Choose Your Own [Blog Post] Adventure


I've decided that I'm tired of being my own creative director this month. It's easy to be hard on yourself when you don't feel inspired: "How dare I NOT be inspired! It is my job to stay inspired! Something must be wrong with me probably something I ate. Definitely didn't get enough sleep last Tuesday..."

I'm working on being a little kinder to myself on the days where I just NEED to watch Unreal and eat a dinner that can be made in ten minutes or less. I've read all the blogs on "how to stay inspired" and "50 blog posts ideas that are sure to be great," and if anything, they've confirmed the fact that ATD isn't a very typical blog. It doesn't fit easily into a category but honestly, I love it that way. 

So I'm turning to you for help. I've had a few topics brewing in my head and though I have begun to dive in to a few, I'm still not convinced they are ready for this jelly. Of these 3 topics, what would you find most interesting? Let me know in the comments and I'll post about it next week:

  • Why did I really start ATD -- and does it have anything to do with making money?
  • What's in my bag, real life edition (aka, last week I used my "purse" as a "rice chip holder" so don't expect any fancy lotions)
  • Why are we afraid to admit when we're sad?

On a personal note, my parents are currently on day 3 of their cross-country drive to bring Matty and me our beloved bed (YES), among other things that used to live in our Austin apartment. It's been 3 months and 10 days since we've been gone, so we're looking forward to really settling in. My mom has never been to California and it's been a long time for my dad, so we have a fun few days ahead! Malibu, brunches, and James Corden: we're coming for you. I'll be lapping up the family time while I can and joining you right back here afterward. Happy weekend to us all!
