Random Thoughts for Today (Tuesday June 5, 2012):

  1. Once again: cannot believe how long it's been since I've made a blog entry: I wish I blogged more...
  2. For all of its' faults...I love my city (Lakewood, OH)
  3. I walk (on average) 15 miles/week
  4. I am so excited that biking season is upon us
  5. I wish I had a house...but only so I could have a garden and a dog. In order to alleviate these wants I funded awesome raised beds at my parents and the gardening there is going to be amazing this year...and I volunteer helping dogs (and cats) so I get my "dog-fix" (I don't really want a house when it comes down to it)
  6. My underwear was on inside out all day today
  7. I start laser tattoo removal again at this end of this month: ouch
  8. A lot of people suck...but there are more good people than bad out there: I just know it
  9. Volunteering is in my blood and is part of my basic make-up
  10. In talking with someone recently I realized I have been vegan for 7 years (not without a few [minimal] mis-steps along the way)
  11. People should help each other more
  12. Nothing in politics is really going to change: ever (and lets be honest people: the government [local, state, national] sucks overall). I vote: so leave me alone but, I truly believe we'll never see a real overhaul or radical change in our government and that is truly sad. BTW - you better vote too!
  13. I don't understand why people fight over politics (see above). I love a healthy debate (over anything) but I would never risk losing a friendship over it.
  14. Striving for perfection will make you crazy (and obnoxious); you're closer to perfect when you realize flaws can be beautiful and build character...
  15. People who can't afford to have pets shouldn't get them
  16. If you pull too far into an intersection/crosswalk and don't move your hiney out of the way of a walker/biker your car deserves to be spit on and your hood smacked
  17. I am ready to get my body back...injury: better, the last of that nasty prednisone should exiting my system (c'mon!), I'm spinning twice/week, walking, walking, walking, gym 2-3x/week : somethings gotta give!
  18. Why do people idolize celebrities and professional athletes?
  19. I tried a smart phone and I hated it so it was returned. I don't have the time, energy or desire to spend trying to make spending $30/mo on a smart phone worth it
  20. Parents should not have to bury their children
  21. I never: ever share any true fears with anyone
  22. I never: ever share my deepest thoughts, concerns or problems with anyone: ever...and I have so, so many great, great friends. I've never been burned because of sharing and I don't think it makes people weak but none of you: no one: anywhere knows my deepest fears, thoughts, misgivings, anxieties etc. - and likely that will never change - I'm weird like that
  23. I found a small rubber chicken on a walk this past weekend, I took it home, washed it and now it's in my purse: I have no idea why
  24. If everyone, everywhere gave $5 to a favorite local charity every month we could probably change the world
  25. I have never, ever wanted children
  26. I would love to own my own business some day but I have no idea what I'd do (ok - I have some thoughts but they wouldn't pay the bills)
  27. I want to be a published author someday but because of #21 and #22 above I hold back - very, very few people have "seen my stuff"! That's where some more truth about me comes through (all of my writing is in a fire safe box, under lock and key and hidden! ha!)
  28. I have the best dad: ever
  29. I don't understand why everyone isn't worrying about or researching  where their food comes from and the underlying issues surrounding so much of where we eat, how we eat, what we eat (well: not me!)
  30. I have never had cable in my life and cannot fathom a day where I spend $$ for television or radio
  31. Glad that generally speaking: life is great.
Good night people.

#6 made me laugh out loud.

Why do you think you haven't shared your deep feelings/thoughts/anxieties with anyone? Do you think you will someday? You wanna be mysterious? ;-)
