I deleted 65,000 emails Saturday night. I feel lighter.
We had an awesome date day Saturday complete with sushi, pizza, drinks, and shopping for J’s birthday. And then we had a little Sunday Funday with brunch and headboard searching. I had a lot to work on this weekend but it was nice to enjoy ourselves instead of working.
My face. Why at 30 am I breaking out again? My skin looks worse than it did in high school. A 30-year-old with acne and wrinkles? Cute.
I’ve caught a coworker licking scabs during meetings lately.
All weekend we’ve had a bad smell in the kitchen. Like disgusting. I’m struggling with a sinus infection/allergies and could still smell it. When I started meal prepping Sunday night we quickly discovered it was the package of chicken I JUST bought at Kroger on Friday. It smelled so gross I may never eat chicken again. Anyone have clean(ish) meatless lunch ideas?
After a great date day Saturday, we were driving around and the air in my Jeep started screaming at us again. I mentioned it last week but it sounds like the raptors in Jurassic Park. It was 90 but dealing with the heat was a better option. This is the third summer in a row my air stopped working and I’ve had it fixed twice. If summer lasts much longer, I’ll be driving a new car. This girl can’t take the heat.
If you’re thinking of watching the new Dark Places movie, don’t. It was featured OnDemand Saturday night and I figured I’d give it a shot as I finished the book on vacation. Oof. Talk about secondary embarrassment!
Turning an Awkward into an Awesome:
I am somewhat embarrassed to admit that as a writer, I just paid someone $50 to rewrite my resume’ and cover letter. I used Fiverr and it took me forever to find a consultant WITHOUT spelling and grammar mistakes in their pitch. Why would I pay someone who hasn’t grasped these concepts? I admit my blog is casual, but my professional work is perfect.
So… I’m starting a little side consulting business: resume’/cover letter proofing, blog content and proofing, brand pitching, etc. I have 7 years of professional writing experience, including press releases, memos, editorials, user manuals, how-to documents, and technical documentation. If you’re willing to let me use your project in my portfolio, I’ll work for free (for a limited time). Contact me if interested!
What are some awkward and awesome things going on in your life?
