You Just Haven't Figured It Out Yet

So, a friend of mine on facebook has been sharing fun facts about himself the last couple days. I don't know if anyone even sees this in passing, but I felt the need to toss a few of mine up on the internets.

1. My absolute favorite movie, EVER, is Disney's Beauty and the Beast
2. I've always dreamed of living in another era
3. I can think myself into an unconscious void
4. Four is my favorite number
5. I have never claimed a religion
6. That being said, many people have told me my beliefs follow several ideals of eastern religions such as Buddhism, Taoism, and Hare Krsna. (yes, I know the accents and spelling of that is wrong, but I'm tired.)
7. The most important person in my life is my mom.
8. I still have most of my barbies, and I always wander down that pink aisle at the store.
9. I have a tendency to speak to myself in 'lolspeak'
10. I have an affinity for lesser used letters (Q, Z, X, K, J, B)
11. Love frightens me
12. I am a suicide attempt survivor
13. Bob Ross influences my artwork significantly.
14. I have a nervous tic where I pick at anything and everything(nails, ears, nose, scalp, scabs, paint, fabric embellishments)
15. I am quite a loner, and enjoy my solitude
16.  My earliest memory is of meeting my grandfather in January of 1991 (when I was 5 months old)
17. I aspire to write a book in my life
18. I do not like myself at all from the neck down
19. When I have story ideas in my mind, I record it in a combination of drawing and acting out dialogues by myself
20. I fall into accents easily, and am very believable

In All My Dreams I Drown

Well, it's been quite a while.
Not only for this blog, but for my physical pen-to-paper journal. Looking at it, the last entry is dated April 29, 2012. It's now nearly four months later.

Bad Sarah.

I hope to get back into this blog or resume writing in my journal, even if some of the entries are negative or rant-like. Because really, weren't blogs and journals initially created to record feelings and thoughts of the day? I'm not sure, that's how I've always viewed them. My first journal entry was in a Harry Potter hardbound journal in April of 2001. With the exception of my senior year of high school (where I DID write at least once a week), I have faithfully jotted down at least something for each day. I contribute it to my exceptional memory. The fact that I have fallen off the bandwagon may have something to do with why I feel like my brain is turning to mush.

Look at that, I've written more in the last ten minutes than I have in probably the last ten weeks. The majority of my writing comes in the form of filling in crosswords, and my typing from searching Sims 3 Mods or entering cheat codes.

I'll see you soon.
