Millennial Update: Two Days Late
Two days late and a few bucks short — what can I say, I've been both busy and broke. By broke I mean on a budget, which is basically the same thing — and by busy I mean sick. 😷
I don't know about you guys but this weather is screwing with me! The cold, drizzly mornings, the blazing hot (anything over 75°) afternoons AND a heap of tree pollen that coats my car and desk at work is killing me. Granted, I'm sure the vase of freesias I added to my workspace didn't help, but someone made fun of my all-white roses. You don't think they're too "matronly", do you?
First off, I apologize for the delay in posting this week's BOLT⚡️. It's my intention to get back to a regular posting schedule. That being said, allow me to fill you in on the behind-the-scenes 411:
- The launch of the One Millennial's Guide podcast has been set! Guest co-hosts have been booked, equipment has been set up and the first (non-test) podcast will be recorded next week. Pending any unforeseen complications, the inaugural episode will be on iTunes shortly thereafter.
- The podcast will find it's home on OMG on Thursday. Partially because TGIT (love you Shonda!) and partially because I want to give you something to listen to that'll pump you up for the weekend. To start, the podcast may not be regular, but if you love it as much as I'm hoping, we can likely make it a bi-weekly event! It'll be like payday for your ears!
- Effective next week, the BOLT⚡️ blogs will be moving to Tuesday morning, rather than Wednesday. This will help space out some of the content so that you'll get tidbits throughout the week — plenty of sass and motivation on tap.
- For those that have subscribed to the blog, you may see some of the emails come through on Thursdays in the next couple of weeks — have no fear, you'll only hear from OMG once per week, I'm just testing some of the new systems.
- The Kiehl's Giveaway ends this Sunday! Be sure to enter (find the rules here) for your chance to win a bag full of my favorite Kiehl's products. If you want your skin to look like one of the better Snapchat filters, do yourself a favor and enter now! The winner will be revealed on a live feed on Facebook at 4:30 pm Pacific!
- Lastly, I need your help! My mission for this blog is to bring you helpful and entertaining content on a regular basis. Sick of hearing about a certain topic? Want to learn more about something that you've encountered that brings a heaping pile of anxiety and WTF with it? Or have an idea for a podcast episode? Shoot over a quick email — I'm dying to hear your feedback!
I probably should have mentioned earlier that I'm channeling my inner Rev Run and updating from a tea tree oil filled bath to try and clear up this congestion. In honor of Rev, I leave you with one of his #WednesdayWisdom quotes. (Since this should have been published then...)
"Sometimes you have to get comfortable being uncomfortable."
At first glance, it may not appear profound, but I urge you to take a few moments for reflection. In what areas are you treading water in your life? It's time to Phelps the fuck up and go for the gold boo. 🏆
Peace and Love,
