Random thoughts

Just Checking In

Words have evaded me lately. Wish I had more to share. Something clever to say. Perhaps that is my fault for not coming to these keys and allowing my fingers to get rusty. They’ve lost their connection to my mind. Perhaps. 🤔 I suppose part is in truth because I am not sure what to think. My mind is conflicted and overwhelmed with 1,000 thoughts and feelings and at the same time none. I’m trying to think if I’ve learned anything of interest in school over the last 9 weeks. Mostly what I have learned is more about APA and doing references correctly than any sane person would care to know. I have learned a lot of new terms that apply to statistics, which I hope will be helpful when I start my statistics class in like 10 weeks. I will be very happy if/when I conquer the statistics class. It has been this thing looming over my head. I have avoided it for the last 15 years. I have purposefully gone to colleges where it was not a requirement. But at last, there is no avoiding it. I’ve been listening to the Lord of the Rings audio tape and reminds me of Gandolf, “We come to it, at last, the great battle of our time.” lol.

It’s been funny listening to my brain freaking out about a decision I made a week ago even though the actions for that decision won’t occur for years. Big changes have a funny way of stirring up the system. The brain starts to tell you all these stories for reasons why the decision is the wrong one. My brain reminds me of the movie the Labyrinth, when the statues start yelling warnings, “Don’t go on…” “Go back, while you still can…” “This is not the way…” “Take heed, and go no further…” “Beware Beware” Then I have the logical side of my brain, my Hoggle, who says to myself, “Ah, don’t pay any attention to them, they’re just false alarms. You get a lot of them in the Labyrinth, especially when you’re on the right track.” Funny, I must be in a movie quote sort of mode.

I actually wish I could write more this morning but I need to get some exercise in before work. Busy day today. I hope everyone has peace in present moments today!
