Nodding my head to a little bit of Marc Anthony’s “Vivir La Vida” I finally sit down with my favorite writers of Meetup, a group called “Shut Up, Sit Down and Write.” I open a laptop that has done nothing but collect dust for the last two weeks and stare at a New Post blank screen.
“I’m going to do it” is something I have said to myself every day since I got back.”Today is the day I finally sit back down to write”
Well, as my neglected blog knows, that has not happened.
I have missed you! I confess I returned from Cuba forever ago (about 2 weeks) and haven’t been able to fall back into my routine. Arg, me.
Why? You may ask? Well, a huge combination of things. I feel as if my week being sick right before I left and my week during Cuba was horrible for my routine but ultimately my biggest excuse is my day work.
As some of you may know, I am a Social Media/Marketing specialist. I know things. I handle social media accounts, build strategies, come up with ideas, write blog posts and evaluate stats. Oh, and I create social media images…like a gazillion of them. It’s exhausting but on top of that, I have these damn #goals for myself. Overachiever? No, its more like under-stressed-must-add-more syndrome.
Y’all, I really have missed you. Every day I look at my laptop from across the room and the song “Hello” plays in my head, just long enough for me to turn around and watch T.V.
Truth? I have been little miss lazy pile of bones these last 2 weeks. But I have a TON of updates for you and I am very excited (and happy to say) that I am breaking up with my lazy self.
I should probably pay some bills now, huh? Maybe later.
Hey, I said I broke up with lazy me, not procrastinator me.
You want to hear a funny story? So, I have not stopped thinking about writing since I stopped. I even took a notebook with me to write ideas that came to me on the plane ride to Cuba (why do I always think that’s a good idea? I just slept.)
So onto the story, the other day I was driving, of all things, and I was thinking about myself literally writing and my hands moving over the keys as I typed and I swear, it got a little steamy in my head. I started to think “you know you’re a writer when you think of typed out words as a sexy time activity.” and I laughed so hard…by myself..in my car..at a stoplight…which would be embarrassing in the 1990s but is just fine today because everyone is just staring at their phones anyways.
So, yeah, sorry if that got weird. I hope we’re still cool. But if it did get weird, I can def. tone it down..when I’m dead (it’s a joke, meant to be funny…I hope we’re still besties.)
So I definitely want us to continue this conversation but I fear this post has already gone on forever and I care about your time. If you want to continue hanging out with me and reading all about mi semana en la Havana (my week in Havana) then you’re in luck because part 2 is going to be all about that…when I write it tomorrow.
If not, how has your week been? Good or bad, rant it out in the comments below. Slay it girl.
I love y’all and I hope to see you for part 2!
