Obviously, I haven’t posted anything in, like, eight months. I’m not going to apologize or explain myself because A) nobody cares and B) nothing all that interesting has happened to me anyway. Here’s the update: I am still in grad school. I got a new job. I just bought a house (a.k.a. am now in an extraordinary amount of debt for a house) and moved. I could write at length about any of these topics but they are all spectacularly boring. Seriously. If you want more details feel free to ask, but I am actively resisting becoming a boring middle-class white lady at all costs, which means I understand that nobody wants to hear about things like drapes and tile and how “just so busy!” I am.
However, the other day I was trying to find a photo on my phone that I had taken a long time ago. That’s when I realized that there is some weeeeird stuff on my Camera Roll. They say a picture is worth a thousand words; it occurred to me that these snapshots are way more emblematic of my life—not to mention more interesting—than if I were to write posts like “OMG you guys grad school is just like soooo hard!!” So, please enjoy these snippets of joy that occurred over the past eight months:

You pick which one is creepier.

I think I took this photo because I made dinner and Scott told me he would eat his asparagus but clearly he did NOT and just dumped it in the trash. So I had to shame him for it.

No idea what this is about.

That time Google (correctly) assumed that I have a big leeeessssbian crush on Bella Hadid.

I was in Texas for work so I went to the Dallas Aquarium by myself because my flight got cancelled. Of course it was mostly kids there so I definitely looked like a pedophile. Then my mom sent me what is probably the funniest text I’ve ever received.

Starbucks guy yelled “Kale?” when my drink was ready.

Oh, I went to Costa Rica! It was great. Could not recommend going there highly enough—it is one of the most special places I’ve ever been. I met lots of great people there, but this guy was my favorite.

This is my leg, THREE WEEKS after coming back from Central America, and I’m STILL PEELING. The sun is no joke the closer you get the Equator.

This is when I finally learned how to apply highlighter.
May 20, 2017
When I (yet again) mistakenly thought it would be fun to be blonde.
May 31, 2017
I think my ear hurt but I wasn’t close to a mirror so I took a picture of it to see if there was anything weird going on.

Bae Squad ❤ Only thing I miss about my old job is the people.
June 15, 2017
I went to hot Pilates and was taking pictures of my new leggings (yes, I’m THAT guy). This girl sat down next to me and only like 10 minutes later did I realize it was my friend. Shows you how observant I am. This is us all sweaty after class.

Scott got tampons for me 🙂 If that isn’t the ultimate sign of love, I don’t know what is.

I made a perfect “TU”—our logo at my new job—out of chapsticks for the New Student Orientation social and it was the most satisfying thing ever. There was also a balloon man there for the students’ kids…and me. (And yes, I do realize that the sword I’m holding is very phallic.)

Scott made me watch Fantastic Mr. Fox and in doing so introduced me to the best character ever created.
The End. Until next time…which may be another eight months. :-p
