Watching

Nada. I have all the time in the world now that I’ve quit my job, but I don’t feel like watching anything. It’s a tragedy because there’s so many shows I wanted to watch when I had the time. Curse you, irony! 🤦🏼‍♀️

Reading

I’ve been in a reading slump of epic proportions, but I do still want to read a little bit, which is good. My reads just have to be light and fluffy or an old favorite. Right now I’m reading By Your Side by Kasie West. So far, I like it.

Listening

I’ve been listening to some oldies. It’s so weird to call this an oldie, lol, but it’s one of my favorites.

Blogging

I’m blogging again after a month hiatus. Depression is so hard to deal with sometimes. You never know how long it’s going to last. I’m doing a lot better than I was a month ago. Even though the depression isn’t gone by any means, it’s much better than it was. I think quitting my job, some medication changes, and some other personal experiences in the last month have helped get me back into a good place.

Feeling

As long as I’m doing something, I’m okay. Otherwise, I’m bored. You’re probably like, duuuuh. But, it’s so much easier said than done. I’m running out of things to do or at least things I want to do.

Loving

I’m loving sleeping in every day, though I’m trying not to overdo it.

Wanting

I want to take a photography class.

Needing

I need to finish figuring out my schedule for fall. I think I have it planned out for the most part, but I’m trying to decide how many credits I want to take. Do I want to stick to 11 credits or take an easy A class and do 15 credits? The easy A class would just be for funsies, but it would still have homework and tests so it’s still something to think about.

    Welcome back! I bookmarked your “I’m blogging again but maybe just not about books ” comeback post for a future comment, but I see you’ve replaced it with this one. Anyway – I’m sure you only need to do things at your own pace, when you feel like doing them. Maybe you’ll wake up one day and you’ll feel the pull towards watching 10 TV series or reading a hundred books all together (LOL, not literally of course). Nothing wrong with that. Nothing wrong with sleeping in either (ah, if sleeping in were a sport, I’d be the champion 😂). You deserve it, after (I presume) years of work. BTW, I love Toto! I don’t remember what you said you would study next fall? Anyway, good luck with it!

      Yeah, I decided to roll my blog back to my previous posts and it wiped out that post in the process. I’m trying to decide what I want to study. I’ve narrowed it down to two areas–Mathematics and Linguistics. I’m going to take classes in both and decide which one I want to do more. Maybe both. 😀

        Ha! I came looking to comment on the same thing! I think it’s great that you’re taking the leap and doing something you want to do. I quit my job a couple of years ago and it’s been one of the best things that could have happened to me. Prior to that, I also went back to school. I’m not doing it now (life changes), but it was what I needed at the time. I was originally working on an English degree (something I still might go back to in the future) and an Accounting degree (which I will not). I fell in love with Linguistics along the way, so I totally understand that draw. I’m really looking forward to seeing how this goes for you. I love going along for the ride! Congratulations on this adventure!!

    When I first quit my job I felt the same way. Turns out I was feeling that all encompassing guilt that’s been drummed into me since I was a kid. I wouldn’t watch tv or read because “how dare I quit my job!” I felt like someone was sitting on my shoulder calling me lazy, unproductive and a big fat ingrate. It made me angry and grouchy and I was constantly snapping at my husband who was pissed that I’d finally got to quit my crap job and was supposed to be happy but, instead, was lying around doing nothing, feeling guilty, and snapping at everyone. Sigh! I finally kicked that guilt to the curb. My husband was not, as I imagined, judging me and could care less if he came home from work to find me napping or still in my PJs watching TV as long as I was happy. Once again I was my own worst enemy. Took me over a freaking year to figure out it was guilt that was keeping me from being happy. Now I try to do what makes me happy. If sitting on my butt all day watching Netflix is what I need that day, I do it.
    Anywho, I just thought I’d share in case you found that that might be what’s bugging you and making you so restless.
