REPOST about why I neglect to post...

Is it saying something that I'm resorting to REposting old blog posts about not posting? It just so happens that this is still how I feel:

So it's been awhile since my last post. And that's been bothering me. Not that I think I could be one of those people who posts daily (at least not right now in my life) but it is a goal of mine to make time to post what's on my mind.

Sometimes I neglect to post because of lack of words. literally. sometimes I just have nothing to say.

Sometimes I neglect to post because I'm just way too busy. which is often. but if I didn't post for the simple reason that I'm too busy, then I would never post...
Sometimes I neglect to post because I have way too many things to say and I can't narrow my train of thought {this is the most common reason}. I mean seriously. sometimes I just can't make sense of everything going on in this mind of mine. I get ideas for blog posts all. the. time. but it's hard for me to focus on one at a time. I get overwhelmed. kinda like lorelai.

Sometimes I neglect to post because my words/ideas seem insignificant. I'll come up with something I want to say, but by the time I sit down at the computer to type, it seems ridiculous. it seems silly, because this is my blog. my space. and it should reflect me - no matter how insignificant I may feel. yet the self critic inside of me finds a way to talk me out of posting things that in no way stand up to the kinds of posts I read from others.

So there it is. That's what's on my mind right now. :)

Boston - Gilmore Girls Style

Okay, so I know I promised I would write a blog post for every day of our trip, but the couple weeks following our trip have been busy with catching up with, well... life! And now that I've waited so long, I've sort of run out of steam.

Since I'm currently watching Gilmore Girls (and am obviously obsessed) I thought a Gilmore Girls Boston post would suffice. I had some lovely Lorelai/Rory moments on our trip that I'd love to share:


As we were walking through Newton (the suburb of Boston we stayed in) we passed this school and I decided that it was Chilton... what do you think? Could be, huh?
Actual Chilton in Gilmore Girls
Under the Johnston Gate! Not the prettiest weather :)
Harvard Squirrel! (Lorelai and Rory take a picture of one too... theirs is probably similar in quality)
Dance at Bougival, 1883
Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Boston Museum of Fine Arts
Lorelai playing "Renoir Girl" in the Festival of Living Pictures

(4) B&B
Our room at our B&B in Provincetown. Not as over the top as Lorelai and Rory's room in the Cheshire Cat :)

We didn't actually make it to Martha's Vineyard like Lorelai and Rory, but we did experience the Cape, which still reminded me of the Gilmore trip. I can't embed this clip for some reason, but click here if you want Lorelai's lovely dialogue involving lighthouses, ferries, spermaceti and gay head: YouTube

And to conclude, here's a picture of Brad and I at a lighthouse!
