I’ve been recently confronted with a lot of buzz regarding my self- image and “likeability.” And it all started with a night out that turned into a little too much fun (yes, there is such a thing).
I hardly drink any more these days because of my lack of time and money, so when I do, I have a good time. And yes, after about three drinks, I’m pretty happy. Put me into a social situation in which I’m uncomfortable with my company and you’ve got a social disaster. Yes, I got drunk. So drunk in fact I realized I was wasted and wanted to go home. And apparently wouldn’t take no for an answer. I said some rude comments, threw a hissy fit and bawled my eyes out in a McDonald’s parking lot until a true friend came to pick me up (at the expense of a flat tire and emergency stop for a pee break). But my real friends would have forgiven me (and the true friend who came to get me, did, I think? No, she definitely will after I treat her to some sushi.).
But for those acquaintances that I was out with, it seems to be a little be more difficult for them to forget. Not the best impression but realistically, we’ve all been there. But to hold a continuous grudge? You’re not hurting my feelings, just wasting your own energy. I don’t hold a grudge against any of them who are continually rude and unlady-like to me; I just choose not to surround myself with the negativity. And if for some reason I am granted one’s presence, I will try my hardest to be respectful.
Now that that is in the open, like always, its been the week from hell. I’ve had so much coursework, an exam and a debate- and a sick day from work because of the exhaustion. Poo. But the weekend wasn’t filled with just work, my little sister came to visit on Friday and spent the night. We took a walk to enjoy Troy Night Out, grabbed a couple snacks, and crawled into bed to watch a few episodes of Dexter. And Saturday my family and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Ferrari’s- one of my favorite Italian restaurants around. Always delicious and plenty of food to take home.
The remainder of the week brings coursework and hopefully some celebration. Not only have I officially completed (yet another) graduate course, a good friend is turning twenty-five! I’m going to be buckling down in terms of running; I have a 5k next weekend and I would love to run it without struggling. Poop update- I’ve given up. This darn kitty doesn’t care and last night after almost stepping in a wet surprise on the bathroom rug, went into lock down. I locked him out of the bathroom (where he frequents for a midnight drink) and my bedroom. I cranked up my humidifier so that I couldn’t hear him cry and scratch at my door all night. And I think it lasted all night. Poor kitty. But I hope he learned his lesson; I did. Turn down the heat before locking yourself in!
I’ll leave ya’ll with a photograph of my (recent) favorite breakfast. I eat steel-cut oats almost every morning and like to mix up different combinations. This past weekend I picked up a couple bags of frozen storebrand sliced peaches that were on sale- delicious! With a tiny bit of honey and a good dash of cinnamon, heaven.
Its almost April! Enjoy your company, health, and good eats!
