Thursday Ten: Turning Tides edition

1. This deserves its own blog post but it’s Thursday and I am not yet ready to string all my words together but…yesterday, I received two job offers. Two different companies. Different pros and cons to each opportunity but ultimately, I was able to make a decision and accept one of the offers and I will begin on Monday and I…sigh…. I feel so tremendously relieved.

2. After the first offer, I went to the mall with a 40% off coupon and bought myself a super soft long sleeve tee from Banana Republic. Then? To Costco where I bought two gigantic jars of peanut butter and a bouquet of tulips. I’ve been in deprivation mode for awhile, not wanting to splurge or buy myself things. To shake that out of my head for a bit was a treat.

3. Bingeing on Frosted Flakes may seem like a good idea in the moment but eventually, you’ll just have a stomach ache and your teeth will have a weird pseudo-sugary film on them.

4. Is there no quiz people won’t take? I now know what country star you’d be, what decade you should have lived in, where you should live, how many children you should have, what dog breed you are, and what washed-out 80s hair band rocker you are. Just…enough. Sometimes I think I should create a website that just had stupid quizzes and sit back and rake in the money.

5. I wonder what the divorce rate is for the couples on HGTV’s Love it or List It. It’s gotta be high.

6. Happiness is trying a new taco place and finding out that it’s pretty damn good. And reasonably priced. And has salsa that is OUT OF THIS WORLD. What I’m saying is, WHOOHOO I HAVE A NEW TACO PLACE.

7. Sometimes I’m a jerk. Caption on acquaintance’s Facebook photo: “You are the air I breathe.” Thought that runs through my head: “That’s lame. You are the air I breathe? Know what air I breathe? AIR. AIR IS THE AIR I BREATHE. Dummy.”

8. I’ve been spending more time on the treadmill trying to get back into running. It would probably translate into my pants fitting me better if it wasn’t for those stupid Frosted Flakes.

9. I have been filling my days with an obscene amount of things to do while I’ve been without work because I was afraid to sit still. Now? I wish I had been lazier.

10. In the interest of being lazy, can someone else fold my laundry for me? All of it? There’s like four baskets full and I don’t want to deal with it. Sigh. Ugh.
