Starting A Blog Is Hard | Blogging Ain't Easy

Update:  I am the world's worst writer. Not because my writing is garbage, but because I simply haven't carved out time to write for myself. But as one of the priests at my church says, "We are, all of us, a work in progress."

I write for work on a daily basis. The things I write about vary from day to day, month to month, but I'd say I'm not passionate about 75% of what I'm writing. That lack of passion makes my work kind of creatively draining, which in turn makes it hard for me to want to write post work.

And so here I sit, forcing myself to put something down in an attempt to recharge my creative brain. The good news is I think it's working!

I get frustrated with myself because if I spent half of the time writing as I do trolling Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat, I think I would feel a lot more accomplished.

Speaking of Facebook, I've been considering joining the whole #deleteFacebook movement. I don't know much about the whole to-do, but I know enough to be terrified of the personal information (including voice calls and texts???) that companies have access to (says the girl who chooses to publish her writing online).

I swear, I can't even keep up with myself.

Here's what else is going on, in no particular order:

  • Brendan's on a sudden health kick (not that he was unhealthy before, but he's like, super motivated to eat right, stick to a steady workout schedule, and cut back on the booze) which is helpful in keeping me on track. 
  • I'm getting married in 40 days. Holy crap. 
  • I DJ'd a job for my dad over the weekend at the Lilly Pulitzer store in Ardmore and it was actually pretty cool. You get to meet a lot of interesting people who you would have nothing to do with otherwise. A lot of my conversations started with "What do you want to hear?" and lead to discussing everything from work to education or the marketing tactics that Lilly Pulitzer exhibits. 
  • I hosted a brunch yesterday because that's the kind of person I am now. 10 minutes of Brunch @ Bobby's and I'm a Food Network star in the kitchen. 
  • I've been going to church more frequently with my mom. I wouldn't say it's because I'm supremely religious, but I will say it's a time for my to be zen, reset, and refocus myself for the week. It's also a nice hour I get to spend with my momma. 
Until later in the week (because I WILL write this week)!
