Since moving to Brooklyn, I have been ALL-OVER-THE-PLACE with my priorities and I certainly haven’t been feeling like my Type-A self. I guess it has something to do with that August itch (don’t worry, i got it checked out) of fall coming and school starting. It’s a scary thought to not have the class schedule structure in my life that I have relied on for so many years.
I considered a Billy Madison ‘back to school’ approach but frankly, I’m way too broke and I actually like post-grad life. Ifso-facto, I am setting out to find structure in my everyday Brooklyn life…something to ground me regardless of my job, my paycheck, the weather (natural disasters and all) and a slew of dating disasters.
If you are still reading this, you’re probably thinking “Why the hell is this whiny brat telling me about all her soul-searching problems?”. Don’t worry, this is a one-time deal. I am only making this entry to hold myself accountable for a much neglected priority in my life: Blogging! I started blogging as part of a class assignment and I immediately became an addict. It is a great way to keep in touch with friends, release excitement or frustration, take life a little less seriously and do what I love most–write.
Here you have it: I, Stephanie Bousquet, solemnly swear to make blogging a priority. It may be once a week or it may be twice a day. It might be really funny or it might be me complaining about the Flatbush subway system. No promises you will like it, but I do promise I’ll keep the entries coming regardless.
For now, I’m attending to some other priorities in my life; grocery shopping (yes, I have decided to learn how to cook) and the gym with my personal slave driver Jillean Micheals.
While you sit in anticipation of my next blog entry, enjoy one of my latest obsessions, Bruno Mars, as he sings about Brooklyn. Notice when he mentions Flatbush and go easy on his appearance in the video–we’ve all been the victims of a bad spray tan once in our lives.
