Folks, sometimes being an adult is hard.


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.


Weekends are never long enough.  Still on my list of chores to do: laundry, ironing, scrub the tub, vacuum.  But guess how many hours of Netflix I’ve watched already?  Oops.

I have a friend coming over this afternoon–we may take a walk or just stay inside.  It depends on what the weather decides to do.  Tomorrow I have a second date with a woman I met online–we’re going bowling.  I’m sure I will impress her with my ability to get an absurd amount of gutter balls…

I think a trip to Starbucks may be in order when my friend gets here.  Priorities.

There is entirely too much anxiety in my life right now.  And yes, I understand that most of it is self-inflicted.

I have decided that I need to move.  I can’t actually afford to move (mother fucking rental costs), but I just can’t bear to stay where I am.  So I am going to accept my parents’ offer to help me out–they’ll have to co-sign any apartment I get anyway since I don’t make 3x any rent out there.  Of course, the market is fierce and competitive and you have to move fast.  Like same day fast because they go that fast.  Fuck.

Work is good.  I had my annual review today and it went well.  Of course I focus on the one area where there was any mention of any growth needed, but that is my own problem.

Mmm, in other notes of interest, have you had the Starbucks Smores Frappuccino??  It is seriously the best thing ever in the whole world.  I have so much love for it; I don’t even care.  It’s that good.

Indulge me as I go on about school, again.

Tomorrow (Monday) I have a Greek midterm.  Tuesday I have a Reformation/Post-Reformation Theology midterm and a problem-response-analysis paper due for 1 Corinthians.  I have done minimal work on all and time is fleeting.  So I’ve taken myself to a new Starbucks (a nice one!) in order to minimize distractions and help me work on my paper.

Unfortunately, all it takes is my own mind to distract me.  Especially when I’m overwhelmed by the amount of work needed to be done in a short amount of time.

Okay, usually I love black coffee, but whatever they have brewing at this Starbucks is awful.  I’d better go so I can find something to doctor it up with.  Oh, and to do my homework.
