I've been lazy..BUT, also feeling guilty that I haven't done any good posts in a while. So I figured I'd do a half-ass post, just to make myself feel better. I'm not sure if it'll work, but better then nothing! Anyways, I just wanted to share some of my current favorite songs with you! I've always felt like music was a key part to me being able to function. So, I hope you like these few songs and maybe even fall in love with one!
If you like the bottom two you can catch other Folkidelphia sessions HERE!
Phew! I've gotten so behind on responding to my mail! I finally got all caught up! I sent 17 pieces of mail! I think that's the most I've ever sent! It feels so good to be caught up. Although it didn't last long, I already have letters I got this week that need responses! Oooh I love getting mail!
As my mail production goes up I've noticed my blog posts and reading blogs have gone down. I logged into my Bloglovin today and have 456 unread posts! I just sighed and figured I'd deal with it later. Also my blog posts have been lazy. Is there ever a balance? Or is there never enough time! Although I imagine if I kept up on my blog AND mail I would have no social life. (Not that it's very epic or exciting to begin with..) Maybe some prioritizing is in order?
I haven't been doing very at posting all my sent mail BUT, I've been doing really good at photographing it or scanning it in. Why I don't just post as I go is beyond me. I was digging around in my photos and realized I had a whole bunch that I have yet to post! So I figured I'd just do one long post with lots of photos and get all caught up!
Ahhh! Last month went by WAY to fast!! I didn't even realize that the month was up until Zoei reminded me that I need to pay rent. February wasn't too good to me, but the past is the past! On ward and upward, right? Heres a mini list of accomplishments!
I should do more posts that are written with my typewriter. I think it looks way neat. Although not very time efficent. Plus my typewriter doesn't have spell check, thus adding on more time. Anyways, I was catching up on all my mail this weekend and drew a little mail monster for one of my pen pals. I'll admit its a bit cutsy for my liking, but I know she'll love it!
Phew, yeah yeah I know this post is a little late! Better late then never! Hope you all survived the quick month of February! March should be better! *fingers crossed!*
I just got back from one of the worst business trips EVER! Ok, ok...thats a bit dramatic. But I didn't really enjoy myself to say the least. 3 days of running around doing odds and ends, talking to lots of people. Ugh, I am really not one for small talk. My anxiety was way outta control but I am happy to say that I didn't cry (in front of any one) OR scream and run away. Both things which I really wanted to do. So my plan was to post some photos of my trip. I then realized that I didn't really take any photos of people. Mostly cause when I was around people we were all busy doing stuff. I didn't want to be that weirdo that made everyone stop what they were doing to snap a photo. Plus they probably wouldn't have stopped anyways.
The one photo of my and Zo that I took! Its not a very good one and we had been in the car so we aren't looking the best but who cares! Also, we have some really big teeth!
I hated this carpet by the end. All it does it make you dizzy.
My name badge!
My ukulele which made it possible for me to get rid of my anxiety enough to fall asleep each night. Not that I ever got much sleep having to wake up at 5 am.
Zoei on the other hand had no problem getting to sleep.
My fancy dress! I'm so mad that I didn't get pictures of Zoei and I in our fancy clothes! We looked sooo good! But we were way to busy running around and forgot to snap a picture. By the time we got back tot he hotel we were so tired it didn't seem worth it. Plus I ripped off my shoes and tights as soon as I possibly could!
Creepy hotel hallway. I kept thinking to myself, how can this hotel make it look less like the Shining? Still haven't come up with a solution.
Well there you have it! I'm glad to be home and back in my own bed! Also now I have time to blog! Oh how I miss writing nonsensical posts!
As you all know I'm not very fond of photos of myself. I am making great efforts to be less critical of myself AND taking more photos. This was one of my new years resolutions last year and carried on to this year. So I'd thought I'd share a couple photos of myself. I must admit I don't look very "attractive" in either of these, but that's not really the point. Also I got a hair cut, so I took before and after pictures! It didn't change too much, but I still enjoy getting my hair done! Now my hair doesn't try to strangle me in my sleep!
I'm really good at pulling a funny face. I'm not sure why I do it, I just do. Nervous-ness I think.
In the morning I will be off! Traveling in a beast of a van with people that I'm not too keen on, going to a place that I don't really want to go. I'm off to the lovely land of Las Vegas for a work convention. I shouldn't be complaining though. I do enjoy my job and am grateful for the opportunity. BUT, I really don't want to go! (insert whiny voice here!) Luckily for me my partner in crime, Zoei, gets to suffer along with me! Also I have a few good books that I've been meaning to catch up on and I made a MASSIVE PLAYLIST to keep my brain from melting.
Now, my plan was to get all my blog posts queued and ready to go in my absence. But recent events have prevented me from getting it all done. I woke up this morning feeling ready to write and share SOMETHING, anything with the internet world. But alas, time didn't feel the same way. So, I'm just gonna have to not blog for half a week. Which saddens me. I enjoy coming home and relaxing in front of my computer and unloading my thoughts on to you all!
Till we meet again? I'll try to post some random photos or something. Although I doubt I'll see anything aside from old insurance agents and a bunch of boring business people. Sigh..
I love the ukulele! (If you hadn't noticed from my usual ukulele rantings!) The ukulele is pretty much amazing and if i could I would buy one for everyone in the world! Anyways, here a few ukulele songs that I'm pretty much in love with and wanted to share! I've also included the chords to all of these songs, incase you wanted to give it a go!
I never know how much I actually want to share about myself on this blog. But basically everything I write about is full of my thoughts and opinions anyways. This isn't a usual post of mine and is probably way to personal, so I hope you don't mind. In a weird way it feels good to write about it and express my current feelings. So here goes nothing..
On the 13th of February my beautiful grandmother passed away and the ripe age of 95. It wasn't too much of a shock, considering her age and current health problems. I think in the back of our minds we all thought she'd recover like the past few times this has happened. But alas, she is at peace. It's really weird to see how people all react to it. A few people of my family really disappointed me and the way they are reacting. I'm also taken back by who it affects and how. I was really lucky and got to make my peace in her final hours. I'm so blessed to be surrounded by family and taking the weekend to reflect on the impact people can have on your life. Life is a crazy, beautiful thing.
I'm good. My life is good. My family is good. Damn, thats a sweet hair do!
