I know that if you are following this blog and see this pop up on your notifications, it may come as a shock. I don’t really have a good excuse for going 4 months without blogging, aside from just a general lack of motivation to do so. A lot of that has to do with my environment, which I’ll get into in just a moment.
For now, I will tell you what tea I am enjoying at the moment: Serene Teaz Toasted Almond Fritter– my absolute favorite at the moment. I got it from a wonderful little independent tea shop in Wheaton, Illinois (a quaint little suburbian town outside of Chicago). It is so delicious, and it instantly makes my mood improve when I drink it. It is so soothing and sweet…I’m going to have to move on because I could talk about this tea for hours.
So, some life updates. I last left off on a post where I was still working night shift, and things at that job were seeming to improve. Well, in April, I left the job. One can only take so much working in a place like that, and since this is a Tea Time post, I will get a little personal: I am mildly traumatized from that job. Not to the point where it’s PTSD or anything, but enough to where when I revisit memories from working there, it makes me feel like I’m going to have a panic attack. The good news is that I have a new job that I am very happy about. My current path is to end up being either a vetinary technician or assitant (one requires schooling, one simply requires a promotion). I am currently a kennel worker, so I still get lots of time to work with animals directly, but I really want to be in the lab and work with the medical side of things. That’s my current direction, and I really hope it works out.
So back to what I was saying at the beginning: my environment. I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned on here or not, but I live in a tiny studio apartment. And it’s so hard to function in this place because you know, I’ve got a lot of stuff, particularly tea and essential oil stuff. So my apartment is very crowded and very hard to move around in and very hard to just function in. So, it makes me very unmotivated to do the most basic things, even things that I enjoy like blogging, cooking, making stuff out of essential oils. Sometimes I don’t even feel like making tea because it would require me to move across the crowded room.
But I am moving in roughly a month, and while the process has been a little stressful, I am looking forward to having more space to live in. More space to put my stuff in. A full size kitchen. A washer and dryer….I just really hope it all works out.
That’s all for now. I’m hoping to get back into blogging a little in the upcoming weeks, but I can’t promise anything. I know for sure I will get back into it when I move, but until then, who knows?
For now, I hope you all are well and enjoying your teas. Have a wonderful week, and happy sipping!
