Oops. This was written up yesterday as a draft but I never posted it. Co-worker had a going away party at the end of the day and I’m sure you can guess how that goes.
I’m not feeling particularly inspired for this day’s post so I’m going to go back to ranting about wedding stuff. This is probably taboo to talk about, but I need an outlet to rant about my biggest challenge so far. The wedding registry.
I just don’t know how to do it. God it’s like I figured it’d be so easy to just throw shit together. I hate gifts. It feels weird, especially with us being together for so long. People are asking me things like “Where will your registry be?” and I really don’t know what to tell them. I’m finding it difficult to know what I should add to it, thinking of color palettes, what appliances I should add, etc.
I’m a designer by trade but I can’t put together a room. Maybe it’s because I rent and I don’t particularly care for my space I’m in right now, but I feel like I lack the skills to look like I have my shit together. One time I put some oranges in a bowl and had it out on our kitchen table, I felt like the classiest mofo ever.
I’m going to Ikea this weekend to kind of get an idea of what I’d like to do or what I should start planning for. It’ll be challenging for me to try and picture the piece in a room, rather than “hey that’s pretty cool!” Next post will probably be me trying to do interior design for once.
