Lately…

I’ve been hanging out in my PJs instead of leaving the house. I feel like being lazy, I feel like popping Pokémon on in the background and pretending that I’m working on blog posts when really I’m watching Pokémon. I don’t feel like going out, I feel like sleeping in, staying up late and not washing my hair.

Lately…

We’ve been ignoring our goals. Because I can, because I made them so I am in charge. See above point about feeling lazy.

Lately…

I’m running. Three times a week and improving all the time. You should see my toned buttocks. I’m not even sure if they are toned, but it doesn’t stop me asking Kris after each run “do you think my butt has gotten more toned?” and then doing some strange butt wiggle to see if it’s jiggling or not. It still jiggles. Dare I say it but I really like running – we’re not in love, we’re just friends, but I definitely enjoy the post run feeling. Not so much the post run sweat pits.

Lately…

I’m thinking about quitting my job, you know that PhD thing I’m meant to be doing. I hate it. I really do hate it. I hate getting up in the morning to go to it, I refuse to talk to people about it and I want to deny that it ever took place. Ignoring that I’m probably going to fail anyway due to lack of data, I still hate it. I took a step in the right direction and secretly applied for another job, just a part-time job, nothing fancy but something completely different. No science, no people who work in science and no PhD. I sent off the application a couple of weeks ago and I’m hoping to hear back, something, anything.

Lately…

I have itchy feet. Contradictory to the first point, but I have itchy feet to go somewhere, somewhere far away and very new. Asia, that’s where I want to be right now. No reason, I don’t even have a plan, I just want to uproot my life and take it somewhere else.

Lately…

I’ve been feeling better. Since the beginning of the year I’ve been floating around in a depression that I couldn’t seem to pull myself out of. Usually powering through is my way of dealing, but this cloud was more like treacle than air. But I’ve felt better lately. It’s all Pork Chop. He’s just perfect. OK he doesn’t know any tricks besides climbing on your face and he’s yet to actually come when called but he does answer to pumpkin seeds. It’s progress. I didn’t appreciate everything he could bring to the house until he brought it. I love putting my laptop down to watch him run around the sofa for half an hour and then ignore me in his box for the next half hour. Pets really do add something to a home.

Lately…

I’ve been thinking about blogging, if that hadn’t already come across with talk of too many photos and backlogged post ideas. I want to invest more time in blogging, but I want to invest available time, not taking time from other things to blog. That was something that crossed my mind with this part-time job, I would get more blogging time. I don’t know where I want to go with blogging, but I like making it into something, even though I don’t know what that something is. I don’t know what I think about blogging, I just know I spend a lot of time thinking about blogging.

Lately…

I’ve been thinking about Christmas time. Kris and I are off to New York for Christmas and I’m excited! If you have any recommendations or wise words to share, please do!
