The Last Five Weeks

“I don’t know where the time goes!”

My Grandmother used to say this when she forgot something.  I used to roll my eyes at her when she used this excuse for forgetting to call me on my birthday but now, I know what she meant.  Keeping track of time sucks and is rather time-consuming. 
So here’s what I’ve been up to since my last post about 5 weeks ago(!):
Week 1
Worked + finished eating/drinking what was leftover in the fridge from the holidays + crying over my dog a lot (the holidays were a harsh reminder of his absence)
Week 2
Worked + had a birthday that I tried to forget but EVERYONE remembered it this year! I hate people
Week 3
Worked in San Francisco (ok so I worked a bit and mostly shopped) + met a bunch of boring people at a conference
Week 4
Worked + Worked harder to catch up on all the emails/issues I missed from the week before + started up on my French lessons...again + rediscovered a French song that I used to listen to over and over again--it's still so awesome

Week 5
Worked + trying my absolute best to finish up seeing all the movies nominated for an Oscar (pathetic I know but it’s a habit I can’t break)

Notice that writing was not on this list?  It's because I haven't touched my novel in ages....
The Writer's Block is back for awhile but will eventually leave again, once I finish kicking the shit out of it.

That's okay if you haven't gotten around to your novel. At least you were able to shop and watch movies!

That's so cool that you're taking French lessons. I didn't appreciate studying French enough when I was at school. I've been thinking about relearning it. It's a beautiful language.

The only film nominated for an Oscar that I really want to see is The King's Speech. I really really want to see that and haven't yet had a chance.
