Let’s Get Real Vol. 4

Vodka and Soda

– I came back from vacation with serious intentions of being a more consistent blogger. I’ve been back a week and a half and I’ve only show up to play three times including today. But I do still have plans of being here more often

– I have a terrible habit of writing work info in my blogging notebook, and writing posts in my work notebook. Its really hard to keep track of where all my ideas are jotted down. I really need to stop scribbling in whatever notebook is closest.

– It really frustrates me when I’m up front and honest with a guy and tell him that I have issues. I’m selfish and cold, materialistic, a consumerist, I put my career and my family first, I like to be in control, and I don’t enjoy cooking and cleaning, and he says that none of that stuff bothers him, he’s still really into me. And then later when he finds it all out for himself, he tells me that I have issues. Well no shit Sherlock, I fucking told you that already, not my fault you assumed I was lying.

– Last night for some strange reason I was feeling productive, I did a little laundry and put some chicken breasts in the slow cooker on high so that they’d be done before bed, and I would have food for lunch today. I even went so far as to brag to a friend that I’d make an excellent housewife, obviously I was joking. This morning I woke up to a seriously nasty stench. Turns out I had fallen asleep while watching Netflix, and let the chicken cook on high for 12 hours. Yummy. #housewifeiamnot

– Ever since my most recent trip to Sephora I’ve been obsessed with make-up. I’ve got a fairly extensive wish list happening. There are a few Bite Beauty lipsticks I’m dying to get my hands on, and a Too Faced Melted Lipstick that I’m dreaming about. #lipsticklovah

– Before I went on vacation I was on a Netflix binge, le duh, and I watched the movie Syrup. Ever since, I’ve been obsessed with being more like the character Six. She is a badass, powerful business woman with incredible style. Truth, I wanna be Six and I try to channel her on the daily.

– I hurt my ankle on a little excursion over the weekend, and I haven’t been able to wear heels all week. Its really interfering with my Sixness. And its pissing me right off.

– I feel hotter and more powerful in heels FYI.

– The fact that I had to sign up for Tumblr to find gifs for this post is irritating.

– Since I burned up my lunch, work is now buying Chinese for the entire staff. #perksofbeingtheboss

Let’s Get Real Vol. 3

Vodka and Soda
– I was a terrible blogger while on vacation, and didn’t post at all. Oops.
– Vacay recaps will be tough, cause I hardly took any pictures. I’m still not comfortable looking strange to people for taking pics or having the “I’m a blogger,” conversation. Need to get over that. Stat.

– A few weeks ago I went for a ride on bike, with a guy who’s bike I probably shouldn’t have been on the back of, but thats really not the point of this story. Bikes require real footwear, not flip flops. Real footwear require socks, and I hate socks. So as soon as flip flop season comes around, I forget about them, and thus there are never any clean. So I had to fish some out of the laundry, and well, lets just say its a good thing his nose never got anywhere near my feet.

– I’m seriously considering a re-branding. “Adventures” just doesn’t seem to jive well with my life these days. I’m just not sure what I would re-brand to, and also, re-brands are a lot of work and I’m lazy.
– Going back to work after a vacation is always a struggle. This time was no exception. I wanted to cry my entire drive to the office on Monday, and Tuesday, and Wednesday. Seriously, can’t I just get paid to be on permanent vacation?
– I have been a super loyal Air Canada customer. I never fly any other airline (mostly because of Aeroplan, duh) but I’m seriously ready to rip them a new one, and switch to West Jet. They lost one of my bags on my return flight last Saturday, and four days later they still have ZERO clue where it is. And their call center is in India, so you can imagine how much fun they are to deal with. There are soooo many things in that bag that I want, like right now. Like my brand new, never worn, took forever to find a pair that I loved, black Aldo stilettos. Ugh.
– I really love gifs, but I feel like that idiot in the classroom who has no clue what’s going on. Seriously, where do you all find all the amazingness that are gifs?

– It is disgustingly hot in my office. The a/c is not working. My feet are swollen, I had to ditch the heels. And basically, I’m sweaty and miserable, and wearing flats. Wednesday, what did I ever do to you??
