Creature Feature....

I. Am... A Starbucks whore. There I said it. Have some bad news to tell me? Soften the blow with a Caramel Frapp. Good news? Punctuate it with the same. Early morning or late night? Sounds like a good reason to go get my Starbucks on.

More than that though, I am very much a creature of habit. When I go get my coffee, I go to a specific shop and I order it a specific way and I take a very specific driving path to and from said shop. I do that with everything. I have 2 paths to and from work that are only slightly different from each other with respects to traffic patterns. I hate being a passenger to any of the places I usually take myself because I cannot stand the variation it brings when I go "not my way". OCD? Probably. I like to call it Extreme Bossiness though. ;)

So this morning I had a couple of cancellations and instead of filling them I decided to be productive. Unless you call a bit of self analyzing productive (which I do, just not work productive) I failed. I had an awesome T/W of being able to cross everything off my to-do list so I didn't feel the immense pressure I usually feel to "catch up" so I decided to treat myself to breakfast. NOT at Starbucks. I decided to go to Einstein Bagel. Yes it was only like half a block away from my usual coffee shop and not even 500 feet from my back up coffee shop, but still, variety. (Also, yes, I have a backup coffee shop, don't poke fun at my crazy.)

I'm doing this whole decide the things I like about my life and ditch the rest process and as much as I enjoy the comfort of my systems, I don't really like the crazy I feel when I deviate. Today was a nice change, and yes it would have been extremely easy to go to Starbucks and get my frapp, but by going somewhere else I ended up having a fantastic breakfast and a non-caramel coffee that was also amazing.

These next handful of months are going to be bringing some MASSIVE changes into every aspect of my life, and I'm nervously excited. Giddy almost. I'm starting this whole process as a caterpillar and I don't see the end result being a beautiful butterfly, but a moth with some kick@ss wing designs? Hopefully.

A Little Blasphemy as a Literal (and Figurative) Sign of Progress

 Hello there, it’s been a while, and in true returning from ghosting fashion, I am here to either share something vapid and meaningless, or ...
