stuck on you

31 January 2011

So. January 31st, eh?  It shouldn’t surprise me that the month is ending, but it is.

I contemplated doing an end of the month wrap up post, but well, there’s just too much clouding up my mind right now.  So you’re getting that mess instead.

  • I am still, in no means, adjusted to living at my dad’s.  My sisters (and their attitudes) frustrate me daily.  The eye rolling, the correcting everyone, talking over everyone, the one-upmanship and holier than thou-ness… it’s all endless.  I’m trying to not let it affect me, but it is.  It’s why I hide in the cold basement with the cats.  I realize this is just a temporary situation, but it’s still hard.
  • I’m so grateful to have found Duneland Friends Meeting.  I haven’t been to Meeting (aka church) for a while.  I’ve missed this stillness and quietness.  And in my current situation, it’s much needed.  It also means I don’t have to attend my family’s church.
  • I can believe that they’re offering “Creation Science” at my sisters’ homeschool co-op — I just wish it wasn’t true.
  • I’m planning a trip to see this lady.  I’m excited.  Very excited.
  • I’m also getting Enthused too…
  • I completely agree with everyone.  Chris and I aren’t really breaking up, but transitioning from a romantic relationship to a solely platonic one.
  • I still hate my endometriosis.  It sucks.  I hate feeling weak and in so much pain.  I especially hate getting tired and worn out from simple tasks or just walking up the stairs.
  • … sometimes I think that I don’t actually have sisters, but I have elephants.  Or hippos.
  • I am absolutely obsessed with Chex Mix right now.  I cannot get enough of it.  I’m fairly certain they’ve put crack in it.  I don’t really care.  I just want need more.  Particularly the “bold” flavor.  And their puppy chow (or “Muddie Buddies”)… and the cheese.  AND ALL OF IT.  (Seriously, Chex Mix, SPONSOR MY LIFE.)
  • I just want to be back in Chicago.  I miss the city.  I miss not needing a car, and having almost everything within bus or train or walking distance.  I don’t like that I can’t just go meet up with my friends.  That I can’t go to meetups or send offs.  I dislike that I can’t take advantage of the free days at museums and the aquarium.  I miss having a variety of restaurants to choose from.  I miss bars like Four Moons.  I miss my nerds — Renegade & Mucca — like crazy.  I absolutely cannot wait to be back.
  • Still struggling with 140Days.  I’m forever grateful for those who’ve supported me thus far, but I’m still far from my goal.  I know it’s not going to happen overnight, but this is just a big thing for me.  I’m actively searching for design contests and grants and such — not only because I need them, but the part I’ve been struggling with is just asking for people to donate.  I need it, but well, it’s still something I’m working with.
  • Job interview on Thursday (assuming I can get back to the city).
  • I’m attempting this re-branding thing, where I re-brand/repackage items I use daily.

There’s still a bit more muddying up my mind… but that’s sort of the main chunks.

So, what’s stuck in your mind?
