|01:32 pm - TIME|
It is really quite difficult to just step back and see how things are going in your life. I like to think that I'm so busy because I am doing so much good. But who really knows if that is true. It seems that I am just busy all the time. I don't exactly know if that is a really good thing. I like being busy with things, but seems like I don't have the time to enjoy things as much. I think I was less busy while I was in school. It seems that I am just running all the time. I need to work on that I guess. Trying to allow some down time, yesterday I did do a little beading. After dinner I just ran out of the energy to finish anything though.
This week I will work on not being so busy. I will work on enjoying each minute of my life. Because each day takes me closer to the end. I need to make the most of each day I have, for that very reason.

|08:57 am - Writer's Block: The final frontier|
If you could only visit one Web site (other than LiveJournal) for the rest of your life, which would you choose, and why?
Well, I don't really think that I could live without my email. Email is how I keep track of all my friends. That is how I write to people all over the country. I actually could track my email to a computer program. But I like my gmail inbox. So, I possibly could live without gmail.com. Although. If you really think about it. All of the google sites are one site. Can I say that I couldn't live without Google. Google gets me where I need to be.

Quality computer time is keeping me somewhat busy, getting to know my computer is interesting. Not much has changed since the last time I had a mac, which I believe was in middle school. Things are going well though. OS X has been very friendly to me. Switching off of a Windows platform is very refreshing, therapeutic. What is nice is that I never really have to go back. Although I do use a Windows computer at work. There aren't really any problems there though. Things run fairly well.
All that is needed is a name for this lovely little thing. My iPod is iZabel, like Isabel, but with a Z, because then I can call her iZ. I'm not quite sure what to name my little computer. I guess that a name will come to me. At some time. Anyway. It is very nice to have a little computer that works when I need it. Reliability is all that I ask for.

|10:05 am - Writer's Block: Traveling Companions|
What gadgets do you travel with when you’re going on a relaxing vacation? Do the gadgets you choose to bring tend to help you relax or keep you so plugged in that it’s hard to unwind?
My gadgets are usually the things that relax me. I have no problem with not having any gadgets though. I book and a quite place are all I need to relax. I like to have my computer and my iPod. My iPod for relaxing music and my computer so I can write. I love to write, and because my thoughts flow quicker than my hand can write I like to have a computer because I can keep up with my brain when I am typing. Sounds funny but it is definitely true.

Our lives are confusing. All the time really. Many times I have no idea what is going on. How do these day to day activities have any real matter in the world? In life? Where is this taking me? I don't know, and I guess that is what confuses me so much. We all have these lives. But why? What is the purpose of our going to work everyday? What is the purpose of so many of the things that we do? So many times we have to choose too. There are things that I would love to do, and there are so many things that I would love to spend my life doing. I would love to spend my life baking, writing, reading, knitting, sewing, drawing, painting, etc. Those things don't really get you anywhere though. Those things aren't "careers". Those things won't get me by. I guess what I mean is this. Why is money so important? Sure we kind of need it to live now a days, but why is there so much emphasis on how much money you have? Why can't you be happy with what you have? Maybe it is a little, maybe it is a lot. I don't know. But I just think there is far too much emphasis on whether or not you make a lot of money. Quality of life. Many people think that means that you have a great job, make a lot of money, and so on. I just don't think that makes sense. Quality of life is so different. Happiness makes quality of life. Being surrounded by the people that you love, and the people that love you.
|04:41 am - The Stress|
I wonder now. Replaying over and over again in my mind. Were all of my health problems just a stress problem? If they were, why did no one ever tell me? Why is it not until now that I finally am starting to feel better? I'm speaking mainly of my skin problems. I've had them since the 5th grade. They just were something that everyone said was a natural part of being a teenager. But what if they were all wrong? Maybe it had absolutely nothing to do with being a teenager and everything to do with the fact that I made everything so stressful on myself, or perhaps it was that everyone else made things so stressful for me.
I've been out of school for a mere two days. Already my skin is a clear as it has ever been. Those scars may never go away. They will likely remind me of what things were like for the rest of my life. But I now wonder if this is what things will be like from here on out? Just happier and better. No huge worries, and no more red faces to remind me of how stressed I really am?

|02:59 pm - Writer's Block: Do-over!|
If you were given a life do-over card, would you keep it or give it to a friend? If you kept it, would you prefer to be born to the same or different parents? Would you want to keep your memories?
What do I say to that? I don't think that I would do things all over again. There is so much that I am happy with, and not so much that I am unhappy with. Sure there are some things in my past that I probably would rather have not lived through. But, things are good where I am right now. I think they will be good in the years to come too, and I don't want to do all of that over again either. I just got done with school, why would I want to to start over.
When it comes to my past there is a lot of mystery. There are things that my parents just want to keep hidden and not tell me about, and that's okay, I just don't think, that a couple bad things in the past should make me want to do-over everything. The things in the past make us the people that we are. How do you know that if you do everything over things would be better, at least taht is if you weren't to keep your memories.
Well, at least that is what I think about it.
