monday on tuesday morning up!date.
Obsessing over: Nothing. Something about the holidays and being monumentally busy has left me with only the energy for contemplation of important things, like if i have enough cherry pie for breakfast, or if i’m going to have to add some candy to it to be full. You know, the really important things in life, especially amidst January’s Resolutionville of Health.
Working on: Finishing (and by finishing, I mean starting) writing for our new website. My mind gets all tangled up somewhere between having many ideas and executing only one of them in a decided direction; it starts getting rather choppy and mangled, as if my cell phone reception has gone on the fritz. The cell phone reception in my brain, in case you didn’t get that particularly fantastc metaphor.
Because I can, I became a joiner and decided to partake in FatMumSlim’s photo a day…thing…for January. She calls it a challenge, but I think to myself: how challenging is taking a photo with my phone every day? If that’s challenging, then I really need to reevaluate my life trajectory. But, whatever you call it, I thought it would be interesting to do this month, and I certainly like projects that don’t last outside of January, as do most of my resolutions.
If you join (and you should, really, i SWEAR it will be something resembling fun), just take a photo, upload it to wherever you are (i find instagram to be the easiest photo-sharing place, however) with a #janphotoaday hashtag, which hopefully will not be confused with some extremely frustrated lady named Jan’s quest to take a photo of the day, her plans thwarted by the internet once again.
I’m @saradarling on Twitter & Instagram, so come follow me; I will take you for ice cream.
Thinking about: How I feel like January doesn’t really start until the second week, at least mentally. The first week finds me making lists, sorting things out and generally wandering around working, for sure, but not terribly sure on what. It’s the Bermuda Triangle of calendar days, I tell you.
Anticipating: Book club tonight. I joined a book club, FINALLY, not because I didn’t want one for ages and ages, but because I just couldn’t find one. Seriously. Everyone who has a book club they adore, don’t tell me because I swear they don’t exist in my town! Until now. I have to feverishly catch up on my reading, as I do not want to be the new girl on the book club block who hasn’t deigned to read the selection while everyone frowns at me behind their finger food and bookmarks. Book club shun sounds terrible.
Listening to: Nothing, which reminds me that it’s a little too quiet this morning for my taste. How about…Radical Face, which despite having a particularly un-radical name, sounds fantastic to me this morning. This song especially.
Drinking: Nothing yet, but waiting on some tea.
Wishing: That my taste in things and my abilities matched up just a wee bit more. It’s painful to realize how sucky your very best is at times and to be patient and persistent to make them better over time.
