Monthly Archives: August 2014

Yep, getting one’s crap together after so many years of nothingness can be frustrating. Rereading recent posts might be more depressing if I had unrealistic expectations about how easy/simple this was going to be. Sure I’m a bit frustrated, but I’m just going to keep hammering away at the thick walls of my social, emotional, and creative prison until I break free. I’ve been feeling a bit run down the last few days and obviously haven’t posted. While I didn’t make much progress on any front, I did at least get a Facebook page created for the RV site. The […]

Four more days lost and little to report.

On August 11, 2014 Robin Williams sadly added himself to a long and constantly growing list of talented but tortured souls Who have either deliberately taken their own lives or suffered tragic deaths due to various types of drug addictions. As someone who also battles depression, I get it…. but I don’t get it. Our minds can be simultaneously incredible and downright incredibly frightening. For better or worse, we look up to many of these celebrities and often envy the lives they lead, thinking they live in perfect worlds filled with money and fame. The reality is that most of […]

If Robin Williams had nothing left to live for, why ...

Rome wasn’t built in a day. Mile by mile it’s a trial; yard by yard it’s hard; but inch by inch it’s a cinch. The race is not always to the swift, but to those who keep on running. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. Unproductive days produce the need for motivational quotes, lol. I would have to say that that best thing about yesterday was that I felt I was at least fairly productive at the day job. Our back room is a giant cluster f%&* because we took an extra truck last […]

Not a banner day for accomplishment

I shouldn’t be, but I’m still amazed at how quickly time passes. Another week without a post or any effort put towards my online projects. πŸ™ Have I mentioned that time management is not one of my strongest attributes? πŸ™‚ At least I was thinking about posting for the last several days, and hopefully changing the not so Daily Journal format will help me with that. It’s blatantly obvious that I need to remind myself to get some things done, so instead of just providing a recap of what’s happening, I’ll be posting daily tasks/goals to accomplish and reporting on […]

Life goes by so quickly – don’t miss it

Each and every day, I find it difficult to be as productive at work as I need to be. As an assistant manager for a national variety store chain, my job is pretty mundane and repetitious. Personal pride should lead me to do my best every day, shouldn’t it? Well, it doesn’t. I’m not terrible at my job, just terribly average. Even though it bothers me, it apparently doesn’t bother me enough to motivate me to put more into it. The part that bothers me most might be the fact that my doing an average job can put more of […]

Productivity, perpetual procrastination, and a pesky pup

Okay, I created this daily journal section of the blog in order to help me hold myself accountable for making progress on moving forward in my life’s endeavors. I haven’t posted anything in this section in 8 days. That’s not much of a “daily” journal, now is it? Perhaps a standard format for journal updates will help me out. Lord knows, it can’t hurt. πŸ™‚ Naturally, this is subject to future tweaking, but here is the format I’ll use to get started: Quick, or occasionally not so quick, blurb about day job Update on other activities of the day, if […]

Figuring Out A Format To Help Create Momentum

Baby Steps – Pulling Things Together Will Take Time Well, not having posted anything in a week is a bit disappointing. As discouraging as it may be, I simply have to remind myself that this is a process and will take some time to create positive, productive habits to replace the unproductive habits in life. Every day is a new opportunity to do something right. Finding a good balance between the regular job, internet work, and everyday life is definitely a challenge for me. Eliminating many of my time sapping, brain draining habits Will be an ongoing battle. Frustrating as […]
