Just Not Feelin' It

It's been 4 weeks since I competed at Jr USA's and I've barely written anything. Honestly? I just haven't felt like writing. I stare at the blank screen and think about what I could write about, but then shrug and think, "But I don't really feel like writing."

Remember last year when I wrote about how I felt like I went from being a beautiful swan to an ugly duckling? Oddly enough, I wrote that post about 4 weeks after my show - same time frame as this year. And I'm feeling about the same way I did last year. Although I haven't had the extreme mood swings that I had last year, I've definitely had some mixed emotions in the past few weeks. Overall, I've felt much happier post-contest than I did last year. But I still don't feel quite "right" ... if that makes any sense.

I really thought I was going to avoid the post-comp blues this year. And while I don't feel like I have the "blues" per se, I've definitely felt a bit out of sorts more often that I would have liked. I'm feeling much more positive this week, though, because I realized something about long term vs short term gratification - but you'll have to wait until later this week for that post and explanation.

This is just a quick post to let you all know I'm still alive and smiling! And also that I got some obnoxiously bright pink capris from Lulu recently. I love them!

Can my outfit BE any more obnoxious?! I love pink!


  1. I LOVE it!! Bright makes me happy!


  2. SO HOT!
    I'll be excited to hear what you get passionate about after this season. You always seem to write your passions, and I love to read about what you find worth your time. :)

  3. Those are adorable as are you!

  4. Still love the updates Kari, hope you are feeling better. :)

  5. The only think more obnoxious would be the words 'juicy' written across the butt! :-)
