University has finished and I am on break until February. I’ve decided to complete the 12 week program in The Artists Way. This primarily consists of writing three pages of freeflow thoughts, known as a brain dump, every morning upon waking. It is supposed to open you up creatively and help you move past your inner negative critic by writing out all the negative thoughts.
I’m hoping this will also help me to become a more disciplined blogger. I’ve been writing out a plan of what my ideal life looks like and trying to work out how to get there. I want to use this summer to become more organised and in control of my life, and therefore happier. If I can get on top of my life while I';m on holidays it will be easier to manage once I go back to uni and haveto deal with real life.
More details will come in my next post.
I’m loving this town lately, walking around and seeing flowers creeping up out of the sidewalks. It’s so different here than living in the city when the seasons sort of blurred into cool or warm. Here the seasons are so exaggerated it’s amazing, and the sense of hope and fresh starts that the spring flower gives nearly makes up for the horrible, long, wet and miserable winters.
The purple flowers in the first photo are all over my lawn, I’m dreading the gardener coming to mow them all away.
May aswell just admit I’m shit at this. Deadlines and consistency are not my thing, but man I can drink smoothies in the sun like noone else ;)
I used to be very active in online communities whether it be through blogs, forums or even just msn but since having my son and starting uni I just can’t keep up with anything consistently. I thought about coming on here and just deleting the blog but I’ve decided to keep it to post my random rambling when I feel the need (read: when I have an assignment due and want to procrastinate by doing something else). It’s better than doing 30 posts a day on facebook and annoying all my real life friends.
Right now I have 3 essays to finish by the end of the week, my mum is going into hospital on Thursday and it is my nieces birthday on Saturday, so really I have 3 to finish by tomorrow night and instead I am playing on facebook, overeating, doing laundry, typing on here, anything I can that doesn’t involve writing my essay. Why do I do this, actually writing it won’t be very hard it’s just getting the enthusiasm to start typing. I have these mental blocks where I decide something is to hard or ‘I JUST DON’T WANNA’ and I avoid it for as long as possible then when I finally do it I’m shocked by how easy it is.
So enough procrastinating, it is not 11.20am and I am picking Flynn up at 3, I will have atleast one essay finished by then!
