So, I'm having a hell of a week at work and I need to vent. This is long and I'm sorry, but no one's around and I'm a mess.
I came in for an oil change, but I had a suspicion that my brakes were in need of service, so I printed out my 50% off brake pads coupon and went in. Sure enough! My pads were worn and the rotor needed to be replaced. I've had this car for 5 years and have never serviced the brakes (not a car person, no idea what's…
This is long and pointless, which is why I'm posting to my personal blog. I hope someone reads it, though probably no one will.
Groupthink, please settle this argument*. Which is cuter? The quoakka:
It's been a helluva week, and I need some positivity, so I'm going to spend my last week of summer vacation doing things I've been putting off for ages. I have on project in particular that I need help with, so I figured I'd crowdsource some ideas because I have no idea what I'm doing. #notcrafty
Hi! I'm sending out a call for advice, as my Googling is revealing little and no one answered me on TripAdvisor.
I'm watching Chopped, as I am wont to do when there's nothing else on, and I've noticed that there are always more male contestants than female. Today, for some reason, I wondered if others had noticed, or if it was my imagination, so I took to Google.
I'll be quick, because I have to leave for work.
I teach middle school, and while the age group can be challenging, I find that I enjoy them. I'm goofy with them, serious with them when I need to be, and my jokes always seem to "land" with them (which makes me a little sad but that's for another post).
My second year at my last job was an absolute nightmare. It felt like everything that could go wrong, went wrong. Miscommunications, accusations, and absolute madness. It sucked, and I couldn't get out of there fast enough.
TW: depression, ED, and a lot of TL;DR.
After more than a month of doctors throwing their hands up in confusion and no relief whatsoever, a doctor has finally listened to me, taken my ankle pain seriously even though nothing obvious was on the tests, and given me some answers. So now I get to rock this baby for a month:
Already done: lemon cupcakes waiting to be frosted with lavender icing (haven't made it yet, any suggestions?). Baking ATM: lemon lavender coconut cookies — which have the added benefit of being low-carb because I used coconut flour and coconut flakes. I don't know why but I want everything to be flavored with lemon…
Seriously, I think at this point the universe is just fucking with me. That's the only logical (?) explanation. I want to scream. I would drink if I didn't drink yesterday and have plans to drink tomorrow.
I am overwhelmed.
On Thursday I was going to a doctor's appointment, and GPS led me abysmally astray. I called the office and they gave me turn-by-turn directions to get to the real office. On this strange road in a town I've never been in, I saw an old abandoned hospital:
I'm so sorry for the Debbie Downer post, but I just got some news and I'm abysmally saddened by it.
I was away for a while, but now I'm home. I'm exhausted. I think I busted my ankle while I was away and had to keep walking on it, so now that I don't have adrenaline to rely on it's starting to really hurt. I'm so tired I'm almost light-headed. In my exhaustion I may have shared information that wasn't mine to…
I had a very bizarre dream last night... I won't go into most details, but one stood out to me. In my dream, I had a note left from someone who I know is named "Blanche". The note was signed "Bianca".
