I am going to try and keep up with this writing thing. For as long as I can remember, I've begun a writing project and then stopped half way through. I am never sure how and why I stop writing, because I always want to write. I want to remember. Every day, I plan out … Continue reading Waiting
A Blessed Morning
On a blessed morning, I'ro will allow me to sleep until 7 am. Today I woke before the sun, 5:30 am. Tail wagging and small nibbling, the puppy let me know that he was ready to get up and go. But, first, I had to do the human business of putting my socks on, brushing … Continue reading A Blessed Morning
Long story short, it’s still a bad time.
I tend to put a lot of pressure on things that really don't require that much attention. It's a habit of mine that I've been trying to break for the longest time, but sometimes the bad habits win. Often, this comes as a "I can't do x, y, z, until everything else is perfect." I … Continue reading Long story short, it’s still a bad time.
just one day
Every single time I sit and try to write, the words don't come. The need to write is there. The all consuming feeling that I must write something overrides my ability to do literally anything else without thinking about how I would write that scene. But, the words don't come. I want to have a … Continue reading just one day
a little calm and a lot of rain
We have gotten a lot of rain lately. And, on the moments when the sun breaks through the outside looks so green and so inviting. I miss long walks through the woods and carefree exploration days. Many of my days have been filled with work, lately. Long hours and lots of inside time. It's been … Continue reading a little calm and a lot of rain
a 2021 birthday
Every year around the middle of April I start to take care of myself a little more. I begin focusing on the aspects of myself which I typically ignore throughout the rest of the year. Usually this means a haircut, painting my nails, and picking up a book or movie for myself. I attempt to … Continue reading a 2021 birthday
coming back to it
For many reasons and maybe none at all, I stepped back from my blog for a while....
Winter is in full swing. I'm having a hard time concentrating on anything. Self-isolation is getting to me. Long story short, I've had to quarantine in my room again. I've had a few movie nights with friends, and I've written letters and sent cards and have had virtual get togethers, which tend to help for … Continue reading Losing Steam
A few thoughts on December 2020
On December 31, 2019, I passed out on a friend's couch early after working my 6th double shift of the week (or something ridiculous like that). I was awoken at 11:57 pm, so that I could partake in watching the ball drop. I then was told that I had to stay awake for at least … Continue reading A few thoughts on December 2020
Not another YouTube rabbit hole…
We've established that I am normally not very great at keeping up with new hobbies. Typically, I research the heck out of something and then I go for it. All in. Non stop. And then I get bored and I decide that maybe this hobby isn't for me (bullet journaling, anyone?). Anyway, I've recently discovered … Continue reading Not another YouTube rabbit hole…
