I survived finals. I am home. And I promise I will post something substantial soon, but for now I am going to crawl into bed and read my book. Which I CHOSE MYSELF. Thanks for all your lovin' & support!

P.S. I did finally shave my legs. It was a hairy experience. (haha...)

Taking Some Time Off for Finals

But if you think you've been neglected, you should check out the hair on my legs.

There is snow on the ground.

The windchill today was below zero.

The cover to my gas tank froze shut.

I have given away all of my spare change.

Hot apple cider mix in the checkout line caused me to make an impulse purchase.

I have windburn from Christmas shopping. Indoors.

I have to wrap myself in a blanket to stay warm.

And I kind of love it.

Psych paper written.

Women's studies presentation done.

Pizza consumed.

Now I need sleep, 'cause that lit paper isn't going to write itself.

Last night, I reached a new milestone in my adult life...

I cleaned up my own vomit.

It's not like I haven't puked as a Big Kid before, I've just always been hugging my BFF the toilet.

But apparently at 3am, my body had the urge to purge RIGHT NOW. (Thankfully I had gotten up to pee, so my bathroom floor got it, not my carpet.)

The bright side is that while I was fairly certain I was going to die for about 15 minutes, that "if I puke I'll feel better thing" is spot on. So while I'm a bit afraid of making my antibiotic angry again (no way it was the 10 snickerdoodles I ate last night...) I actually feel fine.

I just looked in the mirror and I don't exactly look fine...but I'll take what I can get.

Check Me Out!

Wendy over at Red Boots has been been doing an awesome Letter to 16-year-old Me Project and mine went up today. Read my letter! And while you're over there, check out the letters other people have written to themselves. Wendy's blog is one of my favorites, so be sure to look around!

This is Why I Shouldn't Bother Getting Out of Bed

Today I have successfully:

-put my contacts in the wrong eyes. and almost left them that way because I hadn't worn them in a while & I thought maybe I just needed some time to get used to them again. did I mention I'm going to be driving?

-made myself pb&j and went to put the pb in the fridge. which would not have been so bad except I then went to put the j in the cupboard.

-realized that I blew off a friend last weekend.

-realized that it took me almost a week to realize I'd blown off a friend last weekend. and that nyquil makes me stupid.

-checked my email after immediately logging out of my email account.

-discovered that my inhaler expired 3 years ago. (how much does that really matter, anyway?)

-discovered the above because last night I was having an asthma attack and freaked out because I actually did not remember what an asthma attack felt like. I knew there was a reason I carried that damn thing with me everywhere...

-walked into a room and had no idea why I was there (multiple times...and my apartment has 3 rooms).

And I've only been awake for an hour and a half.

I Want It Back!

...And it hasn't even really snowed yet. Boo. I am not a fan of winter.
