I could be a horrible brat. The way I'm feeling right now, I could be the brattiest brat in the world, but I have other things to do. I can write. I can use my platform and just vent a little bit. I mean, yall are my people and I think you enjoy these random spots of insanity, as long as I keep them to a minimum.
My week has been special, to say the least. I've been called names that I have not earned, one of the guys teaching my training graduated from the same high school I did, I thought something was going my way just to have it (seemingly) snatched from me, and my frustration with life has just hit a new level (too much to explain and probably too personal for this space).
Even though this has been my week and I've had solid reasons to have some pretty epic tantrums, I have somehow managed to not be escorted out of the place I work or go into a fit of rage while driving. But even in this madness, there have been a few bright spots - I was able to have lunch with one of my favorite people, I was able to pick up a part time (paying) writing gig, and I was able to turn in some freelance work for an online publication. Nah, not giving details about the part time or the freelance just yet, but know that I am very excited about this. I mean, how can I not be excited because I get to write?! However, this does lead to a bit a news....
Remember those short stories I was going to start writing and posting? Well, those are going to have to go on the back burner right now. Not saying that I will never come back to them, but right now, I just don't have the time to devote to them. When it comes to my writing, I'm not saying that it has to be perfect, but it has to be at least something I wouldn't mind reading again in a few years. If I don't have the time to make it really good, I'm not going to post it. Maybe this just isn't the time in my life to do those and should be kept for me to see right now. Yes, I have already written a few.
So, when I look back on it, even though this week has been horrific (to me) in some spots, I am still very much blessed. Tomorrow, I plan on having a blast with my friends in the afternoon and totally rock out during my business meeting tomorrow. My agent expects nothing less, so I have to give the people what they want.
Maybe I'm just in need for a pretty solid weekend. Well, if that's the case, just bring it!
How was your week?
