I'm Stressed Because I'm not Alien


If I were an alien looking at the people on plant earth I would ask myself why everyone is so stressed.
but
I am not an alien and I don't live in space and I am stressed about EVERYTHING.

I am currently stressing about what to write about. I am brain dead. Why can't I be alien things would be a lot easier, I think? What would life be like if I were alien? I think if I were alien I would spy on these so called humans. Looking at life from a higher point, what would that look like? I guess we would all look like busy. I mean I know I am always pretty busy, which at time sucks... but soon it will summer and - Alien me is asking what summer is... I don't even know what I am saying. 

Don't stress about it. I dare you.

Much love and confusion in this case,
Vanessa

#BloggerProblems {Guest Post}



Hiya darlings, I'm Sara from over at herelectricocean.blogspot.co.uk, and I am really excited to be writing today's post for the lovely Vanessa Best!Today I thought I'd post a fun, airy post about some of the #firstworld blogger problems that I'm pretty sure you'll all be able to relate to. Let me know what your thoughts are, and if I've missed any out please feel free to add them in the comments section!


1. When it's always TOO DARK TO TAKE PICTURES

2. And when the lighting is perfect, you rush to grab your camera, and there's no battery left...

3. So you look for a stock photo for your next post, but end up getting to carried away, and download/purchase a mini haul of them

4. And you realize you have like no storage left

5. So you go out to town for one thing and end up spending £70 because you need new props anyway, and there was a 'sale'

6. But then you have to try and justify it to a non-blogger and they don't understand why you're buying 'props' for your flatlays

7. And all your friends seem to assume that your blog is some kind of secret diary for everyone to read

8. So you try and make some blogger friends, but they all seem to be based on the other side of the country- or world

9. When your computer crashes- just after you've finished writing out a super long post

10. So you go onto Instagram, and have instant envy of every blogger you follow because they have the brand new 'it' book

11. And you realize that you hardly ever get sent anything compared to the bloggers you read

12. Then you start criticizing your blog so much you wonder if your blog is even worth running

13. So you write a post about blogger blues for the 204,252,470,250th time

14. And get like no comments, because everyone's heard it before- if not from you, then from someone else going through the exact same thing

15. So you stay up all night googling how to maximise views and comments for your next post, and so the cycle continues.

April Goals



GUESS WHAT? IT'S APRIL! Can you believe it? I know I can't! Happy April fools day! And guess what that also means? Yes, you guessed it. more monthly goals! Yippy!

1. Make new blogger/internet friends!- I feel inspired by Abbiee who posted a wonderful post about how amazing internet friends are and now I am going to reach out to more bloggers! Don't be surprised if you get an email from me saying hello! If you'd like to be friends send me an email, I would love to hear from you!

2. Live in the moment- I met a lady named Pat yesterday who just loves asking people if she can take their photo, this ladies moral is to live in the moment because you have no control over what happens tomorrow so you might as well enjoy what God has given you today.

3. Take more photos- Photos are amazing and I have a camera so why not? Plus North Carolina has been wonderful for taking photos! Everyday photos to remember what I am doing each day is something I want to work on!

Much love,
Vanessa
