With family in town, some of my daily habits went out the window for a few days. I’m trying to get back into a routine sooner rather than later.
I miss having entire days at home to do whatever I please. I miss reading, writing, blogging, and dancing.
My body’s internal clock has been thrown out of whack as well. I’ve had to adjust, adapt.
I’m looking forward to catching up. More like I look forward to being caught up.
I have a lot of ground to cover. Still, I wouldn’t change a thing. I have no regrets. I can’t remember the last time I dropped expectations of getting work done and allowed myself to just have fun.
I feel thankful that I have the freedom to live such a flexible lifestyle.
Even though I do the same few things almost every single day, no day is exactly the same.
I can’t predict the future. I don’t know what tomorrow has in store. Let’s just say I’m always excited for new adventures.
Even the simplest activities can be a blast with the right company.
I need to live my life. After all, many stories are born out of new experiences. That said, I’m ready to return to my old routines.
Going forward, I will try to push myself. Instead of stopping out of laziness, I’ll challenge myself to go a little further.
Maybe I should’ve titled this post “What Not To Do When You Lose Your Work”.
If you’re new around here, (though you probably aren’t) the Herminia Chow blogging style book states: every word is capitalized in a title because she’s too lazy to follow any other rule.
It also states: punctuation comes after the quotation mark when part of a sentence, again because she’s too lazy to observe any other rule.
Maybe one day I’ll publish a post with all my rules. So you can laugh at how incorrect and lazy I am. But at least I’m consistent in being incorrect and lazy.
I’ve digressed because I rather not think about how careless I was.
And surprise, how lazy I am.
I’m usually good with saving my work anywhere and everywhere. I don’t believe you can ever save a draft too many times or have the same draft in too many places.
But this time I had one draft saved in one place. The application froze and when I went back on it, I lost all the work I did for an assignment due this Thursday. Safe to say I had over half of it done. All those hours of work gone in a few seconds.
Life’s fun and funny like that.
So naturally I panicked. And in my state of panic, I told the whole world. My mom. My dad. My best friend. My professor. That’s pretty much my world.
Could I have spent all that time redoing my assignment? Of course. Did I? Of course not.
Let this be a lesson to always save your work many times and in multiple places.
Don’t be like me. Don’t be lazy. It comes back to haunt you.
Unfortunately school starts soon.
Fortunately that should mean I’ll be more productive because I have to get into a routine. Or I’ll be less productive because I have to go to class every day of the week.
Can you see how hard I’m trying to be optimistic but then my realistic side comes out?
So you can either expect better content on this blog or less and a lot worse. Don’t get your hopes up.
My laziness levels have reached all time highs. Productivity is at an all time low for me. I speak the truth.
But that being said, I still love this blog. And the future of it looks just fine.
That’s optimism ladies and gentlemen, a rare occurrence on here. Cherish it while it lasts.
Pick one social network you’ll use to help grow your blog. Then, outline a plan for how you’ll use it.
I have several social media accounts. And I fail at using all of them.
Although I want to start posting picture prompts on my Facebook page, I’ve been pushing that off because photography isn’t my strong suit.
Also, I’d like to do more writing tweets over on Twitter, but I don’t want to spam anyone’s feed.
So in typical Herminia fashion I’m making excuses to excuse my laziness.
I have a billion pet peeves but
five four pretentious ones. The last one not so much. It’s a legitimate pet peeve if you ask me.
- Slower than normal internet (waiting ten seconds for a page to load is too looong)
- No WiFi connection (especially when I need…uh, when I want it most)
- Computer crashes/freezes (caused in part by my opening too many tabs)
- Fast battery draining (get it together phones, iPod shuffles, and tablets of the world)
- Blatant spelling errors (resulting from laziness, carelessness, and did I mention laziness?)
