Sometimes when I sit down to write, I feel like I have to come up with excuses as to why it hasn’t been sooner that I’ve updated this blog. I try to write something every day, whether it is public or not, but lately, my reasons for no words have been pretty weak.
“I’m just not inspired right now.”
(aka: “I’m lazy.”)
“There’s nothing to write about!”
(aka: “I’m really ridiculously lazy, and probably lying.)
“The Rachel Zoe Project is on!”
(Well, actually, this one might have some merit. Maybe? Riiight?)
Most weeks, all of these are absolutely ridiculous. I’m always inspired by even the littlest things, always find something to write about, can save Rachel Zoe for a rainy day, and my schedule is usually pretty balanced with time to spare.
This week, however, I’ve been actually BUSY!
Not that this is a bad thing or that I’m trying to make up for anything, but I legitimately thought that after Spring Break, my life would be cake, right? (Preferably red velvet, actually.) But, of course, there’s plenty more projects, papers, scripts, interviews, quizzes and tests to be studied and aced, along with internship applications, job fairs, resume edits and somewhere along the line, hopefully a snocone or two now that the hot Texas weather is upon us again!
Am I complaining? Not a chance!
As much as I want to surrender my afternoons to naps and could major in procrastinating if I tried, everything I’m involved in is worth it, whether it’s difficult and time-consuming or not. Plus, my schedule always seems to find time for a little friendship, and for that I am so grateful. Even if it’s five minutes discussing the Golden Girls personality traits, an extra cup of coffee in the morning with my roommates before I go to class, ten minutes laying in our porch hammock and talking on the phone with my dynamically wonderful parents, all of it is needed!
So when I’m busy, I’m still typing up sentences for all of you who happen to read my little corner of the internet. And busy or not, this lion needs her pack. Finally, I mean, when I’m able to fit in meeting Friday Night Lights celebrities and scoring a slam-dunk with a killer Chicken Parmesan recipe, I really have no excuse not to have a huge grin on my face…even if my to-do list is a mile long.
