Sober Thoughts

Things I say, feel, and ponder.

Birks are back people.  If you haven’t noticed they sprung like weeds in the last week.  I’m okay with this and need to order some asap… as soon as payday.


It’s Earth Day ya’ll. I’ve been pronouncing it the same way Beyonce says surfboard. I hope you think twice before you litter because today of all days we should be thankful for the beautiful, grand, life size terrarium that we are lucky enough to live in. Amen.


happy friday. don’t mind me… i’ll just be sitting in my cubicle trying to survive the longest day of my life while i fight this hangover and regret all the drunk texts i sent out to my crush last night. it’s miserable. whatever happened to me turning 25 and acting like a mature adult? i threw that idea out the window and decided happy hour wasn’t good enough… i needed to relive my glory days and have a full on thirsty thursday evening. what did this result in? a nice little scrap/burn under my eye because sidewalks are for chumps and tree roots are out to get me… at least there was dirt to break my fall.
so kids… lessons can still be learned / revisited even at my age. no i can’t have more than a couple drinks during the week even if they are free. and no i’m not witty while pretending to know about sports. and no drunk texts are ever a good idea. #fail
so i hope your TGIF is off to a better start than mine. it’s taking all the will power i have not to fall asleep right now. and i’ll probably be hitting up burger king later because i just have to.

don’t drink. stay in school.

25th Bday was a success.  I got to spend it with my dearest friends and even made a few new ones (featured in pic).  But alas it is time to grow up and start behaving in an adult manor.  Also, I think I saw my last ounce of metabolism leave my body so I am going to be getting back into a work out regimen now that spring has sprung.  Who’s with me?

Walk People.

So I have a new pet peeve… it’s people that shuffle their feet. As I was sitting in my cubicle this morning I hear feet shuffling/staggering over to my desk. It sounded like a drunk person attempting to walk. I was immediately annoyed and the whole time the person was talking to me I was thinking “I can’t believe that’s how this girl actually walks”.
So people… please. Strut you’re shit. I don’t mean act like every hallway is a runway. I mean pick up your feet and take adequate strides. You are an adult. Not a toddler.

Get your shit together.

Young the Giant put on a spectacular show last night at First Ave in Minneapolis. still in awe.

Excited to see this guy open for Young the Giant tonight. Commence birthday week!!

Happy Monday. I know there are a lot of last minute colds going around so I hope you are all healthy and well. I, on the other hand, have been in quarantine all weekend focused on feeling better… and I’m almost there.
You guys… I have a crush. The good news is… I didn’t meet him on tinder. The bad news is… I haven’t seen him in like a week! I don’t want to go into detail because a week from now we probably won’t be talking. But just know my heart is starting to unthaw from this very cold and lonely winter.

Happy Wednesday to one and all.  I have a feeling we can all relate to this drawing one way or another.

So another week has come and gone. Maybe it’s the decent weather that makes the days more bearable. Maybe it’s slowly but surely picking items from your summer wardrobe to wear. Maybe it’s wearing flats instead of boots. You get the picture. The funny thing is though… it’s still only 40 degrees which in other regions is considered cold.
But have no fear, the weekend is here. Although I don’t have much going on I’m kind of okay with that. The closer my 25th birthday gets… the less I care about going out and the more I accept I’m going to be single forever. Call it an epiphany… or just plain being a loser.
