Oh yeah Carinthia, I am back home!! On Sunday afternoon I arrived back home at my parents – packed with bags full of Christmas presents and a huge suitcase full of clothes. And more importantly, much anticipation of whats to come in the following two weeks. I cannot wait to spend the Christmas days with my lovely family, enjoy a fun birthday night (duh, my granny is turning 70, that woman rocks), meet my old classmates, have fun with one of my best friends Jaci and enjoy some quality time with the mister.
And in order to enjoy these moments to the fullest I decided that you won’t be hearing much from me on the blog in the next few days. I’ll definitely post the odd Instagram (missgetaway) picture and sometimes update you on my thoughts on Snapchat (miss.getaway) or Twitter (miss_getaway). But I’ll try to live in the moment as much as possible in the next few Christmas days.
As a social media addict and blogger, I spend an increasingly big amount of time online. Whether that’s reading other bloggers posts, editing pictures or watching your snapchat stories…. it’s valuable time, that I could spend with my family and friends. The thing is: I don’t see these people too often. And when I do I want to enjoy every moment to the fullest! Also I realized that I started to pay way too much thoughts on unimportant things such as blog views, likes and comments. Why compare with others? In the end we’re all unique and different. It doesn’t make you a better person if you have x amount of likes on your picture, or x amount of followers on your social medias.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the online culture. I’ve met some lovely and dear friends through Instagram or Twitter that I wouldn’t have known otherwise. And I’m utterly grateful for all the opportunities this blog brought to me so far. I want you to know that I don’t take any of that for granted – and honestly, I don’t even understand why y’all are following me. I’m pretty weird, aren’t I? :D
Also I’m a bit unsatisfied with how unorganized I became in the past few weeks. With the blog becoming more and more work, some job-changes and finals coming up I kinda completely lost my organizational talent
people admired me for. And that basically led to me completely stressing out over the tiniest things because I’m a very structured person and can’t live without my plan.
Therefore, I decided that I need to take some days off to re-organize and plan things. I want to fill this blog with high-quality content after all. And next to that I also want to pass my finals with a fairly good grade. And above all that: I don’t want to get all stressed out!! Duh, I’m a rather ambitious person after all.
On that note I want to wish you all some amazing Christmas days. Enjoy the time with your family and friends. Eat lots and lots of yummy food (and please don’t feel guilty about it). Be grateful and live in the moment. Make these last days of 2015 some memorable ones!!! And hey, make sure to check back after the holidays because I’ll definitely have some great things coming up :P
And duh, don’t spend all your free-time online. Grab a book, get into the bathtub, put on some face mask and simply ENJOY the moment ♥
Merry Christmas everyone! And don’t forget to spend some time offline. ;)
