Because it is awesome and also because it was in Clueless.
Random thoughts on Clueless....
+ this is my favorite Cher outfit.
+ I still wish I had a computer program to organize my wardrobe like Cher's.
+ It is perfectly acceptable to say as if in your everyday life.
+ Paul Rudd, I love you.
Not sure how all of this worked its way into my Radiohead post, but I digress.
So yea... this post doesn't really have a point. Other than to make you aware of my love for really good dramatic comedies and hobo bags. Which, let's face it, are both very important.
And a whole lot of trying to get ready for work in the middle area, but mostly just jamming out. Arcade Fire's station is my favorite, what's yours??
You might have seen my tweets about the green monster this week as I've decided to give it a go. I am horrible about eating breakfast and this is a really easy, effective, and yummy way for me to get it in. Check out the recipe here. I highly recommend it.
Happy Wednesday all.
asiago cheese bagels. football games. chalkboard paint. late night grocery shopping. the last song. borders deliveries. hen den. drinking wine. sleeping in. morning newspapers. sunday morning donuts. the social network. romantic dates folding laundry. making sub sandwiches. really long showers. reading this. pizza delivery. sleepovers with my sister. talking with friends until 3 in the morning. watching cupcake wars. catching up with my dvr. being at home. letting my hair dry naturally.
(shoes I want.)
+ How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life last year? +
Wonder – n – one that arouses awe, astonishment, surprise, or admiration; a marvel
Well… quite honestly, I didn’t. As positive as I tried to be, the honest answer is that most of the time I just wasn’t. It took me a long time to get that place, but eventually I was. However, I wouldn’t say that it was radiating from me. I wasn’t cultivating anything, especially wonder.
Although, another honest revelation, is that I don’t think I really knew wonder was something to be ‘cultivated’. I certainly experienced many things full of wonder; things that were wonder (ful).
Something else for me to work on in the new year.
+ Pretty plants in my cubicle.
+ My one tree hill playlist.
+ That first sip of coffee.
+ New How I Met Your Mother episodes.
+ Leftover mac & cheese.
+ Wearing pretty pink shirts.
+ Recalling how awesome my weekend was.
+ A huge box of goldfish crackers in my desk drawer.
+ Arcade Fire's Pandora station.
+ The excitement that a lot of snow brings.
+ Husband driving me to and from work.
+ Making homemade meatballs.
By the way...
+ Sliding and almost hitting a telephone pole.
+ Spending $300 at the vet.
+ Petty arguments.
.... make Monday's not so great.
Luckily for me, the good outweighs the bad.
Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year:
And so, this New Years Eve really seemed different. So many changes happening right in that moment. It was very exciting and we were happy to celebrate with so many of our close friends. My favorite photo from the night-- a pretty one of the girls -- sequins, champagne and countdowns.
Do you remember my little list project of 2010? I wanted to both touch base with my initial happy list for the year as well as the lists that I kept up with throughout. First things first.
2010 happy list:
15. visit wilmington, nc or portland, or.
I am very happy with the progress of my happy list in 2010. Especially since I was not working and we were on a limited budget, we managed to make it a pretty awesome year. I will be making another list for 2011. Because it does make me happy. I'm not one for resolutions really, but I think that a must-do happy list counts. It's important to be happy. And it's easy to forget the little things. Oh, and I like to make lists for things.
As you may have noticed, I only made it halfway on my weekly random lists last year. So, rather than rushing to finishing them or stopping altogether, I'm going to continue with them through 2011 and finish at the end of this year. I think it might be better this way anything since so many things are changing. Stay tuned.
I hope that 2011 brings wonderful things and happiness to us all. I don't think I can go wrong since I walked into 2011 sporting a gold sequin jacket... that has to mean something really rad, right? (Apologies for really weird and random photo- was actually checking to see if my lipstick was okay via Stacey's camera, but my jacket is the real star.)
2010 was basically like a time out for me. Not only was I not working, but due to the constraints that this put on our finances... a lot of things have been on hold. I felt like I was just biding my time, waiting for my ship to come in. Waiting.. waiting.. waiting... Dwelling.. dwelling.. Not really doing much of anything. While I thoroughly enjoyed this breather and break away from the real world, I didn't feel like myself. I felt constricted and tied to life I was living. Day in and day out. If I would have known where I would end up at the end of year, I might have felt differently, and felt different about this time away from it all. But I didn't know and I definitely didn't feel like that. I felt trapped. And useless. And stuck.
imagining that it is one year from today, I would like my word for 2011 to be-
I really need confidence in my life. In myself. In the direction my life is going. In general. I need confidence. It was what was most lacking in 2010, what I spent most of my time looking for, and something that I have not always lacked. So I missed it. I want confidence in my job, in my relationships, in my direction, and in my choices. This is my focus. This is what I want.
+ Today's prompt makes me think of Eat Pray Love. Yes?
+ On a side note, there is not enough time in the day. Today consisted of me waking up, getting ready, working all day, grocery shopping, making dinner, eating, doing the dishes, cleaning, and now finally.... at 10 pm, cuddling with Guinness and blogging. Basically I have to go to sleep within the hour in order to have nearly enough energy to do it all again tomorrow. Yikes. It will take some time, but I will adjust to this eventually. And despite all of this, I am having the hardest time falling asleep at night.
+ On a more positive note- which I am going to need a lot of this year- I am really liking my job so far.
