Kevin Hellriegel's Blog of Worthless Advice

The only blog that you really want to read…or ignore.

Let’s hear all about You!


What have you been up to?

Don’t you hate that question?  Depending on the person, I always take a moment to reflect on what I have and haven’t been doing.  During this short moment of self-reflection, I have to decide whether or not I should be thinking about what I have done or what I haven’t done.  What is my mood at that particular moment….am I sarcastic? Am I excited?  Depressed?  Is the typical Pacific Northwest mood affecting me?  Is the rain getting me down?  Is my Facebook envy getting the better of me?

Today, I might say:

Well, I haven’t been posting on my blog…

Well, I haven’t been doing as much work on being a passive income (business) like I should….

I haven’t been working on my school photography business like I should…

Or preparing my business documents for my tax accountant like I should….

On the flip side, my positive outlook would make me reply in such a manner that my life is going awesome!

Well, we got our Phantom 3 drone 90% repaired!

I published two blog posts today and I’m on my way to uploading the third.

I finished the novel Doctor Sleep by Stephen King and the other three books I’m reading are holding my interest for the time being.

I’m thinking about writing a science fiction novel or even a romance novel (who careIMG_9082 (1)s that I’m not the least bit romantic…I know my book will be a bestseller!)

And today is actually sunny here in the Seattle area so I’m in a delightful mood.

So…what have you been up to my dear readers?

    Go with sci-fi. I’ve been out and about today. Now I’m getting ready to read. Such an exciting life I lead

    Don’t go romance unless it is sci-fi romance. Mixed genre is usually interesting. I have written a few perfectly horrible short stories but I won’t let that stop me from believing so I will continue writing them and maybe someday a dreadful novel. I am so good at run-on sentences that I am sure that it will be trademark. Well maybe my novel will win the hearts of millions of readers and I will become rich and famous.

    I can relate to this, and yes, I do hate that question. It’s like, “Well, I’ve been up to about 10,000 things since I last saw you, and I don’t feel like talking to you about them since you aren’t all that interested to begin with.” It ranks right up there with “What’s your favorite ________?” I don’t know. Life is way to rich and diverse to be able to simply rank things in a hierarchy.

    I much prefer to phrase these questions in “present moment” language. “What kind of _________ are you really into lately?” “What did you do this past weekend?”
