Life Lately

Another life lately post? Don't mind if I do... oh, Happy September!!!!!!

I'm currently in bed with a horrible stomach, watching The Real Housewives of Orange County, and a few blinks away from sleep.

This past week was the longest of my life; I worked from Monday-Wednesday, got up Thursday morning and drove to Pennsylvania for a work trip. I know I said I wouldn't talk about my job in any specifics but I will say that I was at QVC.



Yes, one of the home shopping networks -- that's where my work trip was. It was surreal and cool and very odd. I basically was up for 24 hours straight, only sleeping for about 4 hours from Thursday into Friday. It was really weird being in a television studio and actually being held responsible for something.

I was basically live tweeting/'gramming/facebooking the entire time during our 10 shows on Friday, last from 12AM-12AM. It was truly a wild experience and I never thought I'd do anything like that.

I was nervous the day or so leading up to the trip but it was nothing compared to what I usually experience. I was calm in a sense, and fine once we got to the studio. The only thing that truly worried me was being awake for so long because when I'm awake for that long, I get sick.

Which is how I feel now.

After a whirlwind few days, I drove home Saturday morning, rested for a little bit, showered, and then headed to a Mets game at Citi Field that afternoon with my college friends.

My anxiety hasn't been that bad lately, but the past two weeks I've been struggling really bad -- and it hit me after the trip more than before/during, probably due to the overwhelming exhaustion I feel. It's so bad that I slept through three alarms this morning and basically was asleep the entire day at work.

(Side note: I have no idea where this post is going... I'm just talking)

I am so excited for the fall it's unreal-- I feel like I come alive in the fall. The crispness in the air, pumpkin everything, sweaters, riding boots -- BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!

Got my fall candles ready & waiting :)
I also have been on a kick of "get me out of the house, let's do something". I've been (OMG) socializing with the outside world the past few weeks and it feels good. I feel the need to keep myself busy and just feel fulfilled. It's been so out of character that my friends were talking behind my back and said "Briana has left her house three weekends in a row!" - I am a true homebody, through and through.

A lot of fun things are happening honestly, and I'm excited. I recently became a volunteer advisor to my sorority -- I'll be helping out a local chapter in Long Island and I don't remember the last time I was this excited. My sorority was such a huge part of my life in college(as you know, I talk about it constantly) and to feel like I'm going back, and doing what I've always loved and what I was good at, feels right. It'll give me something else to do and I'm really looking forward to it.

I have another little side project planned but don't want to say anything yet because it's not 100% definite but if so, it will surely keep my hands busy!

I'm also getting into making monthly goals for things I want to do -- from making a doctor's appointment to getting a new blog design. I think that'll keep me focused and force me to do things from a bigger perspective.

I just feel like I need to get my shit together. It's been two years since senior year started, and I'm still very much longing for my college campus and I think I need to just suck it up. It's over, it's done with, all I have are the memories so let's move on. I need to find other things to do; I can't just stay at home every night watching TV and beauty tutorials on Youtube. I need to DO SOMETHING.

I feel the fire being lit under my ass and it's time to get moving!



What advice do you guys have about staying busy, getting out of the house, staying motivated & positive? I could use all the good vibes I could get :)
