season 2 Day 55

I think I just had a full blown panic attack.
Ever have one of those days when life is going along smooth and then suddenly some small thing just booms up out?  Total rock bottom roller coaster emotions.  Yeah it was one of those days.  And again, it had to do with the internet.  I'm starting to hate the web in general.

So sitting here now, a cup of earl grey tea and just had some chocolate cake. Still feeling slightly out of sorts but it's a nice day outside here.

Hoping to get to the cinema next week when our city starts the matinees for spring break. 

hope everyone is having a relaxing day

Well, I'm really disappointed today.
Had a scheduled book club, in which I had 3 new members.  None of which showed up.  I'm really beginning to think I'm cursed with this.

Seriously, not sure what I'm doing wrong?  When others pick the selection, no one bothers to read it, when I pick the selection, no one bothers to read it.  Nor does anyone seem to bother letting me know they can't make it either.

Totally sucks.

I keep saying I'm never going to do this again if it fails this meeting.  Then, I always end up giving it another try because I get new people messaging me telling me they are interested.  It's a vicious cycle.

This time I think it was the book itself.  We were reading American Psycho, and even I found it extreme.

Seson 2 Day 53

I was just hanging out on a scrapbooking site, and I've noticed before a common project title.   "project life"   which seems to be done in weeks.
So I started to flip through some of the pieces people have done and even went looking elsewhere online to see their versions on blogs and in videos.

I really like this idea. 
They take a photo a day for a year and scrapbook it. 

I've wanted to do something similar, but at the moment I don't have a colour printer.  When I bought my current printer, I was only thinking about using it for my writing, and sadly it's only a black ink.

Every so often I come across some really creative and beautiful scrapbook pages and ideas.  Today, my hat's off to those who are in the process of creating a 365 Scrapbook

Season 2 Day 52

Short note, getting ready to go for groceries in a few minutes.
Is it just me, or when you have something planned for the day no matter what it might be, that's always when things go wrong in your schedule/routine?   It never seems to fail that every time I've got something to do outside of the apartment, those are the days I have to deal with people knocking on my door, email or internet issues, etc.

At the moment the weather seems to be okay, so here's hoping it holds out for another few hours while I'm out.

And with tomorrow being Valentine's Day, just wanted to say to everyone hope it's a good one for you.

season 2 Day 51

It's been about a week since I checked in on this blog.
This was always meant to be the drama free blog.  So, I suppose not having much to rant about is a good thing.

The vampire challenge is not going as smoothly as I was expecting it to. It just seems that last year's one movie a day challenge, even with all it's faults moved along better.
That makes me a bit sad.

It's funny how we end up living our lives on the internet.  Here I have something- the challenge- which last year was originally meant to be blog only and it expanded to a scrapbook, and changed how I viewed my life, how I interacted with my family, how I planned my day.   And this year's  challenge, which is meant to be more offline, has fallen into a giant crack.  None of the secondary projects connected to the vampire challenge are working proper.

It's all making me think I should go back to the idea of the original challenge.

But anyways, that's where my head is right now. Somewhere between a life online and one in the real world.

till later
