What if I just bought everything I like. All the money!

I applied to business school today. There were two video essays, which was the worst. 20 seconds to prepare your answer, 60 seconds to record it and no chance to view it when done or re-record. Whoa.

One of those days when you get free peanut m&ms with lunch and a free cupcake later and you’re trying to look moderately skinny like you did in high school for your reunion in a week. But really, cupcakes always win.

I’m feeling really optimistic today about nothing in particular and this is before my coffee. Must be the fall in the air, this summer was like a full time job unto itself. I’m really hoping fall is more relaxing. What I mean is I don’t want to hang out anymore lol. I’m all hung out.

Such a beautiful day

I took a walk over my lunch break and it was beautiful. The city is so crowded, so many lives happening and I know I’m one of the fortunate ones. I am having a hard time concentrating on anything in the good daydreaming way but also a little in the bad, anxious way. Summer is nicer than winter but I don’t know when I’ll ever feel on top of things. Even though it doesn’t get any better than this, probably.

I should not be so ok with having 1790 unread emails in my inbox right?

I get stressed a lot, but I just had a moment where I realized how lucky I am to have this weird job where I can contribute to helping people, mostly do things I find interesting and take home enough money to have a good life. A good life with good friends, a great family and the best boyfriend. I haven’t even had my coffee yet, y’all. Anyway I thought I should memorialize this moment cuz you know life feels like shit sometimes and what’s the point of that? We only get one life.
