So you’re doing fine, you’re living your life when suddenly one day as you’re driving back from work you’re suddenly struck with the realization that you hate your job and should quit today and in this realization you lose focus and have a crash–which is terrible because you need to more alert, like seriously.
But, now its August. And schools’ are back in session, children are no longer sitting at home playing on iPads but doing it at school now. Also, maybe you’re “back in session” too. Maybe a very long break calls for business as usual or the chance to reunite with old friends for coffee and chat about the good old days. Or even dinner if you’re feeling fancy. If you do the latter, tell me what its like because I don’t do reunions or anything like that. Families that do family reunions every year are cute, but probably dysfunctional in some way too. Getting a lot of people together who may not see each other that often if at all just because they’re “family” is grounds for disaster to occur if you ask me. There’s usually one or a few people to blame for it set up this way but if you’ve been to a reunion that was drama-free than either your family is not normal or you’re probably glossing over the truth.
So, be your own guest at your own party.
If you’re reading this when it is being posted (August) then you are in luck because August 24 is National Waffle Day and National Peach Pie Day and if you get into an argument with someone you love try to hug it out at the end of the day like a good Full House episode because August 25 is National Kiss and Make Up Day. Not to mention that August 31 is National Matchmaker Day. Oh, how things are beginning to become clearer. It’s all a set-up to make sure that I am not forever alone. How clever, internet. Or whoever came up with these holidays that we only honor in gifs.
I hope I made you smile and you think of following the blog for more! 🙂 I could have put in way more Leslie + Waffles gifs but I must stop. Ok, fine here you go.
Alright, well it is a new year so I guess that means changing things. In what way? Not really sure yet, but trying to get there slowly. Well, first off I have A LOT of books I want to read this year as well as movies I haven’t seen yet that I want to see. More than that, I plan to apply to different jobs once I get my resume and cover letter organized and critiqued a few times. It’s time to think about how I want to view myself in a few years or down the road.
A friend of mine got engaged last year and her wedding is in the Spring. It’s so crazy to think about, but it’s really happening. I’m thinking more school and more fun before I go there though. Also, today is National Hugging Day and supposedly we should all be happy. Not just today, but everyday. Hug someone. This is kind of crazy for me to be endorsing because as my family and friends would know, I am no fan of hugs. But, sometimes you just need a moment to grab a hold of a little love. It’s like assurance that it will all be ok, maybe not today or tomorrow but at least in that moment know that’s it’s ok to smile. Just a thought.
I mean to put posts out on Sunday’s. So, today feels like Sunday even though I know it’s Monday and it’s MLK day. Speaking of that, was Dr. Kings’s dream realized? Was it fulfilled in the way he thought it would be? I certainly think so. We take for granted the fact that we can go everywhere, there are no Jim Crow laws and no one is forced to do something they do not want to (well, ok this might be an exaggeration because kids have to go to school and such but you know what I mean). Yes, unfortunately in some places discrimination does exist. It can tear friendships, families, and communities apart. Society knows this, but still there are those who are stubborn in their beliefs. Still, we have come a long way. It would seem that people from all backgrounds respect the legacy of Dr. King and what he stood for. It was something that defined a generation and put an end to a tragic time in America’s history.
I want to keep to this, maybe I’ll post something tomorrow. The theme for this week is: Understanding why society changes the way it does in order to adapt to changing leaders. Or, whatever I decide to write about.
