Plans for the Blog

I have no excuse.

Let’s recap life at the moment: school is done, I’m working more, quarantine sucks the life out of you, and I’ve been having a lot of mental cracks.

And yet, I can’t seem to write blog posts!

I know, in general, people will say ‘don’t be so hard on yourself’, ‘give yourself room to relax’, and ‘forgive yourself’. And that’s all true. Be kind to yourself, forgive yourself, yes. But there is a time when I’m just making excuses when there really isn’t one.

So!

I’m gonna make myself more responsible by putting my schedule out and making some solid plans for the blog.

The schedule I’ve set that I’d like to continue with is every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 9am PST. Now you know, and feel free to yell at me if I miss one.

As for plans of future posts, I’ll be starting a segment called Book versus Movie, I’ll continue my quotes collection, every month will bring bullet journal spreads, by popular demand I’ll talk about my journey to celebrating Pride as an abrosexual, and a lot more!

Now that I have a plan, I need to deliver. I completely recognize that sometimes things happen. But I should at least let you guys know before falling off the grid for weeks.

Be kind to yourself, but be responsible for yourself too.

I’ll see you Monday!

How the Crew Feel About Isolation

Assistant Edgar: “I am still as busy as ever, with working from home and keeping the papers maintained. Not much has changed here, other than Miss Alexandra not leaving the house.”

Caretaker Willow: “is awful! people need interaction and hugs and miss alexandra a-not getting that! and others are hurting and is a painful time! please be safe!”

Sophie: “…this isn’t normal?” *she was born during the COVID-19 outbreak*

I am fully aware that I have not written to you since July of last year.

Miss Alexandra has kept me quite busy throughout her first semester, and promises to do so for her current semester.

She had asked me to write today as she has received some very stressful news regarding her schoolwork that she has to fix as soon as she can. She informed me she would let you know more about it in a future post.

When you receive news that gives you unnecessary stress, take time to help yourself. Evaluate what you need to do and make a plan. But always make sure you follow through.

Sincerely,

Assistant Edgar

A Slow Start to the New Year

Does anyone else find life kind of dragging its feet for this new year?

Coming into 2020, I wanted to head straight into the year guns blazing, ready to go head butt it into submission. It didn’t turn out that way when I got severe influenza and some other plans turned on their heads.

Well.

I just wanted you to know that it’s okay to have a slow start. Remember, the tortoise ended up winning.

What you do not do it quit when it’s not going fast enough. Go the speed you can, knowing you’re still making strides toward the finish line.

I am hoping I pick up my feet a little, but I’m excited to keep going.

Hugs

Alexandra

And We’re Back

Woah, my last post was from 18 December last year (so, like, two weeks ago). Either way, where the hell have I been?

I honestly didn’t mean to leave you all hanging like that, but I was dealing with holidays (Hanukkah, Christmas, New Years, yeah) and I got a VERY bad case of influenza. I was uber sick and juggling responsibilities.

Anyway, happy 2020!

Personally, I don’t do resolutions, but I have yearly goals (and no I don’t believe they are the same thing). But if you do have resolutions, I’m sending good vibes that you may work hard and achieve.

I would really like to actually stay on schedule for the year. With that said, school starts again this week so I’ll be back in the hustle of school, work, productions, and goals. Hopefully my assistant (who’s completely fine) can be my backup poster when things get hectic, lol.

Let’s have a good and productive year, beautiful people!

Hugs

Alexandra

Miss Alexandra has been quite busy getting herself ready for something challenging mid-August.

With that, and a new job that has also got me working harder as well, she is spending a lot of time purely at work.

Unfortunately, something has happened in the files that has her extremely worried.

When something is worrying you and/or you work very hard for what feels like no advancement, ask for help. Miss Alexandra has relied on me when she needed to, and I’m happy to give her that extra help. It keeps her from stressing about more. She’s still working hard, but she’s not alone. Neither are you.

Sincerely,

Assistant Edgar

Easter

Easter is this Sunday. Meaning today is Good Friday. And the first day of Passover.

Happy everything.

This is just my little note to all of you who celebrate Easter, Happy Easter!

Eat eggs and ham (I just realized Easter I practically Dr. Seuss Day). Paint those eggs green. Eat chocolate. Watch Peter Rabbit (the old one actually based on Beatrix Potter’s books). And find a bunch of plastic with more chocolate. Enjoy baskets!

I hope you have a great holiday.

And for those who don’t celebrate, I hope you have a great weekend.

Easter Hugs!

Alexandra
