UO/Vent/Confession Thursday!

UO(?): I think the Facebook photo montage things with "What I think XYZ is, What my parents thing XYZ is, what my friends think XYZ is, etc." are stupid.

Re: UO/Vent/Confession Thursday!

  • Because they ARE stupid. Especially the ones where they show that society thinks they vacation all the time or their friends thinking they make a ton of money. NO ONE THINKS THAT! So self important.

    I really hate these things too, they are rarely ever funny.

    Vent: I did a favor for someone this morning that I really didn't have time to do but I'm a team player yo, That person didn't give me all the necessary information to get this favor done without wasting a bunch of my time and causing me to about go into a blind rage. Sometimes I regret being nice.

  • I agree. They are stupid.

    UO: I wish our winter would have been cooler.

  • Confession/vent: I can't believe how out of shape I am when it comes to weightlifting. I never stopped working out and going to zumba, but I haven't done body pump consistently in about a year. I went on Monday and I am STILL sore. I'm walking like a 90yo woman. It's embarrassing! I thought I'd just be able to pick it up again, but this is awful. I guess it's my punishment for taking such a long hiatus.

    Confession: I stopped trying to lose weight and just decided to enjoy life before we start TTC and maintain where I am... but all I can thinking about is how I should be losing weight and I feel guilty all the time.

    Confession: I downloaded Bon Iver after SNL had a sketch where they made fun of how much white people love him... and they were right. I do love him. lol

  • Confession: I've decided to stop my food blog. Probably forever. I kind of think food blogging is pointless because now every recipe is online, so the novelty is gone. Unless I was ALWAYS creating new recipes, it's just regurgitated stuff over and over. Plus, I never use recipes from blogs, only from trusted sources. Oh well, I had a good 4 year run!

  • Another confession!

    Since it's been so freaking slow here AND my desk at work is dead, I've been spending more time on the cruise critic boards. I try to get into them, but they are SO LAME. It's just a bunch of old people, their sense of humors are so cheesy, they do things like post "double digit dances" for their ticker countdowns and the rules are so strict! I enjoy reading for the reviews and tips, but it's just not a place where I could spend tons of time interacting.

  • Confession: Reading posts on MM makes me so depressed. People's budgets and take home pay are so freaking much more than DH and mine. And while DH has room for growth in his career and salary, mine is probably about where it will always be unless I go back to school or something. I don't like accounting though, so I'd hate to commit myself even more to this career. I just don't know what I want to be when I grow up...

  • Confession: I got out of the house today (went to lunch with friends and then to my old job). I only get out like once a week and I am in such a good mood! I reallllyyyy need to get out more often. 

    Confession: I am starting to think I will never find jeans that fit me off the rack. It's really depressing. I'm only 3 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight but I only have 1 pair of non-maternity jeans that fit me. I have tried on probably 30 pair of jeans in the last couple months. :(

    Now that I'm working from home, have Violet here with me most days, and DH is travelling with work, if I don't make it a priority to go do something every day, I go absolutely nuts. I'm actually going to Target at 4 because I can't stay here any longer!  

    As much as I love my dogs and baby, being home with them all day is tough. I wish my family was around or DH's schedule wasn't as sucky as it is because I need to just escape from time to time!

  • Another confession: I am watching The Voice right now and I am in love with Adam's smile. It is SO cute.

  • Confession/OhCrap: I sent an email to the wrong person today at work. We are beta-testing something for a company, so they sent us some (very expensive) stuff for free to test out. I am working through the results, but part of what I was reading made me think we started with something totally different than what we were supposed to. Yeah, I sent that email to the company for which we are testing stuff instead of my boss. *head-desk*  I later realized that we didn't do anything wrong, so it's not terrible, but the overall content and tone were NOT up to the standard of what I would send to a new external vendor. UGH.

    LameVent: After ending the day on that kick-myself-in-the-face moment, I was excited to go meet a friend for spin class. It SUCKED. The lady's music choices were just dreadful. I finally heard the beginning of Livin on a Prayer and thought "ok.. I can deal with that"....... and it was the super-slow acoustic version. BOOOOOO.
