Scholar. Dreamer. Giggler. Not necessarily in that order. 

Steamboat Friday

Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those, who do not write, compose, or paint can manage to escape the madness, the melancholia, the panic fear, which is inherent in a human condition”- Graham Greene

Precisely why I felt the need to create this blog! With a lifetime’s worth of experience being a serious faced worry wart that never liked losing control, I struggle with positive thinking and simple relaxation. I used to think it is pretty pathetic that I always had to make a very hard effort to ‘have fun’ and ‘act silly’ when letting loose comes as second nature to most people. But, it seems I’m aging backwards and finally learning to let go. Steamboat Friday is a project to help me and everyone else who comes across my posts, in concentrating on the lighter aspects that represent the Friday like feeling. Even a Monday can feel like a Friday, after all its only a matter of convincing the a-hole brain 😉

(Steamboat is my favorite drink and reminds me of love, happiness and some of the happiest moments of my life.)

  1. Thanks for following my blog Evolution of a Woman. I’m telling you now that I am stealing the phrase – “I’m aging backwards and finally learning to let go.” Because that is exactly what I am going through myself. Lol I’m glad I am not the only one. But I am having fun in the process. My friends are slowing down and I just got started. Cheers!

    1. Haha you must be the world’s first thief admitting theft! I get what you mean and honestly, I rather be aging backwards now because you really need a lighter perspective when life starts getting more serious. Although I wouldn’t wish my “old soul” childhood on any kid :S I love it when my friends tell me that I’ve changed and they don’t quite understand it, I can almost see envy in their eyes. Lets stay crazy 😉

      1. Well, I’m honest to a fault. But I agree, and for me it has been the serious things in life that have helped me to “lighten” my perspective. And you are talking about “old soul” childhood, my friends used to call me “grandma” in high school. In college, I was the only 21 year old fully dressed at the club. But now, like you, I get the same comments and looks from my friends who have a hard time keeping up with me. Here’s to being crazy and LIVING!!!!
