yes, you heard that right.
my first every 31 days challenge right here on gloriously ruined, is a crazy voicemail series. we’ll call it “note to self”
just like this first voice memo says, I will be including voice memos for these posts. I’ve been brainstorming this series for a while, and a hot day at the lake in July it hit me! voice memo series! I don’t know why I do this, but I love making voice memos for myself. As my current iPhone says, I’ve been doing this since October 28th, 2010. Sometimes I just have these thoughts, ya know. thoughts that need to be recorded RIGHT then. Most of the time I have these thoughts while driving. isn’t that funny? when I’m finally pulled away from distractions [aka, technology, to do lists, laundry…] I have these crystal clear thoughts. sometimes I intend for these thoughts to be recorded through writing, and sometimes they are just memories I don’t want to forget or things I want to do.
I never thought anyone would ever HEAR these thoughts, but I’ve been dreaming about finally taking the time, and challenging myself to write the stories. write the thoughts. so this month, I’m challenging myself to write every. single. day. I’ve pre-written a few posts, but most days I want to literally sit down, listen to a voice memo, and write. some of these posts might be from “notes” on my phone, and not actual voice memos, but they are all the same. things I scribble down while traveling, after I get out of the shower, or when I can’t sleep at night.
now that I think about it, I think I know where I get this from. my dad used to carry around [pre iPhone] a handheld recorder that he would talk into as we were driving down the road, or on vacation, or sitting at lunch. things to not forget, notes to his assistant, whatever it was in his world. [thanks dad!]
so this is MY world. welcome 😉
