Let’s Try Something New: SOCS

I’ve seen a few bloggers do this (Jenn, Dutch, Fadra) so I thought I would give it a try… and who doesn’t need a good brain dumping now and again, eh? Here goes…
Ok so I’m hoping my timer actually works because I dropped it just as I was about to begin typing.  Plus it’s ancient and I never use it anymore because I have the handy one that comes on my stove.  I guess we shall see! 
Today I’ve been up since about 5:30am – yes it is a Sunday and no I did not have to work.  I tried to go back to sleep, it just wasn’t going to happen today.  So I got up and made some quiche and then started my day…
If you didn’t know, it is national Cancer Survivor’s Day and I donated my FB status to SU2C/Livestrong in honor of the day.  Then I decided cancer needed just a bit more a$$ kicking and I made up the team logo for the 3 Day and flyers for our upcoming event Grillin for the Girls.  Take that cancer! And as my lovely cousin so wisely put it in her status: Suck it cancer!  And now it is not even 2pm and I feel like I’ve been very productive – GO ME!
What else is on my mind… oh let’s see… a little thing called GRAD SCHOOL.  Do I want to do it?  Do I not?  And if I do, what for?  How can I make that happen with a FT job?  And then there is the WHERE question… perhaps the biggest one of all…
And with that my friends we have the buzzer… hmmm maybe my brain needs more than 5 minutes to fully dump?  Or perhaps I just need more practice… either way – Happy Cancer Survivors Day to all my fellow survivors out there!  Oh and if you didn’t know… yesterday was Hug Your Cat Day.. so make sure to hug your feline friend!

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

  • Set a timer and write for 5 minutes only.
  • Write an intro to the post if you want but don’t edit the post. No proofreading or spellchecking. This is writing in the raw
  • Link up by clicking on the button below! 


  1. Usually I need more than 5 minutes for my brain dump too. (Today was a strange day for me.) I am *SO* behind you in the Grad School thing. Go for it! While it doesn't seem like the time is there now, many schools have a lot of options as far as schedules... and when it's something that's important to you, you find the time for it! (Which by the way, training for the 3day totally falls in that same category! AWESOME that you are doing that!!)

  2. Yay! Welcome aboard the SOCS train, Christina!! ;0)

    I agree ... my brain often needs more than five minutes to dump! But it's so fun to do! I actually look forward to it every week!

    And I will make sure to give my cats a hug ... !! !

  3. I might have to admit that sometimes I write for SIX minutes. Shhhh. Don't tell anyone. I love the energy on your blog. Looking forward to coming back. Thanks for joining in the fun!
