More Hours In A Day: Update

 
As most of you know, last weekend we lost an hour of sleep because we sprang forward! While I am looking forward to it being lighter later, I was not thrilled to lose an hour of sleep. I want to apologize for not posting much since Sweetheart Series ended, but I just wish there were more hours in a day! But I just wanted to write this post to update you guys on the blog and my life and tell you what is coming up. Also, since it has been over 2 months since my resolutions post, I thought I would do a quick update to let you all know what has been up with those! So this really has nothing to do with fashion, but a few of my faithful readers might be interested so I am going to share.

Pinterest, Social Bliss, and Polyvore?

If you follow me on any of these sites, you will know that I have been letting them go recently too. I just don't have a lot of time with school and working and everything else in life to spend a lot of time on any of them. My spring break is in a week though, and I am planning to give each of these a little TLC during it. 

Comments?!
One bad blogger habit of mine is not replying to comments or not commenting on other posts I read. It is such a simple thing that I am trying to remember to do more recently! 

Blog Goal Failures
  •  I have definitely gotten a great start on gaining new followers and getting more pageviews, so thanks for that! 
  • I successfully hosted my first giveaway! 
  • More DIY posts? One is coming up very soon! 
  • Signature? Check! 
  • blog button, catagories, newsletter, survey, update media kit, and gifs? Not so much, but give me time ;)
  • Blog twice per week? Erm... no. But I have done a pretty good job keeping up! It's not like I left for more than a week at a time or so.    
 Personal Goal Failures? 
  • Keep my room cleaner and more organized? Yes! Surprisingly this has become pretty easy for me! Now just to tackle the rest of my house :P 
  •  Get better grades? Not so much... they have stayed about the same. But I still have time! 
  • Actual job? Not yet, but I have still been working non-consistently so I have a little income. 
  •  Keep an open mind? So far so good! 
  • Exercise daily? Well... I was going good at first, then started to slack a little. Then a few weeks ago I got the flu and I obviously couldn't keep going then. Now that I am feeling better I am getting back into it though! 
  • Car? Yes! Finally have my own car and can drive wherever whenever I want to! Which makes taking outfit pictures outside easier! 
  • Quiet time for 15 minutes? Some days, yes. Most days, no. 
  • Shorter showers? Um... no. 
  • Watch less pointless TV? Yes! And if I do want to watch a show I like, I will do it while replying to comments or cleaning up or even doing my hair. Multi-tasking is amazing! 
  • 1 Random Act of Kindness per day? Most days I have been fairly good at this! 
  • Play piano? Not yet, but hopefully over the summer!
