Busy busy. Feast or famine, right? I went for weeks with little to do except going to the beach, taking Milla to school, and working on some stuff I’m writing. I would apply for jobs, go to interviews, and other interim things, but for the most part, I was bored out of my skull. Then Boyfriend came to visit and we decided to move together to NYC and life suddenly hit warp speed, I decided definitively to apply to grad school at Columbia. I met a publisher who liked my work and offered me some editing assignments. My housemates have a friend who needed help in her costume shop. I have been writing pieces on Huffington Post and wanted to keep going with that. Literally, all this hit at the same time and I was suddenly buried in things to do, so much so that I felt enormously pressured. On top of it, my darling Milla went to visit her dad. He has some changes going on in his life and it will be good for them to spend some time together until I get there, but I miss her like my arms are missing. Yikes!
Anyway, life has not been conducive to daily writing on the blog, althugh I am getting writing done, just not here. But I feel like I need this as a mental outlet and when I’m not getting it, the pressure seems only to increase. Luckily today I was able to take an additional day off from the costume shop. This is a good thing because I have started to feel like I’m coming down with something. I woke up coughing twice last night and it took a while to stop. This morning I was buried in the throes of sleep when Boyfriend sent me a text message at nearly ten that woke me up. Thank goodness! I would have kept sleeping all day at that rate. My body is telling me to find a way to ease off. Okay, so here I am. Blogging to ease off.
