The Recents: 24 February 2014

First of all, is it really the end of February already?  This short month thing always gets me.  Anyways…

Music:  Lorde.  All things Lorde.  Also trying to track down songs you hear on TV shows or movies.  They always fit the scene in which they are being played, and I applaud those whose sole job is to pick the music for the score or soundtrack.  However, I have to hear it outside of the show or movie to know if I really like it.

TV/Movies:  I failed last week!  I said I was going to watch all my iTunes rentals, but I didn’t.  Instead, I have been gorging myself on The Real Housewives of Orange County (no judgement) and re-watching all 3 season of Game of Thrones.  This week, I really  will watch my iTunes rentals!

Books:  travel books, yet again.  I am trying to decide a location for a trip for Anya and I.  I love taking trips with just her.  She is older, understands more, and seems to enjoy the trips.  Right now, I’m trying to decide between Amsterdam, Stockholm, or Madrid.  Yes, tough choices.  That’s why I am doing so much research!

Foods:  anything that comforts me.  Andy has been gone a lot and left again for 5 weeks.  Even if I am used to him leaving, the separation is tough.  I do not like saying that food comforts me.  I do not need food to make me feel better or complete.  However, my comfort foods do put me in a better mood.  This includes orange chicken, my chocolate chip cookies (emphasis on mine, because mine are ridiculously delicious), hamburger and noodles (my Grandma Shirley’s recipe), breakfast foods, and tons of coffee.

On a related note, I have been using a 1:1 ratio of strong coffee with Starbucks caramel coffee.  Amazing!  I feel like a drug dealer as I cut my “good” coffee with the cheaper stuff!

Topics of interest:  I generally always have an opinion on something, but it is a slow week.  What can I say?  The only concern I have this week is the TSL/SSL fail code for all Apple products, and this is because I have all Apple products.  Scary stuff, people – research it if you have not already.

Goals for the week:  stop letting my anxiety control me.  Sometimes, I can manage pretty easily.  Other days, I am almost in a full-blown panic attack about the smallest thing.  I do not usually talk about my anxiety because I feel like it is a weakness of mine.  It is not!  I need to recondition myself to not think of it as weakness.  However, talking about it helps me to see myself and my situations more clearly and to react more positively.  Anxiety would not and should not control my life.  It is still a work in progress, but better managing it is one of my goals this week.

I also want to get more sleep.  I am always so tired!  And on that note, I am off to bed…
