Hiatus: A gap or interruption in time, or continuity; a break.
And that’s exactly what happened on Hannatalks. As well as stepping back communicating with others on Twitter, posting on Instagram, updating my blog on Facebook – the whole sh’bang. Was it intentional? Not at all. But do I feel better for it now? 100%.
Throughout August and the beginning of September, (yes I know you know what’s coming up – but HOW ARE WE ALREADY HERE AND 3 MONTHS AWAY FROM CHRISTMAS ADHAHJDHBASDH) no matter how hard I tried to put together a post, I’d get so frustrated and just shut it all down. I felt like Hannatalks was pointless, which led to me thinking what the f*ck am I going to do with my life, which led me to maybe I shouldn’t be working in retail anymore, to why can’t I be brave and do something I actually want to do. Agh. I felt like I was in limbo for a few weeks but right now, I feel more grounded. My main problem is comparing myself to others – in all aspects of life – and I just need to learn to take things at my own pace.
I miss posting 3 times a week and reading lovely comments and talking to other bloggers. Going into working full time might be hard at first but I just need to find a balance. I worked my ass off in August, (hello overtime) so my pay cheque looked fairly healthy this month. I want to treat myself to some Autumn bits cos I LOVE AUTUMN and nothing screams Autumn more than this fur gilet, perfect for layering, and brown suede ankle boots. Riverisland’s open back blouses are my favourite things to wear right now so I want to add this grey print blouse to my collection. I really want to treat myself to the Olympus Pen E-PL7; mainly spurred on by 25% discounts floating about and Katy’s excitement for her now owning the camera. I need to get my paws on it.
What’s on your wish list this month?
