I Don’t Want To Work…Just Wanna Bang On the Cross-Stitch All Day!

Published December 4, 2014 by konchk

Haiku of the month:

I need some more time
To do lists ’bout a mile long
I am flipping tired.

Honestly, I kind of just want to sit around all day working on my cross-stitch, drinking tea, teaching myself to knit, and sleeping. Gosh, I can’t wait to be old.

I am hoping for a productive evening. I wish the same for you.

Bye!

Shenanigans Of A Hoodlum: Round 2 (Writer’s Block)

Published November 21, 2014 by konchk

049Writer’s block. Quite a bit of writer’s block. For a couple months now.
Writer’s block from this site. Writer’s block from my bucket list (frownie face). Writer’s block from work from school from everything.
Here’s to another shot at life. Ha

Wish me the best of luck. I am certainly going to try to straighten myself out. Get flipping motivated!
I miss yoga. I miss tea in the evening. I miss reading long, boring books for the sake of saying I’ve read them. I miss prettying myself up. I miss having something to look forward to. I miss blogging, bucket lists, cross-stitch, shopping sprees, baths, candles. Everything.

It is definitely finally time to get moving again! Time to cross off that bucket list! Time to get back to school! Time to get flipping excited again!

Wish me luck to clear my writer’s block. Smiley face.

Hello Friends :)

I understand it has been quite a while. I have to say that I (regretfully) have neglected my blogging duties…and bucket list duties 😦 I hope to change this. In fact, I’m hoping to change a few things about myself to help me grow as a person, or whatever.

1. For a few weeks, to catch up on bucket list stuff and such…I will try for crossing off two items, instead of one. This will be rather difficult, but very much worth it.

2. Write to you lovely people as much as I can. I need to liven up my writing a bit and wake myself up a bit.

3. More yoga/meditation/walks…Just basically some alone time to clear my mind. School is getting kind of crazy as of now and I need some more energy spoons.

4. Go to class ready. Unfortunately, I have been slacking in this area…Feeling sick or tired or just overwhelmed. Class is still kinda important, since I am going into a poop ton of debt going. Any time I sense myself myself dozing, slap in the face!

5. Leave my debit card at home. Enough said.

6. Have an hour or two every day set aside for just plain creativity.

7. Wake up early. It’s always very tempting to sleep in, but I am less of a cranky butt when I am able to spend the morning doing something productive.

8. Keep my big goals in mind. Pretty important.

9. Lay off the coffee. This one is flipping difficult. Especially with the dozing off part in # 4.

10. Even though # 8 is kinda why I’m here, I need to still enjoy the present and stop worrying about what will happen in the future. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

This last week has been pretty crazy, but I am finding my motivation yet again! Yes…Even though I see a crappy day ahead of me, it helps to keep a smile on my face. Because every day has an end, and I think I’d rather look back on it knowing that I faced it with a good attitude.

To wrap it up, here’s a bit to keep you happy.

Bucket List Adventures: I wrote a letter to my 30 year old self telling me to get off my butt and make my dreams come true, if they haven’t already. I’m always of afraid of losing my passion as I get older and want to keep my inner flame going. Secondly, I went in to a movie theatre on campus and watched a movie alone. I didn’t like it very much. Not because I didn’t like being alone, but because the movie, Her, was incredibly stupid. I mean it…dumb movie, not to be blatant or anything. Just couldn’t relate to the character falling with the voice of Scarlett Johansson in a computer, even with her breathy voice.

A Dozen Things About Me I Am Okay With

Published February 25, 2014 by konchk
Little troll says it's okay to not be perfect. It's okay to settle for happy :)

Little troll says it’s okay to not be perfect. It’s okay to settle for happy 🙂

As it is Tuesday, and I am supposedly supposed to share a bit about myself, I will listen to my good ole friend, Sully, and write about what I like about myself. But despite what he thinks me having “low self esteem” and always “putting myself down” this actually won’t be entirely too difficult for me. What people don’t know is that I poke fun at myself, reject compliments, and typically don’t go on and on about awesome stuff about me, is because I don’t feel like I need to. Sorry, that sounds a bit conceited. But it’s a whole loving-me-for-me thing. I promise.

It might surprise you that the people that feel the most vulnerable about themselves are the ones who search for compliments, put themselves in gorgeous, glamorous lights, and deny any sort of fault they possibly may have. I don’t necessarily think I’m perfect…God no…but I feel perfectly fine waking up every morning knowing I have plenty of issues. Ha. I know I’m clumsy, so I laugh it off when I slip on the ice or trip over my own steps. I know I may have a funny-looking face so I joke and say how hideous I look. I know I can be a bit absent-minded and daydreamy at times, but I’ll keep on being all happy-like in my own little world. It doesn’t bother me none. I know I can be a bit lazy at times, but everybody needs to be a little lazy at times or they go crazy. Especially in college. I know I am kind of a scrawny string-bean, but I won’t put myself down for it. Everybody’s bodies are built a little differently. And I know I can make some silly mistakes, but so does everybody. I know that I am far, far from perfect, but I still do love being me.

1. I love that I can say the alphabet backwards. It kind of is a useless talent, unless I plan on getting drunk and pulled over anytime soon. Which I don’t, for multiple reasons (one being that I don’t have my driver’s liscense yet). But it is an ice-breaker and conversation starter at parties.

2. I love that I am able to look on the bright side of things, even if it doesn’t feel like there isn’t much good around to see. I believe more than anything that the strongest people try their best to keep their smile showing.

3. I love that I’m nice. It may sound a bit cliche, but it seems like our society puts down people that are just nice. You know, the whole “nice guys finish last” ordeal. But simply being nice doesn’t make you any less strong-willed, confident, or successful. And it sure doesn’t make you anymore fragile. Just imagine how difficult it actually is to put up with others crapola with a bit of sympathy. It’s actually fairly difficult to be nice and get treated with respect. But not impossible.

4. Keeping the positivity thing in mind, I like that I am able to move past my regrets, mistakes, and heartbreaks. It makes me seem pretty flippant about my situations, I know. However, I try to keep myself moving, looking for what others people have to offer me, and mostly what I have to offer others.

5. I love that I am curious, always looking for ways to understand absolutely everything and everyone. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I do not know everything, and that not everything is as what it seems. It’s all part of the journey, I suppose. But that is, I guess, part of the reason why I am so enthused about exploring the world of psycho-ology.

6. Even though I am a very sensitive and emotional person, I am indeed pleased in how my way of thinking has sort of changed since leaving that strange world of Saint Paul. I am more prone to rational thinking than emotional outbursts than I used to be. Or is it the other way around? Not entirely sure yet.

7. I actually do like being very imperfect. It makes people feel a bit more comfortable around you.

8. I love that I place much more importance on the right things than I used to. I have grown to having unbreakable loyalty to the good people in my life: my lovely friends and family.

9. I love how weird I am. I am proud to be a part of a Cheaper by the Dozen family and to have been born in my mother’s bedroom. Amongst many other oddities.

10. I love being passionate about the things I’m passionate about. That sentence doesn’t seem quite right, but neither do I. I have to be passionate, though, because the only for me to get things done is to be absolutely-dutely enthralled about them.

11. I love that dogs and babies just stare when I’m around. It might be because I’m kind of a strange human being, but it also might because babies/animals have some special, instinctual sense about people…and that makes me feel a bit special myself.

12. I love being me.

Well, I sure do hope that is good enough for Sully. Have a lovely night all 🙂

Bucket List Adventures/Sunday Quote Smushed Into One Post

Published February 16, 2014 by konchk
Paparkahar, my lovely new pet rock.

Paparkahar, my lovely new pet rock.

I do “sinceriously” apologize for playing hooky on writing my usual post yesterday…I was deathly tired and was too lazy to turn on my computer. But I will fill you on my bucket list adventures for this past week. As per usual…I didn’t do anything thoroughly exciting quite yet, but I do hope you will at least be a teeny bit amused.

First of all, I finally mailed a care package (don’t ask me why it was on my list. I just always thought it’d be something fun/nice to do). I sent it to ma sister for her birthday (which was about a month ago, but what are you gonna do?…)/Valentine’s Day present (which will still arrive after Valentine’s Day). I got her lots of goodies she’ll thoroughly enjoy, including Warheads (can’t find them anywhere nowadays except for in that Spencer’s store in the mall), a gift card to Victoria’s Secret, and a bunch of girly-girl stuff. Basically, I gave her stuff I’d like to get in the mail, because we like all the same things.

My other item I crossed off was to get a pet rock. Yet again, another sort of random/pointless/not so entirely exciting or daring/slightly boring item on my bucket list. But like my other thingy I crossed off this week, I always wanted one, so there you are. Back to my point, I got one! And he is flipping adorable. He is an owl. His name is Paparkahar (from ma mummy’s bed time stories).

So, that’s about it with the bucket list thing. I know I was hoping to stick glow-in-the-dark stars on my ceiling in the pattern of the legit constellation, but it’s going to be a bit more complicated than I had anticipated. Anywho, I do hope you all enjoyed my little escapade.

Oh! Quote of the week! SUNDAY…Almost forgot.

3 o’clock is always too late or too early for anything you want to do

-Truman Capote 

I don’t quite know what this quizzical saying means, but I liked it a bit. Something about doing whatever you like, even when it’s 3 o’clock?….I dunno. If you have any insight on what this apparently life-changing quote means, please do comment. Otherwise, I’ll just Google it.

Well, this is where I ditch you all…I hope all of you have a wonderful week ahead of you! 🙂

 

 

What Neuropsychologists Have To Say Concerning the So-Called Laziness Daydreamers Exhibit

Published February 13, 2014 by konchk

Learned some pretty nifty stuff this week in my Neuropsychology class. Fun fact: Did you know that the same area of the brain that is active when carrying out an action (pre motor cortex) is as active when you think, watch, or imagine carrying out the action? That’s right…my daydreaming has increased ma skills.

In fact, there is a story of an American soldier who spent time in a Prisoner of War Camp who, by just thinking about playing golf, became this phenomenal golf player when he was released. Read this story for a bit more insight: http://greatgolferwithin.com/102/an-incredible-visualization-story/. They call it visualization, but what really happened is that his pre motor cortex went through some heavy-duty firing.

First thing I really do have to say…poor man. Imagine having only having your thoughts to keep you company for seven years. No matter how much we all can hate war and all that blah blah blah. I know I’m not a fan of people dying for dumb reasons, but he sure better get some appreciation there! Second thing: That is some pretty powerful stuff right there. Science has yet again proved the power of…IMAGINATION
