So, as I’m sure anyone who ever comes on and pokes around on my blog knows, I have been MIA for a long long while. I completed my undergraduate degree about a year ago, and had lots of grand intentions that I would start blogging like a crazy woman since I was certainly doing more cooking with my additional time. But, as with many things, good intentions don’t always equate to action. Shortly after graduating I was given a promotion at work and took on a large number of additional responsibilities, and then I started graduate school in the Fall. So, these days I’m a pretty busy lady. BUT- I have decided that it is time to prioritize things that I enjoy! It’s just hard to find motivation for creative outlets when you get home after a long day at work, do some reading for school, work on a paper, cook dinner for your family, etc. Sometimes all you want to do is veg out. As time has gone on however, I’m finding that all the vegging I have done just makes me feel lazy, regardless how well-deserved it is. I realized that I am the kind of person who, if I truly want to feel happy and satisfied with my day, week, or month I need to do something that feels productive.
