WHY DON’T YOU? #198

Don’t worry, y’all, I didn’t die or get kidnapped or follow my dreams and runaway to become a Romanian hay farmer. I have been insanely busy lately with college and work — and living my best life in Mexico City for ten days — but now I’m going to get back on track. I have literally dozens of posts I need to make about my summer in Mexico City last year…I’m starting to think I should just condense them into a few instead. I’ll figure that out later. But for now, I’m not going to think about it. I can barely think of anything right now, if I’m honest. These ideas are from like a million years ago. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Monday:

Why don’t you go on a cute little vacation away from home? This weekend, I was snowed in at my sister’s house for three days. Like, it was actually a hella bad blizzard. I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen so much snow. I only meant to stay for the night, but thankfully I brought a bunch of work that needed done. Away from my normal obligations, I was able to focus on eating and working. And I got so much done. I got stuff done I’ve been meaning to do since last year. And I ate so much. It was amazing. Get away. 

Tuesday:

Why don’t you buy yourself something fabulously unnecessary? I received an email from Woot, this online shopping site I’ve used since high school, with an advertisement for a half price fat freezer. I’ve been intrigued by CoolSculpting for ages, so I decided that for $60 I couldn’t go wrong with a DIY machine. It should be here soon. I can’t wait. I’m going to be so thin and so frozen and lol this is ridiculous.

Wednesday:

Why don’t you tell me where my favorite coat disappeared to? It does not make any sense. I took it with me on my day trip to Kansas City and I wore it home. I distinctly recall it. Two days later, I couldn’t find it anywhere. I called all the places I’ve been. I checked under seats in my car. I even went through pictures on my phone to see if I could spot it in recent pictures. nope. It’s vanished. And I’m heartbroken. And I’m confused. [Update: Long story but I found it soaking in melting snow in my backyard. I used it to shimmy in a window one day when I locked myself outside and had to basically strip to squeeze through my bathroom window… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ]

Thursday:

Why don’t you spend an entire afternoon asleep taking a much needed nap? As you’ve surely picked up on over the latest series of posts, I’ve been stupidly busy. Lately, it’s been normal for me to go to bed at about two o’clock in the morning. I’ve felt like a walking corpse. Looked like one, too. This week, I don’t have quite so much to do and I am catching up on my sleep debt. It’s been fabulous. It’s so good. I feel almost like myself again. Don’t ever work full time and then take more than a full semester of classes at the same time. I was insane in the membrane.

Friday:

Why don’t you all learn how to drive and stop annoying the crap out of me? I am a pretty meditative person usually, but there is something that absolutely enrages me:  when somebody pulls out in front of me as I’m zipping along. How stupid are these people? I was speedily driving to work this morning and a semi pulled out in front of me on the highway. There was nobody behind me. There was no need. I had to slam on my brakes and swerve to avoid smashing my car into the truck. Get a clue, dummies, my horn has never had such a workout.
