Have any of you ever been struck with Holy Shit I’m An Adult-itus. Sometimes, it’s like a door hitting me in the face, the realization that I’m a free person. I have a car, I have a little spending cash… what’s stopping me from going out and doing things? Why am I constantly watching the same sitcoms over and over while I play Candy Crush?
Luckily, it wasn’t a conscious thought that took over when the song came on. It just happened. I felt it and jammed.
I know my posts have been hit or miss the past few days. Thank you if you’re sticking through with me.

As you can imagine, when I got home from work, playing beauty salon was pretty low on my list of things I wanted to do.

Thank heck, I can get some of that garbage out of my email so I can actually find the things I’ve starred as important. Then, I realized that email isn’t my only inbox. I realized that, if I were to truly do this challenge to the fullest extent, I’d have to do something I’ve been avoiding for over a year now.

I rely on the instant gratification. The “woo-pa-ting” of Facebook. The “blooo-wOOp” of Skype.
It was my cousin Michael who first suggested I listen to podcasts in the car.
