it's true - almost 3 years here in this little space. you'll see in the archives that my first post is from june 2012, but it was actually may. i deleted it. it was about clothes i think. (probably a wish list like 'hey mom, i need this dress' because if your mother won't read your blog, who will? p.s. hi mom.) and there's been many, many posts since. on a variety of topics, sometimes even 5 days a week.
not that all those posts are marvelous little writing gems, but you'd still think i'd run out of things to say in 3 years. some days, it does feel that way. but most days, i can find it in me to ramble. ramble in ways people actually want to pay attention to, not always, but ramble nonetheless. to quote my friend eleni, who doesn't trust quiet people, in response to my claim 'but i'm quiet,' told me "okay, but.... no."
apparently, she's not wrong.
even so, 5 days a week is definitely not happening around here anymore, in case you haven't noticed. even if i have enough to say, i just can't keep up the pace consistently. more work responsibilities, more life responsibilities, it's tough. tough to give my of-course-always-totally-hilarious post ideas the attention they deserve. so i've definitely cut back a lot. now don't start thinking that i want to cut back completely - i don't. i just want to change it up a little. yes, yes, i know, i hate change. but it won't be a monumental change. just going to attempt some longer posts just a little less often. say one or two (maybe 3 but let's not get crazy) posts per week. i figure if i can't keep up with reading someone else's blog 4 or 5 days a week, certainly no one can keep up with mine either.
i'll still talk about all my favorite topics (generally summed up as 'the laughably absurd tasks of adulting'; you know, organizing, finances, relationships, general nonsense and the occasional cupcake made out of booze.) you'll just notice some changes to the menu bar up top and some longer posts, and my name in your reader popping up less often.
all this to say, i have no plans on going anywhere and hopefully you don't either. just going to try to change up the format a little. longer posts, more substance, less often. and an infinite number of hawkeye photos, because,
