I went to Ocean City, MD last week for a mother-daughter trip (it was lovely). One of my favorite spots was a little boutique called Ish; that’s where I spotted this little beauty of a notebook (the company that produces it is Chronicle Books; they’re an awesome independent publishing company with a cacophony of awesome stuff).

It reminded me of Catherine Tate, whom played my favorite DW companion, Donna Noble; naturally, I had to get it.

The pen! Oh, that glorious pen. It’s a gift from my mom; she bought it at a little artisan shop in Berlin, MD. It’s a Delish glass pen; the ink is refillable, just gotta remove it from any BIC pen.  

The journal’s going to be for quotes that move me, or recovery things, or all of the fun fucking brilliant thoughts that enter my head. Obvi, I’ll be using the pen to record all of those.

I wanted to share all of this because 1) I’m a little obsessive with my new interests, and 2) while I don’t consider myself a particularly materialistic person, some items “speak” to me; they’re just meant to be mine. :P

Plus, in the words of another great Donna from “Parks & Recreation,” it’s important that you:

Cool stuff is cool.

It’s still kinda hard for me to talk about the sobriety thing beyond the ears of certain loved ones, but just tossed up a new post on my sobriety/healthy living blog…

"I’m 2 days shy of getting that 30 Day chip, and naturally, this is when I’m getting both of the mental and physical cravings stronger than ever before. Seems the desire to self-destruct will be a reoccuring theme, even when so determined to self-improve." - More here.

My mom got a kitten! She’s cute as hell. 2 months, black mixed with calico coloring, very talkative and curious. Mom calls her Murano, after Venetian glass. I call her Kitty Blah Blah, because that’s the sorta thing I’d name an animal.
She’s precious, and a most-welcome distraction in this crazy life. <3

Been more than 2 weeks sober. That might not seem like a big deal, but in hindsight, I honestly can’t recall the last time I’ve gone this long without drinking.

I’m more exhausted than usual, lots of self-reflection going on, even doing some of the meditating bit (which is basically me tuning in to what I call my “in-flight movie” and going on mind palace adventures, just letting the imagination do its thang).

Anywhoo. I’ve announced this once before, but I do have another blog that I use solely for sobriety/recovery-related things (I have NO idea how I managed to get away with that bad-ass DW-themed name), as well as focusing on positivity and healthy living. I’d love it if you’d join me.

This blog will still hang around, though I’ll likely use it more for my fangirlin’ and more general stuff.
