Poems and Lists

I’ve been doing a lot of non-blog writing. And I’ve been reading a lot. One of my all time favorite blogs is Eggbeater by Shuna Fish Lydon. What do I love about her blog? The honesty. And the poetry. I think I’m going to give it a try. Maybe if I can’t express myself in full sentences and complete thoughts, I can get some of my feelings across via a poem (or more accurately, via phrases or lists).

I also feel like I’ve been ignoring my blog a little bit. Shuna’s most recent post also talks about some of the reasons she’s been ignoring her blog. While her’s is written in a much more eloquent form, here are some of my reasons:

Reading more
Watching TV more
Spending time with friends
Missing mom
Missing dad
Balance—less time in front of my computer
Feeling sad
Feeling lonely
Spending time outside in the sunshine
Spending time on the couch when it’s foggy
Dinner with my friends
Making jam
Emotionally drained
Learning to scoot
Not dating
Getting stood up
Figuring out my finances

I hope things turn around. And I get out of this phase. I do miss writing. And I miss my little blog.
