1. This is my favorite aspect of the blogging world: that all posts do not have to be as neat and tidy as essays.

2. I gained some weight over the holidays.

3. The reckless intake of sugar may have started around Halloween.

4. I’m trying to be okay with it, because I know my body will shed the extra weight as I get more active and eat better again, but it stinks when your pants are too tight.

5. I decided to change my meds a little bit, and so far I’m not seeing any difference in how I feel. Who knew plateauing was possible?

6. I woke up this morning feeling kind of discouraged, like I really had nothing to look forward to.

7. I hate that.

8. I bought a new laptop for myself for Christmas, although my family had donated to the fund.

9. It is lightening fast, and has a beautiful display.

10. I am enamored by it. I may give it a name.

11. But I probably shouldn’t become too attached.

12. Computers have minds of their own.

13. I may give my old one to my mother, but I wonder if that will cause problems.

14. She’ll want internet access, and she can’t afford it. She’ll want a Facebook account. She’ll try internet dating again. She’ll spend hours in front of the screen and believe everything she reads. She’ll end up complaining about all of the things the old computer can’t do.

15. Speaking of money matters, I may have exceeded my budget in the month of December.

16. It wasn’t from buying the laptop, because I saved for that. It was because I bought presents for all of my nieces and nephews.

17. And I really had a good time doing it.

18. Internet shopping ROCKS.

19. I only wish I could have seen all of their faces as they received them.

20. But I got to see some of the faces, and that was awesome.

21. I love when a quote you read turns on a light in your head. It’s amazing.

22. Work has been pretty monotonous.

23. But more companies seem to be spending money again.

24. I love the month of January. I love how motivated everyone is.

25. I wish that newness would last longer.

26. I need to come up with something I can look forward to.
