I came. I saw. I made it awkward.


December 3, 2019

No post this week. I have a couple of big projects that are taking up my writing time. And plus, Thanksgiving stabbed me in the eye. Well, not literally. That doesn’t even make sense. It’s just an expression that is shorter than saying, “I ate too much on Thanksgiving and it wiped me out and I decided to just sit around for three days and procrastinate these big projects I could have been working on.”

Well now I’ve gone and written it anyway, so I should have just said that in the first place. Hmmmm…

Insert snot laugh here. (A snot laugh is when you laugh through your nose and little drops of snot spray out. It’s the opposite of a snort laugh, which happens when you laugh on the inhale. Inhale, snort. Exhale, snot. Got it?)

Since I didn’t have time to write, I spent an hour sorting through pictures trying to find one of myself looking awkward to turn into a quick graphic to post. Except I always delete awkward pictures of myself, because I am the boss of the pictures at my house.

I found a few contenders, but ultimately I decided that the best option was something more generic, in case anyone wanted to share my ingenious graphic. (Don’t even bother telling me this saying is already all over the Internet. I know, obviously. That’s where I stole it from.)

I liked my heading graphic so much I decided to make one for Instagram, too. Then I had to write all this to explain my absence, and then get everything posted. Then I felt ridiculous for posting it, so I had to check Facebook and Instagram every five minutes for validation (that hasn’t really happened yet, but I already know it will).

Looking through all those old pictures inspired me to create another fun graphic. Here it is…

It’s important to always take a selfie when wearing your bike helmet. Because nobody looks better than they do in a bike helmet.

As you can see, this graphic is super detailed and required an extra effort. It’s worth taking a little extra time to make sure I produce a quality product.

Anyway, I went ahead and made the first graphic to share in lieu of a post, since I’m so busy with these other projects.* Next week I’ll be writing on, “How to procrastinate to optimize your stress level.”

I think the heading graphic kind of speaks for itself, so no post is really necessary, anyway. Social interaction is not my bag. Anybody else feel me?
