While this was for quite some time a blog about my escapades as a single lady taking full advantage of that fact [called Absolutely Single].... I actually did indeed find someone who can put up with the crazy and am now absolutely taken. This blog now documents my thoughts and life while trying to live as optimistically as possible! I have a lot of random thoughts and most end up here.
I just moved to CO about a year and 1/2 ago, so I am documenting my new life, making friends, and exploring a new place! I absolutely love it and can't wait to see where else life takes me.
This is what happens when you’re driving home hungry and happen to drive past one of your favorite sushi places…. Oops.
Heading to a Cards Against Humanity party. “Getting drunk off of mouthwash” #notmouthwash @buff_tough
Currently on the phone with Dell trying to figure out a way to salvage this damn computer. My hard drive it seems has gone kaput. The man at Best Buy said I could pay them $200 to diagnose and fix my computer, but also said that I seemed savvy and could maybe do it myself if I called Dell and had them send me a reboot disk. That was nice of him. So now I’m running this test on my computer for like the 3rd time today so this guy can help me? But now he’s talking about charges too so I’m just frustrated. Teaching AND doing my Masters is not going to be easy without a computer….
Might need my tax refund (let’s pray I get one) a little sooner than expected.
Ke$ha is a perfect example of how the media loves to make intelligent girls seem dumb and bitchy even though they are actually smart and caring. Ke$ha isn’t far from being a feminist icon but the media continues to label her as a dumb drunk party girl.
and Ke$ha is all for loving yourself and equality but she continues to receive harassment from mainstream media. Enough harassment to the point that she developed an eating disorder because of it. She is an example of how horrible and sexist the music industry is.
I fucking love Kesha. Seriously, she is a fun loving, down to earth, funny, sweet, kind hearted and open minded, talented woman. She is also an extremely intelligent woman with an IQ over 140. So fuck the haters.
Also. Her eating disorder was not only brought on by the media, but heavily brought on by the constant belittlement and pressure to lose weight from her music producer. There’s also a fan movement going on called Free Kesha or something like that, where fans want Kesha to be given artistic freedom and allowed to create the music she WANTS to create.
I will defend ke$ha to anyone at any time, don’t even try it
Ahhhhhh yes. All of this.
1. Finish this long assignment for my children’s lit class about all the books I’ve “read” this week.
2. Find a delicious drink recipe that will make a drink blue or green (it needs to look somewhat like mouthwash, if you’ve got any ideas send them my way!!)
3. Go to Trader Joes finally?!
4. Buy batteries so we can stop switching the batteries from one remote to the other any time we want to use a different device.
5. Figure out a delicious dinner and invite friends over for dinner.
6. Get ready for the Cards Against Humanity party we are going to tonight. We are dressing as “getting drunk off of mouthwash”.
Had to come and try the Elysian of Boom IPA! So fun to see 12th man flags and Hawks fans around :) (at West Flanders Brewing Company)
I feel like I am starting this the way all of the other posts I’ve seen about Lent are starting, I am not Catholic, nor super religious at this point in my life, but have decided to participate in Lent. I think it’s good to take a step away from something in your life that you do, eat, or use a lot. Mine is not a big one, but for me it kind of will be. It also sounds a little silly. Except for people who know me.
I will be giving up ranch dressing. This means on salad, to dip pizza in, to dip everything else in the world in (which is basically what I do), to dip veggies in (bye bye raw veggies…..) etc etc. I consume so much of that damn condiment so this should be a welcome break for my body. But now I am off on a search to find some other delicious condiments to supplement my diet with :)
