I was going to post this in worst things but I can't compare.
I'm getting on a plane tomorrow to go see a bunch of friends I haven't seen in 2 years or so. In that span of time I've gained, 40? 50? lbs. Something like that. Part of me doesn't want to go due to that but I know they'll be ok, I'm just afraid. And my husband and I were looking at an all vegan vacation which sounds so awesome but then what if we get there and people are like "you can't be vegan, you are fat". I mean it isn't a health centered vacation, just vegan but you never know.

My bright light is next week I get to see pandacookie, Jilly and possibly lycophyte.

So, I did not end up accomplishing any unpacking at all! Instead I went out and bought myself a pair of cowboy boots and got a third septum ring put in.

I've come to accept the fact that self-care for me is buying myself things. I actually feel somewhat accomplished which is funny because I literally did nothing that was not frivolous!

And damn I look good.


I am so the same way. Retail therapy. It makes me feel guilty, though, because I'm not always financially stable (even though I only do it when I am financially stable). I actually used it as a bargaining tool with myself when I was signing up for my yoga challenge (which was $88). I was having a hard time justifying it, even though I could afford it, and I looked myself in the mirror and just said, 'You are going to spend that amount of money on clothes one day this month when you're feeling down. Why not spend it on something that might actually better your life for once?' Which is all bullshiitake, really, it's not like buying clothes when I'm feeling down makes me a bad person, I just feel guilty about it sometimes because I get so anxious about money. But the shaming worked, and sign up for yoga I did!

Also, I'm feeling really good today. I mean, my body feels like I've been shoved through a sieve (because of the yoga), but I feel good. I had a really awesome, laid back night with T, and I felt really close to him and loved. We just drank wine and watched tv, but there was a closeness that I've been missing. Also feeling rather accomplished and proud of myself in general. Rare these days, so I'm going with it!

Going to go to a Tupperware party being held by one of my ex-colleagues tonight and I'll see all my old female colleagues. I don't know how to feel about it. This job loss felt a lot like being dumped from a long-term relationship, and I'm finally starting to see I can be happy elsewhere. I was forking devastated for the whole summer over how my end there played out, and how unethical it was, and I was really hurt by how my colleagues didn't seem to give a shiitake that I was being treated so poorly by the company. I mean, of course they didn't REALLY care, it wasn't their life, but...I did work with them for a long time, and many of my closest colleagues basically just turned their back on me, even though my contract not being renewed was not my fault.

And I recently saw some of the work coming out of the department (graphic design) and it is objectively forking AWFUL. Weird type spacing, horrible amateur-looking graphics, typos all over the place.

I guess the reason I want to go is to confirm to myself that I am probably better off where I land next.

FINALLY. It's been 7 weeks to the day since we woke up to news that biker boy's house had been burglarized. The damage has been repaired, some updates have been made, the house has been emptied and cleaned and (woohoo!) is on the market. Now here's hoping it sells. Quickly would be good.

Ah lutin. I'm really sorry for your loss, but relieved for all of you too, though that sounds so weird to say. I hope you're doing okay.

I talked to her publicist's assistant and she told me to email her and then a few hours later she emailed back and said she's not going interviews right now. Oh well.

I just randomly decided to look up my old high school to see what's going on there. There have been so many changes (staff-wise and also building construction-wise) since I graduated. I hated school (HATED it!) and never wanted to look back, but for some reason seeing all the changes makes me feel really sad and nostalgic. Why am I having emotions?

I was so nervous! I have interviewed one kind of famous person before for the same website this would have been for, but waaaay less famous and I am just an occasional freelancer who doesn't know what she's doing...

Maybe I'll get her someday.

UGhhhh. I'm using randomofo.com still to search for some cool new blogs to read. And it just led me to a pretty horrible thinspiration blog that is, well, no fun. Like worse than that awful dragonfly website and its ilk I used to stare at. Not going to be a good night.

I ate the best seitan at Kaya's. And now I think I could singlehandedly force a submarine to come up for air.

When I was 14, I had a teacher who asked us to name our favorite and second favorite animal and describe why we liked them.

You should totally spend a few minutes thinking about yours now and write it down before clicking the spoiler for what it all means.

Spoiler: show
I picked a tiny, brightly colored quick moving humming bird for number one and a giant, black, muscley, smooth and silky snake for the second. After he listened to what we had picked he told us that the favorite represented how we saw ourselves and the second how we saw our ideal partner. I swear he thought I was taking the peas out of him and already knew about the test, because I spent a really really really long time going on about how much I love giant snakes.


That test is still accurate :)

That's hilarious for mine too because mine are very similar animals with similar reasons why I like them both. #homo

Ha--I couldn't think of a second animal... Sounds about right.

I'm not sure I can pick a favorite or second favorite, but right now I'm really into banana slugs and uh... http://www.environmentalgraffiti.com/ne ... anana-slug

I couldn't think of a second either.

I'm at the airport on my way to visit (non-vegan) friends. I forgot to grab bars on my way out the door which means I don't have that security blanket food item for being stuck. I'm irrational because 2 others are vegetarian/vegan leaning. We are also going to be in a metropolitan area.
