In an odd kind of place lately.
There’s much from my past that has been coming up in random spurts. They’re like little memory landmines. I’ll be thinking of something else entirely and then WHAM! My subconscious will pop up and say “remember that time with the kangaroo, the platypus and the pink tutu?”
At the same time, my future is looming large in front of me. I’ve got all these great choices ahead of me… including the job of my dreams at the company of my dreams… and I’m so focused on getting to that point that I can’t embrace today.
I don’t know how to not be so focused on tomorrow and I don’t know why all these random things from my past are popping into my head lately. Its not like today is terrible. (Well, OK… this week at work has been incredibly insane. Where’s Nurse Ratched when you need her? As we’ve been saying all week - the inmates are running the asylum.)
It’s really time to sit back and focus on taking the time to stop and smell the roses… or whatever that flower up there is.
seagull in flight :: cape neddick, me
Hi there. Welcome to Good Advices. Stole the name from an R.E.M. song. I always liked it and thought it would be a good domain for a bit of a rebirth of sorts. Meet my warmer, softer side.
I’m in the middle of going back to school, so I’m going to stick with the default template for now. We’ll see when I can squeeze time in to finish the code. *sigh*
And the name? My favorite nickname “hockeycized” as someone put it. I can’t remember who first called me Mat, but I always liked it. It embraced my inner tomboy. And it’s an anagram of the real name, so I’m going to go with it.
Enjoy the pic. I’m off to do homework.
