I feel un-fun.  Until that subsides, enjoy this video.


1.  Today, I worked the latest I’ve worked since high school, 7:15.  Wednesday I’m working until 8:30, which just seems ridiculous.  Could be worse, though.  Friday I only work from 11:45 to 5:45.  I’m pumped.

2.  Some people are just miserable to talk to on the phone.  I understand you might not want to talk to me or you’re busy or whatever, but I’m just trying to help you out.  I would never be that rude to someone on the phone when they’re just doing their job.  But that’s because I’m an intelligent, rational person who’s accepted that my issue probably isn’t directly your fault.

3.  Talking on the phone allows me much more opportunity to make an idiot out of myself.  Today, I was talking to someone named Patrick and asked him if he was getting excited about his holiday this weekend (i.e. St. Patrick’s Day).  Either he didn’t get it or he’s heard it too many times, but dude was not impressed by my attempt at humor.  He did, however, find it hilarious when I uncomfortably tried to cover my track of embarrassment.  GAH.

4.  The new tag suggestions on here are so ridiculous.  They’re rarely related to anything I’ve said.

1.  I panic at least once a day at my new job.  This is the first job I’ve ever had that has goals and numbers set for each person, and I’m such a freaking perfectionist/crazy person that I constantly criticize my performance and make myself super depressed.  I’m stopping this tomorrow.  It’s driven me to tears a minimum of 3 times, more like 5+ if I’m honest.  I’ve had nightmares about it and wake up crying. That’s not okay.  I think I just feel like everything else is so out of control that I put all the pressure into this one thing that I feel like I can control, but the action itself keeps me from being in control.  Like I said, crazy person.  Feel free to leave comments with tips on how to be less ridiculous.  ANYWAY.  Tomorrow, it’s all sunshine and unicorn glitter.

2.  I did very little this weekend.  That made me feel like I had enough time to bake, so I made Barbecue Chicken Pasta and Chocolate Cobbler.  Yum.  Then I started Insanity again because I’m pretty sure I’m about to gain 400 pounds.

3.  I woke up to about 5 glorious inches of snow.  The only way I could have been more pleased was if we didn’t have to go into work.  Too bad, we did.  At least we have a great view of it.

4.  I’m seriously about to go do some research on how to be an adult.  I just don’t think I have a grip on this.  Oh well.

Right now, I’m laying on my couch wrapped in my Hello Kitty blanket with a kitty sleeping on my legs, gazing out at the snow that Mother Nature sent us to apologize for the ridiculous tornado-filled weather she screwed us over with this week.  Basically, bliss.

1.  I woke up to no running water this morning.  I bathed using  a moist towelette.  I’m classy like that.  Now my water runs, but so does my toilet.   Some days you just can’t win.

(ETA: I fixed that damn thing after about 2 hours.  Even my plumber father didn’t think I could do it, but I did.  BOOYAH!)

2.  Last week, I made Rummy Gummy bears (gummy bears that soaked in rum all week).   They proved to be a powerful enemy, as I woke up Saturday with a raging hangover that refused to depart until Sunday morning.

3.  I finally got my hair cut for the first time since May, and, for the second time in the past 2 years, I had to come home and cut it more because hairstylists sometimes refuse to listen.  When I say 3 inches then you double check with me and I STILL say “Yes, 3 inches.  I promise,”  I MEAN 3 inches.  NOT 2, 3!  And when say I want long layers, I mean I want long layers (à la “The Rachel”), not that I want a range of an eighth of an inch between my layers.  I don’t know what else I can do to communicate with these people.

4.  I told myself that I would start Insanity again in February.  There are two more days in the month and I still can’t find the time/motivation.

5.  There are no pictures in this post.  I just don’t feel like finding any.

Just one more college grad looking to share my new adventures. No specific purpose, just a mix of any and all creative hobbies that I can get my hands on.
