Star Light, Star Bright..

I just want to travel, take photographs, write, and make my Pinterest boards come true for a living. If I were given the opportunity tomorrow to successfully do any combination of those, I wouldn’t even blink an eye. I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight.

Ciao.

IMG_7036This weekend was full of fun. I will try to spare you on all the rambling on details but it was nice to do something out of the norm. Not that my weekends have been “normal” or anything. I am pretty aware of the fact that I live a “dull life” in comparison to many of the people that I interact with on a daily basis. I’ve actually been busier than I’m used to over the last few weeks though. But if you’ve been keeping up with my blog or twitter feed, you already knew that.

We had a nice yet unexpected dinner with my aunt on Friday evening. And we also went to visit my SO’s niece and nephew which was a blast because they are both at such fun ages. I remember growing up and my Uncle Troy seemed to be always present in my younger childhood days. Moments with him were some of my favorite growing up.

We haven’t always had the opportunity to connect with our niece and nephew as often as we’d like to have in the past but are making a great effort to do so as much as we can presently. It’s a good feeling.

Bw-obAeCcAErsTdSaturday was full of JC, shopping, a baby shower for Channing’s sister and some good ol’ quality visiting time with my mom. When days are jam packed with thing after thing after thing, it seems that there are never enough seconds in the day. I loved every bit of the weekend but I wish that I could have spent more time doing each thing because it seems like an hour only last 20 minutes these days.

Oh, and my mom, brother, and I went to get our hair done at my aunts salon in Halstad. (This is a different aunt from my Friday venture.) I wish I had a picture of my moms new do as well because she looks great!

Does time go faster than it should? I began to notice that each day seemed to go a little faster when I was in 4th grade. I don’t know what the particular event was but I know that I was at school and I all of a sudden felt like the day zoomed by. Around that time, I must have become more concussions of the measure of time.

As I’m proofreading this post, it’s kind of silly I guess. To lay out what I did on my weekend. It’s actually kind of boring. I just felt like writing and really don’t have anything specific to write about.

Actually, I do have a couple things to write about but I’m working through how to construct the posts. I have some blurbs of thoughts down but nowhere to go with them. We’ll see what happens. Ciao.

It’s Tuesday.

I’ve been noticing that the busier I am during the day the more difficult it is for me to find motivation to do things that I’d like to do such as blogging and crocheting. It’s not that I don’t have time, but I feel so warn out after a long day that I just want to veg on the couch. I’m trying to get out of that slump tonight buy forcing myself on the computer which is funny because so often we try to disconnect from the world wide web.

I’ve been tuning into the Olympics since they debuted on Friday night. I’m not totally up to date on all the big names and who are the Olympic favorites but I have my own favorite athletes and sports. I love the winter games, they always seem to be more fun than the Summer games and just so graceful. Everything from snowboarding to luge to speed and figure skating. I’m that person that will just sit there, mouth dropped to the floor in awe for hours. I think it’s absolutely outrageous at the talent that some people are born with. Hats off to all of you.

I’ve been writing back and forth to my grandma Darlene for a few years now. We live a little over two hours apart which causes a lack of being able to keep up to date on our day to day lives. It’s crazy how the distance and growing up really separates people. The one thing that we both cherish though, are our letters back and forth. I need and want to make more of a point to write more often. Again, I blame my busy work life for not replying too quickly and I need to quit that. What’s the benefit of just sitting on the couch gluing my eyes to the boob tube every night? Other than being a sitcom critic, probably nothing.

Here’s to the hopes and motivation to continue to do more in the year twenty-fourteen. Tonight, I found joy in buying our nephew his big number three birthday gift, replying to my grandma’s latest letter, and taking the time to blog. What did you do to improve your outlook on life today?

Write It Out.

Since the new year started, I’ve seen a few new blogs pop up on my various social network news feeds. They are all very inspirational. The ironic thing is; although all of us are doing our own thing – we all seem to have a common ground. And that is: expressing ourselves in a way that we haven’t before. Something was missing and that was explanation, interpretation, and most of all our voices in the written form. I don’t know about anyone else but I find it easiest to express myself in any emotion through writing it out. Sure I’m fully capable of declaring my emotions in any which way physically and vocally but actually digging a little deeper and getting my voice heard only happens through writing. The unfortunate thing is that we never really know who is listening to it when presenting it on a public forum like this. I’m sure people all over the world see our open book and pass their own judgements just like I myself do. But the people that we actually want to see and read and understand seem to have no idea that these parts of our lives exist. To each their own I guess, we can’t make anyone do anything.
