Month: April 2013

Month In Review: April

At some point during tonight’s un-fun Phillies game I realized that it was the last day of the month. So thanks for the reminder, craptastical baseball game.

  • Read every day. Yay, I managed to keep this resolution again. I’m slightly disappointed in myself because I only read one book this month (and it isn’t Team of Rivals), but I have to remember that the point is to read; I never set a goal of reading x number of books a month.
  • Blog every day. I managed to keep this resolution as well. Again, the goal never had anything to do with quality (which is good for me, but maybe not so great for you).
  • Exercise every day. Does walking from my desk to the printer a billion times a day count as exercise? ‘Cause that’s about all I did this month.
  • Brush my teeth twice every day. I’m pretty sure I brushed my teeth every morning I left the house, but I know I went to bed without brushing my teeth a lot. I blame my electric toothbrush for this, by the bye. For some reason using the electric toothbrush just feels more difficult or more time-consuming or something and when it’s late and I’m tired I just can’t get the energy to do so. I got rid of my old manual toothbrush to try to force myself to use the electric one, but I think that was a bad move.
  • Stop drinking soda. As previously discussed, I was sticking to this resolution until the day I decided it was doing more harm than good.
  • Break out of my comfort zone. I think I spent a lot of this month actively digging myself deeper into my comfort zone. But I’m not going to beat myself up about it because I’ve spent enough time this month beating myself up over other shit, which probably led to the aforementioned behavior.

Yeesh, this started positive. But, wow, has it gotten dark. I don’t want to end in such a bad place. Let’s see, what are some good things that happened this month? I just got an email from Starbucks informing me that the Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino is back. And apparently there is something called a Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino, which I must try. The new Frank Turner and Andrew McMahon records came out and they are both fantastic. (Okay, I’ve only listened to the Andrew McMahon record once – it came out today – but I dug it.) I watched (part of) a live baseball game on my iPhone while in my car. How incredibly cool is that? Man, it is awesome to be alive in the 21st century.

Okay, I feel better now.

Until tomorrow.

Gah

Have you ever casually glanced at a clock only to be shocked by how late it is? That’s me right now. I’m not really sure how I spent the time from when I got home to now, but spend it I did. And now I need to go to sleep.

Until tomorrow.

Nope

I thought about writing the post I referenced on Wednesday, but no. I’m still too tired, which is weird since I spent most of the day in bed. Oh well.

On the plus side, I spent most of my time in bed watching episodes of my favorite TV shows that I’d missed in favor of baseball. I love the TV network apps that let me do that. Ain’t technology grand 🙂

Until tomorrow.

Friday List: Things Are Looking Up Edition

It’s Friday. Kyle Kendrick pitched a three-hit, complete game shutout. My temp job is almost over (thank God). These are things that do not suck.

Until tomorrow.

Nope

I’m still not going to write either of the posts I hinted at yesterday since I don’t have the energy to do either of them justice. You’d think that I would’ve had a lot of free time since the Phillies game ended before I left my office and I knew there was no reason to watch the archived game (stupid frustrating team), but you’d be wrong. I mean, I had free time, I just used it to do things other than blog (like watch a couple of episodes of TV shows I’d missed in favor of baseball).

And now it is time for bed. (By the bye, this whole going to bed before midnight thing is still really damn weird. It’s almost like I’m some sort of responsible adult or something.)

Until tomorrow.

Darn It

I knew I should’ve written the post in my head when I got home this afternoon. Now it’s late and I’m tired and I have no interest in writing it. I don’t even want to write the post I was thinking about this morning. I just want to go to bed. And that’s what I’m gonna do 🙂

Until tomorrow.
