A New Series.

There is so much that I want to write about about and at the very same time there’s nothing to say. I’m a thinker. My gears are constantly turning. It’s like my brain is shape-shifting in ways that I don’t even know how to explain.

Oh, were the days when you could walk around with a hand held recorder to record all your thoughts. I mean, we still have it sure – it’s called a phone. In order to record anything you have to swipe to unlock, swipe to find the app, wait for your phone OR the app to stall and then load…do I need to continue or do you get the point?

My newest thought was to do a “12 Days of Christmas” series on my blog. When I looked that up, I came across some new information. The “12 Days of Christmas” actually starts on Christmas Day and runs through January 5th. Am I the only one to not have known that? My entire life I was under the assumption that December 25th was the last day, day twelve.

Sticking to my original assumption though, I’m doing it my way. Day 1 will be December 14th because that only makes sense – the 12 days leading up to Christmas. Obviously.

I have a few reasons for pursuing this. The first being that I’ve been so busy trying to manage my second blog that this one has kind of taken an undeserved hit. In a perfect situation, I’d obviously have only one blog. One central location for readers to find me. But that’s not the case. I have so much invested into this blog that I don’t want to let it go and I won’t be posting any of my random, no subject rants (like this one) on there anyways.

I have (well had) a few plans for this blog to begin with because I haven’t been making a very good effort to write. Writers block doesn’t seem to be a problem..Netflix does. Orange Is The New Black anyone? Talk about an addiction. I finished it in less then a week and now I’m on to my next fix: House of Cards.

Damnit, Netflix.

So stay tuned everyone. The self-required “12 Days of Christmas” series begins on December 14th.

Everyone Sees Things Differently.

I got a little sidetracked last night. After work, I had two choices. I could either wait around until Channing got done with work – maybe sit in my car, mosey around a store or two. OR. I could go home, sit on my butt, and watch three shows on my DVR. Instead of either, I took a little drive outside of town. The only time I really go out of the city, is because I’m going home to visit my parents or on the interstate of see my brother, Nick.

So I tried something different. I headed on 32nd and just kept going. I’d never gone in that direction any further than the Flying J so it was pretty fun. Who would have thought that only five miles past the interstate; you’d hit the beautiful flat plains of the North Dakotan country land. I wanted to chase the sun. It was beautiful out, we reached 33 degrees yesterday. The sun was big and bright. The sky was blue. Real beauty. As I just kept driving, I was reminded of the peaceful feeling of nothing around.

I should have brought my camera because some of the views were just breathtaking. Check out my favorite versions below. I plan on doing this again soon with my actual camera and more time to spare. Enjoy.
