November 30, 2013 -- A rant for the holidays: to you from me.

No Way.  I haven't posted since October first?!

Life is screaming past, friends.  Lots of good, fun things have happened!

When I try to think of all of the things that have happened in the past 2 months, I am overwhelmed to the point of inaction.  Except... well, what comes to mind is how people function.

Brian and I are not big planners.  We never have been.  This is why many of the events which have taken place in the past have occurred without a lot of forewarning.  There are certain characteristics that don't usually get a lot of praise these days.  Among them: spontenaity spontinaity spontineity spontenaety spontaneity.   Sometimes I feel a little heat from people for not planning my life enough. 
Nobody likes to feel judged.

Not me.

Don't we all just want to be loved?

I admit, I'm a little sensitive when it comes to criticism.  In my mind, anything can be criticized.  Anything can be seen in a negative light.  Why choose to criticize?

I guess some people like to talk about ideas, some people like to talk about people and some people like to talk about what other people do wrong.... But... If it's a problem, why not tell the offending person?   To me, it seems pretty simple.  The most complicated part of it is being open to a difficult conversation.  Okay, so most normal people avoid difficult conversations. 

And I'm not immune.  I judge people.  I just really try not to.


So, how 'bout Thanksgiving, huh?  Wasn't that great?
