sigh. no. that'd be crazy (and boring). let's talk about me instead.
a fresh blog feels good. a new tag from chelsea to help get the ball rolling feels even better.
5 randoms (you know the drill.):
i was a boy 3 years in a row for halloween. the costume consisted of a painted black eye and baseball cap. how stereotypical. but that's how people threw down back then. you used what you had laying around the house or you made it from scratch. like when spencer's mom dressed him up as a mummy using only toilet paper. the entire thing had unraveled before he even got to his first house. now that's a halloween costume.
i stopped wearing jewelery a long time ago. i made a conscious decision a few years back, let all of my earring holes close, retired the necklaces and bangles (i never wore bangles), and now only ever wear my wedding band and watch. i won't get into all of the bombastic reasons as to why, but it's one of the few life decisions i've actually stuck to thus far.
i'm a one-trick pony. none of my hobbies can co-exist together. that would mean having some sort of balance in my life. balance...not really my thing. so instead i binge and purge. healthy, i know. i'm on the tail end of a running/workout binge right now. not sure what's next. maybe i'll pick up scrapbooking.
i rarely make new friends. after X amount of years wondering what was wrong with everyone else, i realized the problem was probably me. maybe it's because i stopped wearing jewelery...who knows.
tv is my boyfriend. it's true. he is. about a year ago i attended a meditating class looking to find my inner zen. the very first thing our instructor taught us was that there were all different forms of meditation. we each needed to find out what worked best for us. he spoke of sitting in silence, going for walks, reading, watching tv....wait. watching tv counts as meditation? i'm in.
needless to say, i skipped out on class early, got home just in time to catch the season premiere of lost and haven't looked back since. so now when i zone out in front of another bravo marathon, i'm allowed to say that i'm not being unproductive...i'm simply chasing my inner zen.
