5:30 A.M. Cross my fingers on being able to wake up. I mean it. I am one of those people who sleeps dead through eight alarms. My body wakes up when it wants to wake up. Need to wake up and mentally prepare for the day. Ha! As if… Need the coffee. Need to feel pretty and dolled up so I don’t want to crawl into a hole and die by the end of the day 😦 The extra makeup and attention on my hair plays a bigger role on my mood than it should, I guess. Plus, I need to, quite a bit, wake up in time to catch the bus a little after 7…so I can…go to class? The later bus always gets me to campus a few minutes later than I would wish upon any human being in a hurry. And I hate being hurried in the mornings. I actually loathe it, if there is such a thing. I’d rather enjoy my morning walks, listening to the little birds tweet tweet and sip my yummy nummy coffee rather than stumbling over and/or feeling like some lion is chasing me. Disgusting.
8:00 A.M. First class of a lovely day. Not so lovely. Every school/work day. Good news is, by this time, I am more of my chipper self. And talk/giggle/doodle/plan my wonderful budget/fiddle my feet when I probably shouldn’t.
Around 9-ish A.M. Second class. More alert, I think.
Then there’s errands for a half hour-ish.
Then work. Until 5, most days? Don’t mind it. Money security does more for happiness more than one would think. At the very least, it helps anxiety.
Then I go be me the rest of the night. You fill in the blanks.
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!
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.
