We are babysitting a baby kitty, & his favorite thing to do is climb our limbs. We put a glow-stick around his neck & he is now Rave Kitten!
Sean & I had a design-off and both created different versions of the same website. We pulled an all-nighter to work on them.
All I do at work these days is try on men’s shoes & wish I weren’t broke.
Had a bonfire with friends, drank wine out of plastic cups, and made s’mores.
Went to a concert in an old hippies house, & it got shut down by the cops an hour in. My roommates used their networking skills to get the 2 bands relocated to a little red room in the upstairs of a bar. It was such a good show! Partly due to the bands skills, the intimacy of the concert, and because there were actually dancing hipsters. The floor bounced like a trampoline. (Also I got to be a groupie and carry a bass guitar!)
Went to a Halloween party as a ninja. I could not hate dubstep and “dj’s” any more than I do now. But there was a giant blow up slide/obstacle course! I lost 2 fake daggers in there. Also Stephen wore a dress, so that was exciting too.
Today is a good rainy/coffee/creative day.
Also I’ve decided to move back home in December. Not because things didn’t work out here - it’s just until life settles back down after Sean graduates in 2 months. We both need to get our things in order. This time the long distance won’t be for a year. Sad for more long distance, but excited for Wednesday wing nights with Amina again!
“If there is unhappiness in you, first you need to acknowledge that it is there. But don’t say “I’m unhappy.” Unhappiness has nothing to do with who you are. Say: “There is unhappiness in me.” Then investigate it. A situation you find yourself in may have something to do with it. Action may be required to change the situation or remove yourself from it. If there is nothing you can do, face what is and say, “Well, right now, this is how it is. I can either accept it, or make myself miserable.” The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.” — Eckhart Tolle
Mann, sometimes I feel left out at work when all the gangsta girls I work with start talking like: “Grrrrrl, I’ma whoop u good! I needa get me some new church shoes. You hurd dat new Chris Brown song?”
And then suddenly there is so much slang and talk of whoopings that I can’t even follow what is being said, and I’m just the little Canadian girl in the corner going “Ahh! I know no Chris Brown! I have no experience with whoopings! I stopped dressing for church at the age of 5! What is going onnnnn!”
