This Blog Is Depressing…

Published March 25, 2015 by konchk

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:

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.

Hannah’s New Boots

Published December 31, 2014 by konchk

When I was little,  I was absolutely obsessed with the children’s book, Hannah’s New Boots, by Cecilia something.  Mainly because the main little girl had my name. Why I fell so in love with it… beats me!
For Christmas, my parents were determined to find that book for me (which was sadly out of print) and the matching red rain boots. Best. Christmas. Present. EVER.

As with many things I love, I lost those gorgeous boots and that lovely book. However, I am now determined to get them back! About a week ago, I got another pair of tall red boots (not rain boots quite yet…) but I am still working on it!
Still searching on Amazon for the book!

Hoping for a special new year 🙂

New Years

Published December 29, 2014 by konchk

I haven’t quite been up to my usual shenanigans as of late…I hope, with this New Year to bring back the things that bring me passion. I am hoping to keep with blogging. I miss reading all of how other people find passion in their normal routines in their lives. I am hoping to keep with the crossing off my too-long bucket list. I hope to, along with other hopeless Americans, start living a bit more healthy. For lovely instance…doing yoga/light exercise/at least stretching every day at least once. Eating better, of course! Less processed foods, more greens, and cutting my caffeine down quite a bit (more difficult than it sounds). And there is always flossing and taking vitamins. As with other hopeless Americans, I will be trying to get better with my finances…I should probably start a budget, or something?.. I just kind of want to become a better person, with this whole new year and all. I want to be proud of who I am. I want passion in my life. I want to be wholesome, if that makes any sense. I guess there is quite a lot of work to do this 2015. Wish me lots of luck, all 🙂 Hope you all also find what you are looking for.

Bucket List Adventures

Published November 23, 2014 by konchk

This p023ast week has been fairly eventful in looking for ways to cross off my 216-item bucket list! For starters, I am continuing my little cross-stitching project. Working on it little by little, but progressing still. Making a few mistakes here and there (EEEEEEKKKK), but none too major to not fix. I’m hoping to have it finished around New Year’s (if I’m lucky/determined enough).
I have been able to cross off a couple pretty good items off that list of mine. One being item #38: To go 4-wheeling! Was a blast, if I say so myself :)…the other being item #76: Shooting a gun! Even though it was not quite as scary as a hunting rifle, but a cute little bee bee gun…it counts in my book!
Today, I am attempting to cross off #104…to go an entire day intentionally without talking. EEK! This one is a bit more difficult than I had anticipated. I may have slipped in some accidental words, but don’t tell anyone 😉 Hopefully, I will have the strength/will/means to cross off at least a couple more.
Wish me plenty of luck…I desperately need it. Lucky troll might help me…
BYE!
