“Writing gives you the illusion of control, and then you realize it’s just an illusion, that people are going to bring their own stuff into it.”
It’s another Radiohead kind of day.
I swear, three days into this week, and it STILL feels like a Monday. I’ve been busy, which is normally how I like it, but my head has stayed busy too. Which isn’t ideal for me. I’ve got so much on my mind that little things are slipping through the cracks, creating problems, and generally annoying the shit out of me. I AM going to Portland for the entire weekend though, and I’m grateful for the chance to get OUT of here. Away from the nights out, loud people, constant laughter and jokes, and best of all: work.
Yes, two days in Portland is exactly what I need right now.
For the first time in my life, I am thankful for January. It usually brings sadness, longing, and boredom. All it represents this year is peace and calm; no more holidays, holiday parties, expectations, and drunken weekends. A healthy dose of “leveling out” is what I’m hoping for, and life going back to normal. Thursday night starts it all over again with new episodes of The Office and Grey’s Anatomy, two very wonderful things to me. I can’t wait.
Thank god for January this year. And weekends away:)
Try this cafe– it’s vegan and DELICIOUS. Good for a healthy meal, helps with that leveling out. :o)
Portland is one of my favorite places– I hope you enjoy it! I’ll be in Oregon too– I’ll think of you. :o)
