Trust me, I like to have a drink from time to time. Usually that drink is a cheap glass of red wine from Trader Joe’s most recent $2 wine sale, but lately, I’ve just not really been into drinking. One reason is because I’m still trying to lose that last 5 pounds that I gained in the second half of last year (come on, I live in LA and it’s already starting to look like...
New favorite blog:
Thought Catalog. It’s awesome and cynical and dry and hilarious, while actually talking about things that really relate to me and my weird life right now. An example of some of their stories: I’m taking a sad day. I don’t know how to network. War Horse is essentially Air Bud. New life goal is to blog for them. And HelloGiggles. But that’s always a life goal.
Back to the daily grind
This weekend was pretty much perfect. Friday night, I went to the chiropractor and masseuse (ahhh…..), then got to go out with all of my wonderful friends at my old work. I like my new job a lot, but it always sucks to have to start new in terms of work friends, especially when you left such a wonderful group of people as I did. I’m sure soon enough I’ll have a good group of...
Huge sale at Zara online right meow
Go shop now. I just dropped $100 there. I really love this dress but I have two problems: 1. I never wear dresses and feel awkward when I do. 2. They don’t have it in my size.
Not a good workout week for me
Last week: gym on Sunday, Yoga on Monday, the rest of the week = minor outside/inside exercises (light basketball, dancing, walking, etc.) Not good. So I’m going to try really hard this week. I mean, I have a branch of my gym ON MY WAY HOME FROM WORK. No excuses now. I am GOING to get those extra FourSquare points for showing up really often.

supercon: You want a job, a vacation, heath insurance, validation, a back rub, a scalp massage at the place where you get your haircut, people who are jealous of you, an ex who won’t stop texting you when they’re drunk, Twitter followers, happiness maybe sorta, someone to buy you lunch at a…
This week, I started three different training programs: squats, pushups, and tricep dips. I’m only two days in (and I did two days back to back, which I probably shouldn’t have done), but I am FEELING IT! I thought that squats would be the easiest because I’ve been doing them for a long time and I almost never do upper body workouts (my bad), but I’m so sore in my quads...
I have to talk about this app
It’s called Key Ring. If you have an smartphone (iPhone or Android), YOU NEED TO HAVE THIS APP. Because if you’re at all like me, you have about a million different “rewards cards” that just take up hella space in your wallet and make you get a bigger wallet. This goes on and on until you get a smaller purse than your wallet and you’re screwed. So in this app,...
EVERYONE GO READ MY FIRST TWENTIES HACKER POST!!!
I ramble about mental health and how sucky my life was for a little bit (spoiler: I’m doing a lot better now) http://twentieshacker.com/i-think-im-depressed
I am very unhappy with my shoe choice today
I went with comfort over style today (going to be walking around downtown later today), and that’s almost as bad as going with style over comfort.
So. Freaking. Cool →

End of an era
Today was my last day working at Goodness Manufacturing. It was an amazing job to have, especially straight out of college, but a very hard and sad fact about advertising is that most of the time, you need to move around to different agencies to advance your career. This isn’t 100 percent true at all, I can name about 12 notable exceptions of the top of my head — but it does work for many people. ...
I'm pretty sure we're at the point where people...
hello-ampersand: This dude is just great. I hope he and Adam Scott get some more great scenes together. Since, you know, real life besties and all.
Note to self:
Be friendlier when you’re with a new group of people. If you just sit there quietly, you won’t know anyone.
Second to last day of work today
Starting to say my goodbyes. For as stressed out as this job has made me, I’ve also made some awesome friends who I’ll miss a lot. First day of school tonight!
