Some Sunday Updates

Busy weekend! On Friday I worked 8am-5pm (YAWN) and then hung out with a friend from college. We got dinner at a Thai restaurant and then strolled around my neighborhood for a while. It wasn't supposed to be a date, but somehow it started to feel like he wanted it to be one. I don't think I'm interested, and managed to keep things in the Friend Zone for the time being, but....I guess, stay tuned. Then on Saturday I worked at the food bank downtown for a few hours before meeting up with my friend for a study sesh (mostly we just complained the whole time, but I got SOME work done). Then I headed out to another friend's apartment for a girls' night in - dinner, wine, and Good Will Hunting. I may have cried during the "IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT, WILL" scene. Toldja I was feeling emotional.


Then I paid for all that playtime today, which I spent entirely doing homework and chores (grocery store, three loads of laundry, and vacuuming), but it was totally worth it. I know that I'm in a good place mentally and emotionally when I actually WANT to be social and see my friends and have fun, so I try to go with it as much as possible.

Busy week as usual coming up. Class, work, meetings, more work, etc. For those of you keeping track, my tally is now up to five of eleven applications submitted, so I'm slowly chipping away at that.

Oh! The most exciting part of my life these days is that Homeland is back! I love this show. It rivals The Wire and the original Law and Order (none of that SVU nonsense) as one my all-time favorites.

Other random stuff I am currently obsessed with:
- Taylor Swift. Go ahead and judge me, I literally do not care. Haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate.
- Wine. Remember how I used to not drink calories? Well, I am all about the wine these days. It totally chills me out and is an awesome way to get in an extra one or two hundred calories at the end of the day when I'm tired and don't feel like eating. It is ALSO an awesome way to gauge whether or not I've eaten enough that day, because if not then one glass gets me a little drunk.
- My new iPhone. I am in love. I'm still kind of a newb with it and this autocorrect bullshit drives me nuts, but I swear, just having it in my pocket makes me like 50X cooler than I was a month ago.

so slick, so suave

Okey doke, this turned out more random than I had intended. Also I am hungry and, as I am finally beginning to accept six years after leaving home, dinner does not make itself. Peace, everyone.


  1. Taylor Swift is my guilty pleasure
    I think she is awesome
    He songs are catchy
    Her lyrics are clever
    And she is just super cute

    Glad to read that things are going well for you
    God knows you deserve it x

    1. she is the best! so so cute.

      and thanks, it means a lot!!

  2. I have never seen Homeland but everyone talks about how good it is, so I need to check it out sometime. I'm glad you were able to go out and have some fun - that is always important, especially when life is so busy! :) I love taylor swift too and I think we all need a little taylor in our lives :)

    1. It really is a great show! Action-packed, but also super smart and human. The mental illness aspect of it is also handled well, I think.
