Chewing gum, sledding, peanut butter, new book smell, coffee, soccer games, and sleeping in. These are some things that are going through my brain at the current moment. I have no idea why, but they just are going through my brain. It’s constant too. It never stops. I sometimes wish it would, but if I am being completely honest I like that things just rattle through my brain like a ping pong.
I keep trying to focus my crazy ideas down to one, but I sure am trying. They say to be successful you need to be focused on a certain theme or something that you are passionate about. To some extent I do believe that is true, but what I don’t think most people realize or that they forget that being human means you really can’t be completely focused. I tell ya I wish I could be super focused in on one story line or whatever because it then might be easier for people to read or understand what I am saying. Alas, I just want to convey the daily struggle of staying on topic.
Surprisingly I do have some sort of topic to stay on. Something that I know quite a bit about and that I am, to put it plainly, in love with. Oh, wait I take it back there are so many topics I want to cover, but I will first say it’s soccer. The world’s sport! The greatest sport on the planet. I am literally laughing out loud because I know I can hear people’s brain just turning trying to figure out some sort of comeback to the fact that I out right said that soccer is the greatest sport in the world. It’s so true though. If you are American I truly am sorry for this news you are currently reading. I am American yes, but by birth.
There are so many other wonderful topics of discussion. I can tell you a lot about how to keep a house clean, and I can also get dropped anywhere and find my way home. These are only a few of my many skills. I like to think of my skills as secret weapons. They are things you can’t really put on a resume, but they are some of the most useful tools that keep you alive. I love to problem solve. Thinking outside of the box, literally and figuratively.
I can meet someone and about 10 minutes later know their personality. I can tell if they are the type of person I want to spend time around. Will I benefit from a friendship such as theirs? These are questions that I ask myself quite often, and I do believe that others should too. Back to being a problem solver. I have always been the kid that is given a task and finds innovative ways to get it done. I like to be efficient but also get the job done well. Okay, this is true half of the time. Who am I kidding, I pick and choose what I am going to be efficient with. I try very hard to enjoy certain tasks but you can’t always have fun with grocery shopping.
I love to journal. For me it is really like I am dumping my brain onto the pages. I don’t have any organization whatsoever when I am journaling because I don’t want to think about what it is I am writing and just get it out of my brain. I stress write a lot. I could really go for a cup of coffee even though it is almost midnight. Night owl I am. I have work in the morning, and from there I will say to myself….only two days until my 1 day weekend. It’s never worth it I say. I want my full weekend back. I thank my mother for my love of coffee.
I thank my father for my stubbornness and my will to work hard and be great. Both of my parents gave me the necessary tools to be a hard worker. I love them for that.
Okay, I am starting to bore myself of all this dumb talk. I have too many things to think about right now. Like sleep and how much I need it.
Eat some ice cream and skip down the sidewalk while you still can.
