Writing And Sanity

It may shock you to hear this, but I can be a screwed up mess of a girl.

In all fairness, I must say that sometimes my messes do not actually originate with me. Sometimes other people are messing and the mess just oozes out and covers me like slime because I’m not quick enough to run away. Then it sticks to me until I can scrape it off again. I swear, sometimes dealing with people is just like herding cats.

Present company excepted, of course.

And most of my messes really do start with me, although I’d rather not believe that. So I don’t.

I Felt Tall

We’re going to get a little philosophical here on the blog today, but I hope you will indulge me.

I had a strange experience as I was walking around the trail this past week. I was walking along, minding my own business, and I suddenly realized that I felt tall. Literally. My legs seemed longer, my torso lengthened, my head seemed higher. At 5’5″, I’m not exactly short, but still. I felt tall.

The Benefits Of Blogging

Don’t take this the wrong way, but blogging can be a real pain in the a$$. Sometimes the very last thing I want to do is sit down and try to come up with something relatively entertaining to put on my blog. Like today, for instance.

Just kidding.

But, as with all good things, blogging is also it’s own reward. Over these past months while I’ve settled into the groove of being a semi-regular blogger, I’ve found that I’ve gotten many unexpected benefits from my pursuits.

Nothing To Say

As soon as I wrote my post last Thursday celebrating the anniversary of my blog and stating, with great conviction, that I would keep on writing, darn it, I found myself with nothing to say. Seriously. I sat down on Sunday to write my normally scheduled blog post, and my mind was a complete blank. Crickets were chirping in there. So I started moving furniture around in my living room instead.

I didn’t get any writing done, but the room looks mahvelous.
