Ain't No Hollaback Girl

That's me...a no hollaback girl.   

Since I've been in Colorado I have been really, really bad at keeping up with friends and family, which isn't very usual for me.  Normally, I AM a hollaback girl, and probably more so than some would like!   

I could give a pretty lengthy string of excuses like...I was trying to get settled in and find a job.  Or, I now have a job, but I'm still settling.  A really good one is the two hour time difference.  There have been plenty of times I've reached for my phone to call someone in D.C., only to realize it's midnight there.  (I know this hasn't stopped me before - you recipients of a few 4 a.m. calls know who you are!)  

Oh, and then there is the ol', "she/he is going through finals right now and I don't want to disturb them," excuse. 

I also feel since I have been so neglectful, the list of people I owe calls to and the amount of information we would need to catch up on is just overwhelming.  As a side note, this is why I started my blog and am keeping it up.  I can tell everyone at once about what's going on!  (Another excuse?)

Excuses, excuses.  They're real, but not acceptable.

So.  I am going to start trying very hard to be my old hollaback self.  Starting this week I am going to do as Gwen Stefani says and "put my pom poms down" and pick my cell phone up. 

Watch your phones...they're gonna start blowin' up!  haha...

I know EXACTLY how you feel. I hate, HATE! talking on the phone, though. Not good.

Tell our mutual friends hello for me!
