If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am feeling so much better now! For the past few weeks I have been either sick with a nasty cold or feeling a bit down and depressed but the cold is gone and Christmas is coming!
Usually I’m not a big fan of the holidays but every year it gets better and better and this year is turning out to be the best one yet! We have a tree up and it’s a damn good looking tree! We are buying gifts for each other and this year we have more money to go around. We are also going to be spending Christmas day at home, just the two of us! It will be perfect.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that today is the last day of NaBloPoMo and I am glad it’s finally over. I wrote about it yesterday and talked about all the things I had learned. I’m going to slow down a bit now that’s it’s over but only because I want my writing to be better. I’m still going to write everyday but I want to take more time thinking and editing now.
If we were having coffee I would also tell you that because of that I have decided to join The Daily Post’s newest Blogging U. course, Writing 201. It looks like they are going to be focusing on blogging on the longform side of things, which I tend to lean towards anyway. If you want to give longform a try I encourage you to check it out.
Lastly, if we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have gone 17 days without a cigarette. I know that doesn’t sound like much but I assure you it has been very, very difficult to make it this far. Everyday it gets a little easier but I still do crave them multiple times a day, I imagine I will for a long while. I want one right now to be honest but I know i can’t have one. I have to think of my health and my girlfriend.
I have an app on my phone that gives me stats based on my quit date and time. I put my date in as November 13th, 2014 at 6:00 AM. Since then I have gone 17 days, 2 hours, 49 minutes, and some seconds without a cigarette. I have NOT smoked 171 cigarettes. I have saved $47.02. And I have saved 17 hours of my time. I’m not sure if that is time not smoking or time my life has been extended but either way it’s good.
I am proud of myself but I try not to brag too much, I feel like I am just doing what I should’ve done a long time ago. This is not the first time I have tried and I can’t help still being disappointed in myself for not being strong enough to quit sooner. I am still at risk for a lot of health problems and I hope that one day I won’t be looking back and hating myself for developing some sort of cancer or other health issue because I started smoking and couldn’t quit.
But enough about that! If we were having coffee I would apologize for talking so much, I do tend to ramble on, especially when I’m talking about myself. I’d then say it was time I heard how you were doing, so please let me know in the comments :)
P.S. Just a quick note before you go, I wanted to remind all of you that I am present on a few other networks across the web too. I have a brand new Facebook page that isn’t much right now but I would still appreciate a few likes if you could. If you’re on Tumblr you should DEFINITELY follow me there, I post a lot. And finally there is Twitter which I am finally getting the hang of and using much more than I used to. Anyway check me out or give some feedback if you have a minute. Thanks!
