Hullo, ladies and gentlemen! HAPPY NEW YEAR! *fireworks display*
I hope everyone had a great time welcoming 2013. I know I did. And how is your New Year’s resolution going so far?
* frogs croaking *
Hmm…okay. I get it. Nevertheless, my New Year’s wish for y’all is that your 2013 be filled with abundance, joy, mistakes even, and cherished moments. Also, my New Year’s wish is for B&B to finally be restored to health and for its author to please, pretty please stop Facebooking a lot and start writing more instead.
Anyways, I’d like everybody to say hi to Crissy. She’s an old pal from my first ever job and the brain behind Me Time, a personal space that actually allows you to delve deeply into the silly corners of her mind. She answered the featured thought question (see below) in the form of a guest post – her Christmas present for me. Hence publishing this is my way of saying:
“Hey, Crissy, I may be the worst gift receiver in the whole wide world, but I like you so much and I think we have so many things in common that I actually mistook your TQ answer for mine and almost took ownership of it. Please forgive me. And thank you, thank you, thank you.”
Enough of the ickiness, I now give you Crissy.

I find it funny that the two perfect words came to me rather easily and it’s “lazily contemplative”. I guess I agree that this combination of the two words fits me quite well.
It is said that people who have high IQs have a hard time sleeping. Well, I don’t know if my IQ is that high, but I’m not the kind of person who just lies down and gets to sleep right away. I always need time to settle my brain into the idea that I should sleep now. Before that, my brain is always a chaotic mess of thoughts. It doesn’t help that I’m a worrier and I always take my worries around with me, even into bed. I just really have to make a conscious effort to stop thinking so that I can finally get some well-deserved sleep every night.
I just like letting my thoughts wander and take me to places that can be fun or horrid, depending on what my brain decides to latch on to. I like getting ideas for things to write, fandom-based or original. I always wonder about my friends and family and what they’re up to, looking forward to when I’ll see them next and what we’ll do. There are also a lot of things that I wish I could do, like learning how to speak Italian or fencing. A lot of the time, I end up thinking about my future and I start to worry. Until now, I feel like I still don’t know what to do with my life, what my purpose in this world is, and that gives me a lot of anxiety. I’m in my mid-20s. Shouldn’t I have figured things out by now? But I haven’t yet and to me that’s a big problem.
The component of being lazy comes in with the fact that I’m more of a thinker, not a doer. I have so many of these amazing, awesome ideas, but I hardly ever get to do them. I always get excited over new ideas, over possibilities, but I falter when it comes to actually doing something about them. The execution part almost always escapes me. In the end, I get distracted by the Internet or movies or books and I just never get around to doing what I wanted to, unless they involved one or all of the three. Imagine what I could have done with my life by now were I more active and assertive.
I really have to do something about this “lazily contemplative” thing.
