I have switched things up a bit and made A Few Things an every other weekend deal. With school in full swing, this makes my life just a little bit easier. My calendar is so full that it won't even show every event without opening up a specific day and scanning hour by hour tasks. That's craziness.
I was texting a friend and had the realization that I have a dry, playfully sarcastic sense of humor, and I'm not sure it always translates via text message. Do you ever have that problem? You send a message, and you know that it would have been funny in person, but, on the screen it lacks a certain pizazz.
I discovered how to property execute The Pompadour. It is so stinking simple, yet, I could never do it correctly before. That is embarrassing. Thank you for helping me Emily, I was so lost without you!
As I have mentioned one or two or ten times, I am going to Hawaii. I'm only mildly excited about this..
Hawaii is on my bucket list, and now I can cross it off. Since life will be all beachy for ten days, I decided that I needed special shoes. More than a flip flop, less than a sneaker. Somehow I ended up at a Crocs store. I became besties with the employees ( You were no help, Josh! I blame all of this on you), and walked out of the store with a bright green bag housing my very own pair of Crocs. If that's not pure sacrilege, I don't know what is.
Kelly Slater, the gem behind Walkin' On Sunshine, is adorable and bubbly. I had the pleasure of swapping buttons with her in the recent past. Every time I login and see her button, it brightens up my day! Her blog is bright and happy and oh so worth a visit!
I finally took the plunge and put together a media kit! Media kits are basically resumes and they need to be compact and highlight the most relevant and timely information. I probably spent four hours agonizing over it, but, I finished it. I don't know about you, but, I always get nervous taking new steps in the blog world. You're already putting yourself out there to potentially be rejected. Each new step is exciting and a little terrifying. It is one hundred percent worth it though!
Those are my few things for this weekend. What about you? Did you discover something new about yourself, find a little piece of blog heaven, or take the plunge and put yourself out there?
What are your few things?
