About Me

I live in Portland with my sexy beast of a husband, Matt, and our way-too-cute little dog, Ella. We like coffee, music, shows and listening to music at shows.

i started off more energetic than i should have considering my wretched weekend...

i left work with this nagging feeling that i should go back and tweak what i've been working on for 3 days...

i did not go back to work.

i found one decent excuse to cry without being judged.
and i'd barely count it as crying.

pub crawl, work, chang's and pineapple express, sleeping in, foooood, the duggar wedding and leaving with two bottles of wine.

if i don't write these things down, i'll forget. and i had so much fun at the pub crawl that i don't want to forget anytime soon.

you can only move as fast as
who's in front of you...

i saw this quote on another blog and i like it. i will most likely read it and re-read it til i see some improvement.

“We're never so vulnerable than when we trust someone - but paradoxically, if we cannot trust, neither can we find love or joy” -Walter Anderson

and then i'll re-read it some more.

i do my best thinking in the shower

so...i found myself trying to psychologically dissect a certain breed of person admist my pumpkin spice scented suds.

say there's this person that's quick point out when they've done something or that they have something, but never point out that someone else has done the same thing or has the same thing. make sense?

and THEN there's the person that hasn't done something or have something, but will unselfishly point out when someone else has.

i.e. "i don't have a corvette, but my brother does."
"i've never been to a mardi gras ball but my friend meghan has."
"i have been to france." although seven other ppl in the room have also been to france.

the first type i described annoys me. is it an inferiority complex that drives these people to look for any instance to bring up something they've done or have? how long does it take for other people to become as annoyed by this as i am? are they just deaf to the fact that they only talk about themselves and think their opinions are the only correct opinions?

i've decided that those type of people will stay at arms' length.

i was unchristian today

today, for the second time in my life, i totally went off on someone.

who was very deserving, mind you.

but still. i probably could've been a smidge classier about it, but i don't think it would've yielded the results i desired.

totally flipping out on people produces results.

considering how these last few months of been, i really don't need anything else to be angry about.

i love my husband.
