Thoughts from the Mind of an Uninspired 22-Year-Old

September 16, 2011

Despite the fact that today has been an excellent day so far, I’m struggling with a bit of writer’s block.

Actually, this is something that happens on a weekly basis, I’ve just failed to mention it for the past year and a half.

Some days, I swear I could sit and write post upon post upon post filled with pictures and clever sayings.  And sometimes I do do just that (and save them for later!).  But other days, or in this case, other weeks, I feel like I really have nothing to say.  I’ll scroll through my pictures and sometimes realize I’ve taken a total of 5 all week. 

This has most definitely been one of those weeks. 

Seriously, I’ve struggled all week with things to say.  And one of my posts pretty much wrote itself!

I guess I could have written about the pedicure I just got with Hannah.

Wish I could remember the name of the color!  Something to do with blackberries?!

I could have written about the dream I had last night where I got black out drunk and ended up in jail.

I blame last night’s episode of Jersey Shore, which I watched right before bed.

I could have written about my new desk chair!


I love the way it contrasts with our grey walls and gives a pop of color to the room 🙂

Plus the purple chair circa 2000 (or maybe before??) was looking a liiitle old and, well, purple.

I could have mentioned the fact that I skipped my run yesterday in lieu of the misty weather and took myself to yoga instead.  I felt AWESOME.  Why don’t I go to yoga more often?  Oh yeah, because it costs money and involves driving for 25 minutes.

Or the fact that I was so hungry after my run this morning that pancakes (or anything that took more than 3 minutes to assemble) was out of the question.

RIP Pancake Friday.


Smoothies are best sipped in red desk chairs.

I could have written about how I went to Borders today, hoping to get some crazy cheap books/movies before the store closed today.  Only to arrive at an empty store.  Talk about cleaned out!

It was actually quite depressing.  There go my dreams of ever being Meg Ryan in You’ve Got Mail.  If Borders can’t make it, Shop Around the Corner probably won’t either 😦

I could have told you that I’m currently obsessed with Valerie by Amy Winehouse and equally obsessed with Get Good by Vanessa Carlton.  Both of which play at work.  <— It’s sad when your taste in music is based on what’s being played in a coffee shop…

Oooor, I could have written about the meals I’m planning for next week.  Curry, chili, squash, pumpkin spice syrup. 

I’m especially excited about that last one 🙂

And one of those meals might involve silken tofu.  I’m scuuured :/

Okay, I guess I did have a few things to write about.

I’m off to do some of this.

Happy Friday!


Do you ever struggle to come up with something to write about?

How do you combat writer’s block?

What are you doing on this lovely Friday??

    I just painted my nails like the exact same color! Very fall appropriate. I haven’t even had time to crank out a post in the last couple days…and if I had they would have been quite dull and lacking photos. It happens! 🙂

      Well now I feel better. It always seems like you have plenty to write about!

    Yesss, I go through writer’s block! Not so much anymore because I feel like “anything goes,” but still…you’re not alone 😉 Either way, you were able to kick some writer’s block butt tonight.
    I am excited for your pumpkin spice syrup! Love the polish color, too :]

    I’ve also been an uninspired 22 year old lately. Your blog has been keeping me entertained for quite some time, your writing is just so easy to read! Don’t worry about the writers block, it happens and it will pass 🙂

    I get writers block a lot, too. Then I usually just post a bunch of random pictures and call it a day.

    I love the color you painted your toenails with! 🙂 Its the perfect color for Fall!

    Your new desk chair looks really cool! Makes me want one just like it 😀

      I know, if only it had actually tasted like it had any alcohol in it at all. I know what you mean about writer’s block…
