Thoughts on a Thursday

It’s Thursday which means a couple of things…

  • It’s Friday-eve (which means Friday is right around the corner which also means that a glorious three-day weekend is bringing up the rear. I think that deserves a TGIT, no?)
  • In honor of it being TGIT, you most definitely need to go out tonight and celebrate. Or you could pull a ‘me’ and stay in with a box of¬†wine and some Game of Thrones. Both equally awesome.
  • It’s time for the latest edition of “Thoughts on a Thursday.” ūüôā
  1. I led a writing workshop this morning and one of the prompts I gave my students to get their creative juices flowing was in regards to their school and work: What is one thing that motivates you to work hard and do your best? I got so many great responses, but my favorite by far was from a student who said that her driving force, her inspiration was‚Ķ.cookies. Obviously I had to epically high-five her (and then nominate her for President 2016. The world needs more people, more leaders like her–and more cookies. Just all of the cookies).
  2. Hot damn, guys! How is it already September?!!? There are only 4 more months left of 2015 which is total crazy pants. My grandparents/parents were right: life really does speed up the older you get. If it’s okay, I think I’m just gonna stay 28 forever.
  3. I just realized that I prefer to chew my food on mostly the right side of my mouth? Is this a thing? Or am I just weird. Wait, don’t answer that.
  4. Speaking of which, there is no greater feeling in the world than finally, FINALLY getting that piece of Snickers bar that was stuck in your teeth unstuck. Rewarding myself with a Twix bar later.
  5. My fall softball league starts in a week and I am way too excited. Like, ‘I’ve already laid out my glove, shoes, and lucky underwear’ excited. I’m playing two nights a week this season which means this girl has got to invest in a really good knee brace. And Advil. Just all of the Advil. My grandparents/parents were right: It really sucks getting old.
  6. I just found out that if you were to sit down and watch every Harry Potter movie, with 5 minutes allowed in between each one for pee/snack breaks, it would take a little over 22 hours. I am going to have to do this at some point. And by some point I mean this weekend obviously. Who wants to come over (and bring popcorn?)
  7. These sunrises never get old. Denver, you’re alright you know that?11059887_10100760119992092_656416317147637831_n

Snow much to talk about



How’s everyone doing? Hanging in there? We all know that the start to the week can be a bit rough, especially after a fantastic weekend (or¬†one too many drinks–and by drinks I mean milkshakes.¬†Being ice cream drunk is a very real thing and so are the massive brain freeze headaches that follow)¬†so I thought I would provide¬†a little¬†comic relief in the form of some random Monday musings.

Feel free to play along in the comments below!

1. GAME OF THRONES! I mean, I just, I can’t. Last night was the season five finale and while I won’t give away any spoilers, I will say WHAT THE FUDGCICLE?! It was brutal. Just snow, snow brutal.


2. Confession: I have the bladder the size of a pea (pun intended but not really because¬†it really is¬†the size of a small legume). I literally have to pee every half hour on the dot, which is fine during the day I guess, but when I have to wake up in the middle of the night on the regular to relieve myself, it’s just annoying. And apparently dangerous. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten up, still half asleep, stumbled into the bathroom and without turning on the light (because that would just wake me up even more), have fallen into the toilet. I wish I was joking. And I know you’re laughing (which in all honesty is totally warranted), but you try finding the seat, in the dark, when your¬†99.5% incoherent. It’s hard, guys. Like, really hard. What we need is…are you ready for it? A glow-in-the-dark toilet. RIGHT?! And sure I could just get a normal night-light, but would want normal when you could have a light-up throne instead? Plus, you can pretty much almost guarantee there¬†won’t be anymore¬†unfortunate pit falls (Nope. That pun is definitely intended). Thoughts, Mark Cuban?

3. Note to self: Apply and reapply. I might have forgotten that second part this weekend. Burnt. To. A. Crisp. Youch.

4. But since we’re on the topic of SPF, I’d like to issue a formal complaint with Banana Boat for NOT smelling like banana anymore. Not impressed, BB. Not impressed.

5. To all of my fellow book hoarders aficionados, if you haven’t yet discovered Thriftbooks, do it. Now. Right now. Best-selling used books starting at just $2?! Crazy sauce. This has trouble written all over it.

6. Speaking of books, I just finished reading really¬†good one by¬†Peter Clines. The Fold is a story that¬†is a mind-binding, page-turning, high-octane Sci-Fi thriller. It reads like a cross between Michael Crichton, Sherlock Holmes, and the Syfy 90‚Äôs TV show, Sliders. I’m usually not a huge fan of sci-fi but this may have turned me. Definitely check it out if you can and let me know what you think!

7. I’m constantly reminded of how lucky and incredibly blessed I am to have such amazing friends and family.

8. Whole Foods sells freshly-churned peanut and almond butter and I am ob.sessed. I may or may not have gone through an 8 oz. jar of the chunky honey roasted PB in less than a week. Okay, I did. I totally did.

9. But seriously, though. Glow-in-the-dark toilet!
