As I was reading and catching up on the endless amount of your blog posts I need to read, I finally realized that I needed to pop out my own blog post for the day. See… I have a problem. When holidays or vacation time hit, I’m probably one of the worst bloggers about staying up to date with blogging. On the one hand – I think that’s great! During those times I choose to live in the moment, enjoy time with family and friends, experience life and take a little “technology break” I guess you could say. On the other hand – I miss out on what’s going on in blog land, I feel behind on my blog, I get too lazy to re-cap half the things I do because I take forever to re-cap them and I’m sure my blog readership suffers because I don’t put as much effort into blogging.
I just read this post from Life of Bon on Why Blogs Suck and I’d have to agree with just about all of it! Check it out!
I have a dreaded to-do list for today:
Create BHB Matches (Sorry, I also fall behind on responsibilities during vacay!)
Create a Media Kit in preparation for Blog Elevated
Decide on what/where to print my business cards for the blog
Clean my room
Apply for at least 5 jobs
Write this blog posts and hopefully a few others
Decide on Sponsorship
I really need to complete all of that by 5:30ish. At that time, I’ll be embarking on a wonderful bike ride with Kathryn and it will more than likely be the highlight of my day! I went on a bike ride last week and had to stop for some of these views. The water was peaceful, the weather was windy and comfortable. It was perfect alone time!
I went to Atlanta for the weekend with Nick and stayed with my Aunt and Uncle. It was a wonderful trip and I look forward to re-capping that this week! Who doesn’t love a 3 day weekend? Well, if you don’t… you are cray-cray! I can’t wait to share some of my great finds from the weekend – one of which almost had me pee-ing my pants!
My half-marathon training is going pretty well! I did miss my long-run this weekend (seriously… vacations throw me off something terrible, I just get lazy!) I’m back in the saddle though as of yesterday with a short and easy 2 mile run and my x-training today. Seriously… 66 days left!! We have to book our hotel like super soon! Then again… I really need to find a job like super soon…. sooo….
Yeah, the job search. Still hate it. I may possibly get to start a part time job that can turn into a full time job this week and that’ll be really helpful in the financial department. I’m getting a little depressed sometimes because I spend a lot of time at home by myself. I will have a post soon though talking about how I’m fighting that depression and things I’m doing to keep my spirits lifted! It’s still a huge struggle though. It takes a lot of effort to not lay in bed all day, watching tv, while working on my laptop.
How was your Labor Day Weekend? Did you do anything exciting?
Any tips on fighting depression during frustrating/tough situations? I’d love to add your tip and blog info into my post!
Are you training for any big races soon? How is your training?
