[If you’re a Yankees fan and know uniform numbers, you’ll understand the title of this post] If you’ve read my blog in the past, you know the drill with this post. I’m just writing with no clear theme or direction. Basically a stream of consciousness. Fun!]
Happy Sunday, everyone. Long time, no write. At least on this blog. I have written things at other places. Like on ESPN the other day! I know, can you believe it? Wait, it’s not hard to believe because I wrote four pieces for them in 2014. What is hard to believe is that the last time I wrote for ESPN was in July 2014 which means the last time I wrote for them, my dad was still alive. Crazy, right?
Anyway, I wrote about Michael Pineda and no one told me that I was an idiot in the comments so yay!
Isn’t it amazing? I am still so fearful that people are just going to skewer me after everything I write. When does that feeling go away? Does it ever go away?
Since the last time I wrote on this blog, I have joined Beyond the Box Score at SB Nation. Yes, I’m writing for an SB blog. It was one of my writing goals for the longest time and I finally made it happen. Next up: A passage in a book.
If I could only meet my life goals as well as I have been meeting my writing goals. Baby steps, I guess.
We also have a new cat in the house since the last time I posted. I know, another cat? She’s a gray tabby, she’s adorable and my brother named her Sweet Pea.
She’s a little Princess and she holds her against the other cats in the house. Speaking of the other cats, the kittens Lucy, Eddie and Gus turned seven months old at the end of February and they have gotten so big. Especially Gus. He’s a giant compared to Lucy. They have distinct personalities and I love them all.
My favorite thing is waking up in the morning and being greeted by all four of them in the hall. No, I don’t let them sleep with me, but that’s only because my room is a mess and they like getting into things and making noise. Once my room is cleaned out (sometime in 2019 or 2020) they’ll be allowed to sleep with me.
I’m taking a Twitter break this weekend but it’s more like I’m checking Twitter every once in a while but not tweeting. I’m so weak. One of these days I’ll take a proper break. I’m also shutting everything down by 10-10:30 at night and reading before bed. I’d like to read an hour, but I’m finding that I’m only lasting about 40-45 minutes I get sleepy. And I do get sleepy. It doesn’t take me very long to fall asleep. At least it hasn’t the past two nights. Let’s hope that trend continues for a while.
I need to get into the habit of going to bed before midnight so I can wake up early on weekdays. I need to feel like a functioning human again. Even if I don’t have a reason to wake up early, it’s better for my Bipolar Disorder if I have a regular sleep schedule.
Other things I need to do:
- Stop drinking coffee. It is wrecking my insides.
- Start moving. I’m becoming a fat ass again.
- Clear out a space in my room so I have a place to write other than my bed.
Does anyone have a dumpster I can borrow? I need to clean my room. It’s actually worse than it was a couple of months ago when I removed like six bags of clothes. It’s amazing how much stuff I have. And I cannot clean it alone.
And I’m done. Ta.
