The Secrets You Tell Your Teddybear.

I am officially the heaviest that I have ever been. I’m sort of numb. The last 3 months have been nothing but looking for constant distractions, one of which was food. I have picked up a slight addiction to Famous Amos cookies. It is a problem. I am seeing that.

My indulgence.

 

I have gone from being a light-weight-vegan to having a BMI over 21.

This is slightly embarrassing, but I’m about to use the excuse that many adults use. I don’t have time to get back into shape. I guess now starts the fight to try to eat healthy and to get back into a routine. One that involves sleep so I’m not so tired all the time.

I feel so gross. This has to change. Going vegan again would be such an easy fix, but I think this time, I have to be practical. I must learn to turn away from the call of the cookies.

 

New zodiac sign? Really? January 13, 2011

Crazy kids.

The earth has been wobbling (the axis shifted slightly) and the stars are no longer aligned. There were some miscalculations and boom. My life has been a lie. Okay, I’m not one of those people that relies on the stars to predict my life for me so I will be prepared but this is still slightly alarming. I am not an Aries? I am a Pisces now? Please stop an and explain. Because I will not let go of my stubbornness. That’s trait that I can give these Zodiac people that the predicted right. What if I was one of those people that got it tattooed on myself? Sigh. Here is the new calendar:

Capricorn: Jan. 20 – Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16 – March 11
Pisces: March 11– April 18
Aries: April 18 – May 13
Taurus: May 13 – June 21
Gemini: June 21 – July 20
Cancer: July 20 – Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10 – Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16 – Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30 – Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23 – Nov. 29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29 – Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17 – Jan. 20

This would have been so much cooler if I was an Ophiuchus now. Instead I got my ram taken away and was handed a fish.

Just for laughs, my father’s thoughts: “WHAT? The day I was born, I was an Aries. I am still an Aries. I don’t like Pisces, they are so pessimistic.” Hmm, maybe this explains why I’ve been so down lately. (I really do not believe this, but it is an interesting coincident.)

I promise that I’m not making this up. Multiple news sources have been reporting on it. TIME: http://newsfeed.time.com/2011/01/13/horoscope-hang-up-earth-rotation-changes-zodiac-signs/

It’s really not a big deal though. Just another thing for people to hype. Like I am right now. Ugh, I feel like I just feel into a mass-media trap.

Edit: This only applies to newborn babies. That would make sense because the reasons this change occurred are recent.  I really should make sure I know more about things before I start complaining. Now I just look like an idiot.

 

I need a distraction. November 25, 2010

To take my focus from how uncomfortably full I am. I’m close to my bathroom just in case. Each minute feels like and hour and I am trying my best to get through. The silly thing is that my body has yet another way to signal to me that it needs nourishment now. I don’t like feeling that way without it being my choice. I’m considering just letting it happen until there is nothing left to make me feel like this.

Music makes me feel more awful. I think it’s because whenever I hear anything, I sort of dance inside of my head. Dancing with a full stomach is no fun.

I met someone new today, my mom’s friend’s son. He is a strong advocate of UGA. He went there and got into Medical School. It gives me something to think about. I really don’t even want to to be in engineer.

He talked politics over Thanksgiving dinner. I enjoyed what he had to say, but then again I like hearing my conservative father discuss things with young liberals. One of the things this new guy talked about was the general shift in views as people age. “If you are young and not liberal, then you have no heart; but if you are old and not conservative, then you have no brain.” This was the first time that I heard this quote, after some intense Googling I learned that it is well known among those who are knowledgeable when it comes to politics.

Tomorrow is Black Friday. I’m looking forward to getting up and being with my family. I don’t think the four of us (my mom, dad, sister and me) have been in the same car for months. Sadly, the chance of this changing is very slight. Sometimes it feels like we all live out own lives, just happen to live in the same house. When I was younger I was always so concerned with family time. I refused to have the TV on during dinner and I insisted that we all eat together. Now I go downstairs and grab a piece of toast and a handful of cookies before I head to bed most nights.

I’m ready to stop thinking and sleep. No chance of that happening though.
