Damn You Blogging Gods!!!

It's true.  Says so in the blogging codex.
Hey there.  I've been away for a bit.  I've been extremely busy getting our home move in ready.  Oh, I didn't tell you guys?!  We're moving!  I've been working feverishly to get all kinds of projects done before we move in full time.  But I degress... that's for another blog post.  I spent the last 2 hours working on a blog post.  I filled you in as to what was going on and one of my awesome Super Mario themed ideas that I was going to start working on.  And then... the blogging gods decided that my blog post was too damn good to share with the world and decided to devour it.  NOOOOOOOO!!!!  2 hours of work, gone.  Vanished.  Disappeared.  Even though there is an auto save feature in Blogger, for whatever reason, my post simply disappeared.

I tried everything.  CTRL Z, nothing.  Maybe the font color changed.  Nope.  Check the HTML code... gone.  As someone that is supposed to be writing for a living, losing a post is pretty devastating.  Especially after spending hours on the project.  I'll admit, I don't feel like writing anything right now.  Losing the post got me down a bit.  I stepped away from the laptop and then came back to pen (is that the write term for typing on a laptop?) this post.  I needed to vent a bit.  I needed to release this tension.  Usually, I'll sit in front of my Xbox 360 and shoot some people in the face in Black Ops 2.  That's usually my go to stress reliever.  But I've stepped away from the blogging game for almost a month that I can't continue to push it back.  I love writing.  I love giving my opinions.  I love giving away stuff.  lol

So, my question to you guys is:  What is your go to stress reliever?  Video games?  Writing?  Books?  Facebook?  I want to know.  When the blogging gods or gaming gods or tech gods or any other gods I may have missed, come and take claim to your project, what do you do to do move on?  So let's hear it friends.  Later!

  1. When I start to get stressed, my husband hands me the controller/gaming mouse and tells me to go kill things. Hack 'n slash sword action is often my go to at those times. As much as I enjoy reading, I'm afraid that books aren't good for me when I need to let frustration out.
