Stuff & Things 4/23

::  I have seen a few people post about this High Brew Cold-Brew Coffee and decided I should check it out.  Oh my.  I'm in love.  I tried the Mexican Vanilla and the Salted Caramel varieties and the former is my favorite so far.

::  I'm getting some new ink done tomorrow ... and I have no idea what it's going to look like.  I'm not really that worried though.  A friend of my brother's is working on a concept piece for me, and I'm really excited to see what he's come up with. I already have three tattoos.

::  I made a bold move last week.  I initiated conversation with someone in whom I was interested and even suggested getting together. It didn't pay off.  It's not the first time this has happened, nor will it likely be the last. It never gets easier to handle rejection, but I'm still proud of myself for at least stepping out of my comfort zone a little.

::  Today is day 18 of 20 days of consecutive work days.  I might survive.  My brewery shift ends at 7 p.m. on Saturday and I'm free until 7 p.m. on Sunday when I have a brewery staff meeting.  I'm sad I don't have a completely free day, but ... I had to know this would happen eventually when I signed on for three jobs, right?  After that my next full day off is Sunday, May 10.  Yay?

:: I spent two of my lunch hours this week shopping for jeans. This task is the second worst thing only (after bathing suit shopping).  As someone who's short and curvy, jeans can be impossible to find, but I ended up buying two pairs, so I guess I did OK.

::  "Lip Sync Battle" is my new favorite thing. I don't have cable, but they put the song battles on YouTube.  That's the best part (the smack talk is fun too, I'm sure), so I don't really feel like I'm missing much.  Here's my favorite from last week -- John Krasinski vs. Anna Kendrick. I mean, John did an 'N Sync classic and then Anna showed him up with a special message. So funny!

What's up with you this week?


  1. I hate jeans. Hate. Shopping for them is one of the reasons why!

    Kudos on putting yourself out there. That's awesome! Even if it didn't pay off, you did it, and honestly? That's huge. So many people can't do that.

  2. Where'd you find the jeans? Jeans success is something to celebrate!

    It IS awesome that you took a chance. I went through a rejection that seriously took me forever to get over but I was SO glad I took that chance because I never would've known otherwise. I guarantee you it'll pay off in the end!

  3. Look at you taking a chance girl! It's good to put yourself out there from time to time (especially because you're more guarded) I think that even though it wasn't the results you hoped for it shows you that you can do it and is a bit thrilling to step out of that zone. I want to try that coffee stuff. Yum. I can't wait to see your ink either as I'm currently going through "I want another tattoo but I can't spend money on it." right now phase so I'm digging seeing other's ink!

  4. I'm glad you took a chance. I'm sorry it didn't pay off, but next time it just might!

    Sounds like work life is crazy. But at least you do get SOME time off? A little? Nah, I'd be going crazy.

  5. So glad to hear you took a chance and put yourself out there! I asked for a raise today... it was scary and I have to wait two weeks to find out if it will go through, but I feel so much better that I did it... You rock!
