State of the Union

Posted By on January 30, 2012

My Auntie Debbie reads my blog. I have no problem with this. (Also, yes I’m 34 years old and still call my aunts “auntie”. ) But since I have been falling off the writing bandwagon in the last year or two, she always mentions how I never post anymore. And then I feel bad and feel like I should write something. But then I never do. Because then I turn on the TV and my mind becomes mush.

Lately I have just had no desire to write here. Usually it is just laziness and deciding to watch TV or go to bed at an obscenely early time that leads to no posts. But for the last few weeks, I’ve had thoughts and post ideas and have written these down! I’ve even started like three or four posts only to give up halfway through and then just shut the computer down. The desire, I no has it.*

I think that’s normal. It’s life. It all ebbs and flows. And as much as the whole NaBloPoMo thing helped me kind of get back in the habit, sometimes there is just nothing to write about. I swear, I can talk for days, but lately I’ve had nothing remotely interesting or funny or exciting to talk about.

Plus, even the thought of opening the laptop at home lately has made me stabby with rage. I just don’t want to do it. I’m on the computer all day and on my phone when I’m not, so when I get home, I just want to relax and watch crappy television.

I’ve hardly been on Twitter, in fact I usually ignore it for a majority of the day, unless I’m bored on the bus or train on my commute. I don’t go on Facebook, but that isn’t really any different since I never go on FB. Only to wish people a happy birthday.

I still will play my Words with Friends games and IM with people on gchat, but that has been about it. I’ve been technologied out. And that’s fine. Because I’m a bit too dependent on it as it is.

So, all that to say, I’m feeling less ragey about actually blogging this week. And I might even finish those posts I have recently started. And that I just wrote a whole post about not wanting to blog nor be on the computer, just to…post on my blog from my computer. /meta

And I’ll leave you with a question – where do I find some cheap t-shirts to work out in? I haven’t bought a t-shirt since college, I think. All of my current shirts are from previous jobs and I got them all for free. So needless to say, they are starting to show quite a bit of wear and tear. And I don’t appreciate paying for shirts, especially more than a couple of bucks, so I need your help. Kthanxbai.**

    I like these shirts at Target. They used to be called boyfriend tee but they are vneck and have a tiny pocket on them. They are a good length too.

    The only thing, they are a little thin. I don’t think they are see through, but some of the lighter colors I have, I don’t wear out of the house. Overall they are very comfortable for working out and sleeping. Especially sleeping.

    You could always buy men’s undershirts. You know, the kind that come in three packs? Or just sign up for a whole bunch of 5K races. You’ll get a shirt and the motivation to keep working out!

  3. I always try to find t-shirts to work out in at Salvation Army or Goodwill. They are inexpensive and the ones in Decatur and Springfield have some pretty good stuff! Just a thought…..I’m just so damn cheap, I don’t like to pay much for clothing, especially something I’m just going to sweat in at the Gym! 😉

    i mostly work out in tank tops, my favorite are usually Old Navy wife-beater style (aka more sleeveless than strappy).

    i’m with you. blogging at night just seems… terrible. i don’t want to be on the computer after a long day of… being on the computer!

    I work out in tank tops, and am also in Canada, so I’m no help.

    You know I hear you on the computer thing. I mean, I haven’t had the TIME to sit down and write, and if I found some, I don’t even know where to begin this week.

    Target has some decent shirts for working out. Old Navy and Marshalls and /TJ Maxx you may find some deals.

    Oh Kristabella you wrote something for your old Auntie! Even though you did complain the whole time it was good to hear from you.

    I say go with the men’s t-shirts. They’re not too thin and cheaper.

    Love you!!

  10. I am having the same “issue” lately. I am so busy at work that I hardly have time for twitter and when I get home opening my laptop is sooo not on my list of things to do. What the heck happened to 2008 when I blogged every day, busy schedule be damned?!
