DEFINITELY LOOK AT THIS! It’s AWE-SOME. #
I just walked up to my student worker’s computer. She was looking at the classifieds for employment. I wanted to be like, OH HEY REMEMBER YOU HAVE A JOB? AND YOU’RE CURRENTLY AT IT?
If I were single and on the Bachelor
And Ben (or whomever the Bachelor was) went skinny dipping with some chick, I’d be on the first plane out of there. That shit is skanky.
Being considerate is when your spouse buys you some nighttime tea because he knows you sleep terribly and maybe it will help. Love is when he makes it for you because you feel like crap and are too lazy to make it for yourself. Marriage a mixture of being considerate and a lot of love.
Higher education is not a luxury. It’s an economic imperative that every family...– President Obama speaking in Michigan today about his plans to make college more affordable (via barackobama) THIS. THIS is what I believe in. This is why I work so hard at my job. Because many of the people I help are the lucky ones who actually get to go to college. They’re the ones who...

I would love to adopt a pet and in fact, have tried to get a cat and was rejected based on the fact that I hadn’t be in the area long enough!! Pet rescuers need to GET IT TOGETHER!! - j
Tumblrs: Some of the coolest people I've never met...
Am I right?
Smoky eye tutorial from Refinery29. It’s very good, I think I finally get it. (reposting with the video on this site, woo woo!) - j
I've become really good at looking like I'm paying...
But I’m not really paying attention at all. I think it’s because I’m so fucking busy all the time at work that I just zone out. I’m fairly certain I miss out on a lot of important stuff, but I do not care.
You know when you have a lot of work to do?
And you’re on a deadline. And you just don’t want to do any of it, so you go on every website on the internet instead? Yeah, that’s me right now.
I hope you all know
That I proceeded to tell her all about TLC and how one of the members burned down her dude’s house and died in a car tragic car accident while traveling with a new band she was representing and it was basically on video tape because some crew was documenting their journey. Because these things are important, you know?
Just brought up the band TLC to a student
She had no idea who I was talking about. I was all, “You know! T-Boz, Lisa Left Eye Lopez….you weren’t even born yet ohmygod.”

Oh, really? Well, college doesn’t need them.
The 2012 In/Out List from Washington Post Style... →
I am just getting around to reading some new year things, the WHOLE month counts to me anyways. I have to laugh at one particular thing. Portland was declared out (it’ll never be out to me) and PITTSBURGH was declared in. Could someone shed some light on what is making Pittsburgh trendy? I haven’t come across this fact before or noticed this as a trend at all. I’m definitely in...
Ah! This is great news! I’m so proud of you, are you still off the ‘book? My mom told me last night she was pumped I quit, she is worried about stalkers. I think she forgets I have two blogs and now am a twitter-aholic. therichmondproject: I followed J from @twohippiechic and quit facebook! We will see how long this lasts, but at least I’m taking the first step.
Tumblr, I am disappointed. No cool suggestions for classes in DC? No love for Pauly! Alas. I shall try to pose a wider question then, what about cool dc blogs? Suggestions? -j
So in Brooklyn there is BKskillshare and BKbrainery where you can take low cost classes and learn some cool stuff (I am taking screen printing, one of my friends is taking calligraphy and another taking music writing), so if you are in NYC, definitely check it out if you haven’t already. What I am wondering is are there equivalent cool things like that in Washington, D.C.? Please share. ...
Pauly D, undone →
Does anyone care about Jersey Shore anymore? Someone does since NY Mag still does recaps where I found this screengrab from last night’s episode. (Also this is SEASON FIVE! HOLY CHEEZ-ITS, they really have managed to parlay this into a lasting reality career! I, for one, am impressed and I was definitely a naysayer after watching episode 1 season 1). Anyways, here’s Pauly D without...
Hey! People who live in the south or the east...
(Which I’m convinced is 90% of tumblr) Where is a good place to vacation in Florida? If you want to say Disney…no, just no. I’m thinking good beach, good activities, and like a good tumblr should say: good food. Oh and not tacky/shitty.
That moment when you sit an expensive bag at the...
You’re basically saying to the world: pleaaase don’t fucking steal my shit. I’m drunk and I don’t want to hold my shit anymore. In other words, my bag is heavy and um drunk. The end.
Meal planning update
I just made the spicy Thai basil chicken. IT IS DELICIOUS! My house smells like a Thai restaurant. Recipe tomorrow.
I saw a baby in a tattoo parlor and also a person in full edward scissorhands getup complete with at least 1 foot working scissor fingers. I will admit to not making direct eye contact. - j “This is NY”
Refinery29 tips for a better night's sleep (j) →
maryanne replied to your chat: On Getting Costco Pizza Costco fries are also THE BEST. TRAGEDY OF ALL TRAGEDIES: They don’t sell them at our costco here :(
I've been MIA all day (once again)
But Rick Perry is dropping out?! RELEASE THE DOVES.
On Getting Costco Pizza
Me: Ok. So I'm starving. So if I'm all I NEED MORE [than 1 piece], then just nod your head and don't judge.
Russell: Will do. They do have some kick ass frozen yogurt though. Just sayin'.
Me: ...I knew I loved you.
Guys, he gets me.
Side note: I've eaten a banana, 1 egg and a caramel today because I've been so busy. SO FREAKING HUNGRY.
Zen Out →
Cax’s post encouraged me to share some of my tips for dealing with stress/anxiety/outside pressures. 1. Never underestimate the healing powers of a good workout. Exercise is the answer. I hated that truth for a long time. I had been really, really good about exercising and then decided that I was going to quit for a while. I coasted for a while and then things started to slide. Wow,...
I’ve had a migraine for two days. I haven’t been into work in two days because of this. I have been having crazy major out of nowhere anxiety. Like, asked Russell to come home at lunch because I thought I was going to have an anxiety attack. This only makes the migraines worse. I haven’t been sleeping well and I think it’s because of the anxiety (I stay up thinking of...

Just me? Ok then.

Meal planning! Thanks Whiskybentandhellbound and HayGirlHay, you’ve inspired me. I generally plan out the meals for the week but I realized that I keep stalking the above-mentioned blogs for meal ideas…so why not share my own (and my own reviews of the meal ideas I’ve stolen from them) Sunday - Salsa Crockpot Chicken Monday - Going skiing…so we’ll have leftovers ...
