State of My Year

Write up a mid-year “State of My Year” post.

You see that gargoyle? You see how he looks? That’s how I’m feeling right now. My year is in a state of stagnancy. I feel like it is barely moving and it is so frustrating. I am cutting back on calories to lose weight (don’t worry, nothing extreme; I’m on 1530/day) so I can’t eat for comfort. I try to keep myself busy but with a class only twice a week and no job, it’s frustrating. I have heard about more people dying in the past two days than I can bare. I owe so much money to people and it is causing anxiety. I have to figure out what I am going to do with my horse. I just want to skip town and move to New Orleans already, but that is not wise nor responsible.

I guess on the more positive side, I will be going to school full time in the fall and after next semester I will only be two classes away from my BA.  I’m becoming friends with people at my church, which is great. I will be getting baptized on August 25th and I have a job promised to me at the end of September. I will be receiving enough in my refund to pay off all of my debts. I feel God working in my life and I shouldn’t complain. I’m just down in the dumps. That’s the state of my year so far.


Life After Blogs

Okie dokie, guys. I am gonna start doing a daily prompt from The Daily Post! And then there should be a weekly prompt I’d like to hop into too, but that will start tomorrow.


Your life without a computer:  what does it look like?

It is hard to imagine life without a computer. I have at least had access to one for as long as I can remember. Life without it now, though… It would be a completely different beast. I would probably watch a lot more television. Ya know, to pass the time. I definitely wouldn’t be writing this blog. Facebook would not be a priority for me. I never would have made some pretty great friends. Maybe I would be outside more often…well, at least I’d like to think so. I would talk on the phone more, which would be a good thing if I didn’t loath talking on the phone. My mom and sisters wouldn’t tease me about being on the computer all the time. For school assignments, I would be frustratingly dependent on the library. I probably wouldn’t know half as much as I do and making credit card payments would be a pain. I’d like to think I would cope well without a computer, and maybe if I never had one in the first place I could, because I wouldn’t know any other way… But if one day out of nowhere I just didn’t have a computer anymore, I believe I would not be a very happy human being.

That’s a little sad, isn’t it?
