Emptying My Thoughts: Night Five

Hallucinations by dvsn softly playing

Today is Administrative Professionals Day, and the owners and management went all out for us!  The meeting room was decorated, food was made for us by one of the owners,  we received gifts,  we had an extended (uninterrupted) lunch, and one of the managers in the office even sang for us!  It was a good day at the office today.

I still have finishing my bachelor’s degree on my mind and becoming more accomplished. I also need to learn how to skate before June!  I guess some goals are easier than others.

Well that’s all for tonight. I don’t have that much bogging down my mind tonight. I’m headed to Slumberland. Check out some of my latest posts if you find yourself up for a little while longer.  ☺

Emptying My Thoughts: Night Four

Today was a pretty productive day at work. I still have tons of things to do,  but it is slowly but surely all coming together.

Nothing major really happened today. I have been thinking about ways to get out of this work function on Thursday, but I haven’t been able to come up with something good and convincing enough. I swear I hate having social anxiety! Why does it have to be so difficult to socialize with people away from work who I interact with on a daily basis? I guess I will keep thinking of something.

I have been listening to some great music lately thanks to Google Music! I have been listening to new music from some of my favorite artists, and discovering new artists along the way.  A few of my favorites are Nao, Lion Babe, MAAD*MOISELLE, Kiiara, Jamie Woon, Eryn Allen Kane, Lostboycrow, Kelela, Johnny Rain, and Dvsn. I also checked out Tamia’s latest album titled Love Life on Spotify. I really enjoyed it.  Tamia is one of my favorite artists of all time. She remains true to her sound,  and that is what makes me enjoy her music.

Well, that’s all for tonight. I’m headed to Slumberland. Good night ☺

Emptying My Thoughts: Night Three

The life of a mom is truly an interesting one. One kid was throwing up this morning. The other is in the nurse’s office at school because of a really bad headache. I am the mom who worries when her kids are anything other than themselves. They both ended up feeling better, and that’s great, but I still worry. 

I also had to stay home from work today to sit with the little one. I thought it would be a peaceful day as my son rested.  That didn’t happen at all.  He wanted to play and watch every movie he owns. Pretty much everything but rest.  By the way he’s four, and has the energy of four people. Long story short, I did not have a peaceful day.

Now I have to return to work and play catch up on my catch up work.  I am going to go to sleep with nothing but positive thoughts about tomorrow. Tomorrow will be a good day!

I gave today’s Daily Prompt plenty of thought and really couldn’t come up with anything. My mind is so filled with worry and “what ifs” I can’t seem to get my creative juices flowing.

I love writing, but just like everything else, I  begin comparing myself with others. I feel like my writing is not good enough because it doesn’t sound or flow like the next blogger’s work.  I know it’s something I need to get over, and I’m trying.

That’s about all that’s flooding my mind.  Hopefully it’s left here and doesn’t follow me to Slumberland! Good night ☺

Emptying My Thoughts- Night 1

Going to sleep is never as easy as it sounds. I am always thinking and making mental notes. The thoughts in my mind race many miles per minute, and I somehow find it difficult to peacefully fall asleep.

That is why I am allowing my thoughts to be left here for everyone else to sift and sort through. If you find something interesting…great!  If not, maybe tomorrow night you will. Well,  here goes nothing!

So,  I just applied to go to school online. I am nervous about getting all of my transcripts (yes, I’ve made numerous attempts at getting my bachelor’s degree), applying for financial aid, and actually beginning this program.

I have a million things to do at work tomorrow. I need to wake up early so I can get a head start at knocking some of my work out. 

I really need to workout tomorrow. I am so tired of having extra weight on me.

I really want to move into a house. I need to become more disciplined with finances. 
PB&J for the next few weeks for lunch! Maybe I’ll lose some weight and get more work done with this tweak to my lunch break.

Does medicine for anxiety really work?  Maybe I should give this dose change more time. I don’t know.

Well, that is all I had to empty for the night. It is time for me to head over to Slumberland. Good night everyone!

Oh How Random

As I lay here coughing uncontrollably every few minutes or so. I stare at the ceiling. I watch the ceiling fan go around and around. The wind beating against the house…now…not now…now again. I know there are thunderstorms near, but yet they are still far away. It is 12:45 AM CDT. Cough cough…cough cough. I should really go to the doctor in the morning. Why on Earth can’t I go back to sleep. Is it the coughing?  Is it my anticipation of the nearby thunderstorm?  Or maybe it’s the million and ten thoughts zipping around my head. I swear there is a thunderstorm going on in there at times.

12:51 AM CDT…Monday, April 7th, 2014. The coughing has managed to calm down enough so I can breathe. I am no longer looking at the ceiling fan go round as the dust seemed to be causing my cough to worsen. Hiding from dust, out of all things, under the cover. I literally see my thoughts leave my mind, and join the slightly dimmed screen of my phone. It’s kinda cool when you think about it.

12:56 AM CDT…Monday, April 7th, 2014.
I guess I will try this sleep thing again.
