Today I feel Disappointment (blue and teal mixed) and Frustration (red).

Old college habits of procrastination are still alive and well it seems as I try to adjust to working a lot more from home. I’ve had to burn a lot of time every day recently to finish some project work, and it’s going to be interesting to see how close to the deadline I get if I want to be paid for that work this month.

Looks like I’ve got a lot of small habits to change. Maybe rather than trying to change my whole schedule and life, I should start changing small habits one at a time. We’ll see how it goes from here.

Today I feel Joyful (yellow).

7-11 started selling my favorite popcorn again! For those that don’t understand… this popcorn can turn any bad day into a good day with one bite. After the bag is done, nothing is bad anymore. The end.

Today I feel Interest (orange).

I recently have spent some time with an LGBT community group. I haven’t gone to many meetings because I usually have work, but it is a nice group of people just to sit and chat with and not have to worry about anything. Actually played cards the last time I went.

Anyway, the group has started up a bilingual blog, and asked if I would be willing to write something. I’m not sure what yet, and I will probably wait till I catch my life back up, but I’m interested in writing something. I might also do a little editing work now and then.

I’ll be sure to link my article when I finally write it. Until then, feel free to check it out:

Silence Ends

Recently I have been feeling rather Depressed (blue).

It’s been a few years since I felt so down. All motivation was drained from me, and there were a few days I wasn’t eating as well as I should have. I seem to be back to normal, and am now making time to write again. My poor book hasn’t been updated with a new chapter in ages, something I am just a few hundred words away from remedying.

I’m not 100% sure I’m back to full power yet, and I have a lot of work I am behind on. I do plan to keep the blog going though! So stay tuned.

Today I feel puzzled (teal).

Once again I had some strange dreams. I don’t remember much about the individual dreams themselves, but in each dream I would wake up and be in a different dream. The same people were in all the dreams, but what was happening was always changing. I know some of the dreams made me feel really happy (yellow), others rather sad (blue)… thankfully none of them felt scary (dark green). Some of them seemed so real, that after “waking up” so many times and being in yet another dream, I honestly wondered when I woke up this morning if I was still dreaming.

Lots of strange dreams recently…

Today I feel Amused (yellow).

I had the strangest dream. There were these plant monsters that were attacking, and so I calmly went to a store to get some weed killer spray. The old woman who lived on the top floor of the shop asked if I was going to live in one of the apartments again. One of the floors had a lot of fish and aquarium equipment for sale. I started thinking to myself that I should move back into the apartment there, and maybe get a job helping with the shop. That way I could spend a lot of time taking care of all the fish. By this point I seemed to have forgotten the plant monsters wreaking havoc somewhere. I guess they weren’t that scary since a spray bottle could take them out.

Today I feel Inspired (yellow and light green mixed).

I stumbled across some YouTube videos with clips from a show called What Would You Do?

In this show, actors will play out something in public that presses a social issue of some kind. One example was this video where a “mother” was strictly controlling the food her “daughter”. This got into a lot of body image issues, and sure enough people in the restaurant spoke up for the little girl. Interesting was when they switched child actors for a “son” it was a lot more accepted.

Anyway, watching some of these clips and seeing people stand up for strangers filled me with a sense of admiration (light green) and joy (yellow). My favorite video for the day:
