So I promised an update on why I’ve been so silent, and since its almost 2AM and I’m not sleeping, now seems as good a time as any.
To get into the story, however, I need to explain something first. I’m freshly 26 years old, and for probably about 23 years of my life, I’ve lived with my mother. Since I left college the first time in 2005, I’ve been a come-and-go houseguest. I’ll move out and be TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY PREPARED, DUDE and then 6 months later will have to come crawling back with excuses of “It’ll only be a couple weeks” and then suddenly its two years later. This has been happening ever since I was 18. Read the rest of this entry
If there was an illustration of my life the past two weeks, it would involve lots of fire and sudden drop off cliffs and screaming people standing on their heads. In short, lots of crazy.
I’ve been ignoring my blog, and I feel badly about it. But my life has been going through some changes. I promise, by Friday I’ll have a post up and I’ll tell you all exactly what you’ve been missing (although I doubt you’d miss it).
For now, I’m off to finish my homemade tortilla chips (maybe I’ll put pictures up!) and get shit DONE, ya’ll.
Okay, I won’t do that again.
Until Friday, everyone.
I love marigolds! They’re so pretty with their full heads and fall colors, and they smell divine. My mother hates marigolds, but I plant them anyway. I was so delighted today when I checked on my seedlings to find this!
My marigolds are sprouting, one of the first plants to do so. Read the rest of this entry
Gandhi is quoted as saying, “We must be the change we wish to see in the world.” I love this quote, and the message behind it, so much that I have a picture of him in magnet form on my fridge saying this. I am a firm believer in the idea of believing and practicing before preaching. You can’t really know what you’re talking about otherwise, right?
I looked at my magnet today and felt a deep sense of disappointment in myself. Today, I wasn’t being the change I wish to see. I advocate a healthy, all natural lifestyle, but I haven’t truly been living one lately. As I’ve written about before, I fell and hurt my foot many weeks ago, and since then I’ve been using that as an excuse to stay sedentary and not exercise more. Read the rest of this entry
Growing up, I only had a handful of friends that were what I would consider “religious” – visiting church every sunday, being involved with other religious groups or people, and actively believing in god other than the occasional curse. From that group, even less were alternative religions. I have one friend who’s been pagan for as long as I have, and recently reconnected with another friend from school who’s a goddess worshipper. There were never any strong religious people or statements in my life as a child and teen. I had to stumble my way through different world religions to find what was right for me, since the idea of religion and spirituality was something I focused on as a child that didn’t have any.
