I used to love doing this link-up. Well, not this one, specifically. But one of a same name and theme. I'm so glad someone else picked it up because I have some things to get off my chest.
:: I am registered to do a 10K this weekend. I'm really nervous about it for two reasons. One, I haven't run 6.2 miles in one stint since last June. Two, I work a six-hour shift at the brewery the previous evening. I'm afraid my legs will not be ready to run on Saturday morning.
:: I get annoyed when people insist that dogs are better than cats. I have nothing against dogs. Nothing at all. But I prefer cats. They fit my personality and lifestyle better. I also hate that there's a stigma attached to being a cat person. A woman who has multiple dogs is simply a dog owner. A woman who has multiple cats is a crazy cat lady. Why the double standard?!?
:: I hate dating. I'm not good at small talk and flirting. I'm better at meaningful conversations. So even though I would enjoy finding a good relationship, I abhor the process of getting there. It's a good thing I truly enjoy being single.
:: I pride myself on being a good friend and always being there for people when they need me. Lately, I've started to wonder if that's why God and the Universe have kept me single -- so I am always available and have the energy and affections to spend on my friends. Maybe that's my purpose in life.
:: My rent is increasing next month. It's ridiculous how much I pay for my 600 square feet of residence. It's definitely enough for a mortgage payment on a decent home. Unfortunately, I can't even really shop for a house until I get my other place sold. Hopefully that will happen later this spring. In the meantime, I've already started doing a preliminary search to see what's out there. It can't hurt, right?
