I've done a piss-poor job of posting decently lately, haven't I? It's been with good reason. I'm burned. out. Not so bad burned out that I don't care about anything at all and I'm just sitting at home in my underwear on a bean bag eating Cheetos, but I'm just...done.
Over the past year-plus, I've put a lot of effort into various professional and personal endeavors, and all that effort going out and not a lot coming in is wearing on me. For example, right after I did my big presentation in Miami a couple of weeks ago, I had to come right home to a project deadline as well as the deadlines for presentation submittals for two different conventions/symposia. I didn't even get a chance to sit back for a while and just enjoy having done something awesome--it was backtoitbacktoitdostuffkeepitmovingdomorestuff. Now that all those deadlines are behind me, it's come to my attention that I really need to take the summer off from a lot of my commitments and just enjoy being.
Now, believe me, I'm not going to stop blogging (and tens of cheers erupt from the blogosphere!). But I do need to cut back on some of my obligations...and then not feel guilty about cutting back. So, I'm going to enjoy the 4th of July weekend with some wine, friends, beanbag chairs, Cheetos, arts and crafts festivals, and general laying aroundness. And I recommend all y'all do the same. I'll be back next week with some interesting news and goings-on at Design Associates--see y'all then!
