Things That Used To Be Important

5 Years Ago (2012, age 27)
What to write for blog content
Whether or not to go to Vegas with a group of girls I'd (mostly) never met
Going to country night every single Thursday at Houndstooth
Moving apartments
A super dramatic 'friend' and her boy/career/family/everything drama of the moment
Cable TV

10 Years Ago (2007, age 22)
What to wear to graduation
Amassing a giant wardrobe full of Hawkeye gear
Planning a wedding (what on earth was I thinking)
The Super Bowl (Bears. We lost.)
Hand making costumes for every holiday and bar crawl
A draining ex boyfriend
Amassing a DVD collection
And a makeup collection

15 Years Ago (2002, age 17)
Whether to do newspaper or yearbook during senior year
Where to go to college
Trying to make a uniform not look like everyone else around me
Obsessing over what to wear on the weekends because I didn't have said uniform safety blanket
Figuring out how to sneak in without the dogs barking
What to do for winter dance/homecoming/prom/all the semi-formal high school events

All that to say, don't sweat... anything, really.  It's just not going to be that important forever and it'll all work itself out eventually.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  You can also join me on Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest.  In addition to minimalism and organizing, I love all things 'real life' so use the hashtag #notentirelyperfect on social media so I can see your beautifully unstaged life.  On the top of the side bar to your right, you can follow me on Bloglovin or subscribe via e-mail to be alerted to each new post.
