Late Night Blogging with Mary: Part 10

I was going to try not and do one of these this week but it seems like as soon as I sit down to blog all of my ideas are gone. I think I’ve done at least one of these every week since I started it. That would be an okay thing if that was the intention, but it wasn’t. I really need to get a blogging calendar (that’s a stupid excuse, I know) so I can get my life in order. When I tried it before the problem was I had too many ideas, but I think it would be helpful now since I don’t seem to have enough. My brain is barren when it comes to practical blog post ideas. Maybe I should start doing my not practical ones and actually be proud of what I’m posting. Obviously, I’m frustrated with myself right now, my blog just isn’t where I want it to be, so of course I’m having the open conversation because that’s just what I do.

Everyone is back at school now, I’m alone. I mean, I’ve been alone most of the summer as it is, but it’s weirder now because it’s almost like I’m missing out, even though I know I’m not. Like everyone is back at my college and I don’t go down to visit until next weekend and I just feel like I’m missing something. I have this fear that everyone is going to forget about me/ not want to hang out/ be too busy to hang out when I go down, because they’re all in class. I also hate to be that person who asks people to hang out with them. I know, that’s stupid, but I would much rather people ask me to hang out because whenever I ask, I always feel so annoying. But really all I want to do is seem my friends and talk to them in person, not over the phone or text, I just want to look at their faces and talk to them, while we’re all together and I’m not in another state.  That sounds whiny and bratty I know, especially since I’m about to go on a journey of a lifetime, you don’t need to tell me, I get it. I just feel like I’m missing out, even though in a few weeks I’ll be making some new friends and having my own adventure and FINALLY going to classes.

Speaking of leaving, I’m beyond ready to go. I leave in two and a half weeks, find out who my roommates are on Monday (maybe tomorrow if I’m lucky!), and I will hopefully finish packing next week. My last day of work is not until the 10th so hopefully I’ll be able to get some more hours and make the time go faster since people left, but I doubt it. I don’t like that I’m wishing away time, so I’m trying to fill it up. I watch a lot of travel videos. Some of those people I think are actually crazy. They come up with the weirdest stuff to pick out and go against. Some are helpful, but some of them, I just say “What????” to because it just doesn’t make logical sense. Pick and choose what you listen to, no need to get caught up in every detail.

I want to do another post about my travel tips. Also, what I noticed, is that there are a million what’s in my suitcase videos for the beach and whatnot, but not very many for studying abroad, if I made a video would anyone watch? Should I vlog any of my trip? Every time I put videos up I end up making the private. Any opinions? Let me know.

I’m suffering from severe bloggers block. I don’t know why. Leave me tips to beat it please.

    Hey, sorry I didn’t post a comment earlier. Maybe you should make a packing video, but not show the things that are too personal if you know what I mean. Also, maybe you should include some tips on how to travel with minimal anxiety? Perhaps some people may find that interesting. You could also, if you have time, once you’re away, every time you get back to the hotel at night, do a blog (perhaps a video) on how the day went. These are just some ideas I have on the top of my head, lol!

    I think the key to blogging is to write what you want, and not always worry about whether or not everyone will like it. I know that’s difficult at times, but a blog should be more about you enjoying it than others. For example, I write about my anxiety to help both myself and others but I enjoy what I’m writing. I’ve never really written a post and said, ‘Boy, I really hate this, but maybe my reader’s will like it’. I think when posts come from the heart, it shows. If you’re not happy with what you write, try to change it until you are! I hope that helps!

      Thanks for the tips! I’ve mostly packed haha but I still might do one anyway. I’m definitely going to be blogging (hopefully more often than now) and I think I’ll do a weekly video of what I did that week, like a weekly vlog if you’ve ever seen any of those.
      I know that’s the important thing about blogging, the problem is I’m not sure what I want to write. Thanks for the advice!!

Tell me what you want, what you really really want!
