The word of the day is...

The word of the day is stress. I'm stressed about my work life, stressed about my personal life. Even running - which is supposed to be my stress reliever - is stressing me out bc I'm struggling.

For the past six months I've been pretty happy in Houston. And I want that to continue. I still like Houston but this past week was... 

It was a flashback to the way my life used to be. I stayed in Tuesday-Sunday, read two books and didn't do much else outside of work besides play on the internet and watch tv. And while it can be relaxing sometimes, after three days of it I was bored out of my mind. But I didn't have anything to do. After two years of working here, I only have a handful of friends inside and outside the office and everyone had something else to do.

You try moving to a new city you've never been to and see how easy it is to make friends. At 33, it's not. I do need to put more effort into this. I don't want to be a hermit for the rest of my life.

Yesterday was better, I went to the movies to see Lucy. Really weird flick. And tonight K and I are going to the Social Run that ends at Local Pour.

You know what would really relieve my stress? Getting one of these cute puppies! Part french bulldog, part boston terrier...they are perfect! Relax mom, I'm not getting a puppy. yet.

In the meantime, maybe I'll work on a few of these things and see if they help...
