I know you have been feeling lonely lately. I don’t call, I don’t write. I haven’t been as attentive as I usually am. I just want to say I’m sorry, and it’s not you…it’s me. I have been so busy with work and life that I have been neglecting you. But, it’s a new year, and a new me! I promise I will update you at least once a month! (Look at that, first New Year’s resolution made!) Please forgive me, I can change.
So let’s see, what is new…Well its 2014 now and in 2 short days I will be 30. Out of my twenties and officially an adult. I don’t remember much of it, but I gave a miniature speech last night during my birthday celebration that I think went a little like “I will finish my book, I will travel more, I will not care what anyone thinks about me and vow to be myself 100% of the time.” Only there was a lot more rambling and swearing and slurring mixed in there. But I meant it. I will finish my book if it kills me (which Im starting to think it will) I am going to not care what people think about me, I started on that one- you should see how ridiculous I look all bundled up to go outside in the cold. I don’t even CARE what I look like as long as I am warm. Finally, I really want to travel more. Of course to accomplish that I need to make more money, which brings me to Operation Kick Ass at Work and Get a Raise!
Operation KAAWAGAR- as I had just dubbed it, starts with me really going the extra mile at work and staying on my boss’s good side. Bonus about this is lately I have been on her good side and she keeps telling me and everyone else what an “All-Star” I am and how proud of me she is. So, just gotta keep that going and add to it. Next step is to ask a few of the partners who I have become friends with when the best time after my 6 months comes up to ask and how to do so. All in all I am keeping my fingers crossed that this will happen in two months. We shall see.
My book is slowly killing me. I want to finish it, it’s just so hard!! Even now I am sitting in Panera Bread and I should be writing my book but I’m updating my blog and people watching. Ugh… I need to find a way to stop procrastinating. I am up for ideas if anyone has some!
Let’s see what else- New York is in a Polar Vortex and it’s freezing outside! If it isn’t in the single digits it’s in the teens and if it gets above 30 I get very excited. I am a little over the snow already. It was pretty but it’s impossible to get anything done. It makes me feel lazy and I just want to stay in under covers, plus it’s hard to walk in no matter what shoes you have on. On the way here I slipped and fell- not fun.
Ok, I have an hour left here and I really need to get to work on my book. Mom, Judy- you two will be the first to know when it’s done and I will send you both a copy to edit. ❤ I am so sorry it’s taking me what feels like a decade to finish this thing. I love writing I just feel like I bit off more than I can chew with starting with a full book and when I start writing Hysteria I get ideas to write other things and my mind drifts…And yeah, I know. No more excuses. If you want to email/text me daily to remind me to write and hound me to get it done I wouldn’t blame you.
Ok- back to the grind for me. Promise to update again soon!
