Proof I jiggled my jelly today. That armpit sweat. I decided to restart my 10k app so that’s what I’ll be up to until I feel inspired to do otherwise but gosh, I forgot how much it helped with stress and I’m remembering how freeing it was to just move gazelle like.

Monday? YOU again.

  • Saturday was our housewarming. At some point I remember looking around at the thirty people in our apartment and wondering who half of them were and wondering why some felt the need to venture in our closed off bedroom? F, off. I think the worst thing was D felt the party wasn’t big enough. Cue social anxiety. 
  • On the plus side, his CrossFit friends got too drunk at another party and never showed up. Love ‘em but some of ‘em are really like bulls in china shops. 
  • I’ve been salivating over the thought of slow cooked green chile verde chicken tacos since last week but every time I go to the store, I forget chiles, argh. 
  • COSTCO TRIP YESTERDAY! I got five pounds of mussels and decided I was going to eat ALL of them in a garlic, white wine, and butter sauce. I only got through about three pounds. Guess who’s having more for lunch?
  • Besides that, I spent all day on the couch yesterday (cramps - THE WORST - why am I not over this stage of life?) playing Destiny with my friends in Austin. I think I’ll visit them in January for PAX. <3
  • I made a conscious effort after feeling defeated on Friday to checkout of work emails and Slack and ended up ignoring my phone as well and even though catching up on what happened Monday morning was overwhelming, I think I’ll do this more often. In startups, what is a 9-5 schedule?
  • AND THAT ^^^ is the main stress in my relationship I’ve realized. We both work for startups. We both need to set better work boundaries so at 8 PM we’re not both still working and snapping at each other. I’m going to start going on more pug walks with him and he’s going to stop working when I’m cooking so we can catch up. 
  • If I don’t do something to get sweaty today, I’ll just officially turn into a jiggly jelly ball forever. #fatAndHappy
  • I work for a startup in DC. The tech team (all three of us) are on the west coast and it’s been super easy and great to work remotely (besides keeping yourself motivated at home). HOWEVA, the rest of the team is flying out to DC for product planning and I was kinda hurt and left out until I realized they’re SENIOR developers and even if they do keep me on after my apprenticeship period, I’ll still be a junior developer and why would they fly me out there anyway?
  • New Odezsa on Spotify has been guiding my workflow. So good. I keep imagining home yoga flows to it too, so why don’t I just do it?!

Last meeting complete.

Sometimes when my Skype meetings run long, I multitask - I flip through emails or my Dash and I just gotta say, this week’s Etsy email was ON POINT. Pet costumes?! 

Luna has to have it. We can match! 

I feel so underwhelmed with what I accomplished this week and all I want to do is drink bourbon and play Destiny and I know that doesn’t really help my “what I accomplish is what I’m worth” feeling but that feeling is 1) bullshit, 2) tomorrow is a new day, and 3) I’m excited to go HAM on some ham. 

It’s Friday. I can’t figure out anything today. I can only relate the code I’m trying to work through to throwing a bunch of necklaces together in a satchel and later discovering they’ve all formed into a giant ball of a mess, a rat king if you will. My hair has stained my white shirt a collage of purple, pink, blue, and teal and whatever other colors are floating around there. Oops. I’m so behind in my Word Press project.
Deep breaths.
Day saviors - purple lipstick (MAC Violetta), Odezsa on Spotify, grateful I had the foresight to spend too much money during the summer on comfy scarves for the fall, froyo later, and complete monopoly over the condo to play Destiny with friends since D has a team bonding night planned.

All black every season. Sloppy but it&#8217;ll do upside down braid bun. 

Radishes with goat butter. Oysters. Smoked trout caviar, creme fraiche, and chips. Sardine avocado bruschetta. Branzino. Cheese. A bottle of wine. All split in an impromptu dinner at Westward with my father. I miss him so much.

Forever a proponent of if you feel like crap, invest a little extra time in self care and outfit choice for a self esteem boost.
I’ve been living in this white crop top and fancy high waisted drawstring pants for two days now.

Been working super hard lately. I can&#8217;t wait to go to MAC today (even though it&#8217;s in my old stomping grounds, ew) and be like, &#8220;Here&#8217;s my credit card. Please match your colors to my hair. Ok, thanks, bye.&#8221;
