I am trying something a little new. It’s call Stream of Consciousness Sunday a la Fadra at All Things Fadra. Essentially she suggests a prompt and you run with it for 5 minutes, timed – no editing, no spell checking. This should be interesting considering my as of late dyslexic leanings. No I have not started timing yet.
It is strange that I am able to look at my college years with more of a smile lately than my high school ones. I had amazing friends and pretty much had a great childhood but I do have several regrets about that time. The first is I wish I had studied harder and in doing that, realized a better choice for my major in college. It took me a really long time to realize that I should not have chosen something I love as a major. It became something that I had to trudge through. Secondly, I wish that I had spent less time on worrying about boys. Seriously, I do. What made me think that I was going to find the love of my life at that age? Lastly, I wish I had participated in some sort of sport. I was so scared to try something new that when soccer fell through because I loathed the coach, I had nothing to fall back on. I really, really regret that…every time I have weight to lose especially.
So I guess it is easier to come to grips with a version of yourself that you are closer to/ Maybe it’s age maybe it’s because you are closer to that person you have become. Whatever it is, it seems that looking forward is better.
Ok, so I did not do well on the no editing but it is hard to justify no editing when you have this crappy touch pad on your laptop with a mind of it’s own. Not to mention the WP delay in typing.
