But, oddly enough, once I do grit my teeth and get going, I always enjoy it. I truly like organizing things, and I love the feeling of being productive. It's a natural high to check something off of a to-do list, and it doesn't come with any guilt. Nope. It's pure, unadulterated satisfaction in something that took some effort. And yet... I still groan when I have to do a chore. WHY can't I get it into my head that I enjoy it?
2--- I want to get fit this summer. I'm a stress eater, and I've been going through a lot of stress lately. So I've started saying no to food, and not mentally. I literally say "no" at the fridge. It works surprisingly well, and I haven't snacked at all today. I also biked two and half miles on the stationary bike and speed-walked for twenty minutes on the treadmill. I cannot let life get to me so I'm trying to man up and call the shots.
Why I do these kinds of things I can't explain.
3--- All of my shows have been disappointing me lately. The Grey's Anatomy finale was dumb. Dumb dumb dumb. And Mad Men has been an absolute wreck lately, though I haven't seen the most recent episode. And I had to stop watching Justified because it got too creepy for me. The only show that I consistently enjoy is Modern Family. Don't let me down, guys.
4--- I really love my brother. I'm glad I've got such a good one.
5--- I think I decided what to do about my blog name, but I'll update that later. I really appreciate all of your help/comments!
6--- American things I've missed? Hulu, Pandora, no YouTube country restrictions, no language barrier, warm weather, being able to text my buds, fast laundry machines, family nearby, easy access to everything and anything, and did I mention no language barrier?
