not going to hit rock bottom

Countdown:

16 days until my certification exam (!!!!!)

365+ days until my Kripalu trip (LOL)

I don’t think I’m voting in our governor’s primary race in a few weeks. Both of the candidates are okay. Just okay. The one who considers himself a progressive voted for George W. Bush twice! Bush invaded Iraq for no reason and got us into this mess we are in now with Isis. I was going to vote for him until I found that out. And the other guy has an unrealistic political agenda. So I’ll just let other people decide. I will vote for the Democrat in November, of course. But count me out of the primary. I don’t care passionately enough for either person.

The following might sound crazy, but I’m thrilled! I just signed up (and was approved!) for Venture One’s (Captial One) credit card. I only did it for Kripalu. I need miles to cut my costs in half. I need about 100,000 miles for the flight. Sad, but true. I think I can get that as long as I use my card for all groceries, gas, and some recurring bills. I will pay this card off every month. I won’t use it for stuff I can’t afford. I can’t wait to get my card. I need to start earning miles ASAP. I need to get to Stockbridge, MA next summer.

I probably have more than a year to earn miles. I don’t know exactly when Gabby’s going to be there and if she’s not there in 2018 for whatever reason, I’ll just find a yoga retreat or another class to do instead at Kripalu. I have a feeling she’s going to be pregnant next summer and not do Kripalu. That would be great for her. I know she really wants to become a mom.

I wonder would they pay for the room and board. Hmmm. I don’t know enough about “miles” for that. It isn’t considered a hotel so…but it is room and board. As long as it covers my flight, I’m good. 🙂

One thing I’ve noticed since I started praying regularly, is that sometimes I feel unworthy of what I’m praying for or I feel like the Universe/God doesn’t care. Who am I to ask for this when Sally doesn’t have one? That’s probably why I didn’t pray much before. I’ve always prayed off and on to the Universe. But now I pray daily, and I try to pray throughout the day. The truth is, I still don’t feel like anyone or anything is with me all the time.

I’m hoping that working through A Course in Miracles will change this. I’m on lesson 18 out of 365, and so far I’m enjoying it. However, it is very different than anything I’ve ever done.

This week I…

Music of the week: Amos Lee, Paramore, John Mayer, Alana Davis, Carly Rae Jepsen, Jojo, Myzica, Rachael Yamagata

I got a new cellphone. I’m an android girl and believe it or not, my last phone did not have a place for an SD card. I was pissed when I got home and found out I couldn’t put 1/10th of my music on there. I wrongly assumed that most phones had SD card slots. This time I made sure to get a phone with space for an SD card. Well, I spent spurts of this past week putting only the music I LOVE on my phone. It took forever to go through each song on my computer. It came up to 8GB of music. Not too bad. I have about 32 GB of music on my computer, and I bought a 32GB SD card, but I didn’t want songs I only like on there. I want to be able to shuffle my music and love every song.

Anyway, I now have 1,791 of my favorite songs with me at all times. The point of this story is that I love music and I will always have my fave music with me. Music is my life! 😉 Also, if you like pop music, the Paramore album is pretty good. I love pop. Obvs.

TV of the week: House of Cards, NBA Finals, French Open

I’m not rooting for anyone in the finals. I don’t hate or love LeBron or Steph Curry.

Movie of the week: I might watch Moonlight this weekend or definitely by next week.

Books of the week: I have so many books on hold at the library. I can only hold 2 more books. None of them are coming in yet, so I started Tears to Triumph: The Spiritual Journey from Suffering to Enlightenment by Marianne Williamson.

Still reading: A Course in Miracles and  A Course in Miracles Made Easy: Mastering the Journey From Fear to Love by Alan Cohen.

Planner update: Plans of the week in my Erin Condren

Plans for the Weekend: Hopefully I will be studying. That’s the plan. I have to go to two libraries on Saturday. I might study at one of the libraries, but I’ve never studied at a library on a Saturday so I don’t know how crowded it will be. I would love to reserve a study room and study for a couple of hours. That sounds like a good idea. I might do that.

Thanks for reading. Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
