Time sure does fly when you're sleeping...

Wow, I suck at this whole updating thing. I blame two reasons. 1) I don’t have an internet connection at my house, and 2) I’ve had a lot of things going on. My being lazy has had nothing to do with my absence. No sir.

Well, I’ve realized something about myself recently. I have never been happy where I am right then at that point in my life. Don’t get me wrong, most of the time I’m not unhappy, but I always seem to be waiting for the next stage in my life. I can’t wait to be older, out of school, completely independent, etc. It’s been like this since I was little. Now, it’s “I can’t wait to get married, have a 9-to-5 job, get an apartment bigger than a refrigerator box, etc;” in short, be a real adult. I’m sure this is a common complaint among young adults, it just seems to hit me really hard. And then I wonder, will I ever be content where I am right then? But then I snuggle up with my kitten and some Jack Daniels and realize that even though this isn’t my dream, it’s pretty good for now.

But, on to more fun and interesting things. I hereby make it known that I am attempting to become a regular gym person. By regular, I mean 2 or 3 times a week. I shall start tonight by attending the “Funk” class. I shall whittle my middle and wiggle my jiggle all at the same time. Sounds fun, right? Hopefully, I’ll be able to keep up with the sorority girls, cause man, do they go nuts on that gazelle-thing machine. So this is me putting it out there, because maybe I’ll stick to it if other people know about it. I even bought fluorescent orange Nike pants, in the hopes that dropping some money on this venture will make me want to stick with it.

  1. I used to be the same way - always waiting for what was around the corner. I can report that I really AM at a point in my life where I am happy. Is it because I got married, got the house and the kid? A bit, but I think it has a lot to do with being in my 30s and realizing that sometimes it is nice to just be thankful for the "here and now".

    Don't be too hard on yourself. :-)
