Confessions

Brain fog, foggy brain, drunk cat

Today’s blog is brought to you courtesy of my current state of brain fog. You know about brain fog. It’s that feeling you get when your head is swimming and you can’t quit focus. It’s almost like being tipsy without chugging all that delicious alcohol. Now, what kind of fun is that?!

In honor of my drunken (no so drunken) stooper, I’m bringing you one of the favorite pastimes of drunks everywhere (with a little less slurring) – confessions!

* On mornings like today when I’m not feeling 100% I secretly hope my students won’t pick up the phone. I’m such a great teacher.

* Because I work a split shift (6-10 AM & 3-7 PM), I totally have a nap time. Why should children be the only ones to partake in this awesomeness?

* I may be 28, but in my mind I’m totally still 12 and 21. So while my friends are getting married and popping out little ones, I’m over here drinking wine and playing video games.

* I mentioned this before when I received the Liebster Award, but I have no interest in walking down the isle. I do believe in long term commitment, but I don’t think a piece of paper or large ceremony is quite necessary for me. I’m content with the commitment itself. This doesn’t mean I don’t get teary eyed at weddings or shake my groove thing on the dance floor. Because I totally do! I am also very content to stuff my face with a slice of cake (or two).

Marriage, I love weddings, Jack Sparrow

* In addition to not wanting to get married, I also have no desire to procreate. I love children, but I don’t want any little mini-mes of my own running around. My dogs are my babies and I’m perfectly happy with that.

Friend are getting married, Marriage

* In college, I totally used to bust out the crayons and a coloring book to de-stress. It was nice to take a break from cramming for Organic Chem to relive the glory days of my youth when I rocked at coloring within the lines. Juice boxes all around!

* I also really love to watch trash TV to unwind. It’s nice to turn my brain off and indulge in a little stupidity every now again in the form of reality TV.

* I already revealed my childhood desire to change my name to Cinderella, but what I didn’t mention was that my parents called me Lynserelly until the day I left for college. So I guess the real confession here is that I was too unimaginative to come up with a better name option than Cinderella. Way to go 5 year old Lynsey. Way to go.

What are some of your best confessions? Leave me a comment and share the wealth!

  • YES COLORING IN COLLEGE!! My entire floor of like 20 girls would get together and color and hang pictures on our doors. You would think you were walking down the halls of an elementary school when you walked down our hall.

    • Hah! That’s awesome! I think naps and coloring should totally be brought back for adults. 🙂

  • I’m not sure what I can confess. But I’ve just written a ranty post about not wanting children which I’ll publish tomorrow!

    • Hah! I was going to write a post about not wanting children also. I look forward to reading yours! 😀

  • I wonder if you have had similar experiences to me in regards to not wanting children.

  • Lynsey, the more I read your blog, the more I realize how much we are alike. I’ve actually been suffering from brain fog myself the last couple of days but that aside, I would always pray my clients wouldn’t come in when I was working at the spa. Even if it meant I didn’t make any money. I was just so over it I would rather sit in the back doing nothing than my job. And I just ordered this coloring book called Outside The Line where you get to color in works by Keith Haring and Shepard Fairey. You can get it at us.penguingroup.com. Love the cat photo! Keep it up Lysney, I can’t spot your fog, you’re doing great.

    • Thanks for the encouragement! I’m glad you finally decided to leave your job at the spa since it was no longer enjoyable for you. Life is definitely too short to stay somewhere you don’t want to be. And by the way, that coloring book rocks! I just looked it up and I’m definitely going to have to order it. Coloring has been taken to all new heights. 🙂
