I’m thinking about taking a 2-hour meditation class. It is next Saturday at 3PM. It costs $38. I need to get serious about meditation. I used to do a 12-minute meditation every morning, and then I changed my work schedule. To meditate, pray and do A Course in Miracles every morning I would have to get up at least 10 minutes earlier. I know that doesn’t sound like a lot, but I already get up at 4:50 AM.
I need to stop reading The Washington Post when I first get up, looking at the news, checking twitter for news, etc. Most of the time nothing is going on, so it takes about 5 minutes to check everything. However, some days there are big news stories overnight, and that leads me to read over what’s going on, and I go down the rabbit trail.
I’m getting frustrated easily especially when it comes to my part-time job. I just think (know?) meditation would help. I guess if I really believed in meditation, I would do it. I would dedicate myself to a practice. I could be working right now, but I’m so frustrated. &*$%.
For the first time, I’m really nervous about the Virginia governor race. I have to remove myself from the results. I just can’t get too emotionally involved. I thought Northam would win for sure about 2 weeks ago. Now I think Gillespie will win. 😦 Major bummer. Everyone is watching this race. This is the most important election on election day and blah, blah, blah. Virginia, you are blue or maybe purple. You are not red. Don’t go back due to scary racist commercials.
This week I…
Music of the week (my top 8): Pink, Demi Lovato, Joan Osborne, Aretha Franklin, Lea Michele, Coldplay, Ke$ha, Kelly Clarkson
TV of the week: Grey’s Anatomy, basketball
The NBA is back!! College basketball will be back soon. Yay!
Movie of the week: Nocturnal Animals. I’m not sure how I feel about this movie. It is supposed to be a thriller. I don’t think I enjoyed it as much as everyone else did. I’m not a big Jake Gyllenhaal fan. I like Amy Adams, but not in this. Blah. It was average, I guess.
Podcasts of the week: True Crime Garage, The Jess Lively Show
I need to listen to more podcasts during the day. I listen at night and then fall asleep during the episode, and I have to listen all over again.
Books of the week: It should say ‘book’ of the week. I’m really focused on finishing The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. I’m not sure what I’m going to read next. I have a few books on hold from the library.
Planner update: Plans of the week in my Erin Condren (coming on Sunday)
Plans for the Weekend: Grocery shopping, working, and school work. Do I sound like a broken record or what? This is what I do on most weekends. It’s going to be nice this weekend. That should be a good thing, but that means more dogs at the park. Last weekend, the same unleashed dog came up to me and my dog 3 times!! It is illegal to have an unleashed dog at this park, btw. Anyway…I’m kind of looking forward to it getting cool so fewer people will be there. Only the park would make me say that.
So I can miss Mr. Stalker, and due to seeing fewer people at the park, I now go to the park during my lunch break. I don’t like it because I can’t linger when the park is almost empty or on a nice day. I have to get back to work, so it feels almost like a chore. It’s not as fun. But I do feel blessed to live so close to the park. I would never drive to the park every day…not even for my dog. lol.
Thanks for reading. Have a marvelous weekend. 😉
