The other day I decided that I need to go on a personal retreat. It feels like there's a ton of exterior noise preventing me from becoming my best self, which is a phrase that must be trademarked by Oprah. There's so much to do, so much noise, and so much measuring up that everything feels chaotic, complicated, and pretty defeating. This list doesn't include pop up ads or Twitter parties, both of which are pushing me over the edge. It's times like these when I want to give almost everyone the bird.
