How did I get here?

March 21, 2011

Some people always have an awesomely-amazing story about their lives and how they got where they are. I can’t even say I have gotten anywhere…actually, I’m certain I haven’t gotten anywhere, and yet I’m here. Where ever this is. In Columbus Ohio. Studying Creative Writing. Almost done with my military contract. With no direction what-so-ever on what I want to do with my life.

There’s another question. How do you know what you want to do for the rest of your life? I can hardly pick out what I want to eat for lunch let alone what I want to do for LIFE. I have changed my major seven times in the last three years. I should almost be graduated, yet I cannot decide on what I want to do for life. I know some people who knew since Junior High School, and here I am 21 years old, still lost.

So I stuck with creative writing.. even though my Father still thinks I’m studying Computer Forensics, “a job where [I] can make decent money.” I just know that I love to write. I love to read. I have never gotten bored with it and I know I never will. Is it so bad to end up actually liking your job when “you grow up?”

On a more awesome note… I am painting my new office purple, and have already found tons of antiques to fill it with! I’ll update with more pictures as I start to fill the room!!

I found something that I really want.
For some reason I feel like it would help me with my writers block, most likely not, but that still doesn’t crush my dreams of being the owner of this baby.

It’s beautiful, and I’ve always wanted a typewriter.  I feel like if I don’t snatch it up now then all of them will be gone forever. I want it, I want it, I want it! I guess I’ll be eating whatever is in the fridge for the next few weeks so I can save up every penny to buy it. My biggest fear is that, when I do get it, I won’t enjoy using it, because I am so use to a computer keyboard.

Either way, it is pretty and would look lovely in my office.

What do you think can help you get rid of your writers block?

Do you use a typewriter?

Distractions

March 15, 2011

It’s been a few months…(six)… since I’ve last blogged and I decided that I indeed needed another distraction in my life, so I decided to take it back up.. in this new place, so lets see how it goes before another distraction engulfs me.

Distraction list as of today:

  1. School
  2. Boyfriend
  3. Work
  4. Army
  5. Hedge Hog
  6. Roommate
  7. The Gym
  8. Cell Phone
  9. Learning how to Cook
  10. Facebook
  11. and now, this blogging thing.

Oh and there is more, but of course I’m happy with stopping at eleven… for all our sakes.
