Charlie Time

February 05, 2011 | 04:31 am

I've been waking up in the middle of the night and deciding to not go back to sleep. I find myself on the couch watching TV or in my office surfing the net -- essentially, enjoying some quiet time... "Charlie time".

I catch up on things I've recorded or finally read Facebook.

Things have been so busy lately, I haven't felt like I've had enough downtime. So, I suppose I cut into my sleep in order to make it happen.

Yes, I'm tired. But, I don't seem to mind.

Oh, How I've Missed You!

January 23, 2011 | 11:03 am

I haven't posted in a little over 6 months and I can't remember the last time I read my friends' entries. I've missed it, actually.

Facebook has sort of taken my attention in terms of being a social outlet, but I missed the blog aspect. I need a place to share my thoughts, experiences and random conversation-starters; it's time I try LJ again.

Yeah, I realize I "came back" last year for about 2 posts and then left again. Shit. I hope this time it lasts longer.

There are many of my LJ friends who aren't on Facebook or we haven't connected there yet. I miss them. Another good reason to come back.

So much has been going on, including a wickedly cool new job, a wonderful boyfriend and the prospect of moving later this year. Much more about that soon. For now, a simply declaration of my return.

Friendship

June 09, 2010 | 11:29 am

I was reminded last night that there's more to friendship than just a label. Despite being friends for many years, sometimes people drift apart and lose the connection that once brought them together.

Also, it's OK to end a friendship when the nuturing isn't reciprocal.

I actually feel better today about it all.

So Much for Being "Back"

June 08, 2010 | 11:51 pm

I haven't really posted anything since May 23 -- the day after I had announced my return to LJ.

Fuck.

I read blogs all the time and really do want to post more. I suppose I just don't make the time for anything substantial. I tend to post trivial short status updates on Facebook instead.

I'm at a place where I could really use the outlet, so I must get better.

Anyway, it's almost Wednesday. Hump day.

Goodnight, all.

Sunday Morning

May 23, 2010 | 10:53 am

I'm thinking of the best way to spend my day. I definitely need to go grocery shopping and vacuum. Beyond that, no idea.

Feels good to be writing an LJ entry. Granted, I posted something last night, but it didn't take a lot of thought. I spent some time this morning reading my friends' entries and trying to catch up with what has been going on. Seeing many of your posts made me realize how much I had missed our LJ connection.

Oops. One more must do -- I would really like to finish the audiobook I started last night. I should really force myself to sit down and finish it.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday.
