  • What day is it? 
Who am I? 
What even is life?
.
Guys, I've been working for the last 12 hours straight.
.
Ok I did have a thirty minute lunch break.
.
And I'm gonna chuck in another few hours after dinner.
.
So much work! 😭😭😭
.
I'm fully booked up until the middle of June.
.
But I still took on a new last-minute project last week.  And a few clients all submitted their content almost at the same time, which never happens.
.
So I spent twenty minutes this morning just planning out the rest of my month and what sites I will work on each day. . 
Now hopefully clients play ball and I don't get sick and I can stick to the plan. Plus I need to say no to any more last minute jobs! .
Oh, and family is visiting from overseas plus freaking Easter! So I gotta make up that lost time on days like to today. .
But I'm actually super happy, because work is flowing in and I'm working with some lovely clients on creative and gorgeous sites! And I get to do it at home, in my pajamas, whilst watching Bob's Burgers and eating those white candy chocolate Easter eggs.
.
How do you plan and make sure this doesn't happen to you?  I plan, but can never stick to them.  I'm obviously planning all wrong.  Please send help!

  • VIDEO GAMES! 👩‍💻🖤💣🎮
.
I love them. .
My family were lucky to have a Nintendo cartridge console for the tv and a gameboy when I was young.
.
Endless hours of fun.
.
Do you remember blowing out the cartridges when they weren't working properly? 😂
.
And you couldn't save your game!  Wow.
.
My mom, brother and I would sometimes spend the whole day playing Mario.  Taking turns to play so that we could try and finish the game.
.
I have been seriously considering getting myself a Nintendo DS, but they have a pretty hefty price tag. But I really want one 😭😭😭 I'm trying to save up to buy some land so I really can't justify the spend.
.
I will have to settle with cellphone games for now.
.
Do you game? What's your favourite?

  • Hi 😊  My name is Amy.  I'm friendly and awkward and love meeting new people.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can talk for hours and hours and conversation flows fairly easily for me, especially when chatting to lovely people.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The other day I had a Skype meeting that lasted for over four hours and it could have easily gone on longer!  That's what happens when two chatty people get to chatting.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My mom always said that I had verbal diarrhea. Haha. A true affliction for me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I get together with a couple of old friends we literally stay up all night talking.  Every time.  It's the best!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • The Moon.  Luna.  Selene.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌙⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love the moon.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Staring at it calms me down and helps me to focus.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can literally spend hours just staring at the moon and letting my mind drift until it is still.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Interestingly, the moon has long been associated with insanity.  The word lunatic is derived from "luna" the Latin name for the moon. Ancient philosophers believed that because the brain consists mostly of water that the moon must have influence over it like it does the tides.  This belief helped Western culture create stories of werewolves, and the belief that the moon influences our very beings is still around today.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In ancient Greek and Roman mythology the moon was female and the sun male (Luna/Selene and Sol/Helios). This must also have something to do with the belief that the moon was associated with madness.  Women are commonly the "insane" scapegoats of various things throughout history.  The association of women with madness is still pervasive today.  Don't even get me started on the word hysterical.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm going to leave it at that, because this divergence will easily turn into a long essay about patriarchy.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Back to moon. Back to calm.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Mist and trees! What a combo!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This reminds me of living in Hilton. Looking at this picture makes me miss the misty days. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Drizzly, grey skies with the edges of the world fading out into the mist.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ah! It's beautiful.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Everything is so green and lush with ferns everywhere and leafy beauty at every turn. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What place do you miss?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • This caption has nothing to do with the picture.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I stared at the blinking cursor trying to think of something interesting to write. Something that also had something to do with the picture. Because of course I chose the picture, decided it was about time for another Instagram post and then scrambled to write something.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
First thing that came to mind was something like this:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Be like this grass and keep growing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cheesy hey? 💩⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, is that even grass in the picture?
.
Did you scroll back up to check? Lol. I did.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Coming up with valuable content is difficult!  Copywriting is difficult!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Aaaand that's enough rambling from me.  Hopefully you stuck around reading this for long enough that The Algorithm thought I was being useful and it shows my post to more people. If you're still reading this then thank you! 💙💙💙💙⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
