I’ve been reading a lot of cool tumblrs and it’s time for me to get my act together and get this rolling again.
I read so many amazing fashion/design/inspiration blogs on a regular basis and want to share all of the beautiful things that I find. And maybe talk about myself a little bit, even though the idea of blogging about my life has always seemed silly/narcissistic. Oh well, here goes nothing!
I still am pretty bad at blogging consistently, but am trying harder! Last week I decided to put my tumblr app on my phone to good use and typed up a post I was really happy with. To my dismay, only my first two paragraphs appeared, which was pretty discouraging. oh well.
I am chilling here at work, listening to Feist radio on Pandora and looking at all of my favorite fashion and inspiration blogs patiently waiting for my 3-day weekend to begin. Josh is coming in tonight and we are planning on going on a fancy date when I get home. We don’t really have set plans for the weekend, but here is a list of the things I want to do:
If the weather is nice, go to the beach
Have a 4th o’ July BBQ
Bake an apple pie with Josh (to get in the holiday spirit)
Go on another beautiful bike ride (maybe pack a picnic)
Go to the movies (my favorite thing to do in the world) and enjoy a big bucket of popcorn
I’m sure whatever we do the weekend will be great. Just 5.5 hours to go!
Workplace Copy Editor’s Revenge Takes Form Of Unhyphenated Word
February 27, 2006 | Issue 42•09
BOSTON—Bruce Huntoon, a copy editor at Pilot magazine, intentionally did not correct the copy of columnist Justin Mann Monday. “I am tired of that insufferable asshole’s mean-spirited jokes,” Huntoon said. “So, when he described the carburetor warmer as a ‘twentieth century’ invention, I decided to leave the copy untouched and let him deal with the consequences of his actions. The fucker.” Huntoon said the unhyphenated compound modifier is the most extreme step he has ever taken, adding that he drafted a resignation notice that he will hand in should his superiors notice the omission.
So, it’s been quite a while since I’ve updated this little diddy. Being a commuting city girl has been extremely exhausting, but I am still having a good time. It pretty much feels like I never left S&P. The Mizzou crowd this year is really great and I love that for two summers in a row I’ve been able to make friends from school in NYC and spend a good part of my day laughing.
I’m still trying to figure out how to make the most of my commuting time because I am usually too tired to do much of anything productive. My commute is about 4 hours total each day and consists of car rides with Josh’s dad, riding the PATH in and out of the city and taking a train all of the way to Josh’s cute neighborhood at the end of the day. I usually end up listening to music or playing with my phone, but I would like to start reading, journaling and studying for the GRE (yikes!).
Last weekend Josh came home and we had a wonderful time and rested a lot. My weekend basically consisted of eating a lot of Japanese food, sleeping in and seeing The Hangover, which turned out to be hilarious. This week I was able to stay in the city after work and hang out with the S&P crew; on Tuesday we saw Pelham 1,2,3 (not as fabulous/offensive as the original, unfortunately) and last night we went uptown for Rae’s 22nd birthday din at a cute italian restaurant near Times Square.
Tomorrow after work I am heading off to Philly to visit Josh because he is having a concert and partay at his house on Saturday night. Last night he was injured while playing hockey (he’s okay now) but that makes me want to see him even sooner.
I’ll try and update more and I hope everyone has a great weekend!
I am now officially moved into my summer residence with Josh’s family in New Jersey. I get to sleep in a big new bed! hurrah!
The house is tucked into the forest and is beautiful and relaxing. I start work at S&P on Monday and am excited to go back and see everyone and start another adventure. Word on the street is that we will have to share our cubicles, but there is also a new crew of Mizzou peeps and I’m excited to meet them all.
I have goofed around with Josh and his little brother all day. The highlights were going to the soccer fields (I read Jessica Valenti’s newest book The Purity Myth and they played) and riding bikes to the grocery store and then having a BBQ on the deck.
I am exhausted and happy and still need to unpack.
