♥ with the Pocket feature. It's an easy way to bookmark/save things that interest you and it recommends other items for you based on your activity which I know creeps some people out but I kinda like. Plus I have the Pocket app on my phone so I can easily save things for my blog when I am out and about. :)
♥ this article on journalling...which I was totally going to do more of this year. And started off strong! But have faltered a little. I blame winter. And dark mornings. And cold that sucks the ever loving energy out of me. (Please see this same reason in relation to why I have not been going to the gym).
♥ i have been rewatching friends from the beginning. And I have been loving it. I will never get tired of that show. And it was exciting to realize that I might have been watching an episode that I HAD NEVER SEEN BEFORE.
♥ and speaking of high quality tv shows...have you seen this??? oh my little 80's heart.
♥ did you ever read an article and wonder how the author wrote about your life...the title alone says it all in this case... A Case for Trying (Really) Hard to Make Friends as an Adult ...
♥ life goals...what i want to be when i grow up
♥ oh my heart. Can i grow this in my backyard this year? I did manage to make sunflowers last year.
♥ and since i am gushing about beautiful things that i wish that i had created....
and not really part of friday i'm in love
but i did something today that i was
pretty proud of
and in all honesty
terrified the everloving hell out of me
they give you 3 prompts and an allowance
of 2500 words or less
and a week to write a short story and submit
for once in my life
i said i was going to do something
AND I DID IT.
i submitted the story tonight
and promptly felt like vomiting as soon as i hit
but i did it. no matter what happens, i followed through
and finished something for once
when it comes to writing...
i sent it to a friend whose opinion i take very seriously.
we tend to like the same writers and although she is my best friend
she is also brutally honest....
she sent me a message the next morning that said
"this is fucking dynamite. submit it."
:) :) :) :) :)
i literally wanted to print that out & wear it on a tshirt, it made me so happy.
so...keep your fingers crossed for me...
but no matter what happens, i'm happy that i made it
as far as the submit button...
it's good to put yourself out there sometimes
and see what happens,
even if it does make you feel like vomiting momentarily.
(that actually might be a sign that you are
moving in the right direction).
