Giving up… Not so easy!

Prompt:Today is a free writing day. Write at least four-hundred words, and once you start typing, don’t stop. No self-editing, no trash-talking, and no second guessing: just go. Bonus points if you tackle an idea you’ve been playing with but think is too silly to post about.

Free writing day… What does that actually mean? Regardless of the prompt I still feel judged and observed every time I consider posting a blog. It’s a little overwhelming given that every single person is entitled to reading it and leaving behind all sorts of comments… Wasn’t the objective of todays prompt free writing.

I must say however, I like the whole concept. I woke up this morning with a sweet craving to open my computer and just type! One issue, I had absolutely no clue what to talk about. Let’s face it, we all just want to keep people interested. We don’t want to be boring and for the most part we don’t want to be criticized. That’s what makes it so simple to push your blog post till tomorrow and next week. Eventually becomes never which I can completely attest to.

Today I wanted to talk about so many things, one of which was how I became a flight attendant! Yes, Im a flight attendant.

I was in college working at a reception hall doing great all across the board. Sure things could have been a little more simple but life runs you into many obstacles. For years I’d dedicated week days to school, weekends to work and every other minute to Tyler. I was so comfortable in my shoes change scared the crap out of me. After a really long boring lecture and countless hours of research my brain couldn’t take one more google search. I dragged my mouse to the top left “X” on my google tab and that was that. I was calling it a night. Procrastinating was my forte, (still is actually) Facebook was calling my name for a little down time!

Now, I can be really cheesy and say “That’s when everything changed…”  or “I wouldn’t see my old life again” but lets just stick to “I had no clue what to expect”. I saw an add on the right side of the page, clicked it, sent in my resume UNEDITED and moved on with my daily rituals.

WOW. Three Hundred and ninety five words! Well, here’s the buzz kill.

If you’d like to continue reading about how I became a flight attendant leave a comment bellow or follow my blog!

  1. Hi there, I do think your web site could possibly be having internet browser compatibility issues.
    Whenever I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however,
    when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Besides that, excellent website!

    Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up. This website is one thing that’s needed on the web, someone with a bit
    of originality!
