The One Resolution I Kept and Enough Links For The Weekend

by Alex Iwashyna

in Reading & Writing Elsewhere

The only stick man I’ve listened to is the lazy one:

Lazy New Year's Resolution

But the one I made Leigh Ann worked this morning.


Why is her stick man more yell-y than my go-to-bed one? They’re playing favorites. Lazy favorites.

When I’m not doing what I should be doing but at least learning to do what I don’t need to be doing, I’m becoming more popular by reading and writing elsewhere.

My Other Hangouts (don’t tell my blog):

I didn’t write anything this week, but one of the things I want to do in 2013 is figure out more ways to be supportive of our Late Enough awkward community. Some of y’all email me regularly but the rest of you don’t so:

  • If you have a Facebook page for your blog or business, leave the link on Late Enough’s Facebook page, on this post on the FB page, or in the comments below.
  • I still love Twitter (@L8enough), and if you are still chatting there, I’d love to follow you. I’m culling people who aren’t using it anymore, and, if I accidentally get rid of you while were merely resting during the holidays, yell at me.
  • I have blog advertising, and it’s cheap for small businesses and bloggers. (My blog is way more popular than I am anywhere else by the way.)
  • I have my round-ups on Fridays and my weekly newsletter has a round-up as well so if you have a post you wrote/read and love, please send it my way. I’m only one person so I miss many great reads. It might not make it every week, but I will definitely check it out. (

General Yelling Stickman: While I’ve had fun making the stickmen for freaders, Lillian suggested I make a general one on Zazzle that anyone can use so I did because I’m very susceptible to suggestion. It’s only $6.95 and is customizable. Oooh and one thing I did do this week.

Favorite posts I didn’t read, I mean, write:

Oh and the quote of the week is from a book I feel like I should’ve read years ago, but I was busy in 2004. However, one of my resolutions is to read more this year, which means I have to read 2-3 books per month in 2013. I also realize this resolution directly conflicts with my resolution to go to bed. I think my original stickman is laughing between the yelling.

Okay, on to the quote:

“Power, time, gravity, love. The forces that really kick ass are all invisible.” -David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

Thanks for the stick man, dudette! I want to read Cloud Atlas too. That and Life of Pi. I’m majorly behind on books.

I am buying my stick-man right this second. Waiting for the old paypal to load. Can’t wait. I am going to write in my 2013 mantra: BE BOLD. BE PURPOSEFUL. I might have to write outside the bubble, but that will just be more awkward like any stick-man of mine totally would be. Also, he yells so loud he bursts his own speech bubbles. How do you like them apples? Pretty awesome, right?

I hope he gets here soon.

Holy crap, woman. I didn’t even realize you’d linked one of my blogs in your weekend round up until you mentioned it!!! Forgive me, I’ve had the flu. A million bazillion thanks!!!! :)
