So, I’ve realized these last few months that my focus has really started to circle around a lot of the negative aspects in my life as opposed to the positive. I realize this is happening because I’m not completely happy with the place I am in personally, so, as human nature would have it (or maybe its the Aries slash perfectionist in me), my mind constantly goes to the things that may...
You know what’s crazy? I’m going to be 30 in two months. My life has already started to flash before my eyes and I’m slightly freaked out. I realize I have been totally absent from this blog for the past year or so, but I’d say the big THREE-OH requires a resurrection from the bloggers-graveyard to “commemorate” this terrifying occasion. I’m trying to get...
Dear BLOG, I’m so sorry I’ve neglected you recently. I haven’t forgotten about you. In fact, you cross my mind at times and I’m reminded how much I miss you, but I just don’t know what to say to you right now. I have no thoughts, no news, no rants and raves to bitch to you about. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zero. My life right now is pretty slow and pretty boring. I guess...
I went to get some blood drawn today and there is a guy that works there who always hits on me. I’m NOT interested. I frequent that particular lab every 4 months or so and he’s been there the past two times. First of all, let me just say I think it’s very unprofessional to hit on customers. Especially in an environment like that. I mean, I’m getting poked with a freakin’ needle and urinating...
hey boys. do this.
Dear Boys, If you want to do something sweet that is cheap and will absolutely melt a girl’s heart, buy them some flowers. BETTER YET, SEND them some flowers. As in delivery. Yes, old skool. I guarantee you, you’ll get super bonus points. What is it about flowers that girls love so much? I’ll tell you what it is. It’s a gesture that has been around for hundreds of...
I think I have ADD
Is it possible to develop ADD as an adult? I think I have it. Self diagnosed, that is. I never used to have ADD. I used to be able to sit down and write a 20 page paper in like 3 hours in college. It was so easy to just “get in the zone” and focus. Not so much now. Not at all. Now, my mind is constantly in a million places at once and not because I have a...
I read an article the other day in the Huffington Post that was interesting to me, but yet not very surprising. Some guy, Dr. Ali Binazir (and I apologize Dr. Ali, I don’t know who you are or what your “cred” is) wrote an article titled, “Is Los Angeles the toughest town for Singles?” The answer is: YES! Thank you for analyzing the question and putting it into article form. Finally, after years...
I’ve always wanted to create a bucket list, but I’ve never actually taken the time to sit down and write out all of the things I want to do and accomplish in my lifetime. In recent deep thoughts about the current state of my life (see previous blog post “More to Life” http://twentysomethingwoes.tumblr.com/post/872295258/more-to-life) I’ve decided that now is the perfect time to...
Went out the other night to a bar. Errrr, lounge. Whatever the kids are calling it these days. I encountered something that night that I’ve encountered on numerous occasions. Numerous meaning almost every time I go for a night on the town. If you are a relatively cute single girl, you probably know what I’m talking about. The persistent ugly guy. The PUGs....
Why is it, whenever you stop thinking about someone, they manage to somehow weasel their way back into your life? It’s like they receive a little notification via their brain that says, “Hi (insert jerk-face guy’s name here)! Just thought I would let you know that (insert your name here) has just stopped thinking about you. Time to ping her!” It seriously never fails. ...
future kelly kapowski
My old college roommate and I used to aspire to be like Kelly Kapowski. (Shout out to Ash… wud up guuurrrrl!) As in Saved by the Bell Kelly Kapowski. We really did. She just had it all. The style, the body, the boy. (Hello? Zack Morris!) Everything came so easily for her. She was the pretty, popular girl yet everyone always seemed to like her. Isn’t that...
to the happy facebook couples
There are a few people on my Facebook that only seem to post pictures of themselves with their significant other. Every. Single. Picture. WHY? Please, tell me why. That tells people that either A. You’re obsessed with that person. or B. You have neglected everyone else in your circle and that other person is your only other current attachment to the human life form. Lame, totally lame. ...
more to life
I think I am going through a quarter life crisis. I’ve really started to evaluate my life recently. My job. My love life (or lack thereof). My place in this world. I’ve ultimately decided that I really don’t feel completely fulfilled. Deep huh? There’s got to be more to life. I want to be able to travel the world for a year at the very least. Learn and experience...
If you know me, you probably know about my strange affection for a certain musician by the name of John Mayer. You’re probably thinking, “He has some good songs, but he’s such a douche-bag.” That’s the response I typically get. Listen, I know this. But I still want to marry the guy. Okay, so he’s not really the marrying kind. At least not now. He’s...
Why is it that sometimes, you just need your Mom to make all things in life better? And it usually works. At least temporarily. She’ll take you to the grocery store to stock up on the “healthy” more expensive food that you usually avoid buying on a regular basis because you cringe at spending more than $80.00 at the grocery store per visit. She’ll even make you your...
exercise, i hate you.
Why do some of us ladies (“us ladies” meaning me) have such a hate/hate relationship with EXERCISE? It’s terrible, it really is. I just hate working out. I’m not good at it. I hate sweating. Okay, and maybe I’m a little lazy. I mean, who wouldn’t rather be sitting on their ass watching TV instead? Right? Anyone who says otherwise is lying through their teeth. ...
The last thing you ever want or expect to hear from your Dad on the other end of the phone on a Saturday morning at 8AM is, “Pal, I have some bad news.” The worst starts running through your mind. Before you can even ask what the news is, tears are already streaming down your face, your voice is cracking and you can barely catch your breath. “What?” I manage to mutter....

This is the Mariah I know and love. Amazing voice, amazing message. Love. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2xirQn2kX0 “I WISH YOU WELL” - Mariah Carey This goes out to you and you and you You know who you are Hmm hmm hmm When glory days turn to stormy nights You must have been so petrified Didn’t you, didn’t you feel so cold You against the world in a losing fight...
boys are stupid.
Well, I did it yesterday. I broke up with a boy. After a year long “relationship,” I felt that I was finally ready to cut the cord. It was like a light bulb went off in my head and suddenly I was like Beyonce, all strong and fierce ala the “Independent Women” video - stilettos, wind-in-hair and all. It’s funny when that light bulb goes off. I’ve heard about...
Well, here I am. Day two on the blog front. Surprisingly, my brain is just swirling with thoughts, encounters and situations to write about. This blogging thing could be easier than I thought. Let’s cut to the chase. So, I have this pet peeve. I have a lot of pet peeves, but I’d say this particular thing takes the freakin’ MOTHER LOAD title for ultimate pet peeve-isms. Nothing bothers me more...
So, I guess this is my first “blog.” How exciting? For me maybe. You, maybe not so much. The truth of the matter is, I’ve always wanted to create a blog but I honestly never thought that: A. I’d be able to keep it up (i get lazy sometimes) and B. That my life was interesting enough. But, a funny thing happened recently. I turned 28. TWENTY EIGHT. That number seriously...
