I DID IT!!!
Writing this, as corny as it may be, really feels like an accomplishment.
Now, in true "me" fashion, I woke up excited. I thought about what I was going to write the whole way to work, I thought about what I was going to write last night before bed, and as soon as I got to work..... I all but forgot about the damn thing. That's right. I literally had a wake-up moment about halfway through the day like "Oh shit! I didn't even write the post yet!" Then I got bogged down with actual work (which really eats into my Facebooking and web-surfing time) and had to then have another jolt of reality that the day was almost over, and I still hadn't written anything. So, here it is, the final project entry.
Now, I hope that even though I have finished this project that I won't have another year plus of not writing in this thing. If I do, please feel free to call me out in whichever public forum you prefer, be it on social media or in real life upon crossing my path in the street. I am just so happy to be able to say that I set the challenge for myself, and despite what the quality of it might be at times, I completed it. As someone who was never very good at mapping out and achieving goals, I am so fucking proud of myself for achieving this (non-)goal. I set the intention, and I followed through. I feel like a whole new realm of possibility has just been opened up to me, and I can't wait to see what I accomplish next.
One of my absolute best friends and soul mates is coming into town for the weekend, and I only get to see her about once a year or so at most, so I most likely won't be posting anything new over the weekend. You know how it goes with friends who have known for literally half of your life or more. You can both start giggling at the same random thought without either of you having to say a single word, you can pick up on a conversation that started 10 years ago like it was 10 minutes ago, and you can simply look into their eyes and see a reflection of who you have become as a person over the course of more than a decade. Yeah, we're like that. And she is literally the only person that has ever made me laugh so hard that I peed on myself a little bit.
But next week, look out, because you have not seen the last of me, dag nabit. I've got some creativity to do.
If you need an idea of how I am feeling at the culmination of this project, just take a look at the video above from the film 500 Days of Summer. Yeah, it's like that.
