Weekly Wishes #7


Another round of Weekly Wishes! Zip-a-dee-doo-dah!

This week’s picture prompt is Celebration (in honor of Monja’s first birthday, I think! Happy birthday Monja!). I thought it only fitting to put up a picture of something Christmas-y since it’s one of my favorite holidays. I don’t know about you but Christmas is on my mind already. Bring on the cozy decor, festive songs, good food and company. Oh, and I could use a trip to Disneyland too. 😉

So you can probably tell from the lack of posts that we’ve been busy. My ultimate goal for this blog was to have consistent posts but I don’t think it’s possible with busy life going on and dozens of things to handle in the next few weeks so yes, the number of posts per week will go down to maybe 3-4 but don’t worry, you can still keep up with us on Twitter. We will, however, be back in full force when things settle down a bit.

Last week’s wishes were to:

1. Get things done. Eh? I should just take this off my list. I feel like I’m not going anywhere with this.

2. Write. I did get some actual writing done for half the week but then Microsoft Word swayed me and I’m back on the keyboard again. It felt good to hold a pencil though.

3. Reclaim my passion for art. It felt good to get support from everyone who commented last week so thank you. How did I do for this goal? I was actually more inspired this week. I started to look at things from different angles and it’s helping that Skye is my driving force whenever I’m lazy or discouraged.

By the way, it’s been weeks and my drawing hasn’t seen the light of day on this blog. Gomenasai! I hope to build up enough self-confidence to show my drawings to you soon enough.

This week’s wishes are:

1. Get back on track with my workouts. Dare I say I’ve been slacking? Yes, indeed. I’ve been slacking and watching TV during my usual workout time. Guilty! But I’mma step it up this week and watch TV after my workouts. Please, everyone, you have to watch Rurouni Kenshin. I have not been more in love with a show before. I have a post coming up on it but whether or not I finish it depends on how my second goal works out…

2. Finish all these drafts!! I swear I have 15 drafts to wrap up but I can’t seem to just write them out and end them. The posts will slow down but the least I can do is finish a couple, right?

3. Work on thinking of better responses to people. Why am I awkward? Why? Why? I feel like ‘I’m awkward’ is such a cliche, worn out phrase but I can’t think of anything else to describe me as when I talk to people I don’t really know/would like to get to know more. I always feel like my responses are so stiff and formal and in the back of my mind I’m afraid that I’ll be taken as serious or boring. But it’s not in my nature to get pally with people quickly. Um, this goes for comments and Twitter replies too. Does this even make any sense?

What do you think? Manageable or impossible? What are your weekly wishes? Don’t be afraid to tell me in the comment section even if you’re not participating in the link-up. If you choose to write your own post, link up with Melyssa. 🙂

Here are last week’s posts that you might have missed:

  • I only just listened to this song again. It’s adorable.
  • I wrote a guest post for Skye’s art series.
  • Here are some cute Labradors swimming in the water.
  • There is no fall here. Can you live without fall?
  • Last but not least, an outfit worthy of wearing to Fashion Week in this week’s Fashionable Friday #7.

Wish me luck in taking on all the tasks to come! In return, I hope you stay fabulous and composed throughout the week!

By the way, if anyone can recommend a good site to get good rates on flights, please let me know. Thank you!

  1. Hi Raine!! I LOVE your goals for the week! Good luck with getting back into working out. I make that one my Weekly Wishes, well, weekly and I haven’t been doing so well with it. Ugh! Let’s both do this!!

    I also love your final goal, of getting better at responding to folks. Personally, I think your responses are perfect! If you put too much pressure on yourself to respond a certain way, then you’ll really struggle. Just write what feels right, the original commenter will be able to feel your sincerity, I’m sure.

    Either way, have a fantastic week!

    • Ah, you’re too sweet Jillian! Thank you for thinking that my responses are perfect – what a high compliment, I don’t think I deserve it. I will definitely stick to my true self when commenting but try to be a bit more easygoing(?)
      Working out is my weekly Weekly Wish too, haha. I was doing quite well until I kind of let it slide. Let’s get our workout on this week and every week!

  2. Hey 😉 I also have dozens of drafts right now… hopefully I have most of my posts scheduled for the week. And I feel the same way about me for #3! Good luck with this week’s goals!

    • I’m not the only one who is a champ at drafts then 😉 We need to get down and finish those awesome posts.
      Thanks Mal!

  3. I too am already sooo excited for Christmas! I just love this time of the year 🙂 I think you have some great goals for the next week- wow! I need to get back on track with my workouts too. Blah.

    • Santa Claus is coming to town real soon 😀 Thanks so much Kayli! I’m looking forward to my workouts and hope you are too 🙂

  4. I love that you already have Christmas on your mind! My husband does too. I normally try to hold off on Christmas until after Thanksgiving, but since my husband is so excited, I can’t help but be a little bit excited too! And I really think you should share some drawings- I shared my painting, remember? And it wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be. Good luck with finishing all your drafts too- I think that the end of the post is always the hardest part, but once you finish them they are off your plate!

    • High five for getting into the Christmas spirit!
      Gah, I need to toughen my guts and just put up my drawings. I’ll try to remember that and hope that it won’t be as scary. 🙂
      Those ends are really hard to write but I managed to finish TWO yesterday. Woohoo! Thanks for the encouragement Lauren!

  5. Haha. I don’t think you’re awkward or boring. Your responses are great! I’ve been slacking at the gym too, I call it my hibernation belly 🙂 Today was my first day back at the gym in weeks. Have a great week and good luck finishing all your drafts. May the powers of productiveness be with you!

    • You’re the best, Ali! Thank you for the well wishes <3
      Hibernation belly, hah, good one. 😉 Eases the guilt a little, right?

  6. Oh man, I loved this: “Why am I awkward? Why? Why?” That is like the story of my life! And I totally don’t think your replies come off as awkward–in fact, just the opposite!
