I’m being inundated with eggplant thanks to my CSA. Again. I guess I’ll always expect to just have way too much eggplant this time of year!
I’m with my friends in DTLA and we’re on our way to the beach. Fun! We’d been at the bus stop maybe one minute when a nearly full Gatorade bottle comes flying at us from across the street. It doesn’t hit us, but it rolls into the street by our feet. We look up, see a man staring at us, and move a little ways away.…
My roommate and I are apartment hunting together. I’m ready to be able to have pets. We both want out of a basement...it’s just time to move!
I am a giant mess of pain right now. My entire body hurts.
I’ve had to rely on Uber much more than normal because of my knee. This morning, I had a really gross interacting with a driver. When I got into the car, he commented on how pretty I was, even with my leg in a big brace. I unthinkingly said “thank you,” then took out my phone. After a little while, he started making…
Re: trigger warnings!
I’m incoherent with how much I loved Mad Max, which I finally saw today. I loved it so much, I don’t want to go to sleep lest I stop thinking about it.
I know, I know. Mother’s Day was yesterday. But my mom’s coming to visit me ten days from now (yay) because I need surgery (boo). I figured I could just give her a gift in person instead of shipping it out there.
I’m having a “low self-esteem day” so I’m practicing in some self-care. A hot bath, shaving, giving myself a full manicure with a color I’ve not used yet, and playing with my new makeup while I watch Mulan.
Due to a series of unfortunate events, I didn’t get to eat lunch.
I just drank a lot of wine while waiting for the coconut oil in my hair to soak in (one hour right?). I wasn't intending to drink so much, but it was a dry-sweet blend that was like the grape juice we used to drink for communion at my former church.
I've had to have my hair colored twice in the past 5-ish months - and I believe I'll keep it up because color! But I'm really worried about the damage I'm incurring with the bleach/lighteners. At this point, I think most of my hair has had some kind of color treatment...
I got my hair cut today (and re-dyed), but i asked my stylist how to do a pompadour, for something different - so he taught me and man, I love it.
Good news: it's friday! I have mega-cool plans for the weekend (okay not like going to Paris Mega-Cool or seeing Beyoncé in a concert Mega-Cool but cool for me). I get to see new friends, hang out with people, feel like I have an actual social life...I'm texting with a cute boy who is both a new friend and someone I…
So! I'll be going to Philly in April with my roommate, her boyfriend, and another one of our friends. It'll be fun! We've got a car, and I just secured an AirBnB. We're going to see a play, eat dumplings in Chinatown, check out the Liberty Bell, definitely see Mutter Museum, fight our way through Reading Terminal…
I tried making a refrigerator pie. It did not turn out very well. I think I know where I went wrong but that makes me really angry with myself! I should know better! ARGHHHHH! I mean, it's edible but the texture leaves something to be desired. It should be silky smooth but it's lumpy.
But first! This internet community is awesome. Thanks for listening (and understanding) those feelings I always hesitate to voice out loud in "the meatspace." I love seeing the support everyone has for each other - and I'm really glad to be part of it!
Rambling personal issues ahoy.
