Did you know there is an entire history behind funks? Seriously check it out at the highly credible wikipedia.org: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Funk. While previous “funks” have inspired people to create music around their feelings it’s good to know people feel me on this one. Who knows maybe listening to funk music would have helped?
So last night I was done with the funk. I was just sick of it and ready for a change. Here’s how I got out of it: 1 project + Last Comic Standing.
If any of you out there know me, you know I love comedy however, I’m not a LOL’er. Most comedy movies (even REALLY good ones!) will not get a peep out of me, if their lucky maybe a chuckle. So my husband, Luis, informs people ahead of time of this so they don’t walk away from the movie thinking I am dead inside.
However, Last Comic Standing received not 1 but 2 full chuckles from me! Granted that was after 2 hours of jokes- but I really enjoyed it and it lightened my mood ½ way out of the funk. Next- the project. I have maybe thee most boring cube walls in my office and I decided last night that needs to change.
So I went through all of my photos (42 albums!) and picked the best of the best. Going through and remembering all of those great memories was an instant defunkifier (watch out Webster: new word!). Especially going through all of the trips I’ve been on. It was surreal remembering all the fun and random moments in the last few years.
All of this to say, if you are in a funk- get a project! One that forces you to go through old pictures is highly recommended. I hope this day finds you well and unfunky :)
And as always, thanks for stopping by!
