My people! First of all, happy 2017! I’m saying this and the year is 16 days old and this is my first post. But what had happened was… in mid-December, I went on work hiatus, cuz I was more tired than whoever Chris Brown’s PR person gotta be.
The only thing on my agenda for my vacation was to do whatever I liked, and to ignore emails. I was supposed to plan myself a beach trip but the way my meh-dom was set up, that didn’t happen. I was still on social media (because I wanted to be) but I spent the last month lazying around, having no commitments and being the bum I know I can be. No traveling, no speaking engagements, no book signings. Any writing I did was in the form of FB statuses. If you follow me on Facebook, you didn’t have to miss me.
I did spend my time in the way I wanted to.
I prayed into the new year. I turned 32. I binge-watched ALL 7 seasons and revival of Gilmore Girls on NetFlix (well, more like hate-watched). I watched some REALLY good films (Hidden Figures and Fences included. GO SEE THEM). I woke up late often. I ate too much. I bought too many pairs of shoes. I hung out with the people I love. I went lasertagging. I purged my closet a little. I had a ball.
I had a freaking ball! Not having anything on my calendar was freedom and I needed it to recharge so I can get to work and dropkick this year in the face. Also, so I could have the energy to fight and be a part of the Cheeto Satan resistance. Dumbledore’s Army gotta take naps, ya know.
I’ve done all that and now I’m back to minding everyone’s business, including my own. New posts to come, emails to be answered and all that good stuff.
It feels good to be back and I’ve missed y’all. So let’s get it! *cracks knuckles*
How you doing? How was your new year’s? Whatchu been up to?
