August Break Photo Challenge 2012

Now that schools out, I really have nothing to do. I don’t have any assignments that I have to complete nor do I have any projects that need attention. Nevertheless, this busy bee that is my inner me won’t let up. I’m so used to being required to complete some sort of task that I almost feel as though I need to be doing something even though I have nothing to do. It’s funny–I always complain about how tired I am, when I actually am, but yet I don’t just.. rest. Knowing how to rest has become so foreign to me.

So, I’ve decided that I’ll do both. I’ll rest and I’ll remain productive. I’ll work on my design portfolio, apply for a few freelancing positions, and rest.

I’ve also been researching how I can monetize my blog since I’ll be laid off sometime in between this month and October. And to be honest, it’s so confusing and I have absolutely NO idea where to start. You know, sometimes Google has entirely too much information for my liking.. if that makes any sense.

    Well I know I’m in need of a designer even though I can do it myself, I would love to revamp my website before the baby comes. So when you start working on your design portfolio as well as prices let me know so I can check it out.

    I feel the same way all of the time! I do nothing but work, take care of the kids and run errands. But the moment I have free time instead of relaxing I find myself doing unnecessary things, trying to keep myself busy.

    Good luck with your portfolio! I’ve been working on mine for months and even when I have the time, I just don’t always feel up to working on it more.

      And good luck with yours as well. It seems like we both need a little motivation!

    Just came across your blog..the monteziing on blogs is a little tricky..there are a lot of options but kind of hard to find. i would start with a google search to see what you can find. but i know blogvertise is an easy one. Good luck!

    Rest? Are you writing in a foreign language because I don’t know what this word means? LOL! I guess we get so use to rushing and doing things all the time until it becomes our normal.

    Rest..that is something I have had way too much of and although I try to stay busy I’m never busy enough. As far as monetizing your blog have you thought about selling ad space? I’ve seen a lot of bloggers buying and selling spaces and it seems to be quite lucrative if you get the right people to buy from you.

      So, I’m not alone when I say I don’t really know what rest is, I see. LOL!

    Not resting much either. My mind races and duty calls with the little one. Like now as I respond to this post in the wee hours of the morning. I was actually laid off 8 months pregnant. I am still trying to figure out what my next move will be. I am so afraid my search will be as long as my last one. Good luck!

    It’s so hard to truly rest. Your mind is always racing, isn’t it? We think, there’s always something you SHOULD be doing. Hope you get some rest over the next few weeks!
