1. Do you like the song “Extraordinary Machine?”
Fiona Apple said that she wrote it as a pep talk to herself. Every couple of years, I find myself in that place where I get nestled into my comfort zone and am loathe to venture out of it. My best experiences, though, have come from swallowing my fears and going outside my comfort zone. I realized that I have lost my sense of adventure. I haven’t had a decent “outside the comfort zone” trip since Philly and my marathon.
This is not to say that I have any exciting trips planned (I wish). I just want to embrace new challenges with acceptance.
2. Speaking of Fiona Apple – WHEN IS HER ALBUM COMING OUT? BECAUSE I NEED IT IN MY LIFE. Apparently she released a single and I am just finding out about it now. WHAT.
3. I painted my fingernails sky blue and my toe nails forest green. Because I can.
4. I am breaking out on my chin and it is so unattractive. Not just one blemish, either. It’s this gross pizza chin and WHY, GODS OF CLEAR SKIN, WHY?!
5. I really, really want this hair.
Except that summer is approaching in Texas, meaning I will be miserable with heavy bangs coating my face.
6. Speaking of summer coming in Texas, I have been running again but I am not in the condition I was six months ago, i.e. I am horribly out of shape and a once easy 4.5 mile run has been reduced to agony. I went running the other day and it felt SO HOT and I was saddened to realize that it was only 85 degrees. I say “only” because the temperature will jump at least 20 degrees within the next two months.
7. I have to work this weekend, which really, really sucks. I am not sure if I can see the Avengers but I want to, but mainly because of this man:
8. I have the show Charmed on mute in the background, and I am instantly being reminded of fashion from 2001. Super frilly, pink Britney Spears-type sweaters, cheeky hats, bold lipstick.
God, I feel like this show has been on for the past two hours, WHEN IS IT GOING TO END?
9. My shoulder still vaguely hurts at night and it’s still a little stiff, even over two months after hurting it. The doctor confirmed last month that it is healing nicely and that the most I could do with it is physical therapy, if I wanted to. He didn’t sound concerned with it and is unsure if I even dislocated it; he said he has no way of confirming it since he didn’t see me after my injury (all I’m saying is I FELT IT POP BACK IN.)
I guess my dad is right; it will never be 100% normal again, or maybe it will after a long, long time. That’s okay.
10. Goals for this month – actually learn a song on my guitar, actually learn a couple of songs on drums, actually finish a book.
