I'm a frazzled mess, wbu?

Okay so can we just stop for a second and ask how on earth we’re over halfway through July already? What? I’m baffled. Time is whizzing by and I’ve I feel like I’ve toppled over and fallen into a hole of despair. I’m clutching onto either side trying to stop myself falling, but no matter how hard I try, I can’t. I keep slipping and slipping further and further until I’ve fallen into a pit of darkness. Before you know it the summer months are gone and all my organisation skills have all miraculously disappeared.


That’s honestly how I’ve felt the last week or so though. I think I’ve reached burnout in my organisational side of life. My bullet journal is sitting there, next to me, neglected and it’s really bothering me, but now I’ve stopped for two weeks the thought of starting again pains me. And yet at the same time, there’s nothing I want to do more than draw out a bright pink selection of pages for July. But We’re over halfway through? July is ruined. The inner turmoil inside my head right now it unbelievable.

Yes, you are reading about a girl who’s essentially having a massive strop because she didn’t draw out pages in her diary. Life is fab, right?

So basically, what’s happened is that I went camping for five days, thinking oh I’ll have loads of free time, I’ll just catch up on my bullet journal whilst I’m there, no problem. Ha. Yes, I did have free time, but I was too busy with my head in a book (The Handmaid's Tale anyone? Recommend it!) or pretending to be 7 again on some swings. Marvellous use of time (I’m being legit here, I’ve never been so relaxed and chilled) but did my bullet journal get updated? No, no it did not. So it went from being one day behind, to a week behind. Now we’re halfway through July and I HAVEN’T WRITTEN UP THIS MONTH’S SPREADS. Then at the weekend I threw a party and had the best time ever with my mates, but all the effort of that (partying and tidying) hasn’t made me like I want to sit down and get my creative brain out. #nope.

I don’t know what it is, I don’t know whether I’ve just got holiday brain or what, but this last week has felt like I’m scrambling about like I’m a rabbit in headlights. It’s come to my attention that when I say “I don’t know how I coped without a bullet journal before”, I mean, I don’t know how I coped without one. I don’t know how I coped! And now, in the busiest month of the year so far, I’ve got nothing written down and it’s stressing me out! Ahhh!

I’ve got super stressed out writing this post, but I think we can all relate to this feeling. Hopefully, it’s not just me! Sometimes things can be going so well, and you can be so on top of everything, but then just like that you can suddenly not be on it, and you wonder how on earth you managed to fit so many things in just last week! *sigh*

I’m heading to Lisbon on Tuesday so that’s going to be so much fun, but also potentially stressful because your gal hasn’t got her bullet journal ready! Argh. But no seriously, I wanted to write this because I don’t want to completely drop the ball when it comes to blogging, and this is a little half way point to some exciting new content coming your way soon!

When I return, I’m planning some posts on my adventures on Lisbon, some of the fun stuff I’ve been up to lately, including a book review or two, and of course more bullet journal posts. And how not to end up in a state like this where you don’t plan ahead and then get in a flustered mess like yours truly.

Since I’m in this state, you will notice (if you haven’t already) that I’m putting social media on the back foot until I’m back from Lisbon. Insta gals, don’t worry I’m coming back soon but need a break whilst I get everything in order.

Enjoy your day, I’ll be back soon - hopefully in a less frazzled state!

Much Love
