For Tuesday, March 8th, 2011
Outside my window... The sky is grey, but dry for the moment. I see the lingering raindrops on the empty metal baskets on my porch railings. Everything looks quiet, grey & green...
I am thinking... That I often forget how much I love & need my solitude. How different I am now from the child I was raised as. How much the same my parents are. How I wish they lived closer, yet am thankful that I was given the opportunity to find myself & my path by them moving away seven years ago.
I am thankful for... Women. Today is International Women's Day & the 100th anniversary at that. I am thankful for all the wonderful, strong, powerful women I know both in person & online. You all inspire me.
From the kitchen... Is silence. The heater just turned off, the coffee pot quietly keeps my liquid life-force warm & all is still.
I am wearing... my orange Halloween PJ pants with the black cats & pumpkins on them & my second favorite plaid flannel shirt. One I stole from my dad in high school... ^-^
I am creating... a surprise for a friend. It's almost finished...
I am going... a little nuts. I just got over a cold (possibly the flu...) & am sick again. I've never been sick so much as I have this Winter. Half of me just wants to hide in bed while the other half wants to run around & do stuff. I'm making my sides compromise by not going back to bed, but staying home & studying. Benefits all around...
I am reading... the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series. Aaaaaaand I love it! Funniest shit I've read in a while. And she writes good sexual tension/sex scenes. She also writes about topics that most fiction writers won't touch with a 10 foot pole, yet she does it in a way that's not sensational. I love these books. Edward/Ted Forrester is my favorite character... =D
I am hoping... That all the people I know who are searching for jobs are able to find good jobs soon! Y'all know who you are, and you're all in my thoughts! ^-^
I am hearing... The train whistle as it comes through town. The clock on the wall ticking away the moments. The buzzing that the lights make when they're on. My neighbors thumping & thudding around on the other side of the wall. Traffic driving up & down the street.
Around the house... The kitties are asleep & I'm the only one home. Britt's visiting her sister & nephew, my dad is out at a coffee shop & I'm blessedly home alone.
One of my favorite things... is blogging. I never thought when I began that I would love this so much. Not only do I have my own little corner of the aether to ramble in, I have met so many awesome people through blogging, that my life is much richer, much fuller than it was before.
A few plans for the rest of the week: I have a lab report & an exam in Microbiology tomorrow morning. I have a research paper & an exam in A & P II Thursday afternoon. Also on Wednesday, I take my dad to the airport to head home right after class that morning. I have a meeting that evening for the community garden & then I start my seven day work stretch that night. At least I can sleep when I'm dead, right? o_O
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
One of my all time favorite anime, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing was my obsession for the last two years of high school. My friends & I even cosplayed the characters at our first anime convention. I am a shameless fan girl & love to read good fan fiction. ^-^
I printed out pics & plastered them to the walls ceiling of my bedroom in high school as well. Apparently I'm feeling nostalgic today, so I think I'm going to go re-read some of my favorite fics now... ^-^
