Lately I’ve been having lots of random thoughts that are good fodder for posts. In turn I have ended up only building my drafts folder with single lined entries, but can my excuse this time be that it’s been my birthday week – come on, the best ones are always celebrated over several days – so there’s no chance I could’ve sat down long enough to develop anything substantial? Your ongoing forbearance, dear reader, can be your gift to me.
Lately … I have been thinking:
On getting anything done:
I’m not overwhelmed, I’m just underfocused.
On drawing, fiddling with a piano tune, etc etc:
I’m not as bad as I thought, just not as wonderful as I’d wished.
I’m having a love-hate relationship with kids lately. I adore them, from a distance. Someone told me it may be a coping mechanism…
Either that or I’m just a b*+€h.
On making green smoothies:
By now you’d think I’ve got these down to a science. Makes sense because lately they taste like a laboratory experiment.
On evolving my look:
This new haircut can either look really chic or kind of mom’ish … How is it that wearing cooler shoes dictates one’s perception of her blunt cut?
For someone who spends an hour watching makeup tutorials in bed the same way couch potatoes watch fitness videos while eating chips, I can’t ever expect to get my face done given the last three minutes I didn’t waste on You Tube before running out the door. Tip: keep concealer sticks in your bag, & lipsticks or glosses in all jacket pockets. At least you’ll have gotten that part of your face done.
I. Hate. Cleaning. #thestruggleisreal
Did you know that when Super Duper forgot to add a strip of bacon to my burger they gave me a side container of FIVE strips to make up for it? I wonder if I can use that complaint every time?
My long time aesthetician of thirteen years, Ms. Meticulous, is on indefinite leave. I am praying she gets through this difficult period. I am praying my skin gets through this too.
On multi tasking:
Laying on my couch typing this post with a 3Lab Skincare sheet mask on my face, I feel so efficient. If only I could eat crispy pata during yoga today so I didn’t have to choose between exercise & meeting hungry friends over lunch hour(s).
In the words of the ever insightful, Teacher A,
“Good thing we are another year older, we could use a little more wisdom.”
Hell, I can use A LOT more of that.
