It's Almonds and Pistachios

I feel like a broken record repeatedly talking about how busy life is.  But it is.  It's almonds.  And pistachios.  And acorns, cashews, peanuts, hazelnuts.  (Get it?  It's nuts!)

I've begun counting down to the time when my classes for this additional teaching license are over (31 days).  I've started thinking forward to next year.  To my next move.  I have yet to experience no school.  I'm looking forward to having a little more time to read, to blog, to see friends, to go to movies (I can't remember the last movie I saw in an actual theater).

My plan, my well intentioned plan, was to take a mini-vacation from this blog.  To not write.  To take the time I spend doing this, on something else.  But I miss it.  I miss sitting here having a conversation with... you.  Myself.  My future self.  Who knows.  But I know I miss it.  The blank page that I get to create.  The clickety clack of the keys as I type my thoughts and then the click, click click, of deleting an entire sentence or two.

I think I may start to do a series I found on another blog.  It's a list of 30 topics that you write on.  Just so I don't have to rack my brain too hard trying to come up with something out of thin air.  And it's kind of a fun idea.  

For now, I'm going to sign off.  Head home from the cafe that I have holed myself up in for hours at a time for the last couple months (it's my homework haven).  And take a night to relax.  Well, that's the goal at least.

Remember life is short.  So think about your dreams a little harder.  
Reach a little higher.  Laugh a little louder.  Love a little stronger.  
Because many things in life can wait... The Sunset Won't!

  1. I took a vacation from blogging, too. Only mine lasted about a year and a half. It's okay to do that. Life is the reason we write -- not the other way around.

    And no matter how long the vacation lasts, we tend to return with renewed vigor and energy and determination. And that's always a good thing!


Life is busy, thanks for taking a moment to leave a note!
