It’s my first week back with a “real blog” (as opposed to only an erratic tumblr), and it was all I could do not to write some half-done filler post out of pure excitement. While it’s nice to post short thoughts or quips on tumblr and twitter, I much prefer the ability to have longer, more thought out posts on a blog. I mean, I could do that on tumblr, but there’s something about tumblr that just doesn’t feel like that’s the place to do it for me; it’s probably the reblogging factor. But that’s why I have several places of presence on the internet, right? They each fulfill their certain need.
This past week, my emotions have been a bit of a roller coaster, as they seem to be every week, but I’d say it was a mostly positive one. I shouldn’t have to rack my brain too much for the good bits to share.

Three ways to make next week great:
- Write. My plans is 1,000 words per day, and so far I’ve managed that quite well aside from yesterday (which was a holiday, so that’s my excuse). Every day I manage to stay on track, I manage to stay positive–and the days I stay ahead are even better.
- Go for a bike ride. I’ve been wanting to do this for weeks now, basically since we’ve moved, but I have a hard time getting myself to leave the house by alone. This would be such a good way to explore, get some sun, and get a little exercise in. Plus, I need to get more comfortable on my road bike, or else sell it and just stick to my cruiser.
- Finish A Storm of Swords. These books always take me a month to read, and I think I’m about due to finish this one up. As good as the series is, the books always take a lot out of me, and I’m looking forward to reading something new when I’m done.
How has July started out for you?
“It’s Friday; I’m in Love” is a weekly gratitude post. It aims to remind myself and others of the good things from the past week, big and small; to share ways to make the next week a positive one; and to serve as a record to look back on for the not-so-great days to come. The title comes from the song by The Cure.
