If We Were Having Coffee – Exhausted, but Happy, and Even Writing Poetry

  1. Sounds like you did have a really busy week! Glad that it sounds like a productive one for you, even with the hiccups.

    I left grad school in December because I was having similar feelings about what I was doing and wanted to be more creative, and although it’s been a struggle (and continues to be), I’m way happier. Good luck following through on your passions and in whatever you choose to do!

    1. Thank you. Since I have been writing I have been way happier and I just want so much more of that. I have gotten greedy and my day job isn’t providing the same good feelings I get from writing and being creative. Good luck to you too :)


  2. It can be really hard to balance those artistic ambitions from when we were younger with the reality of being a grown-up… so hard to do, but totally worth doing what needs to be done in order to make it a reality!
    Thanks for the coffee — time to get to some of my writing!

    1. Yeah sometimes being a grown up suck. I wish I could go back to my younger self with the mind set I have now. I would be so much further along now. But I have to try to do it now, I am hoping it will be worth it in the end.

  3. “The plan was to only have a couple of drinks” Oh the stories I have that start with that statement.

    I hope you can find a balance with your work work and your art work. Enjoyed the coffee.


    1. Every time I go out I tell myself “only a couple of drinks” and every time I have way more than a couple. I know am just lying to myself and myself doesn’t believe it for a second.


  4. I’m exhausted too and I haven’t been out drinking…or out…or drinking! I’m just old! But seriously, I think it’s the weather, or the long winter season or something like that. It seems that no matter how much sleep I get, I can’t get enough!

    Keep trying to find some time to write. If that’s what you love doing, then find a few minutes. Even fifteen minutes a day. Maybe sit alone during lunch at work and write? If you take public transportation to/from work, could you write then? Give it a try…even if you only make enough time a couple of times a week. It’s better than no time!


    1. I agree about the weather! I feel so much more tired in the cold. Finding time to write is becoming on of my biggest frustrations in life. I work with friends who want to hang out all the time so finding a way to tell them I need to be alone without hurting their feelings is hard. They are trying to be understanding though. Thank you for reading :)
