can’t pretend to be perfect

 

It was 82 degrees on Wednesday. On Sunday, it might snow. It will be light snow, probably mixed with rain, but it is still snow. Sob. What is going on? Why can’t winter just go away? We didn’t even have that bad of a winter. If it weren’t for that snowstorm, this winter would have been decent. I hate the cold, and I really hate snow.

Edit: Now it just looks like we are having a cold rainy day. I guess I can deal. 😉

I am so close to getting a free Fitbit Zip! It isn’t the fancy one, but I don’t care. I am getting it for free after all. I can’t wait to get it. I should have it in time for my Asheville/B-Day trip.

There it is! It is a glorified pedometer. 🙂   Click on the pic for more details. Oh, I’m getting it free through a wellness program at work.

I can’t keep eating ramen noodles. I tried to lower my grocery bill that way, but UGH! It makes me feel like crap and I gained a pound after only eating it for a week! This can’t continue. I’m done. Food costs too much. Living in this neighborhood costs too much (but I love the house). etc. etc.

I just got back from taking my dog to the park. The park is 2.8 miles from my house. (thanks, GPS). I had a good time. I know my dog had a better time. 🙂 We stayed there longer than I anticipated. I was supposed to do yard work today, but now college basketball is about to come on. Basketball is why I’m off today and tomorrow. I have to watch it. #Priorities

I snap chatted the whole “day at the park”. I was going to post a pic of me on Snapchat since the pic only lasts 24 hours, but I decided against it. One day I will snap a pic of myself. Anyhow, here are a few pics that didn’t make Snapchat:

This week I…

Music of the week: Andra Day, Jewel, Toby Lightman, Mariah Carey, The 1975, Troye Sivan, Hailee Steinfeld, Sia

I love Andra Day. Her music has been getting me through the week. Her voice can make anything sound good. Check her out if you are unfamiliar with her music. I chose a cover for this post, but her album is amazing.

 TV of the week:  Mad Men, basketball, political stuff

March Madness! yay. All basketball, all the time.

Movie of the week: none.

Books of the week: 

  • Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (page 334)

There was something wrong with her. She did not know what it was but there was something wrong with her. A hunger, a restlessness. An incomplete knowledge of herself.

I doubt I finish both books before they are due at the library, but I’m trying. This is what happens when you place a bunch of books on hold, and they all become available at the same time.

This weekend I will be doing yard work, tons of reading, my practicum, and watching basketball. The latter is what I’m looking forward to the most. I hope my teams win (UVA, Duke, and VCU). Happy weekend!
