OFFICIAL BLOGGING HOURS
November 5, 2006
When friends whom I haven’t seen or heard from for a while ask me how I’ve been doing I almost always say that I’ve been busy, not busy bad, but busy good. Between my nearly full-time day job, my part-time teaching gig and Trinidad Junction, I have little time left for the small stuff in life, like lazing around and doing nothing, one of my used-to-be fave pastimes.
Still, I couldn’t be happier with the way things are panning out right now. I’ve ditched my old, slightly impatient attitude for a brand new, slow-and-steady-wins-the-race outlook. If I can’t get to something during the week when my days are full, I wait until the weekend when I’m able to dedicate more time to the issue. I now have “Trinidad Junction Office Hours” too, thanks to my sister. She suggested that I designate specific hours during the week to everything Junction and stick to them no matter what because I was beginning to spend every second, from the time I got home from work till just before bed, working on the site with poor Dan sitting right next to me. I know, it’s completely pathetic. Trust me, I didn’t like it, but I was so driven, so obsessed with making the site the best that it could be, that I was blind to everything around me. I wasn’t eating (thanks for cooking D.) and falling asleep was hard to do too because my mind was always on TJ mode. Thank goodness things have changed!
Earlier today I was at Mile 12 of the NYC Marathon where D.’s band, Shank Bone Mystic Project rocked the socks of all the runners. It was mostly awesome. I’m completely pooped from all the pre-marathon decorating and cheering so I’m SO ready for a nap. Getting up at 7:00am on any other day than a weekday is just not cool! Plus, all this typing is making my eyes heee—aaa—vvvvvvvv—yyyyyyyyyyyyyy……
More blogging in a couple hours when I wake up!
