31 Things

I have writers block. Well that’s not entirely true, I have been writing all day prepping for my October 31 days series, which will be a little different than last years but I can’t wait! But it seems that I used pretty much all of my creativity today working on that and I’ve spent the last 2 hours trying to come up with a half way decent post to share with y’all for today.

I’m exhausted from the move in the last week, I’m still figuring out my new routine and I’m getting started in a new job and I really just want to go to sleep on my air mattress (because I have been sleeping on the floor for a week, probably part of the exhaustion) so I’m going to do something a little different today! My old babysitter who is basically my big sister is a writer too and earlier this summer she told me that when she was in college and had writers block she would make lists of things to help get over it. I can’t remember exactly but I think she said she would make a list of 31 things, so since I’m sleepy and completely drained creatively here’s my list of 31 things floating around in my head right now.

1. I am loving my new city
2. I can’t wait to get my gallery wall off the floor and on the wall
3. Swimming in the ocean daily is good for the soul
4. I’m drooling over gold and acrylic right now
5. I can’t wait to sleep on a mattress tonight, even if it’s inflatable
6. I can’t get enough of my new skincare products
7. As much as I love CA I’m kind of wishing for sweater weather
8. So I can wear my blanket scarves and booties
9. I also want to eat and make pumpkin everything
10. Succulents are the cutest plants ever
11. I’m becoming a pro at packing and living out of a suitcase
12. And my wardrobe is becoming pretty small as a result
13. I’ve found the absolute best travel snacks
14. I need a new camera
15. I have to update my 101 in 1001
16. I’ve been reflecting a lot on my time in DC
17. And I’m getting really excited to see what this new adventure has in store for me
18. I’m falling back in love with Pinterest
19. I’ve been reading a ton
20. I’m on a health kick (again) and this one might actually stick
21. I’m excited to get into a routine and see what a day in the life is like on the West Coast
22. I have a new hair routine that I’m hoping will help with my breaking hair
23. I think pretty notebooks help me stay motivated
24. I’m still toying with the idea of doing a vlog
25. I love the J.Crew daily sales they have this week
26. Transitions can be hard and stressful
27. Instagram is the most inspiring part of my day
28. I need to organize my purse, it’s turned into a black hole
29. My Instagram feed is turning into a collage of sunsets and oceans, I’m going to challenge myself to have a little more variety
30. I did some goal setting the other day and I can’t wait to start checking them off
31. I can’t wait to share some of my blogging tips with y’all later this week

As I was writing this list I noticed that a lot of them could easily turn into posts, it’s amazing what putting pen to paper (actual pen to actual paper) can do to help get the creative juices moving again when you’re stuck. I’d love to hear what y’all do to help beat writers block!
