I Do What I Want #29: In a Weird Place

Sometimes I just want to talk about random crap. No theme, no rules, just…whatever. That’s where I Do What I Want posts come in. This is where I…well, do whatever the hell I want. Enjoy…and be very afraid.

Hey my peeps! I have been a bit MIA this week. Lots of stuff going on in my life. Changes. Most of them good. Or at least better. I feel like this week has put me in a bit of a haze. Have you ever felt that way? When so much changes over and over again and you almost have a delayed reaction? Should I be happy? Probably. And I am, mostly. But even though these are good changes I feel a bit weird too. Like these changes make me feel stuck.

This is not the direction I saw my life going. I feel uncertain of how to proceed. I have these goals and they are getting muddled. But I sure have been reading a lot. When all else seems uncertain, read the shit out of books. Makes me feel better every time. Makes me feel normal. I should be doing so many other things, but reading has been my focus. This one trilogy I’m reading is coming to an end and I just effing cried over what happened. Ripped my heart out. I hated it, yet loved it. I will be doing a review soon.

Anyway. I just wanted to share a bit of my good yet uncertain life. Random: My nails are so long it’s hard to type right now. I hate having long nails. I thought one would break by now and then I would have to file them all but those buggers are lasting forever. Random: I only watched the last quarter of the Superbowl because the Packers weren’t there so I’m bitter and don’t care about any other team. But…What the hell Falcons? Ugh, annoying. Anyway, now I’m watching all the commercials from the recording and I’m disappointed. So far I have barely laughed and no crying at all. Stupid heads!!! I want amazing commercials! It’s because the Packers didn’t play. Everything got tainted!

    I used to enjoy sitting up late to watch the Superbowl here in the UK but I can’t stay up like that anymore or it throws off my sleep pattern for a week. I can’t be feeling tired and ill with so many books to read! My team are the New Orleans Saints.

    I love these posts of yours. ♥

    I think I’m feeling kind of similar. I’m seeing some changes in my life too, and I guess they’re good changes, but they’re still making me feel weird? I think it’s all triggering some kind of “WTF am I doing with my life?” crisis. *sigh*

      Exactly. I hate thinking about serious shit but these changes are making me face things I am not prepared for yet.

    I’m glad to hear that there are some good things coming your way. Although, I hope you are able to adjust to them and find the good things they bring. It’s always hard when life changes on you and takes a direction you weren’t expecting… even if it is for the best.

    As for the Superbowl… I watched the Puppybowl. LoL I let my dog out and people in the neighborhood were shouting and yelling. So I went in the house and told the Mr. that the game must be getting good and that’s when he looked it up and they’d just gone into overtime. We watched that portion and that was it. Then I googled Lady Gaga’s performance and I have to say, while I wasn’t a big fan of hers prior to last night, I would LOVE to see her live. She killed it with all the running around, dancing, outfit changes, and she was still able to sing her heart out on tune. Major props go to her.

    I feel the same… but it was b/c the Broncos weren’t there. 🙂

    Reading is a good distraction. I’ve been binging on Netflix. 🙂 Glad you loved that trilogy and hope you find another just as good soon. 🙂

    All change is difficult…even good change…hope you get your head wrapped around it all soon. I don’t normally watch much football..but we watch the superbowl and wow what a game…no matter what you may think of the Pats (I am a NE sports fan for as much as I follow sports) they really played their hearts out that last half and overtime.

    Changes can be difficult or strange sometimes, but I hope these changes work out for you. I am still figuring out where my studies will take me. But that is life.

    Don’t get discouraged, sometimes these things happen because we’re meant to pursue a different path. From experience, as long as you don’t fight it and keep making the most of things, the outcome is usually much better than what we planned. 🙂

    YOU aren’t stuck unless YOU let YOURSELF be stuck! You have to imagine me screaming that at you like a juiced up motivational trainer. 😀 Seriously though, hope the new changes work out. And don’t even get me started on that game.

      I know. It’s like I know I have the control but it doesn’t always feel that way.

    Ha. I agree. What was up with the Falcons?!? They were doing so well, hitting the game hard in the first half. Then the second half happened. Ugh! And the commercials. Oh my. They need to step up their game as well. There were a few cute ones but nothing that overly wowed me. Nothing for the last few years actually.
