note to self: go outside

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." —  Henry David Thoreau credit My phone died recently. Not like died because of its charge — permanently died. I'm not the only one whom this has happened to, I'm sure, and this isn't a complaint. Rather, it's an observation on how different the landscape of my life has been without it. I've been reading more, watching more TV, doing less doomscrolling. I found that I've missed my phone a lot less and simultaneously a lot more than I expected. And I've been noticing a difference in my mental state. My mental health is, apparently, linked in part to the device I hold in my hand 99% of the time. Who knew? However, it's still been challenging lately, for more reasons than just my phone, and my sister invited me to go outside with her. Th


I'm sorry. It appears I left my blogger friends in the dust.

This is what has elapsed in the time that I haven't posted. Well, actually this is more recent. As in, the past week. Does that still count?

  1. My laptop was repaired. Happiness.
  2. I have made about 16+ avatars in the past three days upon getting my laptop fixed; thus being reunited with Photoshop once again.
  3. I started biology.
  4. I came up with a novel idea. Literally. 
  5. Life has been interesting.
  6. I got a Photobucket account.
  7. I've been writing. Er, trying to write. But really, I've just been procrastinating.
  8. I split a pack of Owl City t-shirts between me and two other friends.
  9. I bought a Josh Wilson CD, along with a book called Jesus Calling. And a journal. All three of which have been very instrumental in my spiritual walk.
  10. I wore my Converse for the first time since before summer started. ♥
  11. I've learned that it's okay to be imperfect. I'm still learning.
  12. God loves me.
  13. Oh, and I got the new Blogger interface. I like it so far, to be honest.
  14. I realized I still need to do Beautiful People.
  15. Fifteen is a good number to end on, don't you think?

Anyway, how's your life?


  1. Ah, I'd love to see your avatars! It makes me think that I need to get designing again myself...I've got a couple of pictures that would be fun to use.

    A Photobucket account, eh? Is that because of the lame Flickr 200 pictures only policy? (I'm still miffed about that one.) ;)

    Love ya!

  2. GASP! Can I hear your novel idea? Please? Pretty please with macaroons and gummy bears? Please? I'll love you forever. Okay, I already do, but still!!
    Great post :))

  3. I recently just wore my converse for the first time since summer started, too! My feet felt so wonderful and at home. :)
