Five years ago, my girl Cat and I decided to challenge ourselves.
Not to one of those ridiculous Pinterest squat challenges
Not to one of those doodle a day projects either
We challenged ourselves to write once a day on our blogs.
Sounds easy enough, but damn, was it difficult. And that was five years ago.
Cat and I “met” one another through Blogger several years back. I think Miles may have just started Kindergarten when she found my blog. And it wasn’t until Miles was in sixth grade that we would actually meet in person (side note: Cat gives the best hugs, her dogs are hella cute and so is her husband).
The other night we were texting and she brought up doing another round of Blogust. Could we do it? Could we make it? The deal was set- we would try to write at least three times a week. Okay, maybe two.
I miss blogging. Or writing? Journaling? I don’t know what to call it.
I’m going to accept this mini challenge because I need a place to brain dump.
Between work, college and home life- my mind is constantly swimming with To Do lists. Really, all I want is a To Don’t list. There are nights when I get home from work, that I have zero motivation to do anything. The enjoyment is gone and I must get that back.
So Day 1, in the bag.
Cat, we’re now tied.
