Staring at a blank white screen tonight

February 4, 2016

I still have many post ideas leftover from my list.  Up & coming soon:

— childcare thoughts
— barre3

But . . . many nights after a long day I just don’t have it in me to write with that much structure or purpose.

So: without further ado, 20 random things about me.  Starting . . . now.

Gestational age:  >42 weeks if you believe my mother.

Born:  Philadelphia, PA

Blog history:  Will be 12 years this summer.  Just omg.  Prior ULR:  lostandallalone.blogspot.com.  Don’t even ask.

Current favorite TV show:  tie between Mozart in the Jungle and Silicon Valley


Daily beverage:  2-3 capsules-worth of Nespresso (black)

    Kafka on the Shore was my favorite!

    I’m trying the challenge-it feels so freeing to not check FB or Instagram when I’m on my phone, and today, I had a conversation with a sweet old man on the train since neither of us had gadgets!

    Would love a barre3 post-whenever you can!

    I just love the word "pamplemousse"
    I’ve gotten into just plain soda water (in the summer…not enticing in the cold)

    Sarah, I’m joining you in the challenge this month! I’ve modified the rules slightly, but my overall goal is the same as yours: spend more time doing things that are a better use of my time! I’m really getting back into reading in the evenings, working out and being more "present" when I am playing with my toddler, which makes me very happy! We had a fantastic speaker today at work talk about motivation and setting goals (Dr BJ Bogg). He has published a lot of research on the subject and I think a lot of his theory could apply to mastering the "less internet/phone" challenge. Thanks for your open and honest blog posts. I find I share many of the same sentiments as you πŸ™‚
