One of the many times my mouth has gotten me in trouble.
I knew today was going to be an “interesting” day from the beginning, from the moment I saw one of our gazillion ton dies out in the middle of the five line road, broken into pieces, not even a mile away from work. Big wigs from one of the main companies that we do business with were here, walking around, getting in the way, someone had shoved a million things into the tool crib where you couldn’t even put your foot down without stepping on something, and of course me bumping my arm on the lift and having to fill out an incident report because my supervisor was still here. And that is just the first few hours. Yep, great day. I know I complain about my job a lot, and I guess you’re probably wondering “Hannah, if you hate your job so much, why did you take it? Why don’t you do something else?” Well, number one, the job market sucks right now. If I quit and go somewhere else, either I will have to take a $4 an hour pay cut, or take a $3 an hour pay cut and I’m 30 minute commute will turn into a 45 minute to an hour commute. “Why don’t you apply for a different position?” Nothing is available and you have to be at the same position for 6 months before you are able to apply for a position. Barely making to 3 months right now.“So why did you take the job?” That’s a good question. Guess it’s time I should explain how I ended up in the white box.
So today is the day. I have come to a decision between going back fully to Wix, or to move forward with WordPress. Though I was going to give each a full month before making a choice, it’s starting to become daunting to try and keep up with both sites at the same time. So without further ado, the winner is…
A week ago yesterday, I put my first blog post on Wix. A week ago today, I made my WordPress account and put my first two post that were originally on Wix on my WordPress blog. Currently my WordPress blog has had 70 views, 29 visitors, and 4 subscribers. I’m surprised at that. I’m surprised that I have any views or even subscribes. Those numbers may be low to most of you, but for me it’s way more than I expected. Of course my Wix blog is not doing as great because a) it doesn’t have the community like WordPress does, and b) my link to my blog is still messed up, so even if you accidentally clicked on one of my links to get there you still wouldn’t see it. But that is beside the point. The point is for something that I started randomly, it is going better that I thought it would so I want to thank the ones who have been reading. Whether you landed on a post on purpose or it was a happy accident, thank you still. So, as this first week ended, I came up with some goals that I would like to reach by the end of my first month blogging: clicky clicky for more
For the first time in a while, I actually had things to do during the weekend besides getting groceries and catching up on laundry and videos games. I did my first 5k, and it was also my mother’s birthday. Now first off, I’m not big on exercise just for fun, even though I have a gym membership that I really need to use. What makes this 5k different is it was a color run. Color Vibe to be precise. clicky clicky for more
So I’m not sure what I’m going to be doing here. Not sure if I will publish this (if anyone wants to read any of it at all) or it will be a diary of some sort. Not sure if I will even stick with it and continually post or if this is a one time thing. BUT, I’m doing it now so I guess it counts for something. clicky clicky for more
One moment can change everything. One smile can sow a seed into something greater. Nurture it, and it will grow into something more beautiful than you can even imagine.
But, one moment can change everything. A smile can turn into a look of disdain. As that seed is sown, it feeds the demons within ourselves, pulling us away until we finally let go. And in that moment, what was once a garden has now become a graveyard.
Why does it seem like when you’re sad you want to listen to sad songs? Does it even help? Does it make it worse? I don’t really know the answer, but I decided to show you a little more and what better way through music. These 10 songs are not the only ones I’ve had on repeat, but they show you a glimpse of what I’ve been going through without coming out and saying it. Maybe you will find a new song you’ve never heard of, or maybe you know all of them. Either way, here it is.

It’s been almost 3 months since I have posted here, and a lot has happened. I don’t want to get into too many details about it all, but I figured I would kind of update y’all on why I haven’t been active for a while.
As I start going through the process of starting… to start blogging…again?, I’ve been looking for some ideas to kick start things. One of the things I came across was Megan Has OCD‘s post with 25 get to know me questions. Since I’m still new to it all, and the blogging world doesn’t know much about me, I figured this would be a good post to add to my upcoming randomness. And since I made it to having 25 posts, I figured what better than to have 25 questions on my 25th post. So here we go.
Being on YouTube or Facebook is a dangerous thing. Getting on for just for a few minutes can turn into hours wasted from being sucked in by cat videos and pranks. This always happens to me, and sometimes I’ll watch the same video over and over.
With my birthday a month away, I’ve been thinking about how my life as gone so far. Think about the experiences I’ve had, good and bad. The achievements, and mistakes. Moments that I would love relive or redo.
Though my life could be so much worse than it its, I’m still not at a point where I’m content with where I am or where I’ve been. So in light of that I’ve decided to make a list of goals I would like to achieve within the next five years. Some are life long dreams, some are necessary for health and happiness. Let’s get to it.
