(Don’t) Hurry Up, Slowpoke

in spite of the app project - or maybe because of it - we decided to take off from work a whole hour early and go to the movies. That meant preparing for time off, but instead of rushing, I did the opposite - and went very slowly.

A Clean(ish) Slate

I may be a collector but I'm not a hoarder and even I know when a shelf is too full. That means it's time to get rid of excess, and free myself from the burden of stuff.

Pop To It

A word popped so distinctly, if arbitrarily, into my head today that I decided I had to use it. It might be a little corny, but I figured I could come up with a thing or two to say about it.

There Is No Try

Sometimes you just have to do a thing, even if the universe throws all the obstacles in your way and dares you to defy it. Today was about getting it done.

Empty Set

You know how you hit a threshold of not caring because you can't possibly think about or process another thing? That's what happened today. My brain just drained out like a cracked egg, emptied of flotsam and jetsam, and left a little quiet in its place.

A Human Doing

When I was a summer camp counselor, I learned about the Summer Camp Rule. It says that the last thing that happens is the thing you'll remember. Today was a good day... until its messy conclusion. So today's word may not have fared too well.

Musings On Musing

Today's word comes courtesy of a friend who opened a dictionary to a random page, closed her eyes and put her finger down on a word. This is the word she chose. I mean, what are the odds?

I’m Positive

I woke up REALLY cranky today. And sometimes the best way to combat a thing is with its exact opposite. So today I decided to change the narrative focus my attention on the positive.

A Preponderance Of Words

This morning, being like every other morning, was madness and mayhem. But it was a special madness and mayhem that resulted in me not doing ANYTHING, except jumping into work. So in the interest of expedience, I asked my brother to give me a word. This is what he said... and how it manifested in my day.

Tuesday Bluesday

I decided to think about the first random word that popped into my head today. As I was looking out the window the window, the word that popped into my head was blue. So I decided that today I would notice everything blue around me.
