Resolutions and wishes

-Start exercising regularly in some form or another (definitely make that swimming every day in the summer).
-Keep up with driving practice (I've had my license for 4 1/2 years but haven't really driven much since then, so I built up a huge fear of it and get super anxious when I drive on multi-lane roads).
-Move out.
-Keep improving my outlook & moods by going to therapy and keep trying with the meds.

And not so much resolutions or goals as they are things I’d just like to do:

-Save up enough for a laptop (probably a used one that I’d improve on my own) $500-850.
-Save up enough for at least one small tattoo, if not the sunflower I've been dreaming of for years, expecting anywhere up to $500 for that.
-Get a bunny or take my cat with me when I move out =D (I don't think my parents will let me take her though, they are very attached).

Get home safely. I will, I do, I always do.

I think parking lots would be an amazing location for snow-photos. To best capture snow, one needs filler light, such as a big flash, or lots of bright lights spread out, which is exactly what parking lots tend to have!

 

Now to get a better camera and an empty parking lot…well, and the snow should start falling again. Plans, plans, plans.

Asleep in the city that never wakes up.

Maybe it’s just my mood, but I noticed a beauty in my face that I have not been able to see for quite a long time today. I have also felt very able to find the vocabulary that I know my brain is capable of conjuring, but I’ve been completely unable to pull up for as long as I can remember.

On the other hand, I’ve also been making a lot of typos lately. Maybe it’s the weather, who knows! If this is the Lexapro, I hope it keeps working. Experiment time: I start 20mg of Lexapro sometime next week. Let’s see what changes!

Signs and constants of my Christmas season

  • Eggnog in the fridge
  • My porcelain Santa figure on the mantle
  • Thinking about sledding
  • Another non-white Christmas (erm…meaning no snow) in the forecast
  • Naked tree in the dining room (to be decorated within a week of Christmas and no sooner according to our family’s tendency to leave it up till January is almost over anyway)
  • Different hairstyle than last year (that’s been pretty constant for the last 6 years at least, probably more like 8 though)
  • Looking forward to my winter date with Holcomb (a new tradition, but this will be the second time, so I hope it continues longer)
