back in action

lately, I've been thinking about how much I missed blogging. life has changed and I'm in a pretty good position to get some of my goals back on track. as such I'm back in action. I'm going to revamp the exterior of this blog and come back in action. I'm working on a game plan to get this coming back in action.

This is my mantra for the year. Don't concentrate on the goals, concentrate on getting there. I did make my list of resolutions this year as I always do, but I'm concerning myself more with getting there, rather than just accomplishing the goal. Two weeks in I'm doing alright. I like it.

the postcard swap!

I love postcards. I use to be a very active member of postcrossing but I've kind of fallen off the bandwagon there. I think the idea of a picture and a short note is sometimes all you need. We all know what I do when I get down!  I for one am very thankful that Jennifer of Grits and Moxie decided to put together a postcard swap!

from the lovely jennifer
So I am belatedly showing off the lovely postcards I finally received from the May swap! (Not calling out the swappers, just the SHITTY postal service of otsego county) One of the things I really like about Jennifer's idea that each month has a theme! May was "where you live". I'm not the most intelligent person at times and I totally failed to take pictures of the postcards that I sent. I aiming to actually remember and take pictures in July.

from the mysterious jenny oh!
I'd link the lovely lady who sent me the postcard, but they didn't send their blog information on the postcard! Maybe next month! Stay tune for me to share the June swaps postcards (when I get them!) I will also make an attempt to remember to kick out a link for the July sign up!

I was left to my own devices. . . .

It's another Music Monday, here on shellasaurusrex and I have to admit I do like this feature so far. For a very, very long time music was the love of my life. I made mixtapes daily, had a song of the week and when I lost myself I lost interest. Slowly yet surely, 2013 has been my year of regrowth. So here is the song I've been feeling since I heard it a few weeks ago. (Crystal S. this is all your fault for posting it on your wall!)

"But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?"
Pompeii - Bastille

Now to some I could see this song being depressing and I just don't find that to be the case at all. I think the song is very, very upbeat and after listening to it once, I want to hear it again. We all know what happened to the city Pompeii, that the song takes it's title from. Unlike the city of Pompeii, I don't want to stay dormant, lost in ash forever. I want to go for a run, take a hike and plan, plan, plan. This song gives me hope, that even though it seems like nothing is changing, slowly and surely it is. Pompeii didn't stay hidden away for ever and neither will I.

What do you think of the song? What song is stuck in your brain this week? Tell me in the comments!
