dream diary entries june 2020

faceless person with opened notebook with text on soft surface

monday, june 15, 2020 8:59a – I don’t remember my dreams already except I feel like we were on a houseboat at some point. thursday, june 18, 2020 8:38am – Disc golf course on a horseback lesson barn land, Reid played with others while I got a tour of an adjoining property with space for just a couple horses + the owner killed his old grey poodle-ish looking dog in front of me! After having his two horses do tricks in their stalls like bow. Then, we couldn’t find Reid’s disc golf bag or my change of clothes in the rows where people store bags while playing, and we had to escape the bad people killing dogs, so I ran to my friend from 3rd grade’s house in the […]

New Year, New Moon (New Me? Maybe, we’ll see…)

new moon tarot spread

Happy Astrological New Year and first New Moon in Aries! I’m about one week late for the new year and half a week for the new moon, but as I’m slowly but surely learning, late is better than never. It’s not too late, it’s never too late! Down with the procrastination!! (…my own personal patriarchy >_<) Anyways, I learned on the first Monday in January–as I was procrastinating doing a “2019 in Review” and setting goals for 2020–that the astrological new year is actually at the spring equinox on March 19th-21st (differs year to year depending on the day in terms of hours of daylight, and this year March 19th was the earliest it’s been since 1896!). I thought that was pretty perfect falling right after my birthday, so […]

I’m an addict: purpose & procrastination

passion led purpose

I wonder if there’s anyone else on the planet who ponders “life purpose” as much as I do. I think I’ve thought about it every single day since I was but a wee recruiter crying in my car en route to work back in 2016. Just to give a small piece of evidence for proof of how much I ruminate on finding my “purpose”, I currently have 39 iPhone notes that mention the word. That’s not even including how many times I’ve focused on it as the subject of my handwritten diary entries! Everyone says to just chase your passion and then you’ll end up finding/living your purpose. Well, it appears I’m passionate about… finding purpose. Reid always tells me that it’s at least better I’m asking all these […]

Hello December, you last month of the decade you!

amazeballs armchair

Oh boy, November flew by. So fast, indeed, that I almost allowed myself to forget about failing at Nanowrimo… almost. But we’re moving forward into December! Alas, what with winterizing and moving out of the RV, moving into our new apartment, a trip to Austin, family in town for Thanksgiving, and my ever-persistent self-sabotage and lack of discipline, I did not win Nanowrimo this year. Not even close. A far cry from 50k with my 10,808 words, but hey, those are ten thousand words I wouldn’t have otherwise. And, I’ve finally decided on my first writing project, after changing up my plan and outline about 13 times over the course of the week and a half I was actually really trying for Nanowrimo — I’m committing to writing a […]

The DMG Diary Method

journaling diary

I have kept a diary off-and-on for a decent portion of my life. Recently, as I was cleaning out some boxes my mom had saved for me of my grade school days, I came across journals from both at-school creative writing time and personal diaries. Reading through them was such a nostalgic and eye-opening experience that it solidified just how much I want to make keeping a diary a stable part of my daily routine for the rest of my life. I came up with this method after deciding what I want to focus on in my morning journaling routine, then picking and choosing from a few recommended routines of people I admire. I complete in this order (usually). It’s my initials, which makes it easy to remember for […]
