random acts

so i've decided to do something nice for someone every day for the rest of the year
...hopefully, this will stick and i'll keep doing it for...ever.
today, i took all the garbages out for everyone in my building. usually the guy who lives upstairs does it when he leaves for work at 3am. i hope he's pleasantly surprised when he leaves today and sees the trash on the curb!
yesterday i stopped what i was doing and asked someone if they wanted a ride because i realized we were going to the same place and i was passing right by their street.
on sunday i brought munchkins to a meeting i was going to.
on monday i didn't yell at someone when they were mocking my theory of needing just one person to be able to make a difference in a childs life....... yeah, that counts. i really wanted to tell him he was a bitter, jaded, mean guy, and should just stf up. soooo that counts.
why am i telling you these things? not because i want credit for doing them, that would negate the whole point of doing them. I'm telling you so maybe you'll see that a random act of kindness doesn't need to be some big giant spectacle, but really something small and simple.
tis the season loves! (but really, it wouldn't kill us to be a little kinder, every single day.)

a date with destiny

 
 
 
 I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.

coworker bonding...in the gym?


 
 
a mini blurb:
 
i have slept for and hour & a half.
two things are happening today:
i am up before the sun & i am going to spin class.
 
im pretty sure if i look outside at this very moment, pigs are flying past my window.
 
my officemate emailed me last night to let me know he signed me up for the 9 am spin class with him so i better show up. oh ok. i prefer to do my coworker bonding over a beer (okay really, does magners count as beer?) , but that's just me.
 
i have taken spin before, and fear that i am in trouble. or atleast my ladyparts are.
 
is it bad to go into work to use the gym........and then call out for the day?
 
 
the end.
 
 
happy wednesday people.
 
p.s i think i decided on a new blog name. i might spend the day writing it everywhere to see how i feel about it first before making it official ;)

p.p.s : have you liked my fb page yet? let's be facebook official!
because, you know it's not official until it's on facebook.
 

you know what finals actually stand for?

you know what sucks?
........homework. finals. finals as homework.
 
give me a multiple choice test any day, but a take home essay for a final, no thank you.
 
make it four questions long? evennnn better. leave it to me to do at the last minute? awesome.
 
im the worst grad student there ever was, ever.

50 shades of awkward



 
let me preface the following with:
to each their own. some people are into some things. i'm...not.
 
yes, this is real. yes, it's a message i received this morning.
yes, i've been telling people about it all day.



 
 
50 shades of awkward.
online dating at its finest.
 
....and as much as i should feel bad about posting this...i'm thinking he'd like it.
 
still, i give him major credit for actually messaging me with this.
