I’m on the last day of this challenge, my fine friends! Thank you all for reading, and to those who decided to follow me, I really appreciate it. I hope to keep writing things you enjoy reading.
Something you struggle with
For any of you who read my April resolution, it was to exercise more. I really wanted to be consistent, and initially everything started out pretty great. I was exercising at least 4 times a week for 2 weeks. Then I missed a morning, and switched to start doing them at night. Then the tiredness set in again. I would be too tired to do it in the morning, go to work, come home, and be too tired to do it at night. It then became a once in a while thing, and that wasn’t going to get me any results. I eventually stopped doing it altogether, and have once again become a tired lump on the couch. I really hope my next months resolution helps me get out of this funk and get some more energy. I’d really love to stop struggling with having a full and healthy lifestyle. I am so committed in the beginning, but then whatever this extreme tiredness is sets in and I stop. If I can do a cleanse diet for a month, I surely can figure out how to exercise for a month (and then beyond!).
When I was younger, my brothers decided to watch “Mars Attacks”. I was too young to be watching it, but somehow it happened anyway. It’s supposed to be comedic, to adults, but to my little girl brain, it was far from it. The creepy little alien dudes had giant brains that weren’t inside a skull, eyeballs not in sockets, and they walked around turning people into skeletons. The whole movie gave me the heebie-jeebies, I had terrible nightmares and didn’t sleep well for a couple weeks. I’m not still afraid of this movie (although I don’t really want to watch it again), but it led to my fear of eyeballs. Also contributing to that was the movie “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, where a bad guy is run over by a steam roller and his eyes bulge out of his head. There’s just something about an exposed eyeball that makes me feel queasy.
Something someone told you about yourself that you never forgot
This one is a very difficult question for me. I know people have said nice things about me, but I’m so self deprecating that I haven’t really remembered them. In grade 8, our teacher read off a character quality that he found best described us as we walked across the stage at graduation. Everyone was so excited to hear what he chose to be theirs. Somehow, I was expecting mine to be something new; something I never thought about myself. Instead, he chose “creativity”, which to anyone who knows me is a big “well DUH”. I appreciate it more now, but I still have that little voice in the back of my head that wishes he chose something else. I guess that’s made it memorable, just in a different way.
