    wonder(ful) woman

    I finally,  finally got a chance to watch Wonder Woman last night and I have some thoughts. Spoilers ahead, maybe. I’d be v. surprised if I’m not the last person on earth to see this movie. did anyone else tear up during the first big fight scene between the women and the Germans? just me? cool. the whole girl power/girl boss (i know, can we not with that phrase?) just got me. i loved how although there was a bit of a love story, it didn’t take over the whole film. praise be. i’ve said it once, i’ll say it again – Chris Pine looks like a thumb. i now understand why i’m sometimes confused with Gal Gadot. it’s like…

    paying my civic dues

    I have a running joke with my mom that I am a poor representation of an adult. I mean, I have a job (or two), I have credit cards that I pay the bills on once a month, I watch the news fairly regularly, I had to Google what ICYMI meant the other day, I can drive and I don’t have a curfew. Other than that, basically, I’m a child. I don’t do my own laundry (thanks, Mom!), I’m not in any kind of relationship, I’m not 100% happy in either of my jobs (which probably falls into the adult category), and (among other things) still (kind of) expect my mom…

    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 really good or really (really) hyped. Not that my preferred reading of chick-lit is so high brow but, I digress. Dumplin’ is actually Willowdean Dickson. She’s a sassy, smart, self- proclaimed fat girl. She’s from a small town in Texas, where her mother is a former pageant queen who now…

    it’s a lot to take in

    I’m the type of person who copes with things by trying to move past them as quickly as possible, yet wind up usually obsessing/overthinking the situation. Then I get annoyed and overwhelmed and can’t stand thinking/talking/ hearing about whatever it is. Then I get riled up again and they cycle continues. Right now I’m in the annoyed and overwhelmed stage of the election. I’m not going to talk much about it because I physically and mentally can’t. I just don’t want to. I’m disappointed in the people who voted for Trump for the sole reason that”he isn’t Hillary”. I’m disappointed in the people who didn’t vote. I’m disappointed in the Trump…

    wanna go for cawfee?

    I was going to do a regular “I’m alive, just lazy” posts but then I saw a coffee date post and I figured that would be more fun than just me saying how busy I am except we all know that’s a lie. So, wanna go for cawfee? If we went for coffee, I’d need you to leave judgment at the door. I mean, if we hang out in general, you shouldn’t bring it with you either, but more so if we’re doing coffee because I hate small talk so if something is bothering me, I’m jumping right in. Because of this, I need to know that I can say what I…

    single gal speaks: feeling down

    Hi friends! Long time no speak. That’s what I get for tooting my own horn about posting three times in one week. I’m here today with a post that’s been a long time coming (long time= about a week). I just didn’t know how to start it, what to say in it or what direction to go in. I’m still a little unsure, which is why I’m going to write it and post it, even if it’s still the weekend and I don’t like to post on the weekend. I’m not one to show my vulnerable side, on the internet or in real life, but here we are. Remember how…

    love always wins

    Even though I start posts like this the same way, every time – I wasn’t going to comment on the shooting in Orlando. Not because I don’t care or I don’t want it on my blog; I just couldn’t formulate words about it. A few days passed and news reports came in and now all I can do is think about it. I decided it’s better to get my thoughts out of my brain because I’ll go crazy if I don’t. They say it’s best to “not live in fear” and to carry on as best as possible. I agree with that, to a certain extent. Except for some reason…

    thoughts from a youtube addict

    Lately I’ve been toying with the idea of making Youtube videos. By toying, I mean that I’ve thought about it, remembered that I hate how my voice sounds on camera, realized I’d have to edit the videos, and then ultimately decided against it. Added to that is the fact that I’m not a consistent blogger so I probably wouldn’t be a consistent vlogger and my life is so painfully boring I wouldn’t want to watch it – it’s bad enough that I have to live it. All of this being said, there are people who do actually keep up with making videos, boring life and all. I’ll admit, I looove watching them.…

Here’s a decent sized list of what was going through my head as we walked through the expo. ohh trumpeters! I wonder if I could hire them to announce my every arrival. Google it later. this place is gorgeous. what can i throw a party for? being single? yea right. open bar! hallelujah! where did she get that cheese plate? i’m starving. where did everybody find cheese? potato puff? don’t mind if I do. ohmigod. what the heck is in these things? crack?…
