beats & rests

I’ve been thinking a bit about why I haven’t been blogging as actively lately. I could try to say it’s partly because I work 10-7 now, but I think the truth is it’s because things have been good. Most of my posts before were me complaining/venting and honestly I just can’t find things to complain about. It’s a nice feeling but also kind of weird.

This weekend has been good. I feel like I’ve been really productive even though it’s really just that I’ve been more productive than recent weekends. Yesterday I went to the grocery store, got coffee with my baby sister, cooked dinner for everyone, and went to Target. Today I went to Ross, and then I went through almost all the clothes I own and got rid of probably more than half of them. Things that don’t fit anymore and things that I’ve been holding onto because I have a problem letting go of things. I’m trying to be better about that. I’m trying to be better about a lot of things.

Things at work are going well. My boss told me last week that I’m doing great and she was impressed with how well I’ve caught on to everything, which is huge because I feel like I still have to ask a lot of questions. I find myself thinking about the future with this company, about all the possibilities for advancement there could be. It’s only been two months but I’m already keeping my eyes peeled for any opportunities that might open up.

Also last week, my boss basically told me that she wants me to take time off, which makes me really happy. I’m eyeing a couple days next months, and then I also already have a day in November approved. Plus there’s paid holidays in November and December and that’s more time off which is really exciting as a person who didn’t have any paid time off at my last job.

I haven’t read any of the fifth Harry Potter book in almost a week. I’m a little bummed about that. Thankfully, it’s something that is easily remedied.

Things are just good. I like saying that because it’s not something I’ve been able to say in a really long time, but at the same time I also kind of feel like I’m bragging when I say it and that makes me feel a little bad.

There are two sides to how I feel about my sister and her boyfriend sleeping downstairs for the last three nights.

On the one hand, sometimes it’s Sunday morning and I wake up at 5:43 AM for some god forsaken reason and I try to go downstairs and dude’s sleeping on the couch and my sister’s sleeping in the chair and I can’t do anything because who wants to be woken up before 6:00 AM on a Sunday morning. But I’m annoyed because it means I have to go sit in my room and try to entertain myself in silence for three hours.

But on the other hand, I feel like at least I know dude is sleeping. Instead of going home before, he would go meet up with friends or go to the gym and he was averaging about 2 hours of sleep a night and that’s just not healthy.

(noun) In our list of interesting words, lalochezia is the state of emotional relief one achieves from using vulgar language. This satisfying feeling accompanied with the act of telling someone to f—k off is a great stress relief. If somebody accuses you of having a potty mouth, counteract their unimaginative insult by explaining that copious amounts of lalochezia is helping you from punching them in the face. A little humor and intelligence always goes a long way.  (via wordsnquotes)

Feeling super casual in my red pants but somehow they’re considered “professional” and I’ll take it. Also, my legs are short but not as short as this angle makes them look.
