The Taylor Swift song is better than I expected. (Someone else played it).
But I prefer Lorde. She’s the discovery of the year so far. And the people who received a link to her song in a text from me are winners. Request and I’ll send it to you as well because I happen to like everyone enough to think you’re winners. I mean, if I have your number. Like, that’s a thing.
Ok. Team. Tomorrow will be my confessional/exciting post, I promise.
Tonight I will say this: I made strawberry blueberry muffins with coconut oil that are awesome and entirely whole wheat. I am wearing a sweater tank top with a peace sign because it’s my new favorite shirt. And I am going to a birthday party and also to a concert. It’s pretty much a big night. Like, whoa.
In all seriousness, coconut beer is incredible. And blueberry, but not the overly sweet kind. I believe that everyone should be picky about beer.
Mmkay. Thanks. Bye.
It has been too long, dear faithful blog readers.
Right now, I am listening to Loch Lomond’s song “Wax & Wire,” contemplating the meaning of life, and digesting some serious Ben & Jerry’s peanut butter ice cream. Also, I have a second blog post in the works as we read, but it merits a little thoughtfulness, so I’m holding off on that until tomorrow.
The song has changed to “Don’t Cha” by the Pussycat Dolls featuring Busta Rhymes.
I never claimed I was consistent, but I do think I have exceptional taste in music.
News: I am totes going to law school in the fall.
Other news: I am currently a full-time intern and starting a second job on Monday. The second job will be well-loved for its impact on my (delicious) coffee intake. There is a chance that it will be less well-loved for its impact on my time and level of sleep deprivation.
The song has now changed to “Settle Down” by Kimbra.
No linking this time, but I recommend searching that music video and generally exploring Kimbra’s repertoire (#worthwhile).
And with that, I bid you adieu until tomorrow because I need to take advantage of daylight and get running. Wahoo.
A. Sing along.
B. Complete tasks you planned to complete.
- Don’t freak out if it’s not on exactly the right timeline — flexibility is good.
- But quit procrastinating.
C. Sometimes it is hard to understand what people are saying, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be interesting if you figure it out.
- For example: “Make Me Proud” by Drake featuring Nicki Minaj is good, but what is Nicki Minaj actually saying? I think there are words missing.
D. Be optimistic.
E. Sleeping enough helps you maintain a normal weight. So do that.
F. Include characters you are uncomfortable writing when you write.
- You might make a new friend.
- Or learn something new about yourself.
- Or you might discover that people are not so different from one another, no matter what identities have been pinned to them (e.g. black, feminist, gay, conservative, stay-at-home mom).
G. Drink enough beer.
- But not too much beer.
H. Go swinging.
I. Take pictures.
- Of the garden.
- And other stuff, too.
in the morning
on the swings
It is too bad that we can’t edit our lives. It would be nice to write the day and then go back and make changes. Wouldn’t you go back and change yesterday? Just a little bit? Or maybe last Monday? Or last year?
Or maybe that day four and a half months ago when you did something that still makes you feel sick because it was so embarrassing — and not in the funny way that you might talk about when you are asked to tell about your most embarrassing moment at a party, in front of a big group of people. Maybe it’s all about getting back on the horse. Try again, right?
