I *Don’t* Got This


If you’re like me, when the OTR II announcement came out you shut everything down, changed all of your plans, just to make sure you got the pre-sale tickets for the that September 15th show in Houston, or wherever you are. If you have no clue what I’m talking about, Beyonce and Jay Z are heading back out together like the King and Queen they are for On The Run II. They’ll be in Houston together in September and of course, I could never miss that for the world. I missed out on their first On The Run tour a couple of years ago, and I wasn’t missing this one. So I got tickets on Thursday. I pounced on that presale. Anyone else?

Aside from my excitement about Hov and Bey, here is a little honesty moment. I don’t have it all together and am not as stress-free like I said I was a few weeks ago. All the herbal tea and Soul Cycle in the world can’t handle this one. Truthfully, I have been hiding from all of the things I have going on hoping that all of my imaginary clones are going to do it all for me. Work out for me. Write my thesis for me. Meal prep for me. Teach my students for me. Be social for me. I’m tired. I don’t wanna move. I wanna sit on the couch with Willie and eat chips. I like taking on projects and setting goals for myself. Sometimes those goals are a little lofty and unattainable even though I tell myself, “I got it”, all the time. But these last two weeks, I haven’t had it. I’ve reached a breaking point. I’ve officially taken on more than I could ever handle. I’m running out of time on my thesis (yet again), and I don’t have time to do everything that I want to do. I haven’t had time to work out – which has been my stress release in the past. So I’ve had to press the pause button on many of my goals so that I can get what’s most important done; Theo.

I have two weeks (I think ) to finish what I’ve started. The finish line is so close if I could just block out all of the distractions and work. If I could transport myself to some writer’s ranch or something, I would. I originally planned to use my Spring Break to get everything done, but I was so mentally exhausted that the only thing I wanted to do was sleep and watch MLB Spring Training. No, I can never get enough baseball. Hmmmm maybe next year I’ll spend Spring Break in Tampa with the Yankees. Anyone down? Hit me up if you are.

Anyway, I know I’ve been saying for weeks that new content would be live this week but honestly, I can’t even keep my mind focused on one thing. But here’s what is coming up next week: a review on Black Up, a makeup line that I just found out about, and *gasp* I bought some apparel from Athleta so I will be reviewing that as well. For those of you that know me, you know I am Team Lululemon. But I just might make the switch…maybe…

Next week! I’ll be back!
