An Artsy March Roundup

So, March is over!

To be honest, I wanted to start this post with some kind of alliteration, like 'March was a month of motivation!" but that would be straight up lie.

March was a struggle. 




Let's just say that I did not spend very much time sleeping. Or blogging. But the sleeping part was the biggest problem. I was tired and stressed and lacking motivation, and it just felt like the longest month ever.

But let's talk about the good things, shall we?
  •  I turned nineteen! (Sheesh). Also, my birthday was on my last day of class before spring break so I got to celebrate with my friends at school (we went to an Italian restaurant and it was lovely), and my family at home. 
  • It was one of the loveliest springs I've experienced weather-wise (I'm from Maine, so spring doesn't typically happen until mid-April)  
  • I saw Beauty and The Beast. Twice. 
  • The end is near! Just about a month left before I wrap up my first year of college. This has got me feeling reflective and, well, happy. It's been a great and memorable year. 

I have a single blogging goal for April, and that is.... drumroll....

To post more regularly!! 

I'm pretty pleased that, in the long run, I've maintained a one-post-per-week thing this year. I'm pretty proud of myself for that because for a while even that was daunting. But I've got big goals for this summer blog-wise because I'll (hopefully?) have more free time, so I'm going to try to start slowly working towards creating more content on the regular. Plus, I just have a lot of ideas. I often feel like, when only doing one post per week, a lot of my ideas don't ever get to see the light of day.

So, I'd like to start posting twice a week. But we'll see what happens.

How has your month been, blogging friends? Has the spring weather reached you yet? Are you hyped for April showers and May flowers? Let me know in the comments.

  2. I find that generally since the beginning of this year to be a struggle LOL. The weather especially has been all types of funky and truly has been messing around with many moods. Spring is about new beginnings though so let's hope for the best! Btw, happy belated birthday girl!! <3

  4. I hope April will be more amazing then March. I can relate, I feel March wasn't the best month for me either. Way to much stress, hopefully April will be more fun :) http://www.bauchlefashion.com/2017/04/7-signs-your-beauty-addict.html
