Success

“Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm”

Winston Churchill

Over time, slowly but surely, I have come to realize how true and real these words are. If I have learned anything from struggling through a breakup in high school, cancer in my family, moving away from home all on my own, family troubles, and the random tidbits life threw at me just like it throws at everyone else…it’s that everything amazing I have gotten out of my experiences was when I made the choice to carry enthusiasm with me, especially in my failures. It was when I made the choice to be the best I could possibly be; to be a better person than the day before. It was when I made the choice things would get better whenever I felt my world was crashing. It was when I made the choice to forgive for the sake of peace in my life. And it was definitely when I made the choice to love who I am, even if I am far from perfect. Circumstances do have an impact on you, but you yourself impacts whether a circumstance will build you or break you.

This Blog Is Depressing…

I have lost track of how many times since my last post that I wished I was at this as often as I used to be. Then I realized, “Ca-rap! I haven’t made any time for myself”. And listed all the things holding me back from this precious blog.

1. Work. Girl needs to pay her bills so she can live comfortably and get by on nice things.

2. School. Full time student with full-time stress of homework, tests, sitting in class, and organizing all that crapola.

3. Relationships. Significant other and best friends keep my weekends and what free time I have left crammed.

4. My lovely-lonely-long bucket list that needs to be pampered up…and it’s going to take time.

5. Mood. All this stuff loaded in my life has left me crabby, tired, and unmotivated.

6. Sleep. Just need it.

7. Down time. The little time I have to myself…honestly, I kind of just want to curl up in a tight little ball and be left alone.

Yet again, I am making another promise to myself to pay more attention to my wants, needs, hopes and dreams, and this cute little blog of mine. It’s all I have left on these lonely days! D:

G-Hog Day

Published February 2, 2015 by konchk

Froze my butt off waiting for the bus early this morning.

Had kind of an off day all day…super tired and so was everyone else.

And according to our little groundhog, we have another 6 weeks of a hard winter ahead of us.

Still, happy Groundhog Day to all.

Happy 1 Year Anniversary to “Shenanigans of A Hoodlum”!

Published January 31, 2015 by konchk

The wordpress machine told me on my little notification side bar that exactly one year ago…I ventured on this blog journey. This last year had its extreme highs and its extreme lows. I’d like to say more highs than lows, but it’s actually fairly balanced. Since last year my world has been up and down, post or no post…my life has been hectic but full of fun as well.

Since one year ago and maybe a little before, I have…

Started this lovely blog.

Finally kept my promise.

Sang in the rain. Kissed in the rain.

Shared a kiss under a full moon.

Formed the constellation of a pretty-ful night sky on my ceiling.

Looked through a telescope.

And witnessed a most beautiful lunar eclipse.

Went to a bachelorette party for a spontaneous wedding.

Did something completely spontaneous normal Hannah would never dream of doing.

Got a pet rock (which turned out to be an owl)

And named him Paparkahar.

Shot a gun and missed a poop ton

I finally hit a can ever-so-slightly.

Baked a sweet, pink layer cake

And a loaf of bread…but should have waiting to bake.

Ate some caviar my dear friend bought for me.

Gave out an “I find you attractive” business card

To three cute waiters at the Olive Garden

Then left a 100 percent tip.

Sent a care package to my favorite person in the whole world.

Finally scared my roommate.

Drew a model nude.

Learned to dance.

Wrote a letter to me to read decades later.

Rode in a cop car on the way to the bus station.

Spaced out through all my classes.

Because I met a boy.

Shared the most meaningful conversations with my best friends.

And forgot them all.

Left for Rapid City.

Skipped a semester from school.

And made lots of moneys.

Making coffee in a bookstore.

And sitting in Cherry Berry.

Spent time with my sisters, grams, and niece.

And other people, I guess.

Saw a shooting star on a walk at night.

And made a wish that I can’t remember.

Went kayaking with my pretty sister.

Fell into the water.

Took a picture in a photo booth with my smart, wittle, adorably-entitled nephew.

Left because I missed a boy a lot.

And goofed off with him for weeks.

Ate lots of sushi and dressed up.

Ate some frog legs.

4-wheeling!

Finally made it back to College Town.

Finally decided I wanted to be in school.

Finally got another job.

Bought a lottery ticket for the heck of it.

Didn’t win, by the way.

Still pursuing my passions..

Still memorizing those 100 digits of pi.

Still reading Crime And Punishment

Still learning to swim and drive?

Still in school.

Still blogging. And arting. And doing stuff.

Here is to another year.
