Listening : I’ve been listening to The Killers’ Direct Hits album a lot lately. I mean, I love them so much. My favorite song on repeat would have to be For Reasons Unknown.
Liking : Michael Phelp’s game face more and more. I was watching it last night and naturally, I had to take a picture of his face on our television screen. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, just Google it.
Loving : My booboo Wolfgang. He’s such a smart potato.
Bookmarking: A new planner. I don’t know if I’m going to get a Bando one again or go back to being a Moleskine girl? I would really love to have our kate spade planner, but it’s just too heavy!

“Must love decorating for holidays, mischief, kissing in cars, and wind chimes. no specific height, weight, hair color, or political affiliation required but would prefer a warm spirited non racist. cynics, critics, pessimists, and “stick in the muds” need not apply. voluptuous figures a plus. any similarity in look, mind set, or fashion sense to Mary Poppins, Claire Huxtable, snow white, or Elvira wholeheartedly welcomed. i am dubious of actresses, fellons and lesbians but don’t want to rule them out entirely. must be tolerant of whistling, tickle torture, James Taylor, and sleeping late. i have a slight limp, eerily soft hands, and a preternatural love of autumn. i once misinterpreted being called a coal-eyed dandy as a compliment when it was intended as an insult. i wiggle my feet in my sleep, am scared of the dark, and think the Muppets Christmas Carol is one of the greatest films of all time. all i want is butterfly kisses in the morning, peanut butter sandwiches shaped like a heart, and to make you smile until it hurts.”
-Matthew Gray Gubler, on his perfect woman.
Matthew, where you at tho?! I think it’s pretty fair to say that I’m saving what’s left of my life finding either a Matthew Gray Gubler knock-off or, finding MGG himself wherever he may be hahaha!
Been having way too much fun with social media lately. I’m especially loving Instagram’s Stories! BUT! I still love me some SnapChat! I save that app for when I do crazy, stupid things (refer to the flower crown selfie) like sending slow motion snaps and embarrassing selfies that I’m just not ready for everyone to see.
Also, two days ago, I mistakenly sent one of my embarrassing Snapchats to the wrong person. TALK ABOUT AWKWARD. But, c’est la vie. I brushed it off after shutting down mentally and freaking out for two seconds. 😂
Me: Where are you guys going?
Drazen: We’re eating out, you wanna come with?
Me: No. But where are you guys eating?
Drazen: We’re going to an Indonesian restaurant. Do you want me to bring you something?
Drazen: What do you want?
Drazen: *gave me the most confused look*
- Watched some good ole Olympic games because that’s what adults do.
- Cooked myself a mean pot of instant Mac n’ Cheese because it defeats my whole philosophy on what Mac n’ Cheese should taste like. (Im really desperate)
- Continue reading The Goldfinch. I haven’t read a book in a while, so this should be an interesting activity.
- Listening to The Killers’ Direct Hits album on Spotify.
- Well now, I’m listening to Pretty Wings by Maxwell, but I’m pretty sure I’ll come back to listening to the Killers in a lil while.
- Spent an hour going crazy looking for my laptop charger. Like I dug through the trash crazy! (I’ve been known to throw stuff away sometimes without my knowledge) Newsflash: it was buried in my clothes.
- Played with my camera. Desperately needing a new profile pic.
- Thinking of convincing my older brother to go to downtown Pontiac with me to catch Pokemon.
Today I unearthed my old yearly planners and decided to stroll down memory lane. I wanted to see what my priorities were two to three years ago. I cracked open my 2014 planner and found this note that I wrote on the Address Book section (let’s be real, who still needs this section?).
I don’t exactly remember what made me write this note, what happened that made me feel the need to sit down and actually write a letter of affirmation to myself. I just know that I must’ve been feeling really down that day because it’s not a usual thing for me to physically write a letter.
Whatever it was that I was going through that one particular day, I am happy that I’m able to read this letter from years ago. I’m also happy that no matter how hard that day was for me, that I am here, I made it, and I don’t feel it nor do I remember the feeling anymore.
Also, who knew that I could be so inspirational?!
What a nice reminder, Duane from two years ago!
You say I’m a dreamer, we’re two of a kind
both of us searching for some perfect world we know we’ll never find
so perhaps I should leave here, yeah yeah go far away
but you know that there’s no where that I’d rather be than with you here today
You know, I honestly believe that I belong in the 80’s. Music made much more sense back then. But! I’m also thankful that I get to be a part of this progressive era whilst being able to relive a time that I was never a part of. I don’t know if I’m explaining this magic right. All I want to say is that I’m thankful for the words and music that continues to transcend.
God, help this weirdo.
