So remember when I said that I needed to find reasons to brush my teeth and leave my home office more often? Well, I wasn’t just writing that so I could tell you about a three year old’s bad breath. I was serious about getting out and about. I started with a lecture with CreativeMornings Austin.
Now that I’m in Austin and back to full time freelancing, I guess I’ve been taking advantage of alone time I can get now. My world consists of my bedroom, my office, the mailbox, and the playground down the street. It was so needed after the constant interactions I had to deal with in NYC. I’ve been reveling in it, actually.
But maybe too much.
So a while back, I made a decision to socialize more in person with my various communities than online. It easy for the computer savvy geek in me to limit my interactions to tweets, posts, and likes. But I also believe that forgoing in person connections makes PJ a dull girl. So I push myself to make public appearances when I can.
Note: Yes, I made up the word “un-quit.” So what? I like it. I think I’ll use it more often.
