I have been shamelessly
listening to Jason Derulo’s “Ridin Solo.” Embarrassed? Absolutely not.
Apologies and steps
The past 24 hours have been so weird in the best (and most eye opening) kind of ways. One day I’ll write about my experience yesterday, but for now I’m still processing. Instead, I’m going to focus on today. I woke up this morning after having an amazing dream about flying and swimming. I have those dreams often. I dream about swimming fast and flying through the air. I dream...
Moving along. Organically.
Best OkCupid message I have ever gotten
“I don’t know how to not come off creepy about this, because I feel creepy anytime I message a girl on here, but I’d totally be down to give you a foot massage. You can “reply very selectively” to this, but it’s a free foot massage…I don’t see what’s not to like.” I thought my response was pretty good: “Ah, I reply selectively?...
Teaneck, you know.
So, I’m working on a short story. I have been working on short stories about new jersey. I started writing a somewhat autobiographic short story about my experience at teaneck high school. Basically — it sucked to be white. I know that sounds ridiculous. White privilege, white guilt, white power. But, through the years of talking with some of my white friends, we all felt like...
Just this song
is so good. I mean of course I just love bon iver. But I really enjoy the vocals and layers and musical shifts. The lyrics are really beautiful. Just had to share. Jesus look at me, tumbling this much. I used to rarely use tumblr. I guess dats what happens when you work an office job.
Oh my god yes →
on the right said of the bed this morning. I think it’s because I ended my night right — cuddling with the roomies and debriefing about my latest date. Comparing leg hairs and feeling so comfortable with these people I just met 2 months ago. My day starts right too, The-Dream + Beyonce + Sleigh Bells are great to listen to while walking to work. Gonna meet some professional football...
Anthropology of dating deal breakers
Yesterday I went on a date. Let me know if you agree or not. Deal breakers Lack of communication that he/she will be 45 minutes late Texting/calling/not paying attention to the road when driving your date Throwing money at cashiers as if they are scum Flipping strangers off (without any provocation) Not asking your date if it’s OK to take them somewhere else after the first part of...
Just had to share that
you know you’re a priss when you puke because your roommate’s shirt smells THAT bad.
Going from a long term relationship to the dating scene/meeting new people has been an extreme culture shock. It’s a different way to see myself; to recognize what qualities people notice first about me. It’s refreshing. A new perspective.
I know I'm supposed to live simply
But yay or nay on riding boots?
It’s been more likely that I have my elbows on my desk, my hands on my face, and I ask myself, “How am I going to do this?”
When I woke up this morning, I thought, “Thank God it’s Saturday so I can sleep more.” I was very disappointed when I realized it was Tuesday. I don’t know if I’ve been so tired because of sleep or because of the detox my housemates and I are on. I’m convinced I’m not getting enough calories, but, I don’t even feel like eating all the time. I’m...
