Thoughts of the week of June 19, 2017

I’ve had so much to say lately, yet I’ve had so little time to say it. I realized earlier today that I just had a pile of Post-It notes of ideas on my desk. None of them had made it off my desk, let alone into my purse and home. I’m finally in front of…

Things I don’t understand.

I will never understand why people are cruel to animals, or why babies aren’t born potty trained. I will never understand why chocolate has to be the addicting food, and it can’t be pineapple. I won’t understand the concept of time, and I’m still not convinced it’s anything more than an enigma. To be continued……

I remember my first beer.

I had my first beer in the middle of nowhere, otherwise known as Minburn, IA. I had it while sitting outside of an old farmhouse that was very literally falling down around me. I had it between corn fields, next to grain silos. I had it while sitting around a bonfire. I had my first…

Procrastinator…

I haven’t posted once since the day I said I was going to try to write every day. I promise: I have been writing! Just in a different way. I joined Beachbody almost two weeks ago, and all my writing has been dedicated to the daily updates I’ve been making in my accountability group on…

Goal: Write Every Day

I read something today that said “Write daily, for catharsis, for memory, to think. And write something significant, even if it’s just one word, or one phrase, coming from some very honest place within you.” And with that, my very honest thought for today is this: I am not who I used to be, and…

Lack of Understanding

I have recently discovered that I’m an extremely impatient person. I moved to a new position at work about 8 months ago; and about 4 months ago, I got a new boss. By “new,” I mean that she was completely new to the company 4 months ago. I had hardly done the job longer than…

It must be because…

It must be because I’ve been left before… Not just “left,” but left by someone who woke up one morning and decided that I was way too much for them. I was left by someone who couldn’t ever commit to me; someone who just couldn’t make up his mind. I was left by someone who…

Because I stayed home.

Sometimes I look at the girls who left, and I wish I had left too. I look at the girls who joined the Navy, who moved to Nashville for work, who moved to Florida because they just needed out; I look at the girls who did something else, and I wish I had too. I…

The Last Tycoon [Finished]

Hey guys! I finished the unfinished novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Read my review on my Goodreads page 🙂 The Last Tycoon Review

A sugar-cookie-and-coffee kind of morning…

Yes, you heard (er, read) me right: Sugar cookies for breakfast. Well, just one sugar cookie… (Big Sky Bread [Iowa]). So good, yet so rich. I could only eat one, and I’ve literally had a sweet tooth for like, 3 days. Now, I’m hoping my coffee will also serve as a pre-workout this morning, because…

Dream Journal: It’s the end of the world as we know it.

I hear vague murmuring as I come out of a deep sleep. The more awake I become, the more recognizable the words are. “You were doing that weird mumbling thing in your sleep,” Brian says. He often starts talking to me before I’m completely awake. I’ll wake up, and he’ll be in the middle of…
