Wait, nobody has ever quoted me back to me before!*

P.S. highlight of my day...my blog was linked in this blog. For a girl who just wants to have a famous blog...this is big. Now on to the post:

Do you ever get restless? You're just sitting there and your entire body is itching to do something or go somewhere? I've got that, I'm suffering as I type from a restlessness that I can't really identify.

I think I usually get this way in the spring because for a majority of my life spring has signified the beginning of the end. All through school spring came just before summer, in college spring was when you were packing up your things to either move or to put in storage while you went home for the summer. Spring is the season of change and new possibilities and I just don't see any penciled in on my calendar and it's driving me crazy.

By the end of the month I want to have done something different and new. I know I have a trip to the Eastern states scheduled for the end of April, but it's not enough to quench my thirst I suppose. Something's gotta give, something in my day to day life needs refreshing/renewal or I need to change something. It doesn't have to be a dramatic thing, it could be painting a room, getting a new routine, finding a new "can't put it down" book to read.

I don't know, I'm just getting antsy. It's an annoying sensation, but it's not nearly as bad as the, "want to give up on everything" mood I was in a couple of weeks ago (I didn't know at the time it was because I was exhausted and sick). This is the mood that it's good to be in when you spring clean because you're ready to shed off all the old junk you've been holding on to.

Is anyone else feeling this "spring fever"?? If so, what are you doing to alleviate it? I could use some suggestions.

hmmm....cut your hair? Go spring shopping...that's always fun! Get mono and run a marathon! I think I'll go to the gym tonight and run at least the 15 minutes I did last night!

your welcome for trying to get you famous:)

When Harry Met Sally!

1 - I thought you were famous already
2 - I got restless this weekend when I was home for once - this lead to a full apartment cleaning, getting caught up on laundry, and purging the wardrobe.
3 - Other options include different running routes, new goals/books to work for, moving furniture, more time with me, and getting ready for a summer by the pool with me (seriously).
4 - Either You've Got Mail or Confessions of a Shopaholic???

A good game of basketball works for me. But I did get about 5 inches cut off my hair too so maybe there is something in that. Running away with my sweetie for a night on the town helps too. Good luck!

...everyone's a comedian :P

The winner for the Blog Bucks is Marissa, the movie is Confessions of a Shopaholic.

Pst, Marisa - I don't really hang out at pools...but I'll give it a try for you (especially cause you have one).

Sandy - I would run away with my sweetie too...but I need to have one I CAN run away with :) I really like that idea though.

I get that but I haven't really gotten it lately because my life is in transition already.

What normally helps me is to do something fun or different or something for myself. It usually takes care of the urge but then gives a renew sense of adventure.

You could take a class or make a day trip somewhere you've always wanted to go to.
