My Rebound

Pandora Radio knows how indecisive I am. Over the past months, I find myself jumping quickly from song to song hitting the next button every few seconds. I don't even bother with the thumbs up or thumbs down because I feel resentful that in this stage of of the relationship, we are still playing this get to know you game. I can't commit and I know it is not healthy for either one of us. It goes kind of like this for me and Pandora.

Dear Pandora, the truth is you are my rebound. I really miss Jay's cool music taste. Love, Me

My fickle relationship with Pandora seems to be a good analogy for my head right now that jumps all over the place and can't seem to focus for long unless I am writing. And without Jay, my playlist or my to-do list is a little lacking.

Life seems to be one way or the other in this in-between place. What seemed like a good idea five minutes ago, seems likes a horrible idea now.  "I feel OK" is hit by a wave that I did not see coming. A sad Facebook post needs to be followed by a happy Facebook post. 

"How are you doing?" is answered usually with "ups and downs."

I am spilt between wanting to be more honest and feeling afraid I have said too much.

At 2PM going out with friends sounds fun but thank goodness someone told me a few months ago that game time decisions are always acceptable so by 6PM, I sometimes change my mind.

I don't want to talk about it or I do want to talk about it and usually I prefer just to write about it.

 I say "I've got this" and I have no idea what I am doing or where I am going.

A good morning turns into a hard afternoon.

I go to bed exhausted but lie in bed wide awake.

I like being around people but I need more time alone.

I write often and share it but I am hesitant to call myself a writer although I think that is what writers do?

Maybe all the blame is not Pandora's. Maybe it is just me trying to find my station but I am distracted by the static.

I think I am going to break up with Pandora and give Spotify a try.

This song is dedicated to Pandora. I know Jay would call it "bubble gum pop crap" but I like it because everybody needs a Fight Song
