It’s all better now…
I’ve been in a weird, semi-emo funk at work lately. It might’ve been brewing for awhile, but it’s probably come to the forefront now since I’ve been so busy handling my own responsibilities along with 100% of someone else’s job duties (a co-worker who’s on maternity leave). Seriously, yo…I’m literally doing the work of two people. While the last 4 weeks (only 2-3 more to go!) might’ve been the straw that broke the camel’s back, it’s not the root cause. Without getting into too many mundane details, I’m basically considering a career change. I haven’t gone through this in a few years, so I almost forgot how much of a mind f**k this thing can be.
Anyway, the whole point of this post is that the one good thing about going through trying times is that it really gives me a chance to write and express myself. It’s been over two months since I wrote a complete verse, and even then that was because I had a strict deadline to meet before a show. I’ve tried to write so many times these last few months but haven’t been able to do anything, which has been really frustrating. I think my decreased attention span played a part, but it was mainly because there was no motivation or inspiration.
I finally got rid of my writer’s block tonight and feel completely liberated! I’m smiling ear to ear right now because I was able to finish a full verse in one sitting, which is something I haven’t done in months. I can’t front — I’m pretty proud of myself right now. haha. Sure, I’m still looking for answers and trying to figure things out, but once again, Music came to the rescue.
It’s all better now.
