Yall. I am loving this new job, but I'm not loving how I've abandoned my blog.
For those of you who read this thing, I'm sorry...+ I love you.
As I sit in my cubicle each day, color coding my excel sheets and checking off my to-do list, I think about things I should be blogging about....sharing about. I have noticed that I don't think as deeply now as did when I was home. Now there's a bunch of new information crowding my brain and taking over my critical thinking lobe. Instead, I've been coming up with things like:
1) I could write about how much I love that I discovered Great Scott's dill popcorn, and if I had a drug addiction, I would want that to be it.
2) I could write about how last night, before we went to bed, I asked N. to pray for us. (Have I ever blogged about how N. is verging on narcoleptic?) Well, he is, and as he tucked us in and finished up his prayer, he said, "and bless this food to our bodies. Amen." I wept from laughter. He was fast asleep.
3) I could write about how Trader Joe's makes guacamole-hummus.....you read correctly: half guac, half hummus. I could die happy.
4) I could write about I got a spray tan for a photo shoot that I had, and I looked like a different person. Being super pale is a huge part of who I am, I think. Nathaniel said I looked hot, but that I smelled bad. Ah, well, you win some, you lose some.
5) I could write about how, each year for the Super Bowl, my main goal is to gain at least three pounds from eating every possible snack at a party. No really, that's it. I couldn't tell you who was playing in the Super Bowl if you gave me fifty pairs of free shoes.....it's all about the snacks.
And that's about as far as I get before my brain goes back into Type-A-Checklist-Color-Code-Mode.
Any suggestions, people? How do I maintain my artistic thought process AND have a 9-5?
