Finally finished reading the third book of the Hunger Games. I kept putting off reading the books - but I’m glad that I finally did! Such a great little series. And now I’m even more excited to see the final movie!
Now I plan to finish reading The Fault In Our Stars that I started on winter break from school. And start on my long list over on goodreads.com.
Ever since I moved in January, I noticed I’m reading more, drawn to reading more. I no longer spend countless, pointless hours online doing absolutely nothing. I no longer spend my evenings on the couch watching crap TV. I am reading, doing yoga, cleaning my house, cooking, baking, coloring, crafting, playing with Elodie.
I am finally spending time on myself. As to where before, I was taking time away from myself by doing nothing that promoted my well-being, nothing that inspired me.
I guess I’m just feeling a little lighter these days. The winter is thawing. My heart is thawing. I am feeling free-er than I have in a while.
This post became rather poetic rather quickly. So I will close with this - I am so glad to be feeling like myself again. I was so quiet in the depression that held me under the water and the ice that built up over this winter.
I deserve to be.
I want to be.
I can be.
I will be.
TGIFF!!! This day drug on and on. I tried practicing my new signature while -not working- at work. It’s gonna be a tough change!
I also looked around online -again while not working at work- at fabric stores for lace. I’m pretty sure -even though I have already bought a dress- that I want to make my wedding dress. If it works out for me, I’m planning on putting my current dress up for sale through Once Wed or Tradesy.
I’m just not in love with the dress I bought. To be honest, I felt pressured to buy it since my mom loved it. So we shall see.
In other news, my windshield wipers decided they no longer want to work. That’s always fun. I can get them to turn on every once in a while if I jiggle the stick that the controls are on. Hoping to get some answers and solutions from the local mechanic tomorrow. Other than that, it’s just a lot of school work and pulling my hair due to a certain three-year-old that I live with.
