This week’s themes: Creating, Finding, Switching, Forgetting, Craving.
Awkward: I pretty much blew my life up at the end of 2015. I was lazy, complacent, drinking too much, forgetting to check in with myself to find out if I was okay with the choices I was making (surprise: I wasn’t). So now that I tore myself down…
Awesome: …I get to build back up. Create new things in 2016. My word is RADIANT this year and damnit I’m going to sparkle if it kills me (no ingesting of glitter, though. That shit really will kill you.)
Awkward: I came home last night to hear scratching noises above my head in the living room. Fast forward to 5:30 am this morning and I was woken up by the same scratching noises. I felt a little like Leslie Knope. Except their part of town appears to be my bedroom.
Awesome: I’m finally figuring out how I want to use my Happy Planner. I would LOVE to be one of those people who decorates it all pretty and whatnot, but then where do you write? I use a planner to plan, yknow?
Awkward: It’s always awkward for me to switch years. I haven’t really ever placed much stock in a shiny new me the second the clock strikes 12. Let’s be real here, I’m gonna be the same sarcastic ass I was at 12:01 that I was at 11:59. So it feels disingenuous to say I’m going to flip to an entirely new mindset the minute it’s a new year.
Awesome: I do have some pretty awesome goals, though, so I have to switch my mindset if I want them to happen. I want to bust out of my jeans-and-t-shirt/stale-routine kinda way I’ve been going. I did officially register the domain for the fry blog that I want to do, so that’s step 1.
Awkward: To write anything until it’s almost noon the first day that I’m a part of the Blogger Tribe Sunday Lately linkup. Whoops.
Awesome: I went to a Pens game last night and I forgot how great it is when we win. Should that be in the Awesome or Awkward category…?
Awkward & Awesome: Now that I’ve talked about Leslie Knope, I want waffles. Oh you beautiful sunfish, why do you have to be so addictive?
