i’m missing jordan right now. the dead sea, the red sea. wadi rum, just riding on a camel all morning and seeing the blackest sky in the world just completely LIT UP with stars as i fall asleep in the middle of the desert. another resolution for 2009 is to figure out how to stuff my life into my backpack. once i figure that out, i’m going to travel. just me and some clothes and my...
i just want to be the best person that i can be. that requires a psychiatrist. so, in order to be the best person that i can be, i need to stop being such a fucking baby and go to a psychiatrist. that’s new years’ resolution number one.
For new years’ resolutions. I have plenty. And I know that people think they are stupid. But I need them. I need symbolic beginnings. I need a day that I wake up and say “things are going to be different.” I am so analytical. I can’t just do something when I wake up. I have to plan. I’m literally writing down things to do at the beginning of the year. Where to find...
i’ve been awake for a long time. it’s 5:41 a.m. i don’t have my glasses on, so i thought it was 6:41 a.m. once i finish the laundry, i’m going grocery shopping for christmas eve dinner. get that shit done before the store is a madhouse.
i just this moment decided that i DO want to have kids someday. because of a tollhouse cookie commercial.
today i got middlesex, how to cook everything vegetarian, mario batali’s tour of spain cookbook, real desserts, and barefoot in paris. i’m so excited about reading.
just kidding. tonight is crying. i think i’ll call a therapist on monday. when anxiety keeps you from admitting that you are dealing with depression…i think something is wrong.
tonight is bourbon, episodes of lost, and wishing that karen from will and grace was a real person.
GOD DAMNIT I GOT AN 88.3% AS MY FINAL GRADE IN AFRICAN POLICY. GOD DAMNIT GOD DAMNIT GOD DAMNIT.
Chicago in 2011. It’s happening.
lunch, meeting, and “party” friday, wedding and baking on saturday, boyfriend’s company holiday party sunday. i plan on looking fabulous all weekend.
I find it hard to be motivated to study for this final tonight. All I have to do is pass to keep my B. If I get a 90, I have a POSSIBILITY of getting an A. Obviously, I want an A. But I’m okay with Bs. Why am I so unmotivated lately?
Ten year plan. 2011-2013 be a teacher in chicago or new york. 2013-2015 travel the world doing research for my women’s schools 2015-2017 get a master’s in mass, d.c., new york, etc. 2017-2019 work my entry-level job 2019-2021 implement plan for women’s schools all over the world and save the planet.
While most people hate finals week, I, on the other hand, LOVE FINALS WEEK. Why? Because all of that time usually spent in class can now be spent AT WORK! I get to work a full 30 hours during finals week and make lots of monies! Oh and it helps that one of my finals is during dead week, one of my finals is a paper, one of my finals is a take-home final, and I only have two actual show up and take...
Reading that last post made me hate myself for caring so much about those things when, on nights like tonight (and last night and the night before), I’m in agonizing pain and would give anything for it to go away. I can’t get to the doctor until Friday morning. 800 mg ibuproufen is my saving grace right now. Can’t eat. Can’t sleep. Can’t focus. I have no idea...
I have a lot of TV to watch over the break. Finish up LOST before February. The rest of season 2, then seasons 3, 4, and 5 of How I Met Your Mother. Pretty much all of Modern Family. The last episode of Glee. I’m going to find the perfect pair of trouser jeans. I want them to wear with sweaters and t-straps, bad. I’m dying my hair tomorrow. My mom discovered the most perfect mousse...
Oh heyyyy! What did I do today? Well, I went to work. Then I failed a reading quiz even though I actually read everything. Then I had a nervous breakdown in a professor’s office. Ever since then, I’ve been at home, trying to finish my research paper. When’s it due? Oh, in 7 hours. I only have HALF OF A PAGE LEFT. But that’s it dude. There’s nothing else to say....
Only thing to do is jump oooooooooooooover the moooooon!
I’ve decided to go backpacking through europe. So typical, right? I don’t care. I want to see the world. I’m not sure when I’ll go. I can’t go this summer, I need to take a lot a lot a lot of summer classes. Maybe during Christmas next year? I don’t know. I need to get away.
Today I ate some brown basmati rice, and a mixture I made by opening cans and throwing sit in a pot. I used fire roasted diced tomatoes and some light kidney beans. Added garlic and chili powder (WTF I’M OUT OF CUMIN?!?). It wasn’t half-bad. Then I ate a clementine and licked the spoon from the brownies I made. I’m very thirsty.
I got Netflix!
my first move was food inc. in other news, i’m now a vegetarian again.
i want to see precious, the blind side, twilight (stfu), the men who stare at goats, pirate radio, and an education.
I am not even lying, there are girls singing fucking Backstreet Boys IN THE UNION at 10 in the morning. NO.
alijo: once again, I do not understand anything. it’s probably stupid to say this, but I never realized how selfish suicide is, until last night. I know everyone dies. I know it’s just a part of life and growing up, but too many people I know have died this year. it doesn’t seem right. I know it’s rude to do this over tumblr but who was it?
I’ve decided to collect a thrift store wardrobe worthy of Lady Gaga and put all of that old makeup to use and start haunting gay bars and cocaine addict meetings.
Food of the day!
I didn’t take pictures. I’ve been lying around all day because (surprise surprise), I woke up with a bad cough. I had some DELICIOUS food today, though! Stonyfield organic lowfat plain yogurt with blueberries and honey. Annie’s organic mac and cheese (I don’t eat it because it’s organic, it’s just delicious) I made THE BEST salad! It had spinach, spring...
Also cooking in your oven!
NACHOS! I love nachos. So. Much. So I make them in my oven, a lot. Same thing with the cookie sheet and the foil. Add some tortilla chips and spread them out. This is wayyyyyyy easier if you use big chips, not broken pieces. Get a can of black beans, drain them and stick them in a bowl. I add a little bit of cumin because I’m obsessed with it but that’s just me. Get a potato masher or...
How to Cook in Your Oven
So I cook a lot. But the majority of it is in my oven. Example: I made THE GREATEST sandiwch twice in the past week with stuff that was on sale at the grocery store, a chefs knife, a cookie sheet, foil, and my oven. All you need is: a rotisserie chicken (this thing lasts me a week), on sale for 4.99 roasted garlic ciabatta, day-old and on sale for 1.80 ready-made pesto (i use buitoni,...
I’m giving myself a lazy weekend at MY apartment, as opposed to my mom’s. My apartment is a disaster and I am swearing up and down that I will finally finish EVERYTHING this weekend. Organizing my pantry, cleaning out my guest room, choosing my new bed skirt, figuring out what the hell I’m doing with a headboard, where I’m putting my persian rugs, hanging up pictures, etc. ...
Holy crap there’s only 5 1/2 weeks of school left? And I have something planned every single weekend between now and then? 13-15 - Lebanese Night, FFSA party, Mastodon show, housewarming party, 20-22 - Gary V, work @ Sooner Saturday, 27-29 - Allan’s Wedding, BEDLAM, Eid al-Adha, 4-6 - Megadeth, the Non, 10-13, Underoath @ Tulsa, Plaza District party, Patrick & Nicole’s...
I slept a lot this weekend. Did it help? Nope. Throat is more sore than ever. Knees hurt worse than ever. Headache worse than ever. I just want to fall over. Can I just post my schedule for this week? Just so you can see the insanity? Let’s see, tomorrow I have a policy summary due, an interview with the newspaper, a holocaust lecture, class, and enrollment. Tuesday, I have a policy brief...
Reshma Saujani rules! →
I have a viral infection. Not one with a name or anything. LAME.
I haven’t updated on food lately have I?Monday, I had tacos and fro yo with fruit per usual. Tuesday pita pit and fro yo with fruit. Yesterday I had coffee with real cream and real sugar since I had to work at 8 am. I also had a fucking donut yesterday, I don’t know what I was thinking. After that I had half a can of vegetable soup because my original dinner of pasta with tomatoes and...
Sitting in Goddard in the quarantine room with a mask on even though my fever broke. Also it’s been an hour and I still don’t have results.
Food today: 7 oz fro yo with 5 oz mixed fruit, hummus pita with spinach, romaine, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, sprouts and feta. Miss vickies salt and vinegar chips.
Dear guy talking about life in new York. You are lying and loud and I just want to mail a damn package.
Using the word stressed would be an understatement. I have SO MUCH classwork. Between now and thanksgiving there are two tests, four papers, a huge presentation, a policy portfolio, more books to read than at which I could shake a stick. I have to quit screwing around on the weekends. I’m staying in Norman this weekend and living in the library writing above mentioned books. Add money into...
OMG you guys! I’m going to join the incredible Miss Jillian for a small part of her AMAZING journey! I am definitely joining her this time next year in Bolivia, and who knows? Maybe we will hit it off (I mean, via e-mail, we pretty much already have!) and I’ll have the financial means to join her for longer. You know what this means! BAKESALE FUNDRAISERS!! Now, get thee to her site...
I don’t really know what happened last night but I’m about to edit the pictures, so I’ll let you know.
Love love loved Rent.
Ahhh I’m falling behind! Slept forever, football with the boyfriend, Iranian food with mama and now we’re on the way to Guthrie to closing night of rent!
