In the Present Moment

Several entries are friends-only. Feel free to say hello.

If you want to be ignored or banned, just insert a bunch of extraneous 'lol' in your sentences. I hate that. I'd like a Find & Replace feature that substitutes 'lol' with 'I'm a turd.'

It was supposed to be a ride really but it's turned into something more. What have I gotten myself into? I did it to myself unwittingly. And now I feel vulnerable. I'm tired too. The unsteadiness is tiring.

What an up and down day it's been.

I felt excited today. The most excited I've been in a long time. I'm not used to being excited.

Falling asleep by midnight would be ideal. The flurry of excitement is wearing me out. Even more so when I haven't fallen asleep at a decent hour lately.

If I drank alcohol, now is about the time I would be opening that bottle of beer or wine.

I'm wondering if you made the move but I refrain from asking because I don't want it to feel like you're being held accountable for what you said.

I'm pretty sure you'll email me if you've moved.  I don't know why I'm so curious about it in the first place.

Smile on my face.
Over the weekend I had the urge to get away for a few days so I started looking at travel options.  A brief trip would be a really good way to clear my head and freshen things up.
Everything's falling into place very nicely so far.  Actually, it's more like everything's happening perfectly.

Worked a lot today. Steady and calm.  Where did such energy and endurance come from?  Must have been the dried dates.  And maybe it's because I skipped dinner yesterday.  Had a late night snack instead.  When the body has little to digest, things are different.  Will leave it vague like that.  No motivation to go into it.  Or maybe it's because I spent nearly an hour writing in my journal before going to bed.  Anyway, I feel slightly pathetic for trying to find the reason behind a productive day.  Like there's a formula I can repeat and use at will.

"Today, we have activist spectators. Edward Snowden, who leaked a trove of highly classified documents, should be understood as a citizen who exercised what I argue is an inalienable human right: not to be a perpetrator."

I could use a little bit of friendship right now.

It would be nice to have someone to talk to at the end of a day like today.

Mainly I complain here, don't I?  *sigh*

How could you do this to us?!?!

How could you do this??!!

DON'T BE DEAD ...

Earlier in the week I was looking forward to the weekend. Now Friday's here and it feels anticlimactic. I feel a little like I don't know what to do with myself.

According to the weather forecast, tomorrow is going to feel like 14° F, and I'm actually looking forward to it. It'll be an improvement over the past two days. I'm eager to go for a walk. I feel like 14° is manageable.
