The Changing of the Seasons

27 Sep

 

It’s that time of year again…fall. Often fondly known as Autumn.

It is the favorite time of year of many. Everywhere I go people remark how beautiful it is and how much they love it. And I’m inclined to agree.

But no. It isn’t.

My brain says I love it. I step outside and the sun is at an angle that makes the whole world feel warmer and cozier. The trees are turning brilliant shades of golds and oranges and reds. The nights are cool, but the days are still warm. It’s absolutely brilliant.

My heart, however, does not seem to agree.

When I step outside, I get this horrible sinking feeling. I want to go for a walk or take the dog out, or just sit outside, but I can never bring myself to do so. Sometimes I just want to cry, but most of the time I just want to run back inside and close myself up from the world…maybe take a nap until summer. I wanted to go look at the aspens changing colors today, but then I changed my mind. Decided I didn’t want to leave my house or see people. Then, I feel like I’ve wasted a perfectly beautiful day by spending it inside doing nothing.

That is why fall isn’t my favorite.

What’s your favorite season? Are you ready for another year to be over?

Sleep Talking

3 Jul

 

I recently watched a video of a guy explaining his recordings of his voice while sleeping. Some of the things he said while asleep were quite entertaining, so I downloaded the app to record myself and see what I say! Unfortunately, I have a problem. I can’t actually bring myself to record.

I know it seems silly, but I’m worried about what I’ll hear on the playback. What if I hear voices or sounds that don’t belong to me? What if I start speaking in tongues or something crazy? What if by random chance I hear the sounds of someone trying to get into my apartment?

The thought of any of those is scary to me, and I’m definitely one who prefers not to know. If I don’t know, I can’t psych myself out.

Have you ever recorded video or audio of yourself while you slept? What did you find? Are you interested in recording yourself? Do you worry about these things, and what would you do if you caught something crazy?
