Pointless Ramblings

I’m very talented at procrastination, I was born with mediocre talents but excel wonderfully at procrastination and becoming easily distracted. I’m obviously supposed to be doing homework right now.  I thought about working on some artwork for our home, I even took out the supplies and then saw the laptop shining blue — indicating it was full of life and buttons that were ready to go clickety clack.

So here I am, browsing through pages all the while attempting to write about…honestly, I have no idea what I’m trying to say.

Earlier today, I was thinking that my thoughts often go to weird extremes. I’m sure i’m not the only one it happens to, but I’ve found it hard to relate to people or find anyone who isn’t ashamed to admit to them. For example, today as I was sitting in the toilet at work. I thought, what if while I was on the toilet I had an earth shakingly loud fart. So loud that everyone rushed to see what caused the building to tremble… only to find me sitting on the loo and the only words to escape my mouth were,”oops, I farted.” It would be so embarrassing. Stupid, I know. But sometimes I’m plagued by weird, stupid, or all together messed up scenarios in my head and I struggle with how to deal with these non-existent situations. I’ll spend minutes, hours, and sometimes even days worrying and finding ways on how to resolve these issues and often find that I can’t move on until I do.

But anyways. I’m not even sure what I’m rambling about. Just aimlessly rambling.

Last weekend, the boyfriend and I wanted to go for a drive so we headed out east and happened upon Elk Falls. We were actually supposed to go to a town that was further east but we were losing daylight and gas. So we stopped at Elk Falls instead. Even now, I think I was foolish. It was cold! Too damn cold for a photographic adventure. Hardly any photos turned out well, my hands were too busy trembling but I wanted to explore dammit! I walked down the hill and towards the miniature waterfall. I treaded carefully over the rocks, hoping I wouldn’t slip into the lake and die of hypothermia — meanwhile my boyfriend waited comfortably in the warm car. (that jerk!)  I had been here before, briefly, and yet again I was plagued with thoughts that I would be murdered by the hills have eyes-esque murderer. It would be so simple. We’re both out in the country, no one knows where we are. Alas, we survived with some shaky photos and a stuffy nose to prove it!

Also, I want to say I love old cemeteries. I’ve spent a lot of time visiting them. There’s something about them that I just can’t get enough of. I do try and be as respectful as I can be when I walk through them. I say hello and have conversations with them, and lament not having flowers to leave behind.

By the end of this brief quest, my boots were filled with cold water. It took about 5 minutes to thaw them out.  I’m ready for spring.

Choo Choo 1/365

I’ve decided to start my project 365!

Yesterday, my boyfriend and I attempted to brave the winter cold. It was a complete and utter failure. We went to a local park that has a train that rides around the entire park, Watson Park. We had hoped that it would be covered in snow but even though it was extremely cold it had melted. After less than 10 minutes of walking in the park we gave up. My boyfriend waited in the car for me while I attempted to take pictures of the train but that didn’t last long. It was such a terribly cold day. I’m over it, I mentioned before that I missed the snow but nope Nope NOPE! I hate it, I’m over the cold. I want spring! I want sun! BLAH! I want to resume my travels to adventure lands and not bitterly cold lands!!

Stupid Hands

It’s been a while since I’ve been on an adventure and it’s made me quite sad, but this weather hasn’t made it easy for me to go exploring. My hands freeze up anytime they’re exposed to freezing temperature for long periods of time, the nerves get shot up and they turn a bluish red hue and twinge a bit.  Stupid hands. The weather, however, has been sporadic. Oh, Kansas and your fickle weather. 

I’m hoping that soon I will be able to go out to the many places I’ve discovered through endless googling. Gotta love that google. Until then, I will be home patiently waiting for it to be warm enough to venture into potentially wonderful travels.
