Getting rid of that iPhone neck

My iPhone and my iPad are killing my neck these days!  All these micro-movements are adding up and I’m shoulders are rounding out and getting that ugly dowager’s hump.  Gross.  So I found a few exercises to help counter that:

Talk Therapy

It’s hard to find time to get anybody’s attention these days.  Let alone try and captivate and keep their attention.

So I’m resorting to writing online.  I need some kind of outlet to express my feelings, insecurities, hopes, dreams, and discoveries.

Lately it feels like I’ve been there for everyone having problems, but there isn’t room for me and my needs.  Right now my biggest need is finding a pleasant place to work.  I’m willing to wait six months while I babysit for a friend of mine.  I like babysitting, but I’m so stressed about finding a job that I can’t concentrate and be in the present with my charge.

If anyone has recommendations/suggestions for job searches, cover letters, or using a vision board, please let me know.

I’m hoping this blog will help me process my thoughts so that when I talk to people I can efficiently express what I need from them.  And right now I can’t even bring myself to tell them that what I need from my friends is someone to actively listen.  Paying a therapist is good for the complicated issues, but sometimes I want to share my opinions without alienating others.  I see my friends at least every other day, which I am so grateful for, but like I said in the beginning of this post is it’s hard to hold their attention.   Oftentimes they feel the need to problem solve and will throw out some advice to me and expect that I’ll stop talking.  It makes me feel awful, like I have no right to complain, or express my frustration.

Getting it done

Not much to report other than still decluttering and getting my to do list done.

Dinner with friends and kids.  Super fun and rad.  More errands afterwards, including grocery shopping.

And that was my Friday everyone.

 

Seven days of blogging

Writing for seven days.  It definitely aint Shakespeare.  What I’ve written so far has been nothing.  No thought, no planning.  It’s a start, and I’ve given myself a month to get into the habit of writing.

There are plenty of resources out there to start writing more substantive work.

Time is so limited these days, that you’d like think I wouldn’t waste time on weak words.
