hi friends! hope you’re having a good night. i just got home from taco tuesday at vitos with britty b. for those who don’t know, i met brittany when i first moved up here through my bestie mg. despite the fact we live directly across the street from each other, we don’t hang out nearly enough! (like, despite bumping into each other randomly, i think the last time we actually hung out was last halloween. not ok!)
hidden gem: vitos does half price tacos on tuesdays. and they are awesome. my personal favorite are the fish tacos (below) but britty got the baja beef tacos that looked pretty awesome as well! it was so fun catching up. britty has always been theeeee best at halloween- this year she’s being a lego person to a work party and tanya harding to a friends (i saw pics of both costumes- totally on point! will have to share later.) her ursula last year = unreal.
but despite tonight being so fun, today for me was just blah. i usually don’t write about that kinda stuff here, but one of my favorite bloggers, madison of espresso and cream, posted today about how the motivation behind one of her post was a bit ugly- she realized that she was just looking for people to think/say nice things and to build herself up.
when i started (b)log up again, it was honestly because i was looking back at all of my old posts and absolutely loving that my life was documented. i missed having that! it was so nice being able to relive the fun moments (and delicious food) that i captured in pictures and words- things i would have normally forgot. (in fact, t, kp & i spent some time friday scrolling through memory lane courtesy of (b)log!)
but now when i look back, something i noticed that you guys wouldn’t is that all my posts were so happy. and to be honest, i was very unhappy through a lot of it. i was breaking up with my boyfriend from college, and it was tough. i was making (and losing) some friends, and the transition was hard! but i chose not to document that. i wanted it to appear that my life was only happy- and lets be real, no ones is.
so truth is- today was not my best. i felt overwhelmed at work. i was anxious most of the day and had a hard time dealing with situations i normally thrive in. (although, i still think i did a good job, i just felt off.) and i felt sad at some points for other personal reasons that im not totally comfortable talking about, but will admit were there. so lets just say, it was an off day, ok?
but the thing is, the day ended well! and thats the part i usually only (b)log about. not knocking it (and im not going to turn (b)log into a diary of every up and down), but i agree with madison- sometimes its best to check your intentions. while most of mine here are to document the good times (aka the stuff you actually want to remember)- life isn’t perfect. so its silly to portray it that way. the hard times are worth remembering sometimes too. and its silly to make your life seem perfect.
hi, im the first one to snark on people who i can tell are lying. not nice, but true.
so theres my actual day. it wasn’t all cute cat pics and tiaras and cupcakes. it actually sucked 2/3 of the time. but thankfully i had a great friend who ate tacos with me and turned it all around!
