Time runs differently during Gishwhes week.
You get so caught up in creativity, kindness, utter sillyness, that other things blur into the background. I’m working full-time this year, so I only have time to complete items in the evenings. What’s more, I’m the Boatswain (aka Submissions Manager) for Mutiny in the Impala, which means that I carefully edit and approve each item before uploading and submitting it to the Gishwhes website.
Don’t have your own submissions manager? You should.
What’s the point I’m trying to make? Well, simply that I had a lovely post in mind to go up yesterday, all about making other people smile. But, quite simply, I forgot. After uploading my team’s submissions for the day, I was sucked into a detailed photoshop item in which I’m adding extra limbs and tentacles onto a photo of ScarJo. And that’s okay!
Long story short—this week is flying by. Make the most of it. Enjoy yourself. Have fun. Remember to eat your veggies (except the k-word) and stay hydrated (except with ice) and live in the moment. Do your job as a team member…but most importantly, don’t lose sight of Gishwhes itself. If you aren’t having fun, you’re not doing it right. So even if you forget to write a post for the blog you work for…well, at least ScarJo got her bionic arm gun thing, right?
