Thursdays and Fridays.

Today in my teenage angst, I had trouble logging into my blog. It had been almost six months since I'd done it and I forgot what my log in email was. I got a hot flash of anxiety and started thinking about how I was going to probably have to build a new blog. I immediately considered the benefits of this, but ultimately how much I didn't want to do it.

Luckily, Blogspot is built to deal with this kind of problem. I got in, and quickly made my gmail account a contributor. The real problem is that I made this blog before I had a gmail account. I find this reality to be astounding and a little upsetting. I've been blogging on Today in my Teenage Angst for eight years. In that time, my blog I've graduate from college, moved across the country, moved back from across the country, gained two neices, remained exorbitantly single, run three half-marathons, graduated from college again, moved out of my parents house, and decided upon a profession.

I'm just not sure how much you've heard about any of that. I'm bad at consistency. I'm bad a follow through. Do you know that I have a YouTube channel? Do you know that there's a segment in it called Today in Top 40, in which I analyze and promote the merits of Top 40 music, because I love love love Top 40 music? No; because I haven't told you. And maybe part of me doesn't want you to know. But the rest of me really does.

I typically work less on Thurdsays and Fridays. I rely on these days to be alone, run errands, do laundry, cook, etc. Life sustaining things. A lot of times, though, I just end up watching tv. So I decided I could probably do to devote these days to a little bit of work as well; content creation, to be more specific, but sometimes crafting, or writing a recommendation letter, or reading a book on the secret joys of buraucracy written by the person who coined the term The 99%. The cover is so pretty guys.

That was a several weeks ago, and this post is the first use I'm making of my Thursdays and Fridays. I guess I'm telling you about this so that I have some sort of accountability. Not that I think anyone is actually waiting for some sort of word from me on Thursdays or Fridays, but that is neither here nor there. I can do things, and I want to do them. So here I am.

Here's a photo from a concert I went to last night. I do not want to talk about the Say Something cover I heard and rolled my eyes at, or the hardcore cover of Taylor Swift's Trouble that I actually loved. I would rather the effort and love that went into those paper hanging things.

The aim is to see my time as something that is worth using, and not just sit around thinking about whether or not I have enough time to sneak in a nap.
