Not going to lie, September was a little bit stressful. I normally don’t admit to being stressed, but I think it was clear this month to the people around me, that I was having a rough time. I was dealing with a lot of change (which I hate) and I was just upset over everything that was going on. I had left my job of four years and it was hard to say goodbye to something that meant so much to me. I didn’t think I would ever be happy working anywhere else and that really bothered me.
This month I started two new jobs. I was very excited but shortly after starting, I realized I did not enjoy one of them. I really don’t want to get too much into it, but basically now, I work in a daycare/preschool and I love it. I play with cute babies all day and its so much fun. The people there are super friendly and I have felt so welcomed since starting. I feel like I’m finally back into a normal, everyday routine and it feels good. Long story short, do what makes you happy. People may try to tell you to just “deal with it” but at the end of the day, you are the only one that has to live with your decisions and if you have the power to change something, change it. It really is not worth all the stress.
Honestly, the rest of my month was great. I turned twenty and I started my THIRD year of college. I honestly can’t believe I am a junior already. I think most of my stress came from not knowing what was going on with my job and just general fear of the “unknown” as I turn another year older and get one step closer to graduating college (sorry…I’m dramatic). I guess looking back now, I probably shouldn’t have been so worried about everything that was going on. I truly believe that things always work themselves out and that what is meant to be, will be.
SO…now on to the good stuff.
One of the MOST exciting things I did this month was go SELF HOSTED. Yes. I am officially colleendenise.com and I couldn’t be more excited. Please be patient, while I still figure things out. I might be making a couple more changes in the next couple of weeks, so the overall look may change a little. Blogging started off as just a hobby for me. It was something I did to escape reality, I guess you can say. It has brought me nothing but happiness. Cheesy, I know, but Its true. Blogging has been my creative outlet and I wanted to be able to do more with my design and layout so I decided to buy a theme from pipdig and go self hosted. I am super excited to start taking my blog in a more serious direction and its my goal to show everyone how passionate I am about blogging through my posts.
I also have a little fun and quick announcement and that is….. THAT I AM DOING BLOGTOBER. Okay, I am really, REALLY going to try to post every single day. I have been working on a bunch of fall related posts since this is my absolute favorite time of the year. If you guys have any fall type posts you would like to see, let me know!
Thats really it for now! Goodbye September, hello October. I have nothing but high hopes for this month and am so excited to see everything that it will bring!
