Today…well today I’m just going to dive right into the Sunday Lately topics. You guys know the drill by now, right? But first, a shot of my delicious brunch from Marty’s Market in the Strip District yesterday. Beercakes made with Shipyard Pumpkinhead, delicious Rustbelt maple sausage, and apple cider sangria. And coffee. Lots of coffee.
It feels like I haven’t stopped doing things in ages. The past few weeks have felt busier than summer when it comes to planned events (and ones that just pop up). Something that I’m trying to work on is saying No to things that I either don’t feel like doing or don’t have the time to do instead of smashing it all in one day and then not having time for myself. I came to the realization that I’m very afraid that if I say no once, people will stop asking me to do things with them. Which is insane…right? Also, I hate disappointing people.
Everything is a work in progress. I’m really trying to embrace the philosophy, “Done is better than perfect.” I get so wrapped up in making sure that everything is perfect and that it’s all going to turn out exactly as I planned it that nothing gets accomplished. I get stuck in analysis paralysis or whatever you want to call it and my big great wonderful ideas never get to see the light of day.
And that’s just rude to those ideas. They have feelings you know. Just ask Elizabeth Gilbert.
A new media kit! I’ve been agonizing over it for the past 2 weeks (plus two years) and I finally got so sick of complaining that I have to do it that I just sat down and did the damn thing. I’m also working on a menu of services, but for now, I’m perfectly happy with my new Work With Me page for businesses, brands, and bloggers. It’s still a work in progress (see above) but I’m enjoying it.
Well it seems like nothing new is on Pittsburgh radio right now (I keep hearing the same Death Cab for Cutie / Mumford & Sons singles every time I turn on the radio) so I decided to break out my iPod that I haven’t updated since college. Let me tell you, it’s a real treat. Florence + The Machine, Rise Against, and Katy Perry all in one playlist mix? It’s a beautiful thing.
I have no idea what to expect anymore. What about you?
