Only a few more days until I leave for my best friend’s wedding.  You’d think I’d be getting more done in preparation, but I apparently believe the next two evenings will be sufficient. Ha.  All I need to do, really, is ironing, packing, cleaning.  Um, yeah.  My friends who are driving up with me will be getting here Tuesday evening.  Tomorrow evening I’m supposed to finish my homework assignment for the next week (or, at least, get a good start on it).

Well.  It’ll all get done.  In the meantime, I’m having a beer and watching lame-ass movies.

Speaking of not lame-as movies, I just watched 52 Tuesdays on Netflix.  If you haven’t seen it, watch it.  It was thought provoking, and I thought well done.

I’ve been coming across the term ‘boi’ more and more, and I’m beginning to think it may be a fit for me.  I’m still not sure I’ll adopt it, but I’m going to spend some time trying it on, tasting it, seeing how it feels.

Folks, sometimes being an adult is hard.

Examples:

I’m trying to shop for healthcare plans since my new company doesn’t offer one, but does have a couple options that are instead of it.  Thankfully, my friend’s sister is a healthcare guru because of her job, so she’s totally helping me out.

I looked at the 2016 tax brackets, and can I just say how unfair it is to single folk?  Fuck you, married people.  You get all the money breaks, for reals.  (Remember that article about how single women are most likely to live in poverty in old age?  Must find life partner!)

I’m extra emotional from my period, and I still have to go to work.  Worse, in a new office where I know no one and know nothing.  And my mistakes feel like failures because everything feels worse from the hormones.

Starbucks is changing their reward program, and it sucks.  Maybe I’ll give up my gold card and give my business to other coffee shops instead.

I miss my best friend, and I hate that I never see her.  I also hate that we have to schedule skype calls and often have to reschedule due to life.

I’m tired of adulting today.  And even though it’s only 7:30pm, I’m going to get ready for bed.  Everything always looks better in the morning.

It happened.  I got the job.  My last day at my current place is February 12th.  So soon!  I’ll start at the new one on February 16th (the 15th is a holiday).

The nice thing is that most of my co-workers will miss me.  Some, I am sure, will do a happy dance to have me gone.  But to be honest, those are the ones that likely give me the most grief anyway.

And that means that this summer, when my lease is up, I can move to the city.  But what a big move.

This weekend, I am seeing my best friend in person for the first time in almost three years.  She is in the area (sort of) for a work thing, so I am traveling to her for the weekend–at least, for today and tomorrow. Sunday I still need to be here to get things done for next week.  But I can’t wait.  This morning I’m just getting ready to head out.

Incidentally, why do I require so many things for one night away?  It’s ridiculous.
