What a week.
For the most part I spent it in PJs with cups of coffee and lots of junk food, staring at a laptop for what seemed like an eternity.
Normally, my laptop and I are great friends. We watch movies, write bog posts and stories and generally have a whale of a time but there is something about being forced to stare at her glossy screen and do my actual day job that has made my fingers tingle with thoughts of her untimely death as she plummets to the ground from my bedroom window. I know none of us signed up for this but I REALLY didn’t sign up for this, in fact I ran away from every job that smelled like there was the prospect of being on a computer all day.
I like interacting with my school babies, where I can see their expressions, make jokes and get an actual reaction from them. You can tell I’m a teacher as most of my jokes are aimed at those under 11 so when I test them out on adults I’m met with raised eyebrows and concerned side glances. Oh how I miss laughter!
This week, after the 9 to eternity job, I’ve spend some time writing on paper. Call me a weirdo but there’s something quite erotic about holding a pen and watching it slide across the page caressing it with poetry and art. As well as keeping an eye on my books, I’ve been working on a lot of poetry, mostly focusing on the complexities of love.
A funny old thing is love. Apparently we learn it from our parents, therefore, I’m doomed (I joke) but that’s a story for another day. I did manage to get up and put on an outfit or two, so you lucky lot don’t have to be forced to see me slob out and instead get to look at me acting as though I actually have somewhere to go.
With valentine’s day coming, I’m definitely considering dressing up for the occasion, celebrating the fact that I love myself enough that valentine or not I’m going to celebrate me. I know it can be a time where some single people feel lonely and unloved, I’ve been in that position myself at times but trust me, doing something special for yourself or even for a friend, will help you feel so much better. Besides it’s one day out of the whole year and I can almost guarantee you will have many other times when people will show you how much they love you. Just in case you don’t, know that I have love for you just because you stopped by and took the time to read my post to the end.
