OK, I admit it. I am a liar. It is hard for me to come to grips with that but there is no other way around it. In my last post, I promised my loyal readers (if there are any of you still out there) that I would post in the next day or two. That was six weeks ago. And that came after the grand announcement that I would be posting again regularly like I had for a year before the MTVTJ competition and all throughout that competition.
Well, what has happened since then?
As most of you know, I placed fourth in that summer thing and then spent the next two months trying to figure out what I was going to do with my life. I finally accepted a great job with U.S. News & World Report in Washington, DC and, yada-yada-yada here I am today.
What can I say about the past few months? It has been over six weeks since I started my job and I have nothing bad to say about it. It truly has been a great experience and I have learned a ton from the start. The only thing that I can say I dislike about a normal work week is the fact that I don’t have the time I used to to update this blog. It is such a great feeling when I can open up my CMS and start writing whatever comes out of my head. You guys may not always enjoy the stuff I write but it is such a moment of zen for me to be able to spill out in this way.
Seriously, not too many things can top a little solitude, some Pandora (the Kid Cudi station is my choice by far) and my blog. Honestly, right now I can think of only one thing that may top this. That would be some oatmeal, my soft shoes and a marathon of the Golden Girls.
Unfortunately, my soft shoes are nowhere to be found, I have no milk for my oatmeal and I can’t watch Golden Girls online since I’m using my laptop to blog. Huh, well one out of three isn’t that bad. Plus, Golden Girls makes up for soft shoes or the oatmeal – or maybe both. Hell, Golden Girls is like watching a great show while eating oatmeal in soft shoes.
I guess you know where I’m going to be for the remainder of the evening. Until next time, I bid you adieu.
QUESTION: Is there one television show you could watch all day every day?
