#HASHTAGHUMPDAY | Where I'm still Sucking at Blogging

Once again I managed to not blog AT ALL or comment whatsoever for a full week. I feel extremely guilty about it, but I don't regret it. I'm still adjusting to this new work life. And yes, I'm very aware I've used that excuse for 5 ish weeks now. It's pathetic. But anyways....

Before we get into it, let me remind you you have a plethora of link ups to confess your face off to every Wednesday. #Hashtaghumpday with my partner in crime Lauren and I of course, Alanna for confessions as well as Plucky in Love, and then Kathy and Nadine! So much humpity-hump-day love!  

#Hashtaghumpday @ Life with Lolo

 First a little business. Here’s the scoop:
  • Each Wednesday create a post about what’s going on in your life and #hashtag each item or story. See an example HERE. Be as creative as you want! 
  • Grab the button and include it in your post
  •  Link up so we can all #creep on you and find out what’s new/funny/awesome /shitty in your life.
  • Comment on at least one other blogger’s post from the link up (someone you don’t already know!) if there even is anyone who links up…
  •  Share on all your social sites with #hashtaghumpday
  • Have fun! #hashtagtheshitoutofeverything #whocaresifitsarealhashtag


Instead of sitting down to write this post, I designed and formatted the entire newsletter for my sorority (PR Adviser duties) and it was quite enjoyable #helpingandfun #adviseringsohard

Speaking of the sorority, I'm heading up to Moscow in April to celebrate my chapter's 100th birthday! It's a huge milestone to be around that long at a university and I can't wait to celebrate with my sisters. The downside is I had to take a day unpaid off #becauseimsonew #noPTOyet

As far as work, let me see if I can describe how it feels at the moment. Someone filled up a tank full of projects all due by the end of March, all that are of huge importance, and then used my newness to bind my arms and legs and threw me in the tank to drown. Yep, that's how it feels #extrememelyoverwhelmed #thusnoblogging

Despite the fact that I'm quite literally over my head right now, I don't mean to complain. I still think my job is the coolest job ever! Other than this damn time change ordeal, I've actually been excited to get up and go to work every day, which is huge #lovewhatyoudo

And since my brain is completely fried after 3 hours of laying out the newsletter, I'm going to leave it at that. And with it, I'll toss a penny in the well with the wish I can finally, somehow, manage to get back to this space more often!

  1. The cartoon is hilarious. I always felt that way at a new job. People love to take advantage of your newness! But you will get a routine down soon!

  2. That newsletter looks great!!!

  3. Moscow, how fun!!! I am sure that you feel overwhelmed at the new job but I think we all feel like that when we first start. Love that you are actually excited to get up and go in! That feeling cant be bought!!!

  4. Glad you are hanging in there! It will get better. How is your Whole30 lifestyle going? Mine is a little pathetic at the moment but still hanging on!

  5. Oh my gosh, that comic! I'm glad you're still loving your job- even with all the craziness! The newsletter looks awesome!

  6. Up to Moscow, as in Russia? I ask because we have an overnight there when we're coming back from Germany and I'm so unbearably excited. #itsthesmallthings

  7. The newsletter looks great. I am still involved with my sorority too and it is so rewarding. Have fun heading back to campus!

  8. I hope you can adjust soon! Your new job is lucky to have you! I miss your posts :) happy Wednesday!!!

  9. One day you'll come back to us. Ha! Hope you get settled real quicklike! :)

  10. oh, girl....the project drowning -- i hear that. it's been like that for me ERRDAY since i started in NOvember!! hope things ease up for you soon.

  11. S o so so sad and sorry that you're drowning. I know that means they trust you and I know you can do it. Take your time and find those stress-free moments

  12. My best girlfriend and I were talking earlier this week about work/life balance. It ain't easy. I hope you just feeling a little more balanced very soon!

  13. It's so tough to find time for blogging. After work I totally have no energy and half force myself to get a post out or comment/respond to emails. You'll find your groove soon with work and blogging. How fun about going to Moscow for that milestone!

  14. I didn't know you were an advisor for your sorority! I always debated doing that for my alma mater but never had the time to commit.
