Hey y’all! Sorry I’m late, I know I promised I would do these on Mondays but life got in the way. This episode was DOPE, so let’s dive in!
As sort-of promised last week, I’m going to start doing recaps of Westworld, hopefully every Monday. I feel like this goes without saying, but here there be spoilers. Also, I’ve literally never done a recap of anything before, so be kind to a gentle Gnome who is just trying her best.
Has anyone watched? I caught the first episode last night and I’m intrigued. The androids are super creepy BUT also sympathetic? And Ed Harris is terrifying. I thought the violence would bother me but it’s done well enough that it’s not horrific. I don’t want to get too spoilery in the OP but let’s talk in the…
Hey y’all! I’m back from Europe and I missed you! I also had my first real therapy session ever yesterday and I am HELLA CRANKY and processing things and I was wondering if any of you have experienced the same feelings after starting something similar. Because hot DAMN am I irritable for seemingly no reason this…
Saturday night, I met up with a dude from OKCupid who I’d been chatting with, kind of against my better judgment. He picked a bar kind of last minute and it was one that’s not super conducive to a first date (people go there to play arcade games so it’s loud).
Hadn’t even had my coffee before a tenant was forcibly hospitalized this morning and punched in the face by an officer after assaulting his partner. Is 10:20 in the morning too early for a drink?
Last week, our interns finished their project and one of the case managers came to the end of her two weeks’ notice. Then my boss, in a brillant move, took this week off. While we’re already short staffed.
A friend of mine (FINALLY) broke up with his girlfriend, who was emotionally terrible and also got physical with him at one point, which is what initiated the breakup.
But I’m planning a tattoo instead! I met with the artist yesterday and forgot a bunch of things so now I have to email him a list. First session in two weeks wheeeeeee!
Because I am a very teary gnome at the moment.
Update: So he may not be a chatty texter, but he texted me this morning before I left my house asking if I wanted to come to his place after we go out tonight, so that I “could have time to prepare”. So because he is an amazing and thoughtful human, I have a change of clothes and dry shampoo in my bag so I can look…
And I’m seeing him again this week! Boy knows what he is doing. Like, really, REALLY knows.
And I can’t drink at work because...well it’s work.
And I am very nervous about it. I can’t disclose details, but one of my supervisees told me something about my boss that is definitely a fireable offense and I told her I would go with her to report it to his bosses tomorrow. I’ve not been sleeping because I’m nervous and I’m not having a nice time at work today. I…
What it says on the tin. Trying to do more creative things while I watch TV/listen to music so my relaxation time still feels productive, and I wanted to make some of my own patterns.
I just watched that Netflix series Love and I have Thoughts.
As some of you may know, I visited my family last week, and my mother was horrible for various reasons. Today I received this card, and I’m not sure how to feel:
Back in the land of civilization so I celebrated with a bagel and a coffee and SILENCE. My chubby ass is just fine, now that it’s away from the 24-hour fat-shaming.
