Tempus Fugit

This week has been pretty good so far. Enjoying the crisp almost-Autumn we're enjoying right now - much better than the record-breaking heat we had before. I've also had more chances to talk and hang out with friends.

Zombie Walk was awesome! The first time I've ever been surrounded by so much blood and gore and NOT lost my lunch...  Anyway, a heck of a lot of fun. Went to the grandparents' afterward and enjoyed my family laughing hysterically as I am standing there covered in blood... Now I know who not to rely on if I'm ever fatally injured! ;)

Work's going well. Still busy, but I'm just learning to take that as a good thing. Still skating - and wishing I could sleep in 'til noon after I get home.

Stuck

I feel like I've said this a million times. I thought at this stage in my life I was supposed to be past the point of stuck in an undefinable liminal state. Ok, maybe not undefinable. I just feel lately like I'm stuck. I do "grown-up" things, but still feel like a kid playing dress-up half the time. I thought life ended at 21, so surely I'm supposed to have it figured out at 25, right?

Not so. Apparently.

Maybe that's the whole point. Maybe I'm never supposed to figure it out. Maybe life's just a journey and it's not about where you end up or your ultimate decisions, but what you do with the time given you. Maybe I just need to stop worrying that I'm stuck and just go out and find ways to enjoy life.  Maybe I need to stop stressing about where I'm supposed to be and just enjoy where I am right now. Maybe life is just a whole slew of maybes and there's no getting beyond that.

NoiseTrade

I think I just went kinda crazy on NoiseTrade... but really! It's so fantastic. All the free music I want (legally!) and it only takes a tweet and download time (by the way, apologies to those on Twitter as I have just clogged up the feed with... quite a number of NoiseTrade ads).

Favorite right now: The Vespers (quartet from Nashville). Really like their sound even if it is a bit more light than I usually like. I'm still trying to figure out if the accent on "Not So Nice" is affected or genuine.

Anyway, I just wanted to spread the NoiseTrade love (without giving you overflowing inboxes). It really is awesome. And now that I've downloaded over 2 GB of new music... I think I'll be set for awhile. Then again, who knows. When awesome music is free, there really is no telling.

Enjoying my day off. Chilling in Borders and just taking a moment to slow down and just enjoy 'being'. I feel like lately I've built up a lot of stress and have been carrying it around everywhere I go. So this is me attempting to move past that and enjoy life. Well, if not enjoy at least not being tempted to jump out a window any time soon. (Granted, seeing as I'm garden-level jumping out of the window wouldn't actually do anything. I'd just land face first in a mulched flowerbed).

Getting ready for Derby tonight. Been feeling under the weather lately, so we'll see if I make it all night. I figure I have to at least attempt it otherwise I'll end up hating myself in the morning.

OH! Newsflash: The car is out of the shop and I was not charged at all! This is the first and only time I've probably ever debated giving a mechanic anything (well, anything that wasn't his due, like the whopping repair bills to which I'm accustomed...) Cookies may be in order.

Rather Blustery Day

I l-o-v-e this weather! Seriously, I could go forever without having to deal with summer, I'd love to never have to shovel snow again, but give me this cool, crisp, blustery loveliness any day. Me encanta. Fall's not officially here yet, but it's sure starting to feel like it. It's "cooled down" to about 75F and it's wonderful.

Should probably think of something fun to do today... (I am currently ignoring the dead cockroach in my bathroom that I do not have the courage to even sweep up) But what to do? Movie? Nothing is really catching my fancy. Was going to go to the Garlic Festival, but just too expensive. Was going to go to the art museum and made up my mind too late. So... nothing much left to do - except go home and sweep up the dead cockroach. I need to buy a vacuum. I'd feel much more comfortably vacuuming it up. Ick.

Random post, guys.... Sorry about that.
