This week’s themes: Creating, Finding, Switching, Forgetting, Craving
Awkward: I’ve been feeling a little down this week (it was an off week) and I realized too late that one way to pull myself out of a funk is by creating something. So I shredded some paper instead. It was enough that I felt like I did something and it was still actually doing something that I have to keep up with. So I guess it wasn’t too bad.
Awesome: I want to create a little shop like Harvest + Bloom or Nicole Antoinette – a collection of eBooks that are a few dollars each. But I don’t know what I’d create. I could probably find something to do for my social media services site, but I have no idea what I’d put together for here. What would you want to see?
Awkward: I’m finding it hard to find the time to work out. I know it’s important and I feel better when I do, but it’s so hot to run outside (don’t you dare ask me to get up earlier to run before the sun comes up. It just won’t happen) and I’m not super interested in driving to a gym and being inside when it’s so nice out. I have a friend (y’all know Marissa, right?) who does Barre and I’ve been doing Pilates. I should just suck it up and drive to a class more often.
Awesome: I’m finding that it’s easier to write the awkward categories this week than the awesome ones. We all have cycles. And I’m trying to embrace the cycles (that’s the awesome part of this…surrendering control).
Awkward: I’ve been trying to find the best place to work, so I’ve been switching up my work environment. That means I have to pack up every single possible notebook, colored pen, and scrap of paper with ideas scrawled on them lest I forget something, rendering the work session useless because, “OMG HOW could you expect me to write without my Favorite Writing Pen?? I just have my Good Idea Pen and that CLEARLY can’t be used to write deep thoughts!!”
Side note: How adorable are these Emily Ley Pineapple Paper Clips? It’s kind of an extravagant purchase, but so cute!
Awesome: Along with that, it is pretty rad that I get to decide where and when I want to work. So I’ve been trying different coffee shops, bars, even on the porch at home and it’s awesome.
Awkward: Ugh, I’m forgetting everything. I’m at the point where I’ll walk into a room with a cup of coffee, remember something I need to do so I walk out and leave my coffee unattended and forgotten for hours, then suddenly realize, “I didn’t finish my coffee!” I end up with 8 half-drank cups of coffee all over and barely any caffeine buzz.
Awesome: Hmmm. I don’t know what’s awesome that I forgot because I probably forgot it.
Awkward: It’s “that” week for me, so I’ve been stuffing anything in my mouth that’s not nailed down (phrasing). I want to eat ALL THE THINGS. Especially sweet/salty/crunchy things.
Awesome: Summer means I have been craving some time in the water, like on a boat or at the beach. Who has a beach house I can visit?
