It's One of Those Days...

where traffic sucked, I was late to work and everything seems to hit me like a ton of bricks.

It is during these times, I remember that I live with this amazing guy who I can come home to and ask for a thousand hugs.

Today's a day where being a woman just isn't meshing with me. Of course, I wouldn't trade it for the world but cramps are no joke when they're bad. I used to have a blog titled "The Crimson Clock" and it was all about womens' troubles but I couldn't keep up with it, so it's on hiatus for now.

Some women are lucky enough to never really go through this pain and some have it worse then me. Some have to stay home because it's impossible to move. I was almost at this point today at work. I was at the point where I felt like I couldn't see straight, stand up straight and at the verge of tears. It was horrible!

Luckily I took three ibuprofen, drank some tea and read some horror and funny stories online about how women deal with menstrual cramps at work. I love the internet! You can always find a thread where there's this huge sense of community. People genuinely offer advice and discuss their experiences because they want to find or help others who are going through the same things.

I can't wait until this passes. Until then, it's day by day, tea, baths and heating pads.

My New Woman Cave

I don't have pics yet, but my new Woman Cave is almost completely setup in our new place. The room is also our guest room but it is primarily a space where cavedom is the norm. Cavedom consists of less fun stuff like: organizing and paying bills, paperwork and planning.

It also consists of fun things like: listening and buying music, making awesome playlists, listening to my upcoming album, writing, poetry, journal entries, contemplation, laughing, rug-making, book reading, singing, just being, watching movies and dreaming.

I hope everyone who visits this blog has there own little nook, corner, cave where they can be creative without any distractions. Without mine, I'd simply die!

2013: Carpe Annum

It's time to seize this year by the...bells!

I have resolutions but will not be jumping into them gung ho-ishly. Instead I'll ease into them and not kill myself if I don't complete half of the list by June 2013.  A few goals I have are:

-Believe in myself, my potential and reach for my dreams
-Reduce debt and save money
-Be better than last year's self and ONLY compete and compare me with me. My good friend Cindy inspired this one. We were engaged in a deep conversation about life. She mentioned this idea to me and a spark ignited in my brain. I surveyed all of the times throughout my life in these recent years when I've compare myself to other people or just felt less productive in certain areas. She told me that the only person I can be in competition with is myself. I must outdo what I did last year. This is a lesson I will never forget.
-Stress less (Or rather resume my morning yoga)

What are some of your resolutions/plans/goals for this New Year? Get off the couch and stop engaging in beach whaledom? Stop picking your nose while driving? Speed less?

Inquiring minds need to know!
