How I plan on packing for my move to Brooklyn. If anyone has any good tips about Bay Ridge, please do drop a note, it looks like I’ll be subletting there for the summer while I do my summer training.
- Russell: I want to hike mount Blackmore
- Me: no! There are mountain lions up there!
- Russell: I'll bring a baseball bat.
I’m pretty sure I’m getting her girls’ norts (or under armour ones) and a nike or under armour tank. So, basically what I wear for athletic wear in the summer. I can’t help myself though, the girls versions are so cute!
Um, juicing isn’t so bad. The only bad part is figuring out a good recipe. Monday’s juice was too spinach-y. Tuesday’s juice had WAY too much ginger, and today’s juice tasted mostly like celery (ew). But the good thing is I can make it to lunch and am not trying to eat everything in sight, just my daily banana (I seriously eat a banana every day. My potassium level must be awesome).
My only (irrational) complaint is that I haven’t dropped a pants size yet. WTF JUICE!
Bright side: we’re going to a new fried chicken restaurant on Friday. I have basically been eating mostly vegetables and fruit all week (with protein for dinner), so can you imagine how excited I am? Fuckin’ fried chicken! I’ve looked at the menu about 10 times already. All things in moderation, eh?
My niece is turning 9 in a few weeks (OMG), and asked for “athletic like clothes”, or at least that’s how my brother worded it. What is popular for 9 year olds? When I was 9, I was wearing GapKids and Nordstrom leggings and turtlenecks.
I’m in a very strange mood in terms of my career/job search. I’m second-guessing every resume I send out, every cover letter I write. Do I have enough experience? Am I conveying my experience well enough? Does my resume look ok? Do I sound like an idiot on the phone? Is my education sufficient? Are they judging me based on where I received my degrees? Am I getting the general point across of: I’ve built a lot of programs, I’ve been really successful, and I generally kick a lot of ass? Am I going to get a job I want? Am I going to be taken seriously? Will I have to take a lateral move (I do not want to take a lateral move)? Will I be forced to take a step down (I WILL NOT)?
What it all boils down to is: am I good enough?
Ugh, this is such a shitty feeling. Positive self-talk is sort of working…I think I need to go join the world and read “Lean In”. (I already downloaded it…)
Ok, I get it now. I bought one finally (bright pink!) and it is love.
And of course upon the first wear I got blue ink on it.
This is why we can’t have nice things!
- 2 clementines
- 2 rice cakes
- leftover fruitsnacks from the weekend roadtrip
I narrowly avoided MOAR DONUTS.
I’m really just trying to not go to Pure Barre on an empty stomach because a) that sucks so much and makes me want to pass out and b) when I leave Pure Barre hungry, I end up eating everything in sight and it’s taco night so…
I was THISCLOSE to cancelling my Pure Barre class this afternoon because my head hurts and I’m tired and sore until thoughts of wearing a bikini in 2 months flashed through my mind. And the half a donut I ate this morning (and the other half I ate with lunch…).
Damn, I feel like a responsible adult.
