Sometimes I...

Sometimes I am shocked by my own mood swings. A few times this week I've gone from high highs to crashing lows.

Sometimes I get comepletely ahead of myself, regardless of telling myself over and over I'm going to take things one step at a time.

Sometimes I buy fun kitchen gadgets like this, as a way to get myself to eat more apples; then throw it across the kitchen when I cut my hand on it.

Sometimes I need to freak out (complete with the ugly cry) to reach a new level of understanding.

Sometimes I become indescribably proud when my little cousin sends me text messages telling me about her new found love of reading and the books she's been devouring.
 
Sometimes I have to have heart to hearts with my best friends because they "get me" in ways that other people don't.

Sometimes I am required to face some hard truths about myself, even if I don't want to, its only then that I discover what really makes me me.

Sometimes I want to cut my hair off into a real style but I know myself well enough to know that I would get tired of it after a week. I have commitment issues.

Sometimes I have to step away from everything in order to find my balance.

Sometimes I make my head hurt from thinking so hard; then I take a nap.

Sometimes I clearly define what it is I want for my life and become really excited about making it happen.

Sometimes I become so obsessed with Criminal Minds that I watch it three nights in a row on a channel that shows 4 episodes a night.

Sometimes I stay up until 2AM watching this show and then sleep with the light on because it scares the crap out me.

Sometimes I am so thankful for my friends who listen to my crazy rants, jumbled ramblings, and incoherent thoughts that I don't know how I'll ever repay them.

Sometimes I actually get excited about the prospect of being snowed in for the entire weekend.

Your turn, fill in the blank. Sometimes I _________________________________.

Sometimes I just want to pack it all up and run away! But then I go have a latte and read a book and I am ok. Great post. I can relate to at least half! =D

Sometimes I wish I could pile all my blog friends together in one room and feel happy about us finally meeting and knowing each other.

My mood swings shock me as well. Exercise and Vitamin B seems to help.

Sometimes I need weekends where I am a completely hermit and say no to all social plans so I can recharge my battery.

Sometimes I feel guilty saying no to these social plans.

Sometimes I have to remind myself that the job I have is what I wanted so badly while working on getting my MBA.

Sometimes ice cream at the end of the days is so therapeutic.

Sometimes I want to sell all my possession and move to France!

Sometimes I wonder if it would be better, easier, safer to just move home after graduation.

Sometimes I get really freaked out about the possibility of being in a long-distance relationship for another year or longer.

Sometimes I feel so alone down here and I wish I had a close group of girlfriends to depend on.

Sometimes I just want to stay in bed all day long.

Sometimes I am thankful for cold rainy days so I can stay inside with my kids, do art projects, watch movies and make soup.

You know that's why they're your besties ... because they do get you and you can have those heart-to-hearts. =)

OK, my turn.

Sometimes I wish I had gobs of money, so I could cut my hair into a funky, shorter do ... and then add extensions once I get sick of the lack of length.

I'm gonna echo quarter-life lady's:

"Sometimes I wish I could pile all my blog friends together in one room and feel happy about us finally meeting and knowing each other."

YES and YES.

Sometimes I wish I could just run away and start over where no one knows me at all...

Sometimes I can't stop myself from picturing the worst case scenario: like what I would do if the house is broken into, or what might happen if ghosts are real and also downstairs right now.

Sometimes I dream about putting things on hold to go chase a big adventure and then come back to my life and see what I would do different.

Sometimes I wish I could make whatever tasty food I want appear magically on my plate.

I totally hear you on the mood swings!

Great post.

"Sometimes I need to freak out (complete with the ugly cry) to reach a new level of understanding" has been the story of my life! If I hadn't gone through such PLUMETTING lows, I never would've been motivated to make major life changes to get to where I wanted to be.

Sometimes I read way too much into things and fall into old habits of self-deprecating thoughts. Sometimes I get way more excited than everyone else I know, or way too upset. People tell me "evening out" their emotions has done them the world of good - not being so high or low, and staying close to the middle - but I'm not like that. The lows serve as lessons to learn from, and I wouldn't trade the highs for anything :)

Sometimes I think about how different my life would be if I'd made different choices back in high school. Sometimes I think that I might've had a better life.

amanda said...

sometimes i wonder if i'll ever feel grown up.

sometimes i wear a smile even when i don't feel like smiling.

sometimes i jump on the bed.

*ps, i am the same way with svu as you are with criminal minds. i can't get enough-but than i get so creeped out!

Sometimes I think I need more people in my life.

Sometimes I think I'm not such a great friend, daughter, sister.

Sometimes I think I could eat pizza and only pizza for every meal for the rest of my life.
