Back on the horse that threw me

Ghoulish. Goulash. My cousin. Tiny babies. Little knitted things. There’s my stream of consciousness that I am floating back into the blogging world on. I realized that while I say I lack time to blog, that’s not necessarily true. After all, I manage to make time to do other non-essential things. The fact is, I am AFRAID to blog. Something BAD might happen. I might OFFEND somebody with my words. Oh wait, that did happen, didn’t it? And it was pretty awful. But no one died, and in fact, 20 months later, everyone seems to be much better off. So good.

And my blogging words aren’t the only ones that offended someone. I also managed to alienate someone with yahoo chat, but I still haven’t quite figured that one out, because I didn’t actually SAY anything. But I miss blogging. I miss telling my stories. Sure, I journal every day, but that’s not quite the same, is it?

Now, here is what I don’t have time to do realistically: maintain 6 domains with fresh relevant content. So, I’m not going to try that. What this means for me is that my other blogs will remain active, but they will be primarily cash cows. This blog will get the stories, all of them. Stuff about my schooling, my crafting, my reading, my children, my whole fricken-fracken life. Yay you, yay me, woohoo!

Now then, it seems somewhat traditional to post a list of goals for the year, here in the first week of January, but I am not going to do that. I’m a non-traditional sort of gal. Besides, I already know what my goals are, and I’m thinking you’d rather hear about what I AM doing and HAVE done rather than a mile long list of things I plan to do. So, no goals today, except the blogging ones: I plan to blog, and I plan to do it on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

And here is some other stuff I AM DOING:
I’m back into The Artist Way.

I am smoking a fake cigarette instead of real ones.

I am using and loving the WiiFit. I laughed when I heard you could work out by using a video game and your tv, but let me tell you, that thing kicks my ASS. But I love it!

I am getting ready for a new semester. I have decided to go with a dual major. Well, I guess dual degree is more accurate. I’ll be graduating in May of 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Creative Writing and a Bachelor of Social Work. I am excited about all that, but this semester is going to be tight and tough. I am signed up for 18 hours, and I will likely keep 15 of those. But that’s a minimum of 30 hours per week on school stuff, and probably closer to 45 most of the time. Plus all the other stuff I need to do. And so because of all that,

I am spending this last week before classes begin tightening up my morning, stay home/get home, noon, 5pm, and evening routines. I’ve changed them daily since I drew them out the last week of December, but I am getting there.

Ok, that’s all I’ve got for today. Hopefully by Thursday, I will have found some of the actual stuff that I meant to blog about with pictures but managed to lose when I rebuilt my office/project area. Yeah, I could take a quick shot of that shambles, but I’m not. Ha!
