Here I am, returning from the shadows of obscurity. It’s been quite a while. A lot has changed and a lot has remained the same. That was my hipster way of saying that I’ve been running in circles waiting for the sky to fall these last few months. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had some great achievements, and I’ve had some learning moments.
First, I’d like to say that no, I’m not a recovering alcoholic (though my mom seems to think so, more on that later). That said, the term “terminal uniqueness”– which is commonly referred to in A.A.– is the belief that the situation the individual is facing is unlike anything faced by other people. Now, if I’m being honest, when I go to my mopey “all hope is lost” place, I tend to think my “isms” are soooo different than what everyone else is facing.
I mean obviously, no one could possibly understand my life. 2 parents that are still married who are unconditionally supportive of their daughter, friends that care, and a career that is gaining speed? Sheesh, the horror.
As I venture out into the world, I am reminded that my road has been traveled and I don’t have to go it alone. I’m coming to the understanding that I’m not a special little snowflake, and I’m finding comfort in the fact that I’m more human than I give myself credit. Now I am tasked with the pesky chore of connecting with my fellow humans. I’m a little rusty, but I’m working on it!
So, I’m getting back into the blogging swing of things and I have a bunch of goodies to share. I had an epic 26th birthday in October, killed it in freelance writing in terms of earnings in the last 2 months, I’m “taking pride in my appearance” (again, more on that later), and volunteering at the library. In a nutshell, I’m back! So get ready, because I mean it this time! Happy Sunday!
A little over 3 months ago, I saw the 100 day project and jumped at the chance to be part of it. Continue reading “My #100DayProject Failure”
Writing is tough business– especially when you don’t have a designated place to do so. When I’m home, wherever I try to write, I always lose focus or find myself doing some type of household chore. It’s a pain, really– which is why I go elsewhere. Continue reading “Office Space”
Sheesh, it’s been 2 years since I started this blog! I created it because I was at a crossroads in terms of doing what I love to do (writing) as a profession or to keep the status quo which was my soul sucking corporate job.
I can say after 2 years, I’ve done the former and am having some success with it! It’s not always easy or a ray of sunshine and rainbows (invoicing anyone? ha) but ultimately, I am better and happier with the change.
Also thanks for sticking with me through my caffeinated adventures! I’ve made some solid blogger friendships throughout these 2 years. So here’s to many more years of blogging and shenanigans, cheers!
This past week has been a great one! I’ve taken on some new projects that I’m absolutely excited about. I love that I enjoy the subject matter I’m writing on. Continue reading “Strategic Sunday Pt. 6: Good Vibes”
If I could offer one piece of advice to my fellow writing cohorts (or anyone with a dream/aspiration), it would be: “Don’t ever let anyone tell you what you can or cannot do”. Continue reading “Go Big or Go Home”
As a freelance writer, there are many avenues that one can take (so much so that I’d need a full day to get through it all). For me personally, I find that I really enjoy copywriting– particularly in the HR Tech sector. Continue reading “Freelance Friday: To Specialize or Not to Specialize”
I missed Freelance Friday last week– I’m sorry!
This week/end took an unexpected turn as I’ve been babysitting since Thursday evening. Needless to say that my niece, nephew and furchild Abbey have been giving me a run for my money this long weekend. That said, tomorrow is a new day where I’ll be back in the swing of things, including a summation of my hilarious adventures with my niece and nephew. Until then, I hope everyone enjoys their Memorial Day tomorrow!
After 3 weeks of radio silence, I have returned! Getting sick kicked me in the pants, more ways than one. While trying to get back in the swing of things work-wise in conjunction with trying to fully recover, blogging fell to the wayside. However, I’m here and ready for action! So here’s what to expect this week:
- I’ll be giving an update on my #100 days project tomorrow
- I have a few hilarious stories about some recent adventures I’ve been on including some Abbey adventures.
- Freelance Fridays will be back in full effect this Friday! I’ll be posting 2 blogs to make up for the missed Fridays, so be sure to look out for those!
I’m getting back in the saddle so stay tuned! In the meantime I’m going to hang out with my awesome mom today! Happy Mother’s Day for all the moms out there! Have a great day!
