What Now?

Seventeen days ago, I ended my internship at the St. Louis Regional Chamber.

I planned on slowly releasing articles around my experience there. To be honest, I had too many experiences to group together and write about. I learned so many things in such a short time. It would be a disservice to myself and my readers to generically throw them together like a last minute high school paper.

Instead, I’m going to keep the memories as memories, and let them inspire my writing. My goal here is to add value to your life while figuring out mine.

The truth is, no one has it figured out. Seriously, no one.

But we are social creatures. We crave relate-ability and validation. We like listening to others’ stories if only to catch glimpses of our own.

Can WordPress Read My Text Messages?!?!

So… Crazy thing happened today.

I texted my cousin and asked her what her address is. Her birthday is soon and I wanted to send her a birthday card.

I didn’t know that my cousin lived in Montgomery.. I mean I did, but I forgot.

Life goes on and then I get on WordPress.

One of the first stories I see is about the Alabama corrections system, in MONTGOMERY, AL

Coincidence? I think not.

A Word Before Work

I just spend the last hour and a half deleting and marking emails as read.

Most of them come from newsletters I’ve mindlessly subscribed to, my significant other, and random updates from WordPress and Google.

It’s ridiculous how much a cluttered email inbox can stress you out.

I usually do a terrible job of checking my emails. I’m working on that.

I have been making an effort for the past few weeks to organize my information input systems.

I’ve downloaded an app called Notebook. It’s actually been pretty helpful by allowing me to have a digital inbox. I have created multiple “notebooks” for things like PDFs, Excel spreadsheets, Word documents, Business cards (yes it can capture that info), and of course I’ve made a notebook for every type of idea I can have.

This is what it looks like now:

Now, if I can just use it.

Listening to a podcast featuring Levar Burton and thought about making a career as a storyteller.

I Would like to write a book titled “Everything You Do”

Description

I am but one drop in the entire ocean. Oh child, you are the entire ocean within one drop.

Defining success is difficult. Life is like making a to-do list and only crossing half of it off. But what if you made a done list? You wouldn’t look over your life’s work and be dissappointed at what you didn’t do, because all you can see is what you have already done.
