*Clears throat as crowd applauds wildly*
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, it is time that I compose the post that EVERY blogger, vlogger, or anyone who gives other people information inevitably posts.
Quality VS. Quantity.
I swear, EVERYONE has posted about this and given their verdict. I'm just another discussion post in a sea of *ponders because she has no idea how many people have actually written this post* hundreds. In fact, this post should just be re-titled, "My Two Cents" because how many people are actually going to read about this common topic?
There HAS to be a reason so many people post about this
It's because EVERYONE goes through the times when they have EVERYTHING in the universe raining down on them, making them figure out what's important
Let's face it.... I just started one of my most important grades and the hardest I have ever gone through. My mom recently passed away. My brain is going through a heck of a lot of extra processing. It was hard BEFORE to get everything done in the day.
|There aint no way that gon' happen.|
I have to admit.... I have felt a bit down and out at times when it comes to trying to balance school, homework, friends, blogging, reading, and (hopefully soon) vlogging.
|I swear.... this is how I feel at the start of every day|
|And THIS is how I feel at the end of every day|
So I've come to terms with this simple fact.... I won't -no matter how much I try to be superwoman- get ALL of the things done. So instead, I have to accept how much I actually can get done with the hours of the day I have. Most of the time, this has meant that I have had to sacrifice blogging for other things like eating and doing homework. (By rule of thumb, these generally seem like things that have to be number one priorities)
Yet now.... something magical happens when I do have time to sit down and compose a post filled with oodles of rambles and randomness.
I have been so much happier, satisfied, and proud of the content I have been producing. I have been !!!excited!!!
|Some may even say electrified|
Passionate and Enthusiastic about what I'm writing. That Evangelical zeal for blogging that I had had in the beginning of it all has returned.
|I no longer feel obligated, like "UGH, I need to write a post for today."|
I instead feel like, "WOW. I get the honor of composing my insane thoughts to share with people on the internet today!"
So there you have it.... my two cents on quality versus quantity in hilarious GIFS (If I do say so myself). What seemed like a curse -not being able to blog as frequently- turned into a blessing that brought me back to the reason I started in the first place. In no way is blogging my actual job (yet you don't know HOW much I wish it was), and I had been putting as much pressure on myself as if it were.
I will see you soon (hopefully, though I make no promises) with another passion-filled post.
