“Between two lungs, it was released. The breath that captured me. The sigh that blew me forward.” – Florence + The Machine
Apparently it’s been a while.
Like all things related to me, this blog has suffered due to my inability to see things through to completion. I always have good ideas (really. always.) but it’s hard for me to follow through on them. Then again, a somewhat daily record of the who-what-where-when-why is never really complete, I guess. It just keeps going, like the Energizer bunny. Or reality TV.
But I don’t watch TV. So what have I been doing?
I’d say that I’ve been keeping up with other things, but whatever those things are, they’ve become so muddled that I couldn’t even tell you what I’ve done. I think this in in part due to the fact that my work hours have changed again, so instead of working nights I am now working days – and let me tell you, it has messed with my brain (read: even after a month, my sleeping cycles are in no way set). I still enjoy staying up til 2am (meaning: laying in bed waiting to fall asleep, while fretting that I have to get up in 3 hours… 1.5… oh, there’s the alarm). And because I’m getting up earlier now, even my tendencies to sleep in have changed. Sleeping in, to me, now means getting up at 8am. Where did I go wrong in life?
I haven’t kept up with my regular exercise routine, but I still do random bits here and there. I always try to think of the future, instead of the present, so currently I’m preparing for winter, which makes me think of cold, which makes me think my ass is not gonna be running and slipping on ice, even though it hasn’t even snowed yet, but it will someday, and THEN WHERE WILL I BE?
See? I’m so muddled I use run-ons like it’s acceptable to do so. Which it so obviously isn’t.
So, peeps, here are the lessons of today’s post:
-Maybe do a Forrest Gump-type thing and just literally run away from everything. Preferably to someplace warmer, so that when you get there, you can go for a swim. It’s like a real life triathlon, without the bike. Who needs one? Not you, in this scenario. You have legs. At least I hope.
-Jobs, no matter what you do, make you crazy. Quit them immediately. And then go for a swim. Don’t have a pool? That’s ok. Find an ocean, or use your bathtub and pretend.
-You might want to clean your bathtub. Those things get nasty.
-I’m cracking myself up. I should write in here more often. Thanks, me.
