Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
Wayne Dyer


it's prolly a little embarrassing but is it bad that i have already begun to think about new years resolutions? i think i want to make like a yearly overview of goals but then make goals for each month. at work a bunch of the gang are trying to do the Seinfeld or Frazier chain and that to me honestly isn't my cup of tea. there are so many goals i set as a child and a teenager that i am not hitting. after julian for a while there i felt like my spark left and i was just existing. i let go of a lot, my health, my weight and my mind to a certain degree. lately i've got that spark back. i want more. i want things to change. and after julian, i know i can make things change. this move to a new place is a big deal for me. i want change. i want so much more lately. i'm motivated. are you?

i'm free

being 26 years old i am ready to settle down. i may not be ready to have a boyfriend, but i have certainly moved out of the party every day college mindset. getting a roommate with the opposite game plan was a piss poor idea on my part. yes there were extenuating circumstances. . . yes my apartment complex did not pass code and chose to close my apartment rather than fix it. . . yes i needed a new place to live. however i will not go back to a shared living environment every again. regardless i've stuck it out since june. you know what is nice? not doing something illegal in the house when you know my father is visiting. i'm sick of cleaning up after someone. i'm sick of doing someone else's dishes otherwise they'll just pile up. sick of cleaning up after someone in the bathroom which becomes disgusting if i don't clean it! now? i'm done. i signed my lease release today. oh november 26th you just can not get here soon enough for me! i'm free!

the view from table rock
it is unseasonably warm here this weekend. i hiked myself up to table rock this morning to take a picture. i took others but they did not come out as nice as i had hoped they would. now i am home, lounging around. for the first time in like 3 months i've got myself caught up at work. i don't feel like i need to to work this weekend because i'm caught up and everything is scheduled out. i do need to do some laundry and go collect some more boxes. i've got everything pretty much packed up and ready to go. i need to edit this template i just haven't wanted to. i might ask jason or justin tomorrow at work for some help, i also need to make myself some graphics, maybe next weekend. i am so excited to move, i can barely contain myself. i wish it was closer. i haven't found a lot to toss this time around. i do intend to further cut down when i move. i can not wait to get my new kitchen all set up. i can not wait to only have to clean up after myself. i feel like this apartment is such an opportunity for me. this is an opportunity i do not plan to waste.

packing is a dangerous business

i've been trying to pack up today as i will be moving at the end of the month. packing is a dangerous business. i've been paper cut and dropped a brass owl on my foot. i have however realized i've got far less to pack this time around and once i move in what i don't get rid of now, i will get rid of then. i've been making a big push to become more of a minimalist. i've been reading all the minimalist blogs and i've been making a push to the cloud. going so far as to give up my 600+ books for a nook tablet (which i love might i add). i'm down to nice furniture that doesn't look like i am a stupid college student anymore. i'm not quite where i want to be on many levels but i am slowly on my way there. i can't wait until i move. it's another new beginning and i do not intend to waste it!

The Truth is Out There
i have been watching the x-files all day. my own mini marathon. i realized that the x-files started in 1993. my youngest sister was born that year. the x-files will be 20 years old soon. that seems so crazy. my parent's are always like "so and so has been around for x number of years". now i'm that person. 20 years ago i was 6. i am procrastinating. i should be cleaning and packing my stuff up. i should be doing some work and yet here i sit in my bedroom on my bed. here i sit with my netbook open and the tv on. i think the extra hour this morning threw me. i forgot that it was coming and woke up late due to it. my body is very strict when it comes to it's schedule. oh well i'll get up shortly. back to blogging again. we'll see where this takes me.
