I’m a night person by preference.? It’s for a number of reasons, but mainly due to the smaller number of people awake that are entitlement-driven, ego-centrical, or just plain STUPID.? I’m one of those people who prefers……and call me old-fashioned…….at least semi-intelligent conversation.? The other reason being that it’s very quiet at night – very serene and peaceful, so I can go for a walk at night and it’s very pleasant.? I have seen in my travels, places and things that would make very cool pictures, yet I need to get a new battery for my camcorder – which also takes still pictures in addition to movies.
Perhaps someday I’ll get a new battery and take some pictures, but then I’ll have to remember to take my camera with me in order to take said pictures, and then get them somewhere online where they can be enjoyed by many people.? It’s a process.? I’m working on it.? I think one of these nights, I just need to go out at night for a few?hours with my camera to take pictures because things always look very different at night, and you can pick up on things when you’re really looking for them.
Now if I can just get a new battery to keep me awake at night easier……….I’m working on that too. 😉
Each day, it seems I do pretty much the same thing…..get up, get dressed/cleaned up, have dinner or go about town with the fam and then eat, and then go to work for the night. After I get off work, then I either do my plasma donation & go home, or just go home and zonk out.
Makes me glad I have days off sprinkled in there somewhere, so perhaps I can work on a probect or do something I WANT to do rather than everything that I HAVE to do for a change. I think this is why I have to take a vacation from time to time – to recenter and get my sanity back on track.
I think that’s all I do each week – just mill about like a moppet doing what is expected of me……that’s sad.
I so need to change this.
Lately, I have noticed the shadow of complacency looming over my head. It hangs like an eerie fog, surrounding my being and sapping the spark of spontaneity. It’s something I’m sure that happens to many people for various reasons.
I would think that being in a career that centers around change would be a good thing, but things don’t move that fast in the fog of night, and then it creeps in, making you sleepy and even more unlikely to do much that requires active input. One of my problems is that I need to lose weight, and one thing I’ll tell you about desk jobs…..you don’t move about a great deal – you sit most of the time unless it’s to go pee or grab some food or drink….it’s not healthy, which is why health clubs are so popular. Yes….they found their target audience.
I did have good things happen lately too, like my classic car is running once again thanks to our family mechanic – what a Godsend! One thing I do enjoy about older cars is that I, for the most part, can work on them myself. It’s something I can tinker on, clean up, and really enjoy.
I’m trying to keep as many things that are positive happening in my life, so perhaps one day, the fog will lift, and things will become brighter. I’ll keep working on it.
Everyone at one point or another has made a list – a list of things to do, movies to watch, places to go, people to see – you get the idea. I have some of those same lists – only they seem to grow.
The type of list that sucks is the catch-up-on-things-that-break list…..not my favorite. Right now, I need to get one car running, the brakes changed on the other, a new fridge for our food, and some dental work done (not on me, thank goodness). My other list is of things I’d like to spend time doing – like drawing, making websites, listening to music….the things I LIKE.
Yeah……that list is collecting dust.
Perhaps someday I’ll catch up on my lists before I have to make them a bucket list – I HOPE.
