I apologize to Heat fans everywhere… I couldn’t help but think of this title as I was writing today’s post. Maybe you’ve never experienced this, but some days I’ll get to about 7 p.m. and be so wore out that nothing else is going to happen. Regardless of whether or not anything else should happen that day. Yesterday was one of those days. I got home from the Iron Yard and was immediately ready to call it a day. Some time around 8:30 I have woke up suddenly realized I had forgotten to publish a blog post. I thought about getting up and pulling one together (because I do intend to hit the publish button every single day) but I couldn’t make myself do it. I reasoned with myself that writing that post wasn’t something that would really solve anyones problems. It wouldn’t make me sleep better, I was going to sleep well regardless. It just wasn’t important enough to me right then. The post wasn’t going to happen. The sad truth (well, I don’t know about sad, but its the truth) is that most of my days are virtually identical. I wake up. I go to school. I come home I go to bed. I wake up… You get the picture. For this season of my life, till I finish the rails course at The Iron Yard, it’s ok. That is the schedule that I signed up for. I’ll do whatever it takes to make it through this. But there are times, and yesterday was one of the, when my brain just says, “enough is enough, sit this one out…” I did go to bed a bit earlier than normal last night. This morning I felt a lot better because of it, and tonight marks the start of a hackathon that I’ll be needing to be a part of. Here’s to not doing things – as long as it doesn’t mess with other people’s lives (too much). Seriously, if your mind/body/soul says to sit something out and if it doesn’t hurt someone else’s life… at least consider taking a break. I can guarantee that Lebron will be back and just as good as always… P.S. One of my classmates is going to be posting interviews with everyone in our class… The first one went up today – You can find that article here.
