:::Day 11 -- This Is Quite Fun, Actually:::

D A Y 1 time one

Well, I'm a third of the way done with my 30 day challenge, and you know what? It hasn't been that hard. Honestly. All I do is sit down and write about my day, my life, my thoughts, maybe add a picture or two, some hyperlinks, and I'm done. I've really enjoyed this self-imposed challenge for a few reasons.

First, I like having a daily routine that is dedicated 100% to something that I want to do. Second, blogging is a creative pastime for me, and I love being creative, so doing something creative everyday is just stellar. Third, I like the fact that I'm working on something that I can see grow. If I was keeping up to date on my sidebar, I'd have a list of eleven posts now. I enjoy seeing visible progression, and adding to my blog everyday provides that fix.

Ooh, and it also fulfills my 'cross things of a list' fix. I looove that one.


Today I went to a lunch meeting at another law firm that is 3 or 4 blocks away from my office. When I walked over there it was hot and swampy outside. When I left an hour and a half later, it was less hot, still swampy, and sprinkling. Welcome to DC. The number one rule of being a Washingtonian -- never leave home without your umbrella. Here's why --

{Yay! Poor quality camera phone pictures!}

One minute, you're under a clear blue sky. Then you cross the street and you're being rained on. Literally.

And then it's over. Huh?

I don't write a lot about my job here for propriety's sake. Not because I do anything top secret, but because you just don't do that if you've got any sense about you. Also, this is my space. Heaven knows I give 'them' enough of my soul...:)

I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets a kick out of crossing things off of a list. :)

I have no idea what you do for your job, are you a paralegal?

It's funny that this challenge is coming easily to you but that blogging wasn't before the challenge. I guess we all improve when we look at things in a new way.

Doing something creative every day has long been a goal of mine! I don't always do it, but I always feel better when I do. I also love to cross something off my list, it gives me a high.

So those rain clouds just gave me miserable flashbacks about the rainstorms out there. I've been soaked many-a-time because of a forgotten umbrella. Thank you DC for teaching me such a crucial life lesson :)
