Phew! I’m glad it’s the weekend. Last week was a busy one! I spent a lot of time running around trying to fix mistakes. At first, I thought they were my mistakes, but it turns out they weren’t. I did everything I was supposed to, I just doubted myself too much to call other people out on their mistakes. I should have more confidence in myself, it would save me a lot of extra work. I worked from home some this week too. I’ve had a lot of writing to do. I’m working on a grant proposal and an article on sleep. Grant writing is agony, but the article is kind of fun. Not as much fun as the A to Z Blogging Challenge has been so far though!
It was kind of a last minute decision to join, but I’m glad I did. I have met some fantastic new people! I’ve got a bunch of new follows. *Waves Hello* Some of them have commented everyday! I really appreciate getting to know you through your comments. I share interests with some followers too. I’ve met artists, writers, cat owners, fellow grad students, mental health sufferers and advocates and people who appreciate the same things I do. I’ve got some silent followers as well…..I appreciate you guys too!
Through comments on my blog and the A to Z participant list I have found all sorts of new blogs to follow too. The list is huge! There are over 2000 blogs on there! It’s kind of overwhelming when you start scrolling through it. I started by searching with the command F function on my Mac. I searched using words of things I like. For example “cup”, that led me to find all the blogs that had cupcakes, cup of coffee or teacups in their titles. I also searched using mental health terms, drawing terms and cats.
I have been having a lot of fun coming up with something for each letter and researching the topic a bit. I’ve learned a lot. So far, A to E has been easy, I’ve had multiple ideas for each letter, it has even been hard to decide on just one! I’m a little worried about the end of the alphabet though, it just gets harder the further you go. J and K are next week, eek! I know a lot of the medications start with weird letters, so I could always use those. I haven’t had any experience with a lot of them though. I could research them for you, but you could also just look on Wikipedia. I don’t know, what do you think? Is it more interesting when there is an opinion or some personal experience in with a post?
I know, what does this have to do with anything? Nothing, but I mentioned cats once in this post, so here’s a doodle! 🙂
