Weekly Happiness

I’m finally sitting down to do work for the time since the first of the month. I mean, I’ve been showing up daily on Instagram, I made a presentation for Witchfest and had a great class there, I’ve taken care of adult things, I had a photoshoot with Maura, I’ve done some membership group content, but I haven’t really just sat down in my office, lit some candles, and gotten to work. Literally as I wrote this, a song called “We Go To Work” came on Spotify. I get it. I need to get shit done, and get caught up!

The reason is mainly that I’ve been stressed and depressed. I’ve been dealing with some financial issues and having to change a lot of things because of it. My friends and family have been so fucking generous, kind, and gone above and beyond the call of duty to support me through it I can’t even begin to express my gratitude it’s insane. But I’m still in a tight spot for a little bit, and it’s making me reevaluate some things, like where and what I spend money on and why. I’ve still been wanting to adventure and get out of the house, but instead of going on long gas-guzzling road trips and spending admission on more expensive things, or even on anything at all, I’ve been making a list of free things I can do here in Baltimore and we’re slowly exploring those options. So stay tuned on Instagram for those adventures to unfold! I’ll probably do a round-up post at the end of it all.

What are you up to? I have a lot of pictures to share with you from things I’ve been doing. And next up comes the content I owe you! I have so many ideas, I just need to make it happen!

Here’s what I’ve been into lately…
