I Think I’m Getting Old

Oh, the things I consider to be entertaining at my age. Of course, I enjoy reading a good book. Although, I haven’t read anything because of the reading that I have to do for my classes. The thought of reading a book after assigned reading just isn’t an appealing option. However, during my free time I enjoy watching TV Shows and movies. My addiction is serious. I have an actual app called Seen It just to keep up with my shows. I come across movies mostly just browsing Netflix or Amazon Prime. I think maybe I will start doing movie reviews here too. I realized the other day that I don’t see that very often when I’m reading blogs. Some people like clothes, shows, and beauty tips. I like movies and shows. So far I’ve done one book review but I do plan on doing more in the future. I just may do some for books I’ve already read. We’ll see.

I’ve always been interested in the writing of scripts and books. I’m a creative writing major after all. I’m doing very well in school by the way. Some of the courses I’m taking are very interesting. I’ve been especially indulged in my sociology course. It seems like some of the things I talk about with my friends fit into the realm of sociology. I briefly considered becoming a sociology major but that thought was completely short lived. I mean, I love the subject and all but I haven’t a clue where that would lead me in the future. I’m sure there are a plethora of possibilities… that I’m just too uninterested to explore.

I was searching for a wordpress theme because I wanted something very simple that would fit my blog. I couldn’t find anything suitable enough for me. Some of the themes that I do like appear to require photos in nearly every post. Not really sure how this would work for me because I don’t take photos often and especially not just for a blog. That’s too much pressure. In the meantime I plan on just tweaking this theme more. After all, this is a theme that I made from scratch. I built this theme years ago and created numerous themes from this one during the time. I suppose it’s just easier to stick to what I know. [EDIT] I ended up finding something simple and suitable. Tweaking is in session. [/EDIT]

An Update

I have been the worst blogger. Things aren’t the same for me as they use to be years ago. Life has actually gotten exponentially better for me in the last couple of years. I’m no longer dealing with my very needy and destructive family. I’m back in school. I’ve made so many life changes from quitting coffee and doing yoga, to really focusing on making an attempt at living a stress-free life. Of course, things come along that seem to dampen things sometimes but it’s much easier for me to bounce back these days. School is school. Most of the time when I’m not working or tending to the kids, I’m tending to school work. There are some days when I’m utterly frustrated with schoolwork because my classes are online and things are done a little bit differently. For example, quite a few of my online courses will require me to keep submitting drafts for papers with requirements and what not. I mean, I get why it’s done this way but I’m not use to writing that way. I admit that I’m a last minute type of chick and I hate feeling pressured. I submitted a draft for a humanities course and my instructor docked me points because my paper was only 2 1/2 pages (the final paper was to be 3-5 pages) and I’m just like damn I thought this was a rough draft though? She was so concerned about the length of my draft that she didn’t even provide feedback for the pages I already had. It was frustrating. I truly hated that course though. It was basically a course about the history of art. I truly appreciate art, don’t get me wrong, but there are just certain pieces of art that I could do without. Like all of those statues of naked men from Greek and Roman eras. I understand their meaning, but I mean, seriously?

Other than school, everything is pretty much the same. I have had some really interesting projects that I’m currently working on to bring in more income that I feel could be successful. I’m trying to be one of those people who don’t need to rely on simply leaving the house to go to some 9-5 to make a living. Working from home has always been a dream and I plan on making that dream come true. I’m just so tired of the monotony of my everyday life and I feel like I need more freedom in my days. I’m sure anyone could relate. With the advancement of technology, working from home could really be a thing of the future. Anyway, when I finally bring these things to fruition, I will definitely be sharing them here.
