i slip into this every once in awhile without knowing it. busy is comfortable for me. i’m used to it. i know lots of people who think busy means ‘important’. i used to be one of those people. sometimes i forget and slip back into being that person.

i’ve gotten better at pacing myself and realizing that busy is really a pain in the ass and i’d rather be somewhere inbetween.

i psyched myself out over how long Monday was going to be with work and a 3 hour autoCAD class until 10:30PM. it’s been awhile since i’ve had once of those days so i was like christ, i’m going to be exhausted, i better drink lots of coffee and make sure i’ve got a bag of snacks to keep me awake.

it wasn’t that bad.

class went by pretty fast despite the fact the teacher was what i would call a fast mumbler with an accent and that my monitor was so big and couldn’t be moved so i couldn’t see the teacher’s screen projected on the front wall. i walked out a bit annoyed but now i can draw some basic shapes and with some time to play on the system i’m sure i’ll get better.

i realized that in class i found myself thinking, ‘go ahead and talk through these exercises. i’m going to learn this at home by myself.’

ahh…so typical me.

at home i can learn alone and not in the company of others so they will not find out that i have no idea what i’m doing.

i don’t know how i have no issue with being a sweaty wheezing mess while i run in public but god forbid anyone think i’m a slow learner.

fall is starting to blanket the city in fog and i feel myself slowly but surely coming down with a cold. this is how i know the seasons are changing. i’m sniffling and beefing up on vitamin intake and trading out coffee for tea. while i’m not a fan of getting sick i do sort of feel a sense of relief that my body is telling me to slow down. my brain knows it needs to and it doesn’t listen but it HAS to listen when everything else starts to shut down.

i’m looking forward to fall and while i’m not excited about wearing pants i’m excited for pumpkin flavored things, hats and scarves and maybe i’ll even get to see leaves change color somewhere.

    I love love love that picture of you smiling. And I’m cracking up over the puke-o-meter. I really hope you don’t have to update that during the challenge.
