2014 – A Year Dedicated To ME

I haven’t been doing much lately, but what else is new? All that’s every on my agenda is family and work. This new year has brought forth many new and exciting goals, one of which is to find the time to completely furnish and decorate my home to my liking. As you know, I moved here in July of last year but I didn’t really have the motivation to even finish unpacking everything in the boxes in my office. I have a home office, now and it allows me the time to think, write and do whatever my heart desires. It’s still filled with moving boxes full of miscellaneous items that I plan on going through in due time. The issue is that admittedly, I’m a hoarder of sorts. It’s not bad like you would see in that shit hoarders, but some of this shit definitely could be thrown out. The problem with that is, I work too hard to buy some of these things and I hate being wasteful, so the items that I’m not going to be keeping are going to be donated to people who could possibly use them and wouldn’t pack them away as I’ve done. I thought about selling them but I just can’t do that knowing that people have a hard enough time financially.

Most of what I have planned revolves around turning my house into a home. Reading Carla’s has inspired me to really express my creativity with this project. I’ve put it off for too long. Up until last year, I’d never been able to do that because I’d always lived with my younger siblings who weren’t particular keen on keeping the house up to par or not breaking my shit. I’d come home to a messy house or broken items that no one would be able to replace, of course. That’s the price you pay when you have people staying with you.

My home is my comfort zone. I’m not an outdoorsy person, like, at all. I do enjoy going out every now and again but it’s not a necessity. I’m perfectly fine with staying in, fucking around on the internet, playing video games, watching movies/TV shows or curling up with a good book. I yearn for some peace and quiet after a long and hectic day. I don’t think I need much else, honestly.

Home Office

My office is quote cozy. It’s not much right now, but when I do get everything situated, I definitely will be posting updated pictures. I’m pretty excited! To be honest, I don’t even really do much when I’m in there. It’s sort of my very own sanctuary. I have made an attempt at writing a book but there are constant distractions at the moment. I mostly browse the net on my laptop, while watching movies on my desktop. The little things make me happy.

I think I’m going to start incorporating photos into my posts.

Never Enough Time

Sometimes I feel like there’s never enough time in a day for anything. My routine is the same everyday and yet, I still can’t find the time to do almost everything I need and want to do. I work and take care of my family. Then there are times in between for doctors and dentists appointments, times when the kids and I get sick, etc. What’s more is, sometimes, I get the feeling that life is just flying by, without the time to really enjoy it. I find peace sometimes in reading, listening to music and watching my TV shows in between the craziness. But I’m not really enjoying much of anything else. The crazy thing is, I don’t even know what else I’d particularly enjoy doing.

I don’t even blog like I want to. I always have so many thoughts, with little to no motivation in sharing them most of the time. I started keeping a record of the thoughts I have during the day and storing them on my google drive so I can take and add to them everywhere I go but it’s something I never go forth with so my notes are just sitting on that drive, collecting e-dust. Even now, I’m rambling on about a bunch of nothing with no direction.

On a different note, I knew that 2013 was going to be a different year for me. I ended up moving and getting settled into the new home, which was something I’d wanted to do for some time. In 2014, I plan on being more active. That is, going out to enjoy myself more and getting back into doing the things I enjoyed doing the most. It won’t be very easy but I intend on changing that aspect of it. As of 2007, I’ve never officially taken a vacation. I use all of those extra days for doctors appointments and when the kids are sick. Although it pans out, I could really use a vacation. That’s also one of the things I plan on doing in 2014. A person can go crazy without one. I know that’s what’s happening to me right now. I’m becoming more irritable at work and it seems some of my coworkers annoy the hell out of me. They’re not even doing anything in particular but sometimes I feel like they’re all morons. When I’m working, I hate being disturbed. I’m a very moody person so when people come to talk to me, even briefly, about shit that’s non work related, I’m annoyed and uninterested. There are those I can absolutely tolerate because they often understand my moodiness.

Maybe the next time that I blog, I will be updating with photos. It might just be a bit therapeutic.
