Trying to regain motivation....

Whew.... hello friend(s)... it's been quite a while since my last entry.... almost 2 months as a matter of fact. A TON of things happened in that 2 month period... I turned 30, went to Miami... helped Curly Tail Pug Rescue with the placement of over FIFTY (yes you read it right 50!) pugs/pug mixes in need, waved a not so tearful goodbye to the dreary winter and officially started basking in the Brooklyn spring sun..... Unfortunately some not so good things happened that really kind of put a damper on my blogging spirit; my camera broke which really limited my ability to document anything and my ipod was lost/stolen.... which just kind flucks up my whole sh*t... It's hard to do things.... anythign without an ipod....:-p

It's hard to keep up my motivation to blog. Really hard. It's kind of like the gym... once your into it you're good to go, but if you miss a few days or a week then (at least for me) then you're sidelined for a minute. But time is a-wasting and if I'm going to complete the remaining goals on this list I REALLY have to get a move on.

One thing I realize about myself is that I really do thrive on reinforcement... I'm a fairly internally motivated individual, but knowing that somebody is in my corner supporting me is EXTREMELY motivating for me. So if you happen to come across this blog feel free to leave a comment. I will LOVE you if you do :-p I think what I really need to do is find a community of folks who are also into completing/working towards goals so I can stay motivated that way. Thirdly I think I need to find a way to actually get more people to read my blog(s)... knowing that someone (other than Janet... LOVE YOU JANET) reads my blogs and knows when I'm being a complete slacker and not posting will definitely help me stay motivated to update this thing.

Whew... so hopefully I will never be gone this long again. I actually have been doing some things that I will update now (I need some information from my old computer).... the next post will probably also not be that entertaining or colorful but at least I'm back.

Love y'all!

Hey Nana

Just wanted to say hi and that I love your Blog! ALthough I have thought about doing a list of '101 things to do ' I never got around to it. After having read your blog I am very motivated to do the same. Once I am all set up I will send you my link.

Keep up the good work.

I am actually Ethiopian and came upon your blog as I was looking for a recipe. Needless to say I am super super impressed that you managed to do Nitir Kebe and Injera - VERY VERY IMPRESSIVE. Not many ethiopians have done either including myself but rest assured these will be added to my 101 list.

Big Hugs
