I realized today that I spend a lot of time alone. Like. A lot.
Normally that doesn't bother me. Favorite and I work opposite shifts, and I really miss him throughout the week, but I've learned that I can use that time to decompress, grade and keep the house tidy. I also don't have an endless supply of friends. And honestly? That doesn't bother me either. I have pruned some things out of my life because I was unwilling to deal with the circumstances. The friends I have left are true to color (if you know what I mean), and I have a few budding friendships that seem really promising on that front.
But today I think it would be nice to just sit on my porch and discuss ways to harvest the wheat that is my front yard with a good friend.
Kidding. Slightly. There is wheat in my front yard. But that post for a different day.
I think sometimes it would just be nice to be able to unload my mind and receive immediate feedback. You know?
Like grad school. I started looking at the grad school application process today. Good. Gracious. And some of the requirements make me just a little sick to my stomach. I don't know that I even remember how to be a student anymore, but I think it's good practice to keep myself mindful of my own students' situations.
Or the SBD (South Beach Diet). How it's ok on some days. And how I allow myself a cheat a couple of days a week as long as it's not huge. How my weight loss has stayed in the 9-10 lb range.
I'd talk about trusting God and being scared. I'd talk about prayer concerns for others. We'd laugh over something stupid one of us said.
It probably wouldn't be significant.
I take that back. It would be significant to me.
This post has no purpose whatsoever; sometimes I just need to talk.
