WTSL Weekly

In case no one noticed, since last week, I stopped participating in memes. Don't get me wrong-they were fun, but three memes a week have become a handful. I started stressing myself out too much and that is so not fun. I don't want blogging to be stressful. Also, I decided not to be too harsh on myself. It's okay not to post every day. Yes, I'm aware that my stats will drop. But then again, I didn't start the blog for the numbers.

A long time ago I used to do weekly wrap-ups which were basically three or four memes thrown into one, and that worked best for me. I'm switching back to that model. And no, this is not an attempt at creating a new meme, and I'm not linking it anywhere. Since I'm hoping to get a job soon (as in, come on, Universe, it's not funny anymore soon), I expect my time will be even more limited, hence one accumulative post on Saturday.

My kid thought that my shelf lacked a special something.
