Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I posted anything significant, and I’m excited to get into the groove of posting again. This New Years I made of list of hopes. Not resolutions, but hopes. Among them were:
Update my blog more
Get back into running
At the heart of my hopes is wanting to live life better, whittling away the extra anxieties in my life and giving more time to the things that deep in my heart and my body I want to do.
But doing what I want means giving myself grace when I fail too. I hit the ground running after Christmas break and have just finished up doing laundry from the Christmas trip to Cali. Here’s how I did with my new years hopes in the month of January:
Updated blog once
Ate Mac and Cheese straight out of the pot, slouched back on the couch after a long, long day on more than one occasion.
So I declare February my new new year, begun with a restful weekend out of town, and christened with a beautiful sunny day.
And to mark this new new year, here are some new amazing things in my life:
The snooze button. Who knew that waking up 10 minutes early and hitting snooze would be so amazing. Also, I’ve started going to bed at 10:30. Getting enough sleep has been one of best parts of new new year.
Running. Physical therapy is the new black magic. On Saturday I went for my first run in a year and a half. Now I just have to wait for it to be light enough in the evening so I don’t get raped when I go for a run.
Sufjan Stevens. It’s taken me a long time to get on the train, but I was listening to his Christmas album a few weeks ago and everything fell into place.
BDG jeans for 30 bucks. Every woman has to find her jeans. It’s more of a struggle for some than others, but every one has to put up with too low, too tight, too short, too long, too awkward, too flary, too skinny jeans. Well I found me some lady jeans, except they’re too expensive. Unless they’re on sale. And they were on sale for $30!
