not amused

I'm irritated by fake @replies I get on twitter and not getting my coffee at all today. My dad is doing an awesome Flat Stanley trip for a friend, but I don't want to get flamed for his commentary so I'm not posting it. A student told me he was too busy to go to a time management seminar even though his study hall was cancelled and to top it all off there was no parking outside my apartment so I had to park on campus and walk home.

I am not amused.

However, I am tired, so I'm going to bed. Tomorrow I hope to be in a better mood.

Blogger's Block

I've been having a hard time blogging because I don't know what direction I want to go in or what I want to focus on. It's been a lot easier to just let time go by. The crazy thing is that when I start writing again (like I am for #NaBloPoMo) I remember how much I enjoy it. It's a kind of active meditation for me. The act of writing helps me calm the monkey mind that creeps in, set priorities, and in some cases vent my frustrations. 

So I'm back, at least for this month. Thanks for stopping by and saying hi :)

Batting Practice

Life throws curveballs. The thing is, they look just like fastballs until they curve right towards you at the last minute. What's worse? Swinging and missing? Flinching because it looks like the ball is going to hit you? Or just watching the ball go by? 

Lately I've been swinging and missing.  I've flinched at a couple of life's recent curveballs.  And somehow or another I've been letting a couple of pitches just whomp right into the catcher's mitt.  I'm going to try and get a couple of solid hits in this batting practice we call life.  Today I'm just going to round the bases after practice and call this a #NaBloPoMo start.
