A really good couch knows just how to greet you when you walk in from a long hard day out in the world. The cushions knows the shape of your body as you sink into the softness. Sometimes, I find that I’m more productive working on my laptop as I’m relaxing on the couch. I love to snuggle up with a blanket on the couch and read a book or get into the rhythm of a crochet session.
I wonder how couches come in handy during psychotherapy. Are you just relaxed enough to share things with your psychiatrist that you normally wouldn’t? Is your mind more able to explore and access your memories, feelings, and thoughts?
This past month I’ve been so active, and I would love to watch a few movies now, but I need to finish some homework. Make some trail mix and popcorn.
I’ve even cancelled my plans to go to San Japan convention this weekend. The convention draws in thousands of people every year. I sewed my own cosplay outfit based on a favorite childhood TV show, Sailor Moon. I was inspired by the quality in of the outfits in this photo:
The circle skirt pattern required a bit of mathematics, but I will fix it for next year.
…but in the meantime, I’m a couch potato working on homework – risk matrices and financial budget sheets. I’ll come back here later and share a few stories when I’m done! 🙂
