My year-long daily blogging project is winding down – I started January 7, so there’s about a week and a half left – and I’m ready for a break! It’s like senioritis but for blogging. I can see the finish line! Just gotta push through for a little while longer to get there.
I am planning to keep blogging after the year is up, but not every day anymore. I haven’t decided on any particular schedule yet, but I know I want to continue.
Today was nice – I got to hang out with friends including one whom I don’t get to see much since she lives out of state. I really enjoyed playing games and being around my people tonight. I am tired, though.
I am really heartbroken about Carrie Fisher’s passing, and her mother Debbie Reynolds’ quickly following. Star Wars and Singing in the Rain were two of my favorite movies as a kid. I’m not sure why some celebrity deaths hit us more than others, but this one was rough for me. I’ve cried a few times about it and I don’t really know where to channel that sadness. I feel weird talking about it like I’m trying to make it about me. I don’t mean to. But I’m really sad.
I’ll tell you what, it makes me miss my mom and dad. They were out of town for Christmas and I’m ready to go spend some time hanging out with them. That reminds me – my dad called me today while I was in the shower and I completely forgot to call him back! Ugh, hate it when I do that. Writing myself a note to call him in the morning. (Dad, if you’re reading this and I haven’t called you yet – try again!)
Okay well I have reached the point that I’m kinda just sharing my stream of consciousness so I think it’s way past time for me to go to bed. I’ve been having trouble sleeping lately (pretty sure it’s a combination of coming off of pain pills after a week and my dog’s snoring) but hopefully tonight I’ll have better luck.
See y’all tomorrow.
