I am like a little old lady who is reheating the coffee and calling people on the phone for a Sunday afternoon chat. Before you know it I’ll be doing crossword puzzles, ironing sheets, and crocheting Christmas gifts which is actually not a bad idea as I have always wanted to learn how to crochet. But right now I am so ridiculously bored I am crawling out of my skin. I am probably the only person to complain about being well-rested. More like restless. I have already worked out, read a book, went on a walk, cooked food, watched a movie, had a two and a half hour Skype call, and obviously rang practically everyone in my contact list. It has been a long time where Sunday felt this way. So terrible. So lonely. So damn boring.

Around the end of every semester I start to get reallllly bored of things being so serious. I just want to talk about The Real Housewives and boys and shopping and anything superficial. Well now I have found I am so sick of talking about love and relationships and connections and why why “why is he/she doing this wahhh!” Ugh! If I have to sit and analyze any more of this bullshit, I am going to go insane. Maybe this is a good thing. Maybe boredom is the solution to moving on for real. Because now I find I can’t wait for intellectual stimulation which is a good place to be right before school is about to start. Yes, please feed my brain, it is starving! Bombard me with HBR and CSR and NPR. Send me a subscription of The Economist and take away my Us Weekly! Sigh. Why is life so complicated?
Someone once told me that with each new season you should write a new set of goals so I always do. And surprisingly, I follow this list,
usually without intention. But today I read the list I created for summer and I haven’t done shit. This summer has been a sucky, bunkass, depressing time. Fuck this summer!
With each new season comes a new experience. Going into fall I will have to say my goals are the following:
1) Get enough sleep.
2) Drink plenty of water.
3) Do not leave the city with an empty tank of gas.
4) Do whatever it takes to be focused and disciplined. In other words, no distractions.
5) Stop being so hard on yourself and love yourself the way you love others.
All seems so basic, but trust me, life gets complicated. It is easy to forget to do what should feel so simple.
