AHAD: Day 59

Day 59: questions

[These are questions I ask myself at least once a day. The first and third are asked several times a day. I'm not good at keep track of pencils.]

For the non-imaged:

where is my pencil?
did i turn off the oven?
is it snack time yet?

AHAD: Day 58

Day 58: s'mores

[They are seriously delicious. I even made a lazy version which uses marshmallow fluff instead of marshmallows... mmm. I was eating some while writing this haiku. And dark chocolate is the best to use.. unless you don't like dark chocolate. Then use milk chocolate. Just don't use white chocolate. Bleh.]

For the non-imaged:

the best snack ever.
i could it it ever day.
dark chocolate's best.

AHAD: Day 57

Day 57: Blerg

[Or something like that, with words at least, in some order, but possibly not at all related to each other. Including misspellings due to sleepiness, but only by lack of letter, no additions.]

For the non-imaged:

it and the we now
things do for the when but how
blue triumps by the door

AHAD: Day 56

Day 56: sea shells

[I need some tiny sea shells to really fill in the gaps in this glass jar. It's a nice decoration on my desk. I'm pleased with it.]

For the non-imaged:

many in a jar
i collected them all from
the ocean grave yard.

AHAD: Day 55

Day 55: vacation days

[Vacation days aren't as weird as sick days. Both, however, are still very odd to me. I suppose having a full-time job where I only work at one location is also not what I'm used to. Eventually it will become normal, right?]

For the non-imaged:

taking the day off
and still getting paid for it
seems so strange to me.

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

AHAD: Day 54

Day 54: baking

[Sometimes I don't feel like baking at all. Other times I bake two different things in one day. It's unpredictable. But I've learned to not bake when I don't feel like it because those baked goods generally turn out awful.]

For the non-imaged:

waiting for the bread
so i can make the cookies
and then go to bed.

Monday, March 25, 2013

AHAD: Day 53

Day 53: Plans

[I don't like making plans because there are too many variables and I can't really control things. Short term plans are okay, but planning several months in advance isn't as okay. I recently made plans for mid-May, so we'll see how that goes...]

For the non-imaged:

they  never work out,
so why bother making them?
just stick to guidelines.

Sunday, March 24, 2013

AHAD: Day 52

Day 52: cheese

[I try to not each much dairy, but I'm terrible at not eating cheese. Sometimes I feel fine after, other times I instantly feel awful. One day I'll figure out something and lovely as cheese to go on foods.]

For the non-imaged:

is made of dairy.
i need to stop eating it
because it hurts me.

Saturday, March 23, 2013

AHAD: Day 51

Day 51: Saturday

[I guess that's not entirely true. I do sometimes do something, like go to the beach or downtown. Usually I just want to be lazy. Off topic: I decided to tweak the colorization of the image today myself. I think I like it.]

For the non-imaged:

the same every week.
a day with much potential,
and i do nothing.

Friday, March 22, 2013

AHAD: Day 50

Day 50: hot chocolate

[I'm not sure if I even really wanted the hot chocolate. Now my tongue hurts and everything I eat is going to feel weird.]

For the non-imaged:

why are you so hot?
and why must you burn my tongue?
why do you hate me?

Thursday, March 21, 2013

AHAD: Day 49

Day 49: distractions

[I'm distracted from my distractions by distractions. I should get back to playing AC: Revelations. I should probably do several other things instead of that... but yeah. Priorities.]

For the non-imaged:

so many projects
that i would like to work on
but i'm not focused.

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

AHAD: Day 48

Day 48: ow

[I thought it was due to being tired. Instead the headache was due to the thunderstorm that started when I went to bed. It's sometimes annoying to get headaches/migraines due to pressure changes. Other causes (for me) include caffeine, lack of sleep or changed sleep schedule, certain foods (grr dairy), and stupid people. I'm not sure the last one counts as an actual trigger, though.]

For the non-imaged:

i have a headache.
there could be many causes,
but i think it's sleep.

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

AHAD: Day 47

Day 47: civilization 5

[This game takes forever to play. I suppose playing on a large map with 6 AI and something like 20 city states doesn't help. I have 3 policy trees completed. And Joe is just going to war with people. Fun times.]

For the non-imaged:

we're on a large map
we've been playing for two days
it's not a short game

Monday, March 18, 2013

AHAD: Day 46

Day 46: words

[Seriously, words are weird. I hate when you are proofreading something that uses the same word over and over and after a while you question if it is even a real word.]

For the non-imaged:

complicated things.
sometimes forget their meanings.
arbitrary names.

Sunday, March 17, 2013

AHAD: Day 45

Day 45: sleep

[Sleep is nice. And I have new sheets which are soft and cozy.]

For the non-imaged:

sleeping is so nice.
i'd love to do it all day,
but i'm not allowed.

I guess it's spring in Charleston now. The weather is warmer and everything has a nice coating of yellow pollen. This spring-like weather means we've been taking more walks, so I've had more opportunities to take pictures. Hopefully my blogposts will be more colorful again!

There are a few ponds where I live with turtles. The one turtle, which may be the largest turtle on the property, has claimed one of the small ponds for himself. He likes to sit on the little bit of land in the middle. I have named it Turtle Island.

Lots of bushes and trees are flowering now. They're pretty and make everything colorful and happy. Lots of these flowering bushes are in the cemetery on Church Street. Here is one so you can see how lovely they are.

We went to the beach this morning and I took lots of random pictures. Most of them were just okay, but a few were nice. This one is my favorite and is now my desktop background.

As always, I took a lot of pictures of the birds. I like the sandpipers. Some were hopping around on one leg for some odd reason.

I wonder if Ohio is still cold. It's only March, so it's likely they will have snow again sometime soon. Hm. I think I'll stick with this warm weather.

AHAD: Day 44

Day 44: beach walking

[We went to the beach today. We walked for 1.5 hours. I am tired now. Also, the water was a bit chilly.]

For the non-imaged:

walking on the beach
is rather enjoyable
but now i'm tired

Friday, March 15, 2013

AHAD: Day 43

Day 43: tau

[Silly tauists. Is that what they are called? I guess the pi-loyalists would be called pi-ists, which is weird. I should stop trying to name groups of people.]

For the non-imaged:

some do prefer tau,
they say it's better than pi.
it's irrational.

Thursday, March 14, 2013

AHAD: Day 42

Day 42: pi

[It is pi day. This is also haiku 42. I feel that works out fine.]

For the non-imaged:

three point one for one
five nine two six  five three five
eight nine dot dot dot

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

AHAD: Day 41

Day 41: gambling

[I sometimes get very sick after eating ice cream. I'm sometimes perfectly fine. I don't understand it. I do, however, usually get somewhat congested after consuming dairy. But I can live with that.]

For the non-imaged:

i am tempting fate
by eating this ice cream now.
so, will i get sick?

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

AHAD: Day 40.5

Day 40.5: oops

[I made things for the next few haiku not realizing I didn't have one scheduled for today. Oops. I didn't want to change the numbering of the later posts... so you get this!]

For the non-imaged:

i messed up counting
so this is just a filler.
hope you enjoy it.

Monday, March 11, 2013

AHAD: Day 40

Day 40: addiction

[I seriously eat too many peanut M&Ms. And Target always offers coupons... so I keep buying them.]

For the non-imaged:

peanut M&Ms
why must you be so tasty?
i'll just have one more.

Sunday, March 10, 2013

AHAD: Day 39

Day 39: game theory

[The little game theory class I'm taking is fun. Everything in it is new to me, which makes it even better.]

For the non-imaged:

playing games for class,
the most fun homework ever.
want to play with me?

Saturday, March 9, 2013

The worst blog post ever

I either have some stomach bug or food poisoning, so I feel awful.
But I felt I should still post something. This is what you get. An alpaca meme.

Friday, March 8, 2013

AHAD: Day 38

Day 38: Recipe

[And that's all there is to baking. I should write a cookbook.]

For the non-imaged:

a little of this
and some of this other stuff,
bake it for a while.

Thursday, March 7, 2013

AHAD: Day 37

Day 37: cold

[While it's not the type of cold where you can't feel your face and you wonder why anyone thought it would be a good idea to settle in such a place... it's still kind of cold.]

For the non-imaged:

i know it's not cold
compared to other places,
but i see my breath.

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

AHAD: Day 36

Day 36: motivation

[I'm beginning to think that life is just a quest for this mysterious thing called "motivation".]

For the non-imaged:

i know i have some,
i just need to apply it
to the proper things.

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

AHAD: Day 35

Day 35: pants

[I hate shopping for pants. I am apparently a shape that doesn't exist in the fashion industry. I would wear more skirts, but then I'd have to find more shoes that I like. Life's just so complicated...]

For the non-imaged:

sizing is a joke
even within the same brand
i should just wear skirts.

Monday, March 4, 2013

AHAD: Day 34

Day 34: happiness

[Everyone has something to be happy about. If you don't think you do, you probably aren't looking in the right place. I have that problem sometimes.]

For the non-imaged:

you can have it, yeah,
but do you know where to look?
most people don't know.

Sunday, March 3, 2013

AHAD: Day 33

Day 33: writing

[I enjoy writing, but it's not an easy thing to do. While finding motivation and inspiration isn't easy, the hardest part is just writing and not caring about how good your writing is. I have a new writing idea and I'm sort of excited about it. I just have to do it now.]

For the non-imaged:

find motivation,
ignore the voices doubting,
and just start working.

Saturday, March 2, 2013

AHAD: Day 32

Day 32: buffer

[I had the idea last weekend to build a several day buffer of haiku. By Tuesday I managed to make enough to last me through Friday. And then I used it all up. I'll try again as it still does seem like a good idea.]

For the non-imaged:

had a good idea
to build up some extra posts
but i used them up.

Friday, March 1, 2013

AHAD: Day 31

Day 31: choices

[And yet I'm so very indecisive. I think it's because I have too many choices. Just think of all the different ways you can write a haiku based on the word time. It's amazing. So many choices.]

For the non-imaged:

i can choose this one
or i can choose the other.
it's all up to me.
