I'M SORRY OK?????

I'm sorry I haven't been updating lately. I could blame it on the stress and the hectic nature of the new semester, but I've decided to leave all excuses aside and simply face the facts.

I suck at blogging.

In the time since my last post, I have lost three followers. THREE!


Anyway, I've decided to post this blog to:
  1. Ensure you all that I am still alive.
  2. Issue my thanks for those of you who are still sticking around. I am grateful for all of you.
Speaking of gratitude, it's been a while since I've posted about things that I am grateful for, and one of the key essentials to living a happy life is to constantly count your blessings.

So here we are, ten things that I am especially grateful for:
  1. My job. I love everything about it.
  2. My awesome boyfriend. I seriously lucked out with this guy.
  3. My supportive parents. I love them to pieces.
  4. My good health. We are such fragile beings, and we really are so fortunate to be alive.
  5. My apartment. It may be expensive, but it's home.
  6. My education. It may be expensive, but it gets me to where I need to be. 
  7. My friends, both back home, and here. I would be so awkward without them.
  8. Technology. Most days. 
  9. LITERATURE. Where would we be without it???
  10. My dog back home. I miss him so much, but he makes my parents really happy. 
This is Mika. He's a boy, and I'm pretty sure he's gay too. The love of my life is a gay mutt. Deal with it.

So there you have it, the ten things I woke up feeling grateful for this morning. Remember, 

.

I hope you all have a wonderful, fun, SAFE, and exciting Superbowl Sunday. 
I'm not going to tell you who I'm rooting for but...

  1. Blogging takes up time. Don't feel bad about not having spare time to blog. And just because you don't update every week doesn't make you a bad Blogger...it just makes you a busy one. :) Great post BTW.

    1. No kidding, I really am a busy blogger, but I think the good bloggers are the ones like yourself who manage to find the time to blog even though their posts clearly indicate that there is SO much going on in their lives! Thank you for your support, I always appreciate it. :)

  2. Hey hun!! Glad to see you're still here! :)

    Don't feel too put out by the drop in followers; you should be blogging for yourself and if you are too busy to write, then that's just how it is. I for one do miss your posts! ^^

  4. Blog on your own terms/schedule. If someone doesn't like it, well they weren't worth it to begin with. :)
