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 2

Ok so I just finished my Daily Prompt. Today the word to work with was “giggle”. You can check out my response here to see what I managed to piece together for today’s Daily Prompt. Also,  if you didn’t catch Monday’s response to “newspaper”, you can check out that response here. Feel free to browse around the rest of my blog.  Follow me if you like what you read. Comments are always welcome.

Now to empty my thoughts. To begin, I have been having a minor migraine for a few hours now. Nothing has helped it,  but I know it could be worse, so I won’t complain. I have lots of work to do at work tomorrow, and I want to get an early start (yall pray for me…I hate waking up early).

I have a work function coming up next week and I am nervous about going already! I work with these people Monday through Friday and I am anxious about a get together at my supervisor’s house. I hate social gatherings! No matter how comfortable I might be with some people, I still get nervous when they are a part  of a social situation. What’s a girl to do? 

I guess that’s all for tonight. This headache is not getting any better. I guess it’s round 2 of migraine meds.

Goodnight everyone!

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!

In Your Dreams

There is something so amazing about dreams. Some people can recall every detail of a dream. While others, like myself, only remember bits and pieces. These bits and pieces usually end up fading away the further away from the dream I get.

I particularly like dreams because they don’t actually exist. Well at least mine don’t. I am sure there is at least one person who will tell me otherwise, and I don’t disagree. I am just speaking from my own personal accounts.  My dreams take place during sleep, and that world no longer exists when I am awaken. Usually, I don’t see myself in dreams. I tend to see through my eyes, as I do outside of a dream. I don’t recognize the people or the places. My dreams tend to blend themselves together somehow. For example, I could be in a subway, and then I take a couple of steps and I am in a diner!  It’s like I walked through a wall, but I didn’t.

I really enjoy dreams because they exist and then it’s as if they never happened. My dreams rarely repeat, and 95%  of them don’t make it past one minute of me being awake. I don’t mind it. It just makes dreams more magical and mysterious. I think I will actually try to document as much of my dreams from now on. They just might make for some good blogging!

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.
