Every week, we’re participating in #totalhonestytuesday, sharing the things we’d usually keep off of social media, and giving a little more insight into our real (and very un-perfect) lives. Hopefully, in doing this, we can all feel a little less pressure to appear a certain way online, and remember that everyone around us is much more than just the highlight reel we normally see.
#totalhonestytuesday after putting together today's TFD post about decluttering, I decided to take an actual step toward implementing it in my own life. Sometimes, I feel v hypocritical for researching stuff that I never actually follow through on. NO MORE! I went around and collected five (5) piles of odds and ends that were stacked in various corners of the living room. I'm leaving them in the middle of the floor, so I actually have to deal with them and can't shove them away/ignore them again 😁😁😁

#totalhonestytuesday I miss my boyfriend, ok? We moved here for his job, but his job means he's away more than he's home. Yesterday I woke up too early, pulled out the citrus juicer and the fancy straws he surprised me with a while ago, and had a delicious glass of orange juice. Remembering the little thoughtful things like that make the days a little less lonely when he's gone. 🍊

#totalhonestytuesday TFW your staying-in-Spain-legally papers expire in 3 weeks and you can't start the lengthy renewal process until the government sends you your new work contract, which they still haven't done 🙃🙃🙃 I also need to move sometime in June, possibly several hours away and without a car, but I don't know where yet (again, won't find out until I get that damn contract). Lots of uncertainty in expat la la land right now.

I usually post about when I have great success running, but I don't ever share days like today. Days where my run goes horribly; days where I don't eat enough and almost pass out at the grocery store; days that I don't feel like a runner at all. Not every run is Instagram-worthy, in fact, most of them aren't. I'm putting today in the "fall 100 times, get up 101 times" column. #totalhonestytuesday

#totalhonestytuesday: I finally made it to the last place on my NYC food bucket list, in my last few days here. I counted this morning, and I've been in New York for 51 days now. That's a lot of days, and I'm so grateful that I got to come out and work with the best people, and see the family and friends that I always wish I had more time with. Being here has had so many ups and great moments, but it was also a harsh reminder that I will never be very good at existing in NYC. Nor will I ever be good at living out of a suitcase for this long, because I'm not chic enough for this city anyway, and especially not with a limited supply of shoes. Nonetheless, I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to hop around to different places for work. And I'm not going to lie, NYC has treated me very well — especially the ice cream selection.

Taking part in #totalhonestytuesday from @thefinancialdiet to point out how far behind I am on this yearlong cross stitch project, which features a new country every month. I finally finished February and just started March's this weekend. I still need to download May's section 😥

#totalhonestytuesday I've been working on my ep for several months now and it still hasn't been finished. Even though I've had these songs for over a year, only recently have I begun putting together the pieces for the full band versions going on the record. My perfectionism has made it a very lengthy process (amongst other things). Despite this, I'm making sure this ep sees the light of day. #thestatusofthings will be released this fall. 4 original tracks by yours truly. Stay posted.

I'm so bored of Instagram right now. All the pictures I take don't look how I want them to; captions and hashtags are too hard to make #witty and #interesting; then the most annoying thing, my editing apps keep crashing mid edit. I try to post things but it's just a lot of effort for no real reason. Anyway, here's my hydrangea. 🌸🌿🌸 #alsowhatisthepoint? #disenchantedbysocialmedia #totalhonestytuesday
