The Business of Busy-ness / by Jamie Young

It's been a while since the blog has been up and active. I know it's cliche, but I've just been so busy. Even though I moved to LA over a year ago, it still feels like I just moved here and I'm still catching up and getting settled. 

In the past year and 4 months, a lot has changed. I changed jobs [again], which I never imagined happening so soon. I changed my schedule. I changed my habits. So, things have felt a little out of whack — good, but out of whack. 

I've been playing the hero behind the scenes for so long now (read: editor extraordinaire), that I forgot what it was like to write. I forgot what it was like to have a byline. 

But I've been given the opportunity to write some more again; and I hope I continue to get to write a lot more. Both for work and here. 

Let's be honest, "I'm too busy." is bullshit. We should all make time for the things we care about; if we care about them, we will make time for them, in fact. We need to overcome this "busy-ness" stigma. 

So, I'm just stopping in to say hi. I'm alive. Just busy. And I'm working on not using that as an excuse anymore.
