Sunday Confessions 7-31-16

The United States of Becky

I confess: I hate mopping. So generally if something gets on the floor, I spray it with cleaner and wipe it down with a rag, or I use an anti-bac wipe depending on what it is. Ugh. Mopping is just the worst, right?

I confess: I'm kinda excited for August for absolutely no reason. Nothing particularly exciting about August, I'm just randomly excited to be turning the page to a new month, I guess. 

I confess: I saw this thing that was "If you could only watch 5 movies for the rest of your life, what would they be?" I didn't think of all five, but the first one that popped into my head was a chick flick. D'oh! Pretty sure there wouldn't be any socially relevant, visually striking, groundbreaking, etc., etc., films on that list.

Sunday Confessions 7-24-16

The United States of Becky

I confess: Summer is delightful. It's great. But there is a lot of bullshit that comes along with summer that annoys me to no end and the past couple weeks have been one of those times when all the summer bullshit, i.e., extra traffic; melting; figuring out what to eat without cooking; Shawn working extra hours; construction, - all that stuff is grating on my nerves extra hard.

I confess: I'm thrilled that more and more birds have been seen eating around our apartment complex. For a while it was zero birds. Because, you know, the shitty thing about building a new apartment complex is they bulldozed forest and fields. Which is part of why we have an abundance of spiders here. But now the birds are coming back.

I confess: I'm planning to do a new thing called Film Friday and it's going to be mostly shitty B movies, (because that is what I watch) however, some good stuff. If you have a request of something you'd be interested in getting my thoughts on (because....most important review of all, right?) I am open to suggestions.

I confess: A couple days ago we went and had Moomers ice cream. And I had a large.
PS - If any of you ever come to TC, you won't be sorry either. 
Although, allow plenty of time because an average summer evening gives about a 40 minute wait.

I confess: Snapchat filters kinda squig me out. Like I'll be scrolling through
instragram and everything is fine and suddenly I run into one and I'm like 
"thanks for the unexpected nightmare."

I confess: When I posted my doctor's office weigh-in on my instagram, that was 
actually six pounds down from where I was a month ago. Oi.

Sunday Confessions 7-3-16

The United States of Becky

I confess: I'm not really all that fussed about July 4th. I am well aware of the failings of the founding fathers and how they were rich white men and blah blah blah. When I think about the American Revolution, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Star-Spangled Banner, I get very goosebumpy with patriotism and love for my country.
And then society happens and I'm both outraged and embarrassed on so many levels. This is me when I read the news.

I confess: I have been considering the idea of a second instagram account, this one private and dedicated to my fitness, health, stuff, etc. 

~One place for all that stuff/won't be in my feed annoying people who get sick of it, is available for those who are interested.
~Can stick to related 'grammers, etc. 
~I have had difficulty in finding much, if anything, on instagram that is actually useful/helpful/inspiring when it comes to fitness & health for super beginners (actual beginners). I think that would be good and there are a lot of awesome people on instagram & the internet.
~Managing another instagram account.
~I am kind of a firm believer in showing the full person, rather than isolating a certain area. I'm not sure. I know compartmentalizing is easier and better for some people, but I'm not sure if it will work for me. I generally prefer to see all sides of a person rather than just an ongoing journal of ate/drank/workout/weight-in. (That would not be my account, even if I do create a separate one.) 
~If I were to do a fitness/health directed account, I would probably end up sharing more, i.e., more "body" pictures, more "how my clothes fit," "how little I am able to work out under the dictates of doctors" type pics, and that shit is SCARY for a lot of reasons, not the least of which being people.

So I don't know. I'd kinda like your feed back. What do you guys think? If I made a special account for that stuff, would you follow it, would you be interested? I do think it's cool to show a whole person though. So....let me know your thoughts.

idk shrug i dont know i dunno
