Mid-Day Musings

It is a peaceful Sunday in the Caribbean. The sun is out, the temperature at 82 degrees F. The birds are chirping and I’m sure somewhere there’s a baby laughing. Right now. Inside  my head isn’t calm. My face probably looks like I’ve been meditating all day, the picture perfect example of calm serenity.

I have so much on my mind. I have to read 5 chapters in Things Fall Apart by tomorrow and fill out a worksheet. Figure out where I’m going to get the materials for the speaker I’m making before IT class tomorrow. I’ve got food on the brain and am trying not to binge eat. I need to figure out how to get more votes on http://www.exploremodeling.com/Casting/elfCosmetics2013/78881/Samora_L.aspx

With so much else on my mind that I can’t put them all  into complete sentences. I feel as if everything in my mind has blown out of the neat filing cabinets they should be in. Sometimes I think I might have something a littler milder than ADHD. I procrastinate but not on purpose. There are times my mom will take away my facebook so I can go to sleep earlier because she thinks that’s what’s keeping me from doing my homework earlier.

Guess what?

It’s not. I’m lucky if I get to bed before 10PM. I find things to do instead of working because I just can’t help myself. Since I can’t seem to stick to my school work and finish it all at once, I have a Tumblr, Twitter, Pintrest and other miscellaneous things I can’t remember the names of.

I’m going to stop typing because this post isn’t going anywhere. If I continued to write, you would continue to read more about my procrastinating adventures.

New Year Resolutions

It’s finally 2013! I just want to take a moment to be grateful that I have seen another year. A New Year means a New Better me. I’ve come up with 10 Resolutions for the year that I think will allow me to be a better person.

1. Get honor roll with distinction every term.

2. Not give my mom so much attitude. As a teenager I really do struggle with this one, but my back talk isn’t getting me anywhere good.

3. Read 100 books. In 2011 I read about 60 books and last year, 2012, I read 88.

4. Be completely honest. I was always honest last year but sometimes I left things out so I wouldn’t get in trouble, this year will be different.

5. Write in my diary at least once a week to reflect and on my blog.

6. Say no more often. I think a lot of people have trouble with this one. I tend to say sure when I’d really prefer to just say no. It’s simple things like saying I don’t want to hang out this weekend. It’s necessary and it makes me feel better, more in control I guess.

7. Eat healthier. This one is difficult because I’m not someone who drinks a lot of soda, or eats a whole bag of chips. I rarely have soda and I hate chips. I think eating healthier is less about cutting out foods and more about adding in new, healthier choices.

8. Set monthly goals. Goals are the best way to move forward. A tick mark gives off a satisfying and motivating feeling.

9. Get to and stay at 125 lbs.

10. Be Happy.

I’m very happy that I got to share my 10 goals with you guys. Feel free to share yours with me via a comment.
