SOCSunday: Procrastination

www.allthingsfadra.com

Undoubtedly I should be asleep right now.  It’s 2:49 a.m. But I’m not alas and I’m excited to actually be posting. Right now I’m in the stages of deciding whether to completely move to blogger or stay with wordpress.com.  I’m unsure as of yet.  (Post can be found at both places: fluffyflyydiva.wordpress.com andfluffyflyydiva.blogspot.com – what do you think?)

Anyway, I’m bad about self-sabotage.  My nemesis is procrastination. I will wait to there is almost no last minute.  Whether it’s planning meals, or waiting until after it’s time to close my mailbox to forward incoming mail, or still not having written the first line on my doctorate school application.  I have a getting started defect apparently.  I have students test in my bag that I need to grade.  I’ve been meaning to do my “weekly” mask now for two weeks. Good thing, I have it on right now.  Has to stay on five minutes. Lucky.

So, today, I’ve decided to grade the papers, and start the application. I’m sure the advisor is wondering what my issue is… Well, he can join the club, I wonder too sometimes.

Inevitable

Recently I’ve been having a battle of the minds type ordeal. Balancing the negative with the positive. Balancing others opinions and just taking steps to make the right choices.  It’s hard and I know somewhat unrealistic to expect people to be in the same place in their lives as I am, when they are not.  Yet, i’m seeking that now. I don’t want negative vibes, hidden agendas stopping my flow. Things that lead to second guessing, self imposed regression to not being the woman I want to be.

Hard choices have to be made, people have to be let go. Things have to be let go. Not because they are bad people, not even because they’ve done me wrong.  Our energy just doesn’t match.  I’m a realist and a dreamer. Yeah… how does that work. lol. I like seeing potential. I like seeing people chase and conquer their dreams, but I also pay attention to the things that happen that counteract those and I don’t try to act like I don’t.  How else can we deal with ourselves if we deny truth.

Anyway, I’m glad I’m posting something. I have several random posts running in my head.  However none of them seem to be making it to my blog.  In due time.  Still debating whether to switch to blogger or stay with WordPress.

SOCSunday: Direction

#SOCsundayHello good people! Now aside from the fact that I’m already bad about updating due to the sometimes hectic-ness of life, I came on today not really sure what I wanted to blog about. Wanting to however talk about some of everything. That’s how I am anyway, here there and everywhere with my excitement for stuff. So, I’m thinking about dabbling in the areas of nails, my hair, weight-loss, getting healthy, my growth as a person, teaching, good reads, good music, education. I love it. So, many different aspects of it. Even trying to further my own. But first I guess I have to show up and write. Right now however I’m not feeling the look of my blog, so I need to play around with that first. Then maybe I’ll be excited about showing up. Nothing heavy, at least once a week.
