I Don’t Wanna Grow Up

I doubt anyone noticed, but I promised to “do my damnedest” to post everyday … yet I failed to post anything over the weekend. Eh, I don’t feel as bad about it as I thought I would. I had a much better time chillaxing with my ladyfriend.

My problems with discipline continue. Alas. Rome wasn’t built in day.

Speaking of the ladyfriend, we went to see Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater at City Center over the weekend. We also played Guitar Hero 3 and watched several episodes of Twin Peaks on DVD. I also fit in a brunch on Saturday in the Slope, did some minor grocery shopping and did some laundry (myself, I didn’t even drop it off!).

And this morning, I requested a slew of days off this month, and got it.

So I’m in a good mood right now. Slightly surprising as it was nearly impossible for me to get out of bed this morning. Again.

Which reminds me, I did some cursory research on the whole meditation thing. I’m so damn cynical. I will need to trust my source (any hint of cheesiness or empty “promises” and I turn ugly). Particularly ironic, considering part of the idea would be letting go of judgment. And most sources for information on meditation make me giggle. Others tend to creep me out, as they can get quite authoritarian. Also ironic, if you ask me.I found a simple technique that reminds me of some exercises I did in school that I found helpful. I plan on giving it a whirl tomorrow morning, pre-coffee. Hopefully, this will help keep my waking mind at bay rather than prevent me from doing it at all.

I also wrote the first draft of an email to a minister today. More on that later, but I’m excited about this email.

In the meantime, here’s this:
