Ten on Tuesday

It seems like all of a sudden every blogger on the planet is jumping ship to WordPress and is posting about a giveaway/free product/review/other successful blogging thing every second day. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little envious. I'd also be lying if I said my ultimate goal is to be a big time blogger with thousands of adoring fans.

Up until university I would spend hours every day writing. Sometimes I'd write poems, sometimes I'd just ramble out prose until I was finished. I've been thinking a lot lately about how I want to start writing again. And at some point I realized that the timelines of when I stopped really writing on a daily basis and when my anxiety went from being an occasional visitor to a daily friend match up pretty well. I've started making myself write for 20 minutes every day. It's hard to start but once I do it I find myself losing track of time and really enjoying what I'm doing. Playing with words and rearranging sentences, putting names to feelings…I knew I missed it, but I didn't realize how much I missed it until I started doing it again.

I hate living in the city. There I said it.

I've mastered the art of popping popcorn on the stove and it's now one of my most favourite things. I know my parents always had an air popcorn popper but somewhere along the way I fell victim to the microwave popcorn revolution. But it's just not the same. I'm officially renouncing any involvement with the microwave stuff and devoting myself to "real" popcorn.

When I moved I forgot my camera. I haven't been back home since I moved to get it and it's slowly starting to drive me nuts. It's hard to practice and "get good at photography" when my DSLR is 5 hours away. I know I'll be gone home in April for Easter but I've got my fingers crossed I'll figure out a way to reunite with it before then!

I think I can officially say that I've masted the art of homemade mac & cheese. Unfortunately I have no photographic evidence of this….but the next time it's on my menu rotation I fully intend on sharing my recipe with the world. Or the 5 people who read my posts on a regular basis.

Lately everything has been purple & red. Neither of those colours have ever been my favourite but over the past month or two when asked to chose a colour for something it's always purple or red or both.

As you may have guessed by that last line I'm really just trying to pass the time until my chicken is done marinading so I can make and eat supper. I neglected to defrost said chicken so that's really prolonging the supper process. And I'm hungry.

There aren't enough words to express how ready I am for summer to happen. I miss sunshine!!

"Nine on Tuesday" Didn't have the same ring to it as "Ten on Tuesday" but I don't really have anything of value to say here. Happy Tuesday!

  1. I'm not much of a city gal either. I've been thinking about using the stove for popcorn lately, I'm just afraid to burn everything down :\
