Writer's Block: Breaking the bad

What’s a bad habit that you really need to quit?

My bad habit is going to bed late. So at night I can sleep just about 5-6 hours usually. Next day I fill the rest of my night sleeping at day. And how I think, it's really not good...

Day journal:
I have a rest today. I was sleeping until 12. It's a pity that I didn't find time for walking today, so I was at home almost all the day except maybe 5 minutes when I was throwing out trash. I have done many exercises for english. I have watched movies on TV such as Pirates of the Caribean and Ironman. I want to go to bed early today because tomorrow I have to wake up at 7:30. So, good night.

What is your biggest regret? Did you learn from it or does it still plague you?

I thought about this just a few days ago, and spent two hours thinking about it. So that this question came up so soon is amusing.

Biggest regret is probably the way I've wasted so much of my time, these last seven years. I could have gotten things done and made something of myself in that time. But I spent it so wrapped up in my head, trapped there with S, that I did less than nothing.

In some ways, I've learned form it. I've certainly figured a few things out. I'm still working on it, but I'm getting better about it. And yes, it does still plague me, though more at some times than others.

любоваться собой.  Замечаю, что любуюсь собой слишком часто. Пою-ой как же я красиво пою. Работаю-как же у меня замечательно получается. Доходит до страшно-нелепого-реанимируя пациента, хвалю себя мысленно и заботюсь при этом произвести на окружающих меня хорошее впечатление.    Мысли об умирающем  конкурируют, но не затмевают это самолюбование. Страшно? Реально.

What is your biggest regret? Did you learn from it or does it still plague you?

My biggest regret would most likely have to be how I let people take advantage of me. I know that it doesn't really sound like too big of a deal, but because of the fact that I would do everything to help them out, I let myself get hurt. Not only that, but I was also selfish too, because I wanted those people to love me in return. I'm definitely still trying to learn from it, but there has still been many times where I focus too much on making sure that others get what they want accomplished and not letting myself acknowledge when to call it quits.

I have two, actually.

Not going to college right after High School. I try not to dwell on it too much but I still wonder how life would be if I didn't take that year off from school. Would I be doing better off? Would I even be married??

Not spending enough time with my mother before she passed away. If I had not been in such a rush to get back home the last time I visited, would she still be around? The last conversation I had with her was her asking if I was going to come out to see her when she was going to have her leg amputated. I said no. She sighed, heavily and handed the phone over to my father. That was the last actual conversation I had with her. I wonder constantly how things would have gone if I said "yes" and actually gone out...

I don't like to think about either of these.

Так как я не пью, не курю, матом не ругаюсь, моя самая вредная привычка - это ложь :( Я думаю, это и есть вредная привычка, потому что с детсва мы не врали, а начиналось все это с каких то мелочей, что бы как то оправдаться. Поэтому, со временем мы врем всё больше и больше, а причины всё серьёзней. Хорошо бы действовать по принципу "Говори правду, и беги скорее!!!" :) Но ведь приходится часто врать, по веским причинам, и даже нужно? Но если любая ложь, со временем, будет известна, то какой смысл врать? И нужно ли от нее избавлятся?(если это возможно) В общем, я окончательно запутала

What is your favorite foreign film? Do you think there should be an American remake?

Americans need to stop ruining art and start being more original. I'm already angry enough that they remade Sweden's Let the Right One In and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

As for my favorite foreign film..I have lots. Right now, it's Lady Vengeance (Korea); The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Sweden); City of God (Brazil); Amelie (France); Princess Mononoke (Japan); Pan's Labyrinth (Spain).

My greatest regret is all the time I wasted looking for love, when I should have just let it find me. I think I might be somewhat trying to learn from it. It plagues me a tiny bit. I tried SO heard to be what "the one" for so many boys, that I never really spent much time developing myself as an individual. It's never too late, but I really do regret the time I've lost.

What’s a bad habit that you really need to quit?

Людей без вредных привычек не бывает. У каждого есть свои, любимые, оберегаемые, но родные.
У меня это моя боязнь ответственности.

Возможно эта привычка родилась во мне тогда, когда я понял в своем первом браке, что не готов отвечать за другого человека.
Не буду вдаваться в детали, но я не смог принимать человека, который оказался из другой моральной категории. Развелся. Не стал бороться.

И вот теперь понимаю, что мне очень легко бороться с разного рода вредными привычками в себе.
Захотел бросить курить - бросил.
Решил, что есть мясо - плохо - не ем.
И так во всем, что касается меня.



Но страшно боюсь взять на себя ответственность за другого человека.

Как вот с этим бороться?

What’s a bad habit that you really need to quit?

I need to stop nitpicking myself quite so much.  I do it all the time, whether it's my physical appearance, or how I think I'm not good enough.

I still pinch and prod, compare compare compare myself to other women, and judge how I look.  I always imagine that when people stare at me, they're thinking I'm not attractive enough, thin enough, so on and so forth.

How I think that most men I find attractive won't reciprocate that sentiment.  This makes me so afraid to tell individuals who I'm totally crushing on that I think they're beyond groovy...and I hate living in fear....it's not really, truly living.
  I need to take bravery lessons from my dearest sistahraven.


Silly habits die hard....I haven't been this small since high school, and that was only for about 6-8 months before I started gaining weight again.  I plan on being this "small" for a very long time (minus pregnancy, knock on wood.)

It really is a whole 'nother mindset  being this weight.  I've been a certain size/sizes for as long as I can remember, and now I'm not.  My mind is still trying to catch up. 

I need to stop being so judgmental of who I am, and find more positives.  I'm so in love with finding amazing things about my the people that matter to me the most...which should, fundamentally, include myself as well.  How can that [ultimately] special someone love me when I don't even fully love myself?  It's a slow process, I'm doing my best to love certain things about who I am, which will hopefully add up to the bigger picture.

Yeah...so I need to stop being so critical, harsh, and hard on myself.  I'm not perfect, it's okay to have flaws.

What is your biggest regret? Did you learn from it or does it still plague you?
That would have to be not learning proper English grammar. Since my parent didn't speak English when i first started going to school. I had a hella of a hard time, so I devoted myself to learning how to speak English. I didn't put any great effort in learning English grammar. Sadly it still haunts me today. Especially, when I'm trying to learn a new language and the teacher uses English grammar structures in comparison to the new language I'm trying to learn. Which don't really help, since i didn't really learn it in the first place.

What’s a bad habit that you really need to quit?

I have many bad habits. Luckily for me, I've worked on fixing some of them.

(I use to skip breakfast everyday. I use to drink a can of Coca Cola everyday as well. I've fixed those two habits. -- I don't remember when, I think the last time I drank a coke a day was years ago.)

I think the worst habit I have is I tend to rush into things. Head first. Full steam ahead. It's kind of awkward to explain. Because in general it's not characteristic of me. I tend to be cautious. Not a gambler. And I take long times to make decisions. But I do often rush full steam into something, head first when I probably shouldn't be. 

Sometimes, I just need to slow down and breathe. I think my mind is over-active. And sometimes volatile. It needs to be slowed sometimes!

Writer's Block: Happily ever after…

What's Harry going to do now that the series is over?

For a while, he's happy.

He's safe and surrounded by people who love him, after all, for the first time in his life. The memories of those that died are unsettling at first, but soon he learns to think less of their deaths and more of the joy of their having lived and the triumph of the hope for which they battled. He enjoys, sometimes, the perks of being a hero.

But eventually the congratulations and the adulations, diluted by their number, cease to matter. He watches his friends as they begin to put the pieces of their life back together, all the time wondering why it isn't so easy for him. He watches as Ginny returns to Hogwarts for her NEWTs, as George and Ron turn Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes into a household name, as Molly busies herself helping Andromeda raise Teddy. He wonders: if your whole existence was for one purpose, what do you do after you achieve that purpose?

On the whole, I rather think he turns to drink.

I think this is a great way for me to start my blog, considering the fact that I do indeed have writers block at this point in time. Anyways, my biggest regret would have to be anytime when I let my insecurites take control of my well being. This still plagues me on a daily basis. I'm far from being able to accept for myself for who I truly am...I wish I knew a good way to cope with it so it didn't interfere with certain things regarding my everyday life. Only time will tell I guess.

I'm hoping to answer this in more depth later (because I'm too ruddy tired for something this serious right now, but I really want to answer it).

My biggest regret would be middle school.

The Hollywood clique is that high school was the terrible time in life where everyone bullied each other and hated each other, but I disagree. High school is where I found my skin and got comfortable in it. Middle school was hell and I only made it worse.

My greatest regret is letting my credit get as bad as it has. I've made plenty of other monumental, life-altering mistakes, but all of them have led me to where I am today. I will never regret anything that led me to having my children, and living in this city halfway across the country from where I grew up, and meeting the amazing people who are now my friends.

What is your biggest regret? Did you learn from it or does it still plague you?
Though it seems entirely cliche, I can honestly say I regret nothing. I have been hard at work to keep this statement valid purely because it is the lifestyle I chose for myself. Regrets, to me, can only come in the form of not having one's mind entirely present for a decision. Either that, or a careless mistake; even those can be learned from, and devastatingly helpful, so I could never call a mistake a regret. My point being: I have no regrets, for every decision I have ever made has been a fully conscious and well thought out decision, as intelligent as I could possibly dish out for the time being. Seeing as I have never participated in any kind of drug/alcohol use that might alter the mind into coming to a conclusion that one could easily later regret, I feel that alone has helped me enough in the journey of a regret-free life. Other than that, it comes down to the full acceptance of any decision that I have ever made, no matter what the outcome, and understanding that mistakes cannot mirror regrets. A mistake cannot be regretted, because if this were the case than we would all just wish away our wrongdoings and fail to grasp the new given knowledge that can be gained from what exactly went wrong. Anyways, my point is simple enough. I have zero regrets, and I don't say so as a certain fantasy or denial. I truly have been aware of every decision I have ever had to make, and I have taken insight from every happening that has gone terribly wrong, or simply that hasn't made me happy, or brought me what I expected. I don't like to believe in regrets, because one life is one life, and if we all just run around wishing we hadn't done things that we did, we will never make any true progress. And, the most simple reason, I just feel like I can lead a happier life if I adjust and train my mind to a pattern of regretting nothing. Regret is just another form of hurting oneself. It is telling yourself you were wrong, and filling the mind with pictures and lessons that would have been a better way out. Sure, there are situations that I could have handled better having made an alternate choice or taken an alternate path but without the path I took, I couldn't have discovered what I did, and well, frankly I just don't like being mean to myself. There are enough people in this world to be mean to me. I'd rather not make their job any easier. Living without regret is taking one step closer to trusting yourself, believing in yourself, having faith. Truly seeing that yes, this decision was a great one, and benefited me in this way - or even no, this decision completely screwed me over but I don't regret it; I learned far too much. I like to learn. I like to trust myself. I like to be in a raw state of mind when I choose whatever I choose for my life. And I like to be positive. I guess the mixture of all of these is what has led me to a time in my life when I can say, with complete confidence, that I live without regrets.

What is your biggest regret? Did you learn from it or does it still plague you?

What an excellent question but I don't know if I have a single answer for it. Most of my regrets might deal with other people and are easily solved when I move around. Other things I might regret...let's see, not studying harder last semester, lol! Granted, gas grew tight in the family and then I caught that terrible...whatever the hell it was!...and that screwed me all up any damn ways so I had a trifecta going on that pretty much would've stopped that semester early for one reason or another anyways.

Another regret; I never went to my high school prom. Not that I was crazy about my high school (better than my first high school in regards to I wasn't constantly being picked on but worse because of the mindset of the student body), but I should've asked my internship partner to the prom. One of the few people there that showed signs of not completely caving to the devil-may-care mindset of the rest. And then we got to share our Chemistry class together. And later were partners for our (terrible!) internship. And he lived only right down the street from me so we rode the same bus. You'd really think life was trying to seriously tell me, "Ask him the fuck out already!!!!!" what with all the major coincidences that put him in my vicinity but I come built with one major flaw: I'm shy. Like, don't look at the bank teller as she handles MY money because I don't want to be rude, shy. But in my defense, I technically did ask him to prom. It was while we were waiting for 'our students' to enter the classroom and we were sort of mentioning it and he might've said something about not knowing who to go with...or it was along those lines. Whatever it was, I squeaked out, "You could go to prom with me!" *right* when the bell rang. And that was it. I never gathered up the cajones to ask him again. Besides, don't think we had the money for a dress, hair, shoes, ect anyways...me not going was a financial decision as well as a social one. Also, I overheard him later speaking to one of his friends about a girl he liked. It wasn't me and who was I to try to compete with whoever she was? So...I let him go.

Let's see, one more anecdote...perhaps not school related this time, xD! ...I'm drawing a blank here. I never thought I was a person who lived with no regrets but it seems I am! Rather, I have no major ones. Huh...huzzah! :)

What is your biggest regret? Did you learn from it or does it still plague you?

That's a tough one because I always say I have no regrets. Yeah, in some ways I do wish I had done things differently sometimes, but at the same time, I learned something I needed to know from it. A mistake is not a mistake as long as you learn from it. Life throws things at us and how we handle it is up to us. Sometimes we mess up, but if we learn from it, we're better, stronger. Our experiences mold us into who we are as people. I know mine definitely have. I know I'm stronger right now than I was 3 weeks ago. I'm making choices that benefit me and not worrying about others. So no, I don't regret anything I've done. How can I when what happened needed to happen to give me a wake up call.. I would say my biggest regret was marrying Will, but at the same time he and I had a good relationship at one point... so I don't regret that either. Do I regret leaving him for the one I'm head over heels in love with? No because it made me happier... I wish I hadn't said some of the things I said to a few people but if they can't get over it, it's their problem... Life is what we make it. We can either be miserable and regret every mistake we ever make, or we can be strong and learn from it and become even stronger. I choose the latter because the first one just isn't that appealing... Misery loves company so if you're miserable, get away from me. I don't need anymore bad stuff... only good from here on out. Don't ever regret anything that you did because when you were doing it, you wanted to. If it turns out bad, learn from it... If it turns out good, enjoy it. Be a strong person and learn from your mistakes and you will go far in life.

Would you uproot your life and move to another city for someone that you love?

Yes... I've done it. I'm doing it again, but this time I'm not really uprooting because I don't have much of anything due to the fact that I uprooted my entire life for this person already. Let's just say it's been a rough few weeks. If you really truly love someone, you will go anywhere with them and help them out in any way you can. Even those who say they would never do that can't really say they wouldn't because if you love someone to that point it doesn't matter. You will go to any length to be with that person. I said I would never leave Ohio again as long as my dad was alive... Now I'm trying to move out of state because the man I love found us a place but it's in a different state. That's fine with me I need a change of scenery and I would go anywhere with this man. It's a strange feeling to be that in love with someone, but I think that's what true love is all about. You support your significant other in whatever they choose to do and if they move you go with them if it makes sense. As far as moving to be with someone who is in another state, I really wouldnt do that unless I'd known them in person first... It just wouldn't work. That really depends on how you personally feel about it though.

Maybe it'll be not having regrets if living with regrets is the proper way to live.  If experiences aren't to learn from, then never do it and see where you get.  But is man just some helpful tool of itself. 

Learn to help future generations who learn to help future generations who learn to help future generations...to exist as men, presumably, epic lives of passion.  But what purely selfish purpose does all the learning have?  I want to take it with me, this experience, to become something new of something old.  

Otherwise what is humanity but an advanced fungus?  (If a fungus can be "advanced.")  But who is to diminish a fungus, either?  What a great chemical bond love is. 

Some substance somewhere, that doesn't have to be felt between the index finger and thumb in order to be real.

My biggest regret is not being true to myself and doing what I believed if right and telling the truth. I stood for what everyone else thought I should be and what they wanted to hear for years. It destroyed so many things in my life. This still haunts me. I battle with this need to please vs. the need to be myself everyday. I am myself now and unfortunately it has been bringing me as much loss as people pleasing did. But still, being true to be and being honest is the right way to go no matter how much loss I incur. If they couldn't love me for me then they really didn't love me at all now did they? And a false love is the worst type of love. No refunds....indeed. If only.

Biggest regret is treating someone very close to me like dirt. She was a good friend and I wouldn't even listen to what she had to say or respond to her questions, when she was concerned about my health or something I"d react with anger instead of, well, thankfullness. I basically used her and after looking at my life as a whole, I really regret treating her like that.

It's been plaguing me a lot recently. She says it's all in the past but I still feel terrible and want to make it up to her somehow. Right now there isn't much I can do but my conscience isn't going to let me sit bakc and do nothing, even if she says so.

So, I'm glad I'm not the only one who cusses and swears in public. (Caz :P) But I tend to do it a lot. Except if there's kids close by. But otherwise I tend to use colorful metaphors often.

I eat a lot of junk food. I want to make healthier choices but I tend to hate how they taste or feel when I chew, so I always go to junk food, especially when I'm stressed or upset. I make excuses to eat junk. Like, something I was really worried about turned out fine so I want something to celebrate. Or something bad happened and I can't do anything about it, so I want more junk food.

I procrastinate. I'm really good about getting certain things done early. Other things I'd rather put off and play games or watch movies or TV instead. Or if it is more of an effort than I want to make I just don't do it.

I also need to learn to stand up for myself more. Sometimes I'm a doormat and let other people walk all over me. I stick up for myself sometimes, other times I don't.

Someone I didn't marry. It doesn't plague me. It IS me.

"Learn from it" is ridiculous. It's not that I wish I had done something different. It has to do with admitting to meaning. I admit to it. It's part of every moment I'll ever know.

What I did was decide. I decided this lesser reality we live in is divided in two parts: real and fake. I know real. The rest is a lie, a fiction serves some exigency that is not God.

Je ne regrette rien. There is no regret. If you will not give up you cannot lose. This proves the lies of the Enemy. Above all he is a coward.

Historically he's known as Satan. In some ways Lucifer is better: a fake light. Something that would have you lie and say you do not know what you know, you'll put away veritas as though you owned it. But I give this enemy no name. All it has is a function which is you kick it to the gutter.

When I was younger I wasted $500 of hard saved money to buy into one of those stupid 'get rich' schemes and was mortified when it was basically five giant binders that told me to buy and sell houses.

I'm glad it happened when it did. I was young, silly, but still ambitious to get my life started so I really don't remember it setting me back too much. It was also during my period of youthful stupidity. I was ashamed for it for a long while, but I got over it when I realized I don't fall to swindling so easily since. :3

What is your biggest regret? Did you learn from it or does it still plague you?

Life is a learning experience.  We aren’t perfect. The shock of reality.  It takes all the mistakes to discover who we are.  I can’t say that I really have any regrets.  If I changed anything, I wouldn’t be me.  Sure I could have discovered who I was as individual a lot earlier. But then I would not have had my two wonderful children who bring me plenty of pleasure as well as aggravation.   I could regret gaining weight but then I wouldn’t realize how strong I really I am.  Maybe I wouldn’t realize I could do anything I decide to do.  I could regret getting involved with William since he did cheat and the end was extremely heartbreaking.  I don’t.  I had eighteen months of pure love and happiness.  If I had never experienced that would I know the possibilities that await me in the future?  I could regret wasted time. But truly is time wasted if you learn and grow?   I don’t regret things I say.  I am very careful when I pick my words during heated conversations.   I learned I don’t always have to be right. I just have to be able and willing to adjust my opinion when proven wrong.  I learned early on that it’s always best to take responsibility for you actions.  When you do that, there are no regrets.  Any mistake becomes a learning experience and is made right.

Want to make a small fortune in woodworking?  Start off with a large fortune.

I've said this before and I'll say it again:  my biggest regret is squandering my $26,000 inheritance in 2009 on another one of my hairbrained schemes.  This time moving to Pittsburgh to partner up with a buddy on a woodshop idea that turned out to be a disaster.

If I had to do it all over again, I would have moved back to Colorado, gotten a nice apartment, went to Red Rocks Community College for their woodworking program, and started up a solo shop there.

Of course I learned from it, and it will continue to plague me until this path I am currently on proves profitable enough to justify that sacrifice.  I might not have gone to college, but I did graduate the school of hard knocks and lessons learned.

I regret not being able to attend the ADA Celebration Day here in Springfield.  I haven't attended it since, the first year I attended the Youth With Disabilities Leadership Summit. Back at that time, I really had a blast at that event.  When I last went, I learned that I can advocate for my rights, as well as help other people with disabilities do the same.  I have learned that we, as Americans with Disabilities, should be able to advocate for the things we want all the time; educating others on what we want and how we'd like it is the key to how succesful we can be.  The ADA Celebration Day is coming up on Wednesday, and I'd really like to go this year.

I think my biggest regret has always been wanting to take the easy way out instead of toughing it out.  There are times where the main  thing I want to do in life is escape, whether it's by sleeping, watching TV, playing on the Internet, reading, or eating.  It still plagues me.  This morning I felt like going back to bed and going back to Little Nemo's Slumberland.  Luckily I managed to resist this.  Although the feeling is still gripping me.  Well, all God's children got problems.

What’s a bad habit that you really need to quit?

I need to stop talking shit behind people's backs and tell them straight-up if I have a problem with them.  It's an embarrassing issue that has not helped me maintain positive, functioning relationships.

Been working on this for about two years and made a little headway.  New attitudes and perspectives make it easier to keep my piece instead of spreading drama.  I have a lot of ground to make up for.

I never visited my grandpa in the hospital when he was dying. my family said it was serious and strongly suggested that I visit him but I just believed that he'd be better and I could visit him when he was out of the hospital. they said he was in a lot of pain and couldn't get comfortable. it makes me teary thinking of it now that I'm an adult and know better. it's all pretty terrible. he died on my 16th birthday and we got the call just as we were lighting and candles on my cake. they made me open my gifts. I just sat there blubbering trying to look appreciative of my gifts. when I got home my Ma wanted me to try on something I'd just gotten. I did to make her happy but just sat in it on the bed crying. I've done a lot of things that perhaps I should regret but I don't because they made me what I am and I suppose this did too. but this is the biggest regret of my life and I hope I never have a bigger one.

and on to happier things
took the boys to the RI park with the water play area
schweibert(sp?) park I think is the name
our little tykes stood out like sore thumbs
because the crowd, and boy was it crowded, was predominantly black
SUCH cute little black girls with afro puffs! EVERYwhere
everyone was friendly and respectful despite the crowding
and kids played very nice
I'd expect with the different age groups to have more conflicts
but the water really makes everyone too happy for that I suppose
the boys were actually ok going to the car at the end
because we stayed long enough everyone was BEAT
came home and gave the monkeys ice cream
and made homemade lemonaid

this week I'm hoping my tracing paper shows up soon
and I can get on to drawing
I've got 2 sleeves to work on!
this week in tattoos is mostly small work
and gaps in work
hopefully I'll have my computer issues resolved
and I can get back to sewing
I've really been inspired by this site
and all the different dress designs on it
I can look at almost any dress
and know how the pattern is designed
I'm pretty excited to try my hand at designing this way
I'm hoping my friend Melissa will be willing/able
to help me make a duct tape dress form
maybe on Wed if we get everything with the computer
done today
there's motivation for me

ok things to arrange so I can go work out this morning
music to take off my player
it's an elliptical day
I've been switching back and forth
between elliptical and treadmill
and my weights have gone up a bit
so I'm getting stronger
and with that I now weigh 124
pretty consistently
not so into that but whatever
not sure if I want to do the pectoral building machines anymore
fear that I'll turn what little I have into muscle
it's probably not possible quite like that
but being thinner my boobs have taken a hit
and there wasn't much to start with!

oh well off to it all!
LOADS to do
Domestic? Never!

I regret my 96% in English last school year. (It’s my worst subject.) I tried my best, but I couldn’t seem to shake the grade, and get it up with my other scores, but I suppose the grade is acceptable. I suppose it makes sense that my biggest regret would be in school, or maybe not. I regret lots of things, but this came to mind first, so I’ll post it.
