It's been a week and I'm already trippin'! 🤦🏽‍♀️

Remember I said I was going to start my 90 Day Summer Challenge.  My three things were -  finish one of my WIPs, eat less sugar and post on my IGTV. 🥺

It’s been a week. 🙃

I think it’s funny that the WIP I selected to finish isn’t the one I’ve been excited about writing in the last few days. 😂  Go figure.  Today, however, I’m going to focus. ✍🏽  I don’t have far to go.  I need to feel the burn and pull through the last one third of this WIP! I can do it!  🌟

I knew trying to eat less sugar was going to be difficult. 🤯  I didn’t realize how many things I ate that were sugar laced or sugar bound or just plain sugar.  As a society we are surrounded by sugar.  I have to give up my morning fruit. 😭 I only eat it when I’m in the office and that’s two days.  I’m fine when I’m at home.  But it’s the dessert thing after dinner that’s killing the mood with this less sugar thing. 🎂🍰🧁🥧🍦🍩🍪🍫🍯🍭🍮🍨🍧

The best thing I’ve done is learn how to use the Spark Camera app and post my IGTV video. 👏🏽 Let me tell you about me and Spark.  I do this allllll the time.  I did it with Snapchat.  A new app will drop, no one is remotely interested in it, I will download it, don’t know how to use it…get frustrated with it and then not use it.  Others will come along see the greatness that I saw months, or a year prior, use it and then I have to go back to learn to use it just so I can say “yeah I use it.”  That’s what happened with me and Spark Camera. 😒 They use to have two apps, I downloaded both.  I couldn’t figure out for the life of me how to use the apps, so it sat in a folder on my phone for months. Then I eventually deleted them.  Then I also went back some time later and re-downloaded it.  Now it was just one app. And now they’ve re-branded it as a way to do vertical video and edit for IGTV or IG Stories.  And because I want to dive into IGTV more than YouTube, I had to learn to use the app.  Of which I did, and I posted a video yesterday to my IGTV.  I’m way proud of myself.  I’m also kicking myself. Damn if the app isn’t easy to use.  Now, I need to think of some video ideas. 🧠

First seven days down.  And I’m making some progress.  The next seven days I’m going to focus more on my WIP.  The sugar thing…well that’s the sugar thing.

For now….

🗣 Restoration of the YouTube Beauty Community

Let’s here it for the adults in the room.  👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

Despite the fact we all want the tea, I think it was brave and a necessary move on the part of Jeffree Star and Tati Westbrook to say hey were the adults in the room, let’s stop this drama and the craziness.  Kudos to them. 🤔

It doesn’t mean that James Charles was right. 🥺 Nor does it mean he checked them.  It just means they see how destructive this behavior is and it wasn’t worth the effort to continue to go back and forth. 😩 This could have went on for weeks! 🤦🏽‍♀️

We all know James Charles is a lair. 🤭  He’s 19.  What 19 year old doesn’t lie? We also know he has some serious mental issues he’s going to need to work out.  There were warning signs, things everyone saw and chose to ignore.  The price of MONEY, FAME and NOTORIETY.  It can float to anyone’s head, and it could certainly float to a 19 year old kid who has NEVER had anything.  Especially ATTENTION. 🙃

Well that said, now maybe the Beauty Community can now heal and get back to the business of doing what they do best.  💄💋

Whew!  What an interesting year 2019 has been… 🤯

What’s next? 🤐

April - Camp NaNoWriMo

I competed in April’s Camp NANOWRIMO. My goal was to get to 40k words in the latest book I’m working on. I was at 36k when I started the camp.  Yes, only 4,000 words. I think I signed up on April 15th. I was late in the game. So, yeah 4,000 words in about 10 days. Pat on the back! I’m proud of me. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I plan to do July’s Camp too. Crazy part is I will be out town for a full two weeks during the next camp. I will have my laptop with me but I will have to really find time to fit it in. I’m thinking of writing 20,000 words to a project I’ve already started. That’s 645 words per day. 😩 I’m still toying with it. We’ll see.
