expectations vs. reality

Short, not sweet. This feels unfinished but I can’t seem to get myself to write anymore, maybe because I’m still struggling with it. Perhaps I’ll revisit it one day and complete this. #50thpost

Do you ever kinda just look at someone after they’ve done something and think, “What the heck, man?! Are you serious?”?

Because I certainly have.

0-100 real quick

This’ll probably be lengthy lol

A little over 1.5 months ago, my life did a complete 360°. From being at home almost every day getting out of bed at noon to suddenly being thrust into a 9-5 job at least 4 days a week was a real shock for me. After a few weeks of consideration, it’s obvious things are going to be changing for me once again and I’m ready to close this (very short) chapter of my life. And although it had it’s ups and downs, there are so many things I learned throughout this process. They may seem obvious to many of you but are very new concepts to me!

I wrote this one  last Sunday but never finished it since I’ve been really busy. I figured I might as well publish this one since I haven’t updated in over a week.

Overall, I’m a really awkward person. Awkward around strangers. Awkward around couples. Awkward around friends. Awkward around family. Awkward around everyone, really. Unless you’re a good friend, under the age of 6, or live with me. Then I’m just a horrible, horrible person.

.. I’m really not a people person.

As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, two of my friends and I are attempting to start a small business. It’s called Victorious Vessels and right now the focus is on bottle charm jewelry, but hopefully we can expand in the future. We’ve been planning it since the beginning of the year, slowly making preparations (since each of us had other priorities too) and trying to figure out what does and doesn’t work. It’s been an interesting ride since none of us know anything about how to manage a shop, and as a result there have been a few mistakes here and there. Nothing fatal has happened though and we are not in any crippling debt, thankfully.
