Day # fuck it, I don't care today

Yes I disappeared for a few days. And not just from you, from just about everything.

I didn't go to work. I didn't text back. I didn't email. Didn't even Facebook. I know, crazy.

So what did I do? Slept. Laid on the couch. Then laid on the love seat. Sometimes even the floor.

Watched movies. Watched TV. Some VOD. And even some youtube videos.

Not sure if I'm sick, getting depressed, or feeling sorry for myself. Maybe a little cocktail of them all.

Trying to work on myself, my career and body all at once can be a bit overwhelming. And when it seems as though everyone is moving forward but you, it can be a little discouraging.

So bear with me, as I continue to try and figure out my life through this blog.

  1. As for the depression...I know the feeling. Just think about New Moon and wine and it will help. (ok, probably not but maybe a little?)

    If you wanna talk I am ALWAYS here.

  2. look on the bright side. You had chips and dip!

  3. Make sure to make this recipe for Christmas! Looks great... stop thinking about all that isn't the way you want it to be and think about all that is the way you want to be!
