9:51 PM Thoughts
Hello blog! I am supposed to sleep so I can go to work in the morning. I am on a sleep hygiene kick. (Coming off the cell phone early and having quiet activities, lowering temp/ noise etc) and of course now my mind is free and bursting with things to say. My improved sleep plan backfired. It’s been a long time since I blogged, and I have reasons for that- mostly lack of inspiration. However, I have the urge to write again. I don’t know if anyone can relate to this, but I am one of these people who needs to write everything down. I have a very “wordy” brain. It’s almost obsessive. Throughout the day I write in my planner, then I write on my cell phone planner, then I rewrite. I like to write lists of every single thing I think about and goals. I literally need to externalize all my thoughts on paper, or they just sit there all stale in my brain festering. Putting stuff on paper is like cleaning out my fridge. So I’ve decided to get back on all of it, the journaling, blogging, list writing, etc. It’s a form of prayer and catharsis that I can’t achieve any other way. By the way, it’s almost January- I did this last year in January too. I firmly feel the “new beginning” vibe every new year when this big wave of energy washes over me post-Christmas. For me, Christmas is a drag, which probably warrants a whole other blog or list.
Quick life updates
When restarting a journal or blog, it feels proper to brief on what happened since last update. I believe my last posts were in Spring which was dreary and obstacle-ish. Since then, I’ve settled into my job and feel comfortable there. I’m still in school finishing my BSN online. I’m taking one class at a time and enjoying it for once. I met a new BF on OkCupid- we’ve been together since August. I’ve gotten close to his family and made some acquaintances/ pals here. I don’t plan to move home. I had a sleepy exhausting hot summer in the south but fall and winter have been upbeat, busy, and refreshing. I have lots of trips and events planned for this year. I feel like I’m at home. Things are mostly the same and I’m cruisin’.
Y so random?
This blog is changing from being spiritual/ motivational to just an organized form of whatever is on my mind that moment. Maybe I’ll be obsessed with a list of instapot recipes or have this enraging story. It’s too demotivating to stay on the same topics all the time.
