Summer ’16

July 7, 2016

I am thrilled that it is finally summer. I love everything about the summer. The abundant sunshine, the longer days. The warm weather and unexpected rains.

And that feeling of extra cold air conditioning when you come in from outside.

In the summer amazing things feel possible. It feels like there is excitement waiting around each corner.

Ordinary daily activities that can be annoying are less of a drag in the summer. Continue Reading…

Avoidance

May 9, 2016
so many choices

It has been a long time since I last posted, about three months.

It is weird how my days feel slow but still it seems like time goes by quickly.

Today I thought to myself; I have avoided posting long enough. I decided I would make today the day I get started blogging again.

I have this way of avoiding things.

Avoiding posting reminds me of all the things that I believe I really want to do.

Why it’s Not Hard to Love February

February 9, 2016

By now you know that I don’t like the winter and that I’m not a huge fan of Mondays or my survival job.

So I am thrilled to share with you about something that I love for real.

I love February and I am so excited that it’s here.

There’s so much that I love about February.

The holidays are fully behind us. I don’t know about you, but for me, the holiday season is a lot. I spent January winding down and I know that I started working myself up about the holidays back in October.

I love that at 5 pm it is not as dark as it would be in the middle of the night. One thing I hate about the winter is how dark it is when I leave work. But now, every day the evenings are getting a little bit brighter and brighter. I need a little light at the end of the day in order to be motivated to something other than just attaching my butt to my couch watching unsatisfying television while drinking lots of (satisfying) wine. The days are getting slightly longer day by day, and I love it so much. Continue Reading…

Getting my lifestyle in order

January 5, 2016

The other day I realized that I needed to get my lifestyle in order.

I had been feeling out of sorts and blaming all external events. The holidays, Monday, commuting. Nothing escaped my scorn and ire. But one morning I noticed that I had hit the snooze button for two hours.

And that was how I knew.

It’s me.

I didn’t feel rested at all and before I even sat up and put my feet on the floor, I was annoyed that I was going to be very late to work.

Again.

I have to leave home at 7:45 to get to work on time and I need two hours to get ready so I set my alarm clock for 5:45. Normally when my alarm goes off, I like to hit the snooze button several times. I recognize how ridiculously unsustainable that type of morning routine is and so I’ve decided to get it together.

I believe that each new day is a new chance and the morning time is when our actions can set the tone for the day. I feel like I am winning and like I’m in control of my life when I get up in time to complete my morning rituals without being late to work. The aspects of my commute to work that annoy me, annoy me less on successful mornings. Continue Reading…

Writer’s Block

September 24, 2015

It usually goes something like this. I’ll discover a show and then I’ll watch TV all day and all weekend. Sometimes I’ll spend an entire day on the phone talking or texting. Some days are spent just reading. Other times, I spend the whole day online reading article after article.

Some weekends I am too guilty to just laze about, so I will choose to do a chore I have been avoiding — like cleaning the oven. I’ll tell myself that it is important to have a clean oven. But while I’m cleaning the oven, I will be defiantly justifying my actions to myself the whole time. I won’t get to experience the satisfaction of having a clean oven, because I will know that the reason I cleaned the oven is because I was just avoiding writing. Continue Reading…
