A Room of One's Own

The other day it was "A room of one's own" day and it got me thinking. What would be in my room? 

That day it was:

A room without Aggie
a bowl of Skittles
and a Jodi Picoult book.

Today it would be:

 A tall pitcher of ice water
a soft comfy couch with just my personal pillow
silence so I can take a nap.

I'm sure my room preference will be changing daily. but for now, the two ideas above sound pretty great.  


I confess!

Hello! Have you missed me?

I have been wanting to blog all month but to be honest I just don't have much to blog about.
(and the things I DO have to blog about I can't blog about yet...don't worry, eventually there will be a blog post about it )

I have been reading "confession" posts lately and I decided if I can't be creative....just copy someone else! Genius I know.

I confess I ate a full bag of "share size" skittles today. as in legit candy. the good stuff. and ya know what? I enjoyed every bite. well maybe not the last few bites...it was a pretty big bag.

I confess I was really nervous leaving Aggie home alone and having my dad come watch him. I worried for no reason of course. the point is I worried in the first place. weird.

I confess I have 4 really really really big piles of laundry staring me in the face right now and I'm avoiding eye contact. I also have a "not clean enough to put away but not yet dirty enough to wash" pile. Those 5am walks with the dog require said pile.

I confess I am really upset that Hulu Plus isn't showing The Bachelor. I usually enjoy watching my guilty pleasure but this year Hulu effed it all up! I'm left alone to read books and stuff.

I confess Bart and I upgraded our iPhone 4 and all I want to do is take an instagram-worthy pic with my new camera but no opportunities have presented themselves...

I confess that this Pin totally made me smile. I loved Spongebob and watched it all the time.


Upon the Recommendation of the Faculty....

I would like to say that since graduating college I have been super busy and that's why my blog is silent. That would be a big fat lie! The couch and I have become best friends and I am fully caught up on all my favorite stories (aka TV shows).

As happy as I am to see that diploma in the mail, nothing feels different. I guess my education hasn't been a priority for so long that graduating just seems like the last piece of a puzzle that I have been working on for a very long time. That very last piece isn't really that exciting is it? You can see the complete picture and you know exactly where that spare piece goes. There is no mystery. no surprise. It's just the last thing you do after hours of working on that puzzle.

So for now it will stay in its package until we have a nice frame and maybe I will feel a little more proud once reality kicks in.


2 Cents: Super Shred Diet

I found THIS article on my Facebook page and after attempting to read it through I knew I had to blog about it. Scroll down about a 1/4 of the way down where it spells out what you should be eating and your grocery list.

Are you %$&$#@% kidding me?!!?!? Do people actually do this? The grocery demands are intense enough, but keep reading and you will find more rules and directions. If you mess up you have to start over.  you can have diet soda and coffee but no more than 2 cups. Buy lemons, bacon and a loaf of bread. Salt is not a spice.

WTF. This seems a bit extreme. I spent 6 months living what I thought was a very strict diet and yet  mine looks like cake compared to this! How can anyone look at these directions and think "Oh ya, I can totally do that!". It looks depressing and overwhelming from the start and I promise you no one maintains that for very long.

This is just another quick fix attitude for weight loss. Yes, technically this would help you lose weight, but no one except maybe the author of this book and other people who's job it is to follow this diet will be able to do it for very long.

Trust me when I tell you that obsessing over what you are eating like that ISN'T WORTH IT. You will go crazy, you will turn bitchy and you will start to hate your life. Instead of buying 12 specific servings of vegetables and 3 snacks under 100 calories be more realistic. Switch out white flour with whole grains. Throw away those cookies in your pantry. Add some kind of veggie to your meal. Drink more water. Stop drinking soda. You might not lose 20 pounds in a month, but you will be happy and you might stick with it.
