Learn Through Action

Social Media Detox Project: Day 8

I had a bit of a “down” day today. Nothing bad happened; it was just a Monday, and a reminder that I’m still in my day job, and probably will be for at least another year. During this time, I’m paying off student loan debt and saving.

I have goals, at least, but I feel a little impatient sometimes. I’m ready to dive headfirst into full-time writing, music and content creation NOW. I don’t want to wait.

But, tough shit, right?

I need to make wise decisions. Once I take the leap, it will be an enormous challenge to make a living, so I need to be in a good financial position in order to have that buffer.

I still don’t know what I’m doing with this daily blog, if I’m actually reaching anyone, if the likes I get are just from bots.

But that’s okay. This daily blogging is mostly just for me to prove to myself that I can commit to a project for a month straight.

And I like to think I’m learning.

Just gotta keep taking little actions each day.
