Same Ol' Spring
Hey guys! How long has it been? Don’t answer that. I know I’ve been gone for a while. Anyway, I just wanted to pop in and update you all on my riveting life. Actually, lack thereof, which is the problem. I’ll be the first to admit it: I’m in a rut. I’m bored and under-stimulated.
And here’s the biggest problem: there’s that saying about being boring. The old adage goes, “only boring people get bored,” and I fear that I’m getting boring. I’m falling into an old routine that I’m sick of, and only I have the power to fix it. And knowing it’s half the battle, because boredom and lack of zest for life is at the top of the slippery slope that leads to depression. I’m not going down that path again. So I just have to mix things up, I guess.
I need to go on more walks. I need to pet more dogs. I need to be more honest. I need to be less afraid. I need to worry less about rejection. I need to wear dresses and lay out in the sun and get freckles on the bridge of my nose.
As of now my wild and crazy lifestyle consists of class, iced coffee, and Netflix. It’s barely fulfilling. It’s the same ol’ stuff, but a different day. Same boring classes, same hazelnut iced coffee, same TV series on Netflix. Even things like my workouts and music preferences are repetitive: it’s that same cardio routine accompanied by the same playlist every day. Blah.
So here’s the deal: I need to get some Vitamin D and focus on me. Vitamin Me? No scratch that, that’s cheesy. But anyway, I really need to make some changes. Say yes more often. Go outside more often. Be present. I hope these musings on my own pathetic life aren’t boring and painful for you to read, but for some reason I have a feeling that might be the case. What can I say, I’m boring. That’s what we’ve established here.
Except for real, I’m not boring. I’m just bored, which means I’m just falling into a routine a bit too much. Nothing new and exciting has cropped up in my life in a while. So I’m gonna work on that, y’all. I'm tired of waiting around for other people to make things happen. I need to start living for Lauren. I’m using springtime as my excuse to do exactly that. More sunshine. More laughter. More books. More spontaneity. Less bullshit. Wow I think I’ve seen that exact quote on a T-shirt at Forever 21.
I'll keep you posted. Oh also, I'm officially participating in BEDA, also known as Blog Every Day in April. I hope you'll stick around for that :)
