My ultimate wish in life is to be a writer, staying at home with my kids and dogs, you know, kind of like a working mom. I do like binders. ...
What other people find fun: going out (what does that even mean, anymore?), trying new restaurants (being "foodies"), drinking, staying out late, etc., I find slightly tedious. All that effort! Picking an outfit, getting cleaned up, making arrangements for my big puppy, driving, standing around, making small talk, ugghhhh just thinking about it is making me stressed out and tired. I just can't do it.
A fun time for me includes: eating junk food or breakfast food, reading a book, taking an afternoon nap, going to a museum alone, watching a movie I actually wanted to see (either alone or with people), doing crafts, going shopping with my mom, talking with my dad about our dogs, talking with my boyfriend all the way in Afghanistan. FUN! To me, those are exciting and entertaining things to do. And if people want me to call me boring or lame, I'm okay with that.
Man, I'm really out of practice with this whole blogging and writing thing, huh? Baby steps. There's that quote that gets tossed around on Pinterest and Reddit all the time by Ira Glass from This American Life, "...something something something, keep writing."Clearly, I need to take the man's advice to heart.
