Halloween Costume Outtakes

So, I went as Captain Hammer for Halloween this year. But I’d thought about going as one of the girls who’ll do the weird stuff. #FourSweaterVests

The Status Quo

Haven’t checked in with me in a while? New to NERdom? Simply wondering WTF is up? Well, things have been happening. Sort of.

I know a lot of pregnant people. This is new for me. Very excited for them!

New Years Resolution: Wear jewelry everyday, because, man, I gots a lot.

I dated a guy. (I think “dated” is the right word, but I never really know all the old/new school meanings.) This was new for me, too. Short Story: Still Single. [Long Story: I don’t think it worked out, least of all because he called me weird a lot and sort of told me I’m bipolar or schizophrenic and we had few things in common, but more because we were always on edge around one another. It wasn’t easy. Or comfortable. It didn’t click. At least that’s what he said the same night he actually admitted to liking me. I don’t know.]

Should be working out. Am not.

I got a new job! I told you a little about it before. Unfortunately I’m still trying to wrap up my old job, meaning right now I’m working on five different magazine issues. FIVE. It’s insanity. Worse, though, is that my new boss just announced she’s retiring. Remember this time last year when my old boss got moved? Now my editor is announcing her retirement in less than a MONTH after hiring me. I’m really pretty frustrated with her, but more terrified at how I’m going to survive until she’s replaced. As if I wasn’t questioning my decision to take this job already. Jeesh.

Moving up the sorority volunteer line, too. Lived at the house for a couple weeks. Might be becoming a pretty active adviser. Eh.

Got wireless Internet back after not having it for a month. #Winning

Life post-PB is liberating.

Volunteered at a high school debate tournament for the first time in a couple years. Felt dumb. So all things as usual there.

Going to be happily rejoining the lawyer book club just as soon as I can, and I am still going strong with the PB Book Cult and the sorority quarterly club. Goal: 30 books this year.

Finally, and unrelated: This clip which makes me think of this post’s title.

The world is a mess and I just need to rule it.

In a world where I send Valentines

Hating on February, I dislike Valentine’s Day by default. This, I am certain, surprises no one: I am not girly, romantic, and I’m almost never in a relationship to reap the benefits, anyway.

However. If I did send Valentines, this is what you’d likely get.

The Last Word

Six hours on the interstate over the weekend left me a lot of GRE-free time to myself. (Sandy, by the way, turned 100,000 miles on my trip. She’s so grown up!) First of all, just let me say that I love singing in the car. I have a horrendous voice, and boy do I know it, but  who is it hurting when I’m alone and trying to stay awake? And I’m wild about the way my car has tremors from the bass at the end of Dr. Horrible’s “Brand New Day.”  I digress. More importantly, I had ample time to devote to considering the things that I’ve been thinking about lately. Sounds a bit redundant, this thinking about thinking, but it was worth it.

Everyone wants the last word, don’t you think? I mean, of course when you are fighting with someone about something, you naturally want the last word. I am right, you are wrong. When you flip for sides in debate, teams often chose second speaker versus choosing the side they’d rather argue. Even the second speaker in set debates is the more knowledgeable and more persuasive speaker (I was first speaker if that tells you anything about me. Thanks, Ramya, for keeping us in the round). But even in non-argumentative situations, having the last word is coveted. Although, I can’t think of any situations at the moment…

It seems that I really have a thing for last words, particularly when it involves my feelings. Which, I understand, seeing as they are my feelings and all. Yet I’ve come to the conclusion that making sure people know how I feel isn’t always necessary. What I’m not saying is that feelings don’t matter. But maybe there is a point where you just let it go? Sometimes you just aren’t exactly ready to let that person forget, or let yourself forget. But after a while it just seems selfish, especially because I can’t think of any occasion where I’ve devoted lots of time to telling someone how happy they made me feel. So I’m going to take a big step and stop it now. That whole talking-yourself-in-circles thing sucks, and I’m going to try my damnedest to keep mum when unprovoked.
