Why is change so bloody hard?

You’d like to think that this post is about Change, capital C. Like, changing your career. Or making new friends. Or just finally making the jump from water to carbonated water because you can add those squeeze-flavour thingies to the carbonated water and it almost tastes like pop (that’s soda for my American friends).

Oh, no, no, no, no… nothing like that.

I’m talking about something really big and important.

I’m talking about something that can make or break your day.

Sickness, Writing, and Gratitudes

It’s really, really hard to be productive when you’re sick.

That’s likely a no-brainer of a statement, but I’m saying it anyway. I’ve had a stupid cold for a week, now, and it’s gone from “just a head cold” to “it’s trying to slip down into my chest, fml”.

So, what is this place going to be all about?

Well, I really don’t know. I haven’t had a “public blog” in a long time. Like, years.  I kind of want to have a space to just blog whatever I feel like. I have a lot of interests. I have a lot going on in my life. There’s a lot to write about — everything from mental health to knitting, and from cooking and physical health to the crazy shit my cats do when they think we’re not paying attention (seriously, the girlcat loves to Matrix-bounce off the hallway walls from time to time, for example).
