Sunday Lately #65

27 March 2016

It’s been a couple weeks since my last Sunday Lately — oops? But I’m back, and joining up with the Blogger Tribe this weekend.

Blogger Tribe - Sunday Lately

This week’s words are: Completing, Visiting, Repeating, Writing, Scheduling.

Completing: my grad school application — finally. I hand-wrote my statement of purpose, and now I need to type it up and make sure it all make sense now. Just have to officially ask for my recommendations, and then schedule the GRE. Which I’m totally dreading.

Visiting: everywhere! Now that I have a reliable car, it’s almost overwhelming this freedom. I don’t have to wait on someone else’s schedule do the things I need or want to do. The hardest thing is remembering that I can just stay home. Like I normally did.

Repeating: this stupid battle I have with myself in the kitchen for too many meals. It’s not a “oh that’s not healthy” battle, it’s just more a “I have no idea what to eeaaattttt….” thing. I get so bad at making food decisions some times. It’s like, I just need someone else here to help make a decision. Or do the cooking.

Writing: off things that don’t deserve my attention. One of the best lessons you learn coming in to being an adult, is some things just are not worth your time or energy. And then also learn not to feel guilty for not giving them your time or energy.

Scheduling: my summer? Course registration opened up, and I wasn’t really planning on taking any classes. But then an opportunity popped up for me to do an internship, which would connect to my current internship and be amazing experience for future career stuff. So now I have to decide if I want to try that, and if I can get the aid for it… Hardest thing is that I need to get a job this summer, too. So there’s that.

I know, I know, not a massive update. I have stuff I want to share, just have to get around to doing so and getting back into the swing of blogging again.

    I’m glad you have more freedom now thanks to having a good car!

    • Meeeee too! 😀 Going to do at least one road trip this summer, even if it’s just to the cheese barn in Ohio.

  • I nevvvvver know what to eat or make, & for some reason is overwhelms me… & I often end up with takeout. I need to change this bad habit, stat!

    • I’d probably do takeout more, if I had better options here. Pretty much just pizza or cheap-ish chinese. Of course, now I can drive places, so… that hasn’t been helping.

  • Have you tried planning out meals? I find that if I set my dinners for the week on the weekend I can stay on track and am excited to have a game plan that way I know what to cook each night! Pinterest is great for that!

    I have such a hard time writing things off! It’s easier said then done in my book. I let the little things eat away at me. That’s something I have to work on!

    Good luck with your grad school apps! That’s so exciting!

    • I’ve tried before, but I get so fickle. Everything is just “in the moment” for some aspects of my life, especially food and my wardrobe. Some of that comes from living with endo — somedays you just don’t know how you’ll feel and what your body can handle. I did find, though, that when I wrote out all the possible meals I could make with the ingredients I had, that helped some. Because at least then I was looking down a list rather than staring at my fridge and cabinets on and off for a few hours! 😉

      And thanks! 😀

    I’m glad you’re enjoying your car freedom! 😀 And I so, so relate on having food yet not knowing what to eat. My cupboards can be stuffed, but if I don’t have a specific recipe, I just stand there and stare like WHAT DO I DO WITH ALL THIS?!
