[[MORE]]I’ve sat down to write this so many times and it’s just all been wrong each time, so here’s hoping I get it right this time. I can’t stop thinking about the young man who committed suicide last weekend. He’s been on my mind every day. His funeral was Saturday morning. I didn’t even know him, but when I wander over to his Facebook page or see...
Watching Mad Men
Thought I’d get a beer Opened my bedroom door Cockroach scurries across the hall NOPE Close bedroom door I’ll deal with it later Stuff towel into door crack Sit back down to watch Mad Men Glance at door COCKROACH ON WALL MOTHERFUCKER How DON’T WANNA SMASH IT Lysol in bathroom Spray Still alive Scurries back under door Scurries under brother’s bedroom door ...
I keep getting on here to write.
Sometimes I write a post and delete it immediately, but most of the time I sit here and nothing gets written. I have things I could write about, but none of it seems worthwhile. And that’s weird because typically everything I write on here is pretty mundane and not really worth reading. Perhaps I’m in a blogging rut.
Nothing like getting a call from your dad to tell you that your brother was in a car wreck on his way back to Athens while you’re already a bit unsettled by the suicide of someone who went to your high school. asdfghjkl; (My brother is okay, but it’s still scary.)
An alumnus of my high school committed suicide earlier today. I didn’t know him personally as he was three years younger than me, but I know a lot of people who did know him and they are hurting badly right now. If you’re the praying kind, could you say a few prayers? Especially for his parents — he was an only child. If you’re not, maybe just take a few minutes to remind...

Maybe this is irrational, but my brother's eating...
Perhaps it’s because he can maintain a skeletal physique while eating like total shit and I diet and exercise and gain weight. But it’s also because he went to Chick-fil-A yesterday when there were three large pieces of grilled chicken that I made the other day sitting in the fridge. Then after I reminded him, saying I have to throw it away soon and can’t eat it all by myself,...
jodilyn replied to your photo: These are the Steelers’ new throwback uniforms. … they would look so much better with black pants or yellow pants that actually matched and were closer to steelers yellow. blech! I know! I actually kind of like the stripes (though I wish the numbers looked different), but the pants are awful. These are genuine throwbacks, meaning the team actually looked like...
Anonymous asked: Not accusingly, just wondering if you ever worry that by being in a long-term relationship through college, you're missing out?
I haven’t had much to say lately. Give me something to talk about?
In case anyone ever has a surprise for me, you can...
Robbie: I have a surprise too.
Me: What! Since when?!
Robbie: Actually since the last time I was there!
Robbie: Yeah, I just didn't get the opportunity to show you!
Me: omg you know I am going to be obsessing over this all day now. I have no idea what it could be! Usually when people try to surprise me I figure it out.
Robbie: Well good!
Me: omg you should have just waited and surprised me and not told me that you had a surprise. I'm gonna die.
Robbie: Don't die!
Me: Figuratively speaking. Tell me!
Robbie: Not yet!
Me: I hope you plan on telling me/showing me right when you get here because you know I'm not gonna be able to focus on anything else until I know what it is!
Robbie: I'll let you know not long after I get there. :)
Me: ...is this a surprise for me specifically? Or just a surprise about something to do with you?
Robbie: I don't wanna give anything away!
Me: Is it a good surprise? Am I going to be happy about it, I mean? I assume when people say they have a surprise it's good, but sometimes surprises aren't good!
Robbie: I think you'll like it. :)
Me: This is terrible.
Robbie: Don't think about it!
Me: It's all I'm going to think about! UGH and you said two different things. You said you'd show me and you also said you'll let me know. So I don't know if this is a tangible surprise or not!
Robbie: It's tangible.
Me: Okay, that makes me feel better.
Robbie: You're overthinking this!
Me: ...have you met me?

ponytailtime replied to your post: TMI Thursday! I’m going to ask my friend if he’s ever had a Brazilian wax. THIS BLOG POST INSPIRED ME. ponytailtime replied to your post: TMI Thursday! I should add that I ask my friend questions as a means of flirting with him but awkwardly flirting. Lolol. I love it. I still kind of can’t believe Brazilian waxes for men is a thing, though. ...
Okay, guys. This is for real a TMI post. If you are of the male species, I would advise against reading it. Also, if you know me in real life (i.e. are a friend or a family member), I would advise against reading this because it’ll just be awkward the next time you see me in person because this is probably all you’ll be able to think about. This deals with below-the-belt maintenance....
Is it strange of me to prefer this?
This > > > > > 90 degree weather. I’m still wearing shorts and Chacos, I’m just also wearing a sweatshirt. I don’t see what’s so bad about it, but judging by the groans of my classmates when someone read the forecast for today, I’m the only one who likes it.
A sad tale.
My Women Writers professor is a fantastic lady. Dr. W’s probably the most knowledgeable person I’ve ever met and she’s quite funny, too. If the class wasn’t at 8 a.m., I doubt I’d ever miss a lecture. Somehow the discussion today turned to World War II. A girl in the class asked Dr. W about her mother’s experiences during the war (she’s from Austria). ...
divinesecrets: I thought other job seekers and recent grads would really enjoy this GIF sent to me by Blake earlier: Charlie is the best.
This weekend forecast certainly calls for time spent outside. I’m talking frolicking in strawberry fields (and of course bringing a bucketful home), hitting golfballs at the driving range, and taking a blanket down to the intramural fields for a picnic and some frisbee!
True Confession Tuesday
I don’t like Pinterest very much. [Collective gasp from addicted pinners everywhere.] I don’t have the patience to sort through the things I don’t like to find things I do like. And even then, I still don’t really see the point of it. I pin a few crafts that I’ll never make. Pin a few recipes I’ll never cook. (I guess it’s not Pinterest’s fault that...

The Perfect Man
I was listening to The Bert Show on the drive to class this morning. I’m not usually a fan of the radio and nearly always have my iPod to provide my own music, but I left it in my room. The gang was discussing the results of a survey about the “perfect man.” Here’s the criteria (my take is in italics): - Eats meat (vegetarianism is a turn-off). - I don’t personally...

I've had this blog for nearly 3 years.
I’ve written over 6,000 posts. But you wouldn’t be able to tell because they’re all gone. I just deleted every single one of them on a whim. But I haven’t stopped blogging, so fear not! (Unless you were hoping I was going to stop blogging, in which case, I’m sorry.)
