Parting is such sweet sorrow... (or, A November to Remember... to Forget)
Normally, this is the part where I do a creative introduction, providing both an overview and some (hopefully) entertaining quips. But, not this time. Today, I choose to be vulnerable.
It has been a tiring month, and I haven't really gotten any time for myself. Between work, life and other obligations, Steemit has taken a back seat in my ever-growing list of stuff to do. Heck, the last post I put was at the beginning of the month.
I've tried to comment here and there, trying to keep up with everything, but I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle. Tabs keep piling up, and every time I finish one, five more take its place. That's just the tip of my problems.
I feel like I'm not getting anything done.
Feels like every effort was for nothing.
No matter how hard I try.
Nothing ever seems to work...
the way I intended.
And it sucks.
So, it's time for me to say goodbye...
... to my beard.
Because I've completed the No Shave November challenge for the first time ever! At least that's one thing I finished successfully haha!
Unfortunately, my genetics didn't allow me a fuller beard, but at least I have little to no chance of going bald. So, that's good news!
My wife who was
completely opposed to fully supportive of the idea, kept asking me what charity I was donating to because that should be the only reason I should be doing the fucking challenge cheering me on the whole time. Admittedly, I did this all for myself, and it feels so good!
It might be a little win, but it's a win nonetheless. I'll take whatever I can get. Make no mistake, I'm not sweating all the unread posts that are piling up or the growing number of posts that I haven't finished writing, I just feel a bit sad I'm lagging behind on commenting and writing, but I'll be sure to get to them on my own pace. Rest assured I won't rush anything just to make a quick buck.
I know the crypto prices went down while I was away, but don't be. Down, that is. I'm back now, so you need not worry. We're going to weather this storm. Together. The trip to the moon isn't worth taking without some turbulence ;)
RIP @jedau's "beard"
