I feel really bad. I try to post twice a week on my blog, but these past few weeks have been hectic for me and Kai. He was in Brazil for a week or so and I was at home, planning for big blessings coming our way, so I'll make sure to announce whenever I have the permission to! I feel like every year starts the same way. People make the same basic New Year's resolutions and it just falls through. I didn't make a resolution. I mean I did, but nothing too major. Just to eat healthy and work out. Basic, I told you. Other than that, it's been nice and relaxing. Seattle has some sunny days here and there. It rains most of the time. A couple of days ago, there was a rainbow right outside my window and I swear if I reached out, I could touch it. I didn't reach out. Instead I kept taking pictures so I could upload on Instagram. Of course. It was 60 degrees the other day! I'm not used to this. Michigan has winter up until June and it starts back up again in September. I'm not exaggerating. It's ridiculous, but I still love you, Michigan. Also, I'm excited that my family is coming in March for me and my mom's birthdays! I can't wait for them to see how Kai and I live and the beautiful lakes we live by.
I've also been trying to lay off social media. I know this has been said a million times, but everyone spends so much time building a "life" on their social medias to the point where they forgot about reality and what they have to deal with in the outside world. We have to grow up and make big, important decisions. Social media likes to suck us in and make us believe in something that's not there. At least that's my take on it. Maybe I'm just rambling, but it's something that I've been thinking about. I want to make sure I'm not spending countless hours looking at other people's lives when everyone knows they don't have it all together. No one does. It's just gotten to the point where social media is being used to show people what you have and see if they have it too. Well, maybe I'm being hypocritical, but it's best to see what you're doing wrong on social media and fix it. People are sharing way too much of their lives. Obviously they have the freedom to do what they want, but don't forget the importance of privacy.
Yeah, I rambled. It's okay though. That's what my blog is for.
Right now, I'm doing my watercolor project that I started today. It was my January goal and today is the 31st... I'm embarrassing. It's because I've been binge watching Jane the Virgin on Netflix. If you guys haven't seen it, WATCH IT. It's hilarious and also very dramatic. It's based off of an actual telenovela, so it goes by the same plot, but with a few differences. The next composer on my calendar that I bought on Etsy is Tchaikovsky and I'm mad I have to wait until December for Bach. I know I already said that, but it's tragic. Bach is my favorite. Bach saved me. I don't know from what, but it just feels like it.
I'm hoping for a good weekend and I'm honestly ready for spring.
Can't wait to jump into Lake Washington soon! Hopefully sooner than later.
