Under Pressure...


My new commute involves lots of time standing on buses. It's not so bad unless its raining, which it has been here for what seems like forever. During these bus trips I can't help but dream of palm trees and sunny days. I've really struggled this week with finding the time (and motivation) to keep up with my regular blog posts. I could blame this on the longer commute but I can't quite get into my old groove and find that by the time I sit down to write about my day it's so late I just want to collapse on the couch.  This busy schedule isn't a bad thing, in fact I like being busy and productive, but I also need to carve out some time to write about my daily happenings or just be able to ramble on in this little space.

I felt pressure to write when all I wanted to do was watch reality TV.  I felt pressure to post and then it all of a sudden it occured to me that the only person putting pressure on myself was me. I was talking about this very subject with a few girls last week so it helps to know that I'm not the only insane person who willingly puts more pressure on herself but I also take comfort in knowing that this will pass.  Once I get my groove back the posts will flow, the pressure will ease and let's hope this rain stops too...

I know! what is with this crazy weather we are having? some days I am in my jumper and then later have to take it off cause it warms up. Very weird.

I'm sure you will be back to your old blogger self soon enough ;)

I know just what you mean about being so busy you just want to collapse on the sofa. It can be tough, can't it. But you'll soon get into a rhythm. And don't get pressured. Although i sometimes feel the same, so perhaps i need to take my own advice!! xx

I know that feeling. And commuting is such a time thief. Remember to give yourself some time to breathe! :)

The weather! I put all my coats and jackets away on the weekend! Didn't think I would need them... But well... Looks like I might need to full them out again... Trying not to, they are all away so neatly.
Once you settle into a new routine with your new living arrangements things will get easier.
I think people will stop reading my blog if I dont post often! But I have noticed everyone is a little slower on the posting over the past few weeks.

you just need to get into the swing of things i imagine?
i start my new job next week and the commute is going to suck but i imagine i'll get used to it eventually (fingers crossed).
it is funny how we put pressure on ourselves though. it's not like you're going to get demanding emails from other bloggers :)
it's nearly the weekend, enjoy!

It's true. Once you stop putting pressure on yourself you think of things to post all the time. And then you just start letting the ideas go and coming to them when there's time and the inclination. It's much better that way.

just so you know, we wouldn't judge you if you started posting about reality tv... we secretly all watch it, too! ;)
