You may be wondering why I didn’t finish the March Photo-a-Day Challenge or you may know me well enough to have expected this outcome. Here’s what happened.
We got to Day 15 and hit a snag. See, Day 15 was “Car”. I considered this throughout the day but could not come up with anything worth sharing. Then I got discouraged and quit. Lather, rinse, repeat – the story of my life. If I’m going to put in the work to succeed at something, I have to really want it. It’s why I graduated second to last in my class at Bible College (because someone beat me out for the very bottom spot) but carried a 3.8 in nursing school. It’s the reason I read only one of the assigned books in my C.S. Lewis class and then read all of them the following summer. I’m obstinate (my early childhood ed professor was convinced I had ADD and/or Oppositional Defiance Disorder), I don’t handle authority well and maybe I’m just snobby enough to not bother with things that don’t interest me. Mix in the depression and other assorted mental health disorders and you have a perfect storm of QUIT.
So I’m picking up the Photo Challenge again but I may not do every single one. We’ll see. Here is the April Schedule from Fat Mum Slim:
Today’s photo is “Mail”.
These are the contents of a package I put together to send to my friend who lives in the computer (her computer is in Chile). Funny thing is, I set out to mail her some coffee LAST AUGUST. Don’t worry, each time my mom brings me more coffee (every other week or so), I replace the bag I’m intending to ship so it’s fresh. And that “Very Late Holiday Card”? It’s one of 150 that I addressed and never mailed LAST NOVEMBER. I’m thinking of doing a “Christmas in July” thing because what else can you do with last year’s holiday cards?!
