Restlessness and Insomnia Induced Rambling

Well, I'm at it again. I've recently found falling asleep one of the most difficult things to do. So here I am, laying in bed, writing, instead of sleeping. My recent acquisition of internet at home now makes it possible to blog, instead of doing nothing but making pictures in the ceiling popcorn as I fight insomnia.

Something I've been thinking about more and more lately is just how excited I am to get married. July 25th seems so far off right now (162 days away, sad day). there is just so much I'm looking forward too. Living with Dani is one of the major things for me right now. It's got so many benefits: financially, we'll be, at least marginally, better off (instead of paying for two different apartments, two sets of groceries, etc...). I'm very much looking forward to being able to come home after a long day of school and/or work and have her waiting for me.

The planning is becoming increasingly stressful and strenuous, but things are coming along. One of the more exciting parts of the whole wedding thing is that I'll be able to go back to Ecuador again. I feel this pull to get out and away from everything lately. Not permanently, but I feel the need to travel. I want to get out of all the "normal", daily stuff surrounding me and just let myself go and immerse myself in a "foreign" place again.

That's pretty much all I've got for now. Since it's almost midnight and I should probably at least try to fight this sleeplessness better.

I'll leave you with this "final thought" (a la Jerry Springer) from a Starbucks cup. I found it interesting and intriguing.

"The irony of commitment is that it’s deeply liberating – in work, in play, in love. The act frees you from the tyranny of your internal critic, from the fear that likes to dress itself up and parade around as rational hesitation. To commit is to remove your head as the barrier to your life."- Anne Morriss

Keep on fighting the good fight ;)
