry–any pics I post on IG will be of things looking perfect because that’s how social media works!) I am obviously in an overly sarcastic mood and should probably stop writing what’s on my mind before I make someone angry by talking about politics, religion or health care (ours is great, btw).
ummm…. what’s on your mind today?
