THE WEEKLY NOTES #43 WEDDING PLANS, FEELING SWAMPED & SUPPORTING OTHERS

 

What a week!

 

This is the first week I’ve felt really swamped with juggling wedding planning, the blog, my other job and maintaining some sort of normal social life. It’s been fucking hard. As you noticed I only posted twice, despite one being insanely beefy, it’s been quiet over here. I would say sorry but I’m actually not! I just need to do what I can when I can for the next few months. If it means 1 post a week then I’m not going to beat myself up about it because this shit is hard. I’m about to enter into a whole 10 days straight of work at the shop which I’m excited about because I love my job but I’m also slightly nervous about. It sounds strange but I am a planner and although I knew this week of work was coming up I feel as though I’ve blinked and it’s here! Much like the wedding will be I guess.

 

As I said I’ve been feeling pretty swamped this week and it wasn’t helped when I went into a store to a do a job for a brand and I wasn’t confronted with the rudest customer service. I explained that I was there on behalf of the company to take some photos for a job that I was doing and the way I was treated was like crap. It was very obvious very quickly that we (Isaac and I) were not welcome into the store. When we walked out we were both in shock and in a way I was disappointed. Why in today’s day is it so hard to be kind? I then went onto cancelling the job with the company and explaining my disappointment. For those who were wondering I didn’t hear back.

 

For 2017 I made it a goal to make sure I’m continually showing my fellow bloggers love and support. I think it’s important to do that because we are all trying to get somewhere. I have been overwhelmed with the love over on Instagram lately and I’m so excited to have a great community over there. I’m also making sure to comment on at least 10 blog posts most days and I’m loving reading everyones work again!

 


What have you guys been up to this week?

    Ah, the times of craziness! I remember a few years ago, I was in a similar situation – balancing 3 jobs, activities, socialness and a casual blog – I don’t know how I got through it but I did eventually and felt like a great achievement! Do what you can that you’re happy with!

    Arg, I hate bad customer service or even just not a happy person – it’s not that hard. Luckily you let that one go.

    Life definitely gets like that sometimes and when it does my blog always takes a backseat. It’s a shame and I don’t like doing it, but sometimes real life has to come first and that’s nothing to be ashamed of. That’s also super surprising that you were meant to be working with the brand and then a staff member was so rude to you and brand didn’t even acknowledge it?! That’s just bizarre to me, but at least you know not to work with them anymore!

    That really sucks that they were rude to you. Totally understandable why you wouldn’t want to work with them.
    I hope life calms down for you soon!

    That situation with the terrible customer service really irks me. And it’s even worse how the company handled it (by not dealing with it at all)!!! Definitely would NOT want to work with a company like that anyway. So horrible!

    Juggling planning a wedding in-between everything must be a crazy amount of work, I couldn’t even imagine!!! I hope it all calms down for you soon :) xx

    Rudeness should never be tolerated and good on your for cancelling the job. Don’t stress too much about everything. Focus on the wedding and enjoying what makes you happy xx

    Hope things are working out fine for you. I feel you – been there, done that. Just try to enjoy the stress of wedding planning, you’ll miss it when it’s over and done with (kinda).
