Not quite the breakfast of champions

Fritos, clam dip, sun tea, and a pepto bismol chewables chaser (original flavor).

I'm sick of drainage from sinuses and allergies and weather changes.

Feeling a bit overwhelmed of late. In part, it's the father's day/dad's birthday combo this weekend, but it's more than that. Tuesday, I didn't turn my computer on at all so my email and feed reader were packed on Wednesday. There's an acute awareness of my lack of direction. The best gift of living up to my potential that I ever gave my dad was the year his birthday and father's day fell on the same day, the day I graduated valedictorian from my high school.

It's not like it's all been downhill since then, but it doesn't feel particularly auspicious; the past couple years have been downright aimless. Watching segments here and there of The Big Idea makes success seem just a few steps away. One passion away but the inspiration just isn't there. Shake it off, Claire, shake it off.

One year ago at TTaT: Relieved


  1. It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blog is also so cool!

    Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together.

    I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle. That's not the point. Pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!

  2. Claire, you're not alone. Heck, I've made it into my forties thinking that I reached my highlight giving my high school commencement speech, too. :) But it's not true. Some of us just take longer to find our place. (And stinking rotten sinus problems make everything seem worse, I swear.)

    When I find my niche, I'll let you know.

  3. Um, OK, Joshua.

    Merujo: Thanks, M. And dude, the sinus problems, no joke! Makes me question where I live. Never bothered me much in CA (of course, other things did ;)

    Least I got all my Dad's presents made, bought, wrapped, and presented so that's a few things off my mind.
