eurotrip part een

I know you’ve all been waiting with bated breath for me to regale you with tales of my travels… [and eyes roll around the world] I had a later start to my vacation, as I had planned to leave work at 3pm, I didn’t in fact leave until 5pm.  That damn work thing always gets …

three days away

I am three days away from boarding a plane to Amsterdam! I can’t even tell you how excited I am and how I’ve been waiting for this vacation.  Over a drunken dinner, three ladies said they were going to plan a trip to Amsterdam and Paris, and by golly, within 2 weeks, they chose the …

mid-week randoms

Update on my online class.  So far, I am enjoying it.  We are in our third week of lectures and reading.  The video lectures are posted online every Sunday evening and are broken into two sections.  Each section contains 5 or 6 separate videos that are roughly 15 mins in length, so it makes it …

mid-july randoms

I was finally able to find a maxi-dress that was just right.  I’m short, like 5’2/5’3…most maxi-dresses are too long and I’d wind up tripping over the hem.  I finally found one that hits perfectly at my ankle while I am wearing flats!  Thank you, J.Crew. I had a great night out with bestie and …

confession #2: my body image

My next confession: I’m not happy with my appearance. I actually had to think about how I wanted to phrase that.  I thought “I don’t like the way I look”, “I hate my body”, “I don’t think I’m pretty”.  Those all seemed so harsh.  It’s not that I am completely displeased with how I look, …

the next stop on emotional rollercoaster…grieving

I have two sides.  First and foremost, I am analytical.  Very logical and practical.  Secondly, I am emotional.  When it comes to people or causes I care deeply about, I am hyper-emotional.  I cry, I lash out. For much of this week, it has been mostly the analytical side of me that has been in …

update…

So, I guess I start with the good news???? I lost 5 pounds. (doesn’t sound like much, but is on a little 5’2″ body) My apartment is spotless. My DVR is empty. How did the aforementioned happen?, you may ask (or not, but I’m gonna tell you anyway). When I am sad/upset, I lose all …

countdown commences

I had been putting if off for too long.  It was something I needed to face.  Something that needed be out in the open.  Something that I simply couldn’t ignore any longer. I stepped on the scale this morning. Cue the screaming. The number that was displayed wasn’t horrific.  It was actually one pound less …
