personal pet peeve: people who are always ready with excuses. “I’m so busy”, “I got hung up on some work stuff”, “kid is sick”, “there was family drama”… I could go on all day. Bottom line? We’ve all got the same 24hrs/day and our own reasons – doesn’t make it ok/good/worse than anyone else. Spend more time doing, less time excusing is what I like to say.
sorry for the random rant. Let’s move on..
Seriously? Honestly? NO excuses.
I let myself down this week (I had some cool things to make/share this week that aren’t getting done) – and FYI I am aware that I have high standards and most of the time I am actually quite content with what I do.
Here’s my thing: Better to have high goals now and then and stretch, than to sit complacent and never reach at all. You know?
But this week? Not so much. I’ve been WAY too unfocused this week. Getting lured into hours of on-line surfing (ugh. hello time kill) and just being, well, unfocused! Can I blame the full moon? (just kidding – like I said… no excuses!)
speaking of ranting have you seen the “Tru Blood” at stores? I saw it being sold for $7. Um, people, who is paying that kind of cash for a blood orange soda? I think it’s clever to package soda like the blood drink on the show and all, but unless that’s some kind of awesome/organic/best soda ever made infused with magic weight loss formula that’d make me drop a dress size by morning… NO CHANCE I’d pony up that kind of cash. If I wanted to pretend to be a blood sucking vampire (um, ew) I’d make my own brew or use food coloring on sprite or something. geez.
Enough from random land!! I’m off to email the (chosen randomly) winners of the random boxes ‘o fun from my studio + fun mail… if it’s not you this time? Stay tuned. I have lots of ideas!!
I hope you have a fantastic day- have I mentioned you’re looking fabulous?
I’m feeling frazzled and out of whack myself. I will spare you the details. But I do want to tell you that I am taking the weekend off – I will be back to resume regular (hopefully non-vampire and lame post filled) blogging. Questions answered. Projects shared. Ideas. Fun.
Edited to add: I just looked over my blog postings for the last week and… well they don’t seem so bad/lame/awful/people are going to run away and never return as I thought. Score one for me? Perhaps I just felt that way because my brain knew what was SUPPOSED to have gone up? Maybe. Who knows. Will stop typing. Now…
