Much needed. I've been a total insomniac lately. I have all of this pent up shit circling my brain and I can't get it out. A volcano is about to erupt, and it's gonna be a good one. I can feel it. Update: I thought that I should point out that the volcano is a good thing. God damn you disclaimerverse. Drives me crazy!
In other news... I was on the phone with a friend last night and we got talking about some "good ole times". Holy moly what a shitshow we were back then. And by shitshow I mean, completely awesome.
We've created a file for the madness of yore, it's called "my life was a Tarantino film before I met you".
And it was.
See also; my sink is dripping, and I might go hack the faucet off with an axe.
I would also like to add that I don't hate anyone's spiritual beliefs. I actually love learning about other people's beliefs. I love knowing what makes people tick and having new ideas to ponder. I'm quite a spiritual junkie, as a matter of fact. I also think that there is a bigger picture, and validity to it all on one level or another. So just because I find a list of questions funny, or the idea of God floating around in the desert in a cloud throwing hissy fits and having to be talked down every five minutes by Moses so he doesn't annihilate people, doesn't mean that I hate, or judge what someone else believes.
We are also touching, now, on why I'm feeling done with blogging. I really can't stand Disclaimerverse. It totally takes away from the fun of writing.
That's about all I have for you this Monday morning. Real life calls. Dental appointments, laundry, grocery shopping... I'd also like to get a work out in before the imps rise from their siesta.
I'll leave you with this gem. God, I miss those boots.
What is it about the creative process that makes me need to smoke?!!! GAH!
Don't worry, I have no plans on giving in, it's just annoying. I think the issue is twofold: 1) I have characters who smoke, and 2) smoking and writing used to just go hand in hand. Now I'm back into writing, but done with smoking. It feels wrong.
Remember that day that I said I was going to start blogging again? That was hilarious, wasn't it?
I wish I could say that my lack of blogging is because I have all of this fun and exciting stuff going on, but it is actually the exact opposite. I just have nothing going on that is interesting enough to write about.
Here are a few random things:
1. I'm making a huge trip to Goodwill this afternoon. I'm actually very excited about that. Deciding to not have a yard sale was the best thing that I could have done. I just need to get this crap out, and I feel just as good about donating stuff as I do about making money off of it, and honestly, I don't know that the money we'd get from it would be at all worth the headache anyway.
2. Sometimes I just have to laugh at the thought that I am a housewife. I'm so not cut out for this business, ha! I love doing it, which surprises me... I just never saw myself here.
3. Have you ever thought up a pen name? This is something that I thought would come easy to me - and probably would have when I was in my 20's and still "cool". It's much harder now.
4. I'm really in need of someone who I can bounce shit off of but who "gets it". I know that makes absolutely no sense, but seriously. I might have known half of crazytown in my day, but leaving crazytown is horribly overrated, not to mention boooooring, and you just can't talk creative shit out with "normal" people.
So, I actually do have a plan to blog for real next week.
I'm going to get started with sharing my health and fitness goals. I'll warn you that my blog may become primarily about these subjects for a while because that's where I'm at right now.
In the meantime, you should know that I am a BIG Legend of Zelda geek. I make a hobby of conquering various Zelda games and then wiping them clean to start all over. That is why the following pictures are hilarious to me. If you know Zelda, they're likely to be hilarious to you too.
"When you are clear on what is important to you, there comes an incredible sense of freedom. You no longer live in a world of social comparison. You are running your own race. Goals, big decisions & small habits are surmountable & invigorating because you have a clear picture of what you want your life to stand for. Clarity does not come easily. It also evolves throughout your life, which requires gracious flexibility. But it is worth it."
That Molly is one smart cookie. I feel like I should share her website since I am sharing her words... http://www.stratejoy.com
