A Quick Sunday Night Five(ish) Minutes

Say it Rah-shay By Mar 15, 2015 4 Comments

I kept putting off doing a five(ish) minute brain dump because I wasn’t sure what I wanted to say. I’m in the weird place where some things are complete, some other things haven’t started and I am procrastinating my ass off for the things I am doing because that is my norm and sometimes it gets like that.

I keep thinking that I need to be doing something but what that something is…I dunno. I feel like I have a great opportunity and I am not using it to my full advantage. Then I get upset with myself for getting upset and nothing gets done.

Here are random thoughts:
The Bee is fifteen. What the ham fat?! Who thought her growing up was a good idea?!

I need to catch up on The Walking Dead. I’ve missed like two seasons and am way behind on the comics.

Someone graffitied all over my family room at work last week. People suck monkey balls.

Empire is doing a very good job addressing mental illness in the Black community. As a person who suffers from depression I totally get the stigma that comes with being Black and admitting that something just ain’t right.

I was selected for a weight loss study. I am hopeful and saddened at the opportunity. All I can think is that I have finally reached fat ass stage.

I am really bummed that I wrote the above sentence. How dare I fat shame MYSELF?!

I helped a student today but worry that I gave him bad information.

I rocked storytime on Friday.

My cat needs a bath.

In the smallest, tiniest itty bitty corner of my mind I can see myself maybe, possibly not saying absolutely, “No” about getting married again.

I am going to rewatch Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt when I get home tonight. For the severalteenth time.



This was my 5(ish) minute Stream of Consciousness Sunday post. It’s five(ish) minutes of your time and a brain dump. Want to try it? Here are the rules…

  • Set a timer and write for 5 minutes.
  • Write an intro to the post if you want but don’t edit the post. This is writing in the raw.
  • Publish it somewhere. Anywhere. The back door to your blog if you want. But make it accessible.
  • Link back to this post (feel free to use the SOC Sunday graphic).
  • Add your post to the link up
  • Visit your fellow bloggers and show some love.

I am mom, daughter, sister, yarn lover, word lover, crazy cat lady and library chick. Find me with book or with hook and a hot cuppa.

    OMG Rachee you are right! Mexicans are the same way when it comes to mental illness or special needs. It’s super taboo.. but I think it will be a conversation that will get louder soon. Cheers new friend! 🙂

  2. "People suck monkey ball" no truer a saying has ever been said! Found you through Fadra Nally! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Because that’s what we do – shame ourselves. Just don’t allow yourself to stay there.

    Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt? That popped up on something of mine saying since I watched such and such I might like it. I’ll have to give it a shot. Watching 17 times is a definite recommendation.

    I was shaming myself when I was trying on a dress for a gala this week. Evan came in and said, “Mommy, you look beautiful. It doesn’t matter how the rest of you looks.” And then someone asked me if I was pregnant. I think I need some fat shaming. Also, how do you have a family room at work?

Your turn! Tell it to Rah-shay!
