An Old Friend Visits

Yesterday morning I woke up to find my closet door wide open. This may not seem like a big deal to you, but I'm very weird about sleeping with the closet door open. Meaning: I just don't do it. Call me crazy, but there is just something eerie about sleeping with the closet door wide open, you know, because anything could be in there! And it certainly isn't just shoes, clothes or belts. Also, what is possibly more eerie than the closet door being wide open, is turning out the bedroom light only to find that the closet door is shut, but THE LIGHT IN THE CLOSET IS ON! Not only is it on, it's on in a weird, science fiction, spaceship way.

Maybe it's a good thing that I don't watch scary movies.

I usually blame this sort of weird thing on Attic Man, who seems to have visited our new place. While he was here he also got our floor pretty dusty and left a few dishes in the sink. No to mention, put a WHOLE LOAD OF CLOTHES IN THE FLOOR OF MY BEDROOM.

It's not over yet, Attic Man.

Until next time.

I Heart Breakfast Tacos

For real. They make me think deeply. Or maybe they were drugged.

Everything can change in a breath and life is fleeting. These are the truths I'm rediscovering through the crazy ride of moving to Houston. When concentrating on these ideas, I swear to myself that I'll never take things for granted, especially the small things, and I'll think positively. It's just not as easy to be funny when taking it seriously, y'all!! I'll find a balance, don't worry.

There a few things I need to address: this is day 1.5 of living like I'm broke, day 9 of half marathon training, and Netflix finally got wise and came out with an app which will revolutionize my life. Maybe not, but seriously, it's birth was long overdue.

Today was the first day that I walked out side and felt relief and an overall zen feeling. It Was either because it was about 10 degrees cooler or because something big is about to happen. Maybe something big already did happen, when I got two of the most delicious breakfast tacos this morning. And honestly? If that were it, I'd be content.

Until next time!!

Mary Tyler Moore, Please Call Extension 2404

I just ate some bad ass food prepared by my friend, I have two interviews next week, ( "Why am I excited about interviews if I seem to be employed?" you ask. Well, I'm employed as a temp, a temp receptionist, to be exact. I'm temping at a place that someone might call down to reception and ask me to page God, because everyone is a hilarious jokester like that. Ha freaking HA! And there is so much going on, I'd probably page God. But that's due in part to my unshakable work ethic. Either that or my need to play along with jokes. Usually I'm the one on that side of the jokes. Maybe this is a lesson from the cosmos to stop joking with people. It's just really hard to say at this point. Plus, the cosmos is kind of sneaky. (Side point: I am making an effort to actually have and live like I have a decent work ethic. Don't get me wrong, I haven't exactly taken advantage of my employers in the past. I have just done things like emailed excessively, which is just a matter of opinion, and work blogged, which could technically be furthering my potential writing career.....things really become grey that were once black and white if you dissect them enough. It seems like it should work the other way around.....)) I received an awesome care package from my MOM today, which included fancy paperclips (shout out to those of you who share my love of OFFICE SUPPLIES!!) a shirt, mechanical pencils, fruit snacks and a Starbucks card!!! Don't be fooled, I'm 25.

I don't know what could go better with this day. I really don't! I've been needing one of these days, and HERE IT IS! Refreshing. The world isn't out to get me after all, and the Man isn't getting me down, not for now, anyway.

Cheers!!! Until next time!

PS-I really don't know how this post could possibly be considered to be grammatically correct, seeing as the majority of it was a parenthetical side note and/or in parenthesis and/or a side note. Annnnnnnd it just got worse.

Welcome to the Year 2010

No kidding, y'all. I just made a deposit into my bank account with my iPhone while in my dining room. At home. AT. HOME. It's magic. Magic, I tell you.

PS- Wednesday WAS my lucky day. I got a job that day, which I went to today. Posts will no longer include lamentations about being unemployed. Rather, they will include lamentations about being employed. Such is the way of the world.

PPS-it's not a teaching job. But I'm ok with that. I have my whole life to teach. Don't worry, I won't let the dream die. Also, there are probably some school districts around that have restraining orders out for me due to my excessive contacts via phone, email and in person.

Until next time!!

Check and Done

Oh, and my apologies for beginning two posts in a row with "day one of......" Tomorrow will be day two of training and still day one of living like I'm going broke. Why still day one you ask? Because that's whats before day two.


Lucky For You, I'm Unemployed

Day one of the half marathon training has found me! Hello there, day one. I feel as though you signify something lucky. I'm not sure where I get these ideas, but I have a lot of them right now. For example, I found one particular school in Houston that I find appealing. I've convinced myself that I will teach there. Also that they will call me today. It's like the scene in American Beauty when the mom is pep talking herself about selling the house TODAY. I picture myself being less of a tool than her, though. Hopefully.

I really do hope that today is lucky because I definitely shaved with a totally rusty razor this morning. I'll probably get tetanus. I looked in the lucky day handbook and it said that wasn't allowed. Read the handbook, day one of half marathon training. Don't break the rules on me.

Outlook for the day: good, if not lucky. Chance of baking a chocolate cake: 80%. Chance of me posting the clip from American Beauty for you later: 50%.

Until next time!

Day One

Day one of living like I'm going broke. I'm on my way to buying a paper so I can get some COUPONS! I'm excited and I'll keep you posted on the tricks of the trade as I discover them. This is a game; one that I'm going to win.

Until next time!

I'm about two years into a romance with Fall, and my feelings are just getting stronger!! I'm anticipating color changes, crisp mornings and pumpkin spice lattes. I'll never stop falling for Fall. And no matter where I live, I'll never stop buying jackets.

Until next time!
