That's what I want to do. I've just been too down/unmotivated to actually play. I've been spending loads of time looking for a new place to live. I think I found something. I'm going to check it out later tonight. Just have a couple of hours to kill first.
I forgot to mention I had a really nice time with my dad when he was visiting, and I am holding on to something that belonged to my great grandfather, so I was having a bit of a WHOA! feeling. It did make me miss my grandpa though. He was the only grandpa I had, cuz I do not count my step-grandfather as anything more than a perverted sleazeball. Anyway, Grandpa was AWESOME! He was so kind and fair and loving. Sometimes I wish he was here to talk to him. I never got to have any grown up conversations with him and I know he would have been the type of person that would have helped to mold me into the person I am/could be.
Things at work are going pretty good. A few hiccups here and there but I'm trying to handle all the new responsibility and the added amount of associates. I am actually training one of my girls in my first department to take the reins a bit. She's doing such a fantastic job (as they all are) so I couldn't be more proud of my department. The new department I have is going to take more work, but I can handle it.
My birthday's also coming up. In a few weeks I'll be 32. There are things that I want to accomplish and things I had hoped to accomplish and it's just funny to reflect and realize how quickly things can change. That starting on one path can lead you into a totally opposite or new direction.
When I was in high school, we had gotten this agenda that had an envelope that was kind of like a time capsule. I had looked at it a few years ago and I realized how trivial the contents were. I think it would be nice to do something like that again. Not to mention taking up writing again. I used to write poetry all the time and stories and really, when is the last time I ever mentioned it? I dug out these old books I had. I think I'd really like to give it another go. I had always wanted to publish my novel or a collection of my own poetry.
Then of course there is my simming time. I haven't even properly played Island Paradise lately or done photo shoots for my own enjoyment and to keep my editing skills up as well. I've been trying to figure out a way to get prints of some of my photos on the kiosk at the store using my USB, and nothing. It'd be nice to hang some of them.
Still baking too. I made these smores cookies and rocky road squares. Work LOVED them lol, and some want the recipe or for me to make them this or that. If I could, I would open a little service to sell my baked goods, but our health regulations state no personal kitchens can be used for selling goods. Although something to think about 30 some years down the line when I am ready to retire.
My Name is LE or LE Style. I have a tendency to go off on tangents from time to time. Such is the MADNESS of my Mind.
