I’ve been hiding for days

I haven’t left the house since August 16th. I told ya: I’m Emily Dickinson. I’m going out on Sunday to exercise and run a few errands. I think I feel a depression coming on…and it’s not even winter. Bummer.

Maybe it is because I moved my office into my living room. I LOVED it at first, now I’m kind of sick of always being in my living room. Maybe it is because the temp agency hasn’t called with a part-time job. Maybe it is because I’m no longer studying for the boards. I was relieved at first to no longer have to study but now… Maybe it is because I have been working 9-10 hour days (without extra pay 90% of the time) and still behind…Maybe I’m feeling depressed because I have depression? A novel concept. I have been diagnosed with “Major depressive disorder, recurrent episode, unspecified”. I found that out recently. I’m not supposed to know. 😉

Enough about me and my problems. Hasn’t this been a horrible summer? Gaza, James Foley (the journalist recently killed), Syria. etc. etc. I have cut down on my news watching  significantly but I don’t want to not know what is going on in the world. Ignorance truly is bliss but I’d rather be informed. I try to just get breaking news from Twitter.

Um, good news for me? I finally brought my flight ticket to go to Las Vegas! I’m more nervous about Vegas than I was about Oaxaca, Mexico. There isn’t even a language barrier but I’m worried about the airport. I think it is because I really, really, really, wanted to go to Mexico. I don’t care that much about Vegas. I have never wanted to go there. Yet I’m leaving on a 6:50AM flight on October 14. yay me? I think it’ll be interesting but will I LOVE it? I hope so but I’m not counting on it. I will try my best to have fun. I just think all the fun stuff is pricey so I’m not sure what I will be able to do there….besides walk around until my feet pain kicks in.


Music for the week:  Ellie Goulding, The War on Drugs, Mariah Carey, Lucy Hale, Phillip Phillips,  Ed Sheeran, Lana Del Rey, Mary J. Blige

I’m glad I gave The Killing a second shot. It is still a bit too dark for me but it isn’t a bad show.

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Buddhism: For Beginners! The Ultimate Guide to Incorporate Buddhism Into Your Life – A Buddhism Approach For More Energy Focus And Inner Peace by Dominque Francon

Knitting projects of the week: I love working on my shawl. I probably need to give myself deadlines when working on projects. I don’t know if that would work. Here is an updated shawl pic:

Can’t wait to get out of the house on Sunday. 🙂   I’m going to “work” a bit more tonight than get into bed and listen to music and play monopoly. I will probably go to bed early tonight since I’m working OT tomorrow at 6AM. Yay, I get paid for that. My life doesn’t completely suck.  (To some people that sounds painfully boring. lol).
