I borrowed this👆 idea from one of my favorite writers Colin Wright
I want to preface this week's post by saying this is (and always will be) a work in progress, whatever this is I am trying to do here. Hell, we can just substitute this for life and I think that sums it up nicely. It feels very much like that one particular slice of The Wrong Trousers. Except, I didn't catch the penguin and save the day, I just derailed and called it a day.
And who gave that penguin a gun anyway?
Where was I? Ah, yes.
Short version: I had a and older video I wanted to post, and pulled it in the name of privacy. Started a script for different video and realized very quickly I needed more track.
So now I am rambling and scrambling to put together something, anything.
If this is your first PINK SINK post, welcome. As we say in the biz "you're still early". And, if my preamble ramble was any indication, you probably noticed that we still very much have that puppy dog chasing it's own tail vibe around here.
The good/bad news (depending on how you look at it) is this is par for the course, but we will press on, always pushing forward... while also chasing our tails in a circle. Hopefully we don't run into the sliding glass door at full clip. If you understood any of that, you are my people.
The Story So Far (Abbreviated Ver.)
To sum up my first to posts in an always classy bullet list we have:
So, a few nice headers of what this is all about. Smush them all together and you get a life worth living, more specifically, my idea of a life worth living. This journey shared with you. (Man, than sounds so 🧀y)
It's going to be a hot mess and that's ok. It's my hot mess. I will own it. I refuse to be typecast. I'm not the _________ guy. This is whatever I want it to be.
✅ Elementary school level 'illustrations'
✅ Uncomfortable amount of emoji 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Use whatever means to tell the story you want to tell
I don't give two shits about advice on curating a social media presence
"...whatever it takes to get views"
"gaming the algo"
N to the O P E
Likes do not equal life - full stop
Just do it!
Moving forward, I have a few disclaimers and another classy list:
I reserve the right to say one thing and do the complete opposite (see experimentation).
This is not me telling you what to do, rather telling you what I am doing.
My writing style is more like my talking style, and you are just going to have to deal with it.
As mentioned before, I have no idea what I am doing.
I'm always down for friendly discourse, but assholes and trolls will not be tolerated (I firmly believe the world would be a 100x better place if people would just stop being assholes).
I will swear from time to time, but (intentionality).
I am grammatically challenged and don't know how to use a comma. I make no apologies.
Things might get weird. They kind of already are.
This list is not exhaustive.
Where do we go from here?
You let me worry about that. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
I would like to leave you today with a bit of advice:
'If you are not having fun, you're doing it wrong"
Followed by some homework:
Where in your life can you apply this?
