Yes, I wrote the title write...I mean right? Oooh, that could get addicting. Well, do you get it? Computer....bytes? And then it really means bites? Oh screw it. You either got it or you didn't...and I'll never know anyway. It was just a goofy silly thing I felt like doing. I feel silly even explaining it. You're not supposed to explain jokes. I'm not that great at telling jokes. I forget stuff...and I'll say the punchline too soon. I really love a good joke teller. The ones who keep you on the edge of your seat, you want more, their inflections and tone pull you in...and then you're laughing your ass off. I need some good laughs right now.
So...do I sound angry? Sad? Well....I was a bit more angry and sad than usual last week. I've managed to come down a little...which I'm very much relieved to say...and feel.
Social media bit me a little last week. I got a good dose of "I think you need to put shit into perspective Rebecca?" And..."I think you better call on Mental Girl and start taking your own advice, because you next book is all about...." I know! I know!
I took some shit personally. I got hurt by social media "friends" or followers or whatever you want to call them...and I just got fucking sad. I thought they were nice. Well, some of them are...actually most of them are...but there are some....and I got spooked.
It's OK. I processed. I'm working through it. I'm taking a little break from it to cool down and work on myself. Deep breath.
I actually did manage to have a great weekend. I got stuff done. I got organized. I got productive. I had some exercise. A lot of exercise. I aired out. I'm pleased.
So now what? Well..I'm going to take a few more days...just to get my power back...and then I'll go in with a more conservative approach. I came to social media to connect and relate and help out when and if I can. I'll still do that. I'll take a dip in from time to time to see if I can catch some smiles and silliness.
I did a podcast this morning.
And of course...I still do some silly videos and post pictures on Instagram.
So that's pretty much it...at the moment. Oh wait! The book. Yes! I've been working with my editor on Mental Girl book 2! And it's coming. It's looking great. I'll give you some inside information. It's about surviving the internet. Interested? I think it should be good. So stay tuned....
