Weekly Round up…

Oddly enough this past week had similar experiences to the week prior which unfortunately was a bit draining. There never seems to be a shortage of drama in our society, I just wish it’d stop finding me. I don’t have the energy to waste on it.

On a good note I mended the broken bridge of last week and wrote some awesome new stuff this week for my book. The first time I wrote the book I forced myself to write it in order even if that’s not what I was actually hearing at the time. This time I’ve decided to write whatever comes to me and worry about piecing it together later. It’s made the writing so much more exciting this week. I wrote about magical trunks and prophecies and every time I re-read it I feel excited to read what comes next. I hope that’s a good sign.

I’ve been totally addicted to Arctic Monkeys for the past two weeks now, listening to them and Tegan & Sara on a constant loop together. I was super stoked to find out they are playing here the day before my birthday next month, but unfortunately no one really wants to go with me. It’s a little disappointing to me that no one likes the same things I do, but my mother has offered to accompany me just because she loves me and it’s my birthday. I hope it won’t be too miserable for her.

Lastly I am happy to say this week that I’ve officially lost fifteen pounds. I’ve been trying to shed this fat suit since January and it’s moving slow, but it feels good to hit this hurdle. I still have a lot to lose, but I’m determined like never before and praying the pounds will keep coming off.  

Peace – Sarah

Crazy Week

Let me start by saying… Thank God it’s Friday!

This week was pretty draining and rewarding all at the same time. Some unfortunate things happened like a long time friend said farewell for really no good reason at all except maybe her erratic state of mind at the moment. It’s something I have to just let go of, but it was disturbing regardless.

My revised story sounds beautiful in my mind and I’m excited to get started on the edits. Of course there’s yet another new story or “plot bunny” (c/o Maggie) playing out occasionally, but it’s not overpowering me yet. I’m going to try to keep the reigns on it a little tighter this time around so I don’t lose weeks of writing over it.

I came across a few new artists (only to me, they’ve actually been around for a little bit now) and they’ve filled my insides with this completely alive feeling. One of the bands is playing in my home town in a little over a month from now the day before my birthday. I REALLY hope to go – I’m in the mood to jump around in a pit!

Randomly wrote these random thoughts earlier this week at work, in the midst of drafting a final location on a new house.

“I live in a place my brain created, always present in my mind with its own soundtrack. I live most of my life inside of my head even when I appear to be right there in front of you. It’s just the nature of my brain, you see, and the reality I no longer have to face because of this place.”

Sometimes it feels like there just aren’t enough words…

Not enough juice in my brain to let the words flow through to my fingers.
Not enough time to write everything I feel.
Not enough.
