time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping...

Time 100% astounds me. Isn't it quite the phenomenon? I mean time is always changing. Even right now as I write this. I'm still writing it, still doing the same thing, yet time is still passing around me. Or even just thinking about what I was doing this morning, a few hours ago, even just a few seconds ago as I was typing earlier words to this post. I don't know if that made any sense at all to you, but it makes perfect sense in my head.

And don't even get me started on time travel, which I totally wish existed, because there are some pretty sweet moments in history that I'd like to go live. Or some times in my life that I wish could go back to, like that time when I got totally owned and didn't have a response. Well if time travel was real I could go back and give an awesome come back line and the recipient wouldn't even know what to do it was that cool.

Someone I know actually thinks that when you time travel you can't go back to a time before you were born. Which totally defeats the purpose of time travel if you ask me. Because it's real and all.

The one thing I do know about time travel is that JK Rowling is a time travel boss and I'm pretty sure she's the time travel guru.

So I've been thinking lately about time....and how I spend it and how I don't spend it.

This is usually how my day goes. I make a mental list of all the things I need to get done. Go to class, study, go to my internship, grocery shop, go to the gym, make a new playlist/routine for my cycling class, homework, etc.

Then when I get to the end of the day I realized that I've done oh, maybe, four of them. On a good day. So how on earth did I not do the rest? I mean that's not even that demanding of a list, considering I only have three classes this semester and I go to my internship three hours a day.

And then I remember.

Pinterest. Hulu. and everything like such as.

These things totally suck the life out of me and before I know if I've done nothing but pin 80 new recipes to my food board on pinterest. Or watched the latest episode of Modern Family on Hulu. Or longed for new cupcake cookbooks on . Because I need a new cupcake cookbook like I need a hole in my head.

If I were diligent I would make rules for myself. Like I can only go on pinterest for 30 minutes AFTER I've gone for at least a three mile run. Or I can watch Modern Family after I've done all of my homework. And there is really no justification for looking at more cupcake books on because I like my head the way it is. You know, without holes.


  1. awesome...

    And time travel -- well, you know.

  2. I think you should submit this to your newspaper as an article. Like a human interest column or something. Does your paper have such a thing?

  3. Our paper is totally stingy and they only let their precious regular journalists write. they only accept letters to the editor.

  4. Well, of coarse I think you right better then them.

    (written in my best editor writing)

  5. I limit myself to 1 page (1 total scroll down) on the DIY & CRAFT page. But yeah - lately Netflix has been my time sucker. I'm pretty awesome at knocking out entire series'. Yeah, not just seasons, I can crack down on a single season in about 4 days if I find a really comfy spot in my chair.

    -Oh, and those PB flavored taffys are called Mary Janes, and the worst idea ever was to make them Crunchy Peanut Butter flavor.
