Your Mid-Week Update for 01/29/20

The most successful people are the ones who are not only talented in their field but most importantly, the ones who care about what they do. The ones who are passionate; even if they don’t take it home with them, they are excited to start their day because they get to go back.

I think everyone needs one thing in their life that they geek out about. It’s so fascinating when people suddenly go off on tangents about something they’re really knowledgeable in and want to share that with you.

Now I’m not talking about gatekeeper culture or man-splaning (which are concepts all of my children have taught to me at one time or another) but loving something so much and trusting someone else enough to share that love.

Of course, for my geek-ed out passion, the people I can share it with are anonymous readers on the internet, my husband, and my husband’s daughter that I’ve taken under my wing. Which means that when coworkers ask you what you do on the weekends, you lie through your teeth and say something stupid like “my husband and I are in a bowling league”.

Long story short, James and I joined a bowling league with Carl from sales and his wife who has the squeakiest laugh I’ve ever heard. I’ve never bowled a day in my life.

Next time, I need to say something that is less of a group activity. Because now, my Saturday’s are taken up by driving down south to a mid-morning bowling league and occasionally grabbing a drink with the “gang” afterwards.

I love what I do but Jesus Christ, it might not be worth it.

So anyways, I stabbed someone who looked a lot like Carl and threw him into a ravine because Carl doesn’t deserve a burial. The fact that it wasn’t Carl took away a lot of satisfaction from me but that passion needs to go somewhere.

I guess we’re bowlers now. Whatever that means. And Carl’s still alive so things aren’t the best right now.

At least I didn’t say “golfing”.  

As always, dear readers,

Stay Safe
