I use the list form when I’m too lazy to work everything into one cohesive storyline. And this post is only because I’m bored on my lunch break and figured I needed a bit of an update over here. So here are some things I’m thinking of.
-I’ve been missing Europe a lot lately. I need to get back. I also need a travel partner… Wanderlust has got its claws in me deep and if I don’t go somewhere new in the next few months or so I’m going to start crawling out of my skin… Places I’d like to go to include: LA (again), Paris (again), London (again), Venice (never been), Singapore (never been), China (one of those all inclusive tour things, also never been), Vegas (again), San Francisco (never been).
-I GOT AN APARTMENT!!! …well, kinda. My roommate and I found a decently priced apartment in one of the complexes that is all-inclusive, allows pets, is only a 15 minute drive to either of our jobs, and has a pool. That’s enough checks off my list, methinks. However, we haven’t been able to actually SEE the apartment yet, since people are still living in it. We’ve seen a sample apartment and our friend lives on site and showed us her apartment and it impressed us a lot. So, when the current tenants move out March 1st, we can view the actual space. Until then, we have a deposit on it. REJOICE.
-Not sure if I should start furniture/apartment shopping NOW or wait until we have the place. Either I have more time to look but potentially don’t have a place if the apartment itself ends up being crap, or I have very little time if we wait until March. Hmm…
-The play went well, and I’m getting more and more excited for the next one coming up. Treasure Island = Pirates. It’s going to be fun
-My gym closed. So now I’m looking for a new one, yet again. Helloooo again, bubble butt, what’s up?
-I should be getting my tax refund any day now and it’s making me antsy that it’s supposedly been deposited, yet there is no extra money in my account. Though it’s a small refund, I already have it all figured out. 3/5ths is going into savings (how long it will actually STAY there is anyone’s guess), 1/5th will go to my credit card payment, and the last 5th will be combined with a gift card I have for a little shopping spree. There are some boots I got my eye on…
-Somehow I’m having an epic acne breakout circa 2003. Oy vey. Thankfully I’ve never been much of a pizza face, but when I do break out it’s big gross red welts. It’s lovely. I feel quite pretty indeed.
-Since my accident in December (falling down the stairs and busting my ankle, leaving me immobile for a few days and limping for more), I haven’t been wearing heels much. As a fairly short person who wishes to be tall, I usually wear heels almost daily. But for sake of my continued desire to walk normally, I have been mostly confined to wearing my Uggs and various flat shoes I own. Today, I decided to pull out the ankle boots. The result? I apparently have forgotten how to walk in heels. I feel like a drunk baby Bambi taking his first steps.
-I am seriously addicted to Showtime’s Shameless. I don’t even remember where I heard about it, but I started watching the first season three nights ago and am already almost done with it. It’s just such a perfect ensemble drama, with just the right amount of comedy. I am completely floored at how well William H. Macy and Joan Cusak play their characters!–though I do suppose it IS easier to play weirdos than “normal” people, but still! And all of the kids in it are fantastic. I can’t decide if I want to write for this show or BE IN IT (I usually have one of those two reactions when watching a show I love). I know, I know, it’s a remake of a British one, but still! And I fully intend on watching the British one when I’m done with this, promise.
-I’ve been feeling really nostalgic lately. There’s a lot of people I miss from my past I guess. Trying not to let it get to me, and I’m not entirely sure why I’m suddenly feeling sad about it when I’ve been pretty good lately. Facebook maybe? Sure, let’s blame Facebook. I should just get over my phone fear and make some phone calls and lunch dates. Or something. Or once I move into my new apartment offer old friends free dinner if they come over for catching up. I do have quite a lot of recipes to try out…
Baked mac and cheese with the ritz cracker crust and three layer peanutbutter brownies for you if you visit me, promise.
