Week 2: Random thoughts that cross my mind…

So, first thing’s first: WE GOT THE APARTMENT!! We’re signing the lease tomorrow and will be moving in January 1st! I’m so excited to start this new part of my life, but can’t help but be a little nervous. What if P discovers he actually can’t stand to be around me? What if something happens and 1 of us is unable to work? What if a hurricane/tornado/earthquake/tsunami/etc comes?!?! Ok, so I’m a little bit of a worrier…

I think it’s the control freak in me, I hate the unknown. You should see my planner, it’s color coded and planned to every second of my life, This definitely eases my anxiety about the unknown. (Side note: I’ve always wanted someone to throw me a surprise party, but with my inability to give up control of things, noone has ever had the ability because I end up planning something for my birthday before anyone has time to plan anything for me.)

But, the real point of my blog today, is little things/thoughts that cross my mind, that I think of for blog posts, but don’t think I have enough to write about to make it a full fledged post. I’ve seen a few other bloggers do this, so I’ve been inspired.

1. I think it would be so romantic to be someone’s one-that-got-away: I don’t know, maybe it’s all the romantic comedies I watched growing up, but there’s something about knowing that in the end, you were the good one and someone let you go that I find very tragic and romantic…though, now that I read that back, maybe it’s more vindictive and self satisfying than romantic…

2. You have to let go of who you were, to discover who you are: Oh, this one is DEEEEP! I tried writing a blog about the person I used to be vs the person I am now, but it got very rambly and I felt like I really didn’t have much of a body or point. I like this thought though, in order to grow, you have to let go of who you used to be. I used to be very spoiled and selfish, and it took really hurting someone who didn’t deserve it to change me to the type of person I am today. I grew, because I forgave myself for being young, and stupid, and selfish. I’m not proud of the type of person I used to be, but without that experience, who’s to say I’d be who I am today?

3. By the time I get my bachelors degree, there are people who I went to high school with who will be getting their doctorate: This one just depresses me. I wish I had a time machine and could go back in time and slap 18/19/20 year old Sarah and tell herĀ  “Just get it done! Just go to school! Stop wasting time and money!!!”. I can’t go back though, and regretting it doesn’t make it go away. I just have to stick with it and get it done this time around!

Those are the ones for now, I know there are more, but I can’t seem to think of them at this time. What do you think? Are any of those snippets worth writing a whole post about? Tell me in the comments!(Ok, so I saw this on someone’s blog, apparently, if you put the word comment in your blog, you’re more likely to get comments…who knew? And also, who studies this stuff??)

Thanks for reading! Shout out to Robert for being my 1 religious reader! Really appreciate it and your comments!

About me

I told myself when I started this blog that I would not force myself to write. I would need to feel it and once I felt the urge, I would write what I felt. Not that I think anyone besides my friend A reads this thing, but in case anyone does, that is why I do not write often. I am not a very interesting person, and do not do many interesting things in my life, so I probably will not update on a very regular basis.

I’m not even sure that I’m feeling inspired about anything in particular today, but I feel like writing.

I think today I’ll write a few facts about myself, in case I have more than 1 reader out there

1. My nail polish is ALWAYS chipped.

Without fail, you will always see me with chipped nail polish. For some reason, my nails have a complete aversion to being completely painted. I will paint my nails, and without fail, same day, they will chip. I’m not sure why, but it can be pretty annoying. I always look incomplete.

2. I’m obsessed with cupcakes(well…sweets in general)

Seriously. It’s become a huge problem. I bought a 12 pack of mini cupcakes last Wednesday during my lunch hour(2pm-3pm), they were all gone by 6pm. I did not share. I love cupcakes and love baking. I once even considered going to school to bake. I’ve asked my bosses to cut my lunch to 30 minutes because I get into too much trouble having an hour to go to one of the many cupcake shops around my work.

3. My current job has made me realize what I want my major to be

After close to 4 years in school(I took some time off here and there and wasted a lot of time and money my first few years), I have finally decided on a major and will FINALLY be getting my AA in the fall. I currently work in customer service for a retail company, and working on this end of the job has made me realize that I want to work on the other side. I am now a Marketing major and will be applying to the Marketing program in the Spring. I am hoping to also minor in either Spanish or Advertising. I haven’t decided…

4. I am a child of divorce

And I couldn’t be happier. I’ve never once wished my parents had stayed together, nor have I ever known them together. I feel very blessed to have an amazing step dad as well as an amazing biological dad. I don’t think that people are meant to be together just because they have a child, and I certainly don’t believe it’s always better to stay together for the kids. My parents were 2 people who had a child who didn’t belong together. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

5. I’m not an outdoor person

I’m sorry, but given the choice of hiking or catching up on my DVR, I’m going to choose my DVR 9 times out of 10. I like the beach every so often, though due to my fair skin, I am unable to go to the beach for more than a few hours at a time, and like to go in my pool, but again, usually only outside for about an hour. My idea of “roughing it” is being without cable for a few hours or camping in a pop up camper that has air conditioner and a comfy bed.

So that’s me. I’m sure everything I’ve written here the 1 person who reads my blog already knows, but just in case you stumble across this and you don’t know me, welcome. I’m Sarah-too-boring-for-a-blog.
