Before I started working my favorite part of my day was waking up to blog. That’s an exaggeration – my favorite parts of my day were sitting on my roof, playing with my dog and justifying drinking before 4:00 PM. But blogging was in the top 5. Now I feel like I never have time to do so. And that isn’t true at all – two part time jobs does not equal the end of retirement. I didn’t work at all yesterday but did I blog? Nope… I think it’s because I feel like if I write a bad post I’ll get criticism or people will stop reading. Wrong – people will stop checking if there are no posts and therefore they forget to read. And out of sight out of mind is worse than in sight, in mind and disappointed, right? I’ve never been one for outlines or goals or any of that nonsense, but maybe if I promise some upcoming posts, I’ll have to follow through with them. Otherwise, how will The Young and Retired be read by English Royalty and American celebrities and then be picked up by Penguin Books and turned into a world wide best seller before being picked up by Paramount and turned into an Academy Award winning Blockbuster?
The following are the topics I plan to cover over the course of the next week:
Dating: This will clearly have to be a whole series. I’ve only been on a handful of dates lately, and needless to say, I’m still single. But I’ve been on a lot in the past and I think it would be beneficial for myself and all of the other single ladies to dive into the hilarity that is dating in 2015. And all of those who are in healthy fun relationships can read and send sympathy.
Weddings: Wedding season deserves a series devoted to it as well. This is my first big wedding year. Over the course of the 13 months between November 2014 and December 2015 I have 6 weddings. So far they have been fabulous and all so different.
Vagabond Summer: From working in a crazy restaurant to working in a calm quiet gym to sleeping all day on a Thursday, this is without a doubt the most unconventional my life has ever been, college aside. Maybe we can analyze further what it’s doing to my mental state and how it’s helping (or not at all) my bank account and get into the plans for the future. There are big plans coming up – it just seems more appropriate to make sure the details like living and jobs are confirmed before plastering them across the WWW.
The Subway: I have some really deep thoughts about public transportation
That’s all for now – more to come. Look at this, I just wrote a full blog post about needing to buckle down and write a blog post. This isn’t so hard!! Now for the inspiration to dive into the others… I promise they’re coming if you promise to stay tuned!!
