What I’m Reading / Listening To:
I am currently reading The Fish That Ate the Whale: The Life and Times of America’s Banana King. This is an awesome book taking place in the early 1900s. Sam Zemurray who started from nothing became one of the richest men in America all from selling bananas.
Additionally, I am re-listening to The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins which is about rewiring your brain to take action before that sense of doubt and anxiety fills your mind.
I didn’t work on my video(s) at all last week… Not too happy about that. I plan to work really hard this week on them.
A bunch of my cousins went camping over the weekend and I filmed a bunch on my GoPro. So I have another video to create.
I did not practice at all last week either but will this week.
(1) I feel like I go through these productivity swings. One week I will be super productive and get lots done and another week I will barely do anything. What makes it worse is that during the weeks I am procrastinating I will know I should be working on my projects but for whatever reason won’t.
(2) Girls really mess with me. Every time a girl I am attracted to show interest in me it takes up all of my thoughts. I begin to come up with so many scenarios, both good and bad. I tend to over analyze the situation. I start stressing out when they take too long to respond.
I hate that I do this. Maybe it’s because other than my family I don’t know what it is like to be in a relationship. I really hope it works out with the girl I am talking with now.
(3) Thirteen of us, mostly my cousins, went interior camping over the weekend. It was such a fun time, we all got along great. We had so many laughs but at the same time serious discussions about faith, spirituality, lifetime, growing up and such. I really enjoyed this weekend, I think it brought us so much closer together.
