This week, I need to pack for my trip next week and scrub out my bathtub. I’ve promised myself I wouldn’t wait to pack until the night before I leave (like I usually do). The actual process of traveling is stressful enough for me; I don’t need to make it any harder on myself.
Thank GOD today is Friday. I finally finished this stupid presentation for one of my classes (it was last night) and I am so glad it’s over. One of the people in my group contributed barely anything to it and kept saying she couldn’t because of work. Like, girl, we’re all busy with work. If you know you can’t hack all…
I legit couldn’t remember what day it was yesterday morning...I was like “it it Wednesday? It better be only Wednesday, I have a presentation Thursday night that I’m not ready for....”
Exactly. I’m not saying she’s a victim here, but people underestimate how some parents are masters at manipulating their own children. Her parents basically said straight-out that they didn’t go to college so they wanted her to. They did it to bolster their own egos and live vicariously though their kid.
OMG SAME. I feel like I can actually....do stuff now.
Flight of the Conchords, a TV show which Clement and Waititi also worked on.
It warms my working-while-going-to-school/neck-deep-in-student-loans one too.
Seriously. I mean, in an ideal world such an expensive phone would be durable enough that you wouldn’t have to....but metal and glass get scratched. It’s just the nature of the materials used.
I almost said “fuck it” and went back to sleep this morning when I saw it was still dark out. If I didn’t have an experiment to do today I would’ve called in sick to work and just come in for my afternoon class, honestly.
I did yoga for an hour yesterday and I can barely walk today. Stupid quads.
I’m not into any TV series at the moment, but I did just watch Mission:Impossible Fallout last night and loved it. (I think Tom Cruise is a fucking weirdo, but I unironically love that series and I watched this one mostly for Simon Pegg and Henry Cavill. God damn, Henry Cavill is handsome.)
Viago, is that you?
I love spring forward. One of the things I hate most about winter is it being dark all the time - dark when I get up in the morning, dark by the time I get home from work. More daylight = happier me.
I’ve never seen the movie, but I remember my Catholic family having the same reaction. I remember my mom briefly seeming interested in seeing it, but when we heard how gruesomely violent it was I think we both felt like the focus on that violence was entirely missing the point of Christ’s story.
Yes! Maps is pretty much the only reason I’m able navigate this city without getting hopelessly lost, even though I’ve lived here a long time.
Dang, your morning sounds like how my week has been going. I took ONE day off from work this week (and it wasn’t even to do anything fun, I sat in lectures for like 6 hours straight, no joke) and I got all these emails going “OMG! CRISIS! Shit’s on fire and we need you to have this done yesterday (because we couldn’t…
I’ll be honest, I’m not great at self-care - I tend to overcommit myself and have a hard time saying “no’. There was a point where I was trying to get through grad school, taking care of my sick mom with no help from my family and constantly worried about money. I got to “shutdown of all brain functions except emergenc…
It is FREEZING here (like -20 windchills AGAIN, that’s enough, winter) but I have class this afternoon so I came in to work for half a day. I’m thanking my lucky stars that I spent so many years not using any of my vacation time, so that now I have more than enough saved up that I can make this nutty class schedule…
Same, after a couple weeks of that playlist I wanted to die. (Actually, their nitpickiness about store displays also made me feel homicidal, but that’s a different story.)
