Does anyone else remember the days that you could stay out all hours of the night and still manage to function normally the next day?? I don't know how on earth I was ever able to stay up until 2-3am, wake up at 7:00, bounce out of bed, get to school on time and feel rested & energized. I miss that. Just think of ALL the things I could accomplish in the day if I still had that kind of energy day in & day out.
2. Listening to music.
Music used to be my therapy. If I was feeling sad, overwhelmed, frustrated, or just straight up pissed off, I could always count on music to help me sort it all out. And now the only music I hear is twinkle twinkle little star or the wheels on the bus.
3. Sitting in a quiet room just to think.I know this sounds like a complete waste of time, but who else used to just sit on their rear and do absolutely nothing and savor every single minute? And if I felt like it, I'd think. Pre-kids, heck, pre-marriage... I would just sit there and contemplate crap. I miss having time to just think, and actually hear my own thoughts. These days, the only time I have to sit around and savor quiet time, is when I'm getting ready for bed. And at this point, I'm just too tired to even make sense of my thoughts.
4. Writing hand-written letters.Remember passing notes in high school? Or actually writing a letter to a friend that moved away? Or... PenPals?? How cool were they? I mean, I love e-mail & texting and all the other cool technology we have at our finger tips. But there really is something to be said about hand-written notes and letters.
5. Actually talking on the phone.Okay I'll be honest, *most* of the time, I don't like talking on the phone. But sometimes? Sometimes is so nice to actually hear someones voice as opposed to reading written words through e-mail or text. I suppose this kind of goes along with #3. In this day & age, technology is making it too way easy to make things less personal.
Happy Friday everyone :)
