P3 Project: Day 186 of 1400 - Family Ties

This post is one of the few that will be dedicated to anyone. In this instance, this post is dedicated to my family who through thick and thin, with all of the things that happen, continue to show me that the ties that bind aren't always physical. Sometimes, they are simply digital.

P3 Project: Day 180 of 1400 - Sail

"Maybe I should cry for help. | Maybe I should kill myself | Blame it on my A.D.D, baby. | Maybe I'm a different breed | Maybe I'm not listening | So blame it on my A.D.D, baby..."

I wake up in the morning with my brain in a haze, like I was thinking in mud. After laying there for a few moments, my "higher functions" kick on. First, priorities, then personality. Next thing to turn on is logic, then finally reason. I roll over and look at the time. I have two hours to get from where I am to where I need to be. "That's an eternity..." I tell myself and hit the snooze button on my alarm.

"Obviously, I had miscalculated some things..."

P3 Project: Day 177 of 1400 - Birthday Wishes

So, this weekend served to prove that a group of complete strangers can begin to forge the bonds of friendship and that sometimes, your friends are the only family you have. Or rather, better family than the one you get dealt. I spent this weekend doing absolutely nothing that was for me. Clothing shopping with Seth and Sarah, birthday party for Nathaniel, church to watch Tiffany perform, and all of these activities were done happily because these people are my family. They have their moments, not unlike a real family but we were all happy to spend time together.

If only I wasn't distracted with the upcoming week, I may have even enjoyed the festivities more. But as I celebrated my nephew's seventh birthday, I couldn't help but think about my own birthday wishes that were going to be fulfilled in the next week. And it still scares the hell out of me.

P3 Project: Day 172 of 1400 - Playing Catch-Up

It's very rare that we as people get the time to sit back and enjoy the little things. I find myself doing that more and more as time goes on. Take this weekend, for example. It was Labor Day weekend which meant an extra day doing... whatever it is that I do with an extra day on my weekend. As there isn't a lot to do in my apartment (which I still haven't blogged about, I know) I figured that I'd sit back and enjoy some time with the family.

My other family, y'know the one with the video game in the name? Well, this weekend went a little different than usual.

Come inside, it's starting to get cold. I'll tell you all about it...
