Day 2? Shock gasp

I don’t know if it counts as “day 2” if it’s only a few hours after my first post, but it’s a different calendar day so I’m going to go with it.

Probably the last non-baking-step photo of food that will ever appear on this blog

I run into the problem of having so many things I want to say or do, and then being so overwhelmed by it that I just don’t do anything. It’s taken me half an hour and making fried eggs at 3:30 in the morning to even make it this far into this post. I have too many thoughts and stringing them together in coherent sentences tends to be a pain, so maybe blogging again will help sort that out. It’s been way to long since I’ve properly written–no freewriting, no blogging, no writing stories, nothing.

I’m on my last few days of vacation from work and trying to actually … do something productive but mostly failing at it by way of sitting on the couch with Netflix and/or Amazon Prime switching between a rewatch of Warehouse 13 and slowly watching through Blacklist with a friend when we have the time. I’ve spent most of my time cuddling the dog and just not leaving the house unless absolutely necessary. I took Thursday and today off from school so I would be able to enjoy a few obligation-free days before going back to the Grocery Store Hell that is my workplace.

It’s four in the morning and I’m almost finished with this episode of W13, so going to bed might be a fantastic idea.

Let us see if this continues on tomorrow.

Let’s try this

Owing to it having been several years since I’ve touched this place and having gotten seriously out of touch with blogging, I’ve decided to try to challenge myself to posting every day for the month of October (Blogtober?). I’ve never managed to do it before, and I figured it would be a good idea to try and actually accomplish it as one of my “before I turn thirty” goals … Not that I have many, but it sounded good when I realized I only have three months to go.

Buuut given that I know myself, I’m setting a few loopholes as far as “make a blog post a day” goes.

  1. Posts do not have to be full or well-thought out. They can be photo posts, random thoughts for the day, downloadables, or even something posted to my sketch blog for school (so long as I crosspost the link here)
  2. I can post twice in one day, or schedule an entry to post at a later date if I know I’m not going to be around/have time
  3. I can miss one day, as 30 days still constitutes a month

I will probably wiggle in some more loopholes around somewhere. For now, I’m going to go back to nursing my bottle of hard cider and re-watching Warehouse 13.
