I may or may not have made this post title using inspiration from one of my favorite comedians Chelsea Handler and her book, “Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea.” Great, funny read. A little racy, but a good laugh. Check it out sometime.
I just want to take some time today to fill you in on what’s been happening in my life, i.e. why my posting has been so sporadic and even non-existent at times. I truly hate being away from the blog. I have so many ideas swirling around in my head, so many big plans for this space, and just, frankly, things going on that are taking precedent or not leaving much time for me to create content. Not all of these things are bad — actually, I should say none of these things are inherently bad. It’s just different, and I need to work on finding a schedule that fits my life right now. A groove, if you will.
If you must know, when I typed the word “groove,” I definitely had a groovy mental tune playing in my head and did a little dance move in my chair.
So, where to start. Ugh, and yes, whenever I wrote “start” the very first line of “Do-Re-Mi” from “The Sound of Music” popped into my head (“Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start…”). Did you know I played Maria in my HS’s version of that six years ago? Well, now you do.
The beginning. A few weeks ago, things got a little crazy at my part time retail job and my hours were bumped up by a lot. I was happy to help out (and make some money, truthfully), but I was also simultaneously starting a full-time job as a legal secretary. No, that’s not in my field. Yes, I’m still looking for jobs elsewhere. And yes, my current job knows that. They’re wonderful.
Basically, for the past month, I’ve been doing my 40 hour weeks plus my part-time job right after, leaving little time to do anything else except wind down and watch the previous nights’ The Tonight Show while I eat
some a lot of chocolate at 10 pm. I don’t mean to sound like I’m complaining because I am truly grateful that I do have two jobs right now when some people can’t find one.
Two jobs comes at a good time, too, considering I just got this:
Meet Vivian (Viv for short) the Volvo. She’s a gorg 2007 Volvo s60 that my dad happened upon because he was in the right place at the right time. He has very good karma… good things happen to good people and all that. Anyway, she’s mine, and I love her, even though I have to pay for her 😉 I don’t really know anything about cars but according to Amanda this is a good one.
Hmmm ya. So I’m working a lot, driving my new car around a lot, and on the days when I have a few hours off I’m either at the yoga studio, with my family, or hanging with friends (which admittedly, ins’t a lot). I wish I had more time to put some love into this space because some things are in the works (aka a redesign… it’s happening slowly but surely). Until then, you’re stuck with the old N4L experience, and I’m going to cut down my posting to Monday, Wednesday, Friday with a random other day here or there just to make my head feel a little less boggled. Hopefully by setting this goal for myself, posting will feel more manageable.
I’ll be back on Friday with a new “Nutty For…”
Questions of the Day:
>> Have you ever had a period in your life that left you feeling overwhelmed?
>> What is your favorite job you’ve had? Hopefully what you’re doing now 🙂
