How to Manage Multiple Creative Projects | this is a cry for help lol

Time Stamps: 00:00 Welcome to the episode! I’m going to talk about juggling creative projects so naturally, I start off by lecturing about the harms of bath bombs. 01:48 Mmk, now I’m describing my current issue: my brain is not functioning. I’m tired, uninspired, and have excelled at becoming a sloth in all aspects of my life. This has made it hard for me to be creative and get anything done. I’m also v stressed lol. :) 04:43 To remedy this, I have (accidentally) set up a creatively packed November for myself. It will be a lot, starting with National Novel Writing Month where I will write 50k words in 30 days.. 08:29 ...and working on Angus Eye Tea’s Christmas special…while doing weekly podcast episodes. 10:30 ...and finally, a Mystery Life Project. I can’t talk about it (I know, sorry!) but just know that a) it’s boring, b) it’s frustrating but, c) it will make me happy in the end. 12:36 Here’s how I’m going to survive this month: First, streamline the basics of my life (laundry, trash, working out, showering, etc.). 18:27 Next step: Break out these projects step-by-step and make timelines. I use BestSelf’s Project Action Pad (and you can get 15% off with code HEIFERS), but you can just use a spreadsheet or a piece of paper! This helps the project feel less overwhelming and gives me a better idea of what tasks to prioritize. (I’m a project manager by day, can you tell? 23:13 On my original list, I titled the third step “maintain sanity” which I think meant not beating myself up as I go through this next month, changing my work environment, asking for help, giving my perfectionism a break, etc. But who knows what I truly meant. I’m a sloth, remember? 27:18 Sleep. Sleep is something humans should do. I need to sleep this November. Heh. Heh heh. Heh heh heh heh heh heh. 28:21 My last step to not combusting is remembering that I made these projects because I LOVE doing this and IT’S FUN! 29:47 Final thoughts, the Mystery Life Project, and a pathetic attempt at a self-pep talk with an idiotic metaphor. 31:29 The outro in which I FORGET THE NAME OF MY PODCAST. I’VE DONE THIS FOR TWO YEARS. I’VE SAID IT THOUSANDS OF TIMES. GOOD GOD WOMAN. For some reason, I’ve decided to take on three, big creative projects in November: NaNoWriMo, the Christmas Special for Angus Eye Tea, and continuing my weekly episodes. As someone who has dedicated three hours a day to watching Frasier these past few weeks, that’s a lot to take on. I needed to create a survival guide for this coming month and I figured I would share it with you all in case you’re in a similar boat, creatively or not!

My Alligator Was Kidnapped. Now What? | Life Updates

Get your Hipster Witch on at www.teespring.com/stores/angus-eye-tea! Time Stamps: 00:00 G’day, mate. I have some weird anecdotes to share with you today. 01:23 HAPPY SNAKE-MATING SEASON!! I’m about to share some recent encounters I had with our tube-sock-reptilian friends. 06:31 I’m acquaintances with an alligator named Gucci. Gucci was recently part of a crime. Teens were involved. A mystery adult was their ring leader. This is his story. dun dun 07:46 I read the facts of the crime from an official email I received from my apartment complex. 11:11 Now that Gucci is free, I’m worried that I’m going to step on him in the middle of the night since he now has a vendetta. Fern finds Gucci fascinating and while Fern could totes pull off the adorable three-legged-dog lewk, it’s not a vibe I’m going for. 13:01 I’ve begun a Casual Human Interaction obstacle course to keep my minor socializing skills intact. It’s awkward. 15:30 My latest obstacle course is a horribly laid out grocery store that has cheap peanut butter and fancy beer. I never shop there but I needed the peanut butter and fancy beer. An awkward moment with sliced cheese, respecting private aisle moments, and lots of scurrying. 19:48 Another anxiety of mine is hosting people in my home. Now that I can go to the cheap peanut butter store with the fancy beer, I’m going to start inviting my bitches over. 22:24 Prime Day. The glorious Amazon Prime sale that makes you brag to your friends that you got a toaster for $3 off. My white whale? Shadow boxes for my travel memorabilia. 24:46 Creative update--I’M WORKING ON THE CHRISTMAS SPECIAL! And it’s going (not so) GREAT! I went to work on it and oops, plotted out my novel for National Novel Writing Month. 28:10 Overall, I’m okay, I’m just stuck in this gross inbetween phase of my life. But it was nice to focus on these weird anecdotes! 29:14 A snake-free outro. Not gonna lie, Heifers, I had no idea what to talk about today! I realized I had all these weird, short stories of things that have happened to me recently so I figured why not talk about them ALL! I encounter a lot of wildlife in my day-to-day life and I forget that it’s not normal to see otters crossing the street for most folks. Enjoy this fun ferris wheel of life updates and tidbits!

Retail Therapy's Downside: How to Resist Comfort Buys When You're Depressed

Get your Hipster Witch on at www.teespring.com/stores/angus-eye-tea! Time Stamps: 00:00 This is a great time to check your mail so you can clip coupons while listening to this episode. 00:50 Explaining emotional spending and how depression can make it worse. Yay! 01:48 An ironic plug for my new line of Hipster Witch shirts! I’ve had my own Hipster Witch t-shirt for ages and people kept asking me where I got it, so I decided to just make it public and let the masses have at it. You can find that #swag at www.teespring.com/stores/angus-eye-tea. 04:04 Money has always felt like a quick fix, especially when it comes to eating out. Depression can cloud my memory and warp time so I tend to forget that I’ve already made smaller purchases earlier in the week. Thus creates a parade of surprise packages showing up on my stoop every two to three days. 07:01 I was quite depressed in 2017-2018 and once, in the span of about two months, I spent $2,000. This does not include rent, bills, necessities, etc. I thought new items would change my day-to-day life and thus change how I felt (which at the time was shitty). 10:22 The tale of my spontaneous trip to Japan in 2017. At the time, I was at peak Depressed Elaine: My apartment had no water, I had a dog who wasn’t potty trained, and I frequently ate blocks of cheese for dinner. 15:08 That trip didn’t set me up well for future travel spending. The Japan trip helped my depression so much (despite the hit on my savings) that I sought trips every time I was depressed, regardless of my money sitch. This turned into escaping my depression rather than working through it. 16:26 After I’ve spent a lot of money, I get so stressed that I enter this “fuck it” attitude about spending. Like, I’m already in the red, might as well just buy EVERYTHING. 17:41 I’ve recently entered a retail therapy phase and it’s not cute. 2020 fatigue, life crossroads, and stuck at home probably prompted the latest wave. Hoping that items will bring me relief. I bought sherry glasses, I’m planning on buying a car, gettin’ bougie from my Taco Bell and upgrading to Chipotle, etc. 19:41 How I curb my retail therapy: 19:55 Let myself add EVERYTHING to the cart but not buying it. It’s easier for me to make a quick purchase if there’s only one or two items in the cart, but if it’s HUGE, then I tend to pause, overthink all the purchases, and then close out the window after overwhelming myself. (And yes, that’s some self-manipulation lol). 20:55 I don’t make purchases on the same day that I find them. I wait three days (if possible). 21:56 Wait and save up to buy a big ticket item so you don’t feel guilty about getting it. I like to use the Digit app. 22:50 If all else fails and I end up pulling out my credit card, then I’m only allowed to retail therapy on items that have purpose. I have a list of items on my phone that I’d like to get that I need but haven’t felt the urge to get just yet. Not the best, but at least the things I’m buying aren’t as much of a waste of money. 26:49 If you’re buying a program or class, make sure you’ll actually follow through with it. If you haven’t made time in your schedule to use it, or your heart isn’t really in it, then buying it won’t just make that new, fun thing happen. Also, I’ve tried pushing through my motivation by putting down a lot of money on things I wanted to make myself do and it’s backfired. Sometimes it’s worked, other times I’ve been too depressed to care, said “fuck it,” and just lost all that moola. 28:36 2020/COVID/Quarantine causing retail therapy spikes. 31:35 #BudgetSavvyBitches. A lovely outro as always. “Fiscal Feelies” was another title option I decided to forgo for this episode (though I do have minor regrets about that choice). We’ve all gone through retail therapy, but when you have depression and a credit card, things can get pretty dicey. I’ve struggled with emotional spending for a very long time. Most of my purchases didn’t bring me the joy I sought out, but that didn’t stop me from constantly adding to my cart. I talk about some methods that have helped me curb this incessant shopping and include personal examples of comfort buys/depression purchases along the way!

100th Episode: Setting Goals and Why I Podcast About Mental Health

Time Stamps: 00:00 Welcome to a long episode. Just know that this was a three-day editing process for me and all I do is talk. I’ve cranked out multi-track episodes with background music in less time than this episode took. I don’t know why. It’s brought on an existential crisis. Anywho, ENJOY. 03:00 We enter the goals portion of today’s episode! I chit chat about my September and why I find making my goals public helpful. 04:13 First Goal Reflection: Creative Sundays 09:05 Second Goal Reflection: Get my shit together and bring back the habits I’ve been working on ever since I started this goals series. (Less Taco Bell, less caffeine, sleep, etc.). 12:01 Kk, time to RAVE ABOUT OCTOBER AHHHH IT’S TIME, IT’S SPOOKY WITCH TIME. We also are in the final quarter of 2020 like bless get me tf out. 13:19 October Goal #1: Purge EVERYTHING. Clean out my apartment, my bad thoughts, and maybe take a shower every now and then. 15:18 October Goal #2: Bring back that glorious routine I used to have with this podcast where it didn’t consume my every waking moment. 17:05 October Goal #3: I make a mantra even though I’m not a fan of mantras. Like, I feel like a big poser when I try to make mantras but I pushed through the fEaR and made one for this month: move. As in, get my ass off of my couch. Not focus on the same thoughts/memories over and over and over again. 21:07 How I made it to my 100th episode with Angus Eye Tea (huzzah!). 23:24 What I’ve learned about podcasting, and podcasting with a mental health disorder (pesky bastard). 23:32 Sharing your story can be cathartic but you need to know your boundaries. 26:51 It’s okay to not fit in with what a podcast is “supposed” to be. I used to feel like I was too extra and I needed to reign it in to be more successful and now I cackle about that idea while I guzzle wine and edit my episode eight hours before it’s supposed to be released. 28:31 Perfectionism needs to die. The joy of podcasting will slowly dwindle if you keep pushing your limits, such as NEVER missing an episode, cutting out every time you breathe because, yes, you are a robot and people can’t POSSIBLY know you breathe my GOD. 30:37 The stats or number of likes on an episode don’t matter if I enjoyed the episode I made, good or bad. 32:08 Having a podcast provides my week with structure which is great for my mental health! Making an episode is enough motivation for my depressed self to focus on something and accomplish a task, even if at the time it feels like I’m making a crap episode. 34:41 What I’ve learned on podcasting about mental health. 34:53 Never try to be what you aren’t. (For me, mental health professional, perfect person, Holier Than Thou, etc.). 36:59 Make sure you’re okay bringing up certain topics or stories from your personal life. 37:46 Batch recording is the Depressed Podcaster’s elixir. 38:53 You will not run out of ideas! Your emotions will change, your reactions will change, and your perspective on anxiety/depression/mental health will change as you grow so don’t be afraid to bring up old topics. Life is ever changing and will provide you with the prompts you need, and that goes for any creator. 39:42 Why do I podcast about my mental health? 41:51 Just another amazing outro. Congrats--you made it to the end! Yeehaw! Howdy, Heifers! IT’S MY 100TH EPISODE. I love that for such an important milestone, I was three days late on uploading this episode. Oops, my b. But, regardless, I combined the goals episode with a chat about podcasting and sharing your mental health with THE WORLD. If you enjoy this podcast, please consider giving it a review!

The ‘Rona Rut Six Months Later: Major Life Decisions and Painful Self-Awareness

Time Stamps: 00:00 Congrats, you found the beginning of the episode. Yeehaw. 01:55 Describing ‘Rona Rut: The Sequel and how it’s different than the first bout I had. 02:50 My anxiety is up because I don’t have as many opportunities to practice dealing with it. 06:40 Now that I’m cruising on my new meds, I have more time and clarity to evaluate the way I’m living my life and boo, I ain’t feelin’ it. I’m struggling to merge New Elaine with Old Elaine. 08:20 Setting better boundaries while working from home. Taking PTO for mental health 10:30 Self-care waves: dance, making MY OWN TACOS, cleaning up my shit. 12:56 Realizing I have a hard time letting go of items and THOUGHTS WOW. 13:57 Update about if I’m moving or not and also how I’m making big life decisions and not beating them to death like I normally do. 16:43 Existential crisis. What do I want to do with my life once the world opens up again? 18:04 Before I was on the right meds, a lot of my time was spent trying to stay afloat. Now that I’m better, I can’t help but feel like I “wasted” so much time and have to somehow make up for it. 20:32 I’ve become really good at procrastinating on my creative projects and I’m both proud and sad. 24:02 We all get into ruts, even when it isn’t 2020. 25:53 My sick af outro mofos. Howdy, Heifers! I talked about the ‘Rona Rut, (when you feel stuck and there happens to be a global pandemic and all hell has broken loose), when we were five weeks into quarantine so I wanted to do an update after having been quarantined for six months. I’m out of the practice of using my anxiety muscles--the tools you use to battle the mini anxieties like opening a door to a new place--which started a spiral of “I’M DECAYING MY GOD EVERYTHING I’VE LEARNED IN THE PAST 6 YEARS HAS BEEN WASTED.” This thought was a tad outrageous but it did lead me to make this episode so we can commiserate together! I hope if you're in a rut, you smoothly journey through it, Heifer. Moo, Elaine. If you enjoy this podcast, please consider giving it a review!

An Astrologer Reads Me to Filth: A Journey Through My Birth Chart and Past Lives ft. Insightfully Crystal

Hello, Heifers and Hipster Witches alike! Our favorite Astrologer Crystal Warren is BACK and this time she’s reading ME to FILTH. If you’re new to this mini-series and/or have no idea where to even begin with this topic, I'd recommend starting with the first episode we did, When The World is on Fire, Can You Turn to the Stars?, which covers some of the basics of astrology, FAQs for an astrologer, etc. Today, Crystal unravels my birth chart, revealing hidden traits I possess, my life’s purpose, and yes, even my PAST LIVES (I know a lot of you were dying to know this after our last episode together!). This is just a taste of how much astrology can explore your life. Since 2020 has been a lot, we’re finding that a lot of people are searching for balance through different avenues. So, Crystal and I thought it would be fun to demonstrate an astrological reading as a potential option! If you’re curious about what your chart might look like then Crystal is an excellent person to turn to! She does readings and can help narrow in on any questions or problems you may have. You can find her on her website at insightfullycrystal.com and on Insta and Facebook @insightfullycrytsal.

Sometimes "Better" Is Impossible: How to Make Boundaries With Self-Improvement

Hey there, Heifers! I find it INCREDIBLY ironic that this episode is releasing late due to my UNPRODUCTIVE WEEK. I find myself in a constant state of self-improvement, trying to be better. Unfortunately, “better” doesn’t have a finish line. You can always be doing more, learning more, trying more, and it can become frustrating when you find that you’re not able to manage it all. Or, maybe you are, but at what cost? How rude is it that you sacrifice time to “better” when others seem to hit the lottery and soar with no problem? What are you NOT doing that they are?? These are all awful ways to go about life in my opinion! I’ve mentioned this thought before, but it resurfaced recently that I spend so much time trying to not just be the best, but better than best (wtf does that even mean?) and get so mad when I don’t hit that high bar I’ve set for myself. So! Put on your velour jumpsuit and let’s get fkin lazy, cow pals! At the end of the episode, I talked about my discovery of Bardcore--taking popular songs and transforming them into the bard genre (think 1200s-1400s music). I also found a hilarious rendition of “Lay All Your Love On Me” from Mamma Mia but you’re at a witchcraft ritual. I’ve linked them below: Bardcore: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJ_jwWjf8u5mdtac71Be8QA Mamma Mia Witchcraft Ritual: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqnEWlpESF8&ab_channel=l0user Also, I recently guested on Highly Recommended, a podcast hosted by Michelle Rubin that offers joyful, fun, insightful, life-changing, etc. recommendations each week! We talked about my journey with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (my initiation into the club, if you will), COVID and mental health, and VELOUR JUMPSUITS.

The Monthly Meltdown: Getting My Sh*t Together in September

Happy September, Heifers! I did a different format this episode (well, just a tad different!). I wanted to have a more abstract intention for my September goals because lately I’ve been feeling like the three SMART goals structure isn’t vibing with me. I have a lot going on and I think I’m just saying things to fill in the slots as opposed to really sitting down and asking myself what I want out of this month, how I’m actually doing, etc. So, enjoy this hippy-dippy episode! I talk about my Pumpkin Spice Latte sorrow since I can’t have coffee, getting my fkin OIL CHANGED, and there are a few tangents in there that are sponsored by my Diet Coke consumption prior to recording. Let’s hope I can get my shit together this September! If you love this podcast, please consider giving it a review!

Have I Lost My Soul After Two Years of Podcasting? | Dramatic Storytelling

HAPPY TWO YEAR PODIVERSARY, HEIFERS! Thank you so much for listening these past few years--even if you’re new! I’ve had so much fun talking into this mic and infesting y’all with my words. When I reflected on my podcasting jOuRnEy, I thought about how many hours I put into this hobby of mine. It was almost soul-sucking how dedicated I was to AET. And then that got me thinking...what if I DID lose my soul to podcasting? I started out wanting to do a very simple episode for this anniversary, so naturally I ended up doing a GIGANTIC DRAMATIC DOCUMENTARY of me “finding my soul.” I hope you enjoy this tom foolery. Here’s to another year of mischief, anxiety, and tacos! Despite what you may hear in this episode, I actually love Kundalini yoga! The video I sourced was from a yoga instructor I found on YouTube named Brett Larkin. Her channel is BrettLarkinYoga and I had a lot of fun following along with her videos! The one I reference can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5dMBai-wWc&t=511s. If you love this podcast, please consider giving it a review!

Reading My Fourth Grade Novella, "The Four Gatherings"

Hello, Heifers! In 2004, I took up pencil and paper and wrote one of the greatest pieces of my writing career, The Four Gatherings. As a distinguished fourth grader, I knew the troubles of the world and how to weave them into my words for readers to consume. In this book that many claim is a rip off of Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, a princess and her unicorn seek to end the reign of an evil witch who has stolen all the fruit in the land. Along the way, they’ll need the help of a wizard who’s too cool for school and a tree whose bark is as big as his bite. Together, can they stop the witch before time runs out?
