It’s almost two in the morning, and I really should be in bed. Instead, I’m sitting in front of my desk1 trying to draft this, the hopefully first post of 2022. I spent the past two or three days browsing various websites that offer free stock photos as I couldn’t decide if I wanted to rush a post about my goals and hopes for this year, or if I wanted to go back into this whole blogging thing at a slower pace…though since I’ve not posted since the 18th of October 2021, you could say that I’m moving at the speed of a three-toed sloth 2. However, if you consider the fact that a three-toed sloth probably has a destination, then I’m definitely slower. I have been so unconcerned about making sure that this site had any updates…or any of my various projects. All I have been doing since my Mom’s death in the Summer of 2018 is renewing my domains or moving a gifted one to a cheaper extension. My eventual plan is to do book reviews and other such bookish things on that site. Right now? It only has a somewhat lackluster introductory post, and I’m drafting “The European Traveller Book Tag.” I also have a list of about 30 or so ideas for future posts – I might have just as many, or more, for this site if I would gather them all in a single document.3
If you read the last footnote, you’re probably thinking that my apartment is like one you’d see on that TV show, Hoarders. I assure you that it’s in no way close to being similar to the homes shown on there. I will admit, however, that before I move4 I really need to do another purge. It doesn’t help matters when I currently have 132 MB of storage space left on my HP Stream, which still needs a name. So uninstalling both The Sims 4 and Origin has left me with almost 24GB of free space, which will only increase as I get the assortment of blog posts and pages edited, then published. I am beginning to think that my biggest obstacle to having a successful website is either the fact that I procrastinate too often or I’m an extremely boring person.5 The fact that I am currently at the mercy of my cell phone and God doesn’t help matters any.
Moving on to something a bit brighter, I still need to write a post telling y’all about my new puppy, Kiki. It’ll be drafted after I publish my post about my hopes, wishes, and dreams for 2022 – it will hopefully be published around her birthday, 25th of January. In other somewhat good news, I’m now getting monthly allergy shots instead of weekly – those of you who follow me on Twitter will already know a bit about my two weekly shots. For the non-followers of my Twitter, I am allergic to most grasses and trees where I live, mold, and dust mites.6.
In the past two months, I have managed to make both Chicken & Dumplings with homemade dumplings and Ham & Beans. I don’t care to make such dishes as I usually end up with quite a bit of leftovers -one’s an old family tradition that I’ve not been following since my Mom’s death, mainly because I don’t care for the dish. The other’s only made when I go to the pantry and get a whole chicken, or when someone gives me one. Prior to my neighbor’s death, the one who used to live across the sidewalk, I was more interested in making Chicken & Dumplings as I knew I could give her a large bowl whenever I made some. The only other thing I’ve been doing since I last posted was watching a few TV shows like Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The only relatively new thing I’ve watched is Black Widow, which I absolutely loved…but I’m more a fan of Marvel than of DC Comics. I will admit that I’ve enjoyed both Wonder Woman movies – Gal Gadot is amazing, and Aquaman but have you seen Jason Momoa?
This year, I’m hoping to read a total of 100 Books this year; watch both the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Pretty Little Liars…and I’m taking content away from my next post. So I’m going to end this one here and get to drafting the next one.
- Actually, it’s a drafting table if you want to be nitpicky. ↩
- 2.4 meters per minute on the ground ↩
- They’re currently on various pieces of paper all around my apartment. ↩
- Hopefully, in the next 6 months or so. *fingers crossed* ↩
- Honestly? It’s probably a combination of both. *shrugs* ↩
- Please note that I didn’t say dust – my allergist gets very angry if I say I’m allergic to dust AKA dead parts of people. ↩
