Well, aside from the huge news of me going to visit the Junkers this week - basically it's all school. That's all I do with my life. I go to work, I tutor, I housesit, I go to school. Aaanndd.... I spill mass quantities of vegetable soup in my car. Seriously, it smells disgusting in there. Luckily, when I turn on the air conditioning it temporarily airs it out for that particular ride.
So... I bought an iPad. I'm actually typing this post on said iPad. Most of me thinks it's awesome and the other 30% of me is like YOU'RE PAYING FOR SCHOOL. WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU SPEND HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS ON AN IPAD? My therapist and I spent our last session discussing my impulses and whether or not this actually is one. The results were inconclusive.
It's football season.
Which is magnificent.
I live for football.
I was raised in a manner that means from September to February, if there's a football game on tv, it's on MY tv. It relaxes me, for some reason. I should analyze the cost benefits between Xanax and a cable bill.
We got new sticky notes at work.
I know, it sounds super lame, but they're the accordion kind that are all connected in opposite direction so they're like the slinky of sticky notes. I can just sit at my desk and play with them for a concerning amount of time. Mary hates them because she'll go to pick one up and the whole stack will follow and then fall off of her desk. But I think they're awesome.
I've decided to start something new.
(Keep in mind that I often make promises I can't keep because I'm bipolar (quite literally) and often TOTALLY BELIEVE that I can do something and then it just never gets done.
But here's what I'm planning on doing, right at this moment:
I'm going to make a new little tab at the top of the blog and in it I'm going to put "WHAT I'M READING".
I'm going to try to update it every week with whatever I've been reading that week.
You may end up getting three weeks of the same book, or maybe it will be about whatever I had to read for school. If it's been a particularly busy week you might even end up getting something from the back of a cereal box. Only time will tell.
So yeah, that's what I'm going to try to do, just for some variety. I may or may not let you know in this normal part of the blog whether or not I've updated the reading page, or maybe I won't. Haven't thought that far ahead. I also don't know how interesting the books I'll be reading will be. Hopefully I'll be able to MAKE them interesting, even if they aren't. You know me, I'm a good storyteller. I'll make it work.
So what do you guys think? Good idea?
(ALSO: Junkers, I'll be there for the premier. You can count on it. 6ish okay?)
So, summer has begun and.... now I am very boring.
I just work full time in the summer. In an office. I wear pencil skirts and bring my lunch to work everyday. It's all very adult and unexciting. This is summer as an adult.
This means that if I'm going to keep any of you guys interested I'm going to have to break into the archives...
I honestly can't think of anything right now but I promise that when something comes to me I will write it down and let you guys know as soon as possible.
