Okay. So. Blogging every day in April did not happen, obviously.
But you know what? That’s okay. Really. I’m okay with that.
The fact is, I’ve had a hard time balancing blogging with everything that’s been going on. And I sit there and I want to blog and then I think about how many other things I need to do and suddenly oh, right, wait, it’s the end of April. Clearly not a lot of blogging has been happening.
What has been happening is a lot of final projects, a lot of adventures with my husband and with friends, enjoying some breaks to play video games, being sick here and there, doing a lot of homework, and preparing for my upcoming trip. I haven’t been lazy, I’ve just been redirecting my time and energy elsewhere, which makes it hard to feel like I’ve failed at all. I’ve done so much, how could I possibly get mad at myself for not taking five minutes to blog every day this month?
I think the lesson I’m taking away from this is that just because I can make the time for absurd projects doesn’t necessarily mean I need to, but also that there will be room for improvement and blogging and things like that in the future. I’ll make time for the things that I need and want to do, and sometimes other things will fall to the side, and that’s okay.
It might seem fruitless to sit here and write a post about how I didn’t do something, yet another blog about how I didn’t get where I wanted to be, but actually… I kind of did get to where I want to be. I survived the month, I had so many small, daily accomplishments to be proud of like getting over 100% on some tests and celebrating a friend’s birthday and baking a kickass banana bread and getting my passport renewed with my new name on it and none of those things made it to individual blog posts, but you know what? I achieved something.
That’s what this project was about. Achieving something. And I did that.
And now, on to the next month. We’re gonna be alright.
