what can i say? i love self help.
Every Friday, Tiny Buddha (have I told you about Tiny Buddha?) emails out a quote along with a bunch of inspirational articles. I get excited when I see the email come in each week because, crazy enough, the quotes always seem to be eerily relevant to my life. I’m sure this is a self-fulfilling prophecy, but nonetheless, I still really enjoy taking something away from them every Friday. I...
I’m drinking a grande Pumpkin Spice Americano. It doesn’t taste anything at all like the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Did I do something wrong!? If I still had a cube, I would most certainly post a Feet-Up-Friday pic. (Long table desks of side by side seating here, now. Could you imagine?) I got a really great Fall trench coat, and I’m excited to soon have temperatures that allow me to...
life's like a box of chocolates?
The really long post… I finally have time to write, and naturally I’m exhausted and want to just go to sleep. I hate that. I feel like I’ve neglected this little sweet blog of mine so much in the past 2 months, and it makes me sadder by the day. Not because I think you guys really want or need to know the ins and outs of my life, but because this really has been that special...

there is a teen-mom geary look-a-like in my office
I swear. It’s unreal!!!!
I spilled iced coffee down my right pants leg just as I was walking into the office this morning. I was trying to get my ID card out of my wallet which was in my bag, while simultaneously holding my iced coffee filled to the brim and it squirted out the top where the straw was in (HATE that). As if the humidity causing my hair to frizz wasn’t bad enough (Will I ever walk into work with my...
I can literally watch the same episodes of anything on Bravo (this morning, R.Zoe) up to seven times each before starting to debate changing the channel. Also, I have a spa day in 2 hours! Massage and facial, which I never do. Good day!

email from Jenine: some girl that got engaged not too long before me (who i barely know but learned this from…facebook.), just the other night posted a status “JUST BOOKED THE PHOTOGRAPHER & BAND…10.2012, CANT WAIT<3” - it was the last thing I saw before bed & it caused me to have anxiety & bad dreams all night. I kept thinking “am i acting too...

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of...

Third day in a row. 300 cals a pop. Becoming addicted to this. I can safely say I would have never experienced if not for tumblr. So thank you, and I’m mad at you. $4.30 each morning is not necessary! But then again, how can you put a price on happiness?
happy hug a vegetarian day!
I’m actually being serious. Based on the site above, I’m really excited for tomorrow!

Miniature Magnolia cupcakes for a birthday in the kitchen. We were talking about how cute they were, and that it was okay to have two. I suddenly had something important to share. I was trying to say how I could be just as content with a mini cupcake as I could a big cupcake. It’s all mental, really. So I say…”Little ones are just as satisfying as big ones in the end.” Immediately realize what had...
Now that I’m a commuter (at least part-time) I have far too much time on my hands each morning and evening to think. As the wheels on the bus go round and round, (or when they’re not going round at all, because I’m trapped in anxiety-ridden traffic) my mind wanders. I think about all sorts of things. Funny things, sad things, scary things, exciting things, weird things, and well…things. I didn’t...
why mark? why.
WHY does Facebook have to constantly evolve every few months to a new format? As if enough things don’t stress me out on a daily basis! I need consistency in my life, damnit. Enough with the changes! I could have been happy with the deletable wall of 2004, for crying out loud. Less is more, I say.

Ever see their shopping bag? Pretty awesome marketing tactic. Staring at this for the past week on my desk. Some of these apply far too well. Stress is related to 99% of all illness. That which matters the most should never give way to that which matters the least. Do one thing a day that scares you. Drink fresh water and as much water as you can. Water flushes unwanted toxins from your body and...

Trench-coat style. Any recommendations? No time to online shop at work = I need your help!
