I Can’t Decide


Why are decisions so hard?! I’m talking to those of you who, like me, can never make up your mind. I just can’t decide. Really though, I never can.

And it’s not even the hard decisions that get me, it’s the really simple ones. Like what flavor smoothie to get at McDonald’s. Just kidding. I don’t like McDonald’s.

More like what flavor shake to get at In N Out.

Or what color to paint my walls.

Or what pattern curtains to use.

It drives me crazy. I mean what if I make the wrong choice?!

What if I choose one and then later realize that I really should have chosen the other?!

It’s a scary thing to do, this decision-making business. There’s always all this talk about trusting your gut. How the heck do you do that?! I can’t do that.

Is It Really Over?

Is it really over

Well, this is awkward. I’ve never been here before, I’ve never felt like this. How did this happen? How did it come to this? I keep asking myself all those questions.

What If…


Another day on my blogging challenge! Is it day 4? I think it’s day 4.

Today’s topic is “what if.” Everyone has at least one “what if” scenario they think about. I have some of my own.

Like this one, what if I fall..?

It may sound silly to some, but tripping over my own two feet is kind of the norm for me. Everywhere I go, I wonder what in the world I will do if I fall. How do you pick yourself up from that? Especially in public?! #awkward

Top 5 Pet Peeves // New Blog Name

top 5 pet peeves

I CHANGED MY TITLE!!! Did that come out in all caps??? Oops! I get excited about these things, okay?! Haha! I was having MAJOR doubts about my blog name, so I talked it over with a friend and I’ve decided to change it from “A Modest Soul” to “Quite Simply Annie”. I just don’t think that the original title really expressed my blog content very well and “Quite Simply Annie” is nice and short and chic and I like it a lot better. 🙂

Enough rambling.. on to the post! 😉

You know how some things just really get on your nerves? Like to the point where you want to pull out all of your hair? Or to the point where you’re ready to just throw in the towel? Yup, me too! Here are my top 5 pet peeves! Continue reading
