August 10, 2018: Different Connections

After work I need to contact Johanna’s good friend. We’re supposed to collect Johanna’s things in New York tomorrow, but I don’t know when we need to meet up, and the friend who lives at the apartment isn’t getting back to me. If I don’t hear from anyone I’m going to assume that I’m notContinue reading “August 10, 2018: Different Connections”

August 9, 2018: Thursday Thoughts

I tend to get easily distracted. I have books I would love to take on, and photos I would love to scrapbook, but when I get home I feel so exhausted. I end up watching YouTube videos, or baseball games. This coming Tuesday I’m going to the next Sip and Stitch workshop. I’m very muchContinue reading “August 9, 2018: Thursday Thoughts”

August 8, 2018: Book Haul Writeup

I can’t wait to take on the new book I purchased from Boston on Sunday. I picked up ‘When I Was Puerto Rican’ at Brookline Booksmith. I strongly believe in supporting independent book sellers, so when Andy and I were in Boston over the weekend, I wanted to bring home some items from this greatContinue reading “August 8, 2018: Book Haul Writeup”

August 7, 2018: Unexpected

Due to an unexpected circumstance, Andy and I had to postpone tonight’s meeting with the deacon. He understood the situation, and said he would send new dates when things improve on our end. As much as I was looking forward to this meeting, life has other plans to tend to first. I just hope weContinue reading “August 7, 2018: Unexpected”

August 6, 2018: Decode Tour in Boston

While Andy and I were in Boston on Saturday evening, we went to check out the Decode Tour, featuring Cyanotic, Rabbit Junk, and Kanga. We both wanted to check out the bands for quite some time, and Andy wanted to catch Rabbit Junk when they played in the east coast. It took forever for usContinue reading “August 6, 2018: Decode Tour in Boston”

August 5, 2018: Weekend in Boston

Our weekend Boston excursion was memorable. We saw the Glitch Mode Tour last night at Brighton Music Hall. Cyanotic, Rabbit Junk, and Kanga performed. Two other acts performed, but we missed them due to our looong search for parking. It was an awesome show regardless. Today we got to visit Brookline Booksmith. I always wantedContinue reading “August 5, 2018: Weekend in Boston”

August 4, 2018: Off to Boston

The weekend always brings fun adventures, and today is no exception. Right now Andy and I are on our way to Boston. The only time I’ve been to Massachusetts is on 2006. I went to a poetry therapy conference that weekend. It was an exciting 3 days with Lila, Johanna, and the other devoted membersContinue reading “August 4, 2018: Off to Boston”

August 3, 2018: More Journaling and Poetry

Ever since I returned from the poetry therapy intensive, I’ve been focused in really writing that 2nd book. In order to get that going, I need to have more material. I have the small pieces on my poetry blog, Poetic Threading, that I can expand on. I also write in a paper journal that IContinue reading “August 3, 2018: More Journaling and Poetry”

August 2, 2018: Busy Month

This month is going to be pretty busy. I don’t really mind that, since my days usually consist of working and being at home. Weekends will have Andy and I going to different locations. Nothing extremely far, but it will be nice to have time away from Hunterdon County. I’m hoping to have some timeContinue reading “August 2, 2018: Busy Month”

August 1, 2018: Goals in Writing

We turn the page now to August. Last month brought some truths to light. It began with me feeling very frustrated about my situation. As the month progressed, I continued to feel worried, yet I gained a clearer sense of what needs to be accomplished to achieve my goals. I still have a lot ofContinue reading “August 1, 2018: Goals in Writing”
