writer’s block

it seems like in the past few weeks i’ve had more opportunities than ever come up for ways to continue to focus on writing. but i find myself banging my head against that proverbial brick wall in trying to come up with something interesting to write! geez.

wow, two weeks without a post! my poor blog is being neglected…

the past few weeks have been crazy busy, but in a good way. and talk about “in between jobs!” i swear, i must be a poster child. my most recent job at the law firm was working out great but they weren’t able to give me full time hours so my temp agency was filling in the gaps for me.

enter random job #2 – ballot prep for the elections. yup, i’m gonna be helping out on election day (working a 14 hour shift!) helping to make sure all those votes count! (you’ve voted already, haven’t you?) i actually feel pretty excited to be helping out in such a historic election, but the pay was great too. =)
