Don't you forget about me

I was recently lamenting the fact that I'm out of the loop on social stuff; one friend suggested that this may be because of the perception that I am always busy. Reader, I pouted.

I am always busy. I'm posting this now because I am about to post again about how damn busy I am. But before just putting the crazybusy stuff out there, I wanted to put this out there:

The social stuff is a priority too.

The social stuff is important, and it is a necessary reprieve, and it energizes me; I'm an extrovert, and so being pedal-to-the-metal busy and then spending the evening on the couch is not what is best in life. What is best in life is getting stuff accomplished then hanging out with friends, whether it's parties or dancing or just dinner out. Heroes (80s dance night) is every Saturday in August, for example, and I shall be sad if I don't get to it. Plus there's restaurant week.

So, yes. That is a prelude to this: August is full of BARCC stuff (volunteer training, speaking engagements, workshops), con stuff (Pi-Con, Arisia planning, StrowlerCon planning), et cetera. It is full of writing and back-to-school.

But I do stuff, I get a reward.

Be my reward. :)

Every single bit of this.

Also: Can I steal that icon? 'Cause, for serious.

Also stealing the icon.

Everything in moderation, sweety. Sometimes, from what I've read, you are so caught up in the many things you are juggling that I can easily see your more social side taking a back seat and/ignored for days and weeks, perhaps months at a time.

If you are "lamenting the fact that I'm out of the loop on social stuff" than that is probably so. In fact, as that is your perception of the "State of 'song", it is, in fact, the truth despite what anyone else may say or see.

Be my reward. :)

And so far, no one has commented on this.

I had noticed it, though, and I was trying to decide if I had sufficient savoir-faire to offer to be her reward without it sounding creepy. I'm still not sure.

shadesong, I'll be your reward. ;)

Hang on. I originally read that as "Am doing stuff in August, but as it is done, I get reward."

Now it looks like it might be "Am doing stuff in August, so if it is all done, rewards come in Sept."

If it is the latter, we might have to talk.

I can have continuous rewards. I'm doing stuff in September, too.
