WHAT I'M THINKING ABOUT + DEALING WITH RIGHT NOW // and yes, I'm actually listening to christmas music now

November 11, 2017

I get terrified about tomorrow's. in the sense of not knowing what will happen. Or when change does occur, I get thrown off balance. With the recent time change (also the fact that I keep on forgetting to change my clock in my car LOL) I feel soooo messed up. Like, I went to work the other day and LEGIT I FELT LIKE I WASN'T SUPPOSED TO BE THERE. I was freaking out bc "wait. this isn't my shift? did I just clock in saying that it was 3 when it's really 4? or...IS IT 4 AND NOT 3?!?!?!" 

my face obviously showed my concern bc one of my friends was like "Julia what's wrong?"
BUT TO BE FAIR THEY STILL HAVEN'T CHANGED THE BIG CLOCK AT THE LIBRARY. it's totally messing with me.

but seeeeeeeeeeeeee. My world can get shaken that randomly. and well. I HATE IT.
(aka i really need to figure out that clock thing)

me every time i walk in at the library to see the clock still hasn't changed but i desperately need it to be done 

So, two days ago was our official last day of the farming year at the CSA. it was a HARD day. I worked 11 hours between there and the library so I didn't have much time for emotional thoughts. but man, now they're sinking in. and add to the fact it snowed yesterday (thankfully it melted omw.)

I'm SUPER excited to have a little more time for creative stuff tho! And, since my sister's + I are doing the Christmas event again this year, that time won't open up until after thanksgiving. THEN HELLO HOLIDAY SEASON. (yes. I have conformed. My record player is full force Bing Crosby)

then again, I've got a cold. I think I'll just blame it on the kids books I shelve. *shudders*
 also last week when one of my co-workers car battery was dead so we jumped her car lol #awesomelifelessons

(THANKS DAD FOR MAKING SURE I HAD THOSE JUMPER CABLES + HOW TO USE THEM)


but bc of said cold I'm enjoying my peppermint tea again. oh, how I love my peppermint tea. 
and my mom asked my to make a christmas list. In my entire life, I've never actually made one of those FOR REALS. I'm more like the "just give me the thing I didn't know I wanted" person.

I genuinely miss summer. the warmth. the swimming. barefoot-ness (I ran to the garage today when it was 9 degrees. not recommended)
yet I'm genuinely intrigued to see what is coming next.

also. I have come to realize how book addicted I am. *grins at multiple growing stacks on desk + bed + book shelves + night-tables*

One last thing. I'd like to ask you a favor. ask me a sad or happy or funny or sporadic or silly or serious or -------- question. 
I am curious to see how many of these things I can answer in either a blogpost or Q+A. AND IF YOU'RE COOL WITH ME USING YOUR NAME/BLOG LINK LET ME KNOW BC THAT'D BE GRAND

welllllll - I best be going. I am heading to work soon. it's only my second saturday shift ever. I don't think I can complain about that. *waves* 

WHAT ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT OR DEALING WITH???
WILL YOU ASK ME A QUESTION PLEASE?? thx

  5. Time changes are confusing and annoying. We recently changed to daylight savings here for the summer, and I know what you mean! I hope you can adjust to it soon, and get over your cold too - that's no fun. :( Oh, and good on you for knowing how to jumpstart a car! I can change a tire and check the oil, but I probably should learn how to jumpstart a vehicle.

    Um, question: what is your favourite thing about today (whatever day you answer the questions), or what song makes you feel nostalgic? And of course you can use my name/link. I'm looking forward to reading your answers - this will be fun! xx

    P.s More sky pictures, yay! :D Haha, I feel like I'm going to be noticing photos of the sky so much more now.

  7. Man, I don't comment enough, but I so love your blog! Every post makes me smile or think deeply or laugh, or all three, and I love it! As for questions... Well seeing as you're becoming more aware of your addiction to books (don't worry, you're not alone, I'm in the exact same boat xD #bookaddictionsarethebest) how about telling us what you're reading right now, and giving us your top fiction + non-fiction + Bible book + whatever other book out of what you're reading at the moment? I love hearing about what other people are reading... it satisfies my nosy book-loving heart. :D

  15. Love this post, and 9 degrees is too cold! And I hope you feel better soon.
    For a question... Do you find that you write differently in your journal then your blog, or is it pretty much the same "voice" but just different thoughts? Do you ever journal something you blogged just so you can add details you weren't comfortable sharing with us ;)?
    And you can use my name and link!
