martina is losing it #5

With another Thursweigh on the horizon, I thought I should come on here and quickly update on last week’s results. As of last week, I’m down 29.5 pounds! This week, I cheated and hopped on the scale. I don’t really like to do that because if the number is higher, then I’ll stress until Thursday and be all mopey about…

um, yea i do really care, actually.

When I was in fourth grade, we were given an assignment to interview someone who was a different age than you were. Or maybe it was to interview someone who was older than you, but that doesn’t make much sense because when you’re 9, pretty much everyone is older than you. Everyone that would sit for an interview, anyway. Either…

loving lately

I was working on a different post for today but it was kind of whiny and blah so I scrapped it and am throwing together a Friday Favorites/Five/ Fwhatever the kids are calling them these days. I recently got the unexpected but fantastic news that Supermarket Sweep 2000 is now on Amazon Prime. Be still my nostalgic heart. If there’s…

single gal speaks: don’t PMS & Bumble

I’ve been trying to write this for about two weeks now but I don’t know what to really say. Unlike my last post, where I didn’t know how to start it because I was so excited I just wanted to word vomit all over the screen, this one is a lot more personal. Ok, I’m being dramatic. It’s about online…

keeping up with martina

*insert same sorry i’ve abandoned this space again greeting* *insert next sentence about how i didn’t mean to be away this long but life got in the way and time just moves so fast when you’re an adult (or an “adult”)* Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I know I’ve been quiet here lately and the truth…

rant and ramble: a possible case of stockholm syndrome

I’ve been at my new job for a month now and I never thought I’d say this there are things I miss about my old one(s). I know, so crazy. Especially after all of the blog posts I’ve written, both in my head and on here, all the tears I’ve shed over shitty situations, letters of complaint I’ve threatened to…

coming at us from both coasts, so to speak

I had another post planned. Actually, nothing was planned, I just didn’t expect to write this today. So don’t expect another, funnier, less political post is what I’m saying. So, we’ve all seen the toxic cesspool that Facebook has turned into since the election. Normally, I’ll ignore it. Especially since in real, non-internet life, I like these people. They’re friends,…

Currently, I’m…

I think, since I haven’t really done one in a while, I’m going to fill you guys in with a Currently post. I know you’ve been absolutely dying to know what’s going on in my mundane life. Reading: Well, actually, I just finished it but, Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy. I really enjoyed this book. I don’t normally read YA fiction. Unless it’s…

les incompétents

This is a quick, impromptu post. I’m trying a new approach to blogging, that being when I’m really riled up (good or bad) about something, I’m going to try my best to come on here and unload/celebrate. This probably won’t last too long, but it sounds good, right? Today I’m unloading. I’m pissed. And it has nothing to do with the…
