But here is a double whammy!!!!!!! wooo
for day 8 I was supposed to talk about 3 bad habits I have and 3 good habits I’d like to have, and day 9 is the day to talk about someone that I’m interested in/find fascinating.
3 bad habits that are part of the reason that this post is late:
The first and probably the one with the most far-reaching consequences is that I go to bed too late.I always tell myself I’ll get to bed by 10:30 or 11pm… but here I am right now at ten minutes to 11 and I’m not even half way through this. Then I will get distracted by something on tv/youtube/facebook/reddit/tumblr and end up getting lost and finally realizing what time it is at half past midnight. Last night, for example, I was playing Child of Light (best game!!!) until 1am. And because my hubby hasn’t been sleeping well, I had to play with the cat for a while before feeling not guilty about going to bed and closing the door to leave her out.
And of course when you go to sleep late, you get up late. I’m definitely one of the people who need to be up early to get things done and feel good about my day, but I am in love with sleeping… I usually feel the most rested after about 9 hours. The best solution would be to tap into my inner granny and get the sleep I need while also being able to enjoy mornings.
The second is more of a mix of habit and health. I let myself think horrible things about myself, and I know it’s partly because of my current mental health, but I really want to be able to stop when I realize what I’m doing and even though it’s hard I want to tell myself that I am not worthless or a bad person. It doesn’t make sense to think those things, because I have so many amazing people in my life who wouldn’t want to be around me if it were true. I need to let myself trust them and change the way I think. It’s definitely going to be a long process.
Thirdly, the internet – and frankly computers – kill all of my productivity. Ever since my family got our first computer with an internet connection I was glued to it. It was even in my sister’s room, but there I was 80% of my free time. I feel kind of bad because she was probably completely sick of me, but it’s just one in the long line of my infatuation with screens and computers. The only time I ever get anything substantial done is when I purposely remove myself from technology, so I think I have to give myself a curfew.
One thing I’d like to incorporate into my routine would be drinking more water!! I’m constantly dehydrated, it’s so ridiculous. It should be common sense, but I just don’t keep water around me, and usually if I do, Will drinks it 😛
As for the day 9 section: discuss someone who fascinates me and why……
This is actually a lot harder to talk about.. I usually get super excited about series on tv or in books.. and actors or authors involved in those things. But I don’t really find myself fixating on specific people.. even in my daily life.
In terms of people I admire.. I could list a few like Lucy Lawless, Katana Fatale, Ulorin Vex, my dad, Diamond Dallas Page, Felicia Day, Wil Wheaton, and my husband of course (why else would I marry him?)…. oh and Sips!
That’s a long list… usually I find people admirable or fascinating because of the activities and causes they invest themselves in and how *them* they are. I love that they are unapologetic and willing to help make other people’s lives better in some way.
so here again.. it’s super late. I am so sorry. I will endeavor to not let this happen again.
