New year, new updates.
In our last post, we talked about all of our ups and downs from 2017. So now we’re jumping right into 2018 and what we’ve been doing for the past (almost) two weeks. I know, it’s only been two weeks but we have to fill you guys in, okay!
Since August of last year, we’ve been drowning in work. I’m talking all kinds of work. Schoolwork, work-work, blog work, and trying to literally furnish our apartment.
We’ll go ahead and disclose exactly how our schedules worked up until this January.
Hannah is a full-time college student, which means she’s on campus 5 days a week from around 9:00am to 6:00pm, while I work for my family doing various admin duties from around 10:00am to 4:00pm Monday through Thursday. To sum things up, our schedules don’t leave much room for us to do anything not related to work or school during the week. And of course, we always have a full list of weekly things to do on top of these schedules.
This is an example of what our week to week to-do list has looked like.
- Grocery store
- Blog post
- Film YouTube video
- Edit YouTube video
- Take pictures (like a million of them)
- Do laundry
- Clean literally the whole apartment (things get messy around here)
- Spray paint bar cart
- Put up shelves
With two days at our disposal, you can see how whatever home project we have lined up gets put on the back-burner.
January is our month of catch up.
Since we didn’t have much free time except for on weekends to do all of the projects in our home, we’re buckling down and getting to work this month. With Hannah on a 2 month break from classes, we’re using the time to do the projects we’ve been putting off.
If you aren’t excited for all of the projects we’re working on….well, you’re hurting our feelings because you should be.
Some of these projects include spray painting thrift store finds, hanging shelves (because y’all know our itty bitty apartment needs more storage), and getting our decor together. Since we’ve (almost) entirely furnished this place, it’s all in the details now! Well it’s always been about the details but don’t rain on our parade, the details are exciting!
We plan on documenting these changes, so stay tuned for more!
Until next time,
Ariana & Hannah
