#DSFWeeklyRewind: Can I get a Do-Over?

Good afternoon Rewinders! I seem to have a pattern of good weeks followed by bad weeks. If that’s really true, this coming week should be phenomenal!

The short version: I am so awkward that I managed to show my crazy (as one of my co-workers would say) to the gentleman that took me out last weekend, and now I’m being ghosted.

Or at least I’m 97% certain that’s what has happened. I’ve been kind of fixating on how to fix it, which of course always makes it worse, right?

Best Laid Plans…

There are times when something happens that makes me question all sorts of things… usually (especially since I got my official Asperger’s diagnosis) about whether or not that diagnosis was correct. It’s strange to go one’s whole life thinking you were “normal,” but knowing inside of you that you weren’t quite that, but not knowing how to explain it to anyone.

And on snowy days like today, when things are not entirely the way they are supposed to be, it leaves me feeling more than a little introspective.

DSF Weekly Rewind: I won NaNo!!

Good evening beautiful Rewinders! Normally I don’t write this post until Sunday, but this week you’re lucking out and getting it early! And you’re getting a two-for-one Rewind!

That’s partially because I feel a little guilty about not writing anything on here last week. Mostly, though, it’s because I want to write, but need a little break from my NaNoWriMo project. I’ve done nothing but write in my spare time during the last 48 hours of NaNoWriMo!!

But it was worth it because I won.  Continue reading “DSF Weekly Rewind: I won NaNo!!”

My First Hurricane…

And I’m gonna do my best to skip it.

I have to admit, having never been through a hurricane before, I wasn’t worried initially. The settings on my Facebook news feed are set so the things I see first are inspirational or funny. I’ve been too busy working on lesson plans or trying to get caught up on my sleep or doing mindless things (like watching Netflix stuff) so I can sleep to really pay attention to the hullabaloo about the hurricane.

Speaking of watching stuff… if you’ve got nothing better to do (like you’re waiting for the apocalypse in the form of Hurricane Harvey), you might want to check out the movie What happened to Monday.

Time to Refocus

Sometimes it takes a change of scenery to realize that your world has become out of focus. Spending the last few days at home has helped me to realize that I haven’t had my priorities 100% in the right place. I’ve been spending too much time trying to figure out what was going on with a man who didn’t even see me as a person, so I’ve let important things, like my writing, sit on the back burner.

Weekend Coffee Share: Boys vs. Men

This weekend, if we were comparing life notes over coffee, first of all, I’d tell you that the link up as moved. Instead of linking to it now links to Nerd in the Brain.

And then I’d invite you to curl up on the couch with me while we have some soothing music in the background to help reduce my current sense of ire.  Continue reading “Weekend Coffee Share: Boys vs. Men”
