The Low

Sorry I haven’t posted in a couple of days.

I finally reached the low. The low I was anticipating, the one that I never expect, the one that takes me by surprise every single damn time. Luckily I have good company for this one. Trying not to stomp around too much for this one. I just don’t have the energy to do anything right now, let alone write on here. Sorry. Hope everyone is having a lovely week.

Until next time…

Have You Had Enough Wine?

The answer is always no. There is never enough wine, because it is so damn delicious. Now you know, JC Stewart.

Anyway, I came across this song on Instagram just scrolling through my newsfeed, and I am really obsessed with this singer. His voice is just great! He just seems so familiar, like I know who he is, but obviously I don’t because he is over seas in Ireland of course; because we don’t have enough singers with sexy accents coming out of the woodwork.

Last Night

I have to say, yesterday was a really great day.

I was really worried that I was going to have a low day, what with it being Valentine’s Day and it being the first time in four years that I was single during it. I was concerned that I was going to have a set back. That I was going to get sappy, think about old times and reminisce over something i don’t want anymore. Because that’s what over-thinker’s do. We overanalyzed every little thing that we do even when we know we have made the right decision for once.

But yesterday wasn’t like that. I spent the day at work, which was surprisingly relaxed, and then I went out to dinner with some friends and we just talked and laughed for three hours straight. The best part was, we didn’t feel the need to document the night either. None of us reached for our phones to take pictures, to go on social media or even to answer a text we received. It was just us

It was a really good night.

Then I got home around 9:30, sat down and wrote some for my story and then just watched a rom-com with my grandma (that part sounds super lame but I don’t care). In case anyone was wondering we watched Someone Like You. Cute movie.

I’m still waiting for the moment I panic and send myself down a spiral of crazy, but for last night, it was really peaceful. And I am so beyond grateful for that. I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine’s Day yesterday.

Until next time…

Set It Up

Self-doubt sucks. I have been doubting myself for so long, I just stopped thinking I can do anything I set my mind to and I have been settling for so much in my career. I just gave up.

For the past few months I have been obsessed with this movie called Set It Up, it’s a Netflix original. It is just so relatable to now days and you know that’s exactly what they were doing. I feel so connected to the main character who is just to scared to put herself out there in the work force, afraid of rejection so she just stays in her assistant job, working for someone who makes her miserable but yet is her inspiration.

Rejection Emails

For the past month I have been sending out queries for a literary agent and it has been interesting so far. I have been updating and changing little things for the story for a while, as well as editing so it’s changing. So with each new literary agent I look into I make a note of it, and make sure to send them my updated version of the changes i made to the first chapter they are receiving.

So far I have sent out nine emails to literary agents. I have received three responses back. All rejections. Continue reading “Rejection Emails”

Rare

Rare – Selena Gomez

Recently Selena Gomez came out with an album called Rare. It is her comeback album after four years of only singles being released. I personally think it was well worth the wait. I don’t think if she had released this album four years ago that it would have turned out as great as it has. Although I think each song on this album is so beautiful, I am just going to talk about my favorites :). Continue reading “Rare”

Living Life On Purpose

I love that quote. It’s from the book I was telling you guys about in the last post, You Are A Badass. At the end of Chapter 4 she is talking about one of her clients that go hit really hard with the Big Snooze where obstacle after obstacle hit him as he ventured off on his own trying to make his dreams happen. The poor man got hit by a bus! Among other intense crazy things that any other person would have thrown their hands up in the air and said screw it! I give up! But he didn’t. And this is the part where she says this:

…setting an excellent example for his kids about living life on purpose.”
