Twenty Random thoughts on an rainy Monday afternoon

I do these random thoughts things at random, and I love what my mind comes up with when I just stream-of-consciousness it πŸ™‚

  1. I often struggle between self-care and making-myself-feel-even-more-crappy. For instance, when I am in pain, I can’t do much. But I need to do something. Not getting out of bed (or at least put on my daylight lamp when I am in bed) makes me feel even worse.
  2. I love the book I am editing for NaNoWriMo so much!!! It is a joy to try to make it better and bring it to second draft πŸ™‚
  3. It is so easy to get distracted when you are writing your post in a web browser. That is one of the reasons why I love Ulysses, the app I am testing out this NaNoWriMo.
  4. Cat snores may be the cutest ever.
  5. I am so proud of myself for posting something from my past that was really painful on Facebook. Just the act of writing it helped me so much.
  6. I really want to be one of those people who hasΒ a lot of posts in Instagram stories. All those tiny dashes above the screen look neat.
  7. I love to listen to audiobooks on Audible while I do random chores online. It keeps me from getting bored πŸ™‚
  8. I need to write a blog post about finishing things. It is something I struggle with.
  9. I am almost done with my 52 books challenge for Goodreads. Think I will finish reading book 52 this week!!!
  10. Sometimes I am so concentrated on my writing that I forget to drink tea. Then all of a sudden I cough because my throat is dry and I sheepishly drink cold tea and then fill the cup up again. And then drink cold tea again when I forget to drink the newly filled cup.
  11. I am the worst passenger in a car. I usually stare at the world around me, and then don’t notice that my husband says something.
  12. I am learning French using Duolingo. My main goal is that I want to be able to read Le Petit Prince, one of my favorite books, in its original language. What I didn’t anticipate, was how much I love to journal (incl. bullet journal) in French.
  13. When a cat wants attention, you give it. Or said cat is going to toss your laptop out of your lap. Or bite your typing hand.
  14. I love to check Twitter in the morning and then two seconds in (or thereabouts) I hate it. There is SO much hatred in Twitter comments. Even when it is about something innocent, trolls beg to be fed.
  15. Sometimes I miss the days when I frequented IRC chatrooms. I loved the discussions I had there. And the trivia games!
  16. I want to be a Youtuber but I am afraid people will hate the croak my voice sometimes get. Or that no one will watch my videos. (I might be a coward).
  17. I might have a Kipling addiction. Proof of that statement: lusting over the new designs and pondering breaking my no spend vow for November.
  18. Talking about No Spend: still going strong!
  19. My trick about not spending anything: I look at websites, gush about cute things, fill my shopping basket and then walk away. If webshops were real shops in my town, I would clutter up stores with half-filled shopping carts.
  20. I love lemon lozenges. They are the best πŸ™‚ Love most things with lemon in it, especially when it appears in a cake.

Bonus thought: writing these lists is so good for my NaNoWriMo wordcount πŸ˜€
