What I’m Listening To
What I’m Watching
You heard it here first, folks: women can be funny. And raunchy. And the world won’t explode.
How I’m Working Out
It’s been all yoga, all the time this week. To be honest, I’m just being lazy post-runathon that I did in March. Still working on striking that balance again.
What I’m Eating
Yes I live in Chicago so of course I love deep dish…but in my opinion the best kind of pizza is thin crust cheese with onions and green peppers. I rarely get to order exactly what I want on my pizza (pizza ordering is all about compromising, isn’t it? The worst) but my dad happens to be the most low-maintenance date out there so I was a happy camper.
Iced coffee is back at Starbucks. “Lore” is happy.
My new doctor told me to “take a lollipop!” as I left. It was amazing. Then I saw that her lollipops were organic. The world these days, I tell ya…
What I’m Loving
In what can only be described as the most random occurrence in the history of existence, this little cartoon character has been mentioned to me twice in the past week. Haven’t thought about him in almost two decades, but I know you all remember Gus Gus:
I used to think when I grew up I’d be Cinderella. But now I’m realizing I relate to Gus Gus more and more every day. Have you ever tried to make your way from the kitchen to your bed with your laptop, phone, water bottle, and your assortment of midnight snacks? Enter the photo above.
Balancing all the things life throws at me makes me feel like Gus Gus a lot too. Who knew so many parallels could be drawn from a childhood cartoon? For example, most of the (many) things I spend my time on I do not get paid for. I know that I chose this kind of life and I’m working towards my goals with everything I do. I also know that life isn’t all about money. But I’d be lying if I said money isn’t something I worry or care about. Finding the balance, handling it all is tricky — spending time volunteering, blogging, and taking on more responsibilities at work while still dealing with loans, living in an expensive city on my own, and trying to save is, in a word, scary.
That being said, can you imagine how boring life would be as Cinderella? I’m happy balancing all my cheese, thank you very much. Gus Gus for the win.
