March Thoughts

February was a rough month for me. Overall, I felt really burned out when it came to creating any sort of content, whether that be blog posts, Instagram pictures, or YouTube videos. I took a break last week, hoping it would allow me to destress and come into March feeling productive and energized. 

a quote my dad & I have been saying a lot - I felt like it applied here!!

Sadly, that was not the case. I'm entering this week feeling the same way I felt all of February - discouraged. I really try to not let the numbers and algorithms get to me and determine my worth, but it's so hard to see my follower count declining every day knowing that there's nothing I can do about it; it's just the way Instagram works now. Fran touched on this recently, and it was reassuring to know that I'm not the only one feeling this way!

This time of year is always crazy busy. My schedule is jam-packed between soccer, extracurriculars, and homework, and when you factor in my sisters' schedules, it's almost impossible for my family to have any free time. This makes it next to impossible to go take pictures, especially considering that I can't drive yet. (I did just pass my learner's permit test, though!!)

My life has been all sorts of stressful lately - my grades aren't where I want them to be, I feel a constant need to go take blog pictures, I have something after school every day, I'm putting a lot of pressure on myself to do well in soccer... the list goes on. Also, this past weekend has been all sorts of fun! The SIM card in my phone somehow got lost, stolen, or just disappeared? (I don't know how phone technology works) My glasses broke this morning, I lost my soccer cleats (but then I found them, thankfully), and my teacher put my math test grade in and it was not what I had hoped it would be.

I'm not telling you this to make excuses for why I haven't been active. I'm telling you this in hopes that it motivates me to work harder and create more content, because I honestly love doing that, even if I don't always prioritize it. I also hope that if you're a blogger and you relate to this, it helps you find motivation too! Spring Break is next week, and a whole week off from school is just what I need. I'm not sure what my plans are yet, but hopefully I can create some fun content for y'all!

As always, thank you for supporting! :)
