Today I’m a Couch Potato

Linda G Hill – Couch

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! πŸ™‚

        You’re welcome! I’m interested to see what you do with the costume!

  2. You have to make yourself comfortable when you are studying! πŸ˜€

    1. theresaly520 says:

      Agreed – I found out this fact through trial and error! πŸ™‚

  3. TheReverist says:

    Aha, you like cosplay, that’s a very dedicated hobby πŸ™‚ Interesting. I always love being a couch potato but can hardly be these days πŸ˜€

    1. theresaly520 says:

      Cosplay does take a bit of time, but the experiences I share with my mom sewing helps speed up the process! It’s interesting, though not suprising, to me that being a couch potato might be a desire for many who lead busy lives

      1. TheReverist says:

        It’s amazing sewing your own costume! Hmm, the kids I know (I don’t mean you’re a kid) simply buy or get them tailor made.

        1. theresaly520 says:

          Yeah! It’s always a lot of fun to make my own stuff. DIY all the way. I think a lot of kids today have different things on their plate that makes them want to simplify their life.

    1. theresaly520 says:

      Favorite couches are the best! πŸ™‚ Thank you Winnie! I’ve been meaning to take pictures of my sewing and crochet projects. Hopefully soon, as I just completed a blue ascot.

    Homework sounds THRILLING! πŸ˜‰

    A good couch is an essential home furnishing! πŸ™‚

    1. theresaly520 says:

      🀣 Yes, it’s a necessity like eating broccoli when you’d rather have a cake. The time invested should save me some time, money, and headaches in the future.πŸ˜€

      I do wonder about the history of couches now. How styles have developed over time…πŸ™‚

      1. Lwbut says:

        I suppose not too long ago (few centuries) couches would be the reserve of the rich.

        Mass production has probably brought about some changes! πŸ˜‰
