Internet Wandering

Some good reads you should check out while I spend my weekend creating experiences to write about and hiding out with my netbook pondering life and ignoring carpal tunnel (What are your weekend plans?).

I’ve been so anxious lately. General, obscure anxiety. So this post came at a perfect time for me. Judgment does not come from a high place looking down. It comes from a scared place projecting out. Like a frightened animal baring it’s teeth.

Being a twenty-something is hard work. It’s not what it used to be so the adults (because I don’t consider myself an adult? I’m not sure. Older adults?) don’t quite understand why we’re here doing what we’re doing living in our childhood homes or not quite settling down. Or working our “dream” jobs or even know what our dream jobs are. 10 Things Nobody Warned Me About My Twenties

A Manifesto on Calorie Counting that I only partially agree with (I think calorie counting can be helpful for figuring out how much of the right foods someone should be eating.

I want to chalk my hair.

It’s Already the Middle of January

I go through periods where, though I feel like it’s possible that I have tons to say, my words are stuck inside my mouth choking me as I stared wide-eyed out the window wishing for the snow to stop. Nothing feels important enough to write about, and yes not writing feels too important in a bad way. I think up posts that have nothing to do with actual writing. Then I ask myself why I am blogging if I am not going to write. Regardless, I guess I feel I owe it to someone to spit these words into the blogiverse and hope in time it corrects itself. (It always does).

In the mean time, here are some things to keep you going, widen your horizen or just plain entertain.

Recipes for a Green Monster Smoothie by Oh She Glows. I really do love green smoothies. I love them for breakfast, but it’s not really a great time to make smoothies in the a.m. if while I’m walking out to my car my feet become smoothies on the way. (I woke up to snow this morning, it turned into rain. The streets are puddles).

Why don’t you commit to three weeks of yoga? (The commitment is hard, I know. I’m working on attempting to do day one. Currently the way my monitor sits and the fact that my floor is messy is keeping me away from this attempt.)

The Golden Girls is an awesome show. Just ask my best friend. Orr you could watch this episode. It will definitely win you over.

And I leave you with my book suggestion of the day: The Hunger Games (trilogy, really) by Suzanne Collins. Dystopia, teenagers fighting to the death while the entire world watches obsessively, a boy whose father owns a bakery, colourful characters and a girl who doesn’t realize her actions are starting a revolution.
