Blog Posts I Tried to Write That Never Got Finished

You guys, why is blogging so hard these days? Like, I literally sit down to write something and I can't get anything out. Ergo de Facto, that's why I haven't blogged in like, over a week. I've tried though. I've really tried. I get an idea in my head during the day so I write it down, but then when I sit down to blog about it at night I'm like, nope, actually, that was all I had to say about that. And I can't actually come up with an entire post on it. So, the following is a compilation of posts I tried to write, but just couldn't think of enough to finish them.

What To Do When Siri Hates You
I was gonna tell you all about how Siri hates me and never listens to me. "Siri, where is the nearest Ulta?" "I'm sorry, I cannot find a listing for the nearest 'all time'." But then as I started to write I ended up just whining about how stupid Siri is and didn't actually have any solutions for what to do when Siri hates you. 

My Pandora Complex: Why 'Liking' and 'Disliking' is Harder Than You Think
It's been on my mind lately how the decision of whether or not to like or dislike a song on Pandora takes up way too much space in my head. I started writing about how I analyze way too much, the repercussions of if I give the thumbs up or thumbs down to a particular song. For example: "I like this Nicki Minaj song that's playing, but if I give it the thumbs up, will Pandora keep playing Nicki Minaj songs? I only like this one, not any other Nicki Minaj songs. Do I thumbs up or thumbs down?" Or, "I really like this Justin Bieber song, but when I find out it's Justin Bieber, can I morally support giving the thumbs up to anything Justin Bieber??" But then I started to sound like a neurotic, crazy person because really, Pandora shouldn't be that hard, so I scrapped the post.

To Be a Bitch for a Day
Cause I work really hard at being super nice, and super friendly, and not hurting anyone's feelings, and considering others all day, everyday and sometimes there's a little part of me that just wants to really be a bitch about things for a day. And then I started listing all the things I would do for that day. For example: I would engage in petty Facebook arguments, I'd leave nasty grams on the microwave at work telling people to clear the time when they're done microwaving (cause seriously, annoying right?),  and when someone starts telling me about something I don't care about, I'd cut them off and respond, "I don't really care," instead of having to act like I'm interested. But then I was afraid you guys would actually think I was some sort of a bitch, so I stopped. And also, I was using the word "bitch" far too much for one blog post and it was starting to sound like a rap song. This paragraph is starting to sound like a rap song for that matter.

An Open Letter to Single Passenger Vehicles Who Drive in the Carpool Lane 
In a nutshell this one went like this: If you drive in the carpool lane without a passenger, I probably hate you. I might not hate you, per say (I'm being dramatic for effect), but I seriously loathe you. And then I ran out of things to say about that.

My Real Housewives Tag line
Haters gonna hate. Potatoes gonna potate. That's all I had...and I didn't even think of that. I saw it on Pinterest.

Other thoughts I've been thinking that couldn't warrant their own post:
I've decided that when I leave places I wanna start saying, "Peace up, C Town down."
You know, cause Carissa Townsend...C Town...that's cool right?

Question: does anyone else make the same faces as the emoji's when you're trying to pick one out? Emojis are my thing right now. BriannaKailey, and I have a GroupMe group called Rock Out With Your Emoji Out. Lots of emojis are involved. And it's glorious.

There's a file room at my work that's been converted into a conference room, so it's pretty small for a conference room, but I kind of like it cause it gives it a little bit of a Chronicles of Narnia feel to it. Except instead of stepping into a magical forest enduring 100 years of winter, I step into a conference room enduring an 8 hour work day of conference calls, agendas, and emails.

And I think that's where I'm gonna end this post. Cause I've been staring at this screen for well over a half hour and can't think of anything else to write. So that's all I got. I'm hoping that in getting this post out of the way, I can break out of this blogging funk for the rest of the week. Cause I went wine tasting this weekend and now I actually have something to blog, so hopefully it'll get the juices flowing.

'Happy Monday friends!

    Peace up C Town down (deal with it turkey)

  2. I feel like I haven't seen your blog in forever :(

  3. It's okay, we can be bitchy in our groupme and nobody ever has to know.

    Wine glasses
    Deal with it turkey
    Cool dog with glasses (what's he called btw)

  4. lol this is hilarious! i dont have an iphone that has a siri, but my MIL does and siri hated me and my accent. i wonder if she is australian in australia, otherwise she won't understand anyone! i feel the same about liking and disliking pandora songs. it makes me anxious haha

  5. Haha! I hate Siri back, she never get's anything I say right and I end up almost throwing my phone out the window, and then just typing it in like I should have done in the first place ;)

  6. This is the
    I always start a post and then realize I don't have anything worth reading to say about it.
    And you are right Siri SUCKS!
    Being bitch for a day would be glorious!

  7. Haha, you are too funny!! I've thought about doing a post like this. I have the same problem! Inspiration is so fleeting lately.

  8. You can blog about the Bikini Series challenge soon! We should do like check-ins with each other (because I can't be accountable for myself!). I did the shoulders workout this morning. Tonight, the treadmill is becoming my bitch!

  9. How I laughed at the emojis! One time my husband and I pronounced a day we could only send a text if it had more emojis than words. It was one of the best days of my life. True story.

  10. Hahaha this is so funny, and SUCH a good idea. We all have a handful of drafts that were never completed.

  11. omygosh I have the same dilemma with the thumbs up/down thing. Seriously pathetic, I just never use it because it stresses me out haha. I don't want to down an artist that I like just because I don't enjoy that particular song, it's a hard life.

    Also I love C-Town down. Do it.

  12. Bahahah... totally with you on the thumbs up/thumbs down front! I'm obsessed with making my channels perfect!!!

  13. There are so many posts like this that I have! I just end up staring at the screen unable to finish them!

  14. Nice blog..for bollywood high quality wallpaper visit
